A large group of us spent a Friday night at Ama Cocina for nouveau Mexican cuisine and were accommodated in the upstairs seating area. We had made reservations such that we wouldn't "surprise" the waitstaff and kitchen upon our arrival. Yet, they seemed surprised. Our...More

Horrendous attempt at “Mexican” street food. The guacamole was watery and had an external layer of grey as if it had been sitting too long in the refrigerator. The trio of dips was dreadful: refried beans overwhelmed by smoke flavor; corn dip tasteless gloop; salsa...More

I'm not entirely sure why the concierge recommended this restaurant. The enchiladas I ordered were extremely bland and some of the rice wasn't fully cooked. I'm guessing his taste buds were shot! I would not recommend.

Interesting place. Not impressed with the menu. Especially the Chili Releno. I was served two chili’s stuffed with grits and chicken then battered and deep fried. Not at all what I would have expected.

Stopped in yesterday for a late lunch/early dinner. We all started with a drink — the margaritas were good, the red sangria was not so good. My kids order the taco platters and the street corn and they enjoyed. I ordered the enchiladas—one chicken and...More
