Just wanted to say that I went with my family last night and found this place to be phenomenal. The decor is great, and the food is delicious. Though the plates are small, if you'...

Editorial review from GrubHub 8/10/2013

ridiculously small portions. $20 octopus dish consisted of six 1" pieces. I single-handedly ate $60 worth of food and was still hungry more

Fabulous food, fun atmosphere! We went for Cinco de Mayo and had a blast. French toast is amazing. more

Where is the tequila in the margarita? 2/11/2011

Visited the resturant on Wed 9th February 2011 around 5:30pm, for the first time, where me and my 7 co-workers were warmly greeted and seated upstairs. This was the first time that I had visited a resturant where the appetizer portions were larger that the entrees. The food was over priced for the portions that were served. Most of us ordered marqaritas which were extremely small for $10-$12. The margaritas seemed not to contain any alcohol. Prior to going there I had been told that the "" Margaritas were second to none and that they really packed a punch."" Almost everyone in my party had two drinks. The following day at work , we were discussing the Distrito. Most agreed that the food was very tasty although portioned small and almost everyone said that they wondered what happened with the margaritas. Most agreed that we were served virgin drinks (without alcohol). We all agreed that if we went again that we would just order ""shots"" to ensure that we would get the after work buzz that we all were expecting. After all has been said and done, I would say that $374 was spent for a couple of hours of conversation and appetizing. more

Eh...I probably wouldn't go back. 1/24/2010

This place has good food if it was a lot cheaper and had bigger portions. A lot of the staff is somewhat rude, waited over an hour with a reservation, etc.. Pros: food is pretty good Cons: small portions, overpriced, bad service more

Very, Very, Good 2/7/2009

Just wanted to say that I went with my family last night and found this place to be phenomenal. The decor is great, and the food is delicious. Though the plates are small, if you've eaten that day, two to three dishes should satisfy you. So, instead of ordering all your food at once, ask your waiter if you can order in increments. I recommend starting with the Guacamole Chips, then the Chicken Enchilada, and then moving on to the Chicken Tacos. End with the Tres Leches Cake. more

Not up to par with other Garces restaurants 12/13/2008

First off, I love Jose Garces' other two restaurants (Amada and Tinto). This restaurant does not come even close to his other two. They went with a modern interior, and I understand the need to not want white table cloths, but I think they went a little over board. Instead of looking cool it looks like a chain restaurant or a Starr restaurant. Pros: Cool ambience, easy to find street parking Cons: Muddled dishes. more
