Our group of eight had dinner here in late March and we all had a good experience. The food was of high quality and tasty, and the service was excellent. The desserts and cocktails were especially good. I would definitely rank it as one of the better restaurants on 5th with something for everyone. Reasonably priced as well.

This place had it all. They even showed the NCAA Tourney in the back for us by request. Dinner for 6 was only like $175 and we... More

Well back to Madre Tierra for another great dinner. My wife and I enjoyed the Sirloin and Lobster. Both items would melt in you mouth. Daughter and Lobster Linquini.

First of all the restaurant is very nice, on the second floor, no waiting time, amazing service, knowledgeable staff, food to die for. We started with the tuna tartar which was good but the octopus chamuscado is just out of this world. Do get the Caesar salad done in front of you, just a treat. Raymundo very knowledgeable he would... More
