Our latest dining experience could be classified as excellent from start to finish. We had mojitos and sangria ($2.50 during happy hour) at the bar, and ordered a tostada de ceviche. The mojitos were excellent, the sangria fresh and fruity, and the ceviche was tasty and tangy, just the right starter for the evening. Our bartender was... attentive and provided great service even though there wasn't a single empty seat at the bar. An auspicious start to what turned out to be a wonderful culinary journey. We were seated promptly when our party members arrived and started our meal with one of the entrees. The pork ribs, were abundant (it looked like an entire rack of ribs), flavorful, tender, meaty, and finger licking good . We polished it off with gusto, looking forward to what lay ahead. Our entrees soon arrived looking very artful in their presentation with mounds of rice shaped like pyramids. The Jalapeno Glazed Salmon over White rice was the best dish of the night - the seasoning and the marriage of flavors are brilliant, winning combination. The spinach and sweet potato enchelada was also very good. The desserts were also a revelation - the flan (I ordered it with the sauce on the side) , light and airy and so-so good. The meal came out to about $35 per couple before tip. Considering we all had cocktails and 3 courses (shared the appetizers and desserts) this was an excellent value for the quality of the food we sampled. The food IS worth what you pay. And I could not ask for better service of waitstaff that obviously take pride in their restaurant. People know good food, and if the crowd tonight was anything to go by (the entire restaurant was packed to the hilt on a Friday night), they know they will find it at Cielo Mexican Bistro. I certainly did.
I have been to this store two times now and have not been disappointed! The first time I bought at Billy Reid shirt that retailed for $185.00 for only $25. Today, I found another Billy Reid shirt for $30 and an all linen Ralph Lauren long sleeve shirt that was on the clearance rack for $15. Wow! The upside to shopping here is that the owner is very nice and helpful, the size selection is pretty good, and you can find really great deals if you know what you need and take the time to go through the racks. The downside to shopping here is that you will find a few lower brand names, that while in good condition, are a bit overpriced - so be sure to do your homework and know what they cost in regular stores. I was a bit disappointed in their shoe selections - too many larger size shoes and not enough middle sizes, also ties are all mixed up on the ties racks and prices while inexpensive, tend to be all over the place. It would be nice if they would place all the higher end brand name ties in a specific rack or case separate from the regular or low end brands. My other complaint is that the dressing rooms are a bit tight to change in and none have any mirrors in them - you have to step into the hall to see how things fit. Lastly, the young girl that works there is nice but not really knowledgeable about men's clothes in regards to sizes and brands. Overall, however, I like the store and will continue to go back. Next time I might try to consign some of my older clothes and see how much I can earn.
I ordered an outfit and had it sent to the local store. They called me when they got it in and had me to come in to get it altered just the way I like it. I'm very picky about how things fit me and so is my husband and son. The owner got my husband and son Ties and hankerchief to match perfectly with my outfit fabric wise. She even got my god-daughter a perfect pair of pretty big lace socks to match our cloths. Perfect for professional pictures. The sock are not those ordinary plain white socks.She personnally makes them custom ordered. One time i told her i had two black tie affairs to go to, and i told her what i was looking for and she personelly did the shopping for me, by things i had bought before. I looked like the Queen of the night by the time she got through with me. I wish I could post my pictures. The web site is great and I have also called to find out by each name brand how it would fit me. She will tell me if i need to go up or down in the size. Delivery is great when i am out of town. I love the attention when I call, her name is Brenda and all i have to tell her is my price range and she goes from there. And thanks to her my 7year old god-daughter won first prize at a pageant. The dress was unlike no other.
