“Good food, poor service”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We eat here a few times a year. We had dinner recently. Margaritas are great, guacamole at the table is excellent. Our entrees were good. But service was lousy. Our order was taken quickly, but our entrees took at least a half hour to arrive. Unacceptable. We were told there were "issues" in the back. Not sure what they were, but this will impact whether we go back or not.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

My wife and I ate here on a Monday night. This is a slow night in downtown Kalamazoo. Margaritas are half price all night long. We had the guacamole prepared at your table, which is excellent. We also had the casa enchiladas and taquilla chicken quesadillas. Both dishes were excellent and just the right amount of food. Service was excellent. We have eaten here 3 or 4 times and would definitely eat hear again.

“Pleasant”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Was there for lunch and it was a quiet atmosphere at that time and therefore easy for conversation. The food was okay, though I didn't find it exceptional.

“Yummy”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Went with a coupon; would not have known about it otherwise. The tapas were very good. We shared 3 for the 2 of us. Margaritas were the special of the day at $4. The wine list was short but good. Bacon and duck Rangoon, crab cakes, Cobb salad were served one at a time. Skip the crab cakes as they tasted fishy. The other 2 more than made up for it. Service was very good; the atmosphere vibrant withtout being noisy. Not bad for a Monday night.

“Great Food and Service by Jason”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Was in town for Kalamazoo's Island Festival and decided to stop here for dinner. We had the Crab Cakes and Mushroom Enchiladas which were amazing. Jason was so friendly but didn't interrupt us too much. Also did the Tequila Tasting which was really good but glad that we decided to share it because it would've been too much for me to drink.
