“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

The food is great, as was the live entertainment! We went with our children ages 9 and 6, and both loved watching Armi, the owner of Encore, sing! Great family place

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you and your children loved Encore. Its so nice that your children loved the music. Godo music is always appreciated by many and we have to say your children are off to a good start. We welcome everyone at Encore especially families as Bucerias, is a nice little beach town where families love to vacation. See you again.

“Johnny Breakfast”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Johnny Breakfast is your traditional bacon and eggs. But at 50 pesos, in a beautiful setting with good waiters it makes a great start to the day. Coffee is exra

“Oh well...,”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Last year it was better, by far. This year the food is mediocre and, frankly, the singer/owner's piercing voice should rest more often in course of the evening. Appetizers were forgettable, steaks fatty and really not to be mentioned. The seafood platter was bland and without imagination, only the espresso merrits mark of apprecoation. The place is more expensive than its quality merits even though the limited wine list is at least realistically priced.
Keep going, better places ahead...

Thank you for your review. We apologized if the food did not meet your expecatations which is contrary to the majority of the reviews. For the information of the reading public, we have a group of about 30 customers from Quebec who come to Encoreregularly just to have a feast of our famous 12 oz Ribeye Steak. I can't dispute your review, but at the same time, I can't ignore the good comments from our other customers. As for the singer, Armi Grano, the public should be able to judge her performance via the other rave reviews.

“Nice location, good music, food a touch weak”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Enjoyed our meal there, though no music that day. Food isn't bad, perfectly acceptable, but by SF Bay Area standards merely average.

Thank you for your review. We are constantly tweaking and improving all areas of Encore and we appreciate your comments. Be assured that one day, Encore will be at par or better than San Francisco Bay area restaurants! We hope to see you again.
