    Menu not great and food was very bland. Margaritas were limited and not very good. Service was ok but 20% was auto-added so it seemed liked there was no incentive for the server to give good service. Also, additional 3.5% tip for the kitchen automatically added to our bill, but the food wasn’t very tasty and it wasn’t super busy so I’m not sure why it was added.

    The service has gotten better. A little slow at times but the food is so good you don’t mind waiting.

    We ate off of the "event menu," which was quite limited. The portions were small and the prices were high. Service was barely minimal, the waiter essentially ghosted us after we ordered. Our appetizer didn't arrive until after the meal was brought to the table. When we finished we then waited easily 25-30 minutes before we got our check.
