Tacos were great, small plate (steak) was overcooked, tough and bland with pities that we’re out in a fryer. Service was slow but courteous
Menu was only online and hard to scroll through.

Maybe the restaurant could block off the traffic from the rest of the public walking through the outdoor seating area. That really took away from the dining experience.

This was our second time here and we were a little disappointed because they do not update their menu on open table or google. We went to eat their tiramisu waffle and it was no longer available, however it was still showing in the menu. You have to get there and scan their QR code to see what's available and what's not. Also, be aware that of you sit outside, below the balcony, it gets extremely hot and uncomfortable, unless it's cloudy. The service was outstanding and their churro waffle is delicious.

The service wasn’t that great. Our waitress never came to clean up our plates and she seemed to be in a rush every time she came to the table. Also the food was just fair. I heard about the brunch and ended up getting steak and potatoes with the eggs. Turned out to be just ok. May try again when it’s not during COVID times

I dine at this Restaurant for lunch. Had a Taste for Mexican outside of the normal Taco Bell, Chipotle vibe. Arrived at the address couldn't notice the restaurant so I called and was put on hold while on hold I walked around the location trying to find the restaurant while still on hold I came upon the restaurant at the rear of where it was suppose to be by the address given. As I walked up to the Hostess she picked up the phone asking could she help me, to her surprise i was rite in front of her seeing that the restaurant was empty besides a few customers sitting out front on the deck and seeing her in a nice conversation with other staff members, guess her conversation was more important then me being on hold on the phone trying to give them my business. After informing her I was the person she had on hold she admittedly seating us. Then came the waiter when I thought it couldn't get worst. Well wait before her lets talk about they have no menus i have to scan a code to see what they are offering now I know this 2020 but what if I didn't have a cell phone or my battery was dead from me being out all day how would I know what to order the waiters answer well I don't No! Ok well how bout sense the restaurant is trying to be covid-19 proof tape the menu with clear tape to the tables or print them on disposable paper, guess that's to much like rite! So after using open table website to see their menu me and my guess placed our order. So we had our drinks finished our drinks an still was waiting for our food. Chips and Dip was bring out to the table finally lets just high the salt that was on the chips was like just eating a container of Morton salt. Then after 30mins the food finally arrived the presentation was just awful then the way the waiter just threw the food down on the table like we was getting on her nerves. Lets say i left no tip and will never come to this Restaurant again its now on my list with Mother's of Federal Hill of terrible food and service.

This was our first visit. The food is delicious. The mahi mahi and steak tacos needed a little bit more seasoning and flavor, but aside from that everything was perfect. The best calamari I have had in Maryland was here, is a smaller portion than average, but exquisite!! We also ordered cauliflower tacos which were unexpectedly delicious. The service was great, and the water view is a great element to add to your experience here. We ordered calamari and yuca tots as appetizers, 4 taco platters, 1 shrimp quesadilla, 1 guacamole and chips, 2 beers, 1 sangria and our bill came up to $121. It doesn't get any better than that. Can't wait to try their tiramisu waffle for breakfast!!

My first time dining was a mediocre experience. Now being a server myself I let a lot of things go but I’m also particular about things. When my party & I came in we were seated, 10 minutes into being sat a host comes over with waters I said to her could I get a club soda with lime instead but leave the water for the last guest we had arriving. The host responded “ Your server should be with you shortly” wow! I was disappointed in her service because I wouldn’t just gotten the club soda & let the server know their table was waiting. A couple minutes later the manager comes over with the club sodas saying our server should be over shortly. Another 15minutes passed & still no server. So it’s around 8pm still pretty hot out and as you can imagine my party and I are ready to order food and drinks. I get up go to the host stand and explain to them my part has Waited at least 20 minutes and no server has been over even just to say give me a few moments and I’ll be with you. It was like we were invisible. After that she gets the same manager he comes over and expresses he is sorry for the delay and the first round of drinks would be on him. Our server finally comes over and we order drinks and appetizers. The much anticipated shrimp quesadilla appetizer came out and it was cheese so now we have another mistake. Our server said he knew we ordered shrimp and there was a kitchen mix up ok fine. Overall I just wish things would’ve started better my suggestion would be keep your servers section in one area versus 1 table on one side of the restaurant & another table in the other side. It’s way too difficult to keep up. I ended up loving the food and the server stayed pleasant and for that I was thankful I will be visiting again soon hopefully it won’t be as many hiccups.

The menu was lackluster. Nothing like the menu from opentable. The only options was guacamole and tocas. No fish selections and only one chicken option. The kids menu literally only had one item to choice from. Was very disappointed that this was the Father’s Day dinner we selected. Please update menus to reflect the actual options
