Food was good , ambience was good , only thing was our waitress sucked ! We had to ask her multiple times to bring our drinks and silverware etc . And had to go find her to get the check because she never came back to the table

This was mine and my husbands first time here. We walked in a little early. Our reservation was for 8:30 we were directed towards the bar . After about 15 minutes we finally got someone's attention. Once we got drinks we were seated . This is when date night went downhill. We were seated next to what I'm assuming was a big birthday celebration. Long story short they were all drunk and having a blast and we weren't. We just wanted to have a nice evening. The guys literally almost fell on my husband multiple times. A few girls almost fell on me because our table was so close to theirs. They broke glass more than once . Drinks splashed on us . The most annoying part about this is that when we went to the bathroom we saw another much more suitable room for dinner! We were asked by both the hostess and the server if this was our first time here and neither one suggested moving us to that other room. We really regret not sitting in there. The evening would of been so much nicer. Maybe it was our bad for not knowing about it but again it was our first time there . Probably won't come back .

Beautiful place to have brunch at. The menu was so hard to pick from everything sounded delicious. I had the breakfast burrito and i loved it. The guacamole is fantastic, a must try if you like guac. My friend had chicken n waffles, the chicken was ok a little hard but the waffle was cooked perfectly.

The food and service was amazing. We were placed by a speaker so it was kind of hard to talk to
One another. The ambiance was great and wish we sat in the back room. Great first time visit.

Best mexican food! Much better than the normal mush of stuff that all tastes the same. The sea bass taquerias were fabulous! Jordan, the manager, greeted us, was so personable. Atmosphere is lively and animated. Delicious!

Went for my birthday with 3 friends so it was a small intimate table. Luckily we got seated in the back where the lit up tree was, and being that it was the evening, it set a nice tone. The food came out AS SOON AS WE ORDERED. My friend thought the orders were a mistake because it came out so fast lol. Though the food came out fast, everything was fresh and hot. The portions you get compared to the is a little on the pricey side but the quality of the food, service and decor make it worth it. I had such a great time.

We celebrated my sister’s birthday here with a delicious dinner and margaritas! The Passionfruit margs were incredible! Queso fundito withe fresh, warm tortillas- so good! I had the vegan tofu enchiladas with mole sauce and would highly recommend as well. Fun vibe and great music. Pretty loud but doable.

By far the best Chili Relleno ever. Winnie the Poo drink amazing. Don’t let the name fool you. The Tree room was charming. Just a delightful experience all around. Would definitely go back the next time we are in LA.

Chill music, awesome cocktails and great food...
We were a little upset they didn’t have any raw fish as they ran out of it during service, but it didn’t ruin the evening.

Excellent atmosphere, cohesive menu and stellar execution. The tastes of all the dishes from the most moderate to the most expensive are outstanding and full. Cant go wrong here.
