The noise level was a little too high in the middle of the room, but we asked to move to a table at the edge and it was much better. Food quality was just excellent: fresh, tasty, right level of spicing. Standouts were the shrimp main and the tuna ceviche.

Wonderful food, very popular, but also very crowded and VERY LOUD!!! so if you want a lively night out, great place-- but a quiet date, not so much. But we had a great dinner.

Waitress was pleasant. None of our food was hot and all tasted the same. They were out of almost ever non alcoholic drink on the menu. Beautiful restaurant however, won’t be returning.
