Tired this for the first time. Nice design, excellent food and excellent service. The noise level is terrible!!! The waitress has to almost yell to be heard and we had to speak so loud all evening we were hoarse when we left. We won't go back because of this. We just do not like going to restaurants that are so loud you find yourself shouting to be heard at your table. It's too bad because the design and food were great.

Went on a Saturday afternoon and am so glad to have stumbled upon this place! The mimosa flights had real fruits in them! The shrimp and grits were to die for! The staff was attentive and the drinks were strong and good.

My friend and I had a wonderful dinner! The people were very attentive and friendly; service was excellent! The Pino Noir was amazing. The special appetizer salad (arugula w/ sweet potatoes and candied walnuts), the Burata, Fettuccine w/ shrimp and vodka sauce, and the special entree, spinach mushroom ravioli in a cream sauce was incredible! Wonderful restaurant! Highly Recommend!

Let’s start with the weakpoints: The lobster bisque was good, but we’ve had better. The halal wagyu was very good, but forgettable (through no fault of their own, I’ll explain). On the better side: Their mocktails, particularly the strawberry mojito and tropical fruit punch, were really good. The fried calamari was on point. The bread was very good, especially with the eggplant dip. Sweet potato fries were excellent, as well as the potato au gratin. Now for the truly memorable: The risotto, one of the best I’ve ever had. The kobe beef tasting, though expensive, was well worth it (I do not recommend ordering any other steak with it, as it will ruin the other steak, even if it is another wagyu). The goji berry creme brulee and the passion fruit sorbet were exactly what was needed to end the dining experience with a bang.

Arranging a birthday celebration for two the night before Thanksgiving could have been problematic, especially for a group of six. But, Shiraz was up for the challenge! They welcomed us warmly, guided us through the menu and and included thoughtful "extras" with each course. The Iranian appetizers were tasty and plentiful and the entrees superb (Note: try one of the different varieties of rice which accompanies most plates!). We were feeling pampered and happily full when Shiraz topped the evening off with a grand finale consisting of a selection of their unique desserts dotted with birthday candles! Thank you, Shiraz for everything.

The server Chad was one of the most attentive servers I’ve ever come across. And he shared the lovely history of the bar which gave us chills. The burger was fantastic. Good, chill music. Not super loud. Very affordable.

We went with friends and we all had fantastic meals. The food was delicious. Two of us had the Barria tacos. Omg amazing. Definitely would order those again. Another had the chicken tacos and the carnitas, also great. We started with the ceviche (Compachane) and the homemade chips. Outstanding. The Pol’Kanes was delicious as well. At first we were thrown by the cinnamon rice but don’t be-it’s not sweet at all and it was a perfect compliment to the spicy. Some reviews mentioned the popcorn was odd but we loved that too and the seasoning is authentic to Yucatán. We had margaritas which were spot on and tried some of the tequilas. The service was super friendly and attentive. They were not slow and the pace was just perfect. I would highly recommend Tatu and we will be back for sure!!

When I booked this restaurant I went off the menu and pictures on from here. When I got there after finally finding it (it’s a restaurant/bar inside the Westin) I was very hesitant and we contemplated going somewhere else. However, I’m very glad we did not. Our server, who I didn’t catch her name, was awesome. She gave a drink recommendation and advised to she add triple sec to take away the butter and she was right, the drink was delicious. We ordered the wings and they were very good. And I got the bacon cheddar burger, which was cooked perfectly. The dill pickle aioli was so good! Overall, don’t judge a book by its cover, cuz this one was worth the try.
