    Great outdoor seating! Perfect for a nice dinner on a sunny summer day! Food was decent, drinks were better!

    Tequila-based drinks abound, but bar manager Ryan Minch draws on a variety of spirits, from whiskey to wine, while still staying true to the restaurant's spirit. Try the the Jack Swindler.

    the Winning permutation | Picante margarita | chips and guac, flour chips | pork tacos : pork is marinated in cola :) | pick a sunny day and get a seat on the patio

    Dave is a terrific bartender and is super knowledgeable about tequila. Go for late night happy hour and ask for a top shelf recommendation. You won't be disappointed.

    If it nice out, make sure you sit on the patio. The foods too rich for my taste but the taps are only $5.

    Fantastic little patio and the grilled corn is superb (when it's in season and on the menu)!!

    The rooftop and view are great, but the food is also terrific. Excellent carnitas burrito!

    Not the best service, but good food, drinks and large outdoor patio. Lovely view of Lake Union and Gasworks park.

    Fish taco's, carnitas, and "don't eat the banana leaf" we're all really good. Excellent view.

    Great bar w/ knowledgable bartenders. Get the chips and gauc while chilling at the bar before getting a table.

    Service and overall vibe from staff was very unwelcoming toward families with small children. Disappointing since I live about a block away and would love a good Mexican restaurant nearby.

    I thought the Carna Asada was ok - I think it could have had more spice or uniqueness.

    Disgracefully bad service. Told there was a 45-minute wait for seats on the patio when it was half-empty and nobody was seated there for the 2 hours we were there. Won't be back.

    Worst Mexican food. How can a Salsa go wrong, tasted terrible. All the entrees we ordered were bad. It's a place only for drinks with a sober view.

    Save your money or eat task Mexican somewhere else. Food is flavorless and prices are way higher than they should be. Unfortunate given location and decor.

    Stay away. Crappy food and dismissive staff. Drinks are ok. The view is great but doesn't offset the shit show.
