The restaurant was nice with a great rooftop deck. Our server was fine just not very friendly.

Fun colorful place with a cool vibe! Although the menu looks very casual, the food was quite good. The layout of the place is very hip and offers both young and old and great time!

It was Taco Tuesday and the restaurant was buzzing. The tacos were good, the rice and beans were great, and guacamole was very fresh. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Great spot - delicious tacos, starters and margaritas. Disappointed we couldn't do dinner on the rooftop - it was a gorgeous night. Fun, casual ambiance but loud and hard to hear others.

Server was dry and not friendly. He realized the group was not liking his vibe so he gave us shots on the house. There was a hair in the food and the meal was replaced but we still had to pay for it. Sushi tacos (came with 3 tacos) were bite sized and completely overpriced! Rooftop is for drinks only. The bar on the roof was only serving canned beer. We had to go up and down 2 flights of stairs to the main bar for drinks. The bartender at the main bar was chatting with 1 person for 10 minutes before taking our drink order. The rooftop was harshly lit and table umbrellas were open (it was 10pm) and covering the mural which is the beauty of the rooftop. There is no city view so the mural is the only view worth seeing. Inside the restaurant had great music and a dope vibe but you could barely hear the music on the rooftop and the vibe was more like a courtyard. I will not be gong back.

My friends and I loved the place, ambiance is very captivating. We had the Bluberry-Coconut Margarita and we couldn't just have one, so we went for the pitcher! Prices are very good. Would definitely go back!!

we had a late reservation for a group of 7, of which 2 lost their phones in an uber so we needed another 40 mins till everyone arrived and they were so accomodating on a friday night. the mushroom quesedilla was great, and the mule over mexico drink was delicious and refreshing. they have a dj and the volume goes up and lights go down at 10pm....which may lead you to just stick around and have a few more drinks after dinner.

The portion size are really small for the price. The alcohol is expensive as well. Draft beer is $9. I left hungry, but spent over $50 once I closed my tab. It’s a great party vibe, but definitely need to pregame elsewhere.

Great food, drinks and music! Loved the guacamole with pork belly and the blueberry coconut margarita. Very lively and overall fun spot. After dinner we went up to the rooftop but it is on the smaller side and it was packed. Will be back.

At first we got a waiter that wasn’t friendly, barely communicated with us, and before even acknowledging us he took a very long time. Our appetizers and entrees all came out pretty much at the same time which we had to ask the manager to take the entrees away so that they wouldn’t get cold. Unfortunately one of the plates was crispy fish tacos, needless they were no longer crispy so we couldn’t really enjoy them. It was maybe mid service when this waitress started taking care of us and that made such a difference. She was very friendly and polite and engaging. After many shots and drinks later we asked for the bill, and she actually got us two free shots which was a nice lil touch.

Disgusting - we were a party of 4 and kept asked to leave because there was a bigger party arriving soon, the check was given to us without asking, and told that the next party was waiting for the table, we had just ordered a other drink and spent over $300.00 dollars, don't go to this place unless you just want to have a drink k and pay over priced and be thrown out. A very bad place. VERY VERY BAD STAY AWAY.

Great ambience! The patio/rooftop section is too small so be there very early if that’s the vibe you’re going for. Otherwise the bar area on the first floor is pretty cool. Be careful with the “happy hour” margaritas. We order 3 rounds and when the check came, they had charged us the regular price margaritas. The bartender never said to us that the “happy hour” ones were there seasonal ones and we had ordered the classic ones.

We had a reservation for 5:15 and they told us about 6 times that we needed to be out by 6:45 for another party. If you have a reservation, you should be granted at least 2 hours and there is no need to remind the table multiple times.

At one point, two of the guests were in the bathroom and we had already paid the check and were clearly waiting for them to come back so we could leave. We still had 10 minutes and the sever still came up to us and said "I know the other two guests are in the bathroom, and you are waiting for them, but you need to leave in 10 minutes" SO RUDE.

Service was really not good. We ordered drinks that never came and they still tried to charge us for them. The food was extremely hit or miss. One dish was delicious and the other was not good at all. It was also really loud, but we did expect that. Overall this restaurant isn’t bad but it also isn’t good.

The two young hostesses did everything they could to accommodate us after missing our reservation. They were super friendly and professional. The waiter was nice as well. The food, ambiance and drinks were disappointing. I expected more from this place. The rooftop is small but looks fun. You have to buy your drinks downstairs and bring them up to the rooftop.
Didn’t really like this place. But very friendly staff.
