Everything was good except that there were no frozen drinks. Waitress said that they don't have a blender. Suggestion buy one.

Service was really slow. The food was just OK. No table side guacamole and the drinks were just OK.

We have been here many times and this visit was not great. Soup served cold with no spoons. Bean dip was not the same. Bland.

Overall food was decent—service needed improvement. Drinks did not arrive until after our appetizers and entrees were served. We had even mentioned to the runner that we were still waiting for our drinks but she didn’t communicate that to anyone. Also had to ask for water refills twice.

A really nice spot for upscale Mexican, without ridiculous prices. My Margarita was a bit more ice than drink but tasted great. Our food was delicious and the presentation was very nice. Our waitperson was lovely. Go after 7:00 if you don't want to sit with 200 children. A great family place. My only negative comment would be that the restaurant would be so nice WITHOUT televisions everywhere. Can we get away from the 'sports bar' mentality for 1 meal?

We were here over a year ago, and at that time had excellent food and service. Unfortunately, things were not the same this time. It took forever to get a waitperson and even water.Seems they were understaffed. Then after eventually ordering the food was much less tasty and interesting than last year. Not sure what happened.

This place was disappointing as far as the food goes. This is not authentic Mexican cusine ,Typical American version of Mexican food. In addition ,the Margarita had an odd taste,we did not order the cheap version.
Ambience was fine and our server was very attentive.

We changed the reservation earlier that day from 4 to 8. The table behind the hostess station is not my favorite spot to be, but apparently, that is where large parties fit. There were 2 of us with allergies, and the staff, including people from the kitchen, could not have been more accommodating! There were several checks and balances from them several times, to make sure the guests would not have an allergic reaction! I have not seen a restaurant as attentive as that before, although I’m not one of those with an allergy. The food was very good and could not have been better! We sat for a long time after dinner and dessert, and were not made to feel we needed to give up our table. It was a lovely evening all around!

This was my second visit to Temazcal Tequila Cantina in Framingham. The first visit was right after it opened. The service was poor...mainly a bad attitude from our waitress. The food was good..not great. My second visit this past week was not much of an improvement. After making a reservation through Open Table well in advance we were greeted by a not so nice hostess who told us we couldn't get a regular table and only be seated in the bar at a high-top, but after complaining she sat us at one of the many open regular tables..not a good start. Our waitress however was excellent this time. I ordered the Verde Enchiladas which came out burnt. I noticed the manager running around making sure the customers were taken care of but he never stopped at our table. Not a very happy return engagement for me.

Food was fantastic and very substantial portions. Wait staff very friendly. Only disappointment was that our meal felt rushed. Our main course came out while we were still working on out appetizer, and our drinks didn’t make it out until after our main course arrived, so didn’t really have a chance to enjoy them.

Mediocre food. Waitor spilled salsa, splashed on us, our clothes and table. No one apologized. Understandably accidents happen. But NO apology is unacceptable. Waitor never came over to us and the hostess asked us if we were waited on yet
I’ve been to the seaport restaurant and it’s been great. I won’t return to Framingham

This is our second dinner at Temazcal. Another great experience! The food is delicious, the menu is varied, the service is friendly and efficient, and the ambiance is lively and warm. I would highly recommend Temazcal—-from the chips and salsa at the start, to the tasty desserts at the end!!
