Food was great! Service was great! We were disappointed there was no tortilla chips and salsa offered to us while we waited for our friends to arrive.

We have been here several times now and the food is consistently excellent! The queso fundido con chorizo and quacamole are two of our favorite apps. Love the classic margaritas. Tried the mango goat cheese cheesecake for dessert and it was fantastic. We have not had anything on the menu that would don't like. The taco platters are excellent and a great deal. The service has become much better, it appears they were off to a bit of a rough start, but have definitely made progress. We dined inside this time, the music could have been a tad softer, a little hard to hear at times, but still a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend this place to anyone! We will be back!

I definitely love the ambiance, the decor and of course the food. Everything was great from the queso fundido chorizo, to the chicken quesadilla, to the skirt steak. However I was quite disappointed in the drinks. Our waitress recommended the Tulum Vibe and it just wasn’t that great to me. Overall I would go back again and recommend this place to friends.

Food is expensive the outdoor smell like a garbage can was left on the sun for weeks and the place is full of flies so when you eat it is super annoying. If you are looking for an expensive Mexican food in Wynwood with bad smell it is the place to go.

In the inside dining room, we had two large groups 10 to 12 people both tables. The music was so loud that these folks, more than 20 altogether, had to compete and shout above it to be heard. There were only 4 of us at our table, but at times it was impossible to hear one and other and hold a conversation. Recommendation - if possible, adjust the sound level of the music to the circumstances. Other than that, everything was fine.

I took a group of girlfriends who were visiting from out of town. We had a reservation, and the only immediate seating availability was outside, so we sat outside. The decor is beautiful, but unfortunately there is a club next door, and its music is excessively loud. We could barely hear ourselves. Our server was only okay. He did not check on us until we were finished eating. The food was only okay, too, and the lighting was so low that we couldn’t see our food. I may give it one more chance if I can sit inside (which is also beautiful), but I was definitely disappointed.

Great concept, good food and flavors. The restaurant inside is nice but the outside is too noisy due to the next door club. Will definetly go back during earlier hours (when the club is closed) to enjoy the outdoor bar. Great selection of mezcals. Our server seems to be a little distracted at the beginning and service wasn’t that good but he corrected it at the end. Hence the 5 star review. The manager on the floor and the support staff were very atrentive picking up the slack of our server. Good job everyone!

The club next door had their music so loud, that we couldn’t hear our waiter. The food and service were great, as was the ambiance. If I was the owner, though, I would be concerned the club next door would deter people. ...as I would think twice about going if I wanted to talk with whomever I was having dinner with.

Your queso fundido and guac are amazing! Love the homemade tortillas! Started out with the Clasica Margarita and it was perfect. Your staff is wonderful, very attentive and pleasant. The chicken tacos were delicious and we had a fantastic time with the high energy clientele and great music. Will definitely return.

Meh. Vegetarian server had no opinion about anything on the menu. Keep pushing drinks. Most of the food was under seasoned. Location was fun, decor festive and a nice bar scene. Go for a few drinks then eat elsewhere.

It Is our second time to the restaurants and we absolutely love the food, it is outstanding. We love the queso fundido with chorizo , the guacamole and the pork tacos especially!The classic margaritas are great as well. They need to focus on overall service. The service is either too slow or too fast, we experience this both times we were there. There are either checking on you too much or not enough for instance our margarita glasses were empty and we had to find them to get another one. One of our menus did not have the menu on the inside, only the cover. Then they took all of our menus after we ordered drinks so we had to get them back to order food. So again overall we love the place, great atmosphere and great food. Service just needs to be refined.

This was our second time back in a week, and the first time everything was spectacular. However, an overly-loud music volume (considering it was 6:30pm on a Wednesday) and inattentive server (took over 20 minutes and a reminder to get and pay our bill) led to a less-stellar second experience.
