Was impressed by this place , have a chef from Mexico City that's a very good start and a Mexican ( real one ) waiter , even better . Tried his green rice which is a classic dish was suitably impressed . All our dishes were great especially the ceviche , nice tortillas .

What a suburbian treasure. Mexican food presented in a fresh contemporary style. So many choices and delicate flavours, and not a soggy sourcream soaked corn chip in sight. The tequilla soaked chicken is a must, I will go back again just for this. Wait staff where lovely and helpful....the hostess/door guard needs to learn some customer service skills. Her attitude sucks...very arrogant and not the first impression you want to give to customers.

Our anniversary dinner, we were treated to good, and friendly service. The food is a new hipster take on Mexican fare, and was very nice. Expect to share your food, and the drinks are pricey, but great cocktails. A great local addition.

My husband (who is Mexican) and I visited this restaurant on the recommendation from another Mexican. Hence the food is wonderful. The only reason we didn't give this place a 5 was the absolutely rude hostess! She seemed so angry with life and talked down to us. She stated that it would be a 45 minute wait for a table so we really should take advantage of sharing a table with other guests- which we did. She was derogatory and just seemed annoyed with life.
The wait staff were superb! So kind and attentive. Again, the food was authentic! The star of the show was the beef tacos. My husband got the 'Tengo Hambre' for $55 which gave him a selection of the menu and very satisfying for the price. The cocktails were great too.
We'll be back and will try to get there early next time so we get our own table.
