Reservation are a must. Pretty and uppy atmosphere. Good salsa. Beef fajitas were delicious and tender. Not fatty but full of flavor. Sadly tortillas are NOT homemade. The cheesecake was topped with carmel and is fabulous and yummy.

This was the absolute best Mexican food I have ever had! The squash enchiladas were so good! Save room for dessert too and you won't be disappointed! The bread pudding topped with rich ice cream melted in my mouth! The service was impeccable!

Pleasant restaurant with decent service. Noise level is bearable. Most of the food is highly spiced including the salad I had. Regular place. Not bad, not good.More

Yes, we do, we just don't post it because it is always evolving and changing with vintages and wineries. I would be happy to email it to you if you would like.

Hi Barbara, I am sorry - we don't have a Happy Hour. We did attempt it at one point but the guests' reception of it wasn't as enthusiastic as we had hoped. Now, we just keep our prices reasonable throughout the day.
