“Very Nice Place”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

The food here is very good. The specialty drinks are also very tasty. I sat at the bar on the second floor and had some amazing service from the bar staff. This place is great for a romantic evening of just for a few cocktails.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and I have been to this restaurant several times. The food and service are always excellent. The guacamole that is made tableside is excellent. They also have a great selection of drinks, specializing in Margaritas.

“Great place for dinner with friends/coworkers”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Dined here twice with colleagues while attending a week-long conference. Lively but not too noisy ambience, perfect for an early dinner with colleagues or friends. Seemed to be a nice spot for drinks later on also. Everyone enjoyed the food which was way more interesting than standard tex-mex - but still included enchlada and fajita variants - and neither 100% traditional mexican. The overall approach is easy-going. We felt very welcome.

Great location in the heart of all the bars and restaurants. Great ambiance and decor. Looks very upscale and fancy but it's not reflected in the price. I expected it to be a very upscale eatery with prices to reflect that but I was pleasantly surprised that it was very reasonable. The margaritas and guacamole were a great way to start the meal. Everything that was ordered at our table was great. Cheese enchiladas, fish tacos and chicken tacos.

I wish there was one in Southern California (OC) because I would be there all the time!

“Mexican goes uptown...”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

First, this is a beautiful restaurant. Well designed and very attractive. Then there is the drinks menu ...Latin with a few twists...pomegranate mojito anyone? Killer guacamole made at your table. Then the entrees are all fresh ingredients done in an innovative style. This is not In the same universe as the neighborhood Mexican restaurant, so don't expect the prices to be either. Recommended.
