Our daughter and spouse were celebrating a special anniversary; we called and ordered champagne and wine for them. Nothing was done. And the table they reserved was not available......a poor performance by all concerned.

Fun place with good food and friendly service. Live music a big plus. Try to get outside table. Margaritas lacked alcohol but upon complaint were improved.

Went to eat here after spending time at the Santuario de Chimayo. Great pet friendly patio is on 3 levels and every inch is shaded. Some of the best New Mexican food I've ever had. Great margaritas!

We had a fabulous dinner. There were 10 of us. They divided the checks up, no problem. We sat on the patio and so glad we did. Make sure that you have a reservation. Highly recommend!

I thought I'd have a light lunch, but it turned out to be more of a dinner. Very good and a good wait staff.
