Voted Best New Restaurant by St. Louis Magazine and Feast Magazine. St. Louis Magazine A-List Restaurant. Our Queso Flameado, is described as St. Louis' Best Queso by food editor, Ian Froeb of The St. Louis Post Dispatch.

We are an elevated Mexican restaurant with a beautiful, yet casual atmosphere. Located in a quaint residential area in University City, just steps from Clayton, our tropical oasis awaits you. Our menu is comprised of mostly small plates so you can experience multiple items to satisfy your palate. You can't go wrong with our costra (grilled cheese) tacos, sheetpan nachos, enchiladas or barramundi tacos. Our margaritas and cocktails are made with fresh juice, squeezed in house and only the best ingredients. Relax on our patio, open air or garden dining rooms. We have early and late weekday happy hour.

We will definitely visit again.

Food seemed fresh but pretty bland. I got some flavor out of the radishes and pickled onions in the two items I tried but overall was just looking for something more flavorful.

This place is no exception. First, let me say that this is a nice-looking place. Seating was prompt and the waiter was friendly. In fact, the waiter had a great personality, but was frazzled. We ordered a margarita and a beer, but got two margaritas and a beer. No big deal. I didn't get the beer the way I requested, though, and was never asked if I wanted a second. In more than an hour, with an obviously empty beer in front of me, I could never get a second and wasn't asked. After waiting maybe 15-20 minutes for food, my girlfriend received a different meal than what she ordered, so we had to wait another 10-15 minutes. Second attempt had the presentation correct but not the contents. She ordered one type of meat, got a different one. In the end, we were not charged for some of the meal, and the waiter was super apologetic. The food, though not what was ordered, was very good, so it wasn't all bad. We will probably try it again someday, just disappointed to try a new place and it was one error after another.

We certainly never want to provide service as shotty as you received and we apologize for the troubles that you had. We hope you come back again and hopefully we can gain a 5 star review from you as what you experienced is not our norm. Have a great week and happy spring!

We are almost 100% scratch, we use only olive oil and organic rice bran oil, we juice our citrus in house for all drinks, our tacos are 6" (with a 1/4lb serving of meat in them), our drinks have a 2oz pour & much more. These things, in addition to paying a living wage makes our prices higher. Luckily, we're in a city that has many types of restaurants with different price points to satisfy all. We hope you have a wonderful spring & summer!

Our server was attentive despite being busy and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious, yet smaller portions than I would have imagined for the price. The jalapeño pineapple margarita was a striking $11. The decor and ambiance is lively and fun. In my opinion this is not a place for everyday dining but was wonderful for our special occasion.

The jalapeño-margarita is one of our most popular. It's made with 2oz of Patron silver and fresh squeezed lime - nothing from concentrate! We hope you visit us again for another celebration in the near future!

The food was absolutely delicious and as a vegan I am always thrilled to find real vegan options, not just modifications to the main/omni menu. Love that the drinks are naturally “skinny” and it was the best skinny spicy margarita I’ve had in St. Louis. We will definitely be back!

We tried chicken fish and shrimp and none of them had much flavor. The salsa is also very bland. My margarita was way to sweet and had too much lime juice. We will likely not return.

The music can be a little quieter in certain areas of the building and definitely outside. Maybe a patio visit on a nice warm day might be better. Have a great week and stay warm while we go through this little cold snap; brrrrrrr.

Our waiter, Michael, was perfectly attentive. I love the touch of roses given at the table to the ladies. The food was great too. Everything was done to perfection!
