We went to dinner here to catch up with friends and watch some sports on their 4 TV’s in the bar.

We drank great Margaritas and red wine with dinner. We loved the home made chips, guacamole and salsas. We enjoyed Rockfish Tacos and the Tamale combo. Good chocolate ice cream for dessert.

Very limited menu; mostly (dried out, cold) tamales and tacos.
The servers were pleasant and accommodating when asked to heat the food. No offerings of enchiladas, burritos, chili rellanos.
I would skip this one and won’t be going back.

I am sorry to hear of your bad experience. Cold food is not acceptable, and it must not have been run to your table on time. We are new, your experience is a training opportunity for our team. Enchiladas and burritos aren't on the menu because the region of Mexico we are serving doesn't authentically offer them. Our menu is limited and changes seasonally. Chili Rellanos will be in the winter! I would like to invite you to try us again. Direct message me and I would like to make it right.

What a fabulous place! We loved the food, wonderful selection of tacos, and the tuna tostada was a delight. Drinks were excellent, as was the attentive service. We will all be back.

I was there with my whole family including 2 toddlers. They accommodated us in every way! Our family shared most of the items on the menu. Our entire family are foodies, some from out of town. Everything we had was wonderful! I particularly liked the moist chicken and Shrimp Ceviche. The out of towners can’t wait to come back. My wife and I already frequent Arriba and try something new each time. You’re missing out on the best Mexican food in Seattle!

wow! I can’t stop thinking about all of the amazing tacos on the list. My favorite were the pulpo and shrimp. The salsas are amazing too! My group shared so many starters and loved them all! And the cocktails were awesome! We will be back many times.

Nice staff, good atmosphere. Food was extremely sub par. Lacked flavor and was over priced. Their chips and guac were great though! And my margarita was a heavy pour which I always appreciate. Go for chips/guac and drinks but skip the food.
