Very bad service. Took awhile for wait staff to take our order. Margaritas and water for all 3 and dinner entrees for 3. 15 minutes later nothing. Restaurant was not busy. We finally saw our margaritas on the bar counter where they sat until the waitress brought out our meals. We had to ask her for the drinks and remind... More

We eat here every year during DragonCon, and the staff are always so kind - we usually have a group of between 10 and 20 people, randomly wandering in and out and ordering drinks and food, and they manage it so well! The food is pretty awesome too!!

Dragoncon comes around every year, and I give a lot of slack to wait staffs for delays since it's such a busy time...so long as crowds are being controlled. Much like other reviewers on this page, I saw multiple servers standing around not looking for anything to do while others hustled around trying to get tables bussed, while a large... More

Its DragonCon weekend so they should have been anticipating a crowd. People are waiting in line. Tables are empty all over the restaurant. Waitresses and hostesses are twiddling their thumbs. I don't know if the they were trying to manage the load on the kitchen or if they just didn't see all those empty tables. Our food and beverages took... More

This restaurant is above fast food, but still economical. We had a great, basic, Mexican dinner. They did mess up 2 of our orders, but were able to provide the right order quickly.

As soon as we walked we should have turned around and walked out as the host was so rude. He told us it would be about a 45 minute wait but there were empty tables all around the room. We stood close to the host stand and within 5 minutes one of the waitresses came by and asked how many... More

Went to dinner. Staff setting up large table, which understandably takes time. We do expect however, when person at front desk comes back to make eye contact, even say 'be with you in a minute'. But no, comes back and ignores us and others. We walked out, as did another couple. Here if conference - will do best to make... More

I was surprised to see so many bad reviews since I found this place quite nice. Location is great, it has nice decor and vibe. If its not too hot, balcony seating is pleasant. Ok, food was average but it was tasty and generous, and prices more than reasonable for the location. Service was just ok. I would recommend to... More
