Very pleasant modern restaurant with tasty new dishes. They offer many gluten free dishes, vegetarian options as well as traditional fare. Loved the queso with shrimp and crab. They were open Sunday night though not busy. Good downtown location near the theater.

Went back to Garrido's on Saturday evening. Had a reservation and glad of it as the place was mobbed at 8pm. Got seated quickly so the reservation system worked. The menu has completely changed since I was last here. It morphed from a "small plates"...More
