“Amazing A++++++++++++++++++”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had a wonerful dinner and experience at Mexique, food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Atmoshphere was nice and quite and the restaurant was clean. Don't judge the restaurant from the outside, when we drove past it in kinda looked like a dive, but when I got inside my first impressions changed drastically.

“Rediscoving Mexique”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I went to Mexique twice this week. Once for a business lunch and, because it was so incredibly delicious, again for dinner with my husband last night. Lunch was quiet, very affordable, shrimp cooked to moist perfection. Dinner was lively and dynamic. The place was buzzing, every table full, we ate at the bar. I had the skate wing with grapes, potatoes, etc. Don't miss it. Every bite was a surprise. Again, perfect seafood cook-timing.

Awesome creativity. Chef owner is passionate. Easy to reach from downtown. If you like Mexican food and are looking for the higher end treatment, this is it.

“Flavorful and a Unique Experience”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

This was my first visit to Mexique, and I will definitely go back. The unique flavors that have been combined to create the dishes are a definite plus. While they have a small menu, the flavor profiles created in the Conchinita Pibil were excellent. It is a small place, and the brunch menu looks like a great different option to the typical Sunday morning experience.

“Delicious !”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

An interesting fusion of flavors and techniques- Mexican and French. It all works. The lamb entree was fabulous. Can't wait to go back & try some other dishes. The service was good as well.
