Ordered the mix fajitas and the Fresca cocktail, both were excellent. The only thing better than the food was the service. Very attentive, helpful, and polite. Wish we had room for dessert, as the menu looked excellent.

Overhead Lighting in the main dining room was too bright. Wonderful meal but a dimmer lit dining experience would have been nice.

I have been here before and loved it, but this time we decided to go for our anniversary. The drinks and food were very bland. Manager checked on us twice, which was kind. Server was good. Would not head back anytime soon, unfortunately.

The food tasted good but a bit salty. It took about 12 minutes after being seated to get first contact with the server. Hadn't had any water or drink order until then. We were seated at a two person table in between two very large very loud parties and two feet from another 4 person table. It was quite hard to even hear my wife over the large parties around us. My table wasn't completely wiped clean when we sat down, there was some left over food there and I had a slightly dirty side plate. It is a very large restaurant and I think they were having trouble keeping up with the volume on a Saturday night. Though this is all a common trend for us in the Lynnfield Marketplace, most restaurants are very loud and busy and they all seem to struggle at peak with handling the volume.

It wasn't terrible. But I am not sure I would go back.

Really love this place, been here many times and always proves enjoyable. Tonight my husband and I checked in for our 7:15p reservations and it was extremely busy (1hr45 for walk ins) but told about five minutes for our table. After about 20 minutes we inquired as to the wait. We were greeted by Antonia who explained the wait issue, apologized and seated us within a few minutes thereafter. She told us that or apps would be complementary and again apologized for the wait. She checked on us several times throughout our dinner, as well. We each had a beer and guac and chicken taquitos for our apps. Main courses ordered salmon lettuce “tacos” and steak fajitas. The waitstaff were professional and pleasant, and all our food tasted fabulous. When our bill arrived the waitress told us Antonia had comped our apps AND drinks! She definitely went above and beyond to ensure we received excellent customer service. We had a wonderful evening and greatly appreciate the quality service Antonia provided to make it so! Thank you again !!

Server was personable and efficient but backups in the kitchen significantly delayed us getting our entrees. Certainly not her fault but she was apologetic.
We thought the food quality and presentation were great - better than we anticipated. We would go again with hopes the kitchen was running better.

I went at lunchtime, so it was very quiet. I believe in the evening, it would be much noisier. However, the food will still be fantastic. This is not your everyday Mexican restaurant.

We frequent Temazcal and the service is always good as is the food. The staff is generally accommodating which is super important when dining with small children. The only thing that was slightly off on the last trip was that I ordered the chorizo enchiladas and 1 of the three was chicken to my surprise. Not a big deal at all for me since I typically order the chicken enchiladas verde. We'll be back for sure, if not for the enchiladas, for the chips and salsas/bean dip (yum!).

First time at Temezcal and won’t be the last. Fish and veggie tacos were outstanding along with a great take on fried calamari. Sangria cocktails were delish. Ambience was very pleasant and service terrific. Very glad we finally went.

The volume of the music was FAR TOO LOUD. My friend and I were shouting at each other to try to have a conversation, even though the restaurant and bar were not crowded on the weeknight we were there. Food was good, service was great, but I don't know if I'd go back to the Lynnfield location. I'd try another.

Everything was fine once seated. To get seated was a trial. We walk up, get told 30 min. Walk around Marketstreet a bit, come back and sit for another 30 minutes before I pull out my phone, find the restaurant in OpenTable, book a table for 15 minutes later. Walk up 5 min later, show them the OpenTable reservation and we get seated.

I don’t know if the waiting twice the suggested wait got us a table or if it was the OpenTable reservation, but I do know I got OpenTable points for the reservation. Shrug.

Great food and atmosphere. One of our party members has an allergy to shell fish and the chef for each order that she made came over and presented her with her dish assuring no cross contamination. Outstanding and absolutely no rushing you. Also lobster guacamole was great!!

We want to give us a special thank you to restaurant manager Gilberto Jimenez who was extremely attentive to our challenging food allergies and sensitivities. He should be commended for his high quality service. Thank you!

Food was great - plenty of choices. Service was good. Music was loud, and definitely not easy to talk over during dinner. Aside from the music selection, it was a very nice evening enjoyed by all.

Making a reservation online was super easy and we arrived early and were seated right away I did indicate that we were celebrating a birthday but there was no acknowledgement of such. We love the queso here, probably our favorite spot for it. Drinks are good, food is good. Service is good. One app plate was sent back as it was dirty and was never replaced.

We visited, Thursday 8/15 at 6pm, with reservations we made at Open Table. We sat down right before 6pm. This was our fist visit. At 6:20pm I asked the hostess if we could get my toddler daughter something to drink. At about 6:25 we asked if we could order our drinks, and all of our food. The manager had to take the order. We ordered queso, fajitas and a kids meal. At 6:45 the waitress said everything should be coming out, we asked about our appetizer (queso). The manager put it in as an entrée vs appetizer. We got a million apologies, but it was such a frustrating night. Nothing went right, from ordering to leaving each step was a hassle. They told us they over sat the waitress, with 4 parties at once. She apologized for us not having good service. Even with a manager stepping in, we only got an apology….I am shocked that our appetizer wasn’t at least comped, especially because we never even got it as an appetizer. It came with our meal and we didn’t really even eat all but a few bites. I even had to ask for my daughters dessert since it wasn’t offered. I am completely disappointed in this visit. I also reached out to them a week ago with no response.

This is the third time I've eaten here but by far enjoyed the food more. I ordered the tuna tacos lettuce wraps and though messy to eat were very good. I feel like the food has improved since the last time I went when Temazcal first opened in Lynnfield. The outside eating area is nice too.
