Great small plate selections. Our server Tiffany was exceptional. Explained the format, different items on the menu and when we identified ourselves as locals, she reminded us that we get a 15% discount. Prosecco poured was very good. She kept our glasses topped off. Thank you for a good dining brunch experience.

Love the new location. Followed them from the Shoppes at Caesar’s. The menu has something for almost every eating style today. I was there early, to eat before a concert, the service and food were spot on. I’d return again without hesitation.

Everything was acceptable, not special. I don’t expect special in a place that serves 100 tables an hour and I’m told by the waiter that “when your last guest gets here, order fast..”

Quesadilla was way too oily and greasy - used my fork. The ceviche portions were small - I don’t seek New American Medium which is XL from 1988 but a small ice cream scoop of ceviche for $15 or so was underwhelming.

Great mothers day brunch. Certainly not cheap, but unlimited and way better than a buffet in my opinion. Excellent service too.

Right from the start, I knew it was going to be a lovely experience. Our server was super helpful with cocktail selections, entree recommendations and was diligent with one of our party’s food allergies. The drinks and food were super tasty and rustic- which was exactly what we all wanted. We shared our meals so I was able to taste everything and it confirmed the fact I’ll need to return to enjoy more meals there in the near future. Thanks for a lovely evening.

HORRIBLE SERVICE, will never return...free chips tasted old or stale, we did order guacamole-GOOD, queso was ok but it got cold quickly so couldn't eat it anymore, we had to ask the manager for a refill on the tea, again horrible service, after our appetizers the idiot waiter asked if we wanted our check, we looked at each other and said ugh no we're ready for our appetizers, the vegetable quesadilla wasnt good at all, WILL NEVER RETURN

WOW!!!! I've loved this place in the past, and have dined her at least 3 other times, but their new Sunday Brunch menu......AWESOME!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND....but only if you're hungry and prepared to be adventurous and enjoy crazy amazing gourmet Mexican like you've never had before. There were 16 items to choose from at one flat price of $43.99/per person and you order as much and as frequently as you wish. I am typically vegan but when traveling, and in order to experience a meal like this, I will expand my restrictions to include fish/seafood and a limited amount of cheese. To our delight, and surprise, 11 of the 16 items offered fit within these parameters, and were nothing short of stellar. Well worth a visit.

Food and service was good, but this website said the prices were only one dollar sign and that only reflects the lunch menu. The dinner menu can get expensive quick with ever side being an additional $5. The chips and quac alone were close to $10.

Not as good as it used to be. Been many times over the years but this will be our last. It was not worth the effort to get to this restaurant. The margaritas were just ok. I love margaritas so the fact that I only ordered one and didn’t finish it is telling. Ordered a ceviche app. It was overdone with lime. My husband makes ceviche so I know the acidity of the lime is necessary to cook the seafood. But all we could taste was lime. Could not get any flavor of the seafood. Then we split an order of the chicken poblano enchiladas. It was good. But it wasn’t anything special. It’s been on the menu for years. Ambiance was killed by our waiter who felt it necessary to pull out a vacuum and vacuum the entire dining room. We are sitting at our table trying to enjoy our drinks and chips and he’s try to work the vacuum in between our table and the one next to us. I get trying to keep the floor clean but vacuuming during dinner?? Sorry but this place is done.
