We had family from Richmond, VA visiting for Thanksgiving. We like Mas Amor so we made reservations for dinner, online. Under special request I asked for a table in a quiet area if the restaurant. They have a perfect area in the back past the kitchen. Cozy and quiet where we could enjoy our dinner and have conversation with out having to talk so loud. It was perfect as was the food. Our server was fabulous, polite and courteous in every way. Awesome experience. So glad we live near by.

I have a few times to eat here and this is the first time I didn't rate it 4 stars. They had a shortage of staff and there was only 1 person at the front desk. There were approximately 10 people in line trying to confirm reservations and/or walk in for a table. It took about 15 minutes to be attended to and show to a table despite having a reservation.
Food and drinks are great but I do feel slightly overpriced.
Thing I love about this place is how loud and energetic and vibrant it is.
Staff have always been very polite, curious and attentive here.

It was my first time there and it was for a birthday. It was way too loud to have any real conversation. My strawberry jalapeno margarita tasted like pure sour mix and was undrinkable (I didn't say anything, though). Even though we had a reservation we had to wait but that's understandable. The food and service was excellent.

Great place. Very modern and open. Fresh fare. Good service. Our waitstaff seemed to have mildly rushed us - we had a 5:45 reservation and we were asked about dessert before we finished our entree. Regardless, our server was very nice and accommodating.
Only negative I would point out is that a wine pour should be six ounces and not four. Big disappointment. I’ll get a beer next time.

Excellent meal, good food choices, beautiful flavor blends. Service was good, a little slow, but I am sure they are short staffed as everyone is. Nice location, good outdoor area as well.

we loved the menu variety, both food and drink, and the service was excellent and food pretty good - except... we ordered the deluxe fajitas for two, but it was served with only three small tortillas, three shrimp and had very very few veggies on the platter - less than one serving's worth - for example two rings of bell pepper, one tiny slice each of squash and zucchini - really weird to have odd numbers of items for two people, and basically a single serving of everything, or even less

Good food and service, would t say outstanding but for the price you pay, it needs to be elevated a bit more then it was. Vegetables were under cooked and beans were served lukewarm and cold. Other then that, it was overall a good place to spend and evening.

I ordered the Fish tacos which came out cold, very little fish(mostly crust)with corn tortillas that were cold and old. The tacos were supposed to have tropical salsa and cilantro but instead had a large dollop of cold guacamole. The guacamole was tasty but overwhelmed the mild fish so basically what little fish I had in each taco could not be tasted. Even the Charro Beans that came as a side dish were cold. The best part of my meal was the Fire Roasted Corn appetizer and the first Paloma. My second Paloma was watered down. My husband had the Picadillo Enchilada which was average….nothing special. Our reservation was at 5:15pm so early enough that there was plenty of wait staff which was very attentive to our table and few tables occupied so staffing/labor wasn’t the cause of the less than average food. I’ve dined there twice before and ordered the grilled entrees which were good so I’d suggest staying with that. I give 2 stars to this dining experience.

I’ve been trying hard to like this place (it is beautiful, don’t get me wrong!) but this is my third visit and it is another failure. Food is just OK… seafood is not fresh, never has been. Overcooked food, need more flavor. And they URGENTLY need to hire a good bartender, OMG! I ordered 3 different drinks and all of them were wrongly prepared!! And… they were out of Grey Goose (I know right?)
I feel like it is such a waste of place… it is very beautiful inside and the Patio is gorgeous; but food quality and drinks are not what you can expect from a place like this. It is very sad!!

Absolutely delicious food. I am glad we had a reservation and could be seated right away. The atmosphere is so pleasant and the decor is beautiful. The food is some of the best I’ve ever had. We had birria tacos, chicken and steak fajitas, elote for appetizer, and churros for dessert. My fiancé also got a mangonada which was satisfying. The chip and salsas they provide are amazing as well. I enjoyed all three salsas, from the avocado, medium, to the hot habanero. All were so flavorful. I wish I could’ve taken a jar of the medium salsa home. We will definitely be back.

Nice, hip, festive restaurant with excellent quality food.
Our server was attentive and had the music turned down so my dining companion and I could enjoy our conversation.
We were there early and it was not crowded so there wasn’t a need for the music to be loud. Also we had reservations and asked to sit outside, which was no problem at all. Enjoyed our meal. Can’t say enough good things and will be going back soon!!!

Venue is very nice, and food was good. The only complaint would be the live music, which was too loud, for the small number of patrons, which made small talk difficult.

Our food was not good/right. I ordered a basic acp. When it came out it didn’t look like it normally did. When I tried it it definitely tasted wrong. I asked the server if they changed it. She asked and they didn’t have all the ingredients to make it so they had to substitute. I didn’t eat more than 3 bites. But still had to pay for it which is fine next time tell us before ordering and wasting our time.
