Their winter menu of Mexican specialties includes three different kinds of fresh guacamole, an assortment of tacos, several quesadillas and a handful of new, seasonal additions.

There are also margaritas to help the conversation flow more smoothly.

For the most romantic setting, reserve a spot in their Greenhouse Dining Room, where the lighting is low at night and tables are illuminated by flickering candles. There are also fresh herbs growing throughout the room to add to the aroma and ambiance.
