Went for restaraunt week. Low key place, no one will look for you here if u understand what i mean. Chairs could be better but i dont think its meant to sit there for hours like i did. Server was excellent, made me feel comfortable.

Food&drinks:
Margaritas are perfection. Had a basic one and a spicy one.

Food started with an excellent salad. Small portion, but the perfect portion. You actually taste the flavors. Top 3 salads ive ever had.

Then a beef rib with sour cream drizzled, surrounded with burrito ingredients like rice corn peppers. Very very good but the rice was luke warm. Still tasty but im being picky for this reviews sake. Rib falls apart perfectly though plus DIDNT need salt or pepper.

last, there were two dessert options. Choc cake or a caramel custard thing. Wanted the cake but they didnt have any. From the menus description of the cake, i can see why it was all gone. Had to settle for the custard. I like caramel but didnt like the custard. Its not nasty, just not something id normally buy if i wasnt there to try new things. Thats why i did 4 stars food.

I want to go back but its definitely a place you go with someone else so id have to find a lady first UNLESS i just hit the bar, get a drink real quick, or catch the 4th quarter of a game

I have wanted to try Xochitl since I moved to Philly nearly three years ago--and it did not disappoint! My friend and I shared the customizable guacamole (AMAZING--and we so appreciated the extra chips brought to the table!!), each got the carnitas tacos (fell apart but so flavorful), and then split the chocolate tres leche (my friend's favorite of the night). I couldn't decide what was the best dish I had because they were all so good. We went somewhat early in the evening (6pm reservation), so we didn't encounter the noise that other reviews mentioned. Would absolutely return--excited to!

Beautiful restaurant, with friendly staff. We dined for a special occasion, and I was a little disappointed that the food wasn't as special as I was hoping, but overall a good experience.

Small restaurant off of a bar area. Great fun drinks and guacamole is a reason to try this place. We had the spicy beef brisket tacos and they were delicious.

This was my first time dining at Xochitl. This was recommended by a friend and they said they thought the food was great when they went. It was a cute and quiet restaurant. For a Wednesday night, the noise level was very low which was nice.

My biggest issue was in the service. There was only three of us. We each ordered a drink, the custom guacamole (where you fill it out on a card) and 3 entrees. I was very disappointed that they served me the wrong dish. I ordered the seafood enchilada and was given a vegetable enchilada. The was very disappointed because the waitress we had reiterated our entree orders after our drink orders came in.

Overall the food was good, and I didn't want to make a big deal considering that the food took a while to come out and the rest of my party was already served. I didn't realize it was that it was the wrong dish until after I bit in.

My experience here was pretty good because of the quality of the food, but the service I wasn't a fan of.
