    Absolutely fantastic meal. The enchiladas were the best I’ve ever had. Really flavorful. And the churros were light and flaky with perfectly creamy vanilla ice cream.

    The patio where we sat was lovely-very tropical and cool on a very warm afternoon. Food was tasty, yet nothing unique for the very elevated pricing. Bar area was eye-catching and I would imagine a draw for many. I would recommend to a friend with a warning about the prices.

    What amazing, authentic Mexican food! We were blown away by the Mole sauce, which was rich and peppery. The carnitas were to die for. The margaritas were really delicious and just the right strength. This was probably the best restaurant I have taken my family to in quite some time.

    Great ambience, food is always mediocre and overpriced for what it is, service is always just okay, check in hostess is never friendly, bathrooms were dirty, tables were dirty. I love Javiers for the ambience but every time I go - I ask myself why I am going here to have mediocre service and mediocre food only to have a great ambience. I would love if their menu changed and the food got better and they actually had staff that makes you feel welcomed.

    We usually love Javiers! The service is usually amazing, not this time. Our waters weren’t refilled had to ask for more chips. We were a table of 5 for lunch, had a odd dark booth where no one else was seated. It was lunch, not a dreamy date! Hosted obviously profiled us because I brought 4 lovely teenagers. They were in dresses and extremely well mannered. She wanted to sit us out of sight!!! Not the top notch service I’m used too. I also tip over well over 20% every time I dine and tip that this visit. Not deserved!!

    Excellent service. Pretty spendy. Above average noise - it’s probably 50% bar, 50% restaurant. If you want a nice quiet dinner not the place. Typical Mexican cuisine- nothing special. The place is spectacular if you are looking to impress someone.

    Always amazing food and drinks whenever I go here. Only issue is sometimes waiters are gone for a little bit when needing something, and when checking in for reservation, they make you wait until everybody has arrived before seating you.

    Beautiful restaurant and exceptional service with the most attentive staff. Food was good, and excellent tequila selections. The only negative is that they have bathroom attendants, which is always so awkward and uncomfortable.

    Came here to celebrate a birthday and they never bothered to say anything - no happy birthday nothing even though it was confirmed with the hostess. Food was burned/ service was awful- how can you burn and $85.00 steak? Showed server and they could care less. Called mamager and they could care less . Took 2 hours to eat. Other entree over sauced. This place is way over priced for what you get with pomp as and arrogant staff and management . Go elsewhere and be treated with dignity and respect. We even phoned the restaurant to speak about the issue and there was zero acknowledgement. We won’t ever return with the better choices that exist.

    There was a very large and very load party seated next to us. The wait staff seemed occupied with them so we experienced a few delays in service. The large group also had a screaming baby which needless to say made our dining experience much less relaxing
