Food was excellent, when it finally arrived. We were seated immediately. There was one other table with customers. Our food was placed in front of us 1 hour and 10 minutes later. We had to ask to be served two times. For the price of...More

By far one of the nicest restaurants in El Paso. Wide variety of land and seafood. Nice presentation. The Green Chile Soup is outstanding. Only a handful of restaurants in this class in El Paso.

Food is usually good and you never feel rushed by the wait staff. Relaxing atmosphere. Clean. All time favorite waiter there was Charles. Outdoor seating if you are so inclined. Convenient to the Plaza Theater and parking is convenient as well....

The food is good but expensive. The service is good but slow. The location in a downtown area offers problems with parking and vagrants.

I had heard that this restaurant was pricey but that the marvelous food, service and the atmosphere made the price worth it. Yes, the restaurant is pretty and it's right downtown and as short walk from the museums, but I wouldn't ever eat there again....More
