Spago has opened.  Two friends were there for lunch yesterday.  They said the place was packed lunchtime.  Everything is made to order so there was a substantial wait time to get served.
They both agreed they were happy with their meal except the vegan ordered manicotti with cheese and spinach and was served ham in it as well.  She sent it back.  Her friend finished her lunch before the returned meal was replaced with the original order.
When they asked for the check.  There was none.  The manager explained since they planned to eat together and couldn't due to the order error they comped them both.
They felt the menu was interesting and the prices reasonable.
There is a very nice breakfast menu.
They didn't see a menu for dinner.

It's good to hear that the lunches are well prepared and the prices are reasonable. Too bad they didn't get the order right, but the manager did the wise thing by comping you.
On TOB, there was a breakfast review saying it was the worst Eggs Benedict he'd ever had.
I think I'll try it for lunch !
Better yet, I'll wait till someone else tries it and reports.pirat

Steve and I had breakfast today. He had the eggs benedict and said they were good. Their 75 peso breakfast (eggs, bacon/sausage/ham, papas, bread, and fruit) will fill you up. And Pancho from the old Salvadore's was there as well.

I hate being so nit-picky, but ...

Vegans don't eat cheese. The friend may have been a vegetarian?

I went there for lunch yesterday, ordered rigatoni bolognese. I had the same problem, packaged pasta with a flavorless bolognese sauce. Lots of meat, but bland, bland, bland! The service at lunchtime was a joke. All the servers either standing around trying to figure out what they're supposed to be doing, or running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Very disappointing!

I tend to avoid new restaurants for the first few weeks and discount any reviews within that time period. They all have a break in period for the chefs and wait staff. If it is still not good after a month or so then it is probably destined to fail....imo.

Spago is now Spago Ajijic.  A sign saying Ajijic now hangs under the Spago sign.

Actually, they changed it to "Spago's Ajijic" with an 's'. They made that change before they opened for business.
