    The variety of the menu, mixing different Mexican-inspired flavors wonderfully, plus great service and a chill atmosphere made our evening an exceptional one! Will certainly come back to try all the items in the menu!

    Amazing food for great value, but absolutely horrible service. Had to go inside to ask for the check after waitress did not come over for 30 minutes. Then had to go in to pay the check because no one came to collect it. No water refills for the last hour

    I've been to Alta Calidad several times and the food is always fantastic. For some reason my breakfast burrito - my go-to usual- was a bit too spicy today. Still fantastic, but a little spicier than my preference. My daughter had the steak tacos, which is her favorite. She said they were really delicious. But, I must say that anyone I bring there for brunch has been wowed by the quality and flavor of the food. My favorites are the pancakes, the breakfast burrito, and the chips, guacamole and salsa. My Drinks are tasty, and even the coffee is fantastic. I've never been there for dinner so I can only vouch for the brunch and lunch, which never disappoints!

    I came here for brunch with a few friends and we sat outside. They have nice seating outside. Their brunch food is great but SPICY. I like spicy food but their green sauce is on everything and is very spicy. So it was hard for us to finish some of our food. It was a bit expensive, but a nice experience.

    Very good food, fresh, well prepared. The noise level was noisy, I hate having to shout conversation or have to lean across the table to hear someone.

    Foolishly I thought that Vanderbilt would be noisy with traffic and chose a table inside. WRONG!! The noise level inside was mind numbingly high.
