Mexican
The decoration of the restaurant has been carefully selected from the most important craftsmen of Mexico. We enjoy its colors, within the geometry of Mexican Art Deco architecture; framing through its brilliant black and golden colors the splendor of its magic.
With the leading role, we have our monumental bars along with one of the larges tequila and mezcal selection in town and our bar manager created delicious and sophisticate cocktails.
Every cantina is a cultural expression of the place where it is found.
Gastronomy-wise, we have an extensive menu of Mexican Cuisine dishes, offering representative dishes of each state of the country, with traditional techniques and recipes (handmade tortilla, sauces made in a molcajete ), along with avant-garde techniques such as vacuum cooking, spherification, foam, etc. We constantly update our menu and the chef’s recommendations with new and top quality ingredients.

ONLY our Brunch Menu served Sundays between 12:30PM-4PM

Service was a bit slow. Hard to get servers attention despite giving a pretty solid effort. Food was hit or miss. I couldn't justify the price for the food, but the ambiance is worth the price. Great drinks too! Mariachi band took a bit long to make their way downstairs but put in a great show once they did.

The restaurant is suppose to open at 12 noon on weekdays, so when i went there was 12:05 and when i walked in, a gentleman, i assume he was the manager, approached me and said the restaurant is still not open? wow really? well what are the hours? it clearly states the restaurant has to open daily at 12. So i had to wait till 12:10. The service was also very poor, as one server started to wait on me, and later he said that another server will continue without giving me further explanation why is that? which made me very unwelcomed. I felt very unwelcomed and uninvited there. Will not come back and please do not reply at all.

This is a very nice Mexican style restaurant but it does have some drawbacks. To start with it’s very expensive. The food is good but not exceptional. Downstairs the room is very dark and the print on the menu time. Well we all have cell phones I suppose.
Service is ok but a bit unfriendly.

Waiter George was excellent. My vegan cilantro rice with vegetables was very tasty.
Also for vegans I recommend the beet salad.
I told George I was vegan and he did an excellent job making sure all my food was right.

Un restaurante mexicano upscale, el ambiente y decoración del lugar es excepcional con un concepto de open kitchen
A la hora del almuerzo que fui ahora solo tienen un price fix muy razonable de $25pp que incluye entrada, plato fuerte y postre, entiendo que son algunas de las opciones de su menú regular algo más pequeñas, lo bueno es que por $ adicionales puedes pedir adicionales por ejemplo cada entrada adicional cuesta $10

Mi esposa y yo pedimos de entrada el taco de cangrejo y las coliflores (moradas) asadas en una deliciosa salsa de maní, adicional pedimos el queso fundido y el guacamole, de los cuarto las coliflores son espectaculares!!

De platos fuertes los short ribs son de otro mundo se deshacen en la boca y el pulpo en salsa de piña estaba bien pero nada memorable

Los postres key lime y el queque de pistacho bien logrados vale la pena

Y almuerzo de viernes con Margaritas a $5 súper bien

The service at brunch was terrible. I used to love eating here. I had made reservations for 3:45 not knowing that they only serve brunch (new thing) Thankfully I got there early because the KITCHEN closeses at 3:30. And the restaurant doesn't open till 6. So, how can they accept a reservation at 3:45 if they don't even have food to serve?! ANYWAYS, we ordered some food early but at 3:35 someone at my table wanted to order more food and drinks and the waiter said no. That the kitchen was closed... A heads up that the kitchen closed at 3:30 would have been appreciated because I left the restaurant hungry and very upset, had to then go to another restaurant to eat. So service was terrible. They should advertise when you make the reservation that you will only be receiving a brunch menu if you go before 6. Very upsetting.

El servicio fue bastante justito aunque peor ha sido el ambiente que habia muchisimo ruido, hasta el punto de no poser hablar con una temperatura que parecia que uno este en el polo norte. Todos abrigados y deseando terminar para irnos por el frio que hacia. Obviamente fue comunicado a la camarera que parece que le hizo mucha gracia y no hizo nada al respecto. No volveremos.

Went on Halloween and they had a huge party going on that night i was not aware of. They placed us next to the stairs and we requested to be moved. They put us at a table towards the water and it was great view and much better area. The server was great and very attentive. The food was wonderful and just as expected. Overall would go back again.

The waitstaff was absolutely horrendous. They rolled their eyes at us when we ordered appetizers only. We asked about the free margaritas which were served in the bar only, when we asked if we could order them in the bar and bring to our table she rudely replied no. We had a baby with us and the noise level was deafening even for an adult. I would come here only if you’re ready to party and don’t mind pretentious rude service. Won’t ever return.

They no longer have Mariachis for brunch. The tab for four was over $450. Although the food is OK, definitely not worth it without the Mariachi. Save your money, you can easily find brunch with a view and ambiance for half the money.
