    They seemed to be out of several items on small brunch menu, and couldn’t accommodate some changes to meals (like eggs whites instead of the full egg) which was strange. The biggest bummer was that the mimosa bottle was $46, and when it came out it was a screw top bottle of J Roget, which is typically sold for $8 in stores. I understand an upcharge of double the price on alcohol is typical, but 6x the price for a bottom shelf brand that was pretty nasty was just a disappointment. Otherwise, the food was really delicious.

    The queso flameado with short rib topping was amazing as was the tuna tartare. Both were “snacks” at brunch. We were disappointed in the huevos rancheros as they were greasy and strangely served in a bowl so that I couldn’t taste the eggs, and covered inches deep in a sauce. The stoneware bowl mine was served in had two obvious chips, which kind of shocked me at such an upscale location. Very attentive service. My daughter enjoyed her carnitas dish and I do say the warm corn tortillas were spot on.

    Overall okay experience. Although the restaurant markets itself as authentic Mexican, it wasn’t. The mimosas were overpriced. The food was more like a watered down interpretation of Mexican food. It was edible and tasted okay. You’re better off going to Taco Bell.

    this place is a true favorite. the food is delicious and service is ALWAYS fantastic. Tonight it was Ellie and Ino making everything perfect. The margaritas too are some of the best tasting in town because they are made with fresh ingredients. We love the different crudo dishes. Once again thank you to the staff who do such a great job/top notch service// *I was also here for a sxsw edu event in their 'cave' room. I didn't get the name of the server(s), but they really made the dinner enjoyable. Thank you to also to the kitchen and bartenders. Truly excellent!

    Slow service. Hard to know who our server was. No one ever really told us and several people came to our table. Waited 20 minutes for a drink that they were out of. Poor communication between staff, bar and management. Not a great experience overall. I've been a customer for nearly 15 years, the amount of time the restaurant has been around. We even hosted our rehearsal dinner in malverde. I certainly expected more and was let down.
