    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 good.

    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

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

    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.

    I went there twice, want to go back again. Can't go wrong with key lime pie for dessert, one of the best I've ever had.

    Everything is great! Keep coming back until you have eaten everything on the menu at least once. Always finish with Peanut Butter Pie. It's got a kick!

    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

    Ceviche was awesome, as were the scallops and flat-iron steak! A little on the pricey side, but food was top-notch.

    Crave from the Grave: You can't go wrong with the Cayenne Fried Chicken. Mmm...tasty. Best margaritas in the city too. While you're in the n'hood stop on by Oakland!

    The stuffed trout is a must. It is unbelievable how good it is. There are no words. Best birthday meal I've ever had!

    The Peachtree Margarita is pretty tasty. Just don't make the mistake of not making a reservation/being seated in the loft area.

    With the savvy shopper coupon, this is the best deal in the city. I have never had anything that wasn't delicious and never brought anyone here that didn't love it.

    Fried chicken is amazing. Guacamole is so so, but the chips and salsa are excellent. Margaritas are not to be missed

    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.
