Food was delicious and unique! We split a few small plates so we could sample some different items. Loved the street corn “ribs”, mussels, Peruvian wings and crispy fish tacos.

Everyone in our party was happy with the food. However, our server, who was very, very nice, was clearly new(ish). She wasn't able to describe a beer when I asked about it, other than to say, "lots of people order it." She didn't know how to stack dishes when removing them from the table. At one point, an employee sprayed ant killer while everyone on the patio was eating their dinner. As I said, the food was good. But at these prices I expect top tier service, and no insect poison to be sprayed during the meal.

Food was even better than I remember pre pandemic. Our server was awesome. Muggy inside and outside though. Left sticky and damp.

Cant recommend this place enough. Great outdoor and indoor seating options with a friendly and laid back staff. Birria Tacos are a must. Just a bit on the pricey side but it’s worth it because of the ice they serve with drinks. Will be coming back!

Took the kids. Every time we’ve been there the servers have been so accommodating and so nice. My daughter wanted to take home the chips we didn’t eat and they brought us extra chips to go. A great spot where you can take the kids and still have a really good meal!

Everything was fantastic and our waitress went above and beyond to check on things for my husbands cilantro allergy. Food was great, drinks were great and service was fantastic. (Also really nice to all be fully vaccinated and get to eat inside a restaurant again!!)

I love this place….ate outside under an umbrella. Lots of other diners happy to be able to join friends for a meal at last. Their cocktail, WASP was delicious, and I loved my two ‘small plates’ of Octopus and Brazilian shrimp.
Service was excellent, everyone in my party’s food arrived on time.
Would highly recommend this nice restaurant.

Delicious food! Loved the options, atmosphere, music. Next time I would ask for salad instead of fries with my tacos, which they should probably offer. All in all, fun.

A quick couple drinks and a nice early dinner on a Sunday before it got too busy here. There was a break in the weather so we popped in and had dinner at the bar. Figured everyone would be scrambling for a patio seat. The food abs cocktails did not disappoint. Look forward to coming back again and scrambling for one of those lovely patio tables.

Thought it was too noisy. Not the music volume, but the sound of dishes and silverware etc clanging around. The playlist was good music.
Would have preferred to be outside, but storms were threatening.
Food was good and fresh.

Went for lunch, they seemed short staffed. The wait even though we had a reservation was long for a place that was physically empty. The wait to be served was also lengthy. But the food was good and so were the drinks.

Although our service was a little slow the outstanding food made up for it. I was disappointed the the Baltimore club taco wasn’t on the menu. It has always been my favorite!

The food is always exceptional, the wait staff is less than stellar. The hosts look like shabby hobos which is uninviting. It's bizarre that they never bring plates when they bring the appetizer. They waste their money and time on serving a bowl of lemons with the salsa.

You can substitute mushrooms for salmon in the lite fare and have a healthy, outstanding vegan meal and pay less also.

Birria tacos are one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. The spicy pineapple marg, the Pancho and the Leche Tigre were also 10/10!
Yucca frites are the ONLY way I ever want to eat Yucca again.
Only drawback was actually the guacamole! So boring. Plain. Give it some umph or options!

First time back post-pandemic. The menu seemed overly “takeout oriented.” Whereas the food had been interesting, it now seemed to consist of burgers, fries and very family/takeout friendly food. 🤷🏻‍♂️
