Front staff was a bit junior in not welcoming us or others as we walked up, however the overall dining experience and everything else was great. Would recommend

The food its very good, we had the Enchiladas Crab Suizas, The Tacos Baja,and the Enchiladas combo, all of them were exquisite. We have some cocktails , but the Ginger Margarita was the best, our sever was very prompt and attentive .For a good birthday dinner was great.

Wow both the food and drinks were amazing. I was very pleasantly surprised on how great this place was!
I ordered the Blanco Mole enchiladas and my wife ordered the tacos. Both dishes were perfect and full of taste! Almost forgot, the warm homemade tortillas to start are served with salsa (two kinds) and honey butter. I had to really push myself to stop eating them...soooooo good!
You can't go wrong here...highly recommend!

The restaurant interior is very nice and our server made some great recommendations. They have a vegan section which is awesome and something I’ll come back for. The only negative was the bathroom - really tight - and the service waned a little after we ordered our dinner - additional tortillas never arrived, one item was forgotten altogether, and drink refills were a bit slow.

Arrived after a long flight and a very long car rental delay.
The food was great and the restaurant is lively. Wish we weren’t so tired from travel to enjoy it more! Cute tables outside with fire pits in the center. Will def go back when we visit out friends again in Hermosa Beach!

We really enjoyed our dinner. We absolutely loved our food. The only problem with this place was the seating - just a little tight for us and it was a little noisy which made it difficult to have a conversation with our friends sitting across from us. We'll be back anyway, the food was great and so was our service.

Very unpleasant experience all around. Over-rated, mediocre dishes and lack of attention from hurried waiters.
Christmas dinner with family a big letdown. Should have lowered our expectations.

Annual girls in the neighborhood Christmas dinner.... loved it. The table was outside, which is a bit quieter than inside. The patio cover and heaters made it perfect. The margarita selection is awesome. The food is yummy and the price is good.

Great space and good price for what you get. My table wasn’t ready when I arrived and the people at the table I was supposed to have were allowed to order another round of drinks when we were there waiting for the table. Had to follow up with staff a few times to get them to leave and was waiting about 20 minutes total.

We chose this restaurant b/c we had a vegan in our party and they offer vegan options. All our meals were fantastic, and our vegan loved the vegan enchiladas. I’m not vegan but ordered the vegan tacos and they were also amazing! Our server Eric was awesome and made perfect recommendations ... and don’t even get me started on the fab margaritas!! We will be back often.

Made a brunch reservation and when I arrived power was out at all businesses in the area, but the staff was super kind and accomomodated my party with chips and drinks. Luckily power came back after about 30 minutes and the amazing service continued. GREAT BRUNCH menu and the food was perfect. Highly recommend.
