There were 8 of us celebrating a late Fathers Day early dinner. Unlike the other reviews we only had to wait about 20 minutes, but it was just 4:30pm but on a Sunday. Loved the mole bean dip on chips, the free ones. My potato...More

This places serves traditional Mexican, in particular, Oaxaca cuisine! It is not a place that serves Americanized Mexican food, it serves authentic Oaxaca meals. Highly recommend the mole platter, from which one can sample many different types of mole at once. The mole negro is...More

Stopped here for a quick bite and drinks. Food was very good-super saucy just the way I like-service at the bar was quick, but, by far, the best thing I had was the La Canada. Super delicious.

Service was snail pace slow. The food was bland and tasteless. Maybe they should concentrate on flavors rather than on gigantic plate sizes. Believe me, I have eaten in some of the best Mexican restaurants in Mexico City, Acapulco, Cancun, LA, etc. This was NOT...More
