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.

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

I used to go to this restaurant frequently when I worked in the city and this evening it seemed like a great alternative to the restaurants my friend and I usually gravitate to.

This place has a contemporary Mexican food with an interesting twist both in presentation and ingredients. The good news is that it works very well! Go for the frozen margarita to start the meal on the right side, and all the dishes we tried were very good.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The service was great and the meals were brought out quickly. We loved the décor and warm feel of the place. Would highly recommend you enjoy a meal here if you are in New York.

I followed the recommendation for three courses given by the Rough Guide and I was very happy with the selection. The amount of food was just right and the Margarita (frozen) was superb

Went to the one on 9th Ave & W 39th St New York, NY 10018. Had fabulous food and drinks (unlimited mimosas for only $9 during breakfast). Great stop before seeing a show!
