"The menu had a lot of interesting and tempting choices. Our selection (lobster enchilada and steak in chile morita). The menu was good value The drinks were nice. The service was friendly. Our table was not ready when we arrived but that was fine as we sat at the bar. We visited on a weeknight and the place was very busy so reservations are a must."

"We have eaten here quite a few times and keep going back. The food is much more sophisticated, fresh and flavorful than standard Tex-Mex. The Queso Fundido al Chipotle and Ceviche de Camaron Sinaloa was delightful, The Filet was fantastic, perfectly cooked to our liking and so tender my wife cut hers with a fork. Go there and expand your pallet beyond the chimichanga."

"Went for a New Years Eve dining option with the family. Food was between good to great depending on which family member you asked. I would suggest the restaurant should look into having a simplistic kids menu."
"We were about to order appertisers but a basket of homemade nachos and salsa was delivered to our table so we quickly changed our minds. They were really fresh and tasty. We then had the enchiladas, both plates were full and we couldn't eat it all , it was just as well that we hadn't ordered those appetisers! The food was delicious but we could have done with a little more spice."
