Neat place in a great location. Service was lacking. Had to ask and wait on drinks, condiments, lime for beer, etc. things that should have been normal. Food was good but pricey. Loved the atmosphere and so glad they take open table reservations!

The customer service was very poor. From the moment we walked in the door we were met by a very rude hostess who instead instead of greeting me just looked up at me and said, “yeah?”. Then our server disappeared for long periods of time leaving us with empty cups and needs not met. While it was busy, they were heavily staffed so there is no excuse for poor service when your server is just hanging around the kitchen. Really disappointed in this place as we had hoped to love it. Would not recommend for a date night as it was so incredibly loud we could hardly hear each other and we were sitting right beside each other.

Our food was exceptional, however the service was lacking. The room closest to the windows, looking outdoors, was used for folding towels and closed off. This made our table location extremely dark.

We arrived in time for happy hour, but close to the cut off time. The waitress told us she didn’t have time to get a happy hour menu. It was my daughters birthday, and they never brought the birthday ice cream.

I’ve eaten here before, and this was out of the norm, but unfortunately a negative experience for the five other people I brought with me.

Our server didn’t listen well.
Brought water w/lemon after asking for no lemon.
Brought my guest the wrong good.
Brought me the wrong swirl margarita.
Probably new and tried hard just needs more experience listening.

The hostess was extremely rude. We showed up for our reservation and she informed us that someone from our party was already at our table.... except we were all standing there in front of her. After waiting about five minutes because she gave our table to the wrong party, we were taken to a table with less seats than we needed. She brought us a chair to add an extra seat and basically dropped it five feet away from the table so that one of us had to go and drag it over. Thankfully our server was fantastic, so it made up for her awful attitude

We had a pleasant experience.
The drinks were good, the food was above average and the service was friendly.
The tortilla chips were too thin and the meat portions on the fajitas were skimpy.
The tacos were good, especially the seared tuna.
The menu is so taco centric, we prefer a Mexican place with a wider range of traditional dishes.

We love the food, service, and atmosphere. They have great meal options for everyone in the family. Most of all, we love the pinata.

Great place to eat, food is spot on. Is very busy, seems like 6:00-8:00 is prime time on Saturday. I had a 7:15 reservation for 2 and arrived about 15 minutes early and had to wait. Bathroom is very small for such a large establishment. Love the chocolate piñata but the ice cream is amazing. My third trip, will be back.

Server Kayli (?) was great. Food was great. Overall great experience.

However, noticed another server with an unsightly and large hickey on his neck. Found this to be low class, bad form and unacceptable. Raised the issue to the manager and she seemed somewhat dismissive about it stating that the employee told her it was rope burn and she suggested that there was nothing she could do about it.

I told her the employee was lying and that this marking was in horrible tasted especially since the server had a table with a number of young kids.

My wife and I will be back but I wanted to bring this lack of leadership to your attention. The manager could take action but failed to do so. The employee should know better as well. Some behavior is not acceptable.

Do appreciate you listening and the overall experience was very good and we will be back.

Thank you.

Our experience had a rocky start when we showed up for our reservation and were given a pager and asked to wait a few minutes. We didn’t mind except for the two couples that came in after us without any reservation and were seated before us. After a discussion with the hostess and an apology we were sat. It was a new individual that did not understand the technology apparently. Anyway, our waitress was the saving grace. She was amazing. She had a full understanding of the menu and was able to make key recommendations. She also informed us of how the steak portion of our meal was typically prepared and asked if that was ok before we got our food which would limit our waiting time and a complaint which was very much appreciated. The food was amazing and so were the drinks, mixed perfectly. We cannot wait to go back again and would certainly recommend this establishment.

Valet parking and reservations were appreciated very much. The hostess and our server couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The table side guacamole was delicious as were the chips. The food arrived before we had eaten the chips and guac so, if you're in a hurry, this is your place. If not, delay ordering your food until you're ready for it. The food was average - not delicious and not horrible. Just average. The prices are about what you'd expect for Brentwood.

This food was amazing! The guacamole was made right before our eyes and was so fresh.
Our server Sweet T was there when we needed her and refilled our water quickly. She was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. I will visit again!

Did not measure up to my first visit, which was very good. The food seemed hurried this time, I had the seared tuna, and it didn’t have the sear. Chips were all broken.
Will go back

We came for my daughters 4th birthday. She loved the quesadilla, cheese dip, and the chocolate piñata.
The food was amazing! My husband and I got the chicken and steak fajitas for two. Their chips were so yummy and the tortillas were House-made and delicious.
Our server was nice, but he was really slow! I’m just going to assume he was new. We were there for almost 2 hours because it took him so long to do everything.
I would definitely be willing to go again though. The food was so good!
