Outstanding food and ambience. Took me back to my time living in Hawaii. Having said that, was underwhelmed my the original Mai Tai. Not sure if it was really the formula or just the bartender as the lime had not been squeezed just chucked in with the alcohol. Had to go with the Vic Sling the second time which was awesome. Will I come back? Yes, yes, I will and you should too. More

Enjoyed the food. Everything tasted amazing. The chicken empanadas were awesome for something I expected to be a simple appetizer. The steak was the perfect medium with no additional sauce needed. And our server was awesome. She was attentive and we never ran out of water or waited too long for service or food. My husband made sure to tell the manager she was a great hostess. More

Went on a weekday for lunch after touring the Mercedes Benz Stadium. Service was very slow. We sat there for almost 10 minutes before anyone came over to ask for our order. When the order arrived the dishes were not prepared as listed on the menu. Didn’t realize that was the case until afterwards. Probably during a Falcons game, the service and the food would probably be so much better. More
