Have been here twice, both times with work friends....it's light and fun. The Happy Hour drinks and food are great. And for dinner, I recommend the steak...it was the best I've had in a long time.

Pricey for DTLA Mexican food but amazingly good. We had chili rellano and enchiladas but everything looked fantastic.

Loved the food, nice Mexican fare, with a twist. Our group ordered everything from vegetarian dishes to fish, beef, etc and deserts. Everything was very good, including their take on the Marguerita (loved the black salt rim!).

My girlfriend told me about this place and we went there for dinner last Saturday. It is a very nice place. They have happy hour from 4-7 on Saturday. It is most mexican/spanish. some of the dishes were a little spicy for me but if you like spicy you will like this place.

Great Mexican spot in the Arts District not too far from downtown. Guac was fresh and amazing. Molè was muy authentico! Our party had a great time, and especially enjoyed the blood orange margaritas. We'll be back.

We ate dinner here and it was yummy!! We ordered the guacamole appetizer and it was great!! I had the Pollo al Ajillo which was chicken and fresh, diced, stir-fried veggies and it was outstanding! The bread pudding for dessert has it's own twist and was fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed!!!

Thought this placed looked nice and had good reviews but think its a bit over rated, its not bad its just not anything special either. Also you have to go through a bit of a dodgy part of town to get there

I crave this food now. I want to drive to L.A. just to have dinner here. It doesn't get better. The food and service is excellent!!! Wish them much success but hope it doesn't get overrun once people realize what a great place this is. Also, hope that their success doesn't lead to greater gentrification that displaced the homeless and... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
