    Not a fan. I understand the point of small plates but quality of food do not match prices. Found a piece of wood in one of my dishes and my waiter insisted it was somehow my fault. Do not recommend and will not return.

    It's pretty, stylish and cozy! The food was good but there wasn't anything that makes me go "i gotta go back to this plate!". All the pates we ordered was delicious, and beautiful, but i need a bit more "kick" to each dish. I was sad about dessert choices. They really don't have much options.

    Had a Christmas dinner for my husband's office there last year. Really lovely, great food and superlative margaritas. Not a TON for a vegan (which I am), but enough, and they were sweet and accommodating. Noisy, of course, but lots of fun.

    I had such high expectations for this restaurant. I was thoroughly disappointed with the food and drinks. The best thing was the guac. But the margaritas tasted watered down and the arroz con pollo had no flavor. The tacos were underwhelming, not to mention the tortilla was soggy when it reached the table. Maybe next time they will get it right. The service was excellent and so was our waiter. The ambiance was great. Just wish the food had been better for the price— I wanted to be wowed and I was not.

    Absolutely terrible service which is very disappointing because I have dined here many times before. I had also left this review and I believe it was deleted because I just got asked again. Being it was such a bad day of service, on my birthday no less, k felt the need to reemphasize how negative a night I had.

    Our party of 2 had a wonderful late lunch at ABC Cocina. Service was lovely - very helpful and knowledgeable. We never felt rushed although we were by far the last table to leave. The food was inventive and delicious. Lots of gluten-free options. Our server suggested a Mexican, slightly effervescent white wine which was very different and delicious. We have been here several times before - we always leave happy - and we will return.

    Lovely restaurant with friendly service. However, the word "cocina" implies Mexican cuisine, and as such, it was about as disappointing as possible. In fact, it was more pretentious than tasty: bland tacos and empanadas (no wonder there's a bottle of habera salsa on the table...without it, the food had no discernible flavor) and an overdressed salad.
