Great place to stop in for a drink at the bar, a flight of 3 premium tequilas that you can sip & enjoy are my favourite choice on the menu. Good shaken margaritas as well. Haven't tried the food yet but will do on one of my future visits.

Dinner out after work. We took advantage of ordering "tapas style" to try more dishes. Loved the mushroom flatbread and my drink (whiskey with habanero) the most.

Reminded us of Frontera. The unique and authentic flavors were amazing. Wait staff quick and knowledgable and helpful. Outside seating and fun inside.

Server was excellent and handled our large group expertly. A lot of chips. That's all I'm gonna say Guoc was outstanding. Go there for the fun. Not necessarily the food

My daughter chose this for her birthday because we had heard great things about this place, but I really don't understand what people love so much. It has a fun atmosphere and great chips, but other than that it was a huge disappointment. The guacamole is average at best. Not bad, just not at all special. The chips make eating... More

We ate here at the recommendation of a relative - and we owe her big time ! It was Saturday night, and it was cheerful, and noisy with friends meeting again after the summer break. Our server, Morgan , was attentive without being intrusive and we noticed how other servers seemed to be the same. We never felt rushed, even... More

I met a couple friends for dinner and EVERYTHING we ordered was DELICIOUS!!! We ordered 4-5 different items. The shrimp tacos were my favorite and the guacamole was to die for. We ordered 2 different ones,but I can't remember which ones.

I had not been here in about a year…what a mistake! We had an outstanding meal the other night, and will be back soon. I started with the tuna tartare bowl that was almost like salad... Tuna tossed in a very spicy adobo sauce, cucumbers, slivered mango, thinly sliced red onion, a few other vegetables I believe and some Plaintain... More

I've been here a handful of times and have always had great food and drinks! Definitely a place to go with friends, share dishes right in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. It can be loud with everyone having a good time, but have not had an issue carrying a conversation with friends. Staff has been friendly and service great.... More
