Great social place. Pleasant service from greeting to server. Guacamole was too chunky and I prefer more traditional Mexican food, but great place to gather with friends.

Although I had a reservation, the restaurant was closed. I had an out of town guest from New York City and I wanted to show off the rebirth of downtown Detroit. We drove 60 miles get to Bakersfield only to find it closed. We ended up at Armando's and while the food and drinks were good, it was not the image of Detroit that I had in mind. OpenTable should have known that when a restaurant is closed, reservations are useless. If OpenTable doesn't care, it shouldn't force diners to evaluate a restaurant that is closed. Perhaps, a "closed"checkbox could have been added to allow diners to proceed with evaluating a closed establishment.

David - I sincerly apologize that this was your experience with us. We were closed the day after Christmas due to staffing problems, and through our in house technology had shut down reservations on Open Table about five days prior. I'm not sure what glitch allowed any more to come through after that, but I completely understand your frustration arriving at our restaurant and finding us closed.

Dimmish romantic lighting and a semi-loud buzz of energy. Not the best tacos in the city (especially for the price) but the location is conveniently located and drinks are solid. Would recommend it to anyone looking to bring a date out for Mexican.

Great limey fresh guacamole and tasty margarita. The fish taco was ok and the huitlacoche was good. The place was packed inside, so it was difficult to have a conversation. I wasn't blown away, but think they're using quality ingredients and have good overall experience.

I would’ve given it 5 stars across the board until the hostess was short and rude to us. She blamed it on the noise level but I’m not too sure. When I expressed my disappointment with her attitude she brushed me off and never apologized.
