    The restaurant was fabulous the food, service and atmosphere were perfect it’s OPEN TABLE not so fabulous. We had a $100 reward to use there, I followed all of the steps to activate it, showed in my account ready to use yet was declined in spite of several attempt.I think these “rewards” are a SCAM by open table. They try to discourage you by making it complicated to request the reward then when you finally get through the steps to use it then it doesn’t work! Buyer beware! ruined what was a nice dinner because of this BS operation called Open Table I will pursue legal action for misrepresentation

    We decided to go at the last minute so we ended up on the patio which was not ideal. Service was very good but they kept coming over to ask about taking a photo and we weren’t interested. Next time I will make sure I’m I. The dining room. Food is always great!

    This was my 2nd time here and my cousin's first time for her bday. It was not the same experience the first time I visited. We had to send several dishes back. We ordered the chocolate cake along with the free quatro leches cake they give you for your bday and the free cake was way better than the cake we had to pay for. I'm not sure if this was a bad piece of cake or it it was suppose to be dry and crumbly like dirt. It was absolutely disgusting. Overall the bday dinner was ok, but nothing that knocked my socks off.

    we went for my husband‘s birthday on Cinco de Mayo. I was last minute and trying to find a place to take him for dinner and thankfully we got a reservation here. The menu is incredible and we had a hard time picking what we wanted to eat because it all sounded so good, we ended up sharing a bunch of the hot shareables and Seabass ceviche, which was my favorite! Our waiter was so friendly and knowledgeable about the entire menu and the restaurant itself. The bathroom and area around the bathroom was fun for pictures last but not least they brought him a fun dessert with a sparkler for his birthday we will definitely be back.
