Worst Mexican ever. The service was bad. The food was cold and under-spiced. The drinks were weak. I will never go back, nor would I ever recommend it.

I've only been here for lunch--it's around the corner from my office. It's been great every time. The food is delicious, the staff very friendly and the space is really comfortable.

I have so many positive things to say about Tequilas. The margartas are made from scratch as you order them, customized guac at their guac bar, beautiful restaurant, etc. The food was fantastic.

Tequila's is a beautiful restaurant. The service is excellent. They make a mean margarita. The food is high end and delicious. It's worth it to go just for drinks or for the full meal deal - it's a bit pricey.

...and I eat out a lot. Tequila's has THE BEST Mexican food around. The atmosphere is sexy - great for a date. The bar is beautiful, the drinks are impeccably made, and the food is out of this world. I have never been disappointed with any dish at Tequila's. I took my boyfriend for his birthday, and the staff sang him a song and gave him a free dessert and tequila shot, even though I said we couldn't possibly eat any more! The staff is so friendly and accommodating. Be sure to get there on the early side on a weekend unless you want a loooong wait (they don't take weekend reservations). On week nights, you don't need a reservation. The bar opens at 3 pm for happy hour - enjoy half price appetizers!

Imagine two fish patties with guacamole sauce in between. The ones you get at Burger King. That was the grouper "fish of the day" platter. It came in five minutes which probably means it was waiting in the microwave. On top of that
