    The ceviche and tortilla soup was very tasty. Pitcher of margaritas went down easy. Loved the authentic hand made tortillas. Looking forward to trying more dishes.

    Uncertain it measures up to the hype but it certainly was nice with outdoor seating and caters to hotel and theater crowds. It's pricey for Mexican but it's LA! The $5 parking offsets the meal cost.

    Cucumber jalapeño margarita is fantastic. Ceviche tostadas are so fresh and tasty esp if you love lots of fresh lime. A little messy to eat though.

    Important the VIP 15% special checking does not include happy hour! Even though the special does not inform you. This is bs and would avoid this place even the manager will not honor the discount.
