Food is always delicious and fresh, Best Margaritas in the city. No mixes or added sweeteners. Service is always friendly. It was very busy and took as while for our drinks to arrive but we've been dining here since they opened and are never disappointed.
I have been searching for a place like this for years and finally found it! The food was the best I've ever had. Real authentic flavors from top to bottom. Our server was amazing to say the least. Extremely knowledgeable about everything at the restaurant and funny too! He made the experience memorable.
Tequila's served well for our special occasion dinner. While a bit pricey, the food was delicious and the restaurant was beautiful. The noise level was quite loud, but I have no real complaints- I'll go again!
I've been going to here for years and unfortunately my wife and I don't get out in the city as much as we'd like. We used to live in Philly and Tequilas was a regular spot for us - we even went on our first date there so there's a bunch of nostalgia for us. I'm hoping it was a one-off thing but the service we received this time when we went was poor. It seemed like the wait staff was extremely overworked because our waiter only came by once after taking our order. Sat outside as we usually do, that's why it was loud. Food was excellent as always, but it took 45 minutes from ordering until getting our food. This wouldn't have been a problem, but we ran out of chips and had to start eating the Mango/Crabmeat Guac with a spoon. It was still good but not the same thing. I'm hoping that a few people on the wait & kitchen staff just called out last minute which caused them to be spread thin. Will definitely go back, but if the service is like this again, may need to reconsider. They also seem to have significantly raised their prices recently. One entree, guac, a refill of chips and some corn tortillas came to almost $60 without tip.
Very warm and friendly place but as others have commented too loud to have a conversation or hear the waiter. The food was ok but not great. The chicken lava bowl was very good but the tortillas that came with it were not. The Tuna Ceviche had no flavor. The Caeser salad was bland. Spent over $100 and won't be back.
Food is terrific.
We love it every time!
I visit every time I travel to Philly. The menu is varied and different than your typical Mexican restaurant.
Excellent food and service. Great menu with lots of interesting choices. The barramundi salsa tequila was excellent.
Too noisy. We could not hear each other at our table
Had a fantastic short rib and scallop meal. The server was well informed and attentive. The food is always delicious. Favorite place to eat when in town . Never disappointed
Love the restaurant. Brought friends with us who had never been to the restaurant, we sat in the back room which was extremely noisy. Our young server though very nice failed miserably. Had to ask for our drinks and water 4+ times. Didn't know the tequila selection very well. In addition he seem very disoganized and forgetful. After telling our friends how spectacular the restaurant was, I was a bit embarrassed for my selection. But I will be back assuming this was a one off.
Tequila is a vibrant, friendly place to share good food with family and friends
Really like this place. Tasty food, superb service, noise level not bad, even on a busy Saturday evening. We will certainly go back.
Excellent restaurant, service was great, staff was helpful, and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.
My husband and I had a great date night at Tequila’s! The food and drinks were amazing. What really stood out to me was the service. Every customer was treated with the same friendly service. Every interaction lead to a smile on our faces.
Wonderful food, drinks and service.
My wife and I decided to give Tequila a try on a random Friday evening. The good: Service was great. Didn’t feel rushed nor were we neglected. Waiter sensed our timing and served accordingly. The OK: drinks were OK. Not great but just ok. Fork in old city has a much better mixologist. The food was ok. The fish was ok. Nothing exciting or to write about. It was just ok. The beef was also just ok. It didn’t grab you. The sauces didn’t taste authentic. The bad: nothing really horrible. Again, the whole experience was ok. The food gave us an underwhelmed feeling but nothing egregious. The worst thing we tried were the empanadas. They were mushy (soggy) and didn’t have enough filling... Verdict: not sure we would return. The service was great. The food was forgettable. I can get that anywhere and pay less.
Great as always!
I’ve always thought Tequilas is a cool place for drinks or a fun happy hour. The Eat in experience was different for me. The service was great but the food was dissappointing. My dish came out cold and the vegetables were too salty to eat. For the price, I know the food could have been better.
The food was great and the tequila menu was great as well. I can't wait to go back and check it out again!
The Ceveche was amazing. The special, fish taco, was very good and reasonably priced. Restaurant has nice ambience and not noisy.
Visited Tequila's prior to a show at the Kimmel. Service was top notch and food was very tasty high-end Mexican. Would definitely recommend to others looking for a taste treat.
Food was great. Ambiance wasn’t bad. Waiter was a bit much, but that might just have been us. Overall good.
Food was great and service attentive.
The service was great. Good menu with many special items as well. The guacamole was great and was the food. Highly recommend.
Manuel is the best! Always enjoy out time at Tequilas.
Little pricey for Mexican food but food was good and service was very good.
Food was great, as always. Carne Asda Tapenqena was excellent. Lagostino's were delicious as was the guacamole. Wine was good. Our only slight disappointment was the Pitcher of Margarita's - it really didn't taste like any tequila was in it, it was very weak and watery.
This restaurant was a lot bigger inside than I expected. They fill every available spot with tables. The service was excellent and very attentive. As Texans, we didn’t have high expectations for Mexican food in Philadelphia. We were pleasantly surprised. They had a nice fresh & modern take on traditional favorites. We both went with seafood dishes. The tiger prawns were the highlight of the meal. However, the crab & mango guacamole was a close 2nd. It was an adventurous selection for us, and were glad we did.
The seafood enchiladas had good subtle flavors, but it was overshadowed by the other dishes.
This is now on our must visit list, on our next trip to philly.
A friend recommended Tequila's and we were not disappointed. There is an extensive tequila list for the afficianado. The food is excellent and there is a large variety of choices. It's a little noisy but not bad. Definitely a good choice and convenient to Center City.
Always great, authentic Mexican fare. We love this place!
The menu could be a little bigger (more fresh fish and proteins please..?) but what’s on it is very tasty - try the shrimp in Chihuahua cheese app - it was fantastic. Homemade chips and guacamole were really good too...seafood ceviche was another winner. Fun atmosphere. Def will return again soon.
Good Mexican food in a beautiful old Philadelphia building. The bar is lively, and architectural detail in this 19th century townhouse is lovely. Great selection of tequilas and mezcal, and a very knowledgable wait staff to help guide you through the selections. Guacamole and Fundita were excellent. Chicken mole had a nice sauce but chicken was a bit dry this time. This was second time I dined there and I would recommend it for folks looking for Mexican in Center City.
Amazing lava bowl chicken and the steak was very tender. The recommended Alipus mezcal was smoky and delightful.
What a great restaurant experience. From the food to the wine and the service everything was great. I highly recommend this restaurant. The seafood was perfectly cooked and presented. Service was a little rushed but other than that perfect.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The waiters were attentive and friendly, which we liked but it could be off-putting to anyone who likes to be left alone more. They have an excellent selection of tequilas and mezcal on their drink menu. Flan was excellent!
Great food and service. Huge variety of tequilas!
The service and food are excellent. The ‘specials’ are unusual and delicious combinations, but everything I’ve tried on the menu has been excellent. Last time the noise was so loud it was so impossible to carry on a conversation with my friends. This time I requested a quieter table and we were seated in a less noisy area which was much better for socializing.
