    Food was ok. The service was lacking. Took to long to get our order in. They bring out the spiciest sauce and no water. We sat for quite a bit with no water. Just lacking. However, I believe in second chances, I may try them out again but haven’t made up my mind yet.

    The food is fantastic - delicious ceviches!! Only downside is there is a slight sewer smell throughout the restaurant that really effects the ambiance. I’d still go back though.

    This used to be our favorite restaurant for a theatre evening - not any longer! The noise level was so loud (mostly from the music they had piped in) that we could hardly hear ourselves think, much less carry on a conversation. The pompano, which I always thought was the best fish dish in Houston was much greasier than it used to be. And it took 20 minutes and several complaints to get the dessert we had ordered - and we had to get it to go in order to make it to the theatre on time. I’ll give it one more chance, in hopes this was just an off night, but I think we will be looking for a new regular spot.

    The service was good, and the food, Mexican seafood, was superb. The starter of octopus on potato chips with a guajillo pepper sauce was particularly noteworthy. The only drawback was that the unpadded wooden chairs were uncomfortable after a while. The food was served relatively quickly, which was good as we were headed to the theater.

    Was very disappointed by this restaurant. Price point was out of range for below mediocre food. Service was fair. Had the pulpo (octopus) chips. Nothing special. Seasoned potato chips with octopus recently thawed and still cool in the middle, soggy not crisp. The beer battered fish tacos were also soggy and flavorless.

    Happy, casual ambiance with excellent customer service. The food is simply top notch. My Salmon Glasedo en Chile Ancho came out piping hot, prepared to perfection. Don’t miss the frozen margarita! One is all you need. I would have ordered Carlotta di Limon for dessert, but wasn’t available when I was there mid- afternoon. Sounds lucious. Don’t miss this place while in Houston.

    Excellent service, delicious food, great drinks and a fantastic vibe throughout the restaurant. It’s priced pretty great for what you’re getting and is probably my new favorite seafood place. Noise is probably only on the 2 level bc of a big table in the back, but when I tell you the service was great I’ve never had a server who knew the menu well enough to say that one option was better bc it could overpower the taste of what we ordered. Plan to go back again in the future

    Was really looking forward to eating here because the menu looked great. The food ended up disappointing and one entree was inedible. Started with the lobster bisque and and their version of the Moscow Mule but with tequila. Both were fantastic and we were off to a great start. Then it went downhill. The queso appetizer came out with the soup instead of before it. That’s not a huge deal but trying to eat both at the same time was awkward. Biggest problem is the queso wasn’t melted where you could dip chips into it. It was more like a solid block of mozzarella and we were literally cutting it with a knife and fork to eat bites of cheese. Ended up leaving 3/4 of it uneaten. We are not big complainers and let it slide. I had the pompano fish which was good, but didn’t realize ahead of time it was a whole fried fish. Again not a big deal and it did taste fine but frustrating because I specifically asked how it was cooked. The major problem was the fried lobster. $50 down the drain because it was inedible. The lobster had cooked up to what could be called lobster jerky. I estimate all total we got about a tablespoon of lobster meat once we pried out what scraps we could from the shell. Got more lobster from the soup. Maybe fried works when not over cooked? Mentioned it to the waiter and he just blew it off. We were in a hurry to see a show so didn’t push it further.
