Food was good. Prices are expensive... $13 for a traditional margarita is outrageous.

Service here is always great and makes me keep coming back. If you have a food allergy, they take it very seriously which makes the experience even more enjoyable.

I'd recommend going for drinks at the bar but the food was underwhelming for the price, it comes out warm not hot and there's little to no flavor.

It seems the quality of service is declining. Sadly, we’ve seen a noticeable (negative) change in service. If you can, avoid the server Lisa. She is incredibly inattentive. Food quality was also below expectations.

To start I made reservations for 7:45 pm and it was 8:05 pm and I was still waiting. I got up to ask what's going on it seem as they forgot we were waiting. the waiter was nice but it took longer than expected for the food to get ordered and then to get to the table, once the food came it was cold and not that great tasting, we only took a few bites and ask to take it home. I'm not sure if it was because it was a busy night but I wouldn't come back. I was expecting something better and it was a special night my boyfriend's birthday and things did not go as I imagined. the seating was also odd we were sitting in the middle next to all the other tables it was crowded and loud. They should try and arrange better seating because it wasn't cool.

We've been here a couple of times and love the view which is the star of the decor. The place is very stylish and contemporary. The bartenders were very good, and it was easy to get their attention. The waiter, after being seated however, was another story. Our food was just ok, and we expected a little better from a higher end restaurant.

We sat at a high top near the windows near the water. These are a little smaller than a typical table for four, and he did a terrible job of keeping up with clearing plates, following up on drink orders and getting our orders straight. He would come by the table and not clear table items that we were done using. It wasn't the worst service ever, but it was a pain to feel we had to manage our server, stop him to request that he take things that he has already seen...

Our incorrect order was handled once we finally flagged him down, things we cleared in the same way. It wasn't a disaster at all, but at the end of the day, we were a little disappointed.

This was my second time here and although the food was good the service was awful. We waited 15-20 min before the waiter came over to take our drink order. He never came back to check on us once the food was on the table until it was time to leave the check. We had also requested a special desert for a friend and although that came out timely we weren’t offered extra silver ware if some wanted to share and no one ever came back for us to ask.

I would be hesitant to return here.

Temazcal used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in Boston. But the past couple times I’ve been there to eat, the quality of food has gone down. We ahi tune tacos and chicken quesadillas. The margaritas has too much sour mix. Service was great and atmosphere nice.

We had an excellent server who was very attentive. Our food came out very quickly, but maybe a bit too quickly as we were still working on guacamole when dinner arrived. Not a bad thing, necessarily! Margaritas were awesome, and even though I ordered quesadillas (a boring choice), they were made great with this orange tortilla, and served with a lot of guac and Pico. Pricy night out, but worth it.

50th Birthday will family and old friends. Made a reservation for 6 with table by the window facing the bay. Food and service were excellent. Noise level was deafening, however. Just known it’s not easy to have audible conversation here, but worth a trip for the Margaritas, Fajitas and ambiance.

I thought the drinks were extremely over priced. They were full of ice and poorly flavored. Dare I say watered down...I had 2 and didn't even have a buzz. Something wasn't right. The street corn was soggy and bland.

We went to Temazcal for my daughters birthday. It is a beautiful restaurant with beautiful waterfront seating. I enjoyed their inventive menu which had many delicious vegetarian options to choose from. The food was delicious! I totally recommend this restaurant for a beautiful waterfront dining experience..

The hostess was not very friendly. The place has great ambiance. We got to the table and one seat was missing, the floor was dirty. The area is tight. The food was great. The service okay, it could be better.

Great dinner & service!! , the only problem was we were seated outside and they had no control over the outdoor lights so it was very difficult to see the menu and our food. For some reason the main light in the outdoor dining area did not turn on at all after sunset. Waitress said they had no control over it and it was controlled by the building .

Otherwise a great dinner overall for my out of town guests.

Loud, impersonal, crowded, and bland food. Other than the view of the harbor, a BIG “who cares?”.

We had a work dinner for 9 people at Temezcal. The food and service were great. Friendly and responsive wait staff, food was hot and delivered promptly. Slower on a Monday night, which worked well for our group. Great views of the water.

First time we visited Temazcal at the Seaport location. What a fantastic spot to sit outside and enjoy the view! The food is consistently good - not superb but really good for a chain. We will continue to visit and would recommend to others.

Dined here on Tuesday evening, and our server was rude, slow and inattentive. We had two children with us and it was like she never served a child before (even though the restaurant had several families at the same time). Extra dishes and silverware were left in front of the baby, forcing us to cram everything out of her way. MY hot food was placed in front of the baby because there wasn’t room left on the table and she grabbed at it. We were finishing the last bite before our waitress even came back to see how the food was (it was just fine, nothing special). When we asked to get my sons churro dessert to go, she said it would take 20 minutes so to get a scoop of ice cream instead. She could have told us that when we ordered! So we ordered the ice cream, which she never brought. We finally just left. So disappointing! It was our second time her - first time a couple years ago was much better but we definitely will not be returning.

2nd time in 2years going there and it feels like the waiters just forget about their tables. It took 30min to get our second drink. Understand it is busy, but it seemed like our waiter was ducking and avoiding us the whole time. Besides that drinks food and ambiance is great

Food was awful - chicken salad was 2 pieces of lettuce filled with corn salsa. Fish tacos were bathed in some sort of watery crema, served with cold rice and day old ‘sla. Should have taken a clue when the server said the verde sauce was sweet that kitchen has no clue how Mexican food tastes. Server clearly new we did not like the food and just shrugged it off.

I have been there multiple times but due to Labor Day holiday I think they were short on help.
We had 9p reservations and still didn’t get our drinks til 930. My daughter has celiac disease and it was difficult to get a good answer to her questions. We did get our guacamole comped but the night was not a good one overall. Very disappointed
