The main course never arrived! When we reminded our waiter he was apologetic and then comped us the food, but still...!
Great dinner experience at Oyamel! We were celebrating our anniversary and we had a GREAT time! The service was awesome, and everyone was great! I HIGHLY recommend the Chef's Selection!!!
Nice experience. Only issue was the place was very loud
Great food and great service. Very attentive staff. We enjoyed our experience.
Get the oyamel margarita with the salt air and explore the veggie plates even if you're a meatatarian like me. They are worth it!!!
Oyamel is always wonderful. We love going there. We were treating out-of-town relatives from Colorado to a birthday celebration. Oyamel performed perfectly. Our relatives were quite taken with 'back East' Mexican excellence. Thanks, Oyamel.
Amazing food with great atmosphere
Both dishes came to table room temp. I DID NOT let the dishes sit for minutes b4 eating. Tamale w/mole could have been a 5 had it been correct temp. Enchilada verde was very nice after I requested hot food.
What was so annoying is that when I requested from my waiter a hotter food, I was not deemed credible. Another person came to the table & asked what was wrong. I had to “explain”. When I did I was told the plate on bottom was warm, so I was questioned. I asked both of them to taste the dish to see for themselves. I did not appreciate this at all. I was told that due to no microwave, they would have to make a new dish & then waited for me to retract my request. Very insulting. I stupidly left a 20+% tip. Mad at myself. I ate at 3 of Mr. Andres’ restaurants during my visit to DC 3 nites in a row, b/c he is such a wonderful man.
The wait staff is very responsive and also informative. Jonathan was our server and was absolutely the reason I will come back again and again. The food was fabulous as well. The chocolate sauce for the Churros was more syrupy than I would have liked - consider a 'dark thick dark chocolate chili concoction' and all will be perfect!
Chicken soups were cold. Poorly prepared guacamole without zing.
Incredible meal and experience
Food was delicious and our server Dzenana was amazing, knowledgeable and very attentive. Great experience!
Great food, creatively prepared and served. The place is noisy on purpose, creating a very cosmopolitan overall experience.
We were blown away but you come to expect that with Jose
Excellent food and service. Definitely coming back
Great place great food
If you are looking for authentic Mexican food this is the place!
Everything was delicious.
Brussel Sprouts are the best.
Was pleasantly surprised by this place, as I had heard mixed reviews. The Suadero taco and Pescado Baja taco were both delicious! I did notice that happy hour was only served at the bar.
Great for dates, special events, parties and work lunches.
Serviced felt rushed and our waiter did not have a good attitude.
Oyamel is consistently great. Friendly, prompt service with classic Jose Andres food. We used to live around the corner so we've eaten there 50 or so times and we always go back because it's always great. Outstanding ceviche, the best guacamole in town and Andres' unique take on Mexican cuisine.
The food and service were outstanding. Our waiter really helped in our food choices, and all of the dishes were outstanding.
The food was cold and meh. Not worth the money and a lot of the options just aren’t good and you’ll still leave hungry.
Food was okay but the noise level was too loud! We were there on a Saturday night and were not able to hold a conversation.
Always great. Outstanding food, drinks and service. Highly recommended
It was food from heaven. Really wonderful.
Excellent in every way! (Except very loud). Waiter was very helpful. Service was quite quick in spite of busy night. Great experience.
Delicious food and drinks. Service was excellent and outside seating comfortable.
CHILES EN NOGADA fantastic!!
Everything was really good.
Will be nice to know ahead the special menu.
Delicious food and incredible margaritas. Love the atmosphere and great customer service.
Every single dish was very oily and lacked flavor. Disappointing visit. Been here so many times and now reluctant to go back.
Quite loud and close, but fantastic food and service!
We had a great experience. Food (aside from the quest fundito) was amazing. 3 different tacos, pork belly quesadilla, papas y molè, stuffed poblano. 4 different cocktails, salt air margarita was by far the best drink of the evening. The place was VERY loud but a fun atmosphere. Our server (pregnant) was amazing. Service was great, awesome experience.
Oyamel never disappoints. I was there with a friend who had never been before. We had the guac (we ordered it medium but it came out hot and they immediately replaced it - the service there is superb), the tuna ceviche, chicken mole, brussell sprouts, and sweet corn. All delish. My friend loved the pomegranate margarita and I had a very nice Spanish rose. Fab eve!
This is the closest I can get for authentic Mexican food without going to the underworld...
