Opened in 2018 by Dallas restaurateur Mico Rodriguez, Doce Mesas is a return to his roots. From 12 tables (doce mesas) in the 90s to massive success in his M Crowd ventures Mico has seen it all. Armed with a passion for food and a penchant for good service, this is his best one yet.

Doce Mesas emits a California coastal vibe with billowing white curtains and a beautiful wraparound patio. A breezy indoor outdoor flow and white table cloths makes for an intimate and upscale feel that is still accessible to families. Pair that with Dallas’ favorite margaritas and you’ll never want to leave.

Guacamole is one of the freshest I have ever had. The fish entree was excellent. Drinks were well mixed. Our server was attentive and prompt. Highly recommend and will come back for perhaps earlier dinner as the noise level was a bit too high for me.

My friend and I had tried the restaurant once before and I was very impressed by the food and service. So when it came time to celebrate her birthday, I was delighted that she chose Doce Mesas for her birthday meal! I invited some more friends and of course our children and all loved the food and experience! I am telling everyone I know about this great place! Carmen and Saul made us feel like we were guests in their homes! We will definitely be back with more friends and spouses!!!!!

This was a great surprise for us. We normally don’t stay this far uptown but did this weekend. The food and service was amazing. We did end up eating in the patio which was closed off due to the cooler weather but the like I said the food and service were fantastic and we will defiantly be back.

Our waiter was fabulous. So personable. I was there with a friend I had not seen in a while. He knew when to step in and when to leave us alone! Love all your “fresh” items on the menu. Get satisfied with Mexican food flavors w/o the high calories! Yes!

The restaurant is very nice, but the noise level on the inside is very loud. If you want to be able to talk to others in your party, book outside.

This was our first visit and we loved it. Food was so yummy and the service attentive but nonintrusive. We sat outside, with the fans and A/c units it was comfortable. The inside is super cute too- wooden floors and white tablecloth tables. Great spot for a special but not stuffy dinner.

This was my first time trying Doce Mesas. It was great! The food was so yummy, especially the ceviche. Also, the service was so great, they were so nice and so quick on everything. I love the atmosphere too. I definitely recommend and will be back!

We had a reservation for six, and they tried to convince us to take a four top with six place settings. We are not small people, so that would not work. But within 20 minutes they got us an appropriate sized table. We had a nice evening.

Trendy, modern, stylish. Carmen was the best. The chile relleno with shrimp, she recommended, was amazing. My boyfriend had the Pescado al ajillo, it disappeared before I could even have a taste, so I guess he enjoyed it. Lol. We'll be back.

Great Mexican restaurant and very accommodating staff. We showed up late and had extra folks in party- they were still able to get us a table in 5 mins. The food was delicious and servers were excellent. Would highly recommend! Also great guacamole and spicy margaritas

Great food, GREAT margaritas, but they don't really do well with reservations. Even with a reservation, I always end up waiting 15-20 minutes for a table. Not bad if you're not in a rush, but if you have set plans after dinner I would not recommend coming here because you will be late.

We were seated on the patio Saturday night...very pleasant and much more relaxed than the main dining area which was very, shall we say, vibrant! Ceviche was superb, entrees first class, and server was top notch. We'll be back!

We were looking for a fun Mexican restaurant to take our Grandson. I Yelped Mexican Restaurants Knox Henderson. They had 4.5 stars. We can certainly see why. The food was so good. We couldn't make up our minds between Guacamole (delicious) and the queso so our server suggested we do half and half! Amazing. I couldn't decide between two tacos … once again, one of each. My husband and Grandson had enchiladas with con carne sauce …. Sooooo good! Service was great and it wasn't too noisy. Definitely a repeat. It was too hot for the patio but when the weather cools down it would be a great patio to sit and enjoy food and drink! The margaritas were outstanding as well.

They forgot about our check and then asked us to move tables to make room for a bigger reservation when we were wanting our check, then they never brought our check and focused on the larger table.
