    Rude manager refused to serve our dog

    This restaurant is not dog friendly if you want to actually give your dog something to eat. I ordered my pup a side of chicken, and they refused to fulfill it if it was for my dog. Totally nonsensical. We feed our dog by hand and respect all health codes by not letting him be in contact with dishes, but they still refused. They were also incredibly rude about the situation.

    Good patio, bad food

    This patio is awesome, but the food was terrible.

    Cozy front porch patio

    The restaurant is beautiful and the festive flare flows into the large patio and cozy front porch dining area. Such a lovely place for a Sunday breakfast with fido. The service was spot on and the food even better, The manager and server were very kind and thoughtful, bringing out a fresh bowl of water for our doggie.

    Great place to bring your dog and dine out on the patio. Very friendly staff and attentive to your needs.

    Great place for dinner with fido!

    Hostess greeted us warmly. I had called ahead to make sure patio was still open & still pet-friendly.She even remembered the call. Lovely outdoor patio area for dining with your dog. There are two separate patio areas; a more secluded, couples dining and a larger, wonderfully lush seating one. We sat in the larger area. For our dog, the concrete was clean(maybe a little cold, I brought a little rug) . Staff was very accommodating when I ask for milk/half & half for Molly's dinner. As for us humans, the experience was romantic, the food tasty. Tortillas, both corn & flour, fresh and tender. Frijoles amazing. We had mole pabanollo & crab enchiladas, not a "do over" for us. Overall, a great date night when you can't leave doggie at home.
