Cocktail was not for me. Chicken enchiladas and fish tacos were amazing
Went with rends for brunch and really enjoyed the food and service.
The food was delicious and the service was great.
I’m still thinking about the Cauliflower and grilled Trout.
First date night back at Oyamel in 18 months and it did not disappoint. Amazingly flavorful food, friendly and attentive staff, and a vibrant space made the evening special. Sincere thank you to Chef Andres and the Oyamel team. See you again soon!
Our server was impatient and rude! Food was average, big disappointment
Overall okay experience. Plates were a good portion, I wouldn’t call it anything crazy special.
Th food was very tasty and the service was amazingly attentive, friendly and accurate. Oyamel is very consistent in there top class delivery of amazing food. Only draw backs was the patio was slanted slightly and the DC streets were load with cars. Both nothing the restaurant can control and nothing that ruined the experience. We love Oyamel and highly suggest it for all types of diners.
I went with a larger group for my birthday. Service, atmosphere and food were all excellent. Awesome pomegranate margaritas!
Great food and service as always. My midwest cousins loved the food and ambiance
Delicious! And the service was great
Excellent option for good food... small portions, but the taste makes up for the size. Creative drinks... definitely recommend.
Good food and cocktails. Service was adequate but not great.
Don’t believe the hype. Waitress wasn’t interested in doing her job waste of time and money. Food isn’t even good. Update your menu
Great customer service
Oyamel is a place we really like to go, great food and service! recommend 100%
Had a nice meal outside under the tent. Great service and a good meal.
Excellent food and customer service! Will be returning for more!
Excellent food and fantastic service! Jan made this a wonderful experience!
Oyamel is great - excellent service and great variety of foods and drinks! Everything seems fresh and is tasty! The chips and guacamole didn't seem as freshly made this time, but I'm sure it was an aberration, so not a huge deal.
Oyamel never fails! I took some friends from out of town here and they loved it. One of the best restaurants in DC!
The service was amazing
Best service I’ve had in years. Professional and great personality
Our food was well seasoned. I really liked my pomegranate margarita with salt foam. My only complaint is with the rice, as it was undercooked.
Visiting daughter who lives in DC
Wonderful food and service!
We had a party of 4 and each tried multiple dishes, per the server's recommendation. All but 2 of the dishes were either subpar or just unpleasant. The 2 others were okay at best. We were excited about several of the menu options when ordering but they all fell flat. A few were just weird. Brussel sprouts were underdone with an odd initial taste and an even worse aftertaste. Corn truffle quesadilla was just strange and off-putting. Chicken tacos were dry. Shredded beef tacos reminded me of sloppy joes. Fish tacos were meh. Chicken quesadilla for a kid was okay, but not on the menu (they don't have an official kids menu). Tamal verde was nothing special and something I could get elsewhere at half the cost and it would be better. Chips were very thick and hard. Salsa was too spicy and flavor was different than any salsa I've had before, but not in a good way. Server was attentive and professional and manager was nice. The food just wasn't good, and we eat a lot of Mexican food. The restaurant appeared to be divided into a front and back section, with different decor in both. The rear area looked for intimate and formal. The front seemed more casual and chaotic. We were in the front and, from what I saw, I think I recommend asking to be seated in the back if you go. I never leave restaurant reviews and generally give places the benefit of the doubt, but we left paying over $115 (pre-tip) and had several bad dishes. It just wasn't for us. We wouldn't go back, despite the good service.
Wonderful food as usual. Ceviche verde is a favorite. Arrachera was very flavorful and complex if not slightly overcooked. Camerones Mojo is a must have!! Truly a lovely dish.
Overall, great drinks and wonderful service.
As an aside:
I do not recommend sitting outside during a rain storm. It isn't Oyamel's fault but by the end of the meal we were sitting in a torrent along the curb and were sprayed by a couple of cars passing by. The tent held up well and we were mostly dry until the gutters started flowing.
Again, no fault of Oyamel's at all.
Pleasant experience overall and we'll be back...although maybe next time if it's threatening rain, we'll stay inside.
Wonderful server and food!
Hands down, some of the best tacos and margaritas in the DMV!!!
The actual food and presentation is wonderful. Very well priced and absolutely wonderful taste. Felt the service didn't quite keep up with the quality of the food but it was quite a hectic day for the staff so it was probably a little busier than normal. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again.
Great food! Love the churros. Also the chillaques are excellent.
It was an ok experience. The food was alright, especially for the price. Don’t think we’ll come back.
Always delicious food😀
Amazing guacamole- tapas style options. We had enchiladas, fish tacos and pork belly quesadilla…YUM! Also great service!
Amazing!! We were visiting and went there twice. Great chips and salsa. We had the chicken tacos both times and they were fantastic.
We dined outdoors and enjoyed the time at Oyamel. As always, excellent service.
Guacamole is great. Drinks awesome. Miss paella.
Amazing! Try the salty air margaritas! So unique and tasty, everything was wonderful
Innovative and tasty food, beautifully presented. Busy and packed, so service can be a bit slow at peak hours
We went for Father’s Day and chose outdoor dining option. The ambiance was subpar but the food and service was good. They can easily improve the ambiance by adding better looking furniture or just some decent table cloth!
