    Although service was a little slow, we still really enjoyed our time here the food was awesome and at one point the music was turned up and there was a dancing celebration going on and it was really fun to be a part of it.

    It was great! Except for date night we were very close together to other huge parties yet far from one another at our table. It was hard to hear each other talk, definitely would request the pod chairs on the first floor next time for date nights😁

    This was probably the 3rd time I've visited and each time has been great! This time, it was Cole that stole the show! He never left us too long before check ins, was eager to give thoughts or suggestions on entrees/food/drinks, and was just all around a great server. My only complaint is that I put on the Open Table resy that we were celebrating a birthday. I even communicated with the restaurant through the Open Table messaging to confirm that they would do something for the birthday/would acknowledge it; however, I still had to advise Cole of it... he was never made aware from the reservation... so if I hadn't mentioned it to him, it would've been missed/forgotten.

    Actually just cousins getting together. We enjoyed every morsel of food. The server was attentive and answered any questions we had about the menu. We met some nice people, at the table next to ours, and we all had drinks and fun conversation. The manager greeted us at the end of our meal and talked to us about our visit. We will definitely be back. I love the Enchiladas Suizas and the Guac Trio.

    The margaritas and food were excellent. We were seated in the second floor corner and the speaker was directly above us. We asked for the music to be turned down and they did. However, it was still too loud to hear each other talk. Great place for food but difficult to have a conversation.

    It’s a cool happening spot. Hard to get a reservation. The food was amazing. Would like more clearly marked what is for vegetarians. Also wasn’t clear about tip. Our bill was split 3 ways (which was nice for them to do) and it said additional tip. So we couldn’t see itemized check so it wasn’t clear if tip was already included. Didn’t want to not tip so I feel like we doubled tipped. Which is great for the waiter…. Was an overall good experience. Will be thinking about those tamales for a long time. 😉

    The atmosphere is unique, colorful and exciting. Where we were seated we had a view of the kitchen and it looked very clean. The owner or GM was present to ensure all guests were given a pleasant experience. Our server Jen was incredibly warm and pleasant. She exuded excitement about the menu and it being our first experience. She smiled, made eye contact and took the time to explain the menu and some recommendations. The food was out of this world. This place understands you eat with your eyes first! Edible flowers graced our plates with pickled red onion, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, the garden of Eden on our plate. The food met every expectation that the eyes introduced. Duck confit flautas, Mexican pizza with pork shank, the Mahi Mahi with sweet corn rice...delish. The churro truck was a cute companion to dessert. This was the perfect birthday spot for memorable upscale mexican!

    It was my birthday, my husband took me. We thought we were going to be on second level but ended up at the entry in the swing chairs. It was a little cold when people would come in but the food, drinks and server made it great!! The chairs were fun! We had a wonderful time and are already reserved to come back Valentine’s Day but this time on second floor which we are excited for!
