Paxia Authentic Mexican Cuisine
Loving this place!2nd time here and just love the food! It is great! The service this second time was a little less fabulous than last time but the food and atmosphere totally made up for it. You will be doing yourself a disfavor not trying this place!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Stumbled upon it and gave it a go. It was wonderful! Authentic mexican foor and yummy yummy! Save room for desert though!! I am not a desert person but gave it a whirl, the flourless chocolate cake with a dollup of ice cream on top was to die for! Came out warm out of the oven made to order and delicous!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all thoroughly enjoyedWe all thoroughly enjoyed our entrees and the Nogada appetizer was terrific. We appreciated the new and interesting spices and chilies.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMexican food lovers, what a find!Their menu listing has appetizers, entrées and drinks that you cannot find at any other restaurant in Metro Denver. The entrée that we had ("Molcajelte") was simply outstanding (we would definitely order this again - they offer three varieties of this dish and it is served in a Mexican mortar, lava rock vessel hot out of the oven!)
Ambience was colorful, well lit and pleasant with large heavy wood tables to enjoy your meal. Their corn tortillas are fresh made and they offer them to you continuously while your dining.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI really enjoyed our dinner.I really enjoyed our dinner. The waitress ensured we had sufficient time to order. Very hospitable, gave recommendations on what food to try and drinks. The food was wonderful, tasty and purely enjoyable.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy and unique. The serviceYummy and unique. The service is friendly and kind, but relaxed. Be prepared to relax and take some time to enjoy the experience. If you are pressed for time, probably not the best place.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAn unique Mexican alternativePaxia is a standout in Denver, among so many Mexican restaurants that serve up refried beans & cheese. Read their menu online before going, and you'll get a sense of how different it is. Hand made, authentic Mexican & Central American foods with flair is what you'll find here, along with a few familiar favorites, but done Paxia-style.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA good place for authenticA good place for authentic Mexican food. Good mojitos. A step up from the usual cheese-slathered Tex-mex. Wonderful wait staff, especially Salvy.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTlacoyos, nogadas, rellenos,Tlacoyos, nogadas, rellenos, all fantastic! I loved the decor/ artwork/ seating... Hip but not too hip, comfortable. I will definitely be back, just wish I still lived nearby so I could dine here more frequently! All the staff was great too.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMReally loved it. Food wasReally loved it. Food was unique and setting was really lovely.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic authentic MexicanFantastic authentic Mexican foods! Not your typical "American" style burritos & tacos. Great salsas, margaritas, & house made tortillas. we'll definitely be back.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved it! InterestingWe loved it! Interesting menu...a bit more creative than the "usual" Mexican restaurant . Innovative drnk menu too.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMexicanos al AtaqueThis was my third time going to Paxia. I introduced a Russian friend to more authentic and gourmet Mexican food and she fell in love with the Chiles en Nogada, while I had the Tlacoyos, native to the Mexico City area which is completely different to my North Mexican home town. We also had the chips and different salsas along with Queso Fundido with Rajas and freshly made corn tortillas. For dessert, the flourless chocolate cake is decadent, although a bit small but good enough to share with one other person.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mexican RestaurantAte at Paxia for the first time and thought it was great! Excellent fresh Mexican food, which is difficult to find in Denver. So many Mexican places are SO average, wonder how they stay in business. They have great margaritas, home made chips/salsa/guac/beans/tortillas. Plus was easy to get a table and park at 7pm on Saturday night (not for long!). Thought the combination of very good Mexican food plus a non-stuffy/expensive atmosphere (like Tamayo) was great. Given the lack of any other good Mexican restaurants on the west side of Denver (lived in Berkeley and Wheat Ridge the last 20 years) and location in the next hip neighborhood of Sunnyside, this restaurant will do very, very well.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMStandout Mexican cuisineThis was our second time dining there. Food is excellent, very authentic and some unique dishes. Margaritas are fantastic, especially the mango with jalapeño. Guac is made table side to your preference. Service the first time, on a crazy busy Saturday night, was really slow and spotty. This time we dined earlier and everything was great. Since the guacamole is made table side, the wait for it depends on how busy they are. Both times it showed up just minutes before meal. Staff need to communicate this to diners to let them know. We knew what to expect, having been before, but they really should tell people. Other than that, great food, great place!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI came across Paxia aboutI came across Paxia about a year ago and have been going at least once a month sense. I have recommended and introduced several people to Paxia and they've all been very impressed. The food and service is always consistant which is what I personally love the most - I know it's going to be a great experience.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA REAL GEMI was introduced to Paxia through a group of friends via a lunch date. I was immediately impressed with the restaurant itself; clean and vibrant. Although the food and the staff was what put it over the top for me. I have been bragging about Paxia to friends and family for a while so for my brothers 45th birthday, this was my restraunt of choice. And now, it is their first choice as well.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday nights are extremelySaturday nights are extremely busy. The restaurant knew we had the table reserved but earlier tables did not turn over quickly enough. The restaurant was very gracious to us about the delay, so no hard feelings.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMREAL Mexican FoodI am a Chicago transplant, and grew up on regional Mexican cuisine prepared and sold by the families who came to Chicago and Indiana to work the steel mills.
After moving to Colorado, I have been hard pressed to find high quality Mexican cuisine that has not fallen victim to the green chili / Texan /New Mexican scourge that seems to be prevalent here in Denver. At Paxia - you don't have any "smothered" options.
Instead, we have a delightful ambiance and decor, with dishes that pay homage to regional Mexican cuisine - but are substantially updated and modern, and presented wonderfully.
Tableside guacamole preparation, desserts individually made to order. Flourless chocolate cake unmatched anywhere else!!5/13/2012 12:00:00 AM
