    The guac and chips along with the margaritas were fine, but the rest of the menu is quite poor tasting - oh, and make sure you order less ice in your margarita.

    Nice ambiance and great location within Distillery but quite expensive, $100 margarita pitchers and $20 guacamole, nice to go once but the value just isn’t there anymore to justify the spend.

    Although the restaurant has a great environment and decoration, food was not tasty and service was poor. It is also pricey for what it offers.

    Thank you for visiting our restaurant and your feedback. While we are delighted that you enjoyed our restaurant's environment and decorations, we are sad to hear that we didn’t knock it out of the park for you when it comes to your meal and our service. We take great pride in delivering outstanding, friendly customer service, so we're quite surprised to hear your experience was anything less than outstanding. We hope you consider giving us another chance to demonstrate the amazing service we're known for and you deserve, should you choose to dine with us again. Best Regards, Stuart K.
