    Food was great! The tacos at Chula are fantastic but the tuna tartare was incredible! My only complaint was that we were seated in the upstairs dining room and it was freezing! Next time I’ll request the main floor dining room

    Menu on line wasn’t updated- was told twice- Friday- busy night- need your table by 7:30- no menu substitutions- again busy night. Felt incredibly rushed- hurried- to finish and leave….Definitely did not feel like I could linger and enjoy an evening out.

    Keep in mind I was expecting a lot based on the reviews. The service was good. The people were friendly. The downfall is the food. The shrimp ceviche was just cooked shrimp marinated in something citrus, it tasted one dimensional. The pork taco was dry and tough. The highlight of the meal was the churro sundae. I wouldn’t come back again unless I’m craving the churro sundae.

    The worst customer service. As soon as we arrived, the host told us that we have to stay until 8pm because they had a lot of reservations. We had an hour to eat and enjoy our date. The server was in a hurry when she served the plates and she forgot my beverage. The place in the second floor was very cold. We had a bad experience, we will never come back.

    The food was delicious but their seating rules are rushed and meant our evening had to end earlier than necessary. They only allow diners to sit at the table for 90 minutes. With four people, appetizers and mains this meant either no dessert or just hoovering it. They need a better seating policy because an hour and a half just ain’t it!

    The food and drinks are consistently good here. The service was pretty quick and impressively so given they were short staffed. My only (and significant) note is the person serving us kept putting their finger into our plates/food when serving us so they definitely touched our food. And they grabbed every glass they served us by the rim of the glass or cup. Felt unsanitary and kind of dampened the experience.

    Danny, aka Vinny, aka Darren, aka Derrick was a great host. Strong food reco’s, took care of our table at the right moments, kept the food coming. :) The restaurant seems to take their time allotment seriously (1.5 hours listed in the site). We didn’t have any issues at all, but were reminded that we’d have to give up the table in 2 hours (plenty of time).

    From the front staff to the end of the meal, we had exceptional service. Danny (waiter) was funny and patient and gave really good recommendations. I had to change my reservation the day of and Wilson ( who took my call) was super friendly and handled the request with no complaints. Love this place.

    Delicious food, great decor! We had the Brussel sprouts and guac to start, both delicious, then had a zucchini taco and a bison taco which were both very good. Flight of tequila is such a great idea and all the drinks were great. Cool vibe and reasonably priced for the quality!
