Wonderful food and fun atmosphere. Lime soup is wonderful and table-side prepared Caesar salad is delicious and fun to watch. Service is efficient, but not pushy or too fast. Fun to sit upstairs and watch the street activities below.

Great food, great drinks, great service! 2 families had the dinner for 2 and it was certainly enough for a husband and wife. Open air tables overlooking 5th avenue. Servers carried our drinks on their heads

Went as a group of 8. Food was ok but husbands cigarettes were stolen off the table by the waiting staff. Service ok. Because of above I would not recommend but hopefully you'll have better luck than us!

An excellent choice if you like authentic Mexican. I recommend the Lobster Tacos California and the chicken enchiladas with verde sauce. Both were excellent. The margaritas are very potent but delicious.
