Tamara the waitress was amazing as always! We have her every single time we go, and she’s just amazing! She deserves a raise! The bartender working last night was fantastic, personally came to our table and walked my husband through the flight he ordered . Staff was fantastic! It was the perfect date night!

The drinks were okay. We ordered tacos and felt like something was missing from the flavor. We overall didn't feel like the experience justified the $100 bill for a meal for two.

Atmosphere was very hip and chic. Seems like a great place to grab drinks. Just moving here from SoCal, the tacos were very bland. I’d say overpriced but I’m finding that’s the norm with Alaskan restaurants. But great atmosphere, great aesthetics, great service - just “okay” food.

I had the salmon tacos. They were good, but would have never guessed they had salmon. The only flavor was pineapple. The beans had zero seasoning. The waitress was fantastic!

Our waitress, Sarah was fantastic. Our only comment would be there was too much ice in the drinks for a $12 margarita. For $12 I want a good stuff drink.
That said, food was delicious and overall great evening.

The cocktails were great with a lot of ingenuity put into their creation. The food didn’t live up to that. It wasn’t bad. It was fine, but very middle of the road.

I gave the kitchen two chances to impress me and this was my last disappointed tonight! The drinks are good but the food needs a refresh and more flavor. For the price to serving a customer pays for three tacos, I expect them to be made with boldness! The tacos were bland and not impressing. My table order all different types of food and potatoes with the steak had more flavor than all the tacos combined.

Something has changed with the way food is prepared. Popcorn shrimp app was flavorless and disappointing. Tacos were soggy. The tortilla soup was bland and had little chicken.
The only thing that seemed the same was the guac app. On the plus - server was great (friendly and attentive) but we won’t be going back anything soon. Not the Tequila 61 that wowed us when they first opened.

The food was decent. The guacamole has the gluey texture that it gets when frozen, so it is probably not made fresh daily. The empanadas had good flavor, but were skimpy on filling. The carne asada tacos used fresh ingredients, but were bland. This restaurant is noisy with loud dance music playing constantly. I ran the sound meter on my phone for 10 minutes and recorded and average sound level of 87db. Too loud for dinner with friends, conversation, etc.

First time back in a year and it was just blah…the goat cheese balls were super tasty but our tacos rice and beans were no where near as good as in the past. For the cost the food didn’t match up this time. Will try again to see if it was a fluke w won’t ally have a great food experience.
