the atmosphere was great! the service was good and the food was good, but not as delicious as I thought it would be, having read about the chef and having also eaten at Mamajuana's. Not sure I would go back. I like MamaJuana's much more!

Nice atmosphere and specialized waiter attention

Place needs more energy and vibe. There were only 2 tables with people and we were one of them.
