The food was not up to standard. My friend had the mini tacos and didn't eat any of them. The Sonora ribs were good, but a little too tangy. The margaritas were good, but really pricy. We had 3 margaritas, 2 entrees, 2 appetizers and our bill was over 200 dollars.

Best Guacamole, and every meal I've had in the many times I have eaten here has been wonderful. My duck was cooked to perfection, and the staff is courteous, attentive and the management truly cares that diners are having a wonderful experience.

We were running very late and ended up being the last table, however they never rushed us. The watermelon margarita was good and the shrimp tacos were amazing! Can’t wait to come back when I return to NY to try more menu items. 10/10 service.

Dinner, service and drinks were great. The ribs, corn and quesadillas were seasoned phenomenally and came out pipping hot. I sat in the front room and it was a little chilly with the door opening and closing constantly.

The food was really good and a good size portion. We both had the fillet mignon and both dinners were cooked as we specified. I downgraded the service because they did not tell us there were specials. As first time patrons, the only way we would know about specials is if we were told or if the menu suggested we ask about them.

Great entrees and cocktails on outdoor set up. Wish they had strong lighting or a cozier set up to block the street traffic and define the area.
