“Great place to have adrink and chill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is a great restaurant to visit when the weather is good outside They have a wonderful space in back You can have a drink from the many original choices including several margaritas The small plates are a fusion of Mexican and intermediate food AS the sun starts to set you would swear you are in another country either mexico or some place in the middle east.

“Patio Dinning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

It is a great Brazilian restaurant. Very popular. Upwardly mobile people. The summer outdoor patio is wonderful. My experience of the food is so-so. It is good, however, IMHO, not outstanding. NTL, it is a very nice place to go.

“Good food and pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Food is great, excellent quality and well prepared. The staff is well educated regarding food sensitivities and goes out of the way to accommodate your needs. The outdoor patio in warmer months has a nice atmosphere. The inside pf the restaurant can be a bit noisy. Try the Prickly Pear margaritas. They are delicious.

“Upscale Latin American Cusine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Try the Sunday brunch and get a Bloody Mary. It's so pretty you'll want to take a picture of it and send it to your friends. Fro evening meals I would recommend the ceviches and the scallops. There is also a delicious vegetarian squash dish. All the margaritas are good. Go when the weather warms up and sit out back in the outdoor garden.

“Best Mexican in Oak Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a great suburban restaurant. Competes with those in the city. Fun atmosphere. Thoughtful atmosphere. Huge variety of sophisticated margaritas and other drinks (not the sweet stuff out of a slurpy machine!). Great patio in back for summer dining. Among my local favorites that gets visited time and time again. Good music on weekends.
