My wife and I got the taco flights with margaritas. The margaritas were surprisingly delicious with the right amount of alcohol. The sass platter was anther thing we really enjoyed. All four salsas were very well made. Lastly, the shrimp and lamb tacos were to die for. We will definitely return here again.

We called in on a Saturday, without a reservation, and sat at the bar. We shared three soft tacos, choosing three different fillings (beef, lamb with mint, chicken). Our friend chose a sandwich that arrived with salad and chips. The service was attentive and we were very happy with our lunch.

Live music, great drinks, tasty and varied food choices. Love the separate room in the back as well as shared tables. Bar is great for hanging out. Margaritas are so good, you can't have just one.

We really didn't know what to expect of this restaurant but the food was fresh, different, and incredibly tasty. We ordered the taco flight. The shrimp and salmon were our favorite but the carnitas and lamb were excellent too. The margaritas were also very good and not watered down. We'll be back to try some of the other things on...

I don't typically go to "high-end Mexican" restaurants, but found myself here for lunch with a couple of girlfriends last weekend and it was great! We enjoyed the retro hanging lights as well as the rest of the interior decor and the service was very good. We started off with the guacamole and salsa flight which was both creative and... More

This restaurant is decorated beautifully. I really liked the food and drinks as well. I had tacos and they were yummy. The service is a little different but fine. Would go back.

The 4 different guacs were really the same guac with 4 different toppings, so that was a disappointment; but the rest of the meal was great. The corn on the cob with aioli, cotija cheese & spices was really tasty, chile relleno was great, and the tequila ole!
