We are from Upstate New York, and we had never seen a place like this. It was beautiful and elegant. The vibe felt like fine dining, and the food and service was excellent. Loved it!

The service was fine, ambiance nice, but the food was just boring!! From the tasteless guacamole, to the enormous burrito, to gristle loaded Korean tacos, the food just lacked flavor. A disappointing brunch that won't happen again.

While the service is good and the staff friendly. The food was not as good as one would expect with a large hispanic population in California. The portion sizes were adequate and being able to select your tacos to eat ( average price was $3.50)...More
