    The food we tried was excellent, but the downsides were =parking turns out to cost $5+tip after the validation that takes $5 off the $10 charge, The happy hour Mon-Fri 5-7 only means they are happy to see you because we came in early before our reservation just to try happy hour and got charged full price at the cantina also no munchies unless you ordered off menu ( full price),and the one dish (hamachi ceiveche excuse my spelling) we ordered was way too small even for one person to eat ,it cost $12 and the waitress asked if we wanted to order two of them, this dish only had maybe a half oz of fish to share and the sherbet with it was maybe a half teaspoon TO SHARE! The rest of what we ordered was fine to share.
