We go here often, The ambiance is lovely, the food is always delicious, the service is always fabulous! Shrimp Tacos are a favorite. Tableside guacamole is unreal! Nice options for kids meals as well.

Once again, this restaurant does not disappoint. Wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable of menu. Wife not happy with a part of her entree, and no questions asked. Replaced with another item. We are very happy with this restaurant.

GREAT atmosphere, good drinks, delicious apitizers. We've been several times and each time we go we leave feeling that the apitizers were better than the entree. Next time we'll just get lots of apitizers and no entree :)

Thank you for a lovely birthday celebration! As always, the handmade guacamole was an extraordinary way to start, the tamales with mole never better, and I finally tried the short ribs (and find myself still thinking about how rich and tasty they were). Thank you,...More

Reservations recommended but they always seem to find a table with a short wait. Freshly made guacamole at the table is highly recommended. Camarones Tropical is a must try. Slight kick in taste but not spicy at all. The hibiscuses margarita is delicious! Atmosphere is...More

I have been coming here for a number of years. Tuesday's visit was a disappointment. It seems all the servers are new and not very experienced. With a recent menu change (higher prices) this place has gotten expensive for Mexican. I remember those olden days...More

Not sure what you mean ... they have a bar and usually busy - mid week is probably quiet ... to me it's more of a restaurant with bar to have apps and a few drinks - not so much to hang out !!
