    Snow day and it was quiet, but the service and food was spot on. Great drinks and must be a great room when it's busy.

    It was bad! I only gave them 3 stars for service because the girl who served us was nice. Place is kind of old and dirty with hanging dirt in the corners. Nachos were OK, though the dip portions were very small. We also ordered chicken and beef fajitas which were a total disaster. Chicken was low grade meat with bones and skin in it. Beef was absolutely uneatable (just a piece of rubber sole). I couldn't chew it and had to spit it out eventually. Vegetable in the fajitas felt like they were cooked the day before and then reheated. Never coming back and wouldn't recommend it.

    Good service and food. Turned the lights down a few times during happy hour so bit tricky to see. No tp in the women's stall. I'd go back but check the roll first!

    Food and drinks were so expensive. Our dinner took about 40 mins to come out and 2 of our 4 people were served and then it took another 15 mins for the last 2 people to get dinner. We ordered tacos, so it wasn't a complex dinner to make and serve people at the same time. My friend ordered the tortilla soup and it tasted like thick tomato sauce. Recipe needs a revamp for sure!

    Very lively restaurant. The food and drinks were great but it was a little too loud, and the football on tv didn't help the ambience.

    Possibly the worst/ most shocking service we’ve received at a restaurant in Vancouver. The staff ignored us when we said we had a reservation and the front door man swore at us when we first got to the entrance. After being seated and waiting 30 mins we we were told that the kitchen was closed so we did not get a change to try any food.

    Service was really slow, it took over 30 mins to get the apps we ordered and then our food came out one dish at a time even we ordered together so my friend was done with his food before my boyfriend and I could get ours. It was our first time there and it wasn't a good experience and we probably won't be back

    Nice twist on Mexican fusion with some unique ingredients. Great deals for Happy Hour, but maybe a bit expensive outside of that time for tacos.

    Server was great. Food was great. Ambiance was awesome. Ordered an appy for food, tastes unreal, but took 45 minutes to arrive. We wanted more food but had somewhere to be and based on the appy taking that long obviously made us not want to wait any longer.
