They had 7 weeks prior notice for a group of 21, and -- the night before when I called (for the fourth time) for final confirmation -- said they "don't take reservations." (Why didn't they mention that the first three times I'd called?) They did manage to figure it out when all 21 of us were standing inside the door, but I spoke to the manager before I left. (To compliment him on the fact that they'd evidently decided they wanted our business.) TWICE (yes, twice, because I wasn't sure he understood what I said the first time) the manager told me that they "didn't want the business" of large groups.If you've got more than 4 in your group, and you want Mexican food, go to Cazador's.
