Oyamel: chef needs to take it easy on the salt...

Visited DC last weekend and went to Oyamel for the first time. I'll give props for the beef tongue taco and cabrito taco, but everything I tried was very salty, and in some cases inedibly so---the grasshopper taco in the latter case. (And I'm no salt-phobe and can't stand underseasoned food.) I know lots of Mexican food is inherently salty (chips, cheese, etc.), but even the salsa and guac were dominated by salt. I also found the prices too high relative to portion size, and the classic margarita really average and too light on the tequila.
