    RUN...DON'T WALK! I made my reservations via OpenTable and had to put a credit card down to secure my reservation. You cannot self-park, $12.00 valet parking is REQUIRED (bring cash). We were informed by the hostess that the max stay was 2 hours...NEVER heard that one before. The music playing above is LOUD and made it difficult to hold a conversation. After 15 minutes waiting at the table (there were only 2 tables that had other guests), I went to the bar tender and said we would like to order drinks and an appetizer. Another 5 minutes passed until we were FINALLY greeted by a server. We ordered the Guacamole for $16.00. We finished the 6 tostada sized shells they provide as chips and had 1/2 the guacamole left. We just sat there waiting. My patience had come to an end, when the server finally showed up I payed the bill and left. I took my family to another restaurant down the street for dinner. Please review the menu, it's way OVERPRICED for Mexican Food. I would recommend Richardson's over this poor excuse of a restaurant.

    I am really disappointed with this place. I booked a reservation for 10 for a birthday party and they seated us behind a wall where we couldn’t even be a part of the whole experience. The reason we even decided on this place was for the experience. They over charged us on drinks. Double check your receipt! They also automatically charge 20% and then trick you into adding more of a tip when they swipe your card. The place was not crowded for a Friday night but it took a friend of mine a long time to get her food. The waitress said it would be out in 3 minutes but she came back 25 minutes later with the food. The food was pretty good but they have some shady businesses practices. We will not be going back.

    We have been at this restaurant many times. This was the worst service we have experienced from almost any restaurant in years. You should be embarrassed to have a group of 16 not be able to get drinks or water. Very unprofessional serving the food. Overall rating terrible.

    As soon as we pulled in to the restaurant, we were guided to use valet! Surprisingly, valet cost $12.00! We parked ourselves! Next we walked in to the restaurant and the music was loud! Asked if we could sit at the bar for a drink first and the host said we would be seated soon so basically too much of a hassle to sit at the bar and need to close out so quickly! Finally seated and the strobe lights and loud pulsating music made it impossible to stay! We left without eating or drinking!

    Music was too loud. I couldn't have any kind of conversation without raising my voice, and you have to valet park for $12.00. The food was good but overpriced. Staff was friendly but slow even at 5:30.

    The service is amazing, great staff and amazing environment. Drinks were great. Food is expensive - taste good but not great, recommend not paying for the more expensive items in menu. I ordered a very pricey steak , this steak was not better than a steak I can prepare myself at home. I would go back for the environment , service and drinks. Food was nothing special.

    Our server was super nice however most of the other staff was rude the place didn’t look busy however we waited for over 45 min for our drink hours for our food and when the food came it was cold we never got our apple with Tajín. None but 1x water refill. Server never asked if we wanted to order more drinks we had to ask him. Waited again nearly an hour for those drinks he forgot mine and when finally someone else asked him about it he said it was retaking a long time because the coconut had to be made… my drink did not contain any coconut of any sort… 1we chose to celebrate at this place for the fun and ambiance we had come to expect and it fell really short.

    Here is my experience. The vibe was 🔥 as we were seated in the booth, the table was wiped down but had dry food stuck in the table. Our waitress was really nice and helped us pick out drinks/food since it was our very first experience here (recommend by a friend) My only complaint was he food was cold other then that we had a great time/experience. Would i come back? Most definitely.

    Fantastic, Amazing, Amazing! I think it's the best restaurant in Arizona. Food Quality was a 10/10 The ambiance was a 10/10 Service was a 10/10 The event against my favorite steakhouse in town; food was in par and bar none, and the best ambiance restaurant I've ever visited in Arizona! We are planning a return for our family for our son's 14th birthday and are booking a fun night out with some friends without kids! A must-go!

    The restaurant was beautiful. Had a lot of great photo props inside and out. We went on a Saturday night at 7:45pm. When we got there half the restaurant was almost empty. Our group of 6 was initially seated on the empty side away from the action. We sat for nearly 20 minutes without a done coming to our table. I finally went to host say d and asked to be moved. Our server was lacking service on almost every level. She seemed disinterested in her job. A couple people asked for water and didn’t clarify tap or bottle apparently. We received bottles for the entire table. She seemed very irritated when we requested tap water. We had dined one other time when it was first opened, and I wanted to give it a second chance. It’s unfortunate that their customer service isn’t at a higher level. The restaurant has so much potential to be amazing!

    When we drove up to the valet I asked about parking myself. I was told that is not an option and it would be $15. I said ok. When we went inside the manager did say the valet was wrong and should have told us where to park. She took care of the parking change. Really appreciated that. There are two sections to the restaurant. We were put in the back section. There was Milne else there but staff. It appeared that they would put the “hip crowd” in the front and others in the back. The strobe lights were a bit annoying but it was what it was. The appetizer we ordered was guacamole. It tasted like it was out of a can. Did not taste fresh made. They serve it with pork rinds. Not very good. The enchiladas that we ordered were very good.

    I was surprised we had to valet for $15. I made a reservation for 7, but got there at 6:30 so we asked if we should wait at the bar. The hostess told us it was dead and we could be seated right away. The restaurant has very cool decor. They are definitely trying to attract a young crowd. I could imagine on a busy night it would be a lot of fun. They closed all but one section so the bright lights were literally on in the closed sections. It really ruined the ambiance. Our server was excellent. Very knowledgeable and helpful as it was our first time. We enjoyed great drinks and the food was excellent. We were glad we went so we can check that box.

    Nice layout but felt like you were in a nightclub that was trying to do dining as well. Music was very loud and the strobe lights were overboard. Had headache by the time we left. Food options had a variety but everything was served cold and several of our dishes were over cooked but at same time some were undercooked. Way overpriced for quality and quantity you actually received. Obviously trying to make up for the electricity costs for lights and music….Staff was dressed up for Halloween so that was a nice touch. Bottom line is if you want to charge Flemings prices you need to match Fleming quality. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    The good: octopus, ambient, food overall, service. The bad: the most useless Valet Parking ever. Honestly it looks like a scam. Paying $15 to park your car just a few meters/feet/milimeters from the main entrance looks like a subtle heist.

    The food and ambience was very good and energetic. We had a good time with our family for a birthday celebration. Our server was wonderful. However, it was on a weekday. We happen to go on a Wednesday and we’re basically forced to valet there was a total of five tables and the parking lot was empty so each guest basically had to pay $15 for parking. There was no other option. It makes sense for weekends but not for a weekday and at the end of the night we tried, capturing a picture moment in the back where the pool is located, and a gentleman that works at Mom up or the office came out open the door and just stood there and stared at us the entire time we were just trying to take pictures and said he was just monitoring us. It was a very irritating to say the least. Luckily, towards the end, we just asked him to take photos of us, but it was still very rude at first, because he didn’t say his motive as to why he was just standing and staring at us. Other than that, it’s a pretty cool restaurant.

    I mean it’s a cool place. But it’s definitely a party ambiance. There are disco lights and a DJ blaring music and the damn lights are constantly flashing in your eyes. I think it would be a fun place to go when you’re in a party mentality (bachelor/ette pre-game dinner kind of thing) but not a place I’d choose to go on a date night again. The food was fantastic and the spectacle was fun to watch but my wife and I have 3 kids… when we go out to dinner away from the kids, we want to talk and relax. It’s not meant to be that kind of experience. Neat place but make sure the occasion matches the vibe.
