Selected our lunch from the Summer Restaurant Week menu. We had the ceviche de pescado (flounder) and tacos de cochinita (braised pork, it was really good) and the guac trio. We were nearly full by the time we were done with the apps.
For our entrees, we had the pescado a la talla (tilapia) and enchiladas de carnitas (this is like the appetizer only dressed up differently).
We chose the coconut flan for dessert. I've had better flan.
The noise level high compared to how many people were in the restaurant. It's not a large place and there weren't that many people and yet it was so noisey.

The guac was less than average, not prepared fresh...and i wonder exactly when it was prepared? The red creamy sauce served with the guac was the highlight!
No fresh salsa and chips when you sit down, either. The only chips we got were with the guac.
The tacos were less than authentic... any true mexican place serves its meat on a double layer of flour tortiallas. here you only get one? weirdo...
tacos al pastor very disappointing pork.. tasted like it could have been prepared for a barbeque joint. it was gross.. i had to douse it in habanero sauce to get it down. doesnt this dish traditionally have cilantro and onions?????
the other two in my party liked the beef tacos.
dessert was best part of meal... flan yummy... chorizzos warm, and though greasy, not bad with the sauce
the waitress seemed annoyed at first, but did warm up at the end

This place is amazing.
Delicious & Gourmet tasting Mexican food.
You can taste the passion that goes into making the drinks & dishes here!
Super friendly staff!
It's in a great location!
You must try their ""Frutas Guacamole"" it is such a unique combination of tastes and flavors!
Their chipotle salsa on the side is equally delicious!
For an entree, I ordered the eggplant, lentil and plantain dish...wow! It was an explosion of spices and flavors.
I highly recommend getting the ""Sandia margarita"" its so good. Its fresh crushed watermelon and lime!
They have so many tequila's here, drink until you can't drink anymore! Oh and the free shots of tequila we were offered went down so smooth!
I can't wait to go back again! This is NOW my favorite restaurant!!

Always a favorite. The food is brilliant and the service warm and kind. The Shrimp Tacos are fantastic and the hongos truffle quesadilla is ridiculous. The management always welcoming and my favorite server Sylvia is the sweetest. Warm and cozy decor. For midtown this place is great!
