Highly recommended! Our food was absolutely delicious and the portions were huge. Our waitress Maria was so attentive, she was the best. The owner came over to our table and just started a conversation he was so sweet and humble. You will not be disappointed!

So glad I found this place last minute! The ambience is nice, food was delicious, my waiter Steven was super nice and so attentive... he was so sweet and brought me and my boyfriend out a sparkler with desert to sing Happy Anniversary!

Get the "Perfect Patron Margherita " they're delicious and STRONG, Lol.... the Buffalo Chicken Flautas were amazing!

Definitely going back!

Passion fruit margarita was terrible - tasted like airplane orange juice. Everything else was fine (fajitas, guacamole, salad) but overpriced. Don’t understand the hype - this place was packed. Save yourself money and go next door to one of the more casual places.

We were sitting outside and a couple were seated at the table right next to ours, actually in back, they were allowed to bring a very large white very long hair beautiful dog in and put it within inches from us, now I am a dog lover however… the tables were close, The staff person doing the seating never asked if anyone at our table had animal allergies or if we would mind if this dogs whose tail was wagging and hitting and our friends the entire meal.

well that is what happened the entire meal the dog stood between the two guest and wagged his tail and hit our dinner companions on their arms. Our dinner companions are not dog people. Now we did not want to say anything as to put a damper on our evening but they should have at least ask or not allow dogs of that size to come in even the outside seating which was very close and not that open.

Food was absolutely delicious! We started off outside but eventually had to move inside due to there being lots of bees around the outdoor seating area.

We ordered our granddaughters lunch with our drinks but it never arrived. It took over an hour to get our meal and we were the second table seated outside. Other tables arrived after us and finished their meals before we got ours. Their only explanation was that they had a large party inside but that didn’t effect any of the other tables outside.

Tequila Escape is an overpriced Mexican Food restaurant. We had a party of 8. It is a very small restaurant and it was packed. They squeezed us in a booth and we were very uncomfortable. It was Saturday night so it was very busy. The noise level was so high and it was hard to hold a conversation. Our reservation was at 7:15 pm and we were served dinner at 9:00pm. The only reason we did not starve was because we ordered a very small and expensive guacamole for an appetizer. The food was decent. I love Mexican food and I have had better for half the price. The drinks were excellent, kudos to the bartenders. Our waitress was very sweet. Overall, this is a good place for a quick bite and a cocktail. If you are on a date night or were hoping to have a conversation with your party, then this is not the place for you.

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.

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.
