    Very noisy. Service was lacking, took probably 20 minutes for us to get our check after we were clearly ready to go. With that being said, food and ambiance were fantastic. A shame they were out of the two meals I wanted tho…

    Huge drink menu and small food selections - but what we had was really good and our waitress said they were getting ready to expand the menu again. Was a fun place to meet for a drink and food before an event - was a little loud to sit and have a conversation, but not so much that we had to yell.

    Drinks were strong with a great weekday special. Experience both food coming out on time - hot and awesome and also late with slightly warmed fries. Not happy with the service I was provided especially as a person of color. The space is cute and worth a try at least once

    Loved the ambiance and the outdoor patio would be great for a nice day. The cocktail menu was appealing- and the drink was excellent. The place felt like a tiki bar in the making (which we love) but not quite there yet. The food was very good but the menu was too limited. Felt there weren’t enough options and while the food was good it felt like it missed on the overall vibe of the restaurant. Just feels a bit of an identity crisis but with so much potential. We’d go back but for drinks only. Expand the menu and we’d return for sure!!

    Overall it was fine. The menu was pretty limited and I felt the prices were a bit high, especially because the item I ordered was missing ingredients. The servers were quite nice and attentive. The space itself is really great whether you sit at the bar, either side of the restaurant or on the patio.

    We wanted to try something new but was disappointed with the limited menu. I don’t know how they say they are a Mexican food restaurant when there isn’t much that would be considered as Mexican food. The noise level was so loud as there wasn’t any sound buffers. The food took a long time and wasn’t exceptional in any way and certainly not a good value. The photos online are deceptive as well.

    Overall experience was incredible. The food (we split the Navajo taco appetizer and the pozole pork shank with side of refried beans) was flavor packed and plentiful, Cocktail menu was inventive and delicious. The time to appetizer was quite long but that was recognized by the manager and handled swiftly. The wait I wouldn't call a negative with how well it was handled. I would gladly go back anytime!

    Drinks are great and fairly well priced . Citrus salad was missing the citrus and underdressed. Wife had the dish mmm fish and chips which where delicious and I had the mesquite chicken that was amazing. Unfortunately my entree was incorrect at first and. Instead of retiring the fish and chips my wife mostly ate alone while I Waited for Mine.

    If there was a way to give more than 5-stars I would. Frankly, this was one of the best dine-out dinners I had in a while. We had a party of eight out in the Tempe area for a vaca trip and this was our final night. Well worth every dollar! We had a various drinks and food items. All which people went crazy over and enjoyed. On the restaurant’s site there is a statement on buying the chef(s) a drink. I took part in this with no second thoughts. The pork shank, fries, tacos, burger, drinks, and other were throw the spoon down amazing. I have absolutely nothing negative to say, and this goes for the food choices, food quality, service level, and staff. Trust me. You’ll enjoy this place

    We chose this restaurant because it marketed a Mother’s Day brunch experience. However, there was no experience, rather just the usual brunch menu, and the food was lacking in flavor and in quality. The hostess was lovely and gracious, and it was so nice to see many large groups selected this restaurant for the M.D. experience. The server was wonderful and did the best that one could do with such a large party, while maintaining her smile. She was constantly moving, clearly a hard worker, certainly an asset to the business. Start to finish the service ran 3 hours long for a party of our size, with the appetizers and a couple of alcoholic drinks taking the longest to be served. The dining areas and bathrooms were kept very clean throughout the 3 hours of our stay. We may not return, but it was nice to try out this restaurant. Beautiful location.

    This place has such a great vibe. The pork shank was amazing, especially if you add a side of mashed potatoes. The churros and coconut ice cream dessert is one of the best desserts I have had in a long time. The wait staff is friendly and prompt.

    Service was extremely slow and food/drinks took a long time to come out compared to the last time we were here. The place appeared to be understaffed to handle the Cinco de mayo crowd but we’ll be back. This was probably just an off night.

    We had a wonderful little table under the string lights on their patio. It was virtually perfect weather that evening for dining outside. Our server was young, funny, honest about the menu, highly attentive, and we really enjoyed having him take care of us. All other service was quick and attentive throughout our experience too. The place has a really unique and interesting cocktail menu at a very affordable price point. Our group really explored that menu and enjoyed most of them very much. Top drink recommendation: Pear Bonding. The food is an interesting southwestern fusion. A lot of the food is very rich, but they do have an inspired choice of salads, too, and the salad that was selected as an entree at our table (Citrus Salad) received a rave review. The rotating burger was their Pastrami Burger (image currently featured on their online menu) and it was enjoyable and flavourful, but it was a lot. The Navajo Fried Bread was shared as an appetizer and it was filling and very tasty. Simply put, opinions on all of the dishes ordered ranged a bit -- but nobody left disappointed in their meal. All in, this was a great dining experience for us in Tempe.

    The hostess was terrible and snarky. Our reservations were at 7:15pm and we arrived at 7:03 to check in. She said she couldn’t seat us until 10 min before so I asked, “in two minutes” and she basically looked at me and rolled her eyes. The food was mediocre, except for the pork shank. The pork shank was flavorful and tender. The fish and chips was so so; fish was nice and flaky but the breading was too doughy. Our waitress, Charlie was nice. Another waitresses dropped off our appetizers and I asked her for 3 set of utensils because there were none on our table, she acknowledged me but never came back with it; we had to grab it off another table. Overall, not a good experience at this restaurant.
