Having stumbled into this place because there wasn't a waiting list, should have been a warning. The Tacos Dorado isn't a fish Taco, but a chicken taco in hard blue shell with fresh cheese. The tacos were average size but the accompanying Rice and beans were in very small portions. The rice was bland and the beans were pureed. The... More

The Sunday buffet is a very quiet scene inside, with the option to eat out on the patio. GREAT food and flavors. Servings are small, so you can try everything - mini chicken burritos, seafood quiche, veggie chile relleno, poached salmon, crab claws, various salads and fruits, slow roasted pork, plus of course bacon, egggs, french toast, etc. At $28...

The owners of this restaurant created an excellent menu & beautiful environment! This is our 7 day a week & 1st choice whether we are dining with children, young adults, friends, family, or Seniors. Fun at night dressed up for Theatre or during the day doing errands. Open for lunch when other restaurants are not serving.

Unless it is being cooked by Rick Bayless or Arron Sanchez the prices here don't warrant the end results. It is a beautiful restaurant, but the prices are just not justified for the quality of the meal.

Okay food and experience. Try other places first. Nice variety but have had better. More attention to quality, not quantity

If you are looking for rice and beans don't bother. This is the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. The location and restaurant are beautiful and great service, Thanks Joel but it is a little pricey. I had the best rib eye tacos and my friend had a chile shrimp relleno. They make a nice fuss for your birthday... More

Located in a picturesque outdoor area called "The Lakes" & nestled amongst Unami Burger and P.F. Changs is a gem of a Mexican eatery. Decorated on heavy velvet red booths ,whimsical tiles and heart chandeliers the eye candy decor does not disappoint-nor does the cuisine. The menu is a lovely one of tradicional dishes with modern presentation and quality-(not insane... More

This restaurant has a lovely location, beautiful decor, friendly staff, enormous margaritas and surprisingly bland food. The homemade guacamole was fresh, but bland. The chili rellenos were hot (with heat) and bland. The chips crispy and the salsa - wait for it - bland. So, it's a toss-up. Kind of like a sopapilla - puffed up and full of air.

Not your typical Mexican dishes. Loved everything. Scallop tacos were like candy! Blue corn tacos were great. Awesome margaritas. Good atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.
