    Food is delicious, drinks were fine, but we had few hiccups with the service. What we ordered VS what we got. Otherwise a nice place, staff was really nice, the upstairs place a little loud so having a discussion over 2 tables was tough but not impossible.

    Great - Busy, noisy, youthful Mexican food far above average. BIG tequila list - including some not usually available. All in all - a great evening (Of course, the company had a lot to do with it)

    Extremely noisy, we were asked what kind of water we wanted but never got them, our food arrives at different times, so I watched my gf eat and my food arrives after she was done so she watched me eat. My drink stayed empty for a long while before being asked if I wanted another. The food was delicious, but front of house needs to get it together.

    This was the best Mexican food I’ve ever had. I started with the blood orange marguertia and the endalada Fresca. Then I had the steak ….carne asada con hongos. Absolutely delicious ❣️

    The food and drinks were pretty tasty, however the service was lacking. We were seated and then rushed through our entire meal. I would prefer not to be seated at all over being rushed through dinner and cocktails. We weren't even offered dessert. Without asking, items that weren't finished were taken away from the table. The ambiance is not a priority here and the noise level is off the charts. We could barely hear one another. This won't be a return dining option for any one in our party.
