Great Happy Hour

Met Friends for happy hour. If you want a seat go early. We got there about 4 p.m. and had a selection of seating in the bar. By 5:30 pm people were standing waiting for a place to sit and as soon as you started to gather your items to leave they are right there to get your seats. food... read more

The waitress was fantastic and the food was likewise great. The darker-colored salsa was unique and amazing and the sour cream and chicken enchiladas I had were fantastic.

This restaurant was recommended by a local guest service representative at The Hyatt nearby this summer. Mexican food is always a great choice for my sister and I, as she is a vegetarian and the options are usually above average. We were both blown away. My shrimp tacos were by far the best tacos I have had in America. We... More

They do an excellent job with their enchiladas and their carnitas. High quality fare consistently prepared at a reasonable price. After a long day it is just too easy to say "lets go to Salsa Brava for dinner."

Fun people, cheerful atmosphere, with indoor and outdoor seating. The food is uniformly good with a varied menu. The prices are reasonable and I have never had to wait more than a few minutes. They don't take reservations, but you can call ahead and get priority if you do. I hesitated for a moment prior to giving in 5 stars... More

This is a restaurant I frequent. Always get great food. This visit was no different. However, the service was marginal (not slow, just unskilled waitress). As we always do on our visits to this restaurant, we requested the habanero/pineapple salsa to go with our chips. I was surprised and disappointed that this time we were charged an extra dollar for... More

We live close, so this has always been a favorite for a Friday night dinner; good chips and margaritas, ok food. A good place to talk and unwind. However, this week, it was different. Midweek, so no crowd. The problem was our waitress. I guess she thought we were there to experience her. We had a lot to discuss, but... More

Service was slow, waitress was definately in the weeds most of the night and had a hard time keeping up with all her tables.Food was below average. I think they use instant rice, and the corn tortillas were dry. Just not true/authentic Mexican Food. On the... More

Went with 3 friends with the intent to catch up so arrived at 5pm. Told our server that we didn't want to order food right away but wanted to do drinks for a bit. Which we did but not without constant interruptions asking if we would like to order yet. Not a place for a nice leisurely dining experience. Food... More
