    Amazing experience. Food is always good. I’ve been here many times but this time I brought my parents who have mobility issues. Staff treated as if they were part of their family. Holding doors, helping up them up or down stairs, or slowing down. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Excellent food. Very good drinks. Very noisy. The waiter had almost to shout to let himself listened,which doesn’t sound very welcoming.

    It’s extremely loud in there. We had to shout when talking and even then couldn’t really hear each other. It totally wrecked the dinner.

    Food was amazing. Our server forgot about us. Everything we ordered came out backwards. We got our tacos and quesadilla first. Chips and Guac well after that. Server never checked on us and had to flag him to ask about our drinks that we ordered. He clearly forgot and by the time we got them the ice was melted and they were luke warm. It takes me so much to say any negative thing about a restaurant but it was an expensive margarita that was clearly dying on the bar for almost a half hour. We had all of our food delivered and on our table for almost a half hour before we got our drinks. It just took so long before anyone came over to check on us after our food delivered. Nothing bad to say about the food it was really delicious. Service was disappointing.

    Food was great, but the volume and overall intensity level was too much. Service was just ok; a little slow and not particularly friendly.

    Oyamel takes you to Mexico for dinner and has you back in time for work the next morning.
