    Food was good! Not stellar as the fried chicken in the chicken and waffles was dry/over cooked and the hot Cheetos elote was more or less normal Cheetos with some spice to it. Otherwise everything was incredibly flavorful and well done! Service was excellent, and the ambiance was very modern/social. Would come back!

    Loudest restaurant we have ever been to in our life. We couldn’t hear the server or ourselves talk. Our son was covering his ears. We ended up leaving because the noise was that intense.

    Extremely poor customer service and mediocre food. We were rushed, denied our reserved table and servers lacked professionalism. Will not be coming here again.

    Food was 10/10 even though it was slightly expensive. I would highly recommend the chips and guac as well as the empanadas. Drinks weren't absurdly expensive for being in Boston. We got sat in the private back room and it was quiet and very comfortable.

    So my husband and I got a reservation weeks ago because we were celebrating our anniversary and hadn’t been there in 2 years. The only time they had available was at 3 so we were like ok fine early dinner. We get there to find out they only serve brunch til 3:45 and then the kitchen is closed til 5… we were like ok we’ll make the best of this. We get there and it took 10 minutes to seat us for no reason… because we had a resy they knew we were coming…Then the girls next to us basically were having a photo shoot and kept moving around and we had a screaming child on the other side. It took almost 20 minutes for someone to come and take our drink order. And they took the peoples order next to us before ours and they showed up AFTER us. The chips and salsa were straight up bad. It took so long to get our margaritas so we both decided to leave and go elsewhere. The waitress came super fast with the check of all things… Their menu is so limited and weird now. Not a fan. Won’t be back.

    Food was pretty good but a disappointing salad that seemed like it had been thrown together (avocado still has skin on too!) lowered the food standard.

    It was my birthday dinner and it went pretty well but we were in a super loud and dark back room with a party of like 25. I think once they left they forgot about us because we didn't have a single person come to us for 20+ minutes. We did want a birthday dessert but at that point we just got the check and left. The food was good but not really worth the experience unfortunately.

    Overall great food and vibe. Loved my sangria, guacamole, fish tacos, crispy carnitas tacos and churros. Kids ages 10-18 all found something they liked. Excellent waitres, was sensitive and careful regarding our teen with shellfish allergy. Only negatives were TV was very loud and bathroom could've been bit cleaner. Would recommend to friends and go again.

    I have not been disappointed by a restaurant to this extent. It was our anniversary dinner and we had made a reservation almost a month in advance. We politely asked to be seated at a different table as we were celebrating and were given attitude from the host. Then the server just would not smile and barely checked up on us to ask us how we were doing. She looked like she was being forced to work there or just did not like us. The food came so quick, the jalopeno chips were stale and the food was cold. The cauliflower was raw and not cooked properly. We noticed that only certain people were taken to be seated at the table where we would have been seated. It felt discriminatory. My husband would never come back here and would definitely discourage others from visiting.

    An absolute MUST try! We went for my friend's 21st birthday and found it to be the perfect place for a great drink, amazing tapas-style dishes, and cute pics! Definitely a place where the bright decor and hilarious drink names are targeted for the girls so it makes for a great GNO! We tried the fish tacos (best ever), empanadas, and enchiladas and we were completely satisfied. Their "citrus & salt" marg was clean and refreshing. You cannot leave without trying the churros which are more like donut holes and will rock your world. Not to mention their homemade chips were like a better Dorito.

    we made a reservation 3 weeks in advance and when we arrived we we’re walked through the main area to a back room with 4 tables, in the dark, barely could hear the music, next to the kitchen. I was sitting next to a bucket and mops. We asked to be moved considering we had made a reservation and came all the way from philly but we’re told no. The drinks were good but the food was just okay. Overall, disappointed .
