Tried this place for the first time last night, and WOW! Every single thing was absolutely amazing. The guacamole was probably the best guac I've ever had. Both my friend and I were blown away by how good everything was. I am normally not a big dessert person, but good god, try the flan!

Great cocktails and veggie tacos. Root vegetable ceviche was a little too spicy for us.

Very sweet experience. Great checking vax card. Best jalapeño margarita!! Different spin on Mexican food prepared beautifully. Could use a sign so you can see place from street.

First time to Sor Ynez and will definitely be back. Drinks and food were great, especially the brussel sprouts and salsa. Outdoor space is really cute (though we ate inside because it's December) and can't wait to sit outside in warmer months. Also it had a parking lot! What restaurant has that? Will definitely be back. Glad to see this addition to the neighborhood.

Fresh and delightful. Ceviche and brisket tacos were very special as was the jalapeno margarita. Wines from Mexico were surprisingly good. Excellent service. And huge free parking lot! Want to go back when the weather allows us to be in the inviting enormous outdoor space.

We thought this place was good not great. Wouldn’t go back as there are may other places to try. It’s pretty expensive for what you get. Drinks are good. Brussels were great. My tacos were just ok.

Poor communication
- information about opening hours on web site didn’t match that on Open Table

- no mention of covid policy, that proof of vaccination + photo is required to dine inside, on web site or Open Table

Rude staff
- hostess was appallingly snippy and dismissive

- when a dish was ordered w scrambled eggs but served with fried eggs, the plate was taken away and returned — with the same old fried eggs chopped up! Appalling attitude and indifference to customer service.

Would I eat here again?
Absolutely not.

Service was horrendous
Rushed our order, pushed the food upon us, they closed the kitchen 30 minutes after being seated. The servers hovered over the table pulling our plates away as we were still eating. Amature hour at its worst, really made the meal NOT enjoyable. The Resturant should have NEVER offered a reservation if that is the way they want to treat customers… the food was very good, nice portions and reasonably priced - good value. Mixed Drinks were good as well, somewhat pricy. FYI our reservation was 8:30

Best chilaquiles I’ve ever had! Inventive cocktails, phenomenal food, well designed outdoor space, and incredible, thoughtful service - better than I’ve gotten in many “fine dining” restaurants lately. You can really feel the love and soul. Can’t recommend sor ynez enough and can’t wait to go back!

Difficult to find. At night I almost gave up because the GPS took me to a corner without signs. It is in the center of an industrial building without signs. By chance I saw some lights.

Went there for the Latin jazz specifically, but the menu is constantly changing and always very good. Lots of vegan and/or vegetarian offerings as well, so lactose-intolerant folks have options.

I wanted to love this place, especially with all the vegetarian options. But it just wasn’t great unfortunately. The masa cakes needed salt; the enchiladas needed a different/ better filling; and the burrito needed heat. Won’t be back.

*SO* great!! Sor Ynez is one of my new favorite Philly restaurants! We *love* that there are so many inventive and interesting and delightful vegan options on the menu. (Some of our party is vegan, some vegan-ish, and 1 member not vegan. We love that your menu has fantastic choices for all of us!) Also, the space is gorgeous and comfortable and feels very safe during these pandemic times. We will be back, for sure and are so happy to have found you!

Staff were attentive and friendly. I’ve been before for indoor dining but opted for outside which was also lovely. Thank you for requiring proof of vaccination indoors. I’m taking my daughter and her family soon and I’m really looking forward to that!

This restaurant was like finding a diamond in the rough! We kind of just looked up restaurants in the area and boy did Sor Ynez deliver! The outdoor seating is gorgeous with different pops of color and the inside was just as fun. The food was wonderful and presented beautifully. They have something for everyone as they take great attention toward different diet types. Sor Ynez was one of the most authentic Mexican restaurants in the area. We will definitely be back!!

Honestly, everything was great from the cool vibe(outside) to the well distanced seating (cute little booths) to the decor (funky Mexican) to the service snd last but not lest the quality if the food. Awesome! We had cocktails that I can’t even explain but we’re delicious (I Gad the bourbon tamarind one and my husband had a craft beer from Mexico). There were four of us and everything we ate was phenomenal- like the queso fundido- a typical Mexican app but topped with sushito peppers that we fought over, the guac, the tlacoyo yum. My husband had the heritage pork which he is still raving about and my friends snd I had the shrimp al ajillo which is more like arroz con camarones with generous amount of shrimp with delicious toasty rice. Did I mention the cornbread with ice cream uh amazing. Weirdly though - the best part was being outside on a beautiful night enjoying all this with good friends. Can’t wait yo go back

Menu looks very promising but everything was under seasoned and was generally flavorless. Queso fundido came out congealed - we needed to use a knife to get it out of the bowl. It was also overpriced. Paid nearly $100 for a few bad cocktails, tacos, and appetizers.

Long waits and overpriced, but the food was good quality. Beware of the mushroom carnitas tacos cause they get the tortilla soggy immediately, and it’s a disaster to eat. Do get the chips and salsa!!

The spot was amazing...and for that alone I will go back. But I hope the service improves. We were one of 3 tables in the whole place and the time it took to even get a drink was brutal...10 mins for 1 marg, even a wait for a beer was too long. That aside it did slow down the night and made us feel relaxed and in no rush.
