Diner Reviews
  • "I very much wanted to like this restaurant: the space is warm and inviting, it is clean and tastefully decorated and the service is very friendly and attentive. The food, however, is not good. It's not bad, but it is not good. We tried several dishes on the menu, and only enjoyed the humitas, which are much lighter and sweeter than tamales, which they resemble. After that, the menu careens downhill, at a fair clip. I had the sausage plate: not good. My companion had the shrimp and rice: not good. We tried a turnover: ugh (once we managed to crack the cement-like pastry, the filling was just ok). And so on. It's too bad; it seems like a family place that I could really become attached to."
