    Lovely ambiance, really cool vibe. Good was good, though the menu (all small plates to share) was somewhat limited. Flavors were tasty. We felt forgotten in the last third of our visit. Table wasn’t cleared between courses, etc. we’d recommend it overall though.

    The only element of our experience that was negative was the fact that having arrived early, we were not able to be seated at a table because that section of the restaurant had not opened. However, the food and service were excellent.

    Overall we had a great time! We had an 8pm reservation and they could not seat us until 8:30 and then it took a while to get service. But, other than that....great restaurant! Everything was delish and the favorite of the night was the chorizo quesadillas. The cauliflower tacos had great flavor but the cauliflower was almost raw; They just need to cook it a bit more. But, overall terrific restaurant, lively atmosphere and inventive menu with great flavors.

    Service is definitely not great…they seemed to forget we were there! The food was a decent price for the portions but the food was pretty bland. The vibe in there is cute though. Maybe just for drinks at the bar, is this place worth it.

    The drinks were good, but the food was TERRIBLE. I really don't understand all the wonderful reviews for the food here as we had a group with about 6 different dishes, and all were bad. We had to constantly flag down our server for orders and more water and when we were asked how the first few bites were, she didn't even stop to hear our answer - she just kept walking and didn't listen. When our server asked us at the end of the meal how the food was and we told her we were disappointed and why, she just shrugged and said that they will be changing their menu soon. Only go if you want to have drinks - otherwise don't bother.

    Our experience did not live up to the favorable reviews we found online. It's a cute place with plenty of happy patrons, but the service was slow, the food was overcooked and too salty, and we were a bit disappointed.

    We ordered a dozen plates to share for the table and all the food was delicious. Unfortunately, we were forgotten about and had to continually flag down a server to place orders and get any water carafe refills. The restaurant was busy, but sitting in the middle of the room we saw other tables of equal group size get much better service.

    I went here with friends to celebrate the Fourth and we had a good time. This is a nice spot if you want tapas to share with friends. The portions are small, but you can order a couple items on your own if you’re really hungry. For those who don’t drink alcohol, they can make any of their cocktails as a mocktail.

    Food was good! Not stellar as the fried chicken in the chicken and waffles was dry/over cooked and the hot Cheetos elote was more or less normal Cheetos with some spice to it. Otherwise everything was incredibly flavorful and well done! Service was excellent, and the ambiance was very modern/social. Would come back!

    Loudest restaurant we have ever been to in our life. We couldn’t hear the server or ourselves talk. Our son was covering his ears. We ended up leaving because the noise was that intense.

    Food was 10/10 even though it was slightly expensive. I would highly recommend the chips and guac as well as the empanadas. Drinks weren't absurdly expensive for being in Boston. We got sat in the private back room and it was quiet and very comfortable.

    So my husband and I got a reservation weeks ago because we were celebrating our anniversary and hadn’t been there in 2 years. The only time they had available was at 3 so we were like ok fine early dinner. We get there to find out they only serve brunch til 3:45 and then the kitchen is closed til 5… we were like ok we’ll make the best of this. We get there and it took 10 minutes to seat us for no reason… because we had a resy they knew we were coming…Then the girls next to us basically were having a photo shoot and kept moving around and we had a screaming child on the other side. It took almost 20 minutes for someone to come and take our drink order. And they took the peoples order next to us before ours and they showed up AFTER us. The chips and salsa were straight up bad. It took so long to get our margaritas so we both decided to leave and go elsewhere. The waitress came super fast with the check of all things… Their menu is so limited and weird now. Not a fan. Won’t be back.
