First time I was here it was new. The food/drinks were incredible! There was yummy lime cilantro jalapeño in a bottle, added a yummy tasters kick to anything and everything! I believe if you're gonna do a dish, it should be right. So an Ahi Tuna Taco should melt in your mouth. It had an inedible fiber down the middle... More

Most hotel restaurants offer the typical American fare. The farm to table fresh Mexican food with a twist was amazing and the service was excellent. I was frequently waited on by Ashley she was always ready to give her recommendations that were right on. Very good/friendly service. You could sit inside or out they even had heaters for the cooler... More

I was staying at the Clarendon hotel and almost overlooked this place. I despise eating at hotel restaurants but when I asked a cabbie for a great local place he suggested Gallo Blanco. I the there twice during my stay. The food & cocktails were awesome. I don't like tex-mex slop but this place is NOT that. The small plates... More

After being spoiled by many places serving Mexican food this place sucked. Everything alacart you want chips or rice & beans its gonna cost you. I had Fish Tacos but were they worth price? Takes at least 3 to make a meal. Chips were cold etc. Inside was noisy so sat outside under heaters

If it weren't for the food being so good and affordable, the service and lack of cleanliness would probably guarantee this restaurant was closed. If they focused on these two components the place would become one of my favorite restaurants in all of Arizona. Still, it's a local favorite and attached to the coolest hotel in the state...

On vacation. Great upscale casual relaxed vibe. Music a little loud inside, so we ate on the patio with our personal heater, on a nice but brisk evening. Shrimp Ceviche and mojito a great starter. Tomatillo sauce had just a wee bit of heat and lotta yummy character. We split the 1/2 ckn dinner. It was moist and very tasty,... More

The highlight was definitely the Picoso (a muddled cocktail with pineapple infused reposed, lime and jalapeño -- like holy wow my face off, yeah? It was hard not to order them one right after another, but I was responsible and cut it off after the first one :) Decent food -- the guac seemed fresh, my carna asada taco and... More
