This meal was delicious and is our new favourite. Service was attentive and friendly in a fun, ambient atmosphere. But the food... especially the sauces, were above and beyond. Three sauces are put on your table for your meal. The coriander flavoured one is my favourite of all time. I would buy that by the bucket. The chipotle sauce was... More

Friends wanted to try this restaurant and we were disappointed. My steak was over done and tuff. My husband said his shrimp was nothing special. I also thought they served the worst margarita I have ever had! Sorry, for a $100 dollar meal we will never go back.

My favorite dish is the chicken mole. The dish has the same amazing taste and high quality every time. The appetizer of fresh chips and homemade guacamole and hot sauce is the bomb! I've had a couple of their special fish dishes as well, never had a bad meal in this place. It's all prepared fresh and tastes great. To... More

This was a recommendation by a friend. I had always driven by the place. Inside was quite a lovely surprise. The restaurant was quaint and light was ambient inside. The food was fresh and hot. The live acoustic music was nice and not in your face. I will go back for a special occasion as it was a bit pricey... More

Seriously, Alexis really is a great waiter at this excellent very special and different Mexican restaurant unlike others in Phoenix. He is very personable and knows every dish on the menu. The menu choices are excellent; the food quality, preparation and serving showmanship are superb. The prices are reasonable. We had the Borrego (lamb) menu main and the evening special,... More

My husband and I order the sample platter that had shrimp and mole and cochinita pibil. Delicious! Then we each had fillet and sirloin, Mexican style. It was delicious!

We've had lunch and dinner at this fabulous restaurant. Dinner included lamb leg, elk chops (the special), and several types of stew. All were yummy. The margaritas are great. We will be back.

As a native of Mexico City, I was happy to find this restaurant. I ordered the Enmoladas and was not disappointed. The only thing I regretted was that it wasn't served with rice and beans as I expected. My friends ordered the Enchiladas Verdes and Adobada. They both were very good.

The 'torta' was the absolute best!!! I enjoyed the creamy cilantro soup too. It was an affordable place to eat. They were very attentive to our table and provided us with excellent service. I was also pleased with the full bar. The only set back for me were the tortilla chips they use for the guacamole and salsas...

I just had dinner at Asi Es La Vida, which is a relatively small restaurant that's kind of off the beaten track (at least for visitors to Phoenix). The menu is authentic and upscale Mexican. It's not huge, but offers a variety of meat/seafood choices. I had the surf and turf special, which was steak and shrimp. Both were cooked... More
