We went on a Friday in January about 12:30 for lunch and the restaurant was fairly empty. We were quickly greeted by Michele, our waitress, and seated by the window. She told us the soup du jour and took our drink orders. My husband had...More

We've eaten there a number of times, and usually have enjoyed it very much. The food is very definitely a New Mexico cuisine, and they have some very special red or green rice, which we haven't see elsewhere. Our only problem has been service, which...More

I thought this place was an amazing area to see the sunset and grab some beers. The chips and salsa where ok but the staff and beer were amazing. I would definitely go back especially for the sunset.

Loved the decor and ambiance. Drinks were good. Food was enjoyable, but nothing out of the ordinary. Nice views of the city as the sun was setting and then with the twinkling lights. Would definitely go again for cocktails and sunset view.
