The margaritas are amazing!! The food is really good and perfect to share. We did the taco Tuesday deal which was perfect for a quick dinner since we all had work the next day and didnt want to go nuts. Would definitely be fun to go all out and do the prix fix menu. I'll be back for that

I’ve been to Espita before, a few times. I thought it was okay. Tonight was different. Tonight it was superb. They’ve added a 3 course prix fixe menu, and it works well. The ceviche is excellent - *very* highly recommended. Both the Camarones and the Tamale were delicious entrees. My wife and I had one or the other. The next time we come, we’re flipping. And the churros are different (black?) but very tasty. Love the cocktails based on mescal. Eat outdoors if at all possible. And enjoy. Espita is a delight. Excellent service, too, I might add.

I love this place, and the knowledgeable service staff! Always a nice experience. Also excited to see they've added a prix fixe menu option that I'll definitely be taking advantage of at some point so I can eat that incredible churros dessert again, like on my birthday. Highly recommend.

Went for Sunday brunch. We arrived as they opened and were fortunate to be able to sit on the patio. The music inside the restaurant was way too loud. Our server was great and provided the right mix of attention without being intrusive. We split the guacamole which was excellent. My friend had huevos rancheros which he enjoyed. I had the chicken and waffles which was overpowered by chipotles. The syrup was chipotle, the butter had chipolte and the breading on the chicken had chipolte. It was just too much. Thank goodness our water glasses were never empty.

Had a super great meal during restaurant week, so it was also a good deal. The options for vegetarian/vegan are somewhat limited but what I had was delicious. Only complaint is there wasn’t any sort of protein - they would benefit from adding another veg option with beans or soy chorizo. Otherwise super tasty and the house margarita had a smoky spice on the rim! I would go back.

It has always been one of my favorite paces. But, no longer. The quality has decreased and the menu is tired. The passion seems to have decreased. I hope it finds itself again.

It was pretty good. Our server could have been more attentive. The lamb roast was good but utterly flavorless, whereas the chicken tamale was quite well seasoned. The churros were odd. Not at all what we expected.

Very nice interior and great service. The food however was a real disappointment. The price point for what you actually get was way off. The Carnitas tacos were very good. The lamb and the eggplant tacos were bland and a bit of a let down. Great cocktails were what made the meal and the subsequent bill palatable.

I have excellent hearing but the noise level at brunch on Sunday was completely off the rails. It totally ruined my dining experience. The pounding music only exacerbated the situation. I will not be back.

Fantastic food that manages to be comforting and sophisticated AND beautiful. Astonishing complexity and inventiveness in every bite. Excellent cocktail program, designed by someone who clearly knows agave spirits well. Barbacoa was the star of this meal, though the Tamal was nothing to sneeze at. Beautiful food and drink!

Not a huge selection of entrees but excellent flavor combinations in appetizers and entrees. I live in San Antonio, so I eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants. I would call this one upscale Mexican.

Place is trendy and has a buzz. Service was good though you have to constantly ask for water refill. Overall food quality was interesting not the standard Mexican fare. But portions are small and most are overpriced. FYI example small plate ceviche at $16 was spicy with only a few morsels of seafood. Fish tacos was ok. Chicken tamal (big plate at $19) was more like a taster menu. Disappointing!

I think the noise level was the main problem for me. Quite a bar scene and had to yell to have a conversation over dinner. That distracted me from my food, which was good - just would have been a lot better if we had been able to converse easily.

A friend and I sat at the bar for dinner. The bar tenders are knowledgeable about the drinks, of course, but also about the food. We asked them what to order, and they steered us well. I’m a big fan of this place. Fun atmosphere too.

The tacos we had for Taco Tuesday were delicious and great value at $3 a piece. Get the carnitas taco! Happy hour margaritas at half price were in smaller cups, about half the volume so you get what you pay for. Though they were still good margaritas. Decor is cool, and there are misters outside for those hot and humid days. Definitely recommend!

I requested a table for an anniversary, despite it being a Sunday, and put in a note on the reservation. No reference was made to the anniversary by staff and we were sat in the middle of a busy section when other areas were empty and much quieter. Our table wasnt level, and even after asking the waitress she couldn't get it perfect. Within 10 minutes of arriving we saw another couple get seated in the quiet area and were a bit disappointed. The food itself was delicious, but expensive. An entree with one tamale is hardly an entree, and I think portion sizes could be bigger (thats coming from a 155lb male). All in all, I'd go back for drinks and appetizers, but never for a serious meal.

My wife and I had brunch on the patio. even though it was a VERY hot day the misting system kept the space very comfortable. Our server Michael was very attentive. We don't drink due to dietary constraints, so we could not enjoy the cocktails. The Agua Frescas are wonderful and refreshing. The tacos are the best in the city. Highly recommend. Vegetable and Quinoa bowl as well as the fruit salad are real treats. We will return

This place has just some of the most delicious fresh tortillas and guacamole. It's a bit unfortunate that in 98 degree weather, the hostess decided to seat a very frequent customer and my baby in the very far end of the outdoor seating hallway where we were in direct sunlight and no overhead fans to be seen. I was also joined by my friend with her 6-week old baby, and it suffices to say our waiter was so aware of our seating he kept filling our water glasses. I had made the reservation way ahead in time, and requested a high chair in the special requests line. As I walked in I'm asked if I need a high chair and it was dragged all the way through the restaurant while I was walking behind them, I wish they had read so they could plan in advance seating and my daughter's seat. Great food and server, Mike went above and beyond.

Birthday trip for my 11y/o daughter and our first time to DC. Food was amazing. The fact that she ate and enjoyed a wagyu crudo tostada brings a tear to my eye. Thanks for a memorable meal.

Hi Matt, Thank you for choosing us to celebrate your daughter! The wagyu crudo is one of our favorite dishes, so we also get really excited when children enjoy it. Thank you for such a nice review! Hope to see you on your next visit. Cheers, Josh Phillips
