Very cool decor and menu. Food was amazing. The grilled octopus appetizer is a must have and the ceviche was awesome. The only criticism I would have is that there were basically regular tacos and street tacos for entrees. No fajitas, enchiladas, burritos, etc... but everything was very good

Very eclectic Mexican restaurants. Starter dish of trio of guacamole and salsas served with house made corn chips and banana chips were excellent. I could possibly make a meal out of these alone.
The beat salad and empanada were another excellent choices along with tea smoked lamb ribs. The entree portions were large enough for two people. Finally the dessert, Churros, were one of the best I have tasted.
This restaurant is worth visiting. Next time I am in Atlanta, will sure return here.

We really enjoyed our dining experience. The booth was great for our party of 3 and allowed easy conversation due to the well designed restaurant. Refreshing to have a designer consider acoustics. The service was great. Friendly, well paced and knowledgeable. The food was great. We had the gaucamole/salsa tasting, octopus and entrees. The wine, Zaco, a recommendation from our server was enjoyed by all. We will be back.

A few years ago we were in town for business and had a fabulous dinner. We were back again this year, and all I could recall was the menu had many great sounding options and what I had was excellent. I didn't even recall the name of the place, but my co-worker had a better memory. We tried to get in for dinner, but it was just too busy. We even hung out to get to eat at the bar, but gave up. Wait staff were encouraging, and when we made it there the next day for lunch (yes, on-line reservations) they remembered us and said "glad you're back!". It set the mood and the food was again fabulous. It's indeed a foodie place.

There were 3 of us and we shared several things off the menu. Some were fantastic (Shrimp & Grits) and some were just ok. I don't mind paying more if the food is that good, but wasn't worth the expense of some of the other items. I know it was packed because of the trade show going on, but that shouldn't matter. I will give it another try next time I am in town.

excellent in every respect - nice room, great food, excellent service, very well priced

The best part is that they honored our reservation without delay - the bar area was full and people were waiting for tables but when we presented ourselves with the reservation info we were seated immediately!!

Very pleasantly surprised
