Great food, great ambiance. Ample Mexican cuisine menu. Great quality and value. Enjoyed the Margarita's (make sure you order the large size glass). Colorful decor with Mexican cliches.

I came here on a business lunch. The food was ok. The service was nice. Must try the sangria! The only downside is that they charge you a per person fee.

The place makes a good first impression, but as soon as the food came I realized it was not as good as they make it sound, the dishes are very plain and the flavors very uninteresting. In the end it was a bad and expensive meal.

The food was not so good. The check was expensive. I guess you're paying extra for the dozens of employees wandering around...

I got takeaway from this restaurant as it had such good online reviews. I ordered the beef fajitas. I was told it would take 30mins to cook, but when I got there after half an hour it still wasn't ready - I had to wait an extra 10 minutes. Then when I finally got my food home, they hadn't given...

We stopped by during a prewedding trip. Loved the atmosphere, and the food of course. The places is supposed to feel like an old cantina and it works with all the hustle and bustle and great funny quotes all over the walls and lots of Mexican decorations. The food is very tasty and they carry a lot of typical Mexican... More

Fun casual atmosphere. Very friendly service. Live music. Good food, and great Tequila selection. Definitely worth a visit.

Been here several times over the years. Terrific inventive yet somehow accessible cooking representing a number of regions of the country. Unfortunately it does get loud when large groups of people from various businesses get together here. Not inexpensive, especially for Mexico . Yet overall, worth dining here.

Nothing special and certainly no better and in many ways worse than what you'd find in the US. Food was unispired looking at tasting; I had the fish special and it was just bad - not really at all like the menu and a far cry from being a special. Guacamole was good; margarita was huge and very light on... More

If you like or want to try for the first time ¨fancy but classic¨ mexican food, this is the place. Very nice area, very nice restaurant (a little loud), good service, and excellent food. You should really try the Tortilla Soup!!!
