My husband and I went here for happy hour before a show. We may have had too high of expectations for this restaurant, but generally the service was poor and there were cockroaches in the bathroom. We likely won't return.

Had the opportunity to eat here and try the street tacos, 1 Chicken 2 Carne Asado, which were small but good. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice, but busy. Must make reservations ahead of time.

Had a good dinner here, food was nice although not that spicy. Had to wait about 30mins before table was ready. Friendly staff, but it is really noisy inside!

When a friend recommended we go to MXDC for food I did groan a bit, since I am not a great fan of the cuisine and the upstairs area is noisy. Our server though put us in a booth downstairs where it was much quieter....More
