    Food was good. Way way way too loud in the large back dining area. Had to scream to hear each other. Extremely poor acoustics back there when busy.

    Dear Guest, Thank you for mentioning how much you enjoyed the delicious food we served. When the space for Tía Carmen was being remodeled, we embraced the high, arched ceilings as a cathedral-like element to the restaurant. It gives us depth to enjoy the grandeur of the space, and we took advantage of the ceiling height. With how popular we have become, we understand that people’s excitement about the restaurant can result in a cacophony of laughter and talking. We do our best to mitigate these issues by adding elements to absorb this sound. If you can share where you were sitting, we can look into this particular area of the restaurant in closer detail. Thank you again; we look forward to hearing from you. Atentamente, Maritza Portillo General Manager

    I had high hopes for this restaurant. I was excited for the opening since I last visited the hotel while it was being built. The food was just ok. I had the guisado and my husband had the pork chop. Both were decent. The turmeric rice was not seasoned at all and the street corn wasn't great. Just half raw corn sprinkled with a little seasoning. I just wasn't wowed and in my opinion very over priced. The music was so loud where we were sitting and we couldn't hear our waiter when she was talking. The decor was meh. Also, the manager of the restaurant came and spoke to every table around us, several times even, but never came to speak to us. Why? We thought that was strange and kind of rude. I'll end on a positive. The flan with manchego cheese was pretty delicious. Would come back just for dessert next time.
