    The food at Te Amo is excellent with everything served generously and well done. It is a great value. Despite the restaurant being on the slow side there were a number of issues related to forgetting drink orders and drinks needing a redo. Additionally the air conditioning is a challenge since always subpar and can get quite warm and stuffy.

    Ordered the tortilla red and Verde salsa, the tortillas were ok, ordered the chicken tacos, the chicken was reheated, to what it felt like more then once, hard to chew, no flavor whatsoever

    High energy club-style dining with attentive service staff and reasonable food at a decent price. Definitely would go back for tequila drinks and "pub grub" with a sort-of Mexican flair but but not all that special really.

    The high table seating was uncomfortable, and unanticipated for a reservation that was made well in advance and with several other open table options that were never filled with reservations. The server/ service was pleasant and very quick, honestly good. The mushroom tacos were very under seasoned and quite bland, along with the salsa. The elote was hardly real elote, VERY overcooked. Tres leches was AMAZING and the saving grace of the meal.

    The drinks were nice and strong, the food was good but some taste was off on the elote and pernod tacos. But the steak tacos and pork belly was AMAZING.

    Very convenient if you are going to a show in the Shubbert Theater. Food was great for the price. My plantain pork belly tacos were excellent. My wife’s pernil tacos were even better. Tamales were mediocre. Drinks were on point! Younger crowd, a few drunk kids very early on! We’ll be back thought
