    It is hard to go wrong regardless of what you pick as everything has ranged from good to exceptional. At the top of the exceptional end is the tamale appetizer. Not to be missed

    We have had this waiter before and he is on the grumpy side. I asked for a margarita with no salt and it came with salt but to be honest, I just didn’t want to get into it with him.

    This is a great spot for outdoor dining. The food is really good, as are the drinks. I recommend shrimp a La Diablo, which I’ve had 3-4 times there, always delish. Shrimp with tomatillo sauce was also excellent. My only complaint: slow service, an especially long wait to take our food order. I had to go to the hostess to ask for service.

    This was my 2nd time in a year I visited this authentic little jewel of a Mexican restaurant. Was in town for my semi annual mens fashion tradeshow & decided to have an important business dinner here. As such Amuleto did not disappoint and exceeded expectations. My dinner colleague (whose wife is a Peruvian chef) was also very happy with our drinks, food & service. The table setters for our dining experience the chips/salsa & margaritas were on point & good harbingers of things to come. We took the “tapas approach” & dispatched a small fleet of tasty appetizers including ceviche, the tamales trio, taquitos, tacos pastor, etc The thing about Amuleto I especially appreciated is while they take themselves quite seriously the place has a cool unpretentious, laid back vibe. I am sure to return to this happy place the next time I’m in town & highly recommend Amuleto to those who appreciate great Mexican food beyond the norm.

    I ordered a salad, hopeful that it would be crisp and tasty and satisfying. Disappointing would be an understatement. The ‘dressing’ was a mouthful of salt and the every bite of lettuce crunched with the sand miraculously withstood the thorough washing that I am sure of those scrumptious, wilted leaves of lettuce. Inedible!

    Lovely outdoor setting, with tent roof for protection from sun and rain. The pork tenderloin and the chili relleno were both terrific entrees. And my favorite dish on the menu is the appetizer ribs--meaty, tender and spicy.

    We waited over 40 minutes for guacamole made without cilantro. The waitstaff did not come by to check on us - we had to flag down the hostess to find out the status. Then we ordered our entrees and they came almost instantly. Hmmm. Drinks were delicious. Tacos very good. Beans so so.

    My wife and I went out for a dinner together on our nursery and we decided to eat here. I was just okay. The food is pretty me to mediocre and the chips and salsa I’ll probably some of the worst around. Margaritas are also just OK. Will not be coming back.

    This place serves amazing food! Try everything! I recommend the Negroni made with mezcal. Something about the bitters combined with smoky taste of the liquor really sets off the food on the plate. Be advised, it is *not* a sweet cocktail, but it is is a terrific food/drink combo.

    We spent a lovely summer evening sitting outside on Moody Street enjoying the excellent small plates at Amuleto. I had the seared tuna with over a jicima and carrot slaw and my husband had 3 tamales. First, of course, we had the excellent guacamole and roasted tomato salsa with their homemade tortilla chips. A very economical and enjoyable outing.
