We dined there Saturday night with friends who love to try new places. They had seen this one in 5280 and thought it sounded good. From reviews of others about the wait time, se decided to dine early. We called at 6pm (on a Saturday) and were told we needed to get there within 20 minutes because after that the computer deletes you name… We got there (10 -15 minutes later), approached the hostess desk and were sat immediately. Our waiter – Ben was great. He walked us thru the margarita menu, patiently described all the food currently waiting in the open kitchen, and gave his suggestions on dinner. We went with the table side guac and were happy with the results. Chips were replenished in a timely manner! The menu was short but lots of delicious items to choose from. Hubby went with the smoked pork and shrimp albondigas asada – he was very pleased! I got a taste and thought it was very good as well. I and my friend’s husband went with the pan roasted cobia – wow! Such different flavors and so moist! My friend went with the tequila glazed char and she really enjoyed that. For desert we chose the mud cake and a caraf of decaf French press coffee! Mmmmmm! We had a great time, really enjoyed the food and drinks and our waiter was great.

The "quality" tequila was a little too much for me, i think next time i’ll try the house margarita! Or maybe the monday $2 chicken tacos…

If you live in Denver -give it a try!
