    The atmosphere is great first off - upon entering we could tell it was the real deal: more so than the multi-colored, fun typeface of their logo would suggest. Our server was great. She made some really great suggestions, made a special attempt to ensure our six year old daughter had a great meal, and just overall did an excellent job on a busy night. She was a special accent to what turned out to be one of the best Mexican meals we’ve had. Our guacamole, entrees, and even the ice cream were truly wonderful. Bottom line is this is an upscale, modern Mexican joint with fantastic service, and a place we would go out of our way to return to. Highly recommended.

    Decor was beautiful and interesting. The energy was high but the background music was very loud that it made talking and hearing a challenge. The tables are a bit closer in some areas of the restaurant so you can hear neighboring conversations. I feel that people wouldn’t have to talk so loudly if the music were at a normal level. The food was delicious but pricey. Drinks were good but again, pricey for their size. It was very cold with the air conditioning blowing hard, but we asked if they could turn it down (or off since it was in the 50’s) and they did. Overall, we would go back. Our server was Jenny and she was great!

    The food was not bad. A bit over priced. The ambiance was beautiful. However the noise level was insane. We heard the woman’s WHOLE conversation next to us. It was crazy-and she was loud. Customers should be reminded to be aware of others sitting close to them. The waitress was VERY pleasant.

    Definitely seems like a “social media” restaurant. Very hard to talk here, because the music is very loud and rooms are not cushioned anywhere so the sound just bounces off everywhere. Food was ok,but service was slow(assuming due to a small kitchen and custom serving plates that need to be bussed from tables to use for new orders). Very friendly and professional but slow. If you are looking for a good place to take pictures with your friends to post on social media, hands down this environment is the best for backgrounds etc. I would go back with a group of friends for appetizers and drinks but overall I would not recommend to go for dates.

    The place is beautiful. Our server was wonderful. The food was good but different than the former location and much more $$$. Guacamole still awesome. The music was extremely loud where we were seated in the bar area. My margarita tasted like limeade, I was disappointed in that the most.

    Of course the vibes are perfect!! The managers and staff went out of their way to accommodate me and my friends for my birthday dinner! The food was really good! If you are booking for a party of 6 or more make sure you read the fine print and make absolute sure your guest are coming!! When booking it says that the card will ONLY be charged for a no-show not a no show per person!! Don’t let them play you! I didn’t like that all guest had to be present before being seated.. My reservation was scheduled at 8:30 and they failed to let us know they closed at 9. But they did wait for us to leave as it also states that parties of 6 or more are reserved up to 3 hours.

    We really enjoyed our first experience at Guaca Mole! Our server, Stephanie was wonderful. She was attentive, kind, and gave great recommendations. The cocktails and the food were both beautiful and delicious. I especially loved the smoked tequila old fashioned. I love what they've done with the space, it is so vibrant! We will definitely be coming back.

    Friends from out of town came in for their anniversary. First time ever being disappointed by Gaucamole and we were so excited to show the place off. We were seated on the rooftop when I booked a week in advance. The rooftop would had been n I’d had it had regular tables. These looked like surf boards and sat really low. It took forever to get any service at all points of the evening. We had to ask for refills. Our friends tacos all came out on a metal stick. I’m used to a beautiful presentation for food there. Dinner took forever. Service was so lacking. Not sure what happened last night.

    Pulsar have been more impressed with our experience here. From the moment we walked in the door to when we left, we felt welcome and loved on! We were greeted by the General Manager, Tim, who answered any and all questions about both the city and the restaurant. Our server, Fabia (I really hope I spelled that right!) was AMAZING! She patiently answered all of our questions and gave fantastic recommendations. Presentation and flavor of the dishes were all over the top and blew us away. Each was more spectacular than the last. We had several meals while in town and while all were great, we are still talking about this meal.
