This place is dark from the outside so you can't tell what it's like, but it's very pleasant inside. Spaces between tables, good service and full bar. They have daily specials which are quite tasty.

We enjoyed an early dinner taking advantage of happy hour pricing. The margaritas were flavorful and the ceviche tostadas were fresh and really tasty. The server provided great suggestions to round out our meal. We'll be back.
