The food was delicious and the service impeccable. The music was so loud it was impossible to have a conversation. We are in our sixties so maybe we were too old and the restaurant is geared for a younger crowd.

A pesar de los comentarios que dejé al momento de hacer la reserva y que llegamos cuando el restaurante estaba vacío , nos dieron una mesa terrible. En pleno paso y junto al stand de los meseros.

El restaurante no tiene nada espectacular, ni a sabor ni ambiente, las personas que te reciben te tratan como si te hicieran un favor, pese a que se hizo reservacion aun asi te hacen esperar como 10min, te venden en internet un trompo pequeño de pastor que no es ni la mitad. los meseros son lo unico que se salvan, ya que su trato es amable.

Food and presentation was outstanding. The crab tacos were amazing. Wish I could have taken photos but the restaurant was super dark you couldn't see your food. It was also extremely loud the music was overwhelming and made conversation impossible. It is more of a night club seen with dinning expectations.

The experience was good as always, this was out second time at this restaurant and it was a far better experience than the first one. We got a better table and the service was very good. The drinks are amazing, try the lychee martini, to die for! Music a bit too loud bit I guess it goes with the restaurant theme.

El servicio es lento y todo es bueno, pero el hecho de que no separen bien áreas de no fumar, hechan a perder toda la experiencia. Nos tuvimos que salir por qué es un asco estar oliendo cigarro mientras comes.
Comida excelente, servicio lento.

Todo fue excelente a excepción de la recepción, a pesar de tener la reserva el tiempo de espera fue de 45 minutos y las hostess no tienen la mínima seña de educación básica y se la pasan en su teléfono sin dar una adecuada atención de calidad a los clientes. Ojo en los detalles

La experiencia de inicio fue mala. A pesar de tener reservación, no la respetan y te hacen esperar una hora para darte mesa. Eso fue lo peor, y afecta tu estado de ánimo para el resto de la comida.
El volumen de la música es muy alto, para ser un restaurant y no se puede platicar.
La comida es buena, pero los precios me parecieron excesivos.
En conclusión no lo recomendaría.

Mi cita era 19.30 y me asignaron mesa 20.10, considero que por ser el tipo de lugar que es deberían evitar este tipo de retrasos, de ahí en fuera todo lo demás estuvo excelente.
