We sat at a high top in the bar. Coolest dinner we've had in years. Shashito peppers and amazing margaritas. Shrimp in salsa verde sauce, outstanding! Cuitlacoche tacos delicious. Ask for Ivan. Super waiter.

Beautiful restaurant, very nicely decorated. Wait staff is very professional, meal is leisurely, and the food is very good. The moles are really tasty. The green chicken enchilada, a personal favorite, is only served at lunch. Wish they would put it on the dinner menu.

Beautiful restaurant. Lovely atmosphere. Took a very long time for dinner. And the waiter didn’t really help explain the menu even though we were asking him lots of questions. Very spicy if you like that. Not too much that isn’t. If at all.
