I wish I remembered the name of our server! She was an absolute delight! Out of all the places that checked for our ID she was the only one that noticed it was my sisters 21sr birthday and helped make our dinner so much more memorable. She was attentive, had great recommendations for food and drinks, and made us feel very welcome!

We went last night for Restaurant week. The food is amazing and Iryna, our server, was friendly and make our experience really enjoyable. Much better than you would find on the Strip and at half the price. Let's support our local businesses! They also have a super happy hour from 4-6 and then from 10-midnight!

Went for Restaurant Week and it also happened to be Ladies Night. Enjoyed the pre-fixe menu with a reasonable price - included a drink and a dessert! Also received a free drink ticket for Ladies Night. Great energetic atmosphere! I enjoyed the instagrammable and feminine floral/butterfly decor and the music they played. Great/friendly service.

It was our first time here at the restaurant and I loved the look inside and drinks were amazing but the food just tasted like it was either canned food or just not fresh what soever. Definitely was hoping it would taste better.

Restaurant was very nice inside. Loved the picture wall. Drinks were good. The food however left a bit to be desired. The chicken in the chicken nachos was dry, the shredded melted cheese was odd for nachos. The seasoning for the shrimp fajitas reminded me of a store bought fajita seasoning and that’s a shame.

Food was outstanding. Thinking they haven’t figured out whether they want to be a nightclub (DJ played loud Spanish music during our dining experience) or a restaurant. Also, I was there for GF trip so be advised getting an Uber might take two hours. Ugh

Surprisingly great hidden gem of a restaurant. It's located well off the beaten path, but the Mexican food is stylish and interesting (especially the salsa), and the drinks are excellent.

Great Food. Great Service. Great for younger set who like to hear Bruno Mars "Uptown Funk" beating away to their burrito eating - Great; for us older folks - not so much. This was on a Friday at 6pm and the DJ was just warming up, so later in the evening - who knows. Also, every other song was a Zumba rotation so the Zumba crowd should love it.

It was Cinco de Mayo and they were very busy, so it was understandable at the beginning. However, we did have a reservation at 6:45 pm and we weren’t seated until about 7:15. The two hostesses took our name and then seemed to have forgotten about us and when we went back up to the counter, they acted liked it was our first time walking in. We were eventually seated at the first booth when you walk in, and we were not greeted by anyone, brought waters, etc. We sat there until what felt like 8 pm and we’ve tried to grab the attention of waiters all over and no one acknowledged us. We were finally able to the attention of what seemed like a manager and told him that we understood that they were busy but we weren’t greeted at all. We saw tables who sat after us get drinks, put in their orders, and get their food before we were even seen by a waiter. When we finally got one, we knew she was serving a different area further than us and we were very grateful for her. The booth behind us was also getting frustrated, because it seemed like anyone in the booth / bar area wasn’t a priority. The food was tasty and the margaritas were great, but the service lacked. Even on a busy night, it should have been anticipated and they should have over staffed rather than over booked.

I absolutely loved this place! The food was delicious and the drinks were even better! A group of friends and I went on Cinco De Mayo, one of the busiest days for the location. However, they sat us quickly and were very patient with our big group. The only issue i'd say is that on that day it took 2 hours for our food to come out. They expressed that they were really backed up and stayed bringing drinks where most of us didn't even notice until our stomachs started growling. Luckily the food was definitely worth the wait. I'll give this place another try outside of the holiday. The atmosphere is energetic and fun, food is delicious, and my mouth waters thinking about the lime coconut margaritas. Can't wait to go back.

The scenery and special entertainment for Cinco de Mayo was amazing; however, the restaurant was not ready for the crowd despite knowing reservations were fully booked. It took almost 1.5 hours to get our food! The food was good, but I like spicy food so it may not be desirable for all. The drinks were good too, and they were flowing pretty consistently. But the delay in food service is unacceptable!

Came here today on Cinco de Mayo. First timers. Was fun, great prices on the margaritas but not a fan of the shrimp cocktail. It was set up as a 4 prawn shrimp plate. Loved the DJ.

The ambiance is fun, cocktails were really good. Service was ok, our waitress wasn’t the best but we were treated to free drinks when a waiter dropped a plate and the food spilled onto the back of my legs (that waiter was fantastic and the spill could have been much worse but he saved a lot of it and was super apologetic. We even joked about it after. The manager quickly came to our table and offered the next round on him). The food was just ok, it was cinco de Mayo so I understand it’s the busiest day for them but my tacos were ice cold. There is a DJ and the music was good but loud.

All but one of us got served our food and the last person got their food after we finished. We kept asking about the last persons food and they’d said it was coming. They ordered a burrito and ended up with a quesadilla and we just didn’t say anything as it wasn’t worth it. When we were ready to leave it took us 3 waitress/bartender to give us our bill that we asked for 3 times. I liked the ambiance of the place and food was good just service was lacking. I would try it again to see if it was just a one off.

To be fair we didn’t know it was only their 2nd day of reopening. Unfortunately, you could tell. They need to work on their cocktails. The Flautas came out cold. The alote was delicious. The scallops were bland. They did comp dessert do you the cold food but they were store bought frozen Churros.. raw in the middle with burnt chocolate sauce.. service was average.. not sure what concept they are trying to achieve

This is a neighborhood gem! We are foodies who frequent top restaurants on the strip and this place is amazing! The food and drink menu are unique and very tasty! The mixologists can craft any other cocktail you may want. Their twist on a sangria was wonderful. Service is top-notch, and the decor is lovely. We are already planning our next visit!
