They did try to make it up to us with free dessert. It’s too bad these restaurants can’t get the staff they need. I’ll go back cuz the food was worth it.

How would you summarize that menu? I would love to sample some of the Tequila or Mezcal but the prices are very high. I can’t imagine anyone orders the ones $75 and higher and there were a lot of those. Yes for a young people hang out or impress your date, no if you are a foodie.

The food was pretty bad. The meat on the tacos were dry and tough. The description was much better sounding than the actual flavor. The breading on the Korean chicken wings fell off as you tried to handle them. I would not go again.

We ordered the bag o chips with guacamole and salsa. The guacamole was delicious! I also ordered the queso cheese fondue and was not impressed. It was very bland tasting. We also ordered the Korean chicken wings as one of the starters..those were okay...didn't really move me. For dinner i ordered the baha. Mediterranean and lamb tacos, and a side of rice. The rice was delicious as well as the Mediterranean and baha taco. I didn't like the lamb taco...way too salty.

The cocktails we ordered were, well, weak. It’s fine I guess but we’re in a tequila bar… you ought to be able to taste it in the drinks. I didn’t say anything cuz my mom taught me to be nice. $12-15 bucks for an alcoholic beverage that didn’t hint at it’s contents seems strange though. The food was good. Not great but good. I had one of each of the tacos. They were tasty but there was nothing with them. We had the elotes avocado toast and banana fritters for appetizers. The toast was wonderful. Maybe the best thing we had. The fritters… underwhelming. So much more was expected. Like the presence of bananas maybe? Overall not a bad experience but it could have been better.

The Cajun and the Bao-Mi were both just as delicious. I ordered mine with no cilantro. They are smaller tacos but perfect for me. Our waitress, Leah, was great.

They didn’t have the bao buns which was disappointing because I really wanted to try that item. Again the service wasn’t great though she was nice enough. The food was good overall.

The poke nachos appetizer was the best thing we got there. The handhelds were mostly over cooked chewy meat and portions were very small. Our server was very pleasant and it was very clean. The drinks were very strong and not enjoyable. It was a very expensive dinner for such disappointment.
