I'll have given a 5 star review but the hostess doesn't make you feel welcome.
We went for brunch and the mimosas tasted horrible. I believe it was the champagne used. The server was very gracious and removed them from our table and did not charge us for them.
The food is amazing too good thanks for all the attention!!!
The food was incredible! To be honest, we were not expecting that quality from this place however, the food was great and the service was friendly and top notch. Will definitely go back for more
Food was great especially the guacamole. Service was slow. Took a good 20 minutes to get a glass of wine after order placed. Restaurant wasn’t that full so I think he may have forgotten me.
It took us 15 minutes to get seated, but other than that we enjoyed our visit. Our server was was excellent and the food was yummy. We’ll be back.
We had a great server and the drinks were fresh!
Birthday lunch for 21stbirthday. It had great food
Sarah was great, food was tasty, margaritas were sublime and the ambiance was fun.
Service was fair…at best. Waitress was nice but SLOW. Food was acceptable. Margaritas were poor.
This was a very tasty restaurant. Our server was very nice, pleasant, and well versed on the menu items, as well as recommendations.
Fantastic food and service. Reasonable price and wait time. Great location by the canal! 5 stars!
Really good guacamole, food and service was excellent.
Good food. vegetarian option available. Good ambience
Pozole was really good
I had the Shrimp Fajitas. They were so delicious!!!
Great! Server was better than the super fancy restaurants we went to while we were in Vegas!
The food had such amazing flavors, drinks were amazing and the service was great.
There celebrating two birthdays, food was great!
The food was delicious and the service was great! We had the chips with salsa and guacamole, the enchiladas and the taco sampler with carnitas and carne asada! Everything was so good, and flavorful!
We also ordered the pomegranate margaritas, which were so refreshing!
Overall the experience was delightful! Will definitely be coming back here on my next trip!
Thank you for your excellent review and rating!
Tortilla salad was tasteless. Salmon was very well prepared. Server pleasant and efficient.
Family with wild children running in the restaurant was infuriating.
Absolutely love this place! We’re from the Sacramento,Ca area and it reminds us of Zocalo. Definitely will come here when we return to Vegas. Great food, service and friendly staff!
Always a great time! Yummy drinks and food.
Both me and my husband ordered chicken fajitas. And ended up having gastroenteritis . I don’t know if it was the chicken or the lettuce and tomatoes, but they definitely need to restock fresh veggies and meat everyday. Bad experience.
One of my wife's and I favorite restaurants to eat! Excellent service and the food is just outstanding! We always recommend this restaurant to tourists

The baked mussels are amazing! Food was good. Service was great. Prices were good for Vegas!
Thank you for your wonderful review! We hope to have you back again soon.
We had terrible service. And the food was not that great either. We ordered queso as an appetizer and we never got it before our meal came. We asked about it at that point. They brought it after we were almost done with our meal. We told them we did not want it at that point. The waitress did not like that we sent it back. She was not very attentive at all.

Our server left a lot to be desired. We waited a long time before she came to the table and we waited at least a half hour for her to give us our bill.
Fantastic place for brunch. Had an excellent dish with short ribs and the perfect pomegranate margarita! Service was wonderful in a beautiful setting.
