After having thoroughly enjoyed both a dinner and a brunch here I would definitely be willing to return again at any time of day. The food is well made with perfect portion sizes and is always absolutely delicious. When coming here I have always found the service to be timely and all of the staff friendly and helpful.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great staff, greatGreat food, great staff, great ambience and really great margaritas!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMINCREDIBLE!We were visiting Seattle and found this 'hot spot' on OpenTable. We couldn't have been more impressed. We were amazed at the service, the ambiance (gorgeous candles/lighting with a great vibe), and most of all the food! Delicious guacamole and salsa. Our table had two kinds of enchiladas (chicken verde and smoked mushroom & kale) and everyone raved about them both. Our server was very nice and professional -- he even helped me with making the roasted beet tacos vegan-friendly (and they were AMAZING!). We were excited to try this place, but had no idea we'd be so blown away. Incredible food, great service -- thanks for a wonderful meal!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWE loved the food, as usual.WE loved the food, as usual. They have a great brunch menu that includes some items leaning more toward breakfast and some toward lunch. We have tried almost everything and have always been happy and many times surprised at just how great they can make an old standby taste. They take some typical brunch items and put their unique spin on them. Very tasty. But, music was a bit too loud to allow easy conversation.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy and hipThis is a very popular restaurant, especially on weekends. Reservations are recommended. I've been twice now and had great meals both time. It's an interesting, atypical Mexican menu that adds new twists to familiar favorites, like kale and mushroom enchiladas, or pork belly marinated in Mexican Coke served with golden raisins. I look forward to exploring more of the menu. There are half-price margaritas on Sundays. There's a salad with bacon and goat cheese that is to die for. The ambiance is dark, candle lit, can be intimate or really loud, depending on your seating.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceI love the relaxed feel of this place. The decor is really cool. Food/drinks were excellent. I definitely would return to try more dishes.
The complimentary salsa they serve with the chips is awesome! It had a great flavor and the right amount of kick...and they bring it in a small bowl unlike most joints where they give it to you in really small amounts - they give you plenty! I especially liked the taco of the day menu. They offer "old school" and "new school" versions of some classic tacos. We tried both versions of a few and were not disappointed.
I wish I could remember our servers name. She was accommodating and welcoming and made the evening that much better. The cocktails were great too. This is a great dining experience.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
