  1. My wife and I tried Caliza last night. It was disappointing. A very soft opening to be sure. We were told that the actual opening will be in February, but they sure have many kinks to work out. The service was wishful thinking with a couple of knowing the menu to most just following the others and chuckling at the plate names. Four entres seemed overpriced and not tried after tasting three of the five appetizers which were meager, spicey and pricey. No chips with salsa here and when asked, they bought a burnt tortilla on a plate halfway into the meal after asking again. Their basic Margarita was good, but again meager and at $19 gone in three sips. The ambiance was very nice but noticeably not family friendly. No kids menu and nowhere to put carriages will undoubtedly hurt business in this family neighborhood. I don’t see the need to return here with Fonda available on Duane St. Mexican cuisine is still best there. It would have been better to have a nice diner here since who can go to GeeWhiz anymore.
