I went to Epazote this weekend and understood their menu had changed - but the menu was severely over priced. The crab cake appetizer (for $18) was 2 miniscule - walnut sized cakes with just a fork full of arugula. The ahi Tuna was priced at $42!! - so I went for the scallop special $35 - and they were 3 cold chewy overcooked scallops. The atomosphere - although elegant - was full of tourists (in ripped t-shirts and tank tops) and kids watching movies/videos at the table and our service was lack luster. If I wanted to pay throught the nose - I would have made a reservation at Pacifica where prices are in line with the high end level of food and service. I unfortunately will not be going back to my old stand by - which was a great meeting spot for several years. :-( too bad.

Young professionals and locals alike pack Epazotes on weekdays after work where its almost always standing room only around the bar unless youve made dinner reservations. The happy hour specials are quite good and the bar is quite large (plenty of standing around room). The food is Southwestern but is tasty and very modern with decent servings. Epazotes is located on top of a quaint shopping complex and offers a great view of the Pacific Ocean to the west.

PROS: The place to be after work.
CONS: Not good if you don't like crowds.

My coworkers and I came here for Friday happy hour. We had calamari, crab cakes, chile relleno, three types of tamales, and a huge pitcher of pineapple margarita. Everything was delicious! The atmosphere is energetic and fun with festive music playing from speakers or live from the courtyard nearby. The service is also great, and the sunset ocean view from right outside is absolutely beautiful.
