Great atmosphere although quite loud (then again I’m not 20 anymore so maybe it was just me!!!) -would love to visit again on a sunny day and sit outside. Service was great and food was superb. Will definitely be back!!

The ambiance and service was great, the food not so much. I ordered chicken tacos and the pork belly tacos, chicken was dry and the pork belly tacos with sweet plaintain not very good at all. The guacamole was not great , ive had better store bought. I honestly could've gone to Chipotle and have a better meal for way cheaper. I was also not very impressed by the drinks. I really wish I could rate this place better but I was so dissappointed.

I was charged for food I never received. My food that I did receive was horrible! My waiter barely came to the table. Very unsatisfactory

Very good vibes here! The service was good, drinks were good, food was good. I LOVE the seasoning on their tortilla chips.

My only qualm was that after they wiped down the table, the table was wet and smelled of that old rag smell.

I go to Te Amo’s often. Always great vibe, service, food. Last night service was good until it was time to leave. After paying bill and just about to exit. Was stopped by waitress and was told the the bill was short changed by $3.00 and it was rude to say to the bills could’ve been separate. She accused us of short changing the bill but her calculation wrong. Her confrontational attitude was very rude and unprofessional. If i do go back, I will never have her as my waitress again!!! I would recommend Te Amo’s but I will tell EVERYONE to refuse her as their waitress!!!

Great food and good service. We were freezing and kept our coats on the whole time because it was so cold inside. All the other diners had their coats on too. We had asked that they close the door or turn on some heat and they said no. The food was really stellar and the waiter was very well versed on the menu. Will gladly go back again.

My food came out wrong twice , and I was treated like I was the problem. If your order a meal and it does not come out correctly it’s disappointing. I spend a lot of money in there and I really didn’t not like the way I treated that day at all . I’ve seen negative comments on social media about them and still continued to support but after the other day I’m no longer going back to one of my USE TO BE favorite places

Hi Neve, We appreciate your repeat business and are terribly sorry to hear of the mistakes with your order. Your server should not have made you feel like this. It looks like you visited us on Cinco de Mayo. That day was a ton of fun, however, our kitchen was backed up with an overwhelming volume from both dine in and take out. We hope you reconsider returning in the future.

Te Amo NEVER disappoints. Went there for dinner and drinks with my girls & we had an amazing evening. Staff is superb at always making sure you’re comfortable during your visit. Food was both exquisite and quick. Definitely the spot to be in Downtown New Haven.

Te Amo is one of the best spots in downtown New Haven. Amazing food, really well curated tequila menu, and top notch service. It's also very safely managed: I felt comfortable being inside when the weather turned nasty.

The service was horrible nobody greeted at the door, we had reservations and was seated in a horrible spot. The food was great as always but the customer service and waiters need some work on. I strive for great service and to feel like I can come again at a restaurant and that was just not the energy. We felt rushed and uncomfortable they need to do better especially when they want to be tipped. How for bad service.
