The service was good especially our server. However, our server failed to explain the add on charges for the fajitas ordered which made the price for fajitas very “unfriendly”! Sadly when I questioned the bill to better understand our very sweet server disappeared. On a more positive note, we will happily go back because the dining experience was good and the mixologist was superb!

Understaffed but understandably so given that no one can get staff these days. Food was just okay but the guacamole is awful.

We were so disappointed with the service. This was more of an issue with how this was being managed than the server, we suspect but every single thing took forever. The worst part was the glass of wine my mother ordered when she got her food arrived with the check. We got a margarita, lemonade, nachos and they all took forever. Mistakes on the bill too.

Service started off slow, but then the whole staff picked it up and made the remainder of the evening excellent. Food was terrific! Loved the ambiance, though a bit noisy. Will definitely go back!

Just a really great experience. Great food and great atmosphere.

I ordered flautas as an appetizer and my wife's quesadillas came out first and I thought that was the flautas having never had them before.

Well they said how was the quesadilla which i had shared with everyone and they realized the mistake, put in a rush order for my wife's quesadilla and everything was fine. I had shrimp tacos which were tasty.

I really have no complaints and got a 10% becuz we were going to Ridgefield Playhouse.

Fabulous menu of Mexican specialties. The food choices we had were delicious and presented nicely. The tequila and specialty drink menu was a full array of creative choices. The staff was welcoming and attentive. Due to covid-19 restrictions outdoor seating was under a tent aa well a tables under umbrellas taking over a shared parking lot with other businesses in the same plaza. Their space was creatively decorated with beautiful flowering plants. All in all we had a nice time and look forward to going back there again.

Went on a Monday for Happy Hour before a concert, so we sat at bar to get what we assumed would be faster service. Waited about 10 minutes before being asked if we wanted a drink (remember we were sitting at the bar and had to wait this long! Place was half empty!), we asked what drinks are offered during HH, was told HH not in effect due to day after a Holiday. Say what?? But we were already there so.....drinks came and were OK but overpriced for what we got ($13 for a mojito, meh). Ordered food, waited about 30 minutes for lobster guac and chips, got about 4 morsels of lobster, $18, meh. Then waited another 30 minutes for our tacos and empenadas. Only then did they mention the kitchen is a bit backed up. Really?? Why not mention this when you sit down so you can plan ahead a bit?? Food was OK but again overpriced for what we got (3 of each item, $18 per order, meh). Service was OK but bartenders weren't overly friendly, seemed to be going throught the motions a bit. So we won't be going back unless with friends who are buying.

Food was served quickly after ordered , hot and presented nicely on the dinner plate. I found the waitress to be not attentive. I had to request the dinner plates to be cleared from the table after a long wait.

This was our 1st, and probably last visit to Tequila Escape. Overpriced for average food & service. Our entrees were good, not amazing, which for the price I expected better. My husband's entree came but something happened with mine. I got a quick apology from our server as she passed by our table & all she said was the runner brought it back, she'll find out what happened & then she didn't come back, then my dinner showed up 10 minutes later. I assume they didn't make it gluten free as requested & had to remake it, but an explanation would have been nice while I watched my husband eat his dinner. (good thing he didn't wait for mine to come or his would have gotten cold) She also didn't check back with us when my entree did finally show up, I was about 3 bites away from being done when she ran by & asked if everything is ok. My blood orange margarita was ok, tasted more like grapefruit than blood orange. My husband ordered tequila & soda, and I was floored when we got the bill & were charged $19 for it!! (for comparison my margarita was $13) I don't usually write reviews like this but needed to share our experience, overpriced as it was. So if you don't mind paying too much for average food & service then this is the place for you!

Modern Mexican cuisine and craft cocktails. We sat outside because it was a beautiful afternoon/evening. Our favorites were the lobster stuffed avocado and the octopus.

The food was amazing like always. However, the waitress was very absent most of the night and she never introduced herself so we never knew her name. We had to ask other staff for more water and to get the check at the end of our dinner. The waitress even gave us a dessert menu but never returned to ask if we would’ve liked to order dessert. However, it was nice when she brought us a candle and a birthday shot for my fiancée’s birthday. Overall, Tequila Escape is a fantastic restaurant! They just had an off-night from a service perspective.

A delightful lunch outdoors under the tent. We both got the homemade tacco bowl salad with shrimp and it was delicious. Shrimp flavored just right. And a glass each of rose on a hot summer's day was the topper. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We'll be back!
