The food was terrible. The guacamole with mango and crabmeat was bland and the crab tasted fishy and canned. I ordered the grouper special and it seemed as though it had been sitting underneath the heat lamps for a very long time as the edges of the fish were hard and all of it was so dry. My husband’s molcajete dish was so watery it was pretty much soup. When we asked for more tortillas, the server brought them over and since there was no room on the table, instead of clearing our appetizers and bowl of tortilla chips out of the way, he actually THREW the dish of tortillas on top of the dishes that needed to be cleared. Very disappointing. We would never dine there again.
WOW WOW WOW. We were in town to see a concert and staying near Rittenhouse Square. I researched restaurants and found Tequilas. We couldn't be happier with the service, food and cocktails.
My next Philadelphia visit will include a meal and cocktail at Tequilas for sure!
One word. Meh! Food was awful. Shrimp
Wrapped in bacon was dryed out and tough. Margaritas were ok. Service was good. Really loud. I won’t return
Wonderful meal & drinks
Tequila’s offers authentic Mexican cuisine in an upscale but fun environment. We started our night out with a cantina of Margaritas with the owner’s distilled tequila. Chips, homemade salsa, fresh and light guacamole began our muy delicioso dining experience. Camarones Rellenos, Chile Rellenos and Langostino lightly buttered with just the right amount of garlic hit the mark every time! The staff are impeccable and contribute to a fun time...every single visit!
We are always happy after we get together at this restaurant! Highly Recommended!!
All in all, very pleasant time.
The food is truly excellent. The lobster tacos appetizer (a special) was delicious and the branzino, done Mexican style, was outstanding. Fast service. Also, delicious drinks. One caveat: it is pricey. This is not your tia's taqueria.
We think the food are overpriced. They either too salty or too sweet. Good ambience but average food.
Always good. Never disappointing.
"I love romantic yet comfortable atmosphere of this restaurant. From the outside, it looks small and quaint. To my surprise, the space was quite large and spacious especially for large groups– A friend recommended the cocktail shortrib and I could see why. spicy and sweet definitely a hit. For dinner, I had the scallops which were absolutely amazing. Many at the table had the steak and were raving. The service was impeccable. I definitely would return to try more dishes and have already recommended to friends.
Great food and wonderful service make for a terrific dinner
Great food and ambience just super loud!
Terrific, friendly service. It is always a wonderful experience both in environment and food.
Lively, classy atmosphere with classic Mexican dishes. Warm service and great cocktails with their signature tequila. Perfect for dates, special occasions or general dining.
Great food and great service. Margaritas were great!
Birthday dinner with my close friend
It says casual dress, but we were under dressed for dinner big time. It’s pretty fancy. The Tres Leches cake is to die for! I also had the Cochinita Pibil which was AMAZING. It is pork loin wrapped in banana leaves baked in citrus and peppers, served alongside whole beans and plantains. Mouthwatering.
Raymundo, our server, was awesome. Food very good. We will be back.
Overall a very nice place. Charging $1 more if you want a drink on the rocks is crazy. Very disappointing when you are nickel and diming your guests when they are already paying $14 for a drink.
We had a wonderful evening and dinner was delicious. The wait staff was very attentive and was able to answer any of our questions about the differences in the Tequila margarita’s to the entrees. The guacamole with crabmeat and pineapple was very interesting , I wish it came in the bigger lava bowl I could make a meal out of that.
It’s a popular place so I’m glad we made reservations.
Very good food, should be for the price. Fresh ingredients, loved the guacamole with crabmeat and pineapple!
The space is really nice, though pretty loud at dinner and on top of your neighbors. The bar, at happy hour especially, is fantastic. Great tequila drinks, good prices. Lively atmosphere. Dinner was very good, though my skirt steak was slightly overdone. The service was friendly and efficient—though perhaps too efficient as our server failed to ask us or offer dessert. A very good experience that just missed out on excellent.
It was fantastic in every way!
Always awesome - Tequila’s is a favorite and never disappoints!
nice staff although could be better, the atmosphere is nice in most places in the restaurant (in some places its shabby), the banana cake was very good
room temperature chewy flavorless stake, not so fresh salad, seasonings on food felt weird / forced (no love), the flan was not very good, room temp at 65 degrees, $170 for two
Our waiter was excellent. I had left my cell phone behind and he found us nearly 2 blocks away and returned it. Awesome!
The regular menu should have been available despite it being Valentine's Day. A female friend and I (obviously not romantically involved) were forced to order from the prix fixe menu and were limited in what drinks we could also order as well.
The ambiance is very pleasant. The only menu available was set but the choices were excellent. However the giant prawns were overcooked (on both diners' plates), which detracted from an otherwise excellent dinner.
We were in a rush and wanted to do Valentines Dinner and make the Ash Wednesday mass across the street. The service was wonderful, food was excellent! Thank you, Tequilas for being top notch and gracious in your accommodation!
While the food was good, I felt they should have a variety of mid-price range dishes to choose from. Maybe lunch might have that option. You basically have the option of a $30 plate. Decided to go with one of the steak dishes and a little disappointed the medium rare steak we ordered was over cooked. Flavor was great but I think a steak should be eaten with some pink in the middle. Our server and the host were very friendly and the restaurant has a great vibe. I might enjoy it more for appetizer's and drinks in the bar area.
Go there 3-4 times a year. Always great eats. Ceviche is our go to App. Servers are all knowledgeable and personable. The Jalapeno margarita will wake you up.
We really enjoyed how Tequila's updates Mexican standards and also has very inventive dishes. The bar menu went way beyond margaritas, but those were great, too. The Mexican Old Fashioned was a standout. Their salsas were very fresh, with just the right seasonings. I loved their raw oysters with chipotle sauce, cilantro, and avocado--you will forget you ever liked them with cocktail sauce! The fish with garlic sauce was light and flavorful, and they actually serve vegetables here (unlike a lot of Mexican restaurants). My husband and son enjoyed the tortilla soup with chicken (although it was a little heavy on the tortillas) and chicken dishes. The flan was nothing special, but the tres leches cake was a great way to end the meal. Oh, and our waiter was excellent with bar and food service.
Great dinner as always. Wonderful home made tortilla chips and guacamole, delicious fish in mango sauce. Warm vibe, friendly staff. A favorite for dinner with friends.
Decided to try this place at the last minute. It was a weeknight but we decided to request a reservation. Wasn’t necessary! I would think a weekend would be very busy, however. We were greeted graciously and seated right away. Lovely artwork and architectural features. The food was delicious! A little on the pricey side; most entrees were $25+. Comparable pricing for the area. They were very happy to accommodate a gluten free diet with many options.
Always a family favorite. Good food, nice atmosphere & good service.
Meh. The entree chicken was dry, everything else was delicious. But the chicken was dry.
Girls night out, couldn’t have asked for a better spot. The energy was incredible, service was outstanding, friendly staff, atmosphere was perfect and to top it off great food and drinks! Highly recommend!
My husband and I went for his birthday and we were both pleasantly surprised. The service was great, the staff was attentive from the time we walked in to be seated until we left for the evening. The food was great and the waiter was able to tell us about the specials for the night that were not on the menu that we both chose one of the selections he offered that were not on the menu. I informed the waiter it was my husband's birthday and I wanted him to have a shot.
When the waiter brought the shot, he politely gave it to my husband along with a slice of dessert and singing from the staff. We both totally enjoyed our dining experience!
The noise and acoustics made this a fairly unpleasant experience.
