Some interesting takes in some dishes (in a good way!). Good use of spices. My wife had the chicken mole and the sauce was great but the meat seemed like it was not freshly cooked.

The food was outstanding as were the craft cocktails. Our waiter was funny and really attentive. This is a great place for dinner before a show or bar hopping in Oakland.

We reserved a 10 person bench table outside for a friend’s birthday - it was nice and quieter out there and enclosed with heat-lamps so quite cozy. Started to get a smidge cold at the end of the night closer to the wall so bring a coat just in case! Food and service were solid - we started the night with pitchers of margaritas and chips and guac. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and dinner. It’s a bit pricey but high quality food and excellent taste and presentation. All in all, we had a good time and I’d highly recommend this place for a group gathering or more fun bromate dining experience.

We were looking for somewhere new to go in Oakland before a show. If you're looking a hipper more gourmet Mexican restaurant, this is it. Not that I don't love taquerias and traditional, but it's not like a Chevy's or major chain where everything is smothered in cheese.

The tortillas that came with the ceviche were awesome as well. I could have eaten way more. Get the spicy margarita too if you're tired of sweet ones.

A great place for New Mexican. Great food, very attentive service, we were literally screaming at our friends across the table, it was so loud. Food was on high end of $$, in terms of pricing I thought it was expensive relative to what you get. Definitely quality food, but I found myself wanting more of something relative to the price.

Food was dry. Waitress never checked in with us after our food was served. We never saw her again. We ended up having to put cash on the table and left.

Decent food. Really good service and drink options. Kinda pricy considering what you get. We had a good time, though would probably opt for another Mexican restaurant that has similar pricing but better value.

Decorations inside the restaurant were great, ambiance was nice. Waitress sat, got order, and fed table next to us even though we had been there 40 minutes already. Still got charged for drinks we returned and did not like. Called manager over and had him take them off. Most likely would not come back.

So I have been here a few times and it never really seems to fulfill my expectations! Its primarily around the food being pretty average for up market Mexican (not rich or tasty), and the ambiance is loud with a few of the doors always open so it never feels cosy! We had a birthday here for a 46 year old 10 people and of course we over ordered, but we did expect our waiter to mentioned that we probably ordered twice as much as we needed. I bit of guidance would have been nice. The one thing that always hits is the Mexican Donuts for dessert.

Likely won't eat here again.

I have really enjoyed this place since day one. Chris outdid himself and the menu is fresh. Had an event close by and got a reservation last minute for in the porch. It was freezing that evening and after a bit of a wait we got a table under the heater due to the attention of one of the hosts. He took massively good care of us. Kudos!!!!
Hen of the Woods mushrooms deep fried with a mole that was sublime, mescal margarita so good as Posole warmed me up, sis of roasted cauliflower with hazelnuts was generous and I took home 1/2 my Posole and cauliflower because the mushrooms were so rich and filling. A bit loud for my ears but it was doable with a foodie friend who loves energy.

Their food is more like the best restaurants in Mexico City than like most Mexican restaurants here. No burritos. But plenty of fresh fish and delicious pork dishes. Outstanding mole. We keep coming back.

Service great although everything came super fast. Like a few minutes after the guacamole was out down, the entrees came. The food was ok. Pork was dry and the chicken in mole was tough although the mole flavor was good. Desserts were the best. Strangely enough the coffee was not good at all - very bitter.

Short ribs fantastic. Roasted califlower great. Chicken mole, not so good. Donnachurro dessert fantastic.
Coffee not as good as a week ago. Server unattentive, unlike great server the week before. Shrimp ceviche
needs to be scrapped, start over with a tradional recipe. Noise level makes conversation difficult. Hire Brown Sugar Kithcen's sound consultant. Basic margerita, fantastic. Decour great. We will certainly go back and keep working our way through the Menu.

I was looking to take advantage of Oakland Restaurant week and what a find this was. The food was delicious, the portions were very generous and the drink menu was awesome.

We had a great server and I would absolutely return, even when it's not restaurant week.

I need to give a special shout out to the flautas and incredible churro for dessert. Yum!

We went during Restaurant Week so had a limited menu that was a good deal. The cochinita pibil was good but some pieces were a bit dry. Tortillas are rustic and flavorful; I think they’re made of nixtamal corn. Really good salad with beets and somewhat heavy but decadent churros. I was excited to try Mexican wines and they were served way too cold, so that was a little disappointing. It’s very loud. A pretty space, however.

Great food with innovative flavors. The restaurant week menu hasn't changed much, but the food is great. The meat was flavorful and aromatic. All dishes are plated beautifully( for those who eat with your eyes) and they taste good too. The spicy cocktail was actually spicy! Yum.

Good service, reasonable noise level and in general makes me very excited for my upcoming trip to Mexico!

Delicious salt air margaritas! They taste fresh, not too sweet and the salty cloud on top is the perfect balance! The ahi ceviche and melted cheese with peppers is a complete meal. My favorite when in downtown Oakland 🥰

Reservation yesterday for 9 people on Saturday 1/11/20 at 8 pm. We chose this place for 2 special reasons - my nephew's birthday, and a mini family reunion.

Half our party got there early @ 7:30 pm. Hostess stand said table not available yet - totally expected, no problem.

The rest us got there right @ 8 pm. Hostess generally pretty cold and unwelcoming. Told us the table ahead was finishing up dessert, no idea of ETA.

At 8:15 I checked in again - some of us had been waiting 45 minutes now. There have been 3 tables very close right next to each other sitting empty for the past 20 minutes. I finally asked if we could quickly push those together. Finally seated.

Another 10 minutes before anyone came by to take even drink orders. Waiter intro was rushed but friendly. Unfortunately the rest of the night continued mostly lukewarm. Only a few moments where we felt like we were getting service.

Check almost $400, our waiter Saulo finally stops at exactly that moment to ask how everything was - but in the same breath he says there was a machine error, so the usual "group gratuity" charge wasn't included. Repeated that again just in case I somehow didn't hear it the first time. Left a really bad taste in our mouths.

Would have been nice to have been made to feel like we were appreciated customers BEFORE it was time to open our wallets.
