Family of three with two old friends without reservations (can't make them anyway) on a Tuesday night. Although busy for a Wednesday and a bit put off by hustle and bustle of the entrance we waited only ten minutes before being seated. HUGE menu. Although arguably too large there should be something for everyone ranging from Pizza and Lasagna to Croquettes and Fried Plantains. Simple Beer and Wine list with pretty good options. Service was standard California with friendly and attentive servers ready to "keep things moving along". Excepting the entrance (which feels like coming in the Kitchen) the atmosphere is nicely decorated lending a mellow and relaxed feeling. The absolute highlights are their grilled items, specifically the Coulotte Steak "Picanha". Combined with the sides of Yuca flower and the black beans make a fantastic meal. We will be back.
