    Too much sour mix in margaritas, meals came out lukewarm. Food tasted fine. Would be willing to give another chance.

    Though we had our reservation set for close to 3 weeks, we were placed at an uncomfortable small high top table. I kept getting bumped, my guest were cold because it was so closed to the door. They obviously overbooked. I generally have a great experience at this restaurant but it’s usually because I have come before 6 pm. Also the food tasted bland. When my guest asked for an option that was not spicy, what she received was super spicy.

    Service was slow and weird. It started with an awkward hostess when we walked in the door. We were celebrating a birthday and had to track down the server every time we needed drinks. He would also forget part of the drink order but we didn’t have the heart to tell him.We were a party of 8 and 2 of the entrees came out ice cold. If drink maintenance were a priority, we would have stayed to hang out after the meal. I’ve been here at least 20x and this was the weirdest and worst service.

    We booked a table for 17 for a surprise 30th birthday on Saturday 11/16. The food was amazing and the service was superb. I’m pretty sure the chicken empanadas are the best empanadas I’ve ever had in my life. Everything was delicious and our server was amazing especially to be able to deal with such a large, loud group. I highly recommend this restaurant. They were so accommodating to our group, even allowing us to bring in decorations. One tip- parking is not great so I suggest giving yourself plenty of time to park or take an Uber if you can.

    A hidden gem in Northern Liberties. Our party of four shared two pitchers of blood orange margaritas along with appetizers. Our nachos were very good, but the calamari was over-cooked. We each had a different entree. My carne asada burrito bowl was very good. The steak was well seasoned, tender, and cooked perfectly. The rice and beans helped to create a nice combination. I added some raw jalapeño peppers, which made the dish very hot and tasty. The other entrees in our group were equally as good. The service was slow but attentive. Great atmosphere with several rooms including an outdoor patio. The bill was very affordable, which is one of the many reasons that will have us return.

    Loved the food and the wait staff was great, but the place was so hot with no A/C and no ventilation. As well the room is very loud. Not sure if A/C was broken, or just not able to keep up with the heat, but not comfortable to eat/chat in this environment. Would go back, but def not during the hotter weather.

    The food was excellent and we didn’t have to wait long for food. However our waiter was terrible. He was quiet and unfriendly. He didn’t come and check if we needed anything the whole time we were there (which was almost 3 hours because he disappeared). I would go again but hope for a different waiter.

    They have enough vegetarian options. Our server was able to handle our large party of 18! Blood orange margarita pitcher was okay, the spicy margarita by the glass was fab! Appetizers were on the sweet side - friend plantains & cauliflower empanadas. Guacamole & enchiladas were good. The Brussels sprouts bowl was fantastic! Hard to find parking

    Wow--service was terrible tonight. Waiter forgot to put in one person's order (out of 5), never brought our chips & salsa despite asking multiple times, they tried to bring us 2 drinks that weren't ours....and then put one of them on the bill (when we called it out, he was just like "oh yeah that must've been that table behind you"...what?! And you just leave it on our check?). And had to ask for check multiple times to begin with. Food was good but took off a star for the margaritas which were overly sweet and seemed like they had hardly any tequila. 3 out of 5 of us have been before and enjoy the food, but we agreed this was the worst service we've had there.

    Had about 16 people for a birthday dinner. We ordered about 10 pitchers of margs and barely felt a thing, so we asked if they could make them stronger. After they did supposedly, we still barely felt a thing. Service was average, but there was a lot of us and it was busy that night so we understood. Food was the best part about the meal. Everything was correct when it came out and it was very good. In conclusion, we were all very stuffed, but sober, at the end of the night.

    When I clicked on directions for the restaurant from the Open Table App I was brought a very roundabout way to the wrong location which was a VERY bad part of the city. The actual restaurant was 2 miles away! The restaurant is actually in a very nice neighborhood... once we got there.
