The seared ahi was great...the 'street sized' tortillas were too small to accommodate folding and eating them like a taco...but DELICIOUS none the less!

The EH Margarita was weak...for such a tall glass and higher pricetag...I should at least have had a buzz going...

Tater tots for a starter - almost a meal in itself

small plates

much too noisy in there. If we'd known, we would have eaten ouside. They sat people at tables right next to us, instead of spacing them out.
