    Ordered dinner and drinks at a round corner table with a great server. After 9pm some tables were removed to make room for dancing but we’re still consuming cocktails at the table. A 3 person party shows up and says they will be ordering bottles of wine, so Joaquin (Host) grabs our coats and jackets and pushes them to the side, pulls the table from us and says pretty much kicked us off our table. Offered to give us a smaller one but the way he grabbed our stuff without asking and telling the party that no one is sitting there in front of our faces was wrong.

    Very poor service and horrible management. Customer service was disappointing. We never received water and our order took over an hour to arrive- that was only after we addressed it with the manager Joaquin- who instead of apologizing, questioned if we even placed an order to begin with. Very rude and condescending. I never leave reviews - good or bad, but he really made our party feel uncomfortable and upset. When I mentioned to him how disappointed I was in the customer service, he went on to state that there are people dying in a war. I don’t understand how that has anything to do with the poor customer service. That was the tipping point for our party. We were looking forward to staying for the DJ party after dinner but no longer wanted to stay and never want to go back.

    Online menu differs from menu when you’re actually in restaurant. Looked at menu before arriving so I had an idea of what I wanted and when receiving the menu when I was seated, it was completely different and had almost none of the same items. Very disappointing.

    Disappointed. I expected 'authentic' Mexican regional food. It was pretty much the same as any other Mexican restaurant. The waiter was a nice guy, but clueless and didn't speak English: brought 2 sets of napkins for a table of four, by example, and was hard to find. I had to go up to the bar. The bartender knew next to nothing about the decent selection of Tequilas. The outdoors was pleasant except for having to go back in to find the waiter.

    There weren't many people, which was great because of both Covid-19 and because the service was faster. We were eating in less than 15 minutes after ordering, which I loved.

    The watermelon margarita during happy hour is the best. I like the tacos too, but only wish they would turn down the volume of the music. It's a busy place too so I generally try to order as soon as I can or 5 minutes before I would somewhere else.

    What a pleasant surprise. I have to say the food was very good. The place is small and this night, also crowded. The drinks were flowing. We mostly drank margaritas which were priced right and were delightful and refreshing. But the food was the star here. The guacamole was fresh and tasty that alone gets 5 stars. We were 6 women and we enjoyed everything they brought out - delicious.

    Was very disappointed by the place. It was my friend’s birthday and I was uncomfortable taking her there. The place seems to be falling apart. The seats were very uncomfortable, it’s was freezing and when it started raining there was water falling in our heads. The food was good but the service terrible. We had to stand up and go to the front a couple of times to get somebody.

    We enjoyed our dinner and drinks. Food was excellent and margaritas were great. We didn’t know beforehand that happy hour was from 5-8 and you could drink either at the bar or the table. nice surprise. We went on a Friday night and it was packed. Noise level is high but that wouldn’t stop us from going back for this authentic food!
