The menu is somewhat middle eastern, somewhat Spanish/Latin and whatever else they think is good. And, for the most part, the food is good. My wife ordered a warm seafood salad and I had tacos a la planch. We shared a bit of each other's plates and I wasn't as impressed with the seafood salad as my wife was. This... More

An unpretentious small restaurant with a varied menu from the Mediterranean and South America. The staff is pleasant, and the food is fresh and tasty.

Stopped by here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. I had the chicken and vegetable curry wrap which was very flavorful and fresh. Excellent service and nice little patio out back too.

We live down the street from Chez Shea and I always look forward to eating here. Last time I was in, I had the Salmon with Cinnamon, Turmeric and Citrus. One of the best things I've eaten in quite a while, and I've never had salmon cooked that way ever, anywhere. You MUST start with the Mezza Platter, which is... More

Would have been a 5 star if they had cleaned it up a bit and I not have waitresses coughing into their hands i'm not washing after. Great beet salad. Would not dine here again

A pleasant surprise. Very unassuming but so delicious!!! Everything from pumpkin soup, to pipian con carne de puerco, warm seafood salad, child rellano, creme brûlée, fried calamari! I didn't want to stop eating. Food was so fresh, not over seasoned, just perfect. I want to go back again tomorrow!

This is a small family operated restaurant that favors Mexican style cuisine. Every bit of it ....all the choices are excellent. They really know how to prepare excellent meals with poblano peppers, their beans and rice are just superb. It's home cooking Mexicano style. No disappointments here.

I had late lunch here with my Mom and her cousin. You order at the counter and then your order is delivered to your table. My mom loved her taco salad and even ate the shell (which she never does) because it was so light and crispy. Her cousin had the turkey/havarti melt and pronounced it yummy. I had a... More
