    On the menu, you'll find snacks, shareable small plates, raw fish dishes, tacos, a shellfish stew, and a 21-day dry-aged sirloin steak. Small dishes and tacos make up the majority of the menu.

    This trendy Mexican hotspot is the EMM Group's latest addition to their restaurant empire. Tacos are a bit on the small side, but pack a ton of flavor. Come here mainly for the scene.

    Elevated Mexican small plates from chocolate tres leches with tequila ganache to cult-loved king crab tacos make for dishes as pretty as the people that dine there.

    Small plates but satisfying! Guac was okay. Try the Mexico City Street Carrots. Doesn't sound like something you'd want to order in a restaurant but very good. Tacos are real delish and flavorful.

    Cool crowd (for the next few weeks at least), nice space, decent but overpriced food, watery drinks. Oh, and whoever decided that guacamole needed to be made fancier by pomegranate seeds was misguided

    Tuna tacos are the best!!! But octopus is too dry and fried. All the meals are spicy.

    Guac and cheese fondue are awesome starters... Apple tacquitos are a great finish

    The only AMAZING item was the roasted corn. Nothing else was special at all. Get the smores for dessert!

    Food was great but the portions were pretty tiny for the price. Quality over quantity, it seems. Would definitely go again.

    I would strongly discourage people from coming here. Hostess and personnel were extremely rude and food is overpriced. I enjoyed their guacamole but not the overall experience.

    Really good but definitely a little too pricey for what it is. Empellon Cocina is better.

    Really disappointed. :( Get the s'mores for dessert and the tuna tartare. Everything else was bland and not flavorful. Overpriced for portion size in comparison to competitors. Go to Dos Caminos.

    It's not the portion size that is an issue (it does say small plates) it's the taste and quality of the food that is lacking. Our service was great our food was not.

    Shitty service + overpriced, ok food = not coming here again. If you want trendy Mexican, go to Dos Caminos.
