Rare to find a restaurant with a New Mexico flair....this was top notch. Great, creative menu. We tried the pork chop, salmon and mahi. All fantastic. Great happy hour menu with some fantastic food and great prices from 4:00-6:00.

We ate here twice while staying in the area. The wait staff is super, made excellent recommendations. Be sure to check out their happy hour specials. The Diablo Eggs were really good. Service was fast and portions were generous.

The place is OK. Menu selection is poor. The staff was wonderful and attentive! Seating both in and out. We have been multiple times over the years and just have trouble finding anything we want on their menu.

Very nice enviroment unfortunately the person who sat us at a table did not greet us. Her greeting was "Follow me". Very disappointing. We left after being sitting down because I did not want to support an establishment that was not welcoming :(

Ate a delicious dinner there with family and friends. Their signature cocktails were not great, but the food made up for it. There is a bit of heat to some of their dishes. If you are sensitive to hot food. I would ask for details...More
