It's pretty chilly in the Resturant. During the winter you have to wear a jacket. Foods pretty good but and drinks are okay as well. Overall average.

We went here for the first night of my bachelorette party before going out for drinks and dancing at the Bell in Hand. I highly recommend this restaurant as a pre-night out dinner place for anyone going out in the Fanueil Hall/financial district area.

We arrived on time for our reservation but our other guests were delayed almost an hour as a result of a mechanical issue on their whale watching trip. There was no obvious host or manager to speak to but we finally found someone, explained the situation and they were very accommodating so we sat at our table for some chips and salsa and drinks until our family arrived. I have heard that besides ice, menus can be the biggest source of bacteria in a restaurant and these menus were so dirty the pages stuck together. They were grimy and in need of replacement or a good cleaning. Food is typical Tex -Mex. I had Baja Fish Tacos and they were very tasty. Overall not a bad experience but nothing very special.

The food and atmosphere was very nice, our waiter checked in several times, however I felt like she was rushing us to leave. The last time she came to check in and asked if we wanted anything else and we said no she brought our check and we were just having a conversation after all it was St. Patrick's Day.

I enjoyed this restaurant, great margarita selection and pretty good prices. The service was quick and the waiter came back often to check on our table. The food was tasty and was definitely within a good price range. I would most definitely go back again.

We had a party of 7 for dinner to celebrate a teenage girl's birthday. What a great find right in fanueil hall ! The food was good, quantity great and service spectacular! A really fun and cozy atmosphere. Would recommend a bit more seasoning on the food otherwise all was great and we will be back, thank you!

Handy spot for a business lunch because of its central location. Very friendly service and casual atmosphere. The food is nothing extraordinary but it is good, reliable and tasty. Fair prices. A good choice in Fanueil Hall market.

I took my son and nine of his friends here for dinner after the Pax show. Our waiter did an amazing job dealing with a table of teenagers. The restaurant did not include the gratuity on the bill, but the service was so good, that I gave our waiter a 25% tip. Food came out quickly and was a great value for the money. Conveniently located near faneuil hall.

This restaurant was recommending by a co-worker and we went. Was not impressed and would not go back. The rice was just a plain white rice, black beans were from a can and my chicken taco was okay. Nothing to rave about. I was very disappointed.

My fiance and I come here a few times. It's great for $20 margarita pitchers (or $28 skinny margarita pitcher). I enjoyed the steak quesadilla and she got thespinach, tomato, and goat cheese quesadilla. We have also enjoyed the tacos and the fajitas in the past. Always have enjoyed our meals and the service.

We had a good time, the only weird thing was they refused to seat us till the whole party arrived, we wanted to order drinks and apps, because we knew a couple people would be 15 minutes, but they wouldn't sit us. It's good food at a fair price with good margs

Four of us dined here. The menu is extensive -- perhaps more than the kitchen can realistically handle. We all agreed that the food was average, nothing special, and the sides were not worth eating. Some parts of the order arrived incorrect -- salt on a margarita that had requested none, for instance.

Although we had a reservation, the host seemed to be confused, and kept asking us how many in our party. On the plus side, we were still seated fairly promptly.

The restaurant is very noisy. Since we were out to talk with our friends, that was unfortunate.

Boston's Tex-Mex scene is poor, so it's hard to find decent places to go especially in the touristy environment of Faneuil hall. However, it is possible to find better alternatives than Zuma with a bit of online research.

Zuma is one of my favorite restaurants in the North End area. We live in the North End and frequent Zuma often. The food and service are always fantastic plus the price is reasonable for such an area. Cody the manager is very friendly. Food is always fresh and well prepared. Servers are courteous and thoughtful.
