Fernando, our server was great. Friendly, efficient, and he even checked on the parking lot next door to see if the attendant was there that night (he wasn't). Food was very tasty and creative. It was quite busy on a Monday night (many restaurants in this area are closed on Mondays), and we do wish our dishes had been a little warmer, but otherwise a very pleasant evening.

We were disappointed in our table location. It was located at the swinging doors to kitchen. I didn’t want to sit there. We made reservations weeks ahead. We had a 6:30 reservation they told me we would have to wait until 9:00 for a different table. Luckily 15 minutes later we found out that we could have a table near bar that was open the whole time we stood there. Disappointed in hostess. Food and waiter were very good.

Been going here for a few years now when in town for a conference and the place never disappoints. Great selection for both food and drinks. Service is exceptional!

Our server was friendly, personable, attentive and educated in menu and able to communicate such. We did not feel rushed. We sat comfortably in a booth....Soooo love a booth/table seat....
Enjoyed Freshly prepared food...Love the goat cheese guac and salsa and chips....
Love the decor, lizards, vases, lighting...and dinnerware...clear and blue rimmed heavy glasses....
(could have used a little more water delivery to the table....but honestly, we are heavy water drinkers - so average diner may not have noticed)
easy to park and access - street is nicely manicured with upgrades to nearby buildings.

Next time that we're in - I'll take pics to upload....now that I know this survey is available and photo uploads can be included.
Thank you ~

The service was very good as well as the food was great. I appreciated the reimbursement from the Chestnut street parking, $5.
