    We really enjoyed the ambience of this place and the service was fantastic. Drinks were pretty good! The food, however, was a bit on the disappointing side. The chile relleno was bland and mushy, guac trio was just OK (the plaintain chips were amazing, though), the short rib taquitos were also just OK. The shrimp taquitos were SO good, and I would order that again. The tortillas that come out with the butter and 2 salsas are also really good, but overall if only 2 dishes out of the 5 were the only good ones and the other 2 were "meh" or subpar, the $150 tab isn't worth it (and one of those dishes, the tortillas, was free!). I think if a friend wanted to go to a place with nice drinks and a small app, I would recommend this place. But I wouldn't recommend this place for their actual entrees.

    Great place, atmosphere & decor is super nice, tasty food, portions - especially appetizers & tacos are very small. Margaritas are great. I would come back but I would suggest to increase portion size. Tacos are delicious but $33 for very tiny lobster tacos is a bit high. Planning to come back to try other things from the menu. Thank you!
