    pay a lot-leave hungry

    we had to wait 20 some minutes after the time they had made the reservation for to be seated at our table. It was the weekend and they were busy. One would think they would comp you a beverage & munchies if you have to wait because they are not ready for you, but no, they didn't. None of the group drinks alcohol, so I can't address the offerings from the bar. Our server was very nice and well trained, but the food was very slow in coming, so perhaps they were shorthanded in the kitchen. Good thing we did not have somewhere to go after dinner as we would have been late. I won't go through what everyone ordered, but we all ordered different things so I was able to taste most of the offerings. The food is excellent to just OK, but of course it is not really authentic Mexican food, it is their interpretation of it. If you love the authentic Mexican street and everyday food you get down there, well this is not that! Some of the food was cold, we had to send a couple things back as they were just too cold to eat. The carnitas were dry, they tasted reheated. Some items were very tasty. My main objection is that, while the presentation and service are very nice, the portions are microscopic and all of us left hungry and we actually walked around a bit to see the sites and then went somewhere else to eat dinner as we were all hungry. None of us are large people or big eaters. I would not go back, fun once but not again. I think my friends were embarrassed it was so slow & so little food- they expected more. Honestly I was disappointed.

    Over rated and expensive

    The Tasting menu was Very limited and fish was over cooked. No Vodkas to choose from. In order to get to the restrooms you ad to go through the kitchen; horrible for such a high priced restaurant.

    overrated and disappointing

    I am sorry to say that I have to agree with the other mediocre reviews of this restaurant. Very pretentious - food was good but the menu was so limited that there was little I wanted to eat. The wait staff consistently removed my plate before I was done eating. Noisy and crowded atmosphere. Definitely not worth the money.

    Your Menu Hurt My Eyes

    Yes someone has finally done it...create enough hype and the masses will knock down the doors. Well I finally found a restaurant in Chicago where there was not 1 thing on the menu I could eat. Th menu actually hurt my eyes or was that the dim lighting & tiny font. Yes we brought some clients to what we thought would be a fabulous dinner & my clients had to ask the Server for dinner suggestions...very confusing. Sorry to say we had to book out 8 weeks for this big disappointment!

    Overrated, disappointed

    Portions too small, flavors were there but overall the food is overrated, service not at the level of a fine dinning restaurant, we were quite dissapointed of the whole experience mostly after planning our visit for so long just to go back... with almost empty stomachs, left before finishing our food...

    Overhyped

    Waited 90 minutes to be seated and was herded in when restaurant opened. Staff were gracious. Drinks were excellent. Expected wider menu. Great artwork on the walls, but noisy & crowded. Food was warm but not hot on arrival. Server forgot to provide second forks. One entree overdone. Very flavorful, but sauces were skimpy. Overpriced & overhyped. Would have preferred to go to Cenitas.

    Atmosphere Pleasant, Portions Small

    My fiance and I went with his mother and grandparents. We all enjoyed our meals but the portions were very small. We all cleaned our plates, even two 80 year olds that have a hard time finishing anything! I requested a vegan option and the waitress had a little bit of attitude about altering the menu. She gave me two salad options and a vegan enchilada, which I chose. The atmosphere was pleasant, however the hard of hearing grandparents had trouble hearing us with all of the background noise. I was also sitting in a position where a lot of traffic was grazing my back. The final bill was quite high. The highlight of the dinner for all of us were the drinks. The Mexican Mojitos were delicious.
