I went to Flores with a group of friends. We had reservations, but had to wait about 15 minutes. They were super busy and it took another 10 minutes for our waiter to come to take our drink orders. Food was good - I had duck enchiladas.

Great food and drinks. Area we sat at had a missing light above which made it extremely dark. Unable to read our menu so we had to request some candles. Couldn’t see our food as we ate but we managed. Service was ok. Waiter forgot a few things and didn’t ask if we wanted desert at the end. Perhaps he was new? Other than the dark area and mediocre service I would probably still recommend this place.

Some friends and I came here for my husband's birthday dinner and it was perfect! The backroom was great for groups, as it was quieter than up front. Food was incredible, and they even included a birthday treat at the end. Loved it and we will be back soon!

Dirty restaurant, bad food. The waitress was good but that’s about it.

Menu was small and strange. It was set up like tapas, but when ordered plates they were very small and really not sharable. We ordered the steak carne for two and there were five small slices of steak that were bland. Overall not worth the prices they were charging

The food service ambiance were A+ unfortunately the lack of insulation on a cold rainy day made it very cold inside. We never got warm. Would. Not return in the winter unless it was a warm day.

This was my third visit and best one yet. We came with international guests, unfamiliar with Mexican food. The server was super helpful in figuring out how much to order for 8 people. The carnitas and carne asada platters were so good - cannot stop thinking about them! It was great to have a make your own meal with a lot of people; it made the meal more fun!

Booked a table for 2 far in advance for a birthday celebration. The host seated us at a table that had clearly been added to the normal floor plan because I had to sit with my back about 4 inches away from the waiting staff stand (where they print receipts etc), and there were no lights over our table, just an electric candle. We asked to be moved and they were only willing to move us to another table if we agreed to leave within an hour. After much discussion we decided to sit at the bar instead. Ordered guacamole and it was cold, clearly had been refrigerated and not worth the price. I would not go back here unless I had to.

My husband and I had a date night here and we couldn’t have been happier. The ambiance of the restaurant was fun and energetic, the food was incredible (I can’t say enough good things about the crab tostadas!) the drinks were strong and delicious and lastly, the service was bar none. This is our new favorite restaurant.

Great place, but unfortunately we only had a couple of cocktails and an app (guacamole) and left. This place is LOUD, so be prepared. After struggling to carry on a conversation, we gave up and asked for our bill. Not only are the patrons loud, but they seemed to have one song playing on and on - sort of like a drum beat sound which made things even louder. The space is beautiful, the staff very friendly and attentive and the app and drinks we had were excellent.

The food is not authentic, it’s eclectic, which is fine, but in this case, it was not tasty. It’s more of a trendy place to be versus a good date night or any night where you want to hear the people with you. It’s right space and dark, which can be fine if it is clean, this was not. I sat on a tomato and there was food stuck to my menu. The bartender also made poor drinks.

Fun vibe. Good food. Good service. The restaurant, when full, is uncomfortably loud. If you are looking to have a real 1:1 conversation with your dining partner, you will find yourselves speaking louder than normal in order to be heard.
