Tips

  • Hidden gem of a wine list.
  • The Cointreau margaritas are tasty
  • Wild Copper River salmon with mango tequila sauce and tequila sorbet. What more can I say?
  • Start with an array of appetizers to share. The gambas al mojo de ajo (shrimp with sweet garlic sauce) is my favorite entree, and I'm not even a shrimp person! Order it, and leave room for dessert.
  • The jumbo blue crab cake with avocado-tomatillo-habanero salsa reminds us why this spot is a longtime Chicago standout.
  • Absolutely the best Mexican restaurant in town. Ask for the sorbet even if you don't see it on the menu.
  • Amazing WINE list of all things, as well as perfect margarita pairings
  • Filet was incredible! Just the right amount of spice and heat. A little pushy with the drink menu, but one margarita is worth it.
  • Ceviche is a must. Spicy tequilla ice cream is actually spicy
  • Service industry discount Mondays and Tuesdays - 25% off entire check.
  • Excellent menu with great options for sharing. Nice tequila selection and excellent margaritas. Service was attentive and friendly.
  • Restaurant Week: if you have never been, here's your chance. Reservation's a must.
  • Great tequila selection.
  • Pescado al Carbn !!!!
  • Susan Goss, chef of West Town Tavern, eats here on her nights off. She loves the Salpicon de jaiba.
  • Presentation is gorgeous. Flavor is underwhelming. Outstanding place for drinks- both tequila flights and the house margaritas!! But you wouldn't miss the food.
  • Somm is studying for the master somm test. Watch the Somm documentary and then go chat with her about wine.
