Fantastic service and food. One of the top restaurants in Long Island. The Guacamole is made fresh at the table. Choices are vast. Moderate priced. Still high end.

Expensive Mexican food. Service was spotty. Long delays in getting water glasses refilled as well as chips and salsa. Restaurant was uncomfortably hot as the doors were left open in 90° weather. There are better more reasonably priced option in the area.
