It was pouring so the porch area was covered and the plastic side walls were down, but water poured under the walls and covered the floor. Not awful, but weird. The music was a little loud. I mention all that to say that the brunch...More

We had a great nite at this bar/restaurant. We had a couple of Mexican meals (tacos and burrito) at the bar and a few drinks during and after. The place was busy and loud. Two rounds of tequila shots! Friendly people in the bar and...More

tuna tostada was excellent, if sloppy to eat. fish tacos (fried cod) were excellent--pineapple or mango in the sauce?? only thing that was not great (and it was fine, just not fantastic) was the chips and salsa and guacamole

The menu for this looked great and we looked forward to going here after walking by. I had a carne Asada beef dish which was good but the salad was plain strange with shaved brussel sprouts and dubious taste. My wife had duck empanatas that...More

We ate there on a busy weekend. After a 1.5 hour wait, our party of 4 was led to a table next to a porta potty and with a bright spot light shining on us. From our table, the inside tables did appear to have...More

Bills itself as Mexican fusion. Confusion is more like it. Only the dumb gringos would like this stuff! Some of the worst Mexican I've had, service nothing to write home about . Only in uppity Newport would they charge you for chips and salsa. Tortillas...More

I'm allergic to onions and garlic (And shallots and scallions). Is it possible to find food in your restaurant without these ingredients?
