La Jaquita Baya is a very special place for me. Is not just because the food is always excellent, but also because I know the Chef all my life. Always dedicated, talented, charismatic, and excellent Chef. There is no single choice in their menu, which...More

Perhaps another restaurant is better suited for a group that big. It's is very close from your location, but I dont know if its the right choice. Is it a business meeting? friends and family?
So sorry to hear of your awful experience... that's no way to treat a customer, whether they are satisfied or not. I will definitely steer clear of this place -- and recommend others to find alternative options as well. Thank you for sharing this info.
