Was in Philadelphia for a conference, Lolita was recommended by the concierge st Lowes hotel, so glad we took his advice. Our table if 5 ordered the spicy tuna guacamole and onion guacamole with tortillas and plantains, excellent choices. Nice selection of ales and drinks. Main course was the steak taquitos with a very unique salsa with fruit, onions, peppers... More

The al pastor was good we got a pitcher of margarita and that was good too and plantains as an app. All was good I recommend trying this place out. Also service was good I would make a reservation for sure it was busy even on a weeknight.

Definitely recommend reservations unless you like sitting at the bar or chef's table. We sat at the chef's table and enjoyed seeing the cooking staff work together. The flavors are well matched and unique. Well worth the trip.

We ordered the guacamole and received a nice sampling salsa along with chips and a few plantains which was very good. I ordered the chicken taco which was good... More

Good flavors here! We ordered the Maui fish tacos , raw tuna tostada, guacamole and for dessert, coconut tres Leche. All the flavors were deliscious for everything we ate! The only thing I could say is that I would've liked the tuna tostada and the mahi tacos to have been slightly less salty (I believe it was front the chipotle... More
