Overall, pretentious and overpriced. They can probably get away with it because of the location.

Great authentic Mexican food. We got their medium hot salsa and it was wonderful. The guacamole was out of this world. Lots of cilantro. I also ate the crispy shrimp taco and the fish taco. So good.

Everything great till it got crowded. Can’t hear yourself think which I know a lot of people like. Not me. Otherwise, different and good.

If one wants salsa with the chips which are provided at no cost a tiny dish is offered at $3. It can't be more than two or three ounces. If you need more it's another $3. Or you can get three for $8. That really cheapened the restaurant.
The ceviche was very tasty but the fish needed a bit more time to cook in the lime juice. The shrimp tacos were also good

Not a single bad thing to say about this place! Everyone there is very knowledgeable about the food and drink menus. The food and drinks were impeccable. They made my birthday dinner one to remember for sure! Can’t wait to go back.
