We were quickly seated after we made a reservation. We received prompt service and the food was delicious!

Good vibes, nice decorations, chips and salsa were good. Menu is pricey for the quantity and value of what they give you. I feel like I ordered the wrong thing. The waitress suggested the carnitias tacos saying they were the best on the menu and were super flavorful so I chose that. When they came to the table they were extremely small and tasteless. I was very disappointed

I may be disappointed Because I had my sights set on something different. Nice location off Park Avenue but the food is just your average Mexican food. The brisket quesadilla was blah. Not much brisket. Nothing to remember. The drinks were good and the servers were friendly and fairly attentive given it was a Friday evening.

There was no reason for a reservation bc they seated by a list of first arrivals. Restaurant was extremely loud! Drinks were not refilled.

I asked one of the bartenders for some ideas on some healthy dishes, since Tex-Mex is not notoriously low cal and he went through several dishes with me.. with patience!
So great! The salsa is too spicy for me.. but everyone at my table gobbled it up.. I had red snapper vera cruz and our party of five had quesadillas and fajitas.. The only complaint I heard about the fajitas is there is no cheese to sprinkle on the fajitas... They did have guacamole, sour cream and salsa to go with them.. Margaritas are fabulous..

The restaurant was not busy and service took forever. The food was overcooked as well. Definitely better Mexican restaurant for better prices and quality of food.

Went here for my husbands 40th bday, I wont go back. First, I wrote in my Open Table reservation, told both hostesses and told our waiter it was a 40th birthday dinner and they did absolutely nothing for us for the special occasion. Second, the service was rude at every level. The hostesses were both unwelcoming and snotty, our waiter messed up our drink orders and the was slow to fix the mistake. After our dinner, we wanted to have a night cap in the bar area, so we closed out our check and due to the layout you have to walk through the restaurant, past the hostess area into the bar...and again one of the hostesses was outright rude to us like no guest had ever done that before. Once we were in the bar, no one came to take a drink order for 10 minutes, once a waitress came out, she was rude! It was the strangest thing. After all that, we were so ready to get out of there. Unfortunately we had already spent over $400 dollars on chips and guac, average small portion tacos and a couple margaritas, such a rip-off!!

Later in the evening I mentioned to a few other local people where we had had dinner, and funny enough they BOTH summed up their dinning experiences there exactly as ours had been - rude, mediocre service and way overpriced simple food, they never eat there!
