Large party of about 20 and a spur of the moment dinner event. The restaurant was very accommodating. The drinks were delicious (I think we had one of each on the menu). Our waitress was wonderful. She explained everything thoroughly and ensured that things kept...More

We went to MU when they just opened and they were overwhelmed. They got it down now! This is not your mother’s Mexican food. This is a foodies place. Innovative dishes, complex tastes and good service. If you went earlier on definitely give it another...More

Mostly enjoyed our meal. Food and service were both good. A little annoying that they charge extra to make a minor substitution in side dishes. On Open Table and also Dining Rewards.

..... too many downsides to overlook this visit. Our second visit and although the flavors and presentations were still excellent and very tasty the visit was marred by too many issues to get my four or five stars. Too crowded - two of us were...More

Mexican food is what we expected but what we got was totally different than the Mexican food we're all used to. A wide variety of dishes surprised us all with some fine dining, not stuffed into a sloppy taco, burrito or laced in re fried...More
