FIRST TIME CUSTOMER REVIEWMy food came cold, when I was asked if I wanted it hot/warm/cold. I specifically said hot. No waiter came and asked if we wanted refills on drinks. All waiters were crowded in the back right corner of the restaurant. When we were finished dining, no waiter came to give us our check either.This place could do much better with its customer service. Sadly, first impressions are very important and missed the ball on this one..
A good bite of food and real quick service.
Full disclaimer; it will be hard to live up to some very good international Latino seafood places we have eaten at. We are an early dinner (around 5pm) and Got seated right away and service was very good. The presentations as you will see in the photos make the food look really good, but that was not the case. They start you off with some chips and very average ceviche. We ordered chicharrón de pescado for an appetizer but were disappointed. We were hoping for some nice crunchy skin, but received some moderately crunchy skin with about a 1/4” of meat. My wife got campechana and did not like it at all (5/10). My son got shrimp tacos and did not like them very well and said the sauce that was put in them tasted like a mixture of ketchup and mayonnaise (6.5/10). My daughter got Pasta Costa Brava and did not like it, nor could she finish it. She is a shrimp lover, but couldn’t even eat the shrimp,so I helped. I would say that they boiled the shrimp separate and just added them after the fact (4/10). I got Camarones Al Mojo De Ajo and really liked the shrimp, lowered my rating because the rice was not very good (7/10).
Stopped here after long day of sightseeing. A marachi bad was playing, a bit loud but entertaining. As I had never been here before, I let my table mates order. We started out with chips and a fresh crab salsa thing. Yummy...didn't even mind that one at the table was double dipping! Then raw oysters with a spicy Pico on th. Then some seasoned mussels. For main course we had a seafood pot, large enough for two of us to share. It was choked full of different seafood, lobster, crab, octopus, white fish, shrimp, all bathing in a wonderfully seasoned broth.
FINALLY SOME DELICIOUS SEAFOOD. JUST THE WAY THEY MAKE IT BACK HOME
The High Price For The Novice Food , No Real Flavor, I Ordered Three Tacos de Pescado, I Didnt Even Finish The First Taco, Left My Unfinished Plate, Paid My Bill & Left Definitely will not be returning
Todo muy delicioso y la mesera siempre nos toca la mísma muy Amable 100% recomendada las islas marias
muy buenos platillos, y exelente servicio y tienen buenos precios.
Always great food. But the services was to be desired tonight. Usually great service but the server I had tonight. Asked for more of the salsa that comes with the chips and she forgot twice. Asked another server and brought me salsa with too much lime and the chili's was crudos. Seemed like it was just raw chili's with raw tomatoes and lime blended together. My food was perfect though very well cooked and delicious ??
This place has ok seafood. Little to high priced. But whats the worst part is these waitress ARE THE WORST. They dont wash hands&they tack on their own Tip. Like for reals me and a coworker went to eat lunch there and when bill came i was like what is the 12.00 dollars for she told me her tip. I told her no i will decide what you get not you. She told us we had to pay bill. Fyi separate checks for me and friend each of us had 12.00 tip on our 18.29 bill gor food and drinks. Fyi manager was unavailable. Was hiding in office. NEVER EVER GOING HERE AGAIN!
The place is decent and spacious, music was very annoying semi- full bar the two big complaints were the sauce used for the Molcajete Cora was extremely salty and last but not least their prices are in the high range, by the way do not order the fettuccine with shrimp it's on the tasteless side.
Got a frijita and wasn't as good as hoped
Best experience ever the waitress was very friendly and willing to teach me how to use the touchless manu it was new for me she took the time to show how too with a smile on her face thanks ANA for u good customer service
I LOVED this place so much, only select things on the menu are good but the ones that are, amazing!! Customer service, not so good. I come here alot with family, and recently friends. The staff ignores you on purpose, they disrespect you and they don't care because they just work there and don't own the place. I used to love this place so much and for his much money they were making off of us playing music, buying drinks, and always ordering lots of food and leaving amazing tip! Just wasn't fair for them to treat us like that when we have never treated them like that. I'm very disappointed and will only be going to the Portland location now. The waiters name who disrespected was named Angelica.
Food is "Meh" compared to how it was 2 years ago , waitresses are always nice (:
