Most amazing Mexican cuisine ever. Rick Bayless is masterful with spices and his combination of flavors. Service and space are complimentary to best meal imaginable. Dined here for lunch and wanted to return for dinner! Very best house margarita and heavenly guacamole. Tostadas were perfection and serving sizes are just-right to enjoy but not over-do. Never seem to order dessert at Mexican restaurants but the Sopa de Frutas is phenomenal and not too heavy. Cannot wait to return!

We came here based on our love for Frontera Grill and were not disappointed. Having a story to tell about each course kept our minds engaged not just our palates. The unique exquisite flavors were simply unbelievable. The many moles were so rich and complex. If you don't have 2-3 hours or don't want to spend the extra money, stick with Frontera. If you have the money and time though, this is really recommended fine dining cuisine.

We had Saturday evening reservations and after our less than stellar lunch at Frontera; were a little apprehensive. There was no need. It is a lovely room; although I still think a bit loud, service was incredible, and the food was imaginative and delicious. We chose the Art menu with wine pairing. All of the dishes were a flavorful mixture for your taste buds and the wine pairing could not have been better. I am glad that we went.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had!!! Fabulous service. Pick a themed menu and enjoy the incredible food. Beautiful restaurant, incredible tastes, great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed "The Art" with wine pairing and highly recommend it. Though the awning says "Topolo", you enter through Frontera which is crowded, enticing and loud. But then you are whisked into a side room which is "Topo". Topo is quiet and romantic and has three menu options. We opted for "The Art" which is a seven course tasting menu and we also got the wine pairing. The presentation excited all the senses; the tastes and flavors were amazing. Each course comes with a sip of a perfect wine pairing which is described in detail by a sommelier and compliments the course to perfection. Rick changes his menu every few months but my impression is that you didn't feel like you were eating "Mexican" cuisine, you felt like you were eating amazing cuisine!
