Did lunch. Its a small place. Food is quality and service excellent. A bit pricey but worth it. Warm spinach salad sounds unappetizing but is really tasty. Go figure. I wouldnt take my kids here though, you probably need to be a foodie to really...More

I have always liked the food here, especially the Mama's Latin Fried Chicken and the Corn and Cheese Empanadas, but why I really like the most is the atmosphere. When you walk in you are transported to another place, like a cozy neighborhood big city...More

The food was great as was the service. The fried chicken, tri-tip and the corn/queso empanadas were the real standouts on the menu. Went here twice over the course of a 10 day business trip.

After seeing this place on Guy's show I had to try it when passing through. So glad I did. The chicken tenders were huge and the mango chutney, spot on! The house hot sauce was so good I bought a bottle.
