Unreal food - the mushroom fundido and guiness braised short rib tacos are at the top of my list and you can never go wrong with the classic margaritas.

Our servers were fantastic, every restaurant should be so lucky as to have staff like that. The food was great for the most part, flavours were amazing. The only issues were with the tortillas for the tacos, they were lousy and the veggie tacos were really bad. Fix that and it is 5 stars.

We arrived for our reservation of 5 people and were greeted immediately by name by the manager, a nice touch. The server came to our table and got cocktails and wine service started while she explained the menu and dropped off a complimentary pork rind snack. Unknown to us, we had a guest with a few crazy allergies, not only were they very accommodating, the manager and chef actually edited a copy of the menu to illustrate what was available and safe to eat for our guest. Way beyond anything I have experienced in a restaurant and made the evening that much more enjoyable. Keep killing it and we will keep coming back!

Loved all the cocktails that we tried and the tacos were on point. Cheeseburger taco and crispy duck were to die for.

The service was very strange; our server pushed the "up sell" very overtly and it was off putting. The food did not come in the sequence we had specifically requested, and when the food did come it was not very tasty. The food was also very overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Our server clearly did not k ow the menu. Told her I was celiac and she said everything was good to go. Received our tacos and I noticed that one of them was breaded, she said it was ok for me to eat. THEN came back 2 mins later and said it was not gluten free. I almost ate it and almost got so so sick. Not ok.

This is one of my go to spots and every time has been amazing. Unfortunately this time our server was terrible. Barely came around, could never track her down, took forever to get anything, took about 30 mins to even get water. Food amazing as always though!!

We weren't allowed to use our open table cheques. They said they bounced and could not accept our $52.00 open table rewards. Also we were there for happy hour and having a good time and told settle our bill cause there was a reservation waiting for 6:30pm. There was no disclosure on time limit when we booked and sat at our table and were with friends we hadn't seen in a while. We were catching up and caught off guard/pressured to leave when we were spending almost $300.00 between all of us already and not ready to leave. They were pushy and aggresive with clearing our glasses and felt like we didn't matter, when we were spending a good amount of money there. We do not feel like valued customers and doubt we will be back, it seemed unprofessional and was more about the turn over than the experience.

Experience at the restaurant was good and I had a great night. However I had made a reservation for a table and never got one. We got placed at the bar and we’re told they were all full. This wasn’t a dealbreaker for us but it was slightly disappointing considering I made a reservation. Would still recommend

Food was average but the service was really good. Did find that it was a little louder than expected but it wasn’t terrible. There was no happy hour after 9 so that caught us by surprise as well. Overall it was a 3 star experience. Probably wouldn’t go back there again
