Cool restaurant with yummy menu choices. I ordered tacos and was talked into ordering a few options to sample the local mussel type thing. Can't think of the name. Barbacoa was good, tinga chicken was also ok, but my favorite was the seafood. Salsa was...More

Jefe is funky but comfortable. Love the urban decor, love sitting by the fire. Menu is all good, margaritas are excellent!

Food was just ok, highly priced. Didn't really see a single burrito on the menu. Tried it, won't be back.

I've been here a few times for lunch. Love the outdoor seating - interior atmosphere is good too. Parking is TOUGH during busy times though! Service is sometimes good sometimes not ideal.

The food at this chic mexican restaurant is wonderful. Happy hours plates are diverse and flavorful. House made Chips and salsa also devine. The decor is spot on as well. However, I must say, the service is, er, relaxed. That is, if you have alot...More

My husband and I have dined at Jefe several times and while we'd like to say it's good, it's honestly lackluster on the food front. My reason for rating it 'average', as opposed to 'poor' is, the atmosphere is nice and clean. But honestly, it...More
