Very expensive this place, it has a nice interior design but uncomfortable, its a good experience but Oaxaca has more options than just a Cheff name, the bar is very limited, food is good and location is far from downtown

As noted in many of the other reviews, this restaurant has a lot of strengths: a beautiful ambiance, attentive service, and creative, local food with a modern interpretation. Why a restaurant like this would allow smoking is beyond me! The group of people next to...More
