The restaurant was great, but I can't recommend it and won't be returning; staff informed us while there that the doors are being closed permanently. Hate to see a restaurant with very high quality food and service close; they are not always easy to find, even in Austin.

There are better options for Mexican food. Chicken and fish portions were skimpy. Several items were to heavy on line or salt. One the plus side service was friendly and responsive

I went for my birthday dinner and this place was disappointing. The margaritas were way to strong, and the food was very average. It was overpriced for the quality. This place was empty on a friday night - so that says alot for a mexican restaurant downtown. There are so many better places in Austin to eat.

Considering we were a group of 13 people on Friday night of a biker rally in downtown Austin, TX , they did an ok job. We got in immediately prior to the reservation time. The one waiter we were given was totally overwhelmed, another waiter should have been allowed to help considering they were not packed. The bartender was overwhelmed as there was only one and it took a very long time getting drinks and cocktails. Overall, they could have been a bit more mindful of this large group and the tip would have soared. The food was good overall, hard to please everyone!

JUST DROPPED IN FOR EARLY DINNER & AVOID 6 PM TRAFFIC. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD, WAITER WAS ENTHUSIASTIC & KNOWLEDGABLE. THE ONLY DISAPPOINTING THING WAS TO LEARN YOU DO NOT BOTTLE & SELL YOUR RED SAUCE YOU SERVE WITH CHIPS. IT WAS SOOOO YUMMY!

I ordered one of their signature dishes and it was one of the best meals I have ever had!
Service was excellent.

Waiters were standing around because they were not busy but we were having to signal to waiters to get service. I don't like having to do this.

Terrible service, bad food and watered down drinks. I can overlook the service...maybe the server was new or having an off day (it wasn't busy) but the food was not good at all and the top shelf margaritas were really watered down. I won't be back.

Great for large groups - one of the few places in town that would even let us make a reservation for 16 people - but the food was just "meh." The guacamole was bland , and my pollo con whatever was just a tough rubbery slab of chicken with some canned spinach flopped on top. Given the high prices, I expected better. Won't be back.

The food was very good, service was fine. The brunch menu was great. The complimentary mimosas were an added bonus. They also validated my parking which was very nice.

My husband ordered a steak and you would think for the price it would be cooked as requested he first time and he had to send it back. Also, we didn't get our appetizer, once we got our meal we mentioned that we didn't get the appetizer. The food had good flavor but for and fine dining restaurant you would expect the cook to not over cook a steak for that price.

This was our first time here. We went here because it was close to the Moody Theater where we were going for a concert later. The food was great, the happy hours specials were great, and the best frozen margaritas!!

The restaurant was very close to the hotel we stayed at that we were able to walk to dinner. We were seated right away and our sever was very quick to acknowledge us. It was very cool to watch him make the guacamole in front of us. The drinks and food was amazing.

Great Mexican food in a tavern type atmosphere down the street from the JW Marriott. Food was authentic and service attentive. Will go back again!
