Oaxaca's food is not like the rest of the Mexican Food. It's real. The guacamole is awesome, and they make it to your liking at your table. The meats all have their own flavor, so the meal isn't relying on the sauce or spices added to it to taste good. Ingredients are fresh. It's not like some restaurants do Mexican: where all you taste is the cheese and spices. It's not greasy, or sloppy. They also have a decent happy hour. Also, they validate parking if you park in the Temple Street Garage.

Great food but bad service. Maybe it was a fluke. I would give it another shot.

a year ago this place! The food is just outstanding. Had dinner with a few friends and the servers where very outgoing. Not always a big fan of Mexican food but had no complaints.

Ive gone to this place 3 times and the first two times the service was ok, the food wasnt anything special and the prices seem a little over priced. Then the 3rd time i went with a big group and it was comical how bad the service was. we were ignored all night and then told the kitchen was closed. Then after we convinced them to make us food he got orders wrong, forgot to get my girlfriends entire meal, and got every drink order wrong(how do you mess up beer?) then it even took about 30 minutes just to get the check. i gave two stars because by the end of the night we were all laughing at how bad this place was, so we did get a good laugh out of it all

My 3 friends from Washington D.C. Came up to visit and I choose this place for us to eat, also along with 4 other mutual friends from CT; altogether totaling 7 people. When we got there not many ppl were there, but somehow the service was still extremely slow. It took 20 minutes to get water. 15 more minutes to get out ginger ales. 45 minutes to place the order and 2 hours for it to be brought to the table. It was also wrong orders for many of us. I ordered a shrimp dish that came with with rice and sauce. I asked for mashed sweet potatoes on the side, instead they put the mashed sweet potatoes with corn in it and in the sauce with shrimp around it. Who would ever think to want that?! and I asked for rice 3 times so I could eat what was apart of the entree and they never brought it. We sat there for 2 hours waiting for our food, very hungry. Other big parties came to eat and could hear them complaining, and one party got up to leave after waiting an hour and a half. It was a very disappointing experience and a bit embarrassing to have brought my friends there from out of town. This was also the day after new haven restaurant week. Not sure if they were understaffed or not use to serving a party of 7 but I but I would not back again.
