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.

The food was delicious, the plating was gorgeous, and the service was amazing. Everything on the menu looked very appealing! The only thing I’d caveat is that the serving sizes are a bit small! Apart from that, great experience and definitely will be coming back :)

ATX Cocina is one of my favorites and a place I like to bring people who are new to Austin. Food is delicious and service is great. I appreciate their attention and care to guest allergies (even though I personally have no food allergies). It is a real differentiator that demonstrates their care and attention to detail.

We sat for an hour and half before our order was taken. We ended up being like the forgotten table. However, when we did eventually order and eat the food was delicious. I imagine the waitstaff was particularly slammed and we were two people at a tucked away table among lots of large tables.

It took 40 minutes to be seated with a reservation. It took another 15 minutes for someone to come to our table. We didn’t get our meal for another 40 minutes. The food was so so. We ordered a second drink that was never brought to our table.

I went with a group for a happy hour and, while the front of house and wait staff was very accommodating, we ended up leaving after one drink. I understand prices downtown are higher but $15 for a scoop of guacamole with four large chips is ridiculous. We also were forced to witness one of the chef's berating the wait staff as they went over specials for the evening.

Atmosphere was good but the quality of food, drinks and service have gone down hill considerably in recent months. The menu used to rotate seasonally but outside of a few apps there seems to be minimal menu changes since last fall. We miss their summer style dishes such as the breaded halibut and atun. The margaritas and chips and guacamole, which used to be a reliable favorite, also seem to be missing their usually quality.

I love this place so much! The food is always amazing and the gluten-free kitchen means I don't have to explain my health history to the server. The cocktails are fantastic and they have a great wine & draft beer selection. I was here recently for my birthday and they gave me a sweet signed card and a complementary dessert, which really made me feel totally spoiled. This remains one of my favorite restaurants in Ausitn for good reason!

Michelle and her team made us feel so welcome, as they always do. She recommended an outstanding cabernet to go with our El Jefe steak. Most definitely our favorite restaurant to visit when we are in Austin!

It was supposed to rain so we got a call from the restaurant to confirm we wanted to keep our reservation. The waitress worked with us very well and based on my comments i put when booking the reservation, the team at ATX Cocina placed our table accordingly. The food was also incredible!!

Easily in the top tier of all Austin restaurants, and quite possibly the best. Service is always friendly, efficient and non-intrusive. You won't find food like this anywhere else. The vibe inside is lively, the decor is sleek and sexy and attention to detail is always evident. Best Caesar salad I've ever eaten, and don't miss the huarache with mushrooms.
Can't wait to return.

Great margaritas, but not great service. An appetizer order of queso fundido took over 40 minutes and our server was not very attentive or apologetic for the delays in service.
