Food came cold so they took it back and heated it. Great flavor. REALLY nice staff. Place can be quite loud (one night there was a yapping dog, another there were five adults aged 30-50 behaving badly at the bar, staff should have sent them on their way...drinking games, Really shrieking laughing and howling, sudden outbursts that totally startled myself and others. But, again, the staff are ALL really nice.

The owner must be really cheap because they were so short staffed/ the people working were awesome but there was no way just a handful could serve an entire restaurant. There was a long wait fir a table and they did not honor anyones open table reservation.

Terribly mismanaged. Half the food and drinks didn’t arrive. Enchiladas came swimming in the sauce. We told the staff we are not paying for this meal.

This was truly a nightmare... after making a reservation and waiting for over 15 minutes no one even greeted us ...while we were trying to be seated multiple diners complained for not having received their food having been seated or even gotten drinks...

I appreciate the challenges of the pandemic but if you’re going accept except reservations and serve customers but not be able to give them service whatsoever there’s some thing missing in the quotation... bitterly disappointed in what was an awful experience

One of our servers was very pleasant, but they got our order wrong and the margaritas were shockingly sweet. :/ Nachos were tasty, though, and the outside dining pace was cool.

We stayed about a block from the restaurant so it was easy to find. The tacos were delicious! Small but very tasty !

I would recommend and would return.

The smell from the restroom floats through the restaurant a bit, but otherwise it’s great!

A special treat. As we had not eaten here before, we had no previous experience. We were so surprised at the quality of the food, can’t wait to come back. The hibiscus margarita was the bomb

We found this place from Dine About Town in San Francisco. The restaurant indoors was open and we were the only ones in there. Majority of all patrons wanted to sit outside. The food was prepared wonderfully and the service was excellent. The variety of sauces for our chips was delicious. The enchiladas was very filling but I made room for dessert. I would come back again to try the other dishes.
