Margaritas were mainly ice cubes and not much drink. Extremely loud so not good for a large group if you want to talk together. I imagine it is fine for a small group and ask for no ice in your margarita...

We order burrito bowls and they took very long to come to the table. However, the service was very kind and courteous. Love the ambiance and the margaritas

(don't know what his name is but he was a perfect combo of attentive/caring but not overbearing). this was my first time there for brunch - they have 4 brunch items available that are breakfast focused on top of the regular lunch menu. i got the huevos divorciado - i thought it was really great, awesome flavors, but not heavy at all, very satisfying and tasty. their avocado toast was also really good. the only thing that was disappointing is the fact that they've changed their tacos al pastor which used to be one of my favorite tacos anywhere but now they do it with chopped up pork rather than the strip of pork belly, still a good taco but very unmemorable compared to the pork belly version. overall, we had a very nice easter brunch there! drinks are always very good! they do an excellent margarita!

The tacos were amazing! Something for everyone (the cauliflower tacos were great for the vegetarians in the group). All the items are great for sharing. The green salsa in the salsa trio was delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try a few other things we were too full to order.

Our food came out quickly though they did not have the verde pozole that I wanted. Portions did not quite match the price but everything was delicious.

I’ve eaten many times at Mani and Mikette and expected the service to be similar, it was not. The waiter took away silverware and plates while we were eating and didn’t bring replacements. Food is good but everything else was a dissapoinment. Will not return.

Margaritas were strong, chips warm, thick and salty--perfect. A few of our entrees took way too long to come out--but the waiter did the right thing and apologized and comp'd them. All in all, I will absolutely go back to this nice spot in Ann Arbor!

Some favorites of mine are the tuna tostadas, baja fish tacos, crunchy tacos, elote, adobo chicken fajitas, chopped salad, and truffle guac. They also have a great selection of tequilas. The bartenders and wait staff are friendly every time. We also request that they make fried jalapenos even though it's not on their menu and they always do it for us. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking for great food and ambiance.

We had requested (reserved) a table for 7 adults. They tried to squash us into a small table for 6. Eventually we were offered a table in the basement, which had plenty of room for us. Not sure why we weren't told when booking that it would be a tiny table? Food OK, well better than OK but service was slow - that may have been because we were in the basement? Not hurrying back.

The servers were all grumpy and no one smiled or acted like they were remotely happy to be there. I think happy hour would be worth the money, but just a regular dinner, you'll leave hungry and broke. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. The drinks were strong.

The family style tapas, delivered when it's hot, and lazy susan made for a fun relaxed atmosphere as individuals who didn't know each other got to share mutual interests, food tastes, and laughter. The acoustics made it a bit difficult to hear someone from across the table, but we were ready to raise our voices to fit the energy of the atmosphere and the strength of the fabulously tasting bites and bits. No one left hungry and all of our mouths had been introduces to varied flavors, each of which was delicious. One thing to note: the hostess forgot to tell the server that we had arrived and since the only traffic downstairs is to and from the shared bathroom with Mani, we weren't noticed until we notified the hostess. She graciously accepted fault and our waiter was prompt and attentive from there on out.
