Food is great and cutting edge but be sure to spend some time in the bar! Phenomenal selection of tequilas! Get the butterscotch one! All Barrett sets are great and knowledgeable!

The restaurant is behind a velvet curtain. Hiding a multitude of .......! It is dark, dingy and also very difficult to read the menu. Our waitress and helpers were helpful and efficient. The food however was tasteless and horrid. It all had been pre-cooked and...More

Beautiful 'day of the dead' style decor and the food was the best Mexican food I've ever had. (Would have thought is was closed when we arrived as the shutters were down but the door was open). Would go back for sure if I visit...More

I love this place! Calamari is always on point (and a steal @ $8), guacamole is always fresh, and the entrées are big enough to share! Service with a smile....how it should be.

The atmosphere is unusual but don't let that fool you. Just a couple blocks off Hollywood Boulevard this is a place not to be missed. Each time I have gone we have had great service, great food, and great cocktails.

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
