The food was so-so. One of the sides for my order was wrong and the corn on the cob was cold.
The tres leche cake was not as good as usual (we dined there for the past two NYE).

My wife and I have gone every New Year's Eve for the past several years and have never been disappointed. The food, drinks, and service are always excellent.

Mexican food at a whole new level. . . There is guacamole and fajitas for those who must have them, but venture beyond these staples to some of the chef's authentic creations like moles, Chile's rellenos, and lots more. . . Adventurous taste buds will be well rewarded!

We visited this warm, colorful place on a bitterly cold December night after seeing a movie at the Capitol Theater a mile down the road. I loved my CAMARONES CON SALSA CILANTRO: succulent, flavorful shrimp on a bed of spinach with a salsa on top prepared from roasted tomatillo, cilantro, jalapeño, onion and garlic. The beans and rice on the side were just fine, with the pinto beans neatly confined inside a small, boat-shaped serving dish. My husband enjoyed the CHILES EN NOGADA: poblano pepper stuffed with savory ground beef and topped with a delicious and unusual sauce of cream cheese with nuts. Drinks were fresh and tart. We'll be back. Next time I want to try the shrimp a la diabla.

Always a great experience. Terrific food, excellent value, fantastic service. Get the corn (elote) as one of your sides! Also as a gluten free diner I can eat most of the menu--and everything is clearly labeled. Vegetarians will find lots here as well. Delicious margaritas too. Come on Thursday when they're all $7!

Everyone was so kind! The waiter went out of his way to make my husband’s birthday by surprising him with a margarita! We will definitely be back when I’m not feeling under the weather!

This was my second visit. The food is very good and has lots of options - it's upscale Mexican but not too expensive. There is a good buzz of noise without it drowning the conversation. The decor is nice and the parking was not too bad. Quite a gem, I'll be back.
