We had the sopes, ahi tuna tacos, crispy tempura nopales tacos (very creative!), asada tacos, crispy tempura cauliflower tacos, New York tacos, Alaskan wild cod tacos and wild Mexican white shrimp tacos. All were exceptional. Great flavors. Generous portions. Nice wines by the glass. Beautiful space inside and out. And the service was great. What a great addition to the neighborhood! Looking forward to our next visit.

The sushi burrito was very tasty but a little messy to eat as it fell apart but the flavors were great! Both the snapper taco and the NY steak taco were delish and Max’s Marg yummy!
