Overall, I thought the food here was just okay. Not bad at all, but not anything amazing. Fairly reasonable, and the decor is trendy. I also thought the service was really good.

It seems everyone is cutting back these days, as we anticipated getting the nice basket of chips that usually comes gratis, but none arrived. We sat at the bar, it was 5:00 on a Thursday evening. The place was nearly empty. From the get go I wasn't liking the bartender who was also to be our server. He seemed completely... More

The service was excellent, however the food was unsatisfactory. I ordered the skirt steak with pinto beans and rice. The food was tasteless and bland the grilled skirt steal tasted as if the grill needed cleaning It was barely warm. My drink, which was suppose to be a cilantro/mango margarita had no liquor or at least I could not taste... More

First and foremost let me say that I'm epicurean at the least. A restaurant's ambiance means as much to me as it's food, and having over 20 years in the food industry, I tend to have high standards. So it's a rarity for me when I find a location that has both great food and a great ambiance. Let me... More

Third visit in three months - each time the food seems to be better and better while the service is ALWAYS excellent. This is a place that definitely cares about the quality of their restaurant.

Try the guac! The special kind they had was a bacon and sage! It was awesome and a new twist to ur typical guacamole! Also I had a mango and cilantro mojito..fresh! But the best part was the braised short ribs with grits and kale...superb! And I don't even like grits but these were awesome!

A great addition to the local dining scene. Try the Brazilian stew or the Cuban pork, with churros for desert. The salads are much tastier than the average, too.

I have eaten there on more than one occasion. After sitting in the outdoor seating area for over 15 minutes, I finally went inside to get a menu and waitress. They were apparently understaffed. On another occasion, I sat at the bar. Again, service was slow. Once I received my food, no one came back to ask me if it... More

I have had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant twice this month and the food just keeps getting better. The first time I ordered the El Cubano sandwich and I had the yucca fries with it instead. The yucca fries were awesome because they were crispy on the outside but when you bit into them it was like you... More
