Highly recommend reservations. If you don't mind loud music, this is a great spot for either after work, weekend lunch/brunch or dinner. Husband loved the food and we will be returning!!

Such a great atmosphere, music was amazing! Service was really non existent, no one came by to see how we were doing or if we needed anything after the food was brought out. Way overpriced especially the drinks! But my daughter had a great time celebrating her special birthday with family and being ablebto dance was well worth it.

I liked the place itself, it was a nice environment. I went there for my Birthday, my food was good, but my friends food wasn't good at all. The hookah is affordable, but they don't give you the option to change the coil, when the flavor was still really good. They made us pay another $15 for a refile when the hookah only needed a coil. And we were not pleased with it.

Everything was great, and everyone was very pleasant! My son even dropped a glass cup, shattering it, and they asked us if everyone was okay and safe. They told me not to worry!

I had heard good things about this place so I decided to try it out and made dinner reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday along with my kids. First off there is no available parking close to the place... and I drove about an hr from where I live...second, once in the location I was not greeted properly by the hostess. I let her know I had made reservations ahead of time and she did not bother to even ask for my name then she tried sitting me next to a table where hookah was being smoked and neither I or my husband where ok with that being that we had our kids and we are both non smokers. I asked the hostess to sit somewhere else and her response was that other tables where reserved for a larger party yet there was plenty of available tables and was thinking to myself why I even bothered for a reservation if I couldn't even pick where to sit??? The hostess still sat us on opposite sides of where the people where smoking the hookah.... the only thing I give credit to this place is the food... but terrible service with the hostesss they got there....

The place looks very nice. Nice that I have a choice to sit in or outside. Nice that I can go dance after dinner or watch a live performance. But the food was not fresh and over cooked. So disappointed. The only thing I recommend is the mama sushi. It was delicious. And the drinks aren't good but they are strong. Filled with different types of people. It's a place for a little of everything. Wished the food and drinks were better. Not in a rush to return but might check out a performance.

I liked the food but I cannot recommend this restaurant because it was just too much unnecessary noise. They could had lowered the volume of the speakers, but they choose not to. We couldn't talk and we could hardly communicate with our waiter, who was very nice, so we pointed at what we wanted. The place was not crowded for a Friday night. We asked to change tables because we were under a speaker - other tables were not much different. Why I wander they don't want to control the noise? I read other reviews and they talked about the noise but I didn't think it was THAT bad! Don't they want our business?

This restaurant is so overrated! I have had better Latin food. Music was so loud that we couldn't hear ourselves. Even the waitress had a hard time taking our orders. They also said that they had valet parking no one to be found. Had to park two blocks away.

Restaurant was great only thing that upset me after spending over $300 was that we asked about the night club they also had n they told us you need to step out n go around ok so we got to the club and we also paid $20 per 7 people really? Wen I told some friends at work they told me we didn't have to pay to go in we Could use the dinner receipt or something, y didn't anyone tell us after asking them about the club??

Way overpriced and gratuity is already added of 15% no matter how many people are in your party but they don't mention thAt so you may tip twice by accident which isn't right

Julien which was our waiter was very rude are sarcastic. Our bill was high enough that the tip was included in it. We left the entire amount due including the change because we wanted it to be even and not get any change back. The change was about 60 cents. When we left it julien said "you crazy I don't want that" "you guys need it more then I do" and left it on our table.

The ambiance is always great. They ran out of avocado so I didn't bother ordering some items. Sangria is great. Hookah is great. You can't sit outside unless you buy a bottle. Great live music. Overall fun times.

It was my sisters birthday. There was a buffet style serving. The buffet had breakfast and lunch dishes. Our reservation was at noon. The DJ. Was playing music, everyone seem to be enjoying it. Lucky we made our reservation for an early time. The restaurant was really getting busy by the time we left at about 2:30 pm. Price was reasonable, included food and drinks. We had mimosas and rum punch.
