The booths are very small. I’m a plus size woman and had to request a chair to sit at the end because no one else would fit. This is the first time it’s happened at any restaurant and I have been the same size for a few years.

Also, the restaurant was super crowded considering LA county has capacity restrictions due to Covid.

A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!
They allowed us to make a reservation at 9:30pm but as soon as we were seated (around 9:45) the waiter rushed us to order after looking at menu for 5 minutes because the kitchen was closing at 10pm. The menu is practically in Spanish and our waiter did not attempt to explain what certain items were. The drinks were extremely strong (ordered 2 different drinks) both horrible. When the food finally came out our plates were all switched up (as I stated we couldn’t really read the menu) so we swamped plates best to our knowledge of what we ordered because our waiter was Mia. Our waiter literally walked by us multiple times when trying to get his attention, he did not check on us at all. Unfortunately we had to get two plates re cooked due to that and the waiter had an attitude because the kitchen was pretty much closed. The food was very delicious but the presentation was unacceptable. I asked for a manger when paying the check, no one came back to our table after waiting almost 25 minutes we just left. I am highly disappointed because I waited a month for this reservation. Horrible customer service.

Entry way at the check in area was tight. You couldn’t exit and had no chance but to get close to the other party checking in.

Asked the server how spicy the dish was and he asked if I wanted spicy and I said a little yet my dish came with no spice. My fault for trying to alter the dish.


Great ambiance and great menu options!

food was amaaaazing! however it was a party of 2 and we asked got sat in a small table on the side ... we knew we were going to order A LOT of different plates .. and asked to be moved to a bigger table .. we were told no because all other tables were reserved for bigger parties.. which is understandable .. however we saw PLENTY of bigger tables that had ONLY 2 people. got quite a bit is sass from the lady who we asked to move us . it was uncomfortable having no room for our dishes. we are nurses and we’re in our scrubs. and one of the workers already made us feel uncomfortable because we accidentally bumped into them as other people were passing and right away they took out their sanitizer ... i get it we are nurses. but we weren’t dirty. and us being sat on a side table and not being able to move to something bigger .. we felt uncomfortable.. again food was amazing. howe ever we won’t return.

Pretty alright place, but we aren't rushing back after the dinner we had. Everything on the menu is super spicy, after our first 2 courses I really couldn't taste much of the food with my mouth on fire. The margaritas I ordered was extremely spicy although it was suppose to be a Pina Margarita and the menu didn't say it was spicy. The drink was also way way too strong to drink. It tasted like I was drinking straight lighter fluid. The tequila was either very low quality or the drink was made incorrectly.
Not the best experience, we left very disappointed. The staff was really nice though!

Dining experience was wonderful! This was my first time dining out since the Pandemic started and the experience was great. The waitress was very attentive and made menu and drink suggestions. All of the staff participated in wearing the proper PPE. Signs were posted to remind patrons to wear ppe when not eating or drinking. The food and drinks came out in a timely manner. They food and drinks were excellent and the ambience was beautiful. Date night was a success. Most definitely will recommend and return.

Margaritas were great! The food isn't bad, but a little overpriced for what it is. The outdoor area where you check in is crazy crowded and felt unsafe. Our hostess allowed us to choose between a few tables in the back of the restaurant away from most people, which was nice. It's just way too crowded at the front of the restaurant and on that front patio area - which made us feel very uncomfortable (so much so that we almost left). I appreciate that all menus are done via scan of QR code so that you don't have to touch any menus. Our waiters were great although we did notice one waiter grabbing straws and putting them in drinks without gloves on. I don't think we will come back for a bit just because it seemed a bit too crowded for our comfortability.

Pretty good overall, however the food is average at best. The guacamole is very blend. Dispute that, the enchiladas were actually very good and I mostly enjoyed the ambiance. The atmosphere is very nice and I would definitely be returning again.
