I called in to this restaurant to kill some time after my meetings in KC today. Situated in the Plaza area, brightly lit for the Christmas season, I could not have stumbled on a nicer gem. Happy hour meant food and drink was discounted, and from the prices I paid I am not sure how they make money. Notwithstanding, the... More

This was a great stop for us. We came in on a Sunday brunch and had some great food. The club was put together freshly with all ingredients cut from the original plant. The chicken was grilled to perfection. The price was cheap and it was a really great lunch. Really enjoyed it and will be coming back for mamosas

The food was good and the salsa delicious. The margaritas were very good. I was a bit disappointed that I was at a mexican restaurant and had to pay for chips and salsa but it was worth the $5.00

It really doesn't hurt when you sit outside on a 70 degree day. The fire pit on the back porch is festive. The food could make the angels weep. Our appetizer was beautifully presented and fantastic! I had the empanades were the right mix of heat and they were stuffed. But, the crowning glory was the mac and cheese. Crazy... More

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel. A lovely walk and an even lovelier experience to sit down in an outdoor area and enjoy a view of the street combined with the excellent atmosphere of the restaurant. The fish tacos were delicious the food and service was outstanding in every way. Even the finale with a delicious sorbet.... More

We ordered guacamole and were pleased to find it fresh and delicious. The beer list is limited but the traditional favorites are there as well as an extensive tequila offerings. My wife enjoyed the Diver's... More

It's a bit pricey, but the food is worth it. I had tacos on a soft shell that were very good. Portion size was okay, though not as generous as other places. The service we received was very poor. I treated my adult daughter and her boyfriend to dinner. The boyfriend works as a server at a nearby restaurant of... More
