    Was good, but not 50 dollars for 2 people good. I can say the guac. Made at the table is definitely something to try if your gonna go here.

    To make the guac better, ask for a wedge of lime, squeeze it in. The. Add a little salt, stir and enjoy!!

    Ask for Tara as your server. She's the absolute best.

    Try anything with the steak in it, because it's spectacular.

    They use iStockphoto images for their drink menus. How do I know? Because the watermark on the image says so :)

    Food was good although service was extremely SLOW. We waited over 10 minutes for a drink order then another 10 to 15 minutes to order our entries.

    They don't do a good job of honoring reservations. We finally got our table 30 minutes late. We weren't the only ones.
