Diner Reviews
  • "Went here with a groupon on Friday night. They were nice enough to accommodate us even though we were late. There is a fine print in the groupon telling you which items you CANNOT order. Waiter added additional items to this list which I was upset about because I wanted to try the roasted pork. I felt mislead, discussed it and the waiter wouldn't budge. I didn't argue. Waiter was very unattentive but the food was quite tasty! Gratuity was ADDED to the bill which is upsetting, i tip based on service and he was MIA most of the time. Restrooms had ice cold faucet water and toilet paper not in holders. Food was good but wouldn't recommend this location."

  • "Bad costumer service.. Very discriminating.. Herd the waiters talk among each other to watch us that we may walk out. Also even we reserved our seats we had wait and also got pass on by other people who just came in.. Only bright spot was the food and setting.."

  • "The food was great. Highly recommend the ceviche. Service was ok...we asked for paella with no chorizo ( i dont eat meat or chicken) and it had chorizo. It was changed immediately, but still annoying."

  • "Every dish was on point. The grilled octopus, sweet plantain stuffed with cod fish and the ribeye was perfectly seasoned. The portions a pretty filling. The music was loud but it was after 11pm when it becomes more loungy."

  • "I went for a late dinner, but the place got busy after 9:00 I enjoyed the fresh green salad with goat cheese on crostini. I had the Yucatan Shrimp Roll, served with fresh greens. I would definitely go back and try other fish dishes."

  • "We went during happy hour and the drinks while good, had too much ice for a 6oz drink. The food was just okay."
