Upon arrival, we were greeted with the half smile of someone with a superiority complex and told that it would be a wait of 45 minutes to one hour. Not seeing this as an issue (as it was expected), we made our way to the bar.
The bar staff is absolutely superb. They were fast, attentive, very polite, and made excellent drinks! If this place had a primary focus on drinks and a secondary on food, I would have easily given it a much higher rating.
However, as it happens, we were there for the food.
After the first hour of waiting, it became apparent to us and others we had met at the bar, that this restaurant has a ‘help your friends first’ philosophy as we witnessed several people (who did not have reservations) arriving after us and being seated before us.
Finally after a two hour wait – filled with excuses like: “oh, we’re so busy”, and “we had reservations”, we were given a table.
Because of our excessive wait, we were offered free guacamole. This turned out to be the best part of the meal. We had three different types – each better than the last. The tacos, however, were small and really nothing special. Don’t get me wrong, they were better than fast food caliber, but in no way were they worthy of waiting over two hours.
Overall, for me, it was a really bad experience. If you’re looking for ambiance, social activity, and just having a couple of drinks, then I would say to try it. However, I would definitely not recommend this restaurant if you are, in any way, hungry.
