Consistently great food along with an elaborate margarita menu. Get the Cactus Rose Margarita along with their Spicy Guacamole if you like it hot. All the food is very fresh and you always get great service as well.

First time to this restaurant. We all had wonderful dinners, appetizers and drinks. Great service, and pleasant patio dining. Recommend the lobster mac and cheese, mushroom risotto and tuna tartare. Will return!

There were staff missing from the kitchen the night we were there so hopefully that was the reason for the disappointing food and slow service. Would not recommend this restaurant and won't be back, however.

This place was welcoming from the get go. This stylish Wilton restaurant has good food and drink. It's pretty multicultural , something one does not expect in this town.

We were three for lunch today. The chips, salsa and guacamole were delicious as were our drinks. The service is excellent. The Quesadilla with chicken and fresh spinach is VERY good and the portions very generous. Their crispy shell beef tacos were a perfect starter.
