Some of the best Mexican food I’ve ever tried. I had the 3 enchilada dinner. One lobster, crab and shrimp enchilada. It was nothing short of amazing. Will eat here again.

The noise level was so loud we were unable to talk to our friends who we were having dinner with. We couldn’t wait to finish our meal and leave. I’ve had better Mexican food for a lot less money. We will not need to “experience” Javier’s on our next trip to Las Vegas.

This is my third time visiting Javier’s and I always have a great experience. I stick with enchiladas Pueblo and the ceviche ahi. Always leaving great flavor on my tastebuds.

Javier's is a beautiful space, but the food wasn't great and it was very loud and very dark. My parents had to use the flashlight on their phones to read the menu, and it was so loud my dad had a hard time participating in the conversation, since he has hearing aids. I was told by friends that this place had great food and great margaritas, and maybe I just hit it on an off night, but the margaritas were heavy and salty, and one of my scallops was so gross I could barely choke it down without gagging. It was like salt water brine exploded in my mouth when I bit into it. Only one of four scallops was like that, but I was too scared to eat any more of them. My mom got the trio enchiladas. Two were "pretty good" but one was not good at all. The dungeness crab one. I really wanted to like this place, but I don't think I'll be back.

First of all you could not see anything you couldn’t read the menu, and the waiters had to turn the flashlight on to see what food they were serving. The noise level was so high you could not even talk to the person sitting across the table. Also the food was served warm and not completely cooked. The kitchen needs to take a little bit more time and make sure the food is completely cooked.

I was able to make dinner reservations at 11:30. When I got there they let me know that the kitchen is closing then rushed me to order. Server was rude. Food was just okay compared to what else Vegas has to offer. They shouldn’t have reservations for times they can’t accommodate… I won’t be returning

Really good Mexican food. Very loud/energetic venue that made conversation difficult within the party. Just like all other restaurants in Vegas hotels, cost was high. Enjoyed the décor of the restaurant.

Very good food and a fairly deep menu for a Mexican place. They have the basics but also the opportunity to get fancier.

Only drawback were our margaritas which were poorly made (so much lime juice as to make them undrinkable). Waiter didn’t notice we didn’t drink them. A good waiter would have and asked.

It was my birthday and although I stated this on two different places of the reservation, I wasn’t even wished a happy birthday, nothing. Another opportunity for improvement is improving communication between the hostess and waiter. The hostess took us to our booth and didn’t hand us a drink nor food menu. The waiter came over to take our drink order but we weren’t prepared due to not having menus so he had to go get them. Just time wasted and it felt awkward. The mango, Tajin margarita was delicious though!

Every time we dine here it is always incredible. Even with some areas of Vegas not having staffing, Javier’s was impeccable in every way, right down to the restaurant being spotless. I recommend everyone who is going to Vegas to try this restaurant. I wish it allowed more than 5 stars.

I had a reservation and made a request for a table where I’d be able to talk with clients I was bringing in. I was sat in an extremely over crowded bar. I’m sorry - but a reservation should not be sat in the bar unless they agree to it. It was impossible to talk. Very disappointed.

Nothing special. Very crowded. Had to wait 15 minutes when we had a reservation. Service was very slow. Took 20 minutes to get drinks. We had eaten appetizers and three baskets of chips before the drinks came. Entrees were average.

Food was average for the price. I don’t mind spending a lot of money if the food was good. For the meal we got I should have paid half price. Taquitos we’re good. Guacamole and enchiladas were tasteless.

We have dined here before and always been great. However this time as a little disappointed in the service we got sitting at the bar and one of our dishes came out wrong. Ordered steak with the sauce on side with mexican rice and mashed potatoes. Steak was great, got white rice, no sauce and the mashed potatoes were just very bland.

The bartender who took our drink order, during our dining time would attend to both parties to either side of us and never even acknowledged us.

The food was amazing, our waiter was very attentive to our needs. But it is on the pricier side so be prepare to spend some money here. But in my opinion it’s worth it!
