The restaurant decor was pleasant and fitting with the theme of the cuisine, done in warm copper, blues, reds, and yellows.
Meal price came to roughly $64 including drinks, taxes and tip. I thought this was very reasonable. The head bartender is very friendly and very knowledgable about the latest and greatest spirits. He actually comped us on my wife's margarita, charging for a well liquor when he had given us one of the best tequilas in the house!
Our waiter was also very nice, as was the rest of the staff.

I’d also like to say that the wait staff was very helpful and chatty. My only complaint was that they did not have three dishes that were on their menu, which to begin with, was not overly extensive. Of course, it was my luck that my top two choices for my entrée were unavailable, so I settled on the blue crab and cod cakes and my sister took the blue corn-crusted snapper. We also took our waiter’s suggestion to try the shrimp and roasted corn tamale appetizer. The bread basket included three types of bread: yellow and blue corn muffins; cranberry bread; and a plain, crusty French bread. The first two were very unique and tasty. Our appetizer was delicious; a just-right blend of spice to go with the sweat corn tamale. My crab cakes were okay; I’ve had better, as these didn’t have much flavor. This could have been due to the fact that I substituted the red cabbage slaw for regular greens (I don’t really like coleslaw-type foods). My sister’s fish was a much better choice; we both really liked it. I think that the blue corn crust really kept the fish moist and flavorful.
We weren’t going to get dessert since we were stuffed (must have been all the bread), but I wanted to look at the menu anyway. The waiter suggested the coffee and vanilla bean flan, and we couldn’t help ourselves. He was right - it was unlike any flan we had had before. The flavor was subtle but very creamy. It was more like the inside of a crème brulee than a flan. I would highly recommend this for dessert; I’d visit again for it alone.
Just as a side note, we heard two of the tables near us comment favorably on the soup (I think it was roasted squash or pumpkin) and another table was quite taken with the steak.
