A group of girlfriends and I went to El Vez to celebrate a few different important moments. We ordered delicious cocktails, appetizers, and main meals. Everything came out perfectly done, exactly how we ordered it. The food was delicious and we all very much enjoyed ourselves. We had a FANTASTIC server named Dave! He was knowledgeable about the menu and specials, he had great recommendations, and he made our celebrations extra special! At the end of our meal we found out he was actually training under another server named Ant. She was very friendly and sweet! She told us I was only his fourth day at the restaurant. We were shocked because he was just so amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to El Vez and our server Dave. 10/10 would recommend to anyone! We will certainly be back.
Excellent food as always. Wait staff is very kind and accommodating.
Great service and great food. Outdoor seating is a plus. We were seated right at our reservation time.
We had a fabulous evening out in the City at El Vez. We have not been there since before the pandemic. It did not disappoint. I wish I had the server's name because he was excellent! His service and recommendations were spot-on. The mojitos recommended were the BEST!
A favorite every time we visit Philadelphia. So happy to be back. Great service and food, as always.
Love this place.
Delectable food as always. Outside seating was a little rough on the broken-up asphalt street, but that’s Philly for y’a!
The sea bass tacos were unreal 🤤🤤
Despite making a reservation in advance, we were forced to sit outside. The table was unsteady and the chair I sat on was broken. Very disappointing.
The food is fresh and and the service was excellent as always. The Cassimigos Caramel Cocoa shooter was excellent.I love Elvez
I love El Vez, the food and drinks are great and the service was wonderful! However the outdoor seats were incredibly uncomfortable and did not feel stable. Please invest in some supportive and comfortable outdoor chairs that fit all bodies. It'll make for a much more pleasant dining experience. Thank you so much!
Mother’s Day dinner was great!
Fantastic food, drinks, service and ambiance!!
Everything was amazing, service was great & the ambiance was amazing! We had a great Mother’s Day dinner.
El vez never disappoints. One of our favorites. Food was excellent & service was Gr8
Terrific service & awesome shrimp enchiladas & margaritas.
Our dinner was great! the nachos, guac, and tacos were outstanding and we loved our margs as well
We enjoyed our experience at El Vez. That food was delicious. The drinks were great! We dined indoors and it was pretty loud. Also with there being a time limit due to COVID restrictions, we felt the service could have been a bit better. It took a while to get our waiters attention to get refills on drinks and such.
Food was awesome, service was awesome. Felt no pressure to leave right away like some other restaurants I have eaten at during covid
Amazing experience! Our server, Max, was sweet and very knowledgeable about the menu. We took his recommendations and were not disappointed. Great depth of flavor in our food, especially the tuna tostadas and the mahi tacos. Perfect margaritas, too - you can tell it’s fresh lime juice. I’ll definitely be back.
Was cinco de Mayo. I flew in from Chicago for work and brought the wife. We’ve dined here before and decided to come back for the nacyo mama’s and the taco dinner for two
The food is delicious ,service snd the staff is wonderful.
Staff was super friendly as always and food was amazing.
GREAT!!!! My first time there and I will be back! The service, food and atmosphere was everything!
Due to Covid, menu is limited. Prefer prior menu.
Best margaritas in the city and awesome nachos.
No issues. Great time. Server did a great job
We had a little hiccup with our order but nothing serious! Our server was super attentive and even gave us complimentary churros for the hiccup. Second time there and we will be coming back again and again. Everyone is so pleasant and the restaurant is always amazing.
El Vez is an absolute must for me whenever I am in Philadelphia! The blood orange margarita, Nacho Mamma, and guacamole are my go-to every time. Whether sitting inside at their awesome circular bar or outside and enjoying the sights and sounds of Philly, it's absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in Philly.
Lovely experience. Great service, knowledgeable about the menu and provided solid recommendations. I will definitely be returning
Great food and drinks! Very spaced out so it felt safe with current covid restrictions.
Everything was great except for our waiter. From start to finish. We asked for straws after he brought our water and appetizer and it took him 20 minutes. While we watched him just casually stroll around the restaurant. I asked for a refill of my coke and he had the audacity to take my glass with the straw in it.. go behind some wall to re-fill and then brought it back 7 minutes later.. I did jot drink it because she should have just brought me a new glass or giving me a new straw. His overall Service left a bad taste in our mouths! But I will be back for the food.
The food was fantastic and our waitress was great! Would recommend El Vez to anyone who asked for a good Mexican place in Philly.
It was very hot and humid inside restaurant; the air conditioner was broken
Outside dining was perfect! This restaurant is a summer/anytime favorite for me! I tried something different today on the menu, crispy mai mai tacos - amazing!!!!! Frozen blood orange margarita, perfect!! Always will be a fave place of mine! Crab guacamole amazing!!!!!! We had to get a second!
Great food and atmosphere. Love the nachos, margaritas and shrimp tacos.
Randall was a fantastic server, as always. We are so grateful for his service
Great food great service. Amazing host and waitress, don’t know why I’ve not been here sooner.
Everything was great, server gave good recommendations and the drinks were fantastic as usual
