Six people and no one left disappointed! Food quality and quantity were perfect and all the servers, even ones that worked other tables were more than gracious and helpful. Cannot wait to go back!

Food was great. Our server was disengaged. He did not seem overloaded just maybe his personality to be very casual. Did not have a grip on the wine list, if it is from Chile it is good attitude.

The air conditioning didn't work and our server told us this is was a common occurrence. The menu hadn't changed in more than a year. My braised short ribs were dry and and flavorless. I really liked the place when it first opened up. I don't plan on going back.

Ordered several drinks and appetizers. Server rudely reassured us that " it's okay". Did not know a bill of $85 was a problem. He smelled like smoke. Would explain why we waited 25 min for water and drinks at $15 a piece. He called us "Guys". We are ladies. Corrected me when I referred to the civiche coconut milk as "fish juice". Needed new plates.

We are having our upcoming board dinner there in the private room downstairs and wanted to try it first. Loved it! The décor is fabulous - felt like Mexico.

This is always a great place to gather. Thoroughly enjoyed by our guests visiting from out of state. Cocktails prepared carefully, and a variety of appetizers and entrees were enjoyed by all.

1. The quality of the food was terrible. I had chicken and it tasted like it was freezer-burnt.
2. Great looking space other than being a touch too loud but nothing outrageous
3. I felt that the service could have been better but wasn't, on the other hand, terrible
4. Fantastic rooftop patio
