    Been wanting to try this restaurant for a LONG time. First of all, the food was fantastic! Honestly that was the only good part of the evening. We had reservations but had to wait quite a while for our table. Was rather disappointed because there was an open table for 6 ( which we were) downstairs but they refused to seat us there. Instead we had to wait 25 minutes and were taken upstairs. We were placed in a corner and it was FREEZING! ( Really uncomfortable) Drink menu looked good but when my drink came, it was covered with tahini both around the rim and on the fruit in it. The menu did not list this ingredient and I could not drink it. The worst part was that we had to wait over an hour for our dinner to arrive. The waiter kept coming over and saying it would be 10 more minutes. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen because the restaurant did not appear full. The room we were seated in was not only incredibly cold but ridiculously loud. We could barely hold a conversation. By time we finally got our food, it was after 10:00 and I just wanted to go home. Super expensive for the overall experience. Maybe we’ll try again sometime but really not sure. Super disappointed.

    The food was delicious and the cocktails were so tasty. Everything is visually pleasing. Our server, Tracy, was great - attentive but not overbearing, and very knowledgeable about the menu and ingredients. She made great recommendations for the vegetarian at the table, and the few answers she didn’t know off the top of her head, she quickly and pleasantly found out. Wonderful experience, highly recommend.

    The food was excellent and the service very attentive. We have never had so many managers check on us as to whether we were enjoying our dinner. The only complaint was the Men’s restroom was for one guest at a time, which caused a long wait. I believe a restaurant this size should have better restroom accommodations. We still highly recommend this restaurant.

    We were in town for the Kentucky Derby and we loved this place so much the first night we came back the evening after the Derby with more people! It's in a fun part of Louisville, so there is plenty to do before and after when you need to walk off all the amazing food! Everything we ate was insanely good! Standouts...duck flautas, carnitas, tah-ketos, Carne asada! Drinks were also very good!! We came home craving the food....and we live in Austin!!

    Drinks, dinner and dessert were all fantastic! I don’t think you can make a wrong decision when choosing from any of their menu items. We sat out on the rooftop and Ernesto provided great service. Although, if you plan to order the Capirotada for dessert, (which I highly recommend) get a table inside for the best presentation!
