If you love tequila, or want to learn....

Didn't eat here but really enjoyed the tequila bar with a fantastic and knowledgeable bartender. Excellent selection and great atmosphere. Small hole-in-the-wall spot with amazing selection. Never thought to hang tequila from ceiling with bungee cords... Definitely recommend it for a fun... read more

The restaurant is small and noisy. My margarita was terrific but my guests' mojitos were not as strong as they would have liked. Our waitress was friendly but it took almost an hour to get our entrees. My mahi tacos were ok - poor, I'd say. The fish wasn't particularly tasty. The chips and salsa were delicious. But I wouldn't... More

This was our first visit to this small restaurant on Park Avenue, located in what could be called the restaurant district. It identifies itself as a Latin Fusion Bistro and Cantina, and has many of our favorite Mexican items on the menu. We both had the enchiladas mole, which was delicious. The selection of Mexican beers is quite complete; we... More

First time here and I enjoyed every minute! Great drinks & apps! Tiny restaurant but a lot of choices to choose from. (Every kind of tequila imaginable.) We ordered chips with salsa & guacamole for apps. The fresh salsa was my favorite! Also, ordered a "Pumpkin Pie Margarita" which was amazing!! Definitely would refer anyone here to enjoy a nice...

Dorado's twist on Mexican is arty and fun - some unusual flavors but definitely a cool taste sensation, and pretty presentation too. Service friendly and quick, and a nicely decorated interior. Outside seating is great in warm weather.

I was in town for my birthday and my family took us to Dorado. Great service. I had the skillet enchilada which was excellent. I'll be back.

It's very small inside. The Mexican food is average, but price is above average. Overall, it's a soso experience and I am not sure I would go back again.
