Food is always great, but you are paying Stephen Star prices for Mexican food. Should guacamole really cost more then an entree?
Always good but today was the best ever
Service was great! I went with my 10 month old son and felt safe. Food was delicious.
The food came out hot and delicious! So nice to see the restaurant filled to 50%! Staff was pleasant and happy!
My mom and I went to enjoy a wonderful meal at this restaurant. It is one of our favorites. The drinks and food never seem to disappoint. Only two complaints that I would have with this visit was we ordered a pink Cadillac picture and right away once it was brought to the table I knew just by looking at it that it was not the correct one. We had asked the waitress to confirm if she ordered the correct one which she had but the bartenders had me the incorrect drink. The server and manager was nice enough to take it back get us the correct one but keep the margaritas that had been poured into our cups already. Only issue I had with this visit was they put us in a table very close to the door where servers are constantly going in and out to serve outdoor diners. I had my baby with me that day and so it was pretty chilly with the wind constantly blowing our way. Wish they would have seen that so they could move us to a different table or even the booth behind us. But other than that it’s always a great time going there to enjoy a meal.
Food was great! Our server was great ! Felt safe in light of Covid
Food was delicious and views are perfect!! Great place to eat!
We ate outside in one of the heated huts and had a great time. It was a cold day but we were comfortable...all things considered. We really appreciate the outdoor dining options the Starr Restaurants are offering during the pandemic.
Drinks and food very good. Love the booth we were sitting at.
Fantastic outdoor seating and staff very nice!
El Vez is always the perfect place for atmosphere and great food and drinks.
We sat outside in their heated space and was quite comfortable. Food was great as always; a little salty, but overall pretty tasty. Server was great too. Bathroom was horrendously disgusting, which made me call into question the cleanliness of the kitchen. But since I was already done eating... didn’t really matter I guess. Might try a different place next time because of that.
My wife and I dined at El Vez on Valentine's Day. We requested to be seated outside in one of their chalets, due to COVID-19. We were accommodated on our request and seated on-time. The service was very good - although the restaurant had a 75 minute limit on dining, we did not feel rushed. The chalets were heated and very comfortable for dining without a coat despite outside temperatures in the 30's. Being frequent travelers to Mexico, we felt the food was surprisingly authentic, the portions were sufficient and the presentation was typical of any Starr restaurant. Prices were reasonable and service was very friendly and attentive, but not constantly in your face. Would definitely recommend to others and plan on returning when COVID restrictions relax further.
Even though we were scheduled to sit outside, they were able to get us a table inside (it was FREEZING OUT). Our waitress was awesome. Great about checking on us, making suggestions about the menu, and sharing specials with us. Everything was delicious.
Perfect afternoon! Staff is so amazing. So glad to be inside again!
Going away dinner
Food honestly wasn’t that good, wasn’t authentic at all or anywhere close to that. Definitely overpriced for the quality probably won’t come back
Great dinner, everyone in our party enjoyed the Margaritas, tacos and dessert.
Service was phenomenal! Also, I appreciated their staff thoroughly following COVID-19 precautions. We felt as safe as we could eating outdoors in a protected environment. The food was delicious and came out so quickly.
The food was mediocre and the drinks were so strong that they were barely drinkable. We were unfortunately sat by the door so we sat with winter coats on. The server was friendly so that was the only positive from our dining experience.
Food and ambience was amazing, however the prices were high for the appetizers and sides. Would still go back just good to remember the prices, when I do.
Before Pandemic this was our favorite Mexican restaurant and conveniently 2 block from our residence. Waited patiently for the reopening. Took friends there Sunday and WOW were we all disappointed. Value is non existent. $16 for two small cigar shaped wrapped tacos. Covered 1/4 of the plate with nothing else. I had seafood enchiladas and the shrimp was so strong with ammonia taste and odor was disgusting. Our wait person never checked back on how our food tasted and if we were satisfied so I picked out some of the better parts and called it. Draft beer was cold but a very small pour. We all know that Mexican food is a low cost food product so obviously they are REALLY very busy catching up for missed time .... We'll certainly not be helping them with the recovery process. That is not how you satisfy guests and consequently dig yourself out of the Pandemic hole. Especially when it WAS so good prior to shut down. What a shame.
Had an amazing birthday dinner with my friends at El Vez. The service was wonderful and the outdoor seating was warm and private. I was nervous about sitting outside at first, but the private booths they created were toasty and fun. I wish they would keep them year round!
The booths were great nice and warm. Everyone loved their meal
Incredible overall experience!! Would recommend to any and all
The best nachos and margaritas it the city!
Never disappointed at el vez. I love the different varieties of guacamole that you can choose from.
Always a great time and wonderful margaritas and quac! Love the bathroom vibe too lol but miss the photo booth
Great service, AWESOME food
Food was delicious, and service was excellent! We were sitting outside and our server made sure we had enough heat and that we were comfortable. Very much appreciated !
They adhered to covid-19 restrictions. My friends and I had a great time.
Great outdoor seating area with two heat sources make this an ideal location for an outdoor safe environment, plus the food is great.
Sat in one of the outside boxes when it was around 30 degrees, with the heaters they provide, it was perfectly warm. The food and drinks were amazing and our server was fantastic! Definitely recommend it as an outdoor spot if you prefer that over indoor right now.
Everything was amazing! The service was impeccable and the food/drinks were outstanding. They did have a 90 min time limit because of the pandemic .. or else we would have been there all night! Our server was absolutely amazing. Will definitely be back!!
It was too cold outside, we really couldn’t really enjoy our food and drinks. The heater were no help. The chairs were Metal and it was worst, our behinds were frozen.
Despite the outdoor dining requirements in Philadelphia, the space was quaint and safe and all that anyone would need to enjoy a good meal.
It was freezing out but the waitress helped with extra heater and the meal was so delicious it warmed me up...or it could have been the pitcher of drinks 😎
Amazing food. One of my fave Philly spots
service was super fast,food was excellent; the bartender made really great drinks. love to go back soon!
