    The food was absolutely excellent as was the service. However, the music in the outdoor area where we sat was far too loud - so loud, in fact that you could not have a conversation in a normal voice, but had to almost yell. It was most certainly not a venue, aware one could have a quiet intimate dinner.

    Had absolutely the best Mexican meal I’ve had in Charleston ever and the staff was kind polite, professional, and took the best care of us. We definitely cannot wait to go back and I recommend it to anyone considering dining downtown not just for Mexican as they have quite a wide variety of delicious dishes, you will not be disappointed

    First, I’d like to comment that the server was fantastic. The food was nothing special. The meat for the tacos was very dry as well as the meat that was in my husband’s dish very dry. The ceviche was nothing special at all. It had very cheap oil mixed in with it. It didn’t have much of a flavor at all. The chips were good. It was too loud in there to enjoy a conversation.

    Thank you for the kind comments on the service and thank you for the feedback, I am so sorry that was your experience and we would love to have you back to make it right. Thank you, Jared Stanfield

    First time enjoying the outside patio Everytime I’ve dined here Jared takes great care of us…. Jordan gave great customer service and was definitely a key to our great experience…. Definitely our number one pick for our family outing. James and the kitchen crew always have something new that blows us away…..

    Took 45 minutes for my table to get cocktails. Birria consume tasted like it had soy sauce in it. Probably the worst restaurant experience I have ever had.
