From the moment we walked in the door, we knew this place was a step above your average mexican restaurant. Its not often you see the guests hugging the waiter on the way on the door. Its a really freindly welcoming atmosphere. The menu is very creative and the margaritas...so far one of the best I've found in LA.
Love this place! The staff is absolutely amazing, even when it's a super busy night. The signature margarita comes with a different high-end tequilla every day and they pour the tequilla into your margarita at your table, leaving a little left in the shot glass so you can try it. Their specials are always a good choice, and while the food doesn't blow you away there are a couple of dishes I could eat every week (I'm looking at you, shrimp fajitas).

Unlike the previous review, we went for dinner at 8pm on a Thursday and the place was 25% full. No problem walking in to a mostly empty restaurant. Parking was plentiful and the restaurant on Venice Blvd. just east of Abbot Kinney is an easy spot with it's huge sign. The dinner menu offered nice options, we had chicken enchiladas (overcooked but flavorful) and swordfish (very nice). The ceviche and garlic spinach quesadilla appetizers were good. The lighting and ambiance were bad. Service was alright, having had at least for different waiters serve us was a bit confusing. Had to ask for more cold chips. The entres run from $13 to 17 so reasonable for the quality of food we had. We may go back for the food, but the lighting may keep us away.
