    The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Our server was on top of it and the food came out quickly and tasted great. It was a good choice for a date night because it was lively but you could still have a conversation.

    The food was just not good. The steak in my salad was tuff and extremely difficult to cut. My wife did not like the shrimp ceviche she ordered, and everything was lacking salt including the guacamole and chips

    Prices were high and food was not very good. Most likely won’t return. My daughter had been told to try this place so we went for her birthday. The short rib enchilada was supposed to be their best dish but I was disappointed by amount of filling and flavor of sauce. Sides of rice and beans were also sparse. Others in my party were also disappointed with their dishes.

    The vibe and ambience is nice here. But the items we ordered were tasteless and such poor quality. We showed the waitress the chicken in the salad and how a knife couldn’t even cut through it, and also how poor the quality of the salad was. She just replaced the chicken and left the poor brown leaves in the bowl. And no one touched the salad, we were expecting her to remove it off the bill since her poor excuse of fixing the problem was terrible. Anyways they definitely lost our business, not sure how they are in business.

    Not traditional Mexican food. I had braised short rib tacos. They were delicious, I order with side of beans and rice. Unless you are a big beans and rice fan you can share the side of beans and rice.

    First time at this lovely restaurant. We were celebrating our Grandma's 98th birthday. The staff were very nice and accommodating. When some children showed up they gave them complimentary churros. Much to their delight. The tacos were delicious, the salads yummy, and the margaritas just right.

    Admittedly it was very busy but our special orders were not granted. I am vegan so asked no dairy on the bowl dish and It came with cheese and sour cream. My friend ordered extra jackfruit on her chicken taco- didn’t come. We asked for Diablo hot sauce and the server did not tell us there was an extra fee ($4!!! For a tiny bowl) and we got the bottom of the bag tortilla chips that were broken and tiny pieces we couldn’t really dip . Granted they did give us new chips, brought the extra jackfruit and took the extra sauce off the bill. But we really think servers should tell customers about extra charges. Their Galician non alcohol beer is EXCELENTE! I don’t think we will come back on a busy Friday night.

    We were having a special send off dinner for my daughter and loved every bit of our meal and drinks, the Hermana margarita's are delicious! Our table ordered a variety of things and loved it all. Ceviche, enchiladas, tacos, chili verde all were cooked to perfection. We ran into a bit of a problem when ordering one of our drinks, but the problem was handled swiftly by the waitress, and the bartender came over to personally apologize . Well handled Cocina Hermana! We will definitely be back!
