    We booked our reservation for 9:30 on a Saturday, and arrived at 9:15 and checked in. It was over an hour wait for our table and when we checked in with the desk, they were dismissive and we were always the “next table”. It is clear they overbook the restaurant and prioritize turnover rather than a good experience for patrons. The restaurant inside is also incredibly loud and it is very difficult to talk and hear over the music and the crowd noise. Elegance is not a word I would use to describe this restaurant. If you are looking for a luxury experience in San Diego, this is not for you.

    We had a reservation at 8:00 - upon arrival at 8:00 we were told it would be 20 -30 minutes before our table would be ready...at 8:30 I asked about or table and was told 10 more minutes...at 8:40 was told we were next..we were seated at 9:00. Had to flag down our sever to order and we finally got our food at 10:00. I asked the hostess why make a reservation when they cant keep their timing organized and she said because "people don't leave" well guess why they don't leave? They are seated late and the food takes forever. Horrible time management. Bar was packed so no place to sit and wait. Lots and lots of people standing around waiting. Food was good but it was so late before we ate we had lost our appetite and took ost of it home in a to-go box.

    The food is awful for the price! It’s so expensive and not worth $$$ plus it was so loud in there we couldn’t even talk! My friend really wanted to try it because she was coming to visit but we were all so disappointed.

    My husband had carnitas and I had shrimp tacos, both were very tasty, but pricey. Staff was very friendly and water glass was never empty. The ambiance was stunning. We will be returning the next time we are in San Diego to try other items on the menu as this visit we were limited on time due to prior engagement.

    This used to be our favorite place to dine at when are in Coronado but this time the experience was mediocre at best. Hostess was rude at arrival, service was SLOW(although are server was nice and accommodating), and the food average at best. Unfortunately, the worst part was the nightclub atmosphere that fully engulfs this place by 8:00(literally could not get to the bathroom). Probably won’t be back.

    It’s a little loud and a little pricey but the price makes sense for the ambience. The food was delicious. I felt like I was in TULUM!

    The service was lacking, I think the waiter had too many tables as it was busy. They brought out fajitas with no tortillas and we had to keep asking for drink refills. The tables around us got their food before we did but we ordered before they did and all with the same waiter. For the price they charge, the server should be more attentive.

    We had to wait for an hour to get in with a reservation. No one was tending to us and put off our questions with the same response.
