    The menu is fairly small, but the food is fabulous! The tortilla chips and guacamole were the best I’ve had! Shrimp enchilada was also amazing. Great margaritas. The place was packed. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a huge party, which made it pretty loud and slowed the service a bit, but overall a great experience. We will go back!

    The guacamole with mango and crab and house made chips is truly outstanding! The margaritas with glasses half salted and half unsalted are the perfect accompaniment. This is upscale food and ambiance.

    Had a reservation for a Birthday dinner, the gentleman who checked us in I’m assuming was the manager. He expressed he knew we were celebrating a birthday, and we asked if we could get drinks at the bar while we waited for our table. Bartender was very nice and drinks were great. Once we sat no one came over to our table for 20 minutes. We were the only table outside. 2 tables sat after us outside and were greeted with service. My mom went inside to let them know that we haven’t received service yet. This must’ve annoyed them because our service was poor and slow. When we asked for the check it was dropped off, no plates were cleared and no dessert was offered for my friends Birthday. We payed and left. As someone who worked in service industry 14 years this was disappointing. First and last time going to Mole.
