    Food was bland and it was a three hour experience for one drink each and a meal. We waited to pay our bill for 45 min

    It was good but not perfect. We seated at the entrance where it was cool from the open door. The place is very noisy. The food is excellent, some cocktails are not for everyone.

    Probably great for your instagram feed. Not so great for hearing yourself think. Decor is trashy. Food is also trashy, though there were a few things that were cooked with more finesse than we expected. Prices are not outrageous, at least.

    Hosts are friendly. Our server Isabela was superb. The drinks were strong and delicious. The taquitos, carne asada fries, street corn, octopus, guac, salsa were delicious but the empanadas were not. Definitely recommend and would visit again.

    They didn’t have enough staff on for lunch hour and we waited awhile for a server. Totally understand though. The food was amazing and the place is super nice!

    I picked this place because it came up on an internet search of romantic places to eat for anniversaries. When I booked (two weeks prior) I made a note that we were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary. So I wasn’t expecting to get seated at a bar high top, closest to the front door where everyone was constantly bumping into us or our table. We split four dishes. Some were exceptional and some were very average. The drinks were also very average and not entirely as described in the menu. But everything on the menu is $14-$16 a pop including drinks. The music was also very loud which is fine but it’s definitely not what I would consider a romantic date destination. Overall it was fine but I wouldn’t bother getting back into the city to go there again. There are better Mexican food options elsewhere.

    I do enjoy coming here. But the last two times we’ve gone the air is not on. It’s hard to enjoy dinner with friends when it’s hot and muggy inside the restaurant. Not sure if they’ve been waiting for it to be fixed but it was hard to enjoy when you can feel the hot air on you.

    The place was very warm and humid inside. Service was good. Menu was limited with barely any veggie choices. Guacamole and chips were good, drinks okay, but the rest of the menu items tasted average. It will be awhile before we return.

    Service was excellent. I had the nachos and the were a little different than I am used to but good, they are made with flavored chips and goat cheese. Margaritas were amazing. Ambiance was busy and fun! Make a reservation.

    The place is cute and trendy, lots of fun cocktails, however, the food was pretty awful. Would not recommend having dinner here, but it might be fun for a couple of drinks with friends. The food was really gross and cheap.

    High energy level in the restaurant probably due to the great drinks. Grab a reservation because even on the Tuesday night we were there most tables were filled. Food was excellent especially the octopus. Save room for dessert because the churros were amazing. Eat them while they are still hot.

    Food was great, unfortunately service was a bust. After taking our order we didn’t see her until we finished our meals. We managed to get one more cocktail, sad we couldn’t enjoy a fresh cocktail with our meals. Cool atmosphere and food was on point. Was a bit weird how everything comes out separately…….

    I took my 15 year old daughter and her best friend last night for dinner after some back to school shopping. It was our first time, and we loved it! Our meals were outstanding, and the teenagers loved the atmosphere. If you are looking for a quiet dinner, this is not the place for you, but we loved the energy. Our waitress was great too!

    Staff stood around rather than actually doing their job. Was there for 1 hour and never got water refill or asked how things are, so no water or drink. Food was bland, nothing has spice or flavor besides salt. Used to live this place but it caters to the basic white people that thing this place is “eclectic”.

    Made a reservation a week in advance for my birthday no problems being seated host was really nice. After we get seated there was a big party that got seated. Server took drink and food order altogether since we were ready after being there for 25 minutes. Food starts to come out staggered as in one entrée, three minutes goes by a side order comes out, five more minutes goes by two entrées come out, then the server never checks on us and ask if we need any drinks or telling us where the rest of our food is. Literally takes 40 more minutes for two more entrées to come out mind you the server wouldn’t even of said anything if we didn’t call her over because our friend wanted to order another drink (mind you he had to go up to her and cancel it bc it took too long). Finally get our food after everyone is obviously done eating. Server comes up to us and ask if we got our meals we say yes we already ate them because we were so hungry then she drops off the check and everything that we ordered minus the drink that we got taken off was on the bill. Server never even said that she was sorry or apologize for the staggered food being brought out. I spoke to the manager she was super sweet said that the large party was unexpected and that the kitchen and bar were backed up. I get it we’re all understaffed I’m a server myself but personally I would not tell a table who had a reservation a week in advance that that big party was unexpected when they literally all got their food before us and we got there before them. And if that was me as a server I would apologize multiple times offer them dessert and comp their meals. Manager comped our 2 meals. Overall for it being a Monday it was so busy and just didn’t make sense how the big part got their food before us, maybe the server just didn’t ring ours in? Drinks and food 9/10, service 4/10

    The food and our server were both amazing. However, even though I reserved a table in advance, I was told it wouldn't be ready for another half hour after my reservation time. The hostess was very nice and helped us find an alternative option for seating, but I would have liked to sit at the table I had reserved.
