The guacamole is awesome! It's made right in front of you. Other than that the meal was pretty forgetable.

It was a dark and rainy night - okay, it was 4:00...the place was as empty as a tomb. We inquired about Happy Hour and were told - you have to sit at the bar for Happy Hour deals...did I mention we were the only 5 people in the joint? The 4 stools at the bar were by the door and it was raining and cold. We asked for a booth...all were available. Note: Margaritas are $13 each.
If we sat at the bar - they would be far less. We ordered 5 Margaritas...and the Guac...made table side by a guy with zero personality or grace. Cheap Chips outa the bag. Average, at best. Had to ask waitress for addl chips.
We were so under-whelmed. Will not return. Not a soul entered while we were there...
We had dined at Left Bank for lunch and had a fabulous meal...live and learn. Ole!

Can't get this scene from West Wing out of my head.
They make Guacamole, right in front of you. A true LA experience... Right here in the Valley. It is quite good. So if you are remotely into tacos, dips, guacamole and Margaritas - lead your money right here

Dinner was good, but not fantastic. And was very expensive. Ambiance was nice though. Good guacamole.

I had dinner with my family at this joint on October 7th of this year and had a very disappointing experience. Most of the dishes were insipid, flat and flavorless. The service was poor. The “Sopa de tortilla” and “Pachuga rellena de huitalacoche” were tasteless. Their “Chile relleno” and Tortita de papa” were tolerable. The “Guacamole” was OK but I later discovered that they charged $3.00 for the chips that came with it in addition to $10 for Guacamole. The restaurant is way overpriced for the food quality and the service. The place should be totally avoided. I would not recommend it to anyone.
