The food was great but we were there Sunday night and it was extremely slow. Took us an hour to get our food and took me 25 min to get my drink ...

We thought it was going to be more lively. Food was good and drinks were good but not the music.

OMG!!! What can I say. It was AMAZING!! The decorations are out of this world. We had reservations but they were running behind so they offered us to sit at the bar while we wait. We sat at the bar and ended us just staying there as we were having such a great time. The food was the best I've had in a long time. Super fresh and the bartender... amazing and great to talk to. GO!! TRY THEM!! You will not be sorry.

The staff always makes you feel welcome. The food quality is above average for sure.
Drink prices are borderline outrageous though.

As always, the food was tasty and the service was attentive. They’ve made the best of the COVIS situation while still providing a great dining experience. The roasted chicken is every minute worth the 20 to 25 minute cooking time.

This has become my go-to restaurant of choice during the past year. The food is excellent -- especially the several ahi tuna dishes, cocktails are great, and the service is always terrific. I love that you can order a main or splurge on several small plates for a fun variety and experience.

My group loved everything about our experience! We dine together frequently and this was by far one of our top experiences, from the moment we stepped through the door we treated as we were the only table in the restaurant. Above the top accommodating, and the food and drinks were phenomenal!
We can’t wait to go back!

Extremely small portion size of octopus appetizer at a high price and overdressed with vinegar. Food was mediocre at best. Rice and beans were flavorless. First time we ever experienced plain white rice when ordering rice and beans. Seemed like they opened a can of black beans and poured them out. Frozen corn was used for the Mexican street corn. Upcharged for substituting Woodford Bourbon in old fashioned and a lime used instead of orange peel.

This was a girls night dinner with my mother and sister and what an experience. I love the diverse options and the price range was not bad at all. Indoor and outdoor seating available. The owners, managers, staff overall were completely amazing! So warm and welcoming. There was more than 6ft separation from others and their tables. The decor in the dining area and even the bathroom were beautiful! I cannot wait to go back. The drinks and food were amazing and we barely had to wait! It truly was a beautiful space and a great experience. 10 starts!!!

Our first time to Tequila Escape....our server was excellent as were the drinks but some or our food was just mediocre. We had a few things arrive luke warm (calamari) and some were overcooked (steak skewers)....We would go back and try again on maybe a less busy night. Overall, we did enjoy ourselves!

After waiting outside in a disorganized hostess line for 5-10 minutes, we were sat at our reserved table and had water poured. Roughly 20 minutes later someone that looked like a manager asked us if we had been helped yet, I said no. He took our drink order and food order. About a minute after this the normal server came by and asked us if we had just sat down or something. I said no we've been here for 20 minutes. Staff seemed very out of sync with each other. Our 2 appetizers never came out. When our entrees arrived I explained the appetizers never came out and the waiter said he could bring them out ASAP and they would be on him. He ended up comping 1 of the 2 late appetizers. Food was very far from anything special nor anything close to authentic Mexican food. Very overpriced. Great tequila selection though. Will definitely not return.

Usually love it here but my last dining experience was pretty bad. My dining partner and I were not socially distanced from the other table (we sat indoors so this was important to me). It was maybe 3 feet instead of the recommended 6. We were also seated right next to the bathroom... I don’t think tables should be placed right outside the restrooms..

Food and drink was great as usual. Service was very poor. The chips and guac we ordered were accidentally given to the other table next to us. The waiter didn’t notice until at least 20 min had passed. I thought maybe he would comp the bill for that but he didn’t. Also took a really long time to order dessert and get check.

Outdoor dining with social distancing and heaters. Good and service were impeccable. Shared a number of inventive small plates, definitely a fusion vibe. Margarita menu was impressive. I’ll be back!!!
