My family and I have been going there for years. We usually go for breakfast or brunch. Be prepared for a wait if you go at around noon on a weekend, which is usually very busy. I highly recommend the green sauce chilaquiles, enfrijoladas, and any of the moles. The aguas frescas are delicious and the cafe de holla is... More

A big variety of mole's but unfortunately the service wasn't all that great. Also, I've had much better mole at other places in the area. The attraction to this place is the variety they have but some are not so special.

We have eaten here several times. It is not a cheap place, but the moles are unusual and flavorful and the portions are huge. This time I had the chicken poblano mole - 2 huge lean pieces of chicken with a generous amount of rich, chocolaty sauce and rice. Hubby had their scallops in a white mole - spicy and... More

From the creamy salsa with a bite to the corn soup /not chowder, we were pleasantly surprised. My wife had chocolate mole & chicken, I had hot, cinnamon mole over pork. Tortillas were homemade. Interesting Fruit drinks. Not a cheap meal but, worth it. Service was good, it was a Sunday early afternoon, so I haven't had a wait problem,... More

I've seen some recent negative reviews, but my experience (at least) was very positive. We arrived (party of 6) and were promptly served. Staff was very friendly. I ordered the Tricolor Enmoladas (basically delish corn tortillas fully stuffed with chicken) and my choice of moles for each. I had a mole poblano (the traditional), a Oaxacan mole (darker/spicier than poblano)... More

Me and my family decided to go there because we wanted some good food. We were starving. We go in and they make us wait 5-8 min for them to sit us. It wasn't even full with people they just kept walking by us ( they didn't even tell us nothing about waiting) anyways we finally get a table. I... More

I will preface this with the fact that I am a food snob. I enjoy good food and seek it out in all corners of the country. I went there with my Wife . We were very excited to try this new place we have never eaten at before. I always go with an open mind and clear pallet .... More

The service was excellent, probably due to the fact that me and my husband were the only ones there. We had a Groupon for this spot and decided to head over on Dia de Los Muertos, before attending any festivities. If it wasn't for the group on, I would have walked out after seeing the prices!! Everything was over 12... More

If you like Mexican food, don't miss this place. You don't have to go to Mexico to enjoy lovely platters in an informal setting. Cute, but not intimidating. Thoughtful, carefully prepared dishes-lovely platters. A real gem in Southern California! Never had a bad thing there!

I am not usually a fan of molé but this restaurant has changed my view. They provide a selection that can satisfy this skeptic.
