When in Dallas

This restaurant is a must! Javier rocks as does his restaurant and food. Super ambience and truly a Tex Mex menu done right.

Went for dinner on Saturday night - reservations. Led through the NOISY and crowded restaurant to a table next to the bar. (Got noisier my friends) Conversation consisted of a few shouted phrases over the table....otherwise, just in a hurry to get out of here. Food was rather high in price and not sure what I ate. Some sort of... More

We cannot fault this great restaurant which has amazing food and excellent service. It is in a class of its own and we recommend anyone reading this, who likes Mexican food, to book a dinner table here and you will be thrilled. Also, the Cigar Bar is a highly refined and comfortable place to relax and unwind.

Went here on a recommendation from a friend who lives in the D. Busy place with suits after work. Not your typical Mexican restaurant. This is a mid to upscale restaurant with Mexican style flare. You will not find "authentic" good. Quail, ox tail soup, steaks, etc. black bean soup was decent. Chips n salsa were both average. Salsa is... More

This place is not only HUGE but the atmosphere is fantastic. As you make your way through the different rooms, you'll find private rooms here and there and a few different bars. We loved the setup. There were about 14 of us at a table at Javiers and everybody ordered something different. Everything we ordered was delicious, from the ceviche... More

Great food and service. We had a large group in one of the private rooms and all I heard from those in our party was how great everything was. The Mexican Mule was very good (a tasty version of the Moscow Mule with tequila instead of vodka) in addition to their many varieties of margaritas, most of which are on... More

One of the best place to grab a drink and quick meal! The wow factor was their sampler plates with the grilled quail. Done exactly right. My group of friends and I had the Don Julio 1942 shots with the clamato/cilantro house chaser. Granted it was $25 dollars a shot, but it was well worth the good times! With a... More

We had diner with friends and it was a wonderful surprise. While the restaurant serves Latin food, the variety is excellent. Their salsa and chips are amazing. Food and service were excellent. I highly recommend it.
