    Had a lovely lunch there. Day was nice so the floor to ceiling windows were wide open. Food was delicious. I had the brisket torta, which was so tasty. Friend had the mahi mahi which was also good. Servers were kind. Drinks were creative and food. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer spot for lunch, especially on a sunny spring day.

    Excellent food, drinks and service. Way too loud, and this was at 7:30pm. Thanks to the manager that dealt with a very loud and obnoxious table of three disrupting dinners for multiple groups.

    Happy hour was definitely worth it for the taste and value. My margarita was not mixed well… hence 4 stars.

    Portions are small for the price. Disappointed that I mentioned I was celebrating a birthday in my reservation and nothing was done.

    The margaritas were great, as well as the service. But the tacos were not that great.
