“When it was Good it is verry good, but when it was bad it was...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2011

Fun setting with a shady, Spanish/Mexican vibe. Had an excellent brunch, so returned for what is reported as up scale dinner. Expensive and kind of ordinary. Sauces tasted like warmed up bullion cubes...

Service is quite good, but drinks and dinner were pricey.

Keep it to Breakfast, brunch and happy hour.

“Delightful Surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

The restaurant looked like a fun place and turned out to have good food and good service. Lots of choices on entrees and reasonable prices were a bonus.

“Terrible service, very greasy Kobe burger”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

The waiter was friendly but probably inexperienced, the place was maybe 40% full, we waited 15 minutes to order, he never refilled our glasses, other girls came and go to place the tables, nobody to give you more water.
He would bring one drink for the other table, then one napkin, three trips later, and never checked on any of his tables for refills-orders- bring the check, etc...
It was a pretty bad service.

The Kobe burger made me sick for the night, due to quality? grease?
The only good items were their Flautas and Crab Cakes.

Not a place I would go back. The food - service are not worth their prices.

“delicious food and very nice setting/decor!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who enjoyed it recently on her vacation. We got there early - a little before 5:00 so ended up sitting in the bar area but it still was very nice. we had just finished hiking and were starving and did not want to wait until 5:00 to sit in the main dining room. The service was great and our food was really good. We both had the spinach salad which was great! my husband had the fish tacos and I had the halibut - really really delicious! We would definitely go back.

“Pretty good flavors”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2011

Its probably best to sit in "the pond" when you visit here. We sat in "the reserve room" which was a bit overly-formal for what it actually was. The guac is made table-side, but its mashed with a fork in a ceramic baking dish. Not authentic. The shrimp tamales were unique: grilled shrimp, peppers and onions served in a chipotle cream sauce over a plain tamale. That was the highlight. The salmon was also pretty good and a unique taste over creamy risotto.
