“Our favorite restaurant , bar none !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

We went there this afternoon because today is "National Margarita Day" and they have the best margaritas we've ever had. And, in addition, the food & service is awesome. Our server, Andres met our every request promptly & with a smile & Pedro, one of the owners, always makes us feel special!! Great experience.

Ate there on Valentines Day and thoroughly enjoyed everything. The almond-encrusted oysters were exceptionally delicious. Service was excellent also

“great seafood but beware of parking nightmare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

We have been coming here for years before BA was popular when Veracruz was tiny. We love Pescado Xanath. We've always parked in the lot next to Veracruz but they changed it to valet parking only.
We were able to park on the street 2 times but this last Saturday, no luck, so we went to the shopping center where Cafer Brazil is.
There were plenty of spaces there (there are 2 other businesses but they were closed at that time) Our plan was to eat at Veracruz and have coffee and dessert at C Brazil. So, we ate at Veracruz and head back to C Brazil,
My husband says let's put the leftover in the trunk first, well our car was gone! We asked inside and they told us they are very aggresive about towing and to call the # on the wall outside.
When our friend came to take us to the tow place we exited on the other side of the shopping center and it had a big sign about not parking there. There was no sign like that from the side that we entered. We had to pay $164 to get our car back. Obviously, we didn't have dessert and it ruined the evening.
We've been coming to Bishop arts for years but We're NEVER going back to Bishop Arts unless they build parking lots or fix the parking problem.

“A former favorite has fallen off the cliff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

When this place was small we loved it. Then it expanded and became like every other big bad TexMex place. From the loud and drunk patrons to being seated next to the kitchen (despite our being a party of eight that made reservations 3 weeks in advance) to dishes served to the wrong people to weak drinks, this was meal run amok.

They need to close and start over but too many people from small towns with no standards for great dining enjoy the place. We don't anymore.
