The drinks and food here are as creative as the interior decor. I recommend the table side guacamole and one of their house specialty drinks. The outdoor dining is wonderful in the spring summer and fall. The staff is friendly and you'll leave with a smile.

After a rocky start confirming our reservation, the problem was solved. We arrived for dinner and were seated immediately and the service was flawless. The food was delicious and our evening was wonderful. We enjoy dining here and will definitely return again and again.

Not only is the food incredibly good, but the presentation is as unique as the food...many dishes are presented with tableside flambe...and of course the hot rocks with your steak is really great, because you can get every bite exactly how you'd like it. I've been twice...and the first time the hot rock was very hot and it was perfect.... More

Delicious filet on a hot rock. Cooked to perfection every time and is paired with a delicious, flavorful peppercorn sauce lit with flames if preferred. Don't miss the ARROZ CON CREMA E RAJAS as a side! Yummy, cheesy and flavorful. The 4 cheese ham mac & cheese is awesome too. Be sure to begin your meal with the table side... More

Place is great but not the long with if you have no reservations. Food is good but a little bit too costly and I was disappointed that the drink I ordered was not how I wanted and they had to ask me multiple times .

First time eating here and I was pleasantly surprised. Went based off of other reviews and wasn't disappointed. Portions are large, shared an app, salad and one of their famous steaks with my lady and we still have leftovers. Will come back the next time we're in town.

Took my daughter for her birthday. The restaurant is beautiful! The atmosphere was casual yet classy. The table side guacamole was yummy. The cotton candy "birthday cake was something I had never seen before. The wait staff was excellent. However, the food was not impressive, we took most of it home and ended up throwing it out a few days... More
