4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Best thing on the menus here are the tacos, particularly the lobster taco. The cocktail menu is also good. Good selection of margheritas.

“High End Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great high end Mexican food and drinks!

The restaurant is loud and tight seating in the front area. I recommend sitting in the back of the restaurant for a little more peace.

“West Village charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've been here several times and this quaint Mexican eatery never disappoints! Not your traditional Mexican food as they incorporate unique flavors and ingredients. Share with friends so you can try an assortment of tacos and belly up to the bar to dine if you're so inclined (bartenders are friendly!). They have many varieties of salsas but salsa verde is a classic favorite.
