Had a birthday dinner reservation.
Amazing food - had their signature guacamole, aguachile, and tacos. Good portion size, amazing flavour profile.best margaritas in the city!

The server (can’t remember the name) was very nice. Went out of his way to make my friend and I feel good and enjoy ourselves. Made the night special for my friends birthday!

Overall great experience, food, and service. Would definitely recommend!!!!

Really disappointed. They got rid of a lot of great menu options. Service was extremely slow and inattentive even though the restaurant itself was not busy. Did not check in on food, didn't fill waters, waited 35 mins for shrimp tacos, waiter gave us cheque and before we finished paying he walked away. Not even thanking us for coming. And the cherry on top? My husband and I got very sick from our meal. Super let down because this used to be one of our favourite restaurants in the city. Will NOT be coming back.

I used to like this restaurant, but had the worst meal. Their stuffed poblano, was the worst i have ever had. They do not mention that it is heavily breaded and deep fried. Made a mistake of talking a friend into how good stuffed poblanos typically are. To add to this travesty, it was stuffed with pork belly, most of which was incredibly under-cooked - so tough you could not chew threw it, my stomach still churns thinking of this deep fried thing. My first margarita was really good, but the second one took 30 minutes to get from time of order (service grew increasingly worse as the meal went and it was not a busy night) and had twice the syrup in it. If i had not been with customers i would have sent everything back, but i did not want to make a fuss in front of people. Between 4 people we had 6 drinks (regular tequila), 4 mains, one appetizer and bill was $320. This will definitely be the last time i take clients here - so embarrassing.

Sorry to say that I would only go back for the margaritas. Food was not great, tacos were way too dry, appetizers quite expensive for the amount you get. Like I said though the margaritas were awesome!

Some of the food was very good while the enchiladas were so so but I’ll know better next time. Server was friendly and moved us to a larger table once he realized the food would not all fit comfortably. I have left a message via their website as I have an issue I’d like to discuss with management but yet to receive any response.

The food and drinks were beyond amazing. The restaurant and service were excellent. The price tag was high, but for the quality of food it made sense.

Vegetarian options are ok on main dish menu (goat cheese stuffed jalapeno is big and can feed two people on its own) but other then a mushroom taco (average at best) you are left with starters or salads for veg diets. Luckily I am flexitarian and the chorizo taco is good. Order the guac and then a few tacos each plus one main between 4 and you are full. Menu does not seem to have changed in two years and are showing age (physically and literally) but food is still good.

The chips aren't made in house anymore, the prices are up, the tacos were not presentable, the pico de gallo was dumped on top of my tacos instead of on the side like I asked. It was almost too loud to have a conversation and one of our drinks was forgotten. We have been coming here since they opened so much has changed. Quality has been sacrificed.

Ordered shrimp tacos & also tried mushroom taco. Was much too spicy for my taste. Couldn’t finish the mushroom & did not enjoy shrimp. There should be some type of spice ranking on the menu or servers should indicate when ordering. Table side guacamole was excellent. Our group agreed we might come back for drinks & guacamole but are reluctant to do dinner here again. Upon leaving, hostess said pork tacos are sweeter & not so spicy.

Tasty food but would be better if you're not a large party, as those tables are located either by the bathroom or by the windows. This week is -35 in Calgary.

After booking my reservation through open table I left a voicemail to speak to someone about my reservation but no one returned my call. I had to call multiple times to speak to someone about increasing the reservation to 8.
Once I spoke with someone she was very pleasant and helpful
The area we sat in was cold but I was warned
The food was good
The server was not the best. Which was odd because I always have a friendly server when I eat here. He seemed annoyed which then made the table annoyed with him.

I was underwhelmed by the food and presentation. Our table was moving the whole time, the seating was not comfortable at all. Tables are small and very close together, not allowing any privacy to have a conversation. Margaritas were good but came in very small glasses filled with ice, not a good value for money(as compared to other very good options in the city) Not a fan! Food was ok, lacked seasoning, which we had to ask for. The carnitas were bland and lacked any type of flavor.

The service from the minute we walked in the door was terrible. The same guy who greeted us was also our server and he was just awful. He made all 6 of us feel we were really inconveniencing him by being there.

As soon as I walked in the hostess felt the need to tell me that my reservations was only for 2 hours and we’d have to leave by then. The other guest hadn’t even arrived yet and the clock was already ticking. I booked at 5:30 with intent of relaxing and having a beverage or two before ordering dinner. Then the person who brought our guacamole insulted me by commenting on my laugh in a rude manner. At about an hour in, I courteously let the hostess know we hadn’t ordered dinner yet and would probably not be done in the next hour. Then, after we ordered, our food arrives and my order is wrong. So my gf is waiting while her food gets cold until my food comes for a second time. This is also when the hostess decided to come over and let us know she’s ‘shuffled some things around’ and given us an additional 45 minutes. By the time we left it was almost empty in there. I told the manager about this experience. He told the gm. On getting our bill the gm did come over and apologize. He covered our meals that were about $25 - 30 total and left is with $100 in drinks. Not an adequate compensation in my opinion. They clearly don’t value the customer. Would I go back? The hostess wasn’t hospitable. The guacamole kid was rude. The order was wrong. The food was cold. But them chilli lime margs tho... the ONLY thing I’d ever return for. Kudos to the bartenders. The drinks are spot on and the right temperature. Everything else was sub-par.

The only issue, as I have been here many times, is that my booking stated 'birthday' and there was no mention if it from the server in anyway. Not sure why it would be asked if there is no follow up?

Thanks
