The service was excellent, probably due to the fact that me and my husband were the only ones there. We had a Groupon for this spot and decided to head over on Dia de Los Muertos, before attending any festivities. If it wasn't for the group on, I would have walked out after seeing the prices!! Everything was over 12 dollars and portions were extremely small. I guess they are trying to be "gourmet mexican" but it is not working for me, especially since I am Mexican and can make this stuff myself for a much better price!
The owner did bring out complimentary bowls of "sopa de calabacitas" or squash puree, which was tasty, but when the entrees arrived, we were rather disappointed. I ordered the "Enmoladas Tricolor (14.00), or sampler platter and substituted the white mole for the almond mole, which my waitress assured would be spicy. My husband ordered the mancha manteles(16.00), which was supposed to be the spiciest mole they served.
The almond mole almost tasted like cinnamon toast crunch, it was rather off-putting, the other two were not that much better, I had to smother the plate in salsa to make it appetizing. The mancha mantles, was not very spicy at all, it has a slight smoke flavor, the major flaw here were the microscopic pieces of pork it came with.
After a rather blah experience, me husband and I agreed we would only return if we had another groupon, and we would order from the traditional dishes, rather than the mole section.
