    The food was good but the WORST service we have ever had. Our waiter was non-existent. Came to take our order and when we said we had questions, he said I'll be back. Took 15 minutes to come back. Finally placed our order and asked for another drink and water, but we never got either. Told the person that brought out the food but still nothing was done. Our waiter re-appeared when we were done with our meal and when we complained he didn't have anything to say. We were upset to have had such a bad night out. Definitely won't be returning.

    Everything was good except for the fact that the music was way too loud for a Tuesday Lunch. I asked the hostess if they could turn it down but they never did.

    My husband and I went to Talavera with friends. I found that they gave us just a few tortillas to eat with the queso frito. we were four people! Also, they made a mistake and brought an extra glass of wine that we didn't order. My husband and I ordered soup, so when we were having our soup, the whole order of tacos for the whole table arrived and of course, we hadn't finished our soup and there was not space for the plates. The waiter didn't care, he just pushed the plates and made room for the tacos, and of course later, nobody came to picked up the soup plates when we were done. We ended up eating cold tacos. Poor service. It's a shame, I've been coming to this place since they opened. I've have seen the quality going up and down either in service and food. I guess last night we weren't lucky, but excellent restaurants are the ones that their food and service is good every single time you go.

    Esperabamos pasar una cena de año nuevo especial en familia y no fue para nada así, no se podia ni hablar con el volumen tan alto de la música, se supone que es un lugar para comer no un club de noche, las porciones de comida muy pequeñas y el servicio bastante regular, no recomendaría este lugar para una cena o comida familiar, fue muy decepcionante y frustrante nuestra cena de año nuevo.

    We were able to easily make reservations. Unfortunately two members of our party were running late, however the hostess in the front made it very easy to accommodate and change our reservation in order to get a table once the rest of the party joined. The food and ambiance was great, however service could have been a bit better had to get up in order to get water, utensils and be able to place our food and drink orders as the waiter was not near or around our outside seating area. Overall expeirence was good however would have been great if service during our dinning was better.

    6:45pm party of 3. Didn’t get our order taken until 30 minutes after being seated. It was wayyyyyy to loud. We sat inside. We couldn’t hear each other talk at all. Food was average. We were happy to leave.

    Decent food but it has fallen off a bit after the recent revamping. The drinks arrived after we had finished our appetizers and the food was more bland than before. Not bad, but we were used to a better experience in the past.

    The restaurant is very chic and modern. The food menu is not your typical Mexican food but rather an added fusion of different cuisines making the experience wonderful. I absolutely loved my chicken and beans it was delicious- this place is a must try for sure. Different items on the menu to select all with their own unique flair. Is a bit pricey but well worth it specially that the food, ambiance and overall experience is amazing. The valet parking in front is very convenient as well. Definitely recommend this place!

    Since the renovations, this place is just not the same. It used to be our go to for Mexican and one of our favorite spots. The chips and delicious sauce are gone. All of the good margaritas are no longer on the menu. The dishes are smaller portions, poor presentation, and just don’t taste fresh. We won’t be returning and are so very disappointed to be crossing this one off of our favorite restaurants list.
