They didn't take note of our online request for an outdoor table and we had to wait for one to be available and move tables. Food was ok. Cocktails were nice but super strong.

waitresses need to be more observant to their tables

Delicious food and some extremely friendly staff. Took a long time to decide what to have because it all sounded amazing!

Great restaurant

Booked for my birthday, no mention. Called to update booking 35hrs in advance, also emailed changes- nothing documented or known by staff- told lucky it wasn't busy. Service slow, had to get own drinks, and also had to constantly have hands up for service. Friendly staff, but quite expensive for what we got.

Specifically asked to be seated as far from the smoking pit as possible when booking , the table we were given was the closest to the pit which was great for the asthmatics at the table. Service was subpar this time, we had to chase someone down to order food.

Although they were short staffed we found the service to be quite good. Definitely friendly! Food was lovely; fresh, light and tasty. We ordered dishes to share and it was great. Had to go back for more chicken wings!

food was not tasty. Mexican restaurant but did not have fajitas. burrito and nachos were very poor and did not have good flavor or good texture. had to continually put empty glasses on nearby table to avoid having table full of empty glasses even though wait staff had been to table several times with glasses stacked up ready to pick up. Staff had positive attitude and were friendly.
