    Date night with my wife and what a perfect place to start off our date! Drinks are amazing and the food, fantastic! The restaurant was lively and gradually got busier. The staff is extremely friendly and knows the menu and can easily give recommendations. The kitchen was buzzing and churning things out very quickly. Very high pace and they do an exceptional job of keeping up with the volume! I highly recommend Te Amo Tequila to anyone looking for great Mexican food and amazing Tequila drinks!

    Great food (sweet plantain tacos and mushroom tacos are to die for, fantastic salsa verde) and drinks, very good happy hour specials! I was a designated driver for my party and asked for a fancy looking non-alcoholic drink - got served an amazing tasting and looking cocktail. Highly recommend the place.

    The food was great, though we dined outside on the patio so we got a lot of street noise and activity. Our service was missing several components that were ordered until we asked for them a second time. Overall though I would still return to this restaurant and recommend it.

    The restaurant was nice, more of a bar feel and definitely wouldn’t be a place to bring a family in my opinion. Reason I wouldn’t go back is because of the food. It wasn't good. Looks like the food is already made and kept in warmers because my street corn was so mushy. Ordered 4 different t tacos and the meat was so dry. It definitely wasn’t freshly made to order. It was bodega style food at restaurant prices. Also first margarita was great and then the rear were all juice.

    I was extremely disappointed with the food. I got the nachos ( with pork belly ) which were not fresh and were over cooked . Additionally the drinks were subpar . I’ve been a consistent patron to this venue and I’m saddened by the food service and over all experience .

    Te Amo Happy Hour is worth every penny! Despite the fact that the restaurant’s ac was broken, our waiter was persistent and attentive. It was definitely a hiccup with the heat, however the food, margaritas and good company made it worth it

    The waiter and bartender were wonderful to work with, the bus staff were amazing constantly removing empty plates and filling water. It was very hot in New Haven this week and the AC was not working well so a bit warm but not terrible. The floor was very slippery (probably clean which is good) but a few of us from our table of 10 almost slipped with different shoes. Recommend hostess or tables be preset, we had to get our own silver ware a few times and not enough plates (we were the fist table during lunch crowd) so should have enough plates. Food was excellent and the drinks, and the servers all were so very nice and pleasant. I have worked in the restaurant industry in the past. This was a nice place and will come again, but seems like the newer business may be still working out some kinks.

    Te Amo Tequila Bar & TacosResponded on July 28, 2022Thank you for your understanding with the heat! Our AC has since been repaired. The humidity did make it difficult for the floors to dry. Thank you for visiting us!

    Four of us went here for a girl’s night out and birthday celebration . Our service was outstanding( Santiago) however it was hotter inside than outside, it was 94 degrees outside so I can only imagine what it was inside, sweat was pouring off of us. The ice in our drinks melted leaving them watered down. I will be going back anytime soon in the summer months.

    Te Amo Tequila Bar & TacosResponded on July 28, 2022We apologize for the heat this past week. Our AC unit crashed and it took a few days to get it repaired. It is now working great!

    the food was average. nothing special. margaritas were delish and would recommend going for happy hour. we arrived and sat at one of the outdoor tables and it was shaking as we moved so we decided to go to another open one and the waitress came over telling us we couldn’t sit there because its for four people but all the other four tops has couples at them. so we moved back to the other table and they fixed it. it was very odd and then another couple went to sit there afterwards and they did not say anything to them. everything was just okay there.

    The food at Te Amo is excellent with everything served generously and well done. It is a great value. Despite the restaurant being on the slow side there were a number of issues related to forgetting drink orders and drinks needing a redo. Additionally the air conditioning is a challenge since always subpar and can get quite warm and stuffy.
