The upstairs patio is nice in the Spring and the Fall, but it's hotter than Hadies in the Summer. The bar is small so don't arrive early for a pre dinner drink. It's always busy so make a reservation. Our favorite dish is Duck Relleno (roasted shredded duck stuffed poblano. chipotle tomato salsa, crema, almonds, escabeche onions, white rice), its delicious.

The happy hour is fantastic. The indoor seating area is small but you want to sit on the upstairs patio any way. The house margaritas are perfect and I'm a sucker for their excellent ceviche. We have been multiple times and only once had any issues with service (our waiter was slow to come and inattentive). But I'm always quick to forgive.

Can't tell you about the food, the service was so terrible we didn't get past appetizers. Sooo glad we didn't bring guest like we orginally planned! How embarrassing!!!

If I could give it no stars. I would. Extremely poor service. Our organization (The League of United Latin American Citizens) decided to go to dinner at a good place. It had good ratings, so we got there and they told us we had wait about an hour for service. So we agreed and waited. Then they told us 30 more minutes. We waited. Then 20 more minutes. So one of our members complained and asked for the manager. To which the manager rudely said, "we have a table for you, take it or leave it because we have someone else waiting." Never again. Rude service, disrespectful manager.

The food was good, service was disappointing. Chips were stale. We were told there was a 20 minute wait for lunch and after waiting about 10 minutes another table, with the same number of people got seated before us. I had the chopped salad, nothing disappointing or spectacular to report.

Always a little under-impressed, but I keep trying because a close friend loves it. I do not recall loving anything. The ceviche tasted fishy and should not. Below Average.

Overpriced for small plates. There was not a lot of flavor and they skimped on products like chorizo and avocado.

Very tasty. Great ceviche, good duck taco and pastor. Not excellent but good. Great views of the city. I would go back. Sweet potato fries are great!
