The best Mexican food I’ve ever had. The staff was also excellent!

Food was mediocre at best, and lacked salt, acid and flavor for a Mexican restaurant. Decor was dated and stale.

Food for restaurant week was delicious and an amazing value. They even let us move to a quieter table.

The chips and salsa were excellent, but the rest of the food was very disappointing. The red sauce they use on enchiladas was watery and had no flavor--it looked and tasted like it could have just as easily been used on spaghetti. We paid way too much for bad food.

On the plus side, the restaurant is beautiful and has a very authentic Mexico City vibe. Too bad about the food though.

I️ enjoyed this restaurant a lot. The food was amazing, especially the guacamole (as it’s hand made & fresh, daily) & the churros I️ had for dessert were to DIE for. I.T seemed a bit louder than usual, but only because we were in the room next to the bar during the Eagles playoff game. Other than that, the noise level was basic. Service is incredible, I️ would highly recommend this restaurant!

We got a last minute res for a large party of 9, service was excellent and food was very good. Had people in our party from TX and they don't usually eat Mexican on the east coast but they really enjoyed it. Will be back.

Good for pre theater dining on a long past due return since mid life married days. Menu was more limited than remembered from past but creative and good. Being not so hungry had the tortilla soup and empanadas, soup was delicious and was served without sprinkle of dried peppers at my request. Empanadas, appetizer size, could have been baked to more crisped and heated state but were good tasting, one mushroom filled and other beef. My friend ordered the stuffed poblano peppers entree, very good and on my return I plan to get that dish.
Waiter was attentive and very helpful with choices. The drinks were simply an individual Mexican beer suggested by the waiter and a red wine sangria, both very good.

Never get tired of this restaurant. All of these new trendy Mexican restaurants open up and they will never compare to tequilas. My sautéed shrimp dish was heavenly! (Light but filling) The best skinny margarita I have had. The ambience is also fabulous. Can’t wait to go back...
