Had to wait 45 minutes to get a table but it was worth it. The food is pricey but it was delicious. Our server, Osmar, did a great job and the food came out fast. The place was very clean.

Really good dinner. 8 of us had a great experience here. The food was fresh and very well prepared. Plan on a wait. But, it is worth it.
