We arrived at 5:30 pm and still couldn't get in until after 8pm so we sat at the bar. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. Margaritas were great!

One of two of my favorite locations to frequent for dinner in Dallas. Always great for a large dinner group. Food is fantastic. Margarita options and excellent wine choices plus best gourmet mexican dishes.

I was in Dallas for 5 nights and chose to eat here 2 nights. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. I highly recommend the beef nachos, Filete Cantinflas, Red Snapper Mojo De Ajo and the Cajeta Crêpes for dessert.

Can I give 10 stars?? Yes it's pricey. But having lived in west Texas and south Texas I can vouch that this is Mexican at its best. Everything so fresh. Great cocktails; best margaritas outside of Mexico City. My wife had snapper. I ate a ceviche appetizer ( perfect) and chicken with mole sauce. In my opinion, mole is not... More

Every time we visit Dallas we enjoy Javier's with our friends. Last night was not a good experience. Had to ask to be reseated. We were literally hanging into the aisle and had a view of the open kitchen door and trash bins. We ordered appetizers and cocktails. Ceviche was excellent. Steak nachos were good. But our entrees came before... More

Chef prices, and El Chico or Chili's is better. It lacks passion. Romatic. Tons of servers. Fast food times. Packed. Food is poor.

This restaurant has a 5 star rating from Dallas foodies, and I admit the food was great. The scene was very interesting and tables upon tables of business men and groups celebrating. The entrance lounge was lovely, quiet, and genteel. The bar area seemed lively. However, our round table for 5 was so very noisy that we could not have... More

This was a nice experience. Dim inside. Interestingly decorated. I would say "old world Mexico." Good service. Knowledgeable about gluten free options - although not mentioned in the menu, most things are gluten free.

Thank lauragatz
