    My girlfriend and I had high hopes for this restaurant. Unfortunately neither of us could finish our meals. The drinks were great, but the the food was sorely lacking.

    their "enchilada" is shitty tacos with some sauce drizzled over, which leads me to believe their tacos are bad too.

    Pro: guacamole at your table. Cons: overpriced, poor wait time estimation skills, disgusting ladies bathroom.

    Good food. Good drinks. Kinda stuck up--Refused to sit three outside but instead wanted us to wait 45 min because those 5 empty tables only sit 3.

    The atmosphere here is the life of Santana Row! If the music is loud and the people are lively then the rest of the Row follows suit. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Margaritas are strong! Arrow Blanco con platanos fritos and tostadas de tinga were delicious... Otherwise rather overpriced tapas
