I came here as an East Bay resident who doesn't spend enough time in the city finding these great hole in the wall places. Luckily for me, I was on a second date with an SF resident who had been here before and knew how funky and great it was. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved the small cozy feeling of the space. The tables are definitely in close quarters with each other and the wait staff aren't overly attentive, but everyone is very friendly and the food is delicious. I had the baked salmon and it was cooked perfectly with a very tasty sauce and mashed potatoes. I stuck with water, but my date had a margarita and noted they were a bit strong (I'll leave that to you to decide if that is good or bad). She also enjoyed her chicken kabobs and cous cous. There was a large group there, but based on the size of the place, I would imagine you need to make some sort of reservation to be able to accommodate more than a few people. Prices seemed pretty reasonable. I don't have any real complaints except maybe that the staff could have checked in a bit more to refill waters etc, but all in all, I'd recommend this place. We did not stay for dancing/late night.

This is a former movie palace turned salsa club. It's the biggest salsa club I've ever been to. And they go all out. You'll find what you usually find in a typical salsa club, only more so. Because it's big, it can be intimidating for dancers who are not advanced. LA Style rules and reigns here. If you're not up to snuff, you get an uncomfortable vibe from most of your dance partners. The best dancers come here, so why should the others put up with someone who's not at that level? You get that just about everywhere, but not to this extent. If you *are* at an advanced level, however, this is probably the best place on earth. They are regionally famous for their dance competitions. If you place high in one of these, then you're *good*. I'd give it 3 stars, but it gets an extra star because it does strive to be the ultimate salsa club. And it comes awfully close. It's fun to watch, and if you're a good dancer, even more fun to be out on the floor.
