Javier's offers upscale Mexican food with fantastic cocktails and decor. Lots of candles & flames. It has become our 1st dinner visit when arriving at the Marriott Newport Coast Villas. My last visit I had an outstanding margarita with steak fajitas. When our 2nd round of margaritas were not as good as the 1st, the manager fixed it immediately. Great... More

Very nice restarting- beautiful setup , excellent bar. My wife had one of the best margaritas we have ever had. Alongside a shrimp dish with the most elegant sauce. The mole poblano was nothing special. -Blogger AM21

While staying in Newport Beach, we made reservations at Javier's for 6:30 on. Monday evening. We arrived 30 minutes early and they graciously seated us immediately. We started off with their chips and salsa (spicely delicious) and ordered two Margaritas. They were excellent. I had scallops with black beans and rice. My wife had the more traditional taco and enchilada.... More

Javier's has a great location, great decor and good food, but is a little too much of a meat market. I liked the old Javier's in Laguna. The old Javier's was not a meat market but just a good Mexican Restaurant with great staff and normal people.

I've eaten at Javier's at the Newport Coast and Irvine Spectrum locations too many times to remember. While some of the house specials such as the Shrimp Mojo de Ajo, Shrimp Rancheros, Chile Colorado and Carnitas are delicious, the traditional plates such as tacos and enchiladas are just average. I've never had a taco at either location that didn't have... More

I have been here a few times and each time I ordered the same meal, Carnitas. It is delicious. The fruit flavored Margaritas are delicious (a little overpriced in my opinion but this is Newport so that is to be expected). I love the view, I love the vibe, I love the décor!! It is a very unique restaurant with... More

Okay let me start by saying my first taste of Javier's was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I was soooooo friggin happy with the yummy food. So when the word on the street told me there was a location in Newport I was soooo determined to get there. It was close enough to my birthday that I could pull the... More

Great appetizers and great location. In place for cocktails with high energy later in the evening. Personally "manned" restrooms asking for tips is annoying.
