ATX Cocina experiments with the boundaries of Mexican cuisine. We have taken traditional Mexican dishes and elevated them with modern approaches and techniques. Corn, the basis of the Mexican cuisine for thousands of years, is also the foundation of our kitchen. We nixtamalize and process our masa in house sourcing it from heirloom varieties of corn grown by small family farms in Mexico.

    FOODIES: This restaurant is a must! Fantastic food and beverages. A gastronomic experience. The beets with burrata prepared the palate. Queso was topped with an imaginative chimichurri-like blend of flavors and served with small corn tortillas. Duck dish with mole was moist, outstanding, and filling, with enough duck to share or offer tastings. The short ribs for 2 was delicious, meat was falling off the bone. The mayo based sauce was not needed as the pickled carrots gave it a great counterpoint. Try the flan. It was enough for 3. The carajillo was good with the flan. My favorite drink was the Mi A-Mora, flavorful, thick, with a smokey goodness. Mark was our waiter, highly attentive and a cheerful attitude. Can't ask for more! I highly recommend this restaurant. Multiple drinks, dinner, and dessert for 3 adults: $325 not including tip. Well worth it. Five stars+.

    We had an amazing experience from the moment we walked in the door. Had a reservation, but got there early and had a margarita at the bar. Bar staff was charming and vibe is festive. Once we sat down at our table the great service continued. Excellent wine recommendation and our server had a mastery of the menu. Food was outstanding! Highly energized venue, even on a Wednesday night. Highly recommend.

    My Wife has Celiac, and this place is our FAVORITE place to enjoy an incredible meal & drinks for date night. The food is 10/10 and has the best Spicy Margarita I have yet to find around Central Texas. Service is spot on EVERY SINGLE TIME! We live in Georgetown, and will continue to make the drive for this incredible spot.

    Biggest issue was that we didn’t get our table until 30-45 minutes after our reservation. Wait staff was kind and knowledgeable, but probably understaffed by 1 or 2. Food was good, but not as good as expected - nothing crazy flavor-wise despite the unique combinations on the menu. Menu is well curated, and features a list of employees on the back, which is sweet. Decor is great. Inside is loud and lively, full of large business dinners and groups of families/friends. Overall we’re not going back but are happy we went once.

    Had a fabulous meal again at ATX Cocina. The salmon is exceptionally well prepared, and the flavours are amazing. However, by far, the corn side dish is probably the best thing on the menu. Service was excellent and server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Overall, a great dining experience.

    Food was delicious, that’s probably its only saving grace. The place is extremely noisy. The hostess was curt and rude. It was a late dinner for my teenage and I after a long day and she was unapologetic and sat us right next to the bar area which was so loud. I’m not sure why this place gets such high ratings with service as such. I can only think this is where people want to be seen.

    The food was absolutely delicious, drinks were incredible. It was a Wednesday at 8:45pm in the middle of a thunderstorm yet it was still so loud and bustling, it'd be easy to believe it had been a Saturday night at 6pm. We had a reservation and were seated exactly on time. The food came out quickly and was WAY larger portions than we expected! This is not a "small plates" place. I highly recommend the caesar salad, the margarita, and the nacho.

    ATX is one of our favorites but might be getting too expensive now for what it is. We had the ribs for two ($94!) and, while it was amazing, it really wasn’t a huge plate of ribs and only came with shaved carrots, which were pickled and not our favorite. Side dishes will be another $12-$14. Drinks were the same. I don’t mind paying $12 for a margarita but these were tiny and didn’t really wow us. Draft beers were also small but very reasonable. Our guacamole was fairly plain. Dessert was an excellent homemade-tasting ice cream. We don’t mind spending a lot but, in this case, some things didn’t seem worth the price. This was our third trip but it might be a while before we try ATX again. On a better note, our service was excellent! Don’t sit inside unless you like a very loud ambience. Outside is fine if it’s not too hot.

    We’re visiting Austin and ATX Cocina was recommended to us. Wheni tried making reservations via Open Table, the only openings for our night of interest was 5:45, too early. So I left my name and number on the restaurant’s phone no and someone was kind enough (Caroline?) to actually call me back. She was able to get us in at 6:45 on the patio. I said I was concerned that it might be hot, but she said that at that time of the day it should be ok. Online reviews said inside was super loud so I went for it and glad of it. It was warm but there was a breeze and they have mini fans attached to each table. Food was delicious, had their ceviche, grilled octopus, guacamole and aged NY strip steak. All delicious with the flavors playing off each other beautifully. The guac was surprisingly bland though, and I asked for lime wedges and used the salt off my husband’s drink glass rim to fix it. Ali (sp?) was an amazing server, completely professional, knowledgeable and uplifting overall! The place is pricey but great food. And yes, while walking in an out of the restaurant to the patio, we were glad we didn’t sit inside and subject ourselves to the din therein,
