Was just walking passed this place when a giggling staff person proceeded to kick something onto the street and into my shoe. It turns out it was a mouse. The poor creature was gasping for life. While we know most restaurants have mice, there are many humane ways to deal with it. Laughing at some creature's suffering is not one... More

My friends and I have eaten at this restaurant several times. We have had brunch there and all enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the service. A recent change in menus lately has changed all that. We went on 10/12/13 for an early brunch. The new menu was quite limited (more so than previously). I ordered a stuffed shrimp entree.... More

Two times going here and both times it was so very good. Such a pleasant wait staff, the margaritas were absolutely addictive, and the quality of the food will not confuse you with a run of the mill Mexican restaurant. If you only get one desert, make it the Tres Leches. Even thouch we stayed on the upper west side,... More

We're crazy about Mexican food and for my hubby's 50th, that's what he wanted. Since the only reservation they take is for the chef's table (which I did not want to get) I was apprehensive about showing up without a reservation knowing that they are always packed but we decided to chance it and made the odds better by showing...

Great bartenders. Great staff. Loved the desserts! Order two of them and you'll melt. We ate from 6:45 to 8:00 and loved the environment. The crowd ramps up pretty quick. The dining room creates the sensation of eating at one table, family style, because of the way people are ordering such fun, unique dishes. Your senses are overwhelmed and the... More

New Location in Downtown Manhattan. After walking like crazy around the city we went to this Mexican place (found it on the web). The food was great, the service couldn't be better and we even made room for dessert. We had a platter of meat for two, one pozole to share and pastel imposible which is flan on a piece... More

Decent food, but overpriced and REALLY small portions. I prefer to order in - the live music is loud and distracting for dinner.
