It was my first time dining at Flores. I loved the back patio setting and the interior decor. Super beautiful. The music selection was fantastic and the food excellent. I am vegetarian who leans on the vegan side of things and your food selection was incredible. The wine was tasty too and the bill was absolutely reasonable. The staff were also wonderful. Thank you so much. I will definitely be back.
