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.

Main course took over an hour. Waiter forgot to put our order in. Made no effort to make up for it.

We were enjoying a birthday celebration and didn't come to eat, but wanted a dinning experience. Ordering through the varied menu provided just that. We had a fun, great night. Server Summer was awesome.

Food was overall very good! The appetizers were great. The only downsides were the heirloom carrots that were definitely not heirloom carrots and were over cooked. The carne guisada short rib although delicious wasn’t reminiscent of a carne guisada at all. The prices are extremely high for cocktails, wine and food even for downtown Austin. The service was phenomenal. I do feel that the concept is a steakhouse with some Mexican touches. This is not an upscale Mexican restaurant.

My wife has Celiac disease, so a gluten free facility is a HUGE plus to start! During Covid ATX provided a safe socially distant environment with all appropriate precautions and protocols in place.

We had the Sopes appetizer which were delicious, and considering the habanero salsa were not as hot as expected.

Entrees were the Hamachi and Pulpo y Chorizo. The hamachi was outstanding, sashimi style slices but light and citrusy like ceviche. The octopus was out of this world.....combined with the chorizo and purée ate a lot like an upscale barbacoa chalupa (unusual but incredible).

Tequila and mezcal options were endless with a LOT of good options.

Our waiter Madison was HANDS DOWN THE BEST! His culinary passion was inviting, and his service was second to NONE. We’re a bit picky about our food, but even harder in service and Madison did not miss a beat....EVER!

If you’re craving Tex-Mex with a soy margarita go elsewhere, but if you’re looking for legit interior Mexico cuisine with craft cocktail and 5-Star service stop on by!

I made a meal out of the amazing starters and my husband loved the short rib entree. I would have given the ambiance five stars but I am not a fan of tent dining—during normal times, the restaurant’s interior and patio are wonderful. We intentionally chose outdoor for Covid safety.

Rick and Bridgett have outstanding service! They knew exactly what I needed when I needed it and never let any of my drinks go empty. Excellent, welcoming, and friendly service always makes any dining experience memorable. The food is beyond perfection. Everything has so much flavor. Every bite makes you close your eyes and smile with delight! ATX Cocina remains my number 1 spot in Austin!

Had heard really great things but was mildly disappointed. We went during COVID times, so taking it with a grain of salt...however, the menu items (especially mains) were really pricey. A bit hard to justify IMO

Super great food and drinks! I had the salmon and the short rib. Wow, so tasty. I was shocked at the total cost of the bill! Great food though... I’ll just make sure to come back on special occasions only or else I’ll be broke :)
