It felt like being invited into a Mexican grandmother’s kitchen. A truly intimate experience that’s unlike any other “restaurant” we’ve been to. The food is amazing, but it’s the ambience and cultural lessons that make you feel as if you did more than just dine.

When we moved to the back room, it was like being transformed to another world. Outstanding food prepared in front of you. Would go back next visit - so much good food. Wine list OK

One of the best dinners I've ever had in my life!! The food was absolutely amazing, and the service was perfect. It's definitely a little pricey, so I certainly won't be able to afford to go as much as I would like, but it is absolutely worth it for a special occasion! Highly, highly recommend.

There was way too much food! Portions should be reduced by 2/3 for 8 courses. As good as it was I felt I paid to feel uncomfortably full. The ambiance is nice and intimate but for the price you are paying needs to be more attention to detail.

Wow, wow, wow! The details, beauty and taste of the food were incredible. It was a lot of fun to watch the chef and his mother at work with their food. The service was impeccable. The only thing I might suggest to make the experience more fabulous is to not serve the courses so close to each other. There are eight courses and little time to rest between them.

Incredible culinary experience. Humble, down to earth approach to modern luxury cooking. The chef and his family create some of the best food i've had anywhere, and it just happens to be in the back room of a taco joint (which is also really, really good).

Well worth the cost for a special dinner or celebration. In line with "Chef's table" on Netflix.

Amazing food and flavor combinations. Portions could be a little smaller, because when it tastes this good it’s hard to exercise self control. Over 8 courses, if you can get ridiculously full. But the overall food flavors and dining experience are second to none.

This was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. We went for my wife's birthday. She loves Mexican food. Me, not so much. Well I loved every one of the 8 courses. The food, the presentation, the ambiance, everything was 5 star in my opinion.

Great experience! The intimacy of the dining room really makes for great theater. The chef does a great job plating and presenting the food providing a little backstory for each dish at the beginning of each course. The server team is very attentive and engaging. I thought the plates would be small but they really give you a healthy serving of each course. If I had to improve anything it would be the air conditioning but it's summer in Texas so I can't really fault the team. Worth every penny!

If you have food allergies, I absolutely would not recommend this restaurant. I listed my allergy in my reservation (gluten – celiac) and the host called me the day of our meal and assured me that "everything back there is always gluten free." Then when the dessert came out and it was a LITERAL PIECE OF CAKE, I thought something might be up. Sheesh. At that price and level of fine dining you would think the guy could at least talk to his chef before telling me the menu would be gluten free. Luckily I didn't eat the cake but I had already eaten the other courses that, based on my body's reaction for the next 24 hours, definitely had gluten in it. I called the next day to let them know and the same host insisted I was mistaken and barely apologized. Such a bummer – the atmosphere is so charming, the meal really was delicious, and I want this place to succeed. This is such a cool spot! Unfortunately they really shouldn't hire people who can't do something as simple as check the menu for allergen concerns, especially at $120 per plate before drink costs! Me and my husband coulda flown to ACTUAL Mexico and back for the price of our final bill and probably not gotten as sick as I did lol. I just can't recommend it based on my experience.

This restaurant is an interesting situation. Nothing here is awesome and nothing is terrible. The only negative I have is that the price point is a bit high but the amount of food is also more than average. I think the staff needs more experience, and the wine list needs to improve. The room temperature was a bit too hot, and trying to cool it down with a portable unit is not the right choice. Another comment I have is that they have two seatings, with a tight schedule. If you will delay the first seating, you can't rush the people out because you have the second seating waiting. At the end of the meal, I wanted to have a digistif and coffee, and they boldy told me "no" because they had to seat the second group. Based on the overall experience, and the price, I can't recommend this place

Love the atmosphere and the food — grandmother's kitchen and food if your grandmother were from Michoacan!! Taking traditional food to a new level. Expensive but worth it for the experience and food. Have been here before and somewhat different every time but always great.

This was a unique dining experience that I'm so happy I got to experience with my wife and friends. My wife made a remark toward the end of the meal that she was bummed to leave and be back in Dallas because it felt like we were in Mexico. I wanted to hug Abuela on our way out, but thought that would be inappropriate. Most dishes are things you can't get anywhere else in DFW if not all of Texas. The pheasant with Mole was my favorite, but it's difficult to choose a favorite. My wife loved the carnitas. I can't say enough about this experience. My only down side was that it was really warm in the room, but you're literally in the kitchen with them cooking, so it's hard to complain about that much. I highly recommend a meal here. My wife, friends and I will be talking about this meal for a long time.

Didn’t actually get to eat the food because of an emergency cancellation (quite literally in the emergency room) but was still charged $120 due to the ridiculous cancellation policy. This is why Dallas can’t have nice things. Needless to say I won’t be coming back...

I wanted to like this place more but left a bit underwhelmed. The idea of the place is great, great chef, mamas cooking, prix fixe, limited seating, hidden away chef's table style experience. However, the service was fair and inexperienced ( niece and cute, at times annoying) , the chef never made eye contact with anyone in the room, no table visit, nothing. Mama was sweet after we approached her after watching her on her feet doing much of the plating. And the recommended, "oh we forget to chill it", warm white wine was overpriced. Overall, after one ( did I mention warm) bottle of wine and generous tip, $450+ for 3 people. If the aforementioned idea was executed it would have been worth it.

The service, ambiance, and food were excellent. The price point is a bit high, but not alarmingly so. I think the owners/chef should contemplate a drink pairing option as well, which I think many customers would appreciate.

The food, atmosphere and service were very nice. I thought for a meal that cost almost 400 for for three people (only two drinks) the experience should last more than 60 minutes. Too rushed.
