Very nice restaurant with amazing staff. They have a beautiful small patio with lots of greens that was perfect for the sunny weather. We tried the salmon, Chile relleno along with guacamole and tacos and we enjoyed all of it. Everything was great and the drinks were great too.

The foods and drinks were great. The open door on a cold day was the only negative. Service was excellent.

Had a great time with the family. Food was good although portions are a little smaller than your regular Mexican place. Great margaritas and the staff is super nice too. We felt very welcomed from start to finish. Manager stopped by to say hi and check on us as well. Will visit again!!!

To start of we had ceviche and guacamole (the amount served looked like tapas), the shrimp ceviche was good but their menu stated that they had a market ceviche which was the main reason I picked the restaurant. They stated that due to Covid they removed certain items from the menu, I understand that but you should have updated the website. For my meal I ordered the Mahi Mahi tacos (they looked like fish fillets that I can get in the frozen section of my local grocery market) I would say that the portion were small (more like mini tacos) the tacos were also bland. They had two sauces that they provided with the chips that I had to use on my tacos to add some flavor to the them. My friends ordered the seafood quesadilla, burritos and tamales that again they stated it was flavorless and very bland. Our waiter was friendly and very accommodating to our needs. The ambiance was quite for a Saturday night.

Man. The food is bomb. The drinks on tilt. Always one of our favorites. When it’s open we go once a week. The lobster guacamole doesn’t have much lobster these days but we are just glad they are open. Take a date. Take a mate. Take a homie. You will not be disappointed!
