Accommodating and fun for a bday! We loved the complimentary churro cart and our server also assisted with a cake we brought. The $350 minimum for parties of 10 or more is rough and dissuaded us from having more in our party. Nonetheless, it was a great time and love that they are dog friendly too.

I noted on the reservation that there were two gluten free diners, their menu advertises many gluten free options, the server acknowledged the dietary restrictions, but then informed us, after we ordered drinks, that there are only 2 really gluten free options: salad or ceviche. I paid $38 for a side of rice and beans and a margarita flight that was way too sweet.

A bit underwhelming given the strong reviews on Yelp and Google. It’s more of a louder type of restaurant and better for groups and when you all want to drink margaritas or margarita flights. But if you’re primarily looking for solid Mexican food, go elsewhere. Food was overpriced for the quality you get.

Beautiful place! Staff is wonderful. We had reservations for 7pm, but got seated after 8pm due to the high volume of customers. I didnt mind- without reservations, the wait was 2 hrs at minimum. It's to be expected since it's new and so different from what's already around Little Italy. Great variation of food and drinks. Our waitress was superb in attention considering how busy they were. Site manager was wonderful in helping staff out in problem solving and serving. I would definitely come back. Just keep in mind that there may be a wait with reservations.

It is a fun loud energetic place. Tortillas could be better but overall food was good. My husband and I shared a parrillada. Drinks were delicious, I had a Tamarindo margarita, yummy!

The food was good, nothing spectacular and nothing bad. It was very loud on a Saturday afternoon, so be prepared to yell at your neighbor. I guess that’s good since it is a new place, showing how popular the place was.

Absolutely horrible. Food was brought out freezing cold. Music was way too loud. Couldn’t pay fast enough to get out of there. Will not be returning.
