This place was one of my favorites in New Haven & I talk about it to everyone.

However, last night we had a reservation and were told to stand outside in the cold for 15 minutes waiting for our table to be ready. While unpleasant, it was understandable if people were still sitting at the table we were reserved to occupy.

Fast forward the drinks were good. The food was good EXCEPT for the shrimp fajita tacos which had zero seasoning on it and did not have any flavor... They were clearly short staffed so we were patient and waited to get our food, drinks, order taken, etc… Had to ask: 2 times for plates for our appetizers, 2 different people for napkins which we finally got about 40 minutes into the meal (after we were done w the appetizers), 3 times for silverware which I finally had to get up and go ask for it at the bar and was given a single knife and fork for a table of 9.

We ended up ordering 2 more pitchers before we put the dinner order in. Had to wait a long time to get it- which honestly wasn’t a problem UNTIL they started to kick us out. We were told to wrap up when we still had about 3/4 of each pitcher left. We tried to rush but there is only so much that we can physically do. As we were trying to get up and put our coats on, an older man came over and started cleaning and aggressively saying we had to go. As we were trying to finish our drinks, we stepped aside towards the bar and away from them table, so they could finish cleaning and seat their next table. He then came over and YELLED at us. Instead of just telling us we couldn’t stand there, he chose to be nasty.

My takeaway - if you know that we have a time limit- don’t happily take our $50-60 / pitcher if you know you are going to kick us out before we can finish it- especially if you know you're going to make guests wait ~25min for the pitcher. If we would have gotten them in a timely manner, we could have gotten out in time. Additionally, do not scream at guests. Will not return.

I had a reservation done days prior and when we arrived there was a huge line outside. When I asked what was going on they said they had a private party and that they had blocked reservation for that day. The place was very busy, but the worse part was how rude the person on the front was when I asked her about our reservation and I showed her that I had one made many days before. Anyways at the end we left, and they didn’t even apologized for the “confusion” with the reservation. Very very rude people.

Queso was cold and the chorizo lacked substance and flavor. The tacos were actually cold and the beer was warm. Very disappointing.

The booking was for our anniversary dinner. We both are fans of tequila and tacos, so what place is more fitting than Te Amo Tequila Bar & Tacos? We were seated immediately at a high top. The ambiance was lively, as it was a Thursday night. We both ordered margarita flyers and the avocado trio. The quality of the drinks and food was great. The pork belly was tiny and crunchy, meatier chunks that weren’t fried to a crisp would have made it a little better. We also had the plantain taco set with mushrooms and the lobster quesadilla. The plantains were the best vegetarian tacos I have ever had. They were spicy and soft, with the perfect condiments. Honestly, I would come back just for these and to try their Elotes. Overall, it was a lot of fun, the music was great, food was amazing, drinks were awesome (if you need only one, go with the frozen margarita), and the service was perfection. Our server did not miss a beat, she was attentive at just the right amount. One recommendation I have for the restaurant is to add real flowers in a small shot glass or vase to the tables, it would dress them up a bit and go with the Frida mural behind the bar. Thanks for a fun night, Te Amo!

They seemed to be short staff which is very common in these times. The manager stepped in to assist however, he was very rude. Though I can understand being flustered in a somewhat busy environment. I do no feel as though it is ok for managers to be rude with customers.

Overall a good first time experience. Eddie the manager was professional and helpful with a birthday gathering we were having. The waitress was good, but she wasn’t busy & we didn’t see her much or catch her name. The food was excellent. I would like to return to try different margaritas. The noise level was high and hard to hear conversation across the table. An interesting establishment that draws a young energetic crowd who are there to drink tequila!

No air condition inside the restaurant. Made sitting there unbearable. They tried to put out fans but did not have enough to hit the different tables. It felt like a hear box. Ruined entire experience even though the food and drinks were very good.

Great ambiance if you are into high energy spaces but service was terrible; waitress outside of ordering, checked on us once in 2 hours.

Also clearly no interest in covid protocols in terms of social distancing inside, tables on the left are maybe a foot apart, if that. It was very uncomfortable being close enough to be “involved” in conversations with tables to the left and right.

Wait staff did the best they could with the crowd. So really no complaints.

This is truly a bar that serves some passable food. Not a restaurant that also serves drinks and depends on the quality of food.

Not my cup of tea.

I understand there’s a 90 minute limit, however some of the food we ordered wasn’t as good as previously. The tacos were a bit stale. We felt a bit rushed when looking at menu due to 90 minute limit.

Overall the experience was enjoyable. We sat outside, which was enjoyable, but could have been better without the various delivery drivers pulling up, some idling, on the street right next to us.
