Mexican fare gets a contemporary spin at this colorful cantina with a festive courtyard patio.- Google

Honestly some of the best brunch available in the area. Outdoor seating when it's nice, a wide variety of interesting dishes that sit happily between modern Mexican cuisine and brunch classics. All the dishes are a perfect single serving - you don't leave overly full or feel like you have to figure out how to reheat eggs. Note: You can add meat to many of the dishes. As someone who likes protein in his breakfast, adding the carnitas to the chiliquiles is amazing.

Maybe a bad day/too busy Friday evening, but had higher expectations than what was delivered. Ceviche was so and so and served with warm plates (straight out of the dishwasher?). Wanted at least some spiciness to the chille relleno. Great margarita. Servers were friendly.

My favorites: carnitas, ceviche, and refried beans. I wish they'd bring back the refried navy bean dish they used to do with pork lard. Great drinks too.

The food is so fresh here. We've never had a bad meal. One of my favorite things here is Budin corn and zucchini pudding.

I want to like this place more: the patio, the bars and the cocktails are great! But the food just isn't flavorful enough to match the prices in my opinion. Still, will keep going again and again for their happy hour

Great cocktails, Nice atmosphere. Very popular so it gets noisy. If that's a problem sit out in the patio, which is very nice. This is upscale Mexican so you won't find burritos on the menu. The food is interesting.

A mexican place trying to be gourmet. They just don't quite make it good or unique enough to justify their pricing. More like eating average mexican food from fancy plates with mid-high end service. Don't see the return on the investment after a few visits.

Great margaritas, great chips & salsa. Everything was fab including the Oakland Hipster scene in full effect. Servers had great knowledge about allergy info as well (including Gluten-free).
