Had the Enchiladas and the lobster one is most definitely the better of the two. Also had Ceviche and it was very tasty. Our entire group loved the food, but the drinks were not great at all.

This is an Cal/Mex fusion restaurant w/a seafood emphasis. Outdoor patio overlooking ocean was great. Many options for gluten free eater. Here are my beautiful tacos made w/rice paper and ahi tuna w/Sriracha sauce. It was divine and super fresh. Great rita too!

You don't come here for special food. It isn't bad, but neither is it memorable. When it's not crowded, you can linger over brunch and they take care of you nicely. But on weekends, forget it--a mob, huge lines, hectic and sloppy service, and just...More

Great views and good food partially make up for the unreasonable prices and wait staff that treat customers like parts on a production line.

Our dining companion made a reservation for dinner two weeks in advance, directly with the restaurant. He called to confirm the reservation the afternoon we were to dine. When we arrived at the restaurant the reservation had disappeared. "Happens all the time," the hostess said....More
