We had a customer dinner at this place. It is a nice location at the middle of the street under old trees and in a garden feeling. The food was average with tacos and typical mexican food. The guacamole was really good. We had a reservation which was not prepared at all. We had to wait in an empty restaurant. After a while it was running and getting better.

Good drinks, okay food, high prices. I guess high prices should be expected at a fancy California mall, but we were a bit underwhelmed. If we would have come at happy hour I think we would have been more pleased.

This is an outdoor seating only bar! They have live music and wonderful Margharitas! We didn't eat here, but had drinks only while waiting for our table at a restaurant adjacent. Great evening ambiance with lit trees and an open air bar!

The atmosphere here is great! Outdoor seating and on a gorgeous day like we had it was perfect! The tacos were something to write home about for sure! I LOVE LOVE tacos so for me this was a big one! The steak quesadillas were top notch too! Unfortunately we are tequila lovers and the cheapest shot of tequila was $11. We were on vacation so went ahead and tried it and it was pretty good. The pitchers of margaritas are pretty awesome too! Pricey but worth it if you have some extra cash to burn :)

A pretty place to have a drink and very light fare in a nice corner of San Jose. Ambiance is fine. But do not count on either efficient service or a large selection in the menu. And the Mexican dishes served are just OK. With disposable silverware to eat them with.
