Deicious brunch! The bottomless drinks for $20 is also a serious selling point. The staff are great and the food is always good quality.

High end mexican at it's finest! Nothing to complain about other than perhaps the snooty server who seemed to have a smirk for some reason. Not sure why - we ordered drinks and appetizers; had to get her attention to order more drinks - we ordered entrees and dessert, but that didn't stop us from having an enjoyable evening here. The meat, fish and chicken choices are plentiful here. If you are strict vegetarian, your choices are rather limited, which I was somewhat surprised at - but there are still several choices available on the menu. The place is upbeat, beautiful and a little noisy, but fun. There are some high end wines offered by the glass, which is a plus if you aren't interested in buying a whole bottle.

The décor is still very nice, but the food this last time was not as good as in the past.
We had the House Margarita, which was terrible, especially at $10 a glass.

The menu didn't have as much of a choice as in the past. We had Butternut Squash soup was good. I liked it, but my wife thought it was too sweet.

The carnitas we had were OK, but they didn't serve anything with it. It was just meat with corn tortillas. For the price, it was disappointing.

This restaurant offers a great menu for happy hour. The staff is friendly and I loved their chips and salsa. The appetizers are small so order a few to get a good bite. Loved the decor, definitely coming back!
