Very flavorless, low quality food. Both the shrimp and steak fajitas were way over cooked. Cocktails were not very good. The place looks like a divey Mexican restaurant in South Austin, but without the great flavors. With all the great Mex food in LA, there’s no reason to come here.

Very disappointing.

Don’t order the chicken fajitas - not sizzling - not fresh - more like fajitas you would get in first class on a delta flight

Greeted welcomely by the restaurant manager and sat right away. My dear friends were visiting and I wanted a place that had good spacing and tasty food. We were well taken care off, the guacamole and queso were delicious (recommended by manager), margaritas were good and overall experience was memorable. We’ll be back!

We got there 20 mins late & Patrick took the best care of us. He went above & beyond to find a table to seat us at. He had already given away our table since we were late so he really didn’t have to do anything. But he offered us margaritas & ended up finding us a table. Will def be back!

It's a fun spot to grab some drinks with friends in a nice ambiance, but the food is average. Think $10+ guac and a plate of tacos for almost $20. Nonetheless, this is a busy spot and has very hWood group vibes: instagram-heavy crowd, good but $$$ drinks, and a tinge of exclusivity. Our server was attentive and very nice, and the host was pretty chill. It's a fun place to kick back in a COVID-friendly outdoor environment.

The service was terrible, food and drinks were delayed and half items ordered forgotten. My friend had to take her food home because it was brought out literally as we finished up. Manager was not nice and did not take care of anything... it’s not about getting anything for free more the principal of stepping up and being a human and being kind. Food tasted like it was from a fast food place. I was beyond disappointed and will never go again :(

It was a horrible experience.
We had an 8:30 reservation. 9:30 rolled around and we still hadn’t been seated or asked if we wanted drinks or anything.
The food finally came after we had to hunt down a waiter to order and the food was TERRIBLE quality. Overall really sad experience.

Outdoor Covid dining done right. Cute ambiance, clean, great food and actually felt like a bit of a normal dining experience. Service was a tad slow but I think the servers didn’t quite know when to come because there were no menus (QR codes used for less touching). Overall fun date night experience. Will be back.

Not the best experience. We had a 9pm reservation however we didn’t get seated until 9:50. The hosts offered comp drinks to these two wonder girls that were ahead of us but tried to send us to another busy restaurant to get comp drinks from a connection he had there. Not sure why we didn’t receive the same treatment. Food was decent especially for the price.

First, I understand circumstances with Covid have made dining out hard on many restaurants. However we had a reservation for 7:30 but did not get seated till 8. The host was extremely rude which was a turn off but the food was good which made up for it. Seating with a bit close for Covid standard and felt uncomfortable with how they tried to squeeze small parties together. Would I go back? Probably not. Better Mexican food/ margaritas for less $ and better service.

Food was good! Smaller portions for more $$ but that's what this kind of place is. Food was really flavorful. Service weird. A little slow, only 1 server on on a week day night, so she was definitely trying. Just when we got our bill, a lot of the things we ordered from the menu did not match the price on the actual bill. So another weird thing. May come back if in area, but I think first impressions are important, and this was not the best.

The host gave our table to another group. The host laughed it away unprofessionally. After waiting for 40 minutes we got seated we did not receive any menus. The waiter gave us complimentary drinks to apologize, this was later put on our bill. When the shared food arrived, we were not given personal plates, silverware, or water. The staff paid no attention to us whatsoever. They did not tell us that the kitchen was closing so we could not order enough food. Extremely bad service. Then it took 20 more minutes to pay the bill. We went to Petite regularly before but it will take a while before we will be back.

No presence at the door - sat almost 25 minutes past reservation with no acknowledgement from any level of staff member. Water and a greet from a service member took over 10 minutes. Honestly an embarrassment for the owners and entire staff. Manager should be fired for lack of respect towards establishment - completely abandoned his door and the entire space seemed disfunctional and in need of a solid leader / manager.

Will not be back and will not recommend.

Food was great for the price, sizeable portions, & my cocktail was delicious. I had steak nachos & my partner the steak tacos. As for dessert the churro wasn't crunchy at all, more on the soft side. They're a bit understaffed, but very kind people. I really appreciate that the staff speaks Spanish.

The outdoor patio was nice, good amount of room between tables. There was plenty of street parking (only the patio was open so that likely had a bit to do with it). The spicy margarita was out of this world! Maybe the best I’ve had! I had the mushroom taco and taco salad and both were delicious. Overall, my experience was well beyond my expectations and I’m looking forward to going back there soon.

Beautiful resturant stylistically.
Horrible service. I went for a double birthday party. Do NOT host your bday there. We had about 8/9 people with us. We sat down at 8, our drinks didnt arrive for 40 minutes. We had to incessantly check in again and again where our drinks were. Our order wasnt taken for an hour. All of the appetizers came with the food- all of which came out over 2.5 hours after we sat down. Our orders were WRONG! Beans in things that were requested to not have beans. And not even to mention the two birthday orders came out much later. Out waitress had to ask us what we even ordered to put the order in again as if it was missed. We were late for our next event. And not to mention, the manager Micah- was such a disrespectful deceitful person. Micah laughed in out faces when we told him how horrible the service was and asked for our meal to be comped as thats the least he could do. He pointed at us from across the room and laughed at us. How rude? How disrespectful? That’s not how you run a resturant. Terrible resturant. We felt as if we were held hostage. Not even to mention all of the massive party tables with skinny white women, were served immediately with minimal wait. Do not go to this resturant. We were there from 8-11 and lost our entire evening. Complete waste of time and money. Worst birthday ever.

First off the service and the front was excellent. They attended to every need. The tortillas were the best I’ve ever had. That’s where it peaked for me. I have the taco salad that was less than appetizing. The other guests enjoyed their meals but I left mine. You can see anything in the restaurant. And there was an obnoxious table next to us. The scourge of me. I would go back for the tortillas and try something else.
