This was a fun place for our adult family dinner. Good wine list and a menu with something for everyone. The beef tenderloin was so flavorful and fork tender. With a delicious sauce. The trout and tilapia entrees were equally good. Three cheers for Rhian...More

After the stellar reviews, I was very disappointed. It was very average. Food is not at all authentic Mexican or Tex-Mex and is very over-priced.More

Hi Barney, I'm sorry we did not live up to your expectations. We do not try to be either Mexican or Tex-Mex. It is actually Southwestern cuisine which is a bit different. With that said, we certainly strive to be more than average and try...More

Great place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Visually special. Super duper custom Bloody Mary bar to build your own to perfection. Mexican menu is extensive and good. I prefer a Reuben or a patty melt with my booze. Fine friendly service.
