    This southwestern eatery has been making headlines since it opened in 2000. Food is made to order with the best ingredients, some flown in directly from New Mexico.

    Love this place! Food is delicious, service is great and they are very accommodating to special diet needs. Pro tip: this place tends to be more crowded in the winter (1+ wait) so come in the summer.

    Went for date night with my bf on Saturday night (definitely recommend reservations).Nice atmosphere but hard to have a conversation. Try the chocolate and banana cheesecake, enough for two to share

    Love this place! Especially the jalepeño margarita!!! Food is always delicious every time I go! Don't forget to try the appetizer corn! Always think of downtown LA corn carts...so good.

    The stuffed trout is amazing! Smoky and stuffed with mushrooms, crawfish, basil. The photo does not do it justice. A must try!
  • Nest Atlanta Real Estate Group
    Great spot for a romantic dinner - it's It is a little tight, so don't expect a lot of privacy. Try the Fish Tacos and/ or the Cayenne Fried Chicken (about $15).

    Great experience! We had a party of 27 and they were nothing short of amazing. Try the swordfish, meatballs, fried chicken, etc...and tip the valets no less than $5

    Hard to go wrong here. Margaritas are exceptional and food is top notch. Seafood dishes are always a good choice and the green chile stew has a nice kick that's perfect on a chilly night.

    Loved the agave salad: organic field greens, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, artichokes, and roasted sweet & spicy pecans in a herb & red wine citrus vinaigrette.

    If it’s date night you’re interested in, ask to be seated in the side room, where on a chilly night you may be able to enjoy a fireside dinner.

    Hatch green chiles are one of the most flavorful varieties, and yet we rarely see them used. Luckily, they're the main ingredient of this stew. Read more

    The "natural" margarita is well worth it, and not quite as sweet as a traditional margarita.

    Eh. Wanted to love it but didn't. Great atmosphere, but food didnt live up to the hype. Shortribs were dry. Calamari was ok. Chips and salsa were unremarkable. You'll be forgotten in the balcony.
