We took a chance on this one and it paid off! Small space, but decor is stylish and comfortable. Margaritas are made with fresh juices & are outstanding. We had the guacamole, shrimp taco & a chicken quesadilla...even though our server liked other dishes better. They were both fabulous. Fresh, great flavors, nicely sized and unique. Not your typical "Mexican"... More

Had dinner here one night on a work trip recently. The service was excellent, but I was not a big fan of the atmosphere, personally. It felt a little cramped inside. The food is great, and the staff was always on top of things. The food is technically Mexican food, but with a fancier spin on it.

The 4 of us got there early because of show later in the evening. Restaurant almost full, but they got us a table. Very simple interior, very efficient staff. Food was really great, we had 4 different courses and everybody agreed. Quality was significat above previous restarants in the area, and so is the prices. However definately worth the money... More

We ate here a few years ago and were reluctant to return, but ventured forth anyway. It is a cool place where you don't feel that you shouldn't be there if you aren't on some Forbes list. The food is great... though a tomato soup one of us had was very, very spicy... so don't be afraid to ask questions...... More

This food was the best!! We went here without a reservation, but they still had room for us! The service was very good. The restaurant was very nice to look at as well! I took pics and will post them after my vacation.

We went there with a goal to experience some mexican fusion food. Fusion yes, mexican not so much. Guacamole - so recommended here, was regular. There are thousand places that do it better. Chips as apetizer - well done, although with house bread was too much for two people. Tacos (shrimp and beef) were excellent. Spicy and well done. Good... More

We visited back in 2011. Had a great meal and wasn't the usual kind of thing (fajitas/enchiladas etc) Tried a few alternative things we wouldn't usually have and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The guacamole and nachos that were complimentary at the start were awesome and fresh. We returned a second night and again we're not disappointed. Prices were a little expensive... More
