Contemporary Mexican
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.

Dress up, sit inside, talk loud cause it’s loud! But I’m sure everyone is talking about how good the food is! Elevated Mexican you’ll not be disappointed.

Unique modern Mexican flavors! Amazing, crafted cocktails. Near Lady Bird lake in beautiful downtown Austin. I was quite delighted by all the flavors.

Delicious food and great service. Unfortunately at the end of the expensive meal we were still very hungry, portions could be larger.

The main courses were fabulous. I did find a bone and scare in the red snapper crude, but it is fish and is bound to happen. the duck carnitas were fabulous! Along with the barbacoa and carne asada. The drinks were very original and fabulous. The only real complaint I had was the dessert. I'm a huge flan lover and the corn like flan that was served, actually just tasted like corn. The Desserts were the disappointment of the night but they were comped as the chocolate cake we had was so hard we couldn't dig into it. Overall though, I will be going back to try out the rest of the menu. The server was very knowledgeable as well and guided us through the whole menu.

Took over an hour to get dinner after we ordered. Was pretty disappointing. Brought to our servers attention three times. Lamb dinner was over cooked. Cool setting, but left a lot to be desired.

There were three of us at ATX on a quiet Sunday evening.
It was LOUD. It is nicely decorated but when three people at small table can’t hear each other, that is a problem.

Service was terrible. Waiter was nice enough but everything took forever. Long wait for drinks. Long wait for food and they forgot one item. There was such a long wait for it that we took it home. Long wait for second drink. I might understand this if it was a busy night but it was not. Food was okay but not exceptional. Much hyped tortillas were cold. We were encouraged to share food but given no serving utensils until the forgotten order arrived.

At the prices they charge I would expect better food and better service. I don’t think the problem was with our waiter, I think management did not schedule either enough kitchen help or enough service staff.

We won’t be back.

Great modern mexican food. Try the duck carnitas... the mole on them is really close the real deal. The esquites are the perfect side.

I love ATX Cocina for a nice treat dinner. We each got 2 margaritas (try the spicy margarita with Tajin rim) and ate off the smaller plate section of the menu (party of 3 gals). The salsa sampler was a hit, fresh tortillas were to die for as usual, the Sopes were crispy and INCREDIBLE, the Hamachi nearly brought tears to our eyes it was so good.. by the time the queso fundido came out we were almost too full to fully enjoy it! Will definitely come back

as always, the food was AMAZING as were the drinks. the only negative is that this place is wayyyyyy too loud. i took a girlfriend who has never been to Austin and we were seated near the bar and literally couldn’t talk at all because of the noise.
otherwise amazing!!!

ATX Cocina is my favorite place to go for lunch on Fridays. I wish it served lunch more than once a week!
Last time we went, the service was very very slow, but they did a much better time this time.
The food is incredible.

We had someone in our party that is severely celiac and it was amazing to have a restaurant be 100% gluten free! Our service, drinks, and food were all top tier and it has become a new go-to place. A little on the pricier side but totally worth it.

We went to ATX Cocina to celebrate our 20th anniversary. What a great choice. The night started with a champagne toast that our server brought along with a HAND SIGNED CARD from much of the staff wishing us well.

Chef Kevin Taylor is doing some amazing work there pumping out amazing fare. We enjoyed fresh guacamole, the salsa sampler with heirloom corn tortillas, and a ceviche like crudo. Then we were blown away by the octopus and shrimp dishes. Flan and a flourless chocolate cake dish rounded out the meal.

The staff really make this place extra special. From the aforementioned card and champagne, to the attentive service and wonderful suggestions from Richard (our server), to a visit from Matt Creekmore GM, to the fact that when I asked where the restroom was the lady I asked didn’t point and direct, she said “let me take you over there”.

What a great night to celebrate a major milestone in my life along with my wife. We aren’t social media people so no pics of the meal. Just a great memory

Thanks ATX Cocina crew.

Extraordinary service and innovative food. Delicious craft cocktail that was a two step old fashioned. Fun vibe and beautiful setting. Would love to be outside in the spring.

Fantastic food. We ordered a number of dishes to share and were very happy with all of them (especially the scallops, octopus, and quesadilla). Lovely drink, too. Friendly and attentive service. Even on a very busy night we were well served and can highly recommend this restaurant.

Good food. Atrocious service with a complete lack of acknowledgement of how poor of a job had been done. 2.5 hour meal. 45 minutes between courses. NO acknowledgment of that poor service even after we repeatedly ask what the problem was or to speak to a manager. We go here twice a month and have loved it. The food is always delicious but this experience will most likely take ATX off our dining list. It is as if they didn't care about our experience.
