    Food good, nice place, the only bad think is there’s no parking by the restaurant. You need to find parking on the street or find a parking spot, but be aware that if is a event in crypto arena it’s going to be parking super expensive.

    If you are going to see a show at the Orpheum Theater or any other place on Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles, this restaurant is the best place to go and dine beforehand. The service was terrific, and the food was tasty. While they do specialize in meat dishes, they also had Scallops, Branzino and a Lobster Enchilada, as well as vegetarian dishes on the menu. The cocktails are tasty!

    The service was very attentive, friendly and professional. The ribeye chicharrone was a table favorite and I will always order the queso fundido. I loved the scallops served on a kind of rich, creamy elote, and my husband always orders the carnitas! Sitting on the terrace where Main and Spring converge with Daddy Yankee playing set the stage for a wonderful atmosphere, and a beautiful urban evening!

    The service was excellent! The waiters were very friendly, attentive, and made us laugh. We had a party of 8 and 4 of us ordered steaks. They were not cooked the way we requested them so that was a bit disappointing for it being a Mexican Steakhouse. Everything else was delicious, especially the drinks!

    The food and service was amazing. We went during Dine LA and we had great appetizers and steak. Their cocktails are some of the best I have tried. Can’t wait to come back! Our waiter was so friendly and took the time to explain the menu and had great recommendations.

    This restaurant served the worst and most bizarre guacamole I’ve ever had. It had some kind of white cheese that I did not care for and crispy garbanzo beans. The avocados were not quite right-too pale? How do you mess up guacamole?! This is how. Mussels were no bueno too. Dips/salsa that was served complimentary was good but not great. Restaurant empty (should have given us a clue) and service was friendly but slow.

    We were here for Dine LA. The food was delicious (we had the ceviche and street corn, the pork tomahawk and the wagyu, the brussel sprouts and the flan and ice cream). The cost of the meal with definitely worth it. We also ordered drinks (El Diablito and wine); both very good. The service was amazing and they were friendly and attentive. (We did not leave hungry!). The restaurant itself is in an interesting location (plenty of paid parking around) and has a unique style. We really enjoyed our overall experience, would definitely recommend and will be back!

    Everything was great except our wait time. The restaurant did not look busy but it looked like the kitchen was really behind because our wait time was over an hour for appetizers. Would definitely give them another try.

    Made a reservation here for my anniversary dinner and thought it was a nice place to have it . Especially since they have a patio upstairs and it’s what I had reserved as well. Well when I got there I wasn’t greeted and we informed about our anniversary and instead of putting us in the patio they took us upstairs and seated us in the middle of everyone. I couldn’t talk to my partner without shouting it was horrible not what I intended for my anniversary dinner. The food was good for the most part . But overall if you’re looking for a regular steakhouse that over prices their food this is the spot 👍.

    The vibe were nice. Great ambiance, friendly staff! The best thing we order were the drinks. We tried 3 different appetizers and wasn’t a fan of any of them. The queso was really stringy and not “dippable” & the rib eye steak guacamole was fried too hard and there was almost no guacamole under it. Wasn’t a fan.

    The only thing better than the (incredible/top tier) food was the people. Every member of their staff greeted us and told us goodbye. One of the best dining experiences I've had in Los Angeles.

    We were a little disappointed with the place. I guess after going to Polanco bin Hawthorn we were expecting the same ambiance and service. Waiter seemed to rush us out. He didn’t even offer us to see the dessert menu.

    Wax worried when we got a last minute reservation and place was almost empty when we arrived but All was outstanding! Ribeye/ guacamole appetizer was excellent and a must have. Queso appetizer also excellent. Drinks were some of the best craft cocktails we've had in LA! Carnitas and enchiladas dinners were large portions and also excellent. We will definitely be back!
