We returned after our disappointing July visit. Justin accepted our comments - portion size and bringing back the honey for sopaillas. We very much enjoyed dinner. New menus and good value for money. Way to Go!

The food here is good. Their wait staff on the other hand is always a disaster. Never bothers to bring you refills on your drinks... brings you the wrong meal... seats you with no high chair even when you requested one and obviously need one....More

Perfection at every turn. The food is remarkable. Haven't tasted a complexity of flavors like this since visiting Santa Fe. The saffron rice is delectable. Kudos to the landscape & building architect, as well as the interior designer. I wish we didn't live so far...More

This restaurant has been around a long time because of the attention to quality food and service. I had the beef enchilada with green chili sauce. If you like Margherita's this is the place to go. Be careful because they pack a big punch. They...More

The food is fresh. The guacamole is excellent. The salsa has a distinct flavor, possibly cumin. It's a bit pricey. $50 with tip for the two of us, and that's just us drinking tea. It just depends on your taste whether you'll like it, but...More

I'm so glad you enjoyed our guacamole and your meal. Our commitment to using fresh and high-quality ingredients does mean our prices might be a bit more but I hope our flavors made up for it. Thanks, Justin A., Owner

Service was a little slow but they were just gearing up for supper so to be expected. The Happy Hour Margarita's made it worth the wait. Loved the Fish Tacos and hubby enjoyed his Spinach Mushrom Enchilada. This used to be the Mission Bell Inn...More

Thirty minute wait on a Thursday night is always a good sign! So we ate at the bar and were not disappointed. The chips and salsa were excellent as was the freshly made guacamole. We had the cheese enchiladas with two sauces--green chile & tomatillo...More
