Nice dropping in after touring the Art Festival. Great cocktails and the beignets for desert were perfect- nice touch with the food runner shaking the bag. The server could have been a bit more attentive - but she was friendly enough. A very good time was had - thanks!!

Great drinks and bar service. Jeff was outstanding, he and his staff can make any drink imaginable. I did not try the food but from what I was seeing around me, a lot of people go there for the cuisine.

First time visit last night with friends. Great place with nice décor and very friendly and helpful serving staff. The cocktails are great and to a certain extend novel. We had the crab meat starter, the bread starter, the cold plate, the wild boar ossumbuco, and the steak. The starters were excellent and all of us enjoyed them very much. The wild boar ossumbucco is simply divine and I would highly recommend it to anybody. Unfortunately, they were out of my first choice dish the buffalo Mac'n'Cheese. It looked like a nice dish. The steak was well a bit of a disappointment. It was slightly over cooked and quite frankly I have cooked many a steak that was more tender and tastier. At $38 this dish has to undergo some improvements. Were it not for the steak this would have been a 5* place.

Had lunch here with friends. One of my companions had the corned beef sandwich and said it was the best he had ever had. The steak and cheese sandwich is prepared on an excellent roll, very tender and tasty meat and a great sauce on the side. The fries are fantastic as is the homemade ketchup. The waitstaff is knowledgeable about drinks and made fitting recommendations. We will be back!

Back in the day, when La Paz used to be over by the parking garage, enjoyed their food, very authentic back then, not so now. Mediocre dinner there the last time we visited.
