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.

    Reservation was at 830. Didn’t know they closed at 9(that’s on me). But we felt very rushed and it took away from the experience. Food was good though

    We had a 745 reservation but were not seated at our table until 815. This was super annoying, particularly because the bar area was very crowded and there was no place to wait. We were not offered a drink or anything to compensate for waiting for a half hour. Once we sat down we ordered appetizers one of which was queso. Our waiter told us that it generally takes 15 minutes and we asked him to bring the other appetizer first. However the queso arrived almost immediately after the first appetizer. We ordered salmon for our entrée and asked it to be cooked through. That arrived very quickly also and was completely raw in the middle. We opted not to make a big deal about it or send it back. When we let our waiter know that the salmon was severely undercooked he was nice enough to take it off the bill. In short, although the food was good overall, we waited for a half an hour and were only seated at the table for about 45 minutes and were done with our meal. I will go back because the food was good but I think they need to manage their reservations and timing of food service more efficiently.

    Here a for concert and heard about ATX. Many of the reviews we read were very positive and they were right. The food is outstanding as well as the service. They prepared food with care and high quality ingredients. Try the Sopes and short ribs for 2 excellent and delicious. Happy hour was great and margaritas excellent. If in Austin this a must try. We went back twice.

    Far too expensive. Food is good, but the portions are too small to share. And to pay over $50 for an entree is insulting!

    Great music playlist on our last visit, congratulations on the great selection of Mexican, Spanish, and Latin American rock!! Much appreciated!!! The food was great, as always. It is such a pleasure to have this option in Austin! My only suggestion: bring the desserts up a notch. It might seem too obvious, but a good Tres Leches Cake is almost expected after such a great meal. Churros, a "Mexican" texture cheesecake, Crepas de Cajeta, would be great options from time to time. Great restaurant! Keep up the great work!!! Congratulations!!

    Our experience at ATX Cocina was very disappointed. First, we had a reservation and we were seated 20 minutes after the time of the reservation. Then, when we were seated we had to wait 10 minutes for the waiter and 15 to have water served at the table. Cocktails quality seems to have change. I had to change my drink at some point twice. The waiter was rude when changing drinks. Granted, the waiter had many tables assigned and it seems there was a staffing shortage that night. Unfortunately the whole experience wasn't as good as previously, between the waiting times during check in to get a table and between plate service, the lack of staffing to support waiter to take even plates from the table and a frustrated waiter made the whole experience uncomfortable. We stayed because we already had ordered all the food which took a long time to be served. So we decided not to have dessert and left. This is a rest with great potential, is still beautiful and with Michellin style food. Service still needs to improve in some areas to match the great food experience.

    As a celiac, it was amazing to go somewhere and not be worried. The food was scrumptious. I’ve never had better corn tortillas in my 50 years of life…including travels to Mexico.

    The food was pretty good. Spicy. I thought the pork dish was dry. Luckily they left a liter of water at the table. Great service, two waiters came by the table every 5-10 minutes. Possibly the heat outside affected how I perceived the dishes. I will go back and try more menu items.

    Very good food, as always. Be prepared for the price hike across the board. I guess that's inflation!! On the plus side, the portion sizes have increased. The reason I give 4 stars for ambience is that the noise level is quite high. The restaurant is beautiful, but all of those hard surfaces make for very high noise level. Otherwise, go and enjoy good food and good drinks!

    James provided excellent service and recommended some great options. The short ribs were tender, sopes were packed with flavor and texture was perfect. The brussel sprouts were some of the best I’ve ever had. Definitely the best meal of our weekend in Austin.

    Great experience from the moment I arrived! Friendly servers and management made themselves present. Lively place, great food, shareable portions and the bonus is everything on the menu is gluten free — do not let that deter you - everything is delicious! We never mentioned it was my birthday - the server overheard us chatting and brought out a couple of surprises!! See pics😊

    Maybe our expectations were too high from having great experiences in the past, but this time was not great. Went for good drinks, ordered 2 (spicy ATX margarita and the house margarita), did not finish them and left because they were not good. Tasted like something you’d get at The Daiquiri Factory in 1994.

    ATX is "the" place we go to show off some of Austin's best food to our house guests. This meal was no exception.The service, as always, was terrific! The guacamole and queso were excellent. Crispy fish tacos (a special) were made with salmon and delicious! EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT !

    Very disappointing for a highly anticipated meal. The food was very expensive considering the quality and taste. The atmosphere was very loud and conversation was therefore difficult. The waitress failed to answer our questions about the menu. It was $20 for a bowl of cheese that was slimy and had little favor. Please Do not waste your time at this restaurant!
