Arrived on time and checked in, but hostess stated the table was given away and would we wait. We told her no and to give us an open 4 top which she begrudgingly did. Waited 15 minutes for a server and another 15 minutes to get drinks. I hate to bash a small business but this was very poor service for a place that was 3/4 full. No issue with the food, above average Phoenix Mexican. To top it off, a server grabbed our patio heater for another table without asking us !

Creative twist on standard Mexican fare to elevate each dish. The Crepes De Mer were great but I needed to add a little spice to them. The kids menu is a good value & offers healthy options. The customer service, attentiveness of the wait staff and genuine kindness of the manager are what made the dining experience outstanding & will ensure we return! :)

My wife heard about this place on 99.9 from Beth McDonald. We were in the area and went in then sat at the Bar. We had a great meal with unique flavors and great service. Then as we looked over across the bar... Beth McDonald was sitting there with her crew too. How funny but even without the Beth siting we really enjoyed it. Go check it out! You’ll be glad you did!!!

Of 7 of my family who went for dinner last Friday, 2 had nothing good to say about the whole experience. 4 enjoyed the dinner. 1 was so-so. It started out poor for us as we were seated outside by heaters, because there was no room inside and it was cold for most of us. We were moved before inside ordering as some people had canceled. That was very nice and appreciated! It was very noisy inside, tho. Most of my fussy family weren't impressed with the menu. I had been there before with a friend for lunch and enjoyed it very much. I think it is a place I would take someone for lunch rather than dinner.

We chose the queso fun dodo and it was excellent! I got the pollo con espinaca and it was spicy but delicious. I loved it. I didn’t even have room to touch the rice and beans. My husband got the steak tampiquena and that was delicious as well! The plates are a bit pricey but I think it’s worth it :)

I brought visitors in to the restaurant for lunch. They were here for just that day and thought this would be a fun place. We have been to the restaurant before, and had a great experience with the food. However, both my husband and I found that our rellenos, even though they were different, we’re both very bland. Mine was lukewarm at best. Our friends had similar feelings of the tacos and enchiladas. The guacamole was also tasteless unless you happen to get a radish or bit of onion. Because we were on a tight timeframe and it was a bit embarrassing, I did not say anything. I wish I had. Our waitress was good, but I would not write anything pertaining to the food itself highly.

The food here is excellent! And so are the drinks. I must say the last time so went, I was the first customer there when they opened and another couple came in after my party and were served first for some reason. I kept trying to make eye contact with the hostess but she ignored me. Finally after 15 mins, I waved a server over and he took out order. Not sure what was going on that day but other than that, the food and drinks were excellent.

A rainy New Years Eve and happy to have made an early reservation. Very small dining room. Lovely little patio but exposed to elements had it closed. Delicious and festive margaritas at a fair price. A nice spin on Mexican dishes. The classic chili relleno was tasty. Seafood crepe interesting, fishy. Guacamole and chips plentiful and fresh. We took tamales home for the New Year. The server pleasant and efficient. A table side visit by the owners was a nice touch. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming even on a holiday! Definitely want to go back for happy hour on the patio.

First off, I am a tomato based salsa lover, so their salsas where not my favorite. The fruit and green salad was delicious. The street ribeye tacos and the chicken breast with cheese were yummy also. Flan for dessert and it was delicious. A very nice experience.

Everything was great! Beautiful outdoor seating area with plenty of little fire pits to keep you warm in the winter. It took a little longer than usual to get the appetizer, but it was well worth the wait. We got the crab fundido and it was excellent! I got the ribeye tacos and the meat was so tender and delicious, perfect for taco meat. I was really happy with the food!

This place is knocking it out of the park!! Beautiful quiet patio with blazing fire bowls. Greeted by Yolanda who’s served this restaurant for 20 years. She set the stage for a warm sincere wonderful experience. Because you sort of walk through the kitchen, it was super welcoming to be greeted a smile by the hard working kitchen crew. The morale tells you a lot about a place. Pollo con espinaca, camarones, tacos, chips, salsas oh my! We haven’t been here in a couple years. Maybe we just forgot about it. New ownership working hard. Maybe it was this good last time. But this time we won’t forget about it. Was perfect for the four of us to enjoy great food, setting and most importantly each other. Thanks...will definitely be back!

This is the place for intriguing,imaginati e food- but if you don't like cilantro- one of the 18 percent to whom it tastes like soap- you' ll have few choices,because it's the most cilantro loaded menus I've ever seen.

Food was just ok. Indoor dining room rather dirty-looking with musty-smelling air quality. Outdoor dining looked nice. They were able to accommodate gluten and dairy allergies.
