Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 48reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by I would have given a higher rating but our server got 1 order of 4 wrong and was not gracious in the way it was handled. The meal was returned to the kitchen and the correct one eventually brought to the table but it was clearly thrown together when compared to other diners' plates who had ordered the same thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Food was great- service was a bit slow. There were only 2 servers and a bar back and busser. (and bartender). We love the place, but they really need to have an additional server on the floor- at least on Thurs. nights. Aug 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great food, excellent service & amazing decor. Aug 20, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The restaurant is noisy, expensive (for Mexican cuisine)and the service is OK; but not great. Food is usually pretty good; but, for this meal: the greens were "mature" and on the tough side. The steak was tasty; but nearly impossible to slice. Aug 16, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by We stopped by early Saturday evening and the restaurant was busy, but they were able to seat us within a few minutes. Our server was great and food came out in a timely manner. The Blood Orange Margarita is a MUST try!We ordered Potato Tacos and Soy Chorizo Tacos which came with a side of rice & bean combination. Serving size was perfect for us. Apr 1, 2014
