We'd been introduced to Ama Cocina on a food tour, and wanted to go back for dinner. A weeknight early dinner (6 PM) found the place fairly empty, so we were served within 5 minutes of ordering. There are so many INTERESTING choices. I had...More

My husband and I were staying at a hotel just around the corner so we decided to stop here after dinner. The bartender was very friendly and helped us pick out what we wanted. We weren't sure what tequila to get, so she picked two...More

I'm not entirely sure why the concierge recommended this restaurant. The enchiladas I ordered were extremely bland and some of the rice wasn't fully cooked. I'm guessing his taste buds were shot! I would not recommend.

Friendly staff, conveniently located for pre-show rendezvous at CapRep. Chicken Tortilla soup and Fish tacos were DELICIOUS. Table nachos and salsa are not your ordinary "chips and dip" but a more authentic full tortilla with fresh salsa. Beer and margarita selection was perfect for our...More
