We went here on a business trip to Dallas. It was highly recommended at the Hilton in Park Cities. We were seated right away. The restaurant was rather dark but culturally appropriate. We were seated next to the bar, I am not sure why as we did not drink! Guess they thought we would plow it... read more

Wife and I decided to eat here again. We had previously eaten here for a birthday party and really liked it. We couldn't get a reservation so we came early at 6:00 on a Saturday and were able to get a table. The service here is incredible-fast and efficient and friendly. The food was good, but far from great. I... More

I will preface this with, I love my Tex Mex, but I knew they only had authentic Mexican before going here and I put my big girl panties on and decided I was going to find something to eat. We went on Valentine's Day and we did not have reservations and got seated within 30 minutes, so that I can... More

I couldn't believe how busy a place could be on a Wednesday in January. The staff was great and very attentive. We sat outside which I really enjoyed. The food was good and so were the margaritas. I had the beef fajitas enjoyed them. The cheese starter they make at your table was also yummy. I'd happily go back.

Wow... this restaurant is excellent. The food and atmosphere are spectacular. Gourmet Mexican food at its finest and the steak is delicious. Upscale restaurant, attentive service.

This place does its menu offerings in the way that Mexican and Tex-Mex should be done. During a recent visit, Javier's again exceeded our expectations. The menu has a number of traditional Mexican dishes with a few Tex-Mex style as well. All of the food is prepared to perfection, and the cocktails are handmade and the quality is obvious. Javier's...

My husband and I first met just two weeks before discovering Javier's together, so it has a special place in our hearts. Javier's has beautiful ambience (it bustles with happy-looking people in a candle-lit setting), excellent service and delicious food and drinks. Most of the servers have been there for years and have old-time class-gentlemen. They are what make the... More

We have been to a lot of nice restaurants in dallas and Fort Worth and this one just couldn't compete. We went Friday night and it was PACKED. So loud we couldn't even have a conversation. Once we got seated in a noisy corner 20 mins after our reservation, we were attended to in a timely manner but I think... More

We had dinner at Javier's. From the Cigar Bar/Lounge to the Restaurant, the atmosphere and service is excellent. The food is not Tex Mex or even what Americans consider Mexican food. It is gourmet Mexican food. It is a little pricey but worth every dime. I recommend it highly.
