The venue is small. But they have outdoor seating. It was perfect for the weather. The food was extremely good. I had shrimp fajitas. Husband had Alambres Monterrey. It was very flavorful. Hostess was nice. Definitely recommend this place.

BUT it's a decent stop for a quick bite and a couple of drinks. The other reviews I read put such a negative connotation on it. Seriously, what else would you expect from an establishment that's surrounded by shops like Guess, Tommy Hilfiger, the Sunglass...More
