Downtown Tex Mex and a bit too touristy for my group. The food was average, tasty salsa and chips, a waitress who really push the drinks and appetizers more than she should have. There was a bachelorette party going on that made conversation with our group of six almost impossible. The food was OK, what can you do with an enchilada and refried beans. The hotel concierge raved, but none of the dinners our group of six had was anything to rave about. Good yes. Rave, no.

It took forever to get noticed when walking up to the bar...no smiles, no conversation...almost like the staff was put out to "wait" on people. Food was not that great & the waitor was not friendly either...felt like cattle...herd 'em in, herd 'em out! Pricey for the service & quality of food! Valet parking was the best experience here.

We make a point to dine at this restaurant when in Dallas each year. it is within walking distance of the DCC. We have tried the salmon and the beef medallions, both of which were very good. Happy hour until 6 pm with a variety of discounted drinks.

We recently made a trip to Dallas and thought we'd give this place a try. Pictures looked trendy on the internet. It's in the middle of downtown and is 3 stories. The bar at the top is really cool! You can enjoy good margaritas, chips and salsa while looking out into downtown. As for the food...it's super fancy Mexican cuisine. Not quite what I'm used to. It was OK - not great, but not terrible. If you're into gourmet Mexican, you will love it. I'm used to rustic Tex-Mex so it was quite different. Waitress was very nice. It's definitely worth a try.
