    The food is about is authentic and the about as good as you’ll find in Philly. That said the service needs to be fine tuned. Everything can to the table hot and prepared correctly the servers however were nonchalant and borderline unprofessional. As far as ambience think “music club, sitting at the bar ordering apps”…boisterous to say the least. Go with that in mind and you’ll have a good time.

    Did not like most of the food. Don’t like the taste of the chicken tacos. The fish tacos were bland and overdressed. Guacamole was bland need salt. Overall won’t recommend

    The service was terrible - probably worst I've ever experienced. $17 margaritas tasted like they should've been $5. Food was poorly presented.

    I was really looking forward to eating at Sueno because of the reviews, but I was disappointed with what I ordered. The queso fundido came with flour tortillas instead of the traditional corn tortillas and the Al Pastor tacos were lacking in flavor. The drinks were amazing. Maybe it just wasn't my night. IDK.

    We wanted to sit outside and were placed at a small table that was unbalanced and rocked. It was the furthest one back and we felt very far from the restaurant and their environment. Homeless continually approached us as we were not close to to the restaurant. Server seemed to forget about us, but gratuity is out on even for two people, so maybe she didn’t need to do a good job due to that.

    We had requested a table indoors in a quiet corner as my husband is hard of hearing but the music was blaringly loud indoors so the hostess asked us if we'd like to sit outside, warning us that the music was very loud indoors. We did sit outside and we were basically in the street with trucks, cars and motorcycles continuously going by and panhandlers asking us for money several times. I had asked what kind of white wine they had and was told that they only had "red or white" and that it was basically a tequila bar. Ok, I understand that but really, no wine choices whatsoever? I did get a glass of white nondescript wine and then asked for a second only to be told they were out of it. In the middle of the city on a busy evening how do you run out of white wine and not just go buy some more? We waited over 15 minutes for the red wine to come at which point our meals were completely finished. I also really don't understand why the music indoors had to be that loud. It's not like it's a dance hall. Was really not thrilled at all with the total experience.

    Very disappointed in the quality of drinks and the food. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and there was absolutely zero trace of tequila in it. We only drank half of it because it was all juice and although the waitress was receptive to us at first once she realized we stopped drinking it she didn’t ask any questions and just brought us the bill. The appetizer came out right away which was great but then not 2 seconds later the entrees came out. It felt very rushed and the food wasn’t that good, little flavor. Had high hopes for this place but will not be back.

    The service was kind and friendly, the food and drinks were good, but the music was so loud at 6 PM on a Wednesday that we had to ask to be seated outside. The buses, wailing sirens, helicopters, and other traffic going by our picnic table outside were much quieter and we could hear each other speak. The staff was extremely accommodating to our request to move, so we appreciated that very much.

    The food and drinks were fantastic. The only thing not enjoyable was how loud the music was. I couldn’t hear one of the two other people at the table without leaning all the way over my plate. Odd vibe for 5:30 on a Thursday. I asked to see if they could turn it down a little but they wouldn’t.

    Great experience! We went for drinks but also got food. Ended up with the margarita flights, elote, tacos, chicken empanadas, and churros to go! We sat upstairs but Sueno has 3 levels of seating. We sat upstairs and assume the busier it got the 2nd floor bar would open up. We left early but had the experience of seeing the transition from evening well lit setting to more of a dim light night club! The music was at a perfect level when we left. We were able to continue to talk but heard the music well. Great downtown Philly experience.

    Came to Sueno for happy hour with two friends last weekend. We made reservations for easier seating since Center City can get super busy after 5 pm. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure we knew the specials. She recommended the tacos which were pretty good. The margaritas were not that impressive. I ordered the $25 pitcher and they fill it halfway with ice. When I asked if they could remake it with light ice the waitress said they aren’t allowed to do light ice. Will I be back? Eh, probably not but it was a cool spot to meet up after work!

    I think there is something wrong about this restaurant and I am going to follow up with the Better Business Bureau. There were 4 taxes added to the bill-- one was a service charge for using a credit card- which I was using cash, one was gratuity for 18% for two people ( which is ok) , one was tax for liquor ?? , one was another tax additional to the above..... my bill was 49$ I had to pay 64$..... when asked about it, the waitress said we had to talk to the manager... waited 15 minutes and gave up and paid.... something is wrong here. They are adding charges to bills that make O sense.... also charged me for three drinks and only had 2.....
