We sat near the bar ~ the table beside us was obnoxious. Very loud and our waitress had to maneuver around them with our food because one of the guests was standing and would not move. Had I known that they had been drinking before I sat down I would have asked to move

Temazcal is a cut above the MomandPop Mexican restaurants. Tequila and mezcal are featured. The food was well prepared and served. The noise was note an issue when we were there before 6PM.

The food and our waiter were great on our recent visit to Temazcal, but the hosting staff was inept. We arrived a bit early and were told we had to wait until our reservation. But when it was our reservation time, they had miscalculated room seating and we ended up having to waiting longer than our reserved time. Yet, they sat other tables while we waited. When we finally got our table it was next to the bathroom doors and wait stand (can’t figure out why they won’t tint the glass barrier from the table view to the wait-stand so guests don’t have to look at monitors, waiters, and glassware and pitchers). We then waited 15 minute for chips and drinks. Ugh. Thankfully our waiter was great and the food delicious.

There were four of us at a high top in the bar area. Glad we made a reservation. We had margaritas and chicken nachos. Both were very good. The nachos weren't enormous but the quality, and amount of toppings was very generous.
Our server, Stephanie, was excellent.
It was very loud. Almost too much. We couldn't hear each other or our server.
Would go again but maybe at an off peak time just for the noise level.

Really good food and really good service! Food was a bit spicy, but it was mainly my fault for not noticing that the dish contained jalapeños! Other than that, very delicious (:

Great experience from start to finish. Host and manager had great customer service, even giving out free roses to give to your date. Food was perfect and waiter was extremely nice and attentive. Love coming here!

Although I really enjoyed the meal I was slightly disappointed by two things. One: My wife and I ordered the lobster app and it tasted great but there were 3 very small pieces. For the price, I wouldn't order it again because the value just wasn't there. Two: I ordered the filet special and it was tough. Filet's should be like butter in your mouth. It seemed more like a very tenter sirloin. If I'm paying for a filet I shouldn't think it's a sirloin. I was confused. Overall it was a great evening with great food and would recommend your restaurant to friends. Lastly, I noticed two GM's standing around like they were at a awake. Not at all engaged with the clientele. I was wondering who they were and what their job was. When I was told they were the GM's I was shocked to be honest. They need to walk around and talk with the clientele without being too intruding. Maybe some executive train is in order.

I come to temazcal every week with friends family and my husband/ I love it when the manager Gil is there. Just everything runs different even the music. He always comes to the table to ask if everything is going good. Love 😍 this place. Going there tomorrow 😀

Great staff, great food, great service. Menu offers a wide variety of choices. Chips and salsa are the best around. If you have room for desert, you'll be amazed, as well.
Always a good time and a great meal!

Usually, this is one of my favorite restaurants, but I feel that tonight was an off night for them. The waitress only came to our table a couple of times, and the margaritas, which are usually very flavorful and brightly colored, were definitely diluted and watered down. Left feeling a bit disappointed.

Went on NYE and was there early. Food was not great. Drinks were good and their Queso with chorizo is a favorite. Entrees were less than stellar.

The service was very slow. Our server had to be reminded to get the drinks a couple times. He was seen sitting in a back room talking while the beverages were sitting on the bar

Ordered the mix fajitas and the Fresca cocktail, both were excellent. The only thing better than the food was the service. Very attentive, helpful, and polite. Wish we had room for dessert, as the menu looked excellent.

I have been here before and loved it, but this time we decided to go for our anniversary. The drinks and food were very bland. Manager checked on us twice, which was kind. Server was good. Would not head back anytime soon, unfortunately.

The food tasted good but a bit salty. It took about 12 minutes after being seated to get first contact with the server. Hadn't had any water or drink order until then. We were seated at a two person table in between two very large very loud parties and two feet from another 4 person table. It was quite hard to even hear my wife over the large parties around us. My table wasn't completely wiped clean when we sat down, there was some left over food there and I had a slightly dirty side plate. It is a very large restaurant and I think they were having trouble keeping up with the volume on a Saturday night. Though this is all a common trend for us in the Lynnfield Marketplace, most restaurants are very loud and busy and they all seem to struggle at peak with handling the volume.

It wasn't terrible. But I am not sure I would go back.

Really love this place, been here many times and always proves enjoyable. Tonight my husband and I checked in for our 7:15p reservations and it was extremely busy (1hr45 for walk ins) but told about five minutes for our table. After about 20 minutes we inquired as to the wait. We were greeted by Antonia who explained the wait issue, apologized and seated us within a few minutes thereafter. She told us that or apps would be complementary and again apologized for the wait. She checked on us several times throughout our dinner, as well. We each had a beer and guac and chicken taquitos for our apps. Main courses ordered salmon lettuce “tacos” and steak fajitas. The waitstaff were professional and pleasant, and all our food tasted fabulous. When our bill arrived the waitress told us Antonia had comped our apps AND drinks! She definitely went above and beyond to ensure we received excellent customer service. We had a wonderful evening and greatly appreciate the quality service Antonia provided to make it so! Thank you again !!
