    Wow! Where do I begin? We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The waiter introduced himself and acknowledged my parent's anniversary celebration. The chips and salsa arrived soon after which helped quiet three hungry kiddos and four adults. Do NOT pass up on the guacamole...it was incredible! Best we've ever had. The adults imbibed on a pitcher of the Oyamel Margarita while the kids enjoyed a Mexican Coca-Cola. Of all of the tapas, we really enjoyed the squash blossom tacos, the Tuna tacos, and the shrimp the most, but every dish was delicious in it's own special way. The kids really enjoyed the chicken quesadillas. Our waiter was extremely attentive and a young hostess helped us procure t-shirts to memorialize the evening. The shirts are seriously the coolest -- awesome designs and soft material.

    We got the tasting menu with wine pairing and they were able to accommodate us to leave out the red meat. Solid throughout but most of all, I loved the ceviche with its little of everything bites. Perfect dish when it’s a heat wave outside. Our red meat replacement was a noodle and sweet tomato sauce that I couldn’t place but very tasty. The dessert was just as amazing, creamy with citrus granita providing acidity and crunch. The wine pairings were great, loved the minerality of the first wine and the supple tannins of the Malbec with the main course. Service was so friendly and attentive, worthy of a first class restaurant.

    It lived up to its excellent reputation for food & service. We shared a shrimp paella. And a shrimp + aioli appetizer. Dessert was flan. All were extraordinary! BUT, it was VERY noisy, with loud music in the background, which we asked to be lowered, evidently to no avail. The noise was a detractor for us because, well, we wanted to talk!

    We had a lovely table for our special occasion lunch right by the big window. The six of us ordered multiple dishes from the hot and cold mezze and enjoyed every single one. My son said the chicken kabob was “the best chicken I have ever eaten in my life.” The zucchini pancakes, roasted Brussels sprouts and Labneh with zaatar were standouts for us, and the hot puffy bread of course. The pides had good flavor but just a tad too much cheese on top for us. Service was very friendly and efficient. Thank you for making our lunch memorable.
