We went here for a team dinner - about 8 of us. We had been at a happy hour earlier - so we just stuck to dinner - great food. everybody's entrée was awesome. The vegetarian enchiladas and the appetizers. The lobster and lamb chops, tuna tartare, etc. all the sides, rice, beans etc were all so delicately seasoned and amazingly well balanced. After dinner a few of us stayed back for drinks and the Sunburn Margarita was amazing. Even the free chips and salsa was awesome.

Highly recommended - amazing restaurant

Great find for our yearly trips to Newport Beach. My sister had the Taco Salad and really enjoyed it. But the Short Rib Enchiladas were delicious. The seasonings gave it so many flavors. We enjoyed it so much we came back a second time during our stay.

I came here for dinner with a big group for a business mixer last week. Everything that I had was excellent. I loved the ceviche, guacamole, tamales, filet mignon and lobster tail. I had other foods too and they all were great. My drinks were fine too. Loved it and would have no problem returning!

This is a vibrant bar and restaurant. Exciting decor, big on Tequilas and gourmet Mexican cuisine. Always fun, always loud, lots of pretty people. Our server last night was Kari and she was terrific.
