We had lunch and the breakfast buffet here. Good lunch, great buffet. We just had the regular breakfast buffet but they were setting up the Sunday brunch as we finished. If you are really hungry that would be the way to go.

Great for breakfast but just ok for dinner. The outside dining has a beautiful view and inside is romantic but loses its appeal because of the loud bar across the room. The bar can get loud that it can get distracting. Dinner was just ok...More

Authentic southwest food. I had the chicken enchiladas and the sauce was a recipe passed down from generations of Mexican cooks. The nighttime ambience is soft and romantic with live musicians and string lighting. The service is beyond expectations with every need fulfilled before asking....More
