The staff was very nice and attentive. The beer was warm, the guacamole was warm. The vendors we're non stop disrupting our lunch endlessly. Save your money for another spot.

This is a high end restaurant. We arrived early (dinner starts at 530) and had drinks in the lounge. I don't believe they have earlybird specials, but i suspect the lunch menu is less pricey.
