One of the best places I have been to in Miami. Food is incredible. Close to the best food I have eaten anywhere. And I weigh 260, so you know I’m eating. Drinks, delicious. Specialty drinks are great and got me feeling nice. Service was great. Atmosphere was awesome. You must go here if you live in Miami or visiting.

Our waiter, Pedro S, made a mistake when charging me the bill. Then came back to my table saying to check my bank account in front of my date. After sitting there feeling embarrassed and figuring out what happened, another waiter realized they had charged the wrong amount on they’re end. Pedro then made a scene, saying don't tip him and he’ll pay for the whole thing. It was embarrassing. What was supposed to be a perfect date with my girl, ended up being a ruined night.

The outdoor seating and atmosphere are great. The tortilla chips are stale and tasteless. The menu is unusual and not in a great way. The ceviche bowl was okay, the best thing that we ordered, and we ordered many dishes, was the chicken enchilada. Guacamole was average. Carnitas tacos were very salty and again everything is on the dry, stale hard tortillas and we normally love corn tortillas.

My boyfriend and I love this restaurant , this was my forth time there , the food was great but service was pretty bad, when we got there the fan was blowing so hard directly toward us, we asked the waiter to turned off he said NO and was rude , we asked another employee and he was able to accommodate us. Our waiter barely checked on us we would have ordered more drinks - We noticed that the tip was already included maybe reason he was not motivated - he was getting a tip regardless. I might go again but I would request a different waiter.

Really a wonderful experience! The atmosphere is lovely with hanging glass balls and baskets. Plenty of seating outside with the outdoor dining area surrounded with lovely cactus. The cocktails were yummy, guac very good. We ordered tacos, enchiladas to share and everything came out looking and tasting perfect. We shared this dessert which had goat cheese, order it, it was great! Then, the indoor dining seemed like a great experience too, the smells from the kitchen made it seem like a totally different place. I recommend to make reservations, as we did thru Open Table.

Phenomenal Mexican food. Amazing atmosphere with great energy. This was my second visit to the restaurant and enjoyed both times.

As an additional point, I was completely surprised that when I asked if they may have had my relatively expensive sunglasses in their lost and found from the last time I visited, sure enough, they had them, from two months prior. I think that reflects very well on the integrity of the crew.

Nice outdoor space and the inside area has a smoked wood aroma. We opted for outside as it was warmer and a nice busy bar scene.
The service was very hit and miss I had to ask the hostess on three separate occasions to find our server.
No one seemed to know when happy hour started or ended. Eventually we got some margaritas and guacamole and house made tortilla chips.
Both were excellent as were the side salsas especially the verde.
The chicken enchiladas lacked seasoning and the chicken which was shredded was really dry. The short rib mole was not typical to Oaxaca I thought as I’ve had many before from that region . I would go back here for HH and sit at the bar for sure. Service needs to improve overall and the mains could be overhauled as well.

Music from next door was too loud and not good music so made dining outside unbearable.

Our waitress was not good at all! We had to ask for the same things like water, more tortillas, more pico 2 to 3 times before we got the Items or refills.

I am cautious anytime I see 18% gratuity automatically added to the bill. This typically results is servers who really don’t care about the level of service because all incentive to do a good or better job is removed. This was our case. Server was very nice but the service was pretty poor. However the food was great.

Absolutely delicious food, ambiance, experience. In a great neighborhood of Wynwood and close to Wynwood Walls. Cocktails are pricey, $18 for a margarita, but yummy and I would go again for sure.

Went there for dinner and just loved it! Great food - great service. Enjoyed the experience. The cactii adds to the decor and set-up. If possible sit outside. The guacamole was really good as was the green salsa they bring. It's spicy so be careful - we just loved it!
