Friendly service, a little slow because the restaurant was understaffed. Menu very limited, but we enjoyed everything we ordered. A good place for a quick and cheerful dinner, rather than a long stay.

Our server was SO attentive and sweet. Food was unreal. BIRRIA TACOS A MUST. The cucumber - pineapple margarita....perfection. Sitting outside with my loved ones under a string of lights on a beautiful summer night for my birthday was everything.

Perfect patio spot for casual drinks and a few tacos before a show. Quick and friendly service, tasty chips and guac, and then only a 10 minute walk to the theatre district.

The food is always so fresh and the drinks are consistently amazing. It was very busy and they seemed a little understaffed, but we didn’t have to wait too long for anything. A favorite for sure!

Not much to say here. Very expensive for what we got. The quality was low, the menu was extremely limited. Chips we're good but the guacamole needed salt.

Some items were good like the Elote, but most weren’t worth it. A bit pricey for what you get. Drinks were sent back and service wasn’t the best. It’s a drinks and hang out spot. We expected a bit more but the atmosphere was really nice. Just won’t be going back any time soon.

I keep coming back here, hoping that the food will one day surprise me, but I am consistently amazed by how bland it is. I remember having a mushroom taco once that was great, but the ones we had last night (tofu tacos and broccoli tacos) were incredibly boring and I needed loads of hot sauce to add any flavor. Vegetarian food needn't be an afterthought and this place makes it seem as such. Similarly, the salad was bland and underdressed. All this for a fairly expensive meal -- $60+ for two people who didn't eat a ton and only had a cocktail.

Nice restaurant, inventive cuisine in cool, up & coming location. Bit pricey for the food but it's Boston. And the quality of the food and drink was very good. Would have liked to have tried the broccoli tacos, but enjoyed the fish, duck, barbacoa, scallop, carnitas and chicken tinga.

The chips & guacamole were very good, again, $12 seems a bit on the high side but the chips were very good and the guac was very good and plentiful.

Will probably be back.

Compared to the Dorchester location which we love, the south end location was an enormous disappointment. Service was terrible and the food was a disappointment. Multiple items on the menu were not available.

I live in Dorchester so I usually go to the Lower Mills location. Really enjoyed dining in the courtyard in the South End this time. As usual food and service were both great.

I like this place a lot for a casual meal, but my dinner was not great this time. The duck tacos were completely dried out, so it was almost like eating duck jerky. I am hoping next time is better!

Best margaritas in town! Loved the decor of the outdoor patio and the drinks were all amazing. There were not many options for food for vegetarians so I stuck with the guac and chips and street corn as my meal.

I really love Yellow Door when the vegetarian tacos are on point, sometimes they are amazing and sometimes they are really awful. I keep coming back because they have great service and I’m always hopeful their have been improvements or perhaps some consultation on what non-meat eaters are looking for in their tacos.
