From the professional and friendly valet service by a young attendant name Peter thru the great service and food at Mustang's we had a wonderful dining experience.

Our waiter Philip who was from Brazil and the young bus boy were friendly and very attentive. The manager Patrick was terrific made it a point to stay involved with our dining experience.

If there is a critique the food takes a tad longer too long to deliver after the order. But the quality was perfect once we got it. It appears that the kitchen is quiet a distance from the actual restaurant.

I would suggest the kitchen staff pick up their pace, they need to cut 4+ minutes of their end. This would help offset the travel time to and from the restaurant. Also they could use a cocktail server to offset the wait time, which would be a win win for Mustangs and their guests.

Overall we'd go back again despite the wait time. Estancia has a great and friendly staff, 5 star food and a mean tequila. Just remember do not be in a rush, relax. I am sure they'll will work out the timing issues.

This is the second time I've eaten dinner at this restaurant and I hope it won't be the last! The food quality is outstanding and the environment fun and relaxing.

The food and service were terrific. We ate there twice during our visit and were very pleased. I had the braised beef and it was yummy. My friend had the red, white and blue salad and loved it.

We loved sitting by the fire outside. The staff was amazing and the food was even better even though we had just a light dinner and a little dessert.
