The only reason why I’m given 2 starts is because the place was nice, however the food wasn’t as I expected it. They charge you more than what really tasted and the quantity is very small. DO NOT GET THE EMPANADAS,those empanadas are so disgusting and the ground beef was rough and no flavor! Such a nice place for such a disgusting food…we ordered chicken tostadas-ok, Burria tacos-ok, grilled avocado Don’t order that, the oysters Ok….even the water tasted bad. I rather to pay more to get a better quality food, sorry for the manager!!!

We should have taken this as our first clue to run the other way—a bar full of dirty glasses and dishes, but only half full of guests. Our meat & cheese board came out quickly, as did our other app. But we had to ask for silverware, and water, and for the old glasses to be removed. And every after sitting and dining for an hour or more, I still had to double check to make sure I was picking up the correct glass, as the dirties still remained. Meanwhile, staff made themselves drinks, the manager sat at the bar on the laptop, our bartender/server leaned on the bar, messing with his phone (when he was actually in sight and not gone for lengthy periods). The food was pretty good, but the service needs much improvement before I’d consider coming back, which is a shame, because the menu is great, and the music is bumping. The manager saw me looking around in bewilderment about all the tables with dirty glasses on them, and said, “We were really busy a few minutes ago. And now we’re real...

Much as other posts. Sloooooooow service. My main (The Pig) was ok. Sweet potato was good, the pork belly a little dry. Drinks were good. The most disappointing thing was the meat and cheese plate. $24 and one of our meets was olive loaf! It also had an Asian sweet and sour sauce that just did not fit the dish.

I love the ambience of this place. They have live music, they were playing Latin music, and couches you can chill on. They did take a long time bringing the food out but it was so worth it! For drink I got the pearl drink and I LOVED it

The manager saw me looking around in bewilderment about all the tables with dirty glasses on them, and said, “We were really busy a few minutes ago. And now we’re really slow. It’s crazy.” Being slow did not seem to make an apparent difference, because my date and I talked for a while about how shocking it was that no one was making an effort to bus. Unbelievable. And unacceptable. It’s a wonder they’ve managed to stay in business this long. The two photos taken were on our way out—no effort made by any of the staff to clear them at any point—like a snap-shot from the post-apocalypse."
