It was a great experience but the food could definitely be a lot better for the price you're paying.
Amazing restaurants, great vibes, great location and bottomless deals!
Nice place for casual dinner with out of town guests. Food was upscale Mexican - well prepared and delicious.
I just love the food and the service here - it never disappoints, but keep in mind for anyone not familiar - IT GETS REALLY LOUD. Saturday evening is not a time to go and expect a quiet meal.
Went for Sunday brunch. The food was not very good at all compared to other restaurants that offer similar Mexican style entrees. Guacamole was OK. But Pork hash was stringy and greasy and the flank steak salad was subpar. The meat was low grade. However, the egg potato tacos were very tasty and the thing I would recommend most for brunch.
We went for a birthday brunch! The food was delicious and everyone had a great time. Just wish it had been a sunny day so we could have enjoyed better water views but we'll plan on that during our next visit! :)
The atmosphere and menu were good! The drink menu was also impressive. The habanero dip and chips were very good, however, we tried like 5 entrees (2 were omlettes) and they were all just ok. I think it would be a great place for happy hour or appetizers, but not so much for dinner.
The food was great. The services was friendly but a little slow in getting our drinks.
Great date night
Its great for younger people, the noise level was almost too loud to converse. We were at a corner table by the window whch was great for people watching. Food was very good but everything came out at once even with special request.
Food was very good as always. We came down for my daughter‘s birthday. I mentioned this in the reservation and they acknowledged this when we got there. I thought they would have bought up a little dessert for her with a candle, or something of the like. But they did not. That is the only miss of the evening.
Always good and has a great server
We went to enjoy the waterfront dining, but there were only a few tables set up outside. The service was great and our appetizers were excellent
Overall experience was GREAT!! I loved my food however one person in our party had their meal brought out wrong and then they brought her another one and it was still wrong. Other than that the overall place is great. I have been there multiple times and loved it.
Food very limited servings. Expensive for the amount of food. But food is good. My cocktail drink, i have to change the first one, the second didn't taste of too. But i didnt bother to change it again. Waitress not attentive enough. I felt like most of the time i have to look for her and waited longer. Overall, nice waterfront restaurant and food is good but expensive for the amount. Service is just okay.
This was a birthday brunch for since teenie friends who were absolutely thrilled with the choices, the view and the fabulous service. The coconut shrimp guacamole was exceptional! Highly recommend and I will return with more friends!!
The portions were generous and the food was fresh and well prepared. Restaurant was quite busy. We sat on the closed in porch which was cold, noisy and lacking in atmosphere. I think in the future I would wait for warmer weather to return when the porch is open and we could enjoy nice outside dining.
Everything was great except we had to move tables after being there for 3 hours (wish I would have known before hand)
Went for bottomless brunch, but was very disappointed to have paid $15 for unlimited watered down orange juice. My boyfriend got a mango margarita however, and that was great! Besides the drinks, the food was excellent. I would go back but I would not waste the money on bottomless mimosas.
Went for Sunday brunch. It was loud and packed but the vibe was great. Was seated by the door to the back even though we asked to be seated somewhere else. It was nice until people kept opening the door and the 30 degree wind chill came rushing in. Had to wear our coats the whole time which was uncomfortable. If we had of sat somewhere else I think we would’ve had a 5 star everything except for the food. We got the huevos rancheros and it was actually pretty bland which was disappointing but we also got the bar cocina guacamole and that was super delicious. The service was fantastic though, our waitress was super attentive and friendly.
The roasted squash in the salad was anything but roasted- it was totally raw. The cauliflower in the curry taco was also hard. Upcharging $3 to mix and match 3 tacos is ridiculous. You know they have all those taco options prepped and ready to serve. This was a disappointing dining experience.
Drunk brunch 7 days a week and a $15 prix fixe on weekdays. We had a wonderful time and would totally recommend.
Our meal was excellent and everyone shared and left completely full and then some! The duck quesadilla earned bragging rights and the hamburger tacos were the best ground beef tacos we all had ever eaten. Oh and did I mention the cheese dip so yummy we almost got a 2nd bowl! Will definitely return when in Baltimore. It was very busy and loud, but still a good time and a great meal.
Chef Jason food was bright and refreshing.
Our server was very hospitable and friendly.
Great place for drinks and bites.
Sheree was a wonderful server and we enjoyed all of our food!
Be wary of sitting by the window as it gets extremely hot with direct sunlight.
I made a reservation almost 2 weeks in advance for Vday. When we arrived the hostess (Gigi) seemed a bit biased in her table assignment, which was in the back of restaurant behind a column, by the bus boy station. Really???
When I asked for another table I was told that it was for a reservation. To which I responded “so this is table that I get with MY reservation?” I was eventually moved to the allegedly reserved table.
Our waitress was attentive and helpful with deciding between dishes. Food was decent. Papi’s tacos is better imo.
Food was ok, nothing to write home about
From the service to the food, this was one of the worst dining experiences I ever had. And I brought a party of 10 to the restaurant. It is a mystery why this place was so crowded. Maybe it's the bottomless brunch drink offer. Poached eggs came out as hard boiled, I needed a hacksaw to cut into a tortilla, and it was 20 minutes from when the first dish arrived to the last. Never again!
I was very pleased with my experience here. Making a reservation was easy, the food was great, it was not too crowded for a Sunday brunch, the service was quick, and the location was nice. I will definitely try to make it back the next time I’m in the city. I want to try bottomless mimosas.
Loved the atmosphere, had some trouble with the meal I ordered and the manager quickly resolved the issue. Things go wrong, but they were quick to fix it.
I truly enjoyed my experience!!
Good food and service good only complaint was there were empty tables for hours and hostess gave us a hard time adding two people to our reservation when they clearly could accommodate
The server was slow
We went there for brunch. The food was delicious as was the bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary’s. The service was great too.
Had a wonderful time there with family and friends and the food was VERY good and flavorful. The view was great and the service was great. The only negative is that it is SUPER loud in there so conversation is REALLY hard to do in a group. I don't think there should be that loud of music for lunch time. Otherwise it was a great time.
The Tuna Taquitos and Shrimp Quesadillas were awesome!
Thank you for showing a good time out first time there. And giving us a good table by the window thank you
Classic case of OpenTable and Yelp ratings being overzealous or (worse) influenced by the owners. If you want a potentially fun bar scene for a group outing and "fair/not bad" bar food, Barconcina may meet your needs. If you are seeking quality Tex-Mex, or any semblance of a real dining experience, then avoid Barcocina. This is Fridays (fka TGI Fridays) on the water, where the water offers little or no allure in the Winter. Much better Mexican and Tex-Mex food options exist at Nacho Mamas, Blue Agave and even Mother's.
We had a business lunch for 6 at your restaurant and it was not only delicious, but the perfect spot for an upbeat meeting with teaming partners. Our food was great, and our service was also fantastic. We'll be back!
