    Me and my girlfriend made reservations for 8:15. We both arrived at 8:10 and got seated. We are sitting there looking dumb for 40 minutes. No one asked if we wanted a drink or food. The waitress and bartenders talking and laughing while service is being ignored. I’ll never come here again

    Great cocktails! Service is excellent. Food came out very quickly and tasty. Servers know the menu well and can make recommendations. I got the happy hour mussels which were tangy, hint of spicy, and very delicious.

    Amazing experience! We had to make last minute plans and change restaurants. I’m so happy we did. The food is amazing (fish tacos are the best tacos imo), our server was awesome, the music level and selection was perfect, drinks were reasonably priced and amazingly made, and the decor was beautiful! I’ll definitely be back.

    Delicious dinner. Aguachili, queso, guac, and elotes apps all delicious. Wonderful birria tacos. Creative and yummy cocktails. Attentive service. Only complaint would be the sound level. Club like volume, tough to chat amongst our party.

    I understand the 90 minute rule, however we were rushed out 10 minutes before our time was up. Our waiter could have been kinder when relaying the message. Food was good, drink was too sweet, felt extremely rushed.

    I came here with a group of four. I asked to be seated outside or by the window. I was told only large groups can sit by the window. Shortly afterwards a couple was sat by the window with plenty of other open tables. A table that was meant for four people Like I had in my group. It wasn’t even busy at that hour of the day. The hostess was Hispanic and so was the couple. My group was not Hispanic. I feel this was a clear case of discrimination and so did my group. I do not foresee us coming back here in the future.
