This is not your average Mexican restaurant. The food is authentic and innovative. The blackboard specials are always a struggle as you'll want to order it all. The specials change with the seasons offering whatever is fresh and local. If mussels are available you have to go for it - packed with flavor and just enough kick. For starters, the ribs are just what you'd expect - fall off the bone goodness. The octopus and mushroom although sounds like an odd combo is northing short of amazing. I'm partial to the seafood mains but had an outstanding braised lamb shank special. The most important part of the evening is the fresh jalapeno margarita. Out of this world. I've recommended them to many friends who now can't stay away. The service is wonderful. You're greeted with open arms when checking in and feel well taken care of all evening long. This is a special place.

First visit in several months. The service continues to be excellent and attentive. Menu is fun, specials add a number of varied dishes. We loved the margaritas (Don Julio special); tacos are wonderful and 6 or 7 varieties means plenty to choose from. Bass ceviche was outstanding, as was the filet mignon steak.

Met a friend for Friday night dinner. Our reservation was honored timely which is always nice. The drinks and guacamole were very good, but my meal was so-so. I ordered the stuffed pablano pepper and it wasn’t well stuffed, the quinoa didn’t really hold it anything together and it just fell apart, in the bowl which had too much sauce. I would go again but probably try a different dinner option.

All round a great place to have fun. Waiter was very attentive, and careful to make sure we had everything we needed. Ceviche (halibut) was great. Tacos pastor and asada were great. Don Julio margaritas were excellent.

Creative Mexican food with lots of good choices, not just tacos but real tastes. We especially like the ribs, grilled corn and octopus. Our one year old grandson can eat a whole bowl of they guacamole.
