This place is wonderful, we have been eating here the past 4yrs. At times there may be a bit of a wait for your food but I have noticed that only happens when I go with a group. I believe they are trying to let you enjoy the atmosphere. The Steak al diablo is awesome, I recently ventured out of my norm and tried the mole enchiladas and I was delighted. The people are great, they smile and our pleasant. My husband and I have gone there for just drinks on several occasions after a long day at work. If you are capable of holding a conversation with new people this is the place, they are attentive and just genuinely good people trying to make something of their business. They also have artwork, not to my taste as I am somewhat conservative but from my husbands point of view it is very modern and worth taking a look at. I just won't let him purchase any for our home. The reason for not giving a 5 star is, I never do, you have to be perfect and last time I checked that was reserved for someone not on this earth. :-)

I had been reading a lot of reviews about this place and decided to try it. We wanted to go for a friend's birthday, I happened to find a restaurantcom coupon and purchased one just two days before. I made a reservation but and obviously didn't need one since there was only 1 table occupied. That should tell you something.
When we sat down, the gentlemen came over and gave us water and menus. Since there were four of us, we decided we would each try something different and get appetizers to start off with.
Here where the awful experience came in. I decided to lay the coupon on the table to provide them with the information. A woman came over to begin to take our order (I think she was the owner) and looked down and told me she was not taking the coupon that I purchased. I told her that I had just purchased it and she said it was not her fault that restaurantcom had not removed it and that she keeps losing money. She also stated the coupon would not have been allowed for alcohol, seafood & steak. (I purchased a $100.00 certificate and it did not indicate anything on there). It
