    Everything about this place was absolutely amazing!! Our server Keaunna, was very friendly, knowledgeable of menu items and checked on us frequently. Perfect service!! The food was AMAZING!! ~ I highly recommend the Signature Asada - so yummy and cooked perfectly Due to construction, this restaurant is a little tricky to get into but definitely go for it. No complaints. We also had the opportunity to meet the manager Christi, whom I would also like to give a shout out to!! Our evening and experience at this restaurant was perfect.

    They had a set menu that was not good. I ordered the lobster Mac n cheese and it came out with neon orange like they heated up some Kraft. Super runny, gross and a total disappointment. The chocolate peanut butter mousse was gritty and tasted off. I will not go back, which is sad because I heard their regular menu is pretty good.

    Well, the greeting and service we had from the moment we entered were superb. Our server Maddy, was exceptional, and one of the most pleasant servers we have had in years. Our drinks were outstanding (Blue Agave Margarita) , appetizer (Guac) and dinners of Blue corn enchiladas with chicken and pork carnitas were scrumptious. we will be making this a regular stop on our way in to Denver for our frequent visits. Thank you for having employees like Maddy to serve your guests!

    Food was not good. For $45 for a new years special the selection and food was horrible. The Enchilada was basically boiled baby shrip with a scoop of beans and my wifes had some odd flavorless cold green sauce on a warm dish. The guacamole had no flavor and we had to get a side of limes to add a little flavor. We had to ask the manager to turn the music down at 9pm as we couldn't hear each other at our table. Would not recommend to anyone. We flew into Denver for the evening and after cab and dinner it was $200 of wasted money.

    I love their Sangria Swirl which is AMAZING! If you love fish tacos, then you have to order either the Mango Fish Tacos or the Blue Agave Fish ones. Perfectly created and with the sour cream and guacamole, delicious. We have been coming to this wonderful place forever. Loved that our server asked if we were attending an event so she could make sure we had enough time.

    We were running a little late for our reservation and they were good about it, but had plenty of tables. We were trying to get to a play and when we let server know, she said no guarantees, the kitchen was behind. There were lots of empty tables and food did take a long time. It was really good when arrived. We will go back as long as we have plenty of time.

    This is not what passes for “Mexican” food in many US places just as QSR restaurants don’t have the best hamburgers. Well-played, great flavor and very good service from our server Berit. My only suggestion is that by charging a nominal amount for chips and salsa, it prevents from ordering more, and higher price-point apps.

    Libations were great particularly the sangria swirl. Our party of 8 was there for happy hour and selected from the HH menu. I had the pesto carnitas 3 street tacos and a bit of the guacamole and chips and couldn’t eat the 3rd taco. Brandon was our server and knowledgeable, patient (with a bunch of ladies out for some holiday cheer prior to a play) and attentive. 5 stars all the way around! Well done!!
