Indoor and outdoor seating, fine wine and good Italian eats! Worth a try on a beautiful, sunny day! Put in a reservation to be sure to get a table and avoid showing up just to wait, unless you don’t mind! A little out of the way but a beautiful must to get dressed up for!

Patio seating/ outdoor. Nice to try. Many people like this place. Last I was there, it was very busy, so it took a while to get our food. Worth the try at least once if you have the extra time and are in the specific area.

Tacos are good, environment is unique and hip. Music inside is loud so don’t plan to have meaningful conversation. Service is generally good. I recommend snagging seats at the bar, first come first serve for two or less people. It is a busy happening place. Otherwise, call way ahead to reserve seating at an actual table. Their spin on fish tacos are good as well as the chicken. El Pastor is also good if I remember correctly. Very dark inside so you won’t get good pictures without being the person with the flash on... but a must try spot for some food in the city night life. Parking garage is down the street.
