“Awful service, good food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

After ordering, our waiter came back to the table 3 times to confirm the orders, and still managed to bring out the wrong dishes. 3 out of 4 appetizers weren't what we ordered, and one of the soups they brought out didn't even appear to be on the menu anywhere. They made no effort to "make it right," or take any of the items off the bill, as you would expect in most nice restaurants, and we had to ask 3 times to get the bill. The food, when we finally got the right dishes, was excellent and beautifully presented, but dealing with the waitstaff was so frustrating that it really took a lot away from the whole experience. I would definitely not ever go to this restaurant again.

“Exceptional.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012 via mobile

Precisely prepared dishes. Adequate portions. Extraordinary flavor. Minor details in the table laying prevented my dinner to be a flawless experience, but it was extraordinary. The recommendations from the waiter were very good. Don't miss the Fresh Tuna "tostadas", but eat them carefully, if you eat the pepper on top it becomes a very hot experience, if you set it apart it will only bring a delicate yet spicy touch to the plate.

“It's OK, could be great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

Just one thing clear: this is a good restaurant, it's the only restaurant in Culiacan that can be considered High Cuisine. The service was good, but what really matters is the food. We ordered three dishes and only liked one, the other two lacked taste. Also the waiter didn't know what Grand Mainer was and had to go and ask the bartender twice, they killed my margarita.

It's the most expensive restaurant in the city, which would not be a problem if the food's taste is fantastic.
