I apologize! I should have reviewed this place years ago, but never did. The quirky drawback is that if you get a reservation they wont seat you until your entire party arrives. I sat in the bar a couple of times waiting and ended up...More

Love the food here, which can be best described as Modern Mexican. Everything, from the tapas-style starters to the hearty mains, were delicious. We loved the guacamole and cerviche. The drinks, especially the margaritas, are stand-out as well. Reservations are not accepted and you're only...More

Popular, crowded, fun, different and exceptional Mexican food. In spite of the crowd, service was prompt and helpful for ordering and understanding how the dishes were to be shared (Tapas style). Great Margaritas but somewhat high priced. Definitely should be 5 stars if there was...More

You get the same menu (same service, and same quality) as at Bien Trucha, but with a few daily specials added to the mix. Plus, they actually take reservations!

Very, very interesting foods. Not the typical tacos & burritos. Everything very good, very flavorful. Most of the items on the menu I personally have never seen before, but delicious. Be sure to order one of the cocktails - they sound really strange when reading...More
