This is a neighborhood gem, but it is not consistently awesome. The food has been consistent. There are a couple of great waitstaff and some that just seem as if they are there doing time. The guacamole portion has shrunk greatly but still really good - the best I've ever had in a restaurant

First off, they don't really use Open Table and the workers know nothing about it. But our waiter asked a manager who got my info and said he'd get me my reward points. This is the second restaurant in 3 days that had no clue about Open Table reservations.

As for the food and drinks, they were just ok, but VERY overpriced. If I didn't have a Groupon, I would be a little disappointed. I would go back, but only with a Groupon or for their happy hour specials.

The food was fantastic, but the service was disappointing. The sweet hostess was a bright spot in the service staff.

Our service was terrible. I’m pretty sure our waitress quit half way through our shift. I felt bad for the other servers trying to make up for her lost tables

Good food and friendly staff. My only complaint is the music is a little too loud if you are sitting inside. We were seated inside for the first 10 minutes, but we decided to sit outside when the food came. It was so much better not listening to the high volume. The music was good, burmt the volume was too loud. Cant hear the lerson right next to you. The music was so loud i had trouble hearing the person i came to dinner with and she was like 1 foot away. I think they make the music loud for the street crowd because the resturant is in the international market place with loads of tourists.
