    Not a real restaurant that should be taking reservations. Order at the counter, grab an open table. Why take reservations? Fish tacos were fine, beans lacked flavor. Wine-based cocktails were not good. Overall expensive for what it is.

    Overall, food was pretty good. We asked for pie to be heated (twice) got confirmation that it was heated, and ate cold pie. Bummer.

    Interesting little venue. They make it work with decent food and good staff. It is probably a nice little hang out spot during the summer. It is an outdoorsy place. It would be nicer I think once they can serve spirits, not just wine and beer. Bourbon by the fire pit would be nice, in my opinion. They are working on it. Stupid CA hoops they have to jump through.

    Food is mediocre and overpriced. You order at the front counter and it’s bought to you, which surprised me at the price point. The taco salad was fresh and light (I had it with steak as recommended, which was the best thing I had that night). Guacamole trio was good. Fish tacos are only 2 in an order, not 3. Queso was served burnt (in flavor, not appearance) and was very thin. Turns out it was over reduced. They made us a new one without even checking in or asking if we would prefer something else. The new one was fine. It didn’t taste like the bottom of a pan and was thicker, but not special or worth returning for. Loved the hotel but will not dine here on any future stays.

    Our entire experience was top notch! All the employees were so friendly and always remembered who we were and always had a big smile. The food was absolutely delicious and we ate one meal there everyday. The mineral pools were clean and was a perfect ending to each day. We hope to take advantage of the spa on our next visit. I highly recommend this property for a nice relaxing getaway.

    Queso was GREAT, fish tacos GREAT, pork flat enchiladas GREAT, blackened steak OK. Service was ok, server mixed up the two flat enchilada plates and spent a few minutes blaming everyone else in the restaurant for the mistake, which was no big deal to us, but unfortunate for him to not take responsibility for a small mix up and spend so much time casting blame elsewhere. Wine based cocktails not so great, but a yummy wine by the glass selection available.

    This pandemic has wreaked havoc on everything and the service industry is not impervious. This is a really cute concept space. We thought there would be pizza/ flat bread, but then we noticed the pizza oven was not lit. We ordered a trio of gauc dips and the enchilada. We tried to order the queso app. but we were informed they 86'd it (it was 6:30 pm and the menu is quite small) The food that we could order was good. The stand out being the enchilada with the Carne adovada and black beans was excellent. The guacamole trio was fresh, but the primary difference in flavor profiles was only modified with a spice mix placed on top. After the first couple of bites, the two of 3 dips were the same. The server was very sweet and apologetic about the menu items. The atmosphere was fun and lively. I would come back and give it another try.

    I was so impressed with the food and teas we tried! Will definitely come back if we’re ever in the area again.
