Contemporary Mexican
Jalisco Norte is a journey through Mexico without ever leaving the table. Executive Chef José Meza, who was born and raised in Mexico, takes diners on a culinary experience with his nostalgia for Mexican cuisine and expertise in some of the world’s top restaurants. From Martin Berasategui, a Michelin three-starred restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain to the best restaurant in the world, NOMA in Copenhagen, Denmark, Chef Meza has taken his learnings from each experience to create a truly unique dining experience for patrons here at Jalisco Norte. Meza’s dishes reflect Mexican heritage and tradition, while sticking to the philosophy of obtaining only the highest-quality ingredients and maintaining standards of high-end service required of the best restaurants. He draws inspiration from his family. During his travels through his home country from Oaxaca, Puebla and Yucatan, and from those towns, he crafted menu items that pay homage to its people, cultures and customs.

The food was good, but one person in our party has lactose intolerant so ordered the chilaquiles With No cheese, no cheese she said and the waiter replied No cheese, the meal came WITH cheese.
Because we had been waiting for long, she didn’t send those back, it was the kind of place where they bring you the drinks and make you wait long before having the order taken.
In fact we told them 2 times we were ready to order and just at the third time we call then the order was taken.
We were hungry already and when the chilaquiles came with cheese it was too late to again wait even more.

Then with the check, the waiter said my 2 credit cards were denied whereas I’ve been in town 2 Full days already and buying all kind of stuff and paying in different stores, so we had to pay in cash, lucky us we had enough for the unexpected situation.
Not a pleasant visit.

We used to have another "Go to..." Mexican restaurant but the quality of their food has been poor of late. Hands down, Jalisco Norte is among the best, if not the best, Mexican restaurant we have ever visited. My only regret is that it has been open, and within walking distance of our home, for several years and we discovered it only 2 weeks ago.

Two Birthdays. Very disappointed that nothing was done until we had to ask and that’s after someone called to confirm the reservation and the birthday. Someone brought a cake to share as we were living. We spent a lot of money but nothing to celebrate the birthdays. What happened to good customer service? I guess y’all don’t want return business.

The first time I went to brunch I received burned eggs with a bottle of salsa on top. I gave them a second chance. I asked for poached eggs with a runny yolk. I was given overcooked eggs. I sent them back and asked for over-easy eggs and they gave me overcooked eggs. The ham had a strange flavor and the beans were inedible. These eggs must be sitting under a heat lamp for a long time to be consistently be overcooked. I'll never go back again for brunch. The evening meals I have had there have been ok at best, but edible, but the brunch is so bad that it makes me not want to go there at all.

We arrived at the restaurant at 8:03 pm for an 8:00 pm reservation only to find that the table we specifically reserved (as we have done in the past) had just been given away to another party. When we asked why, the new person at the reception desk was absolutely just plane rude and very unprofessional. He ruined what should have been a delightful evening. Management needs to address that situation!

Starters: guacamole and street corn were great.
Dinner: I had a short rib taco. Flavor was very good. Husband had chicken poblano enchiladas. The bite I had of it was nice - mild flavored dish. You can truly tell that all ingredients are fresh. Next time I will try the mole. I hear it’s bueno!

Javier was a very attentive waiter.

Overall, very good experience.

Ordered the 3 egg breakfast over easy. It came out hard fried scrambled on a small casserole dish. Not even 3 eggs.
They remade to b over easy, but not good, fried. They charged me an additional $2.00 to cook over easy. They would not take off bill. Yes, I got charged an additional $2.00. That’s a first. Brunch not good. Beans horrible flavor.

Leo was an excellent waiter! Our whole group of six had an ideal restaurant experience from seating to service to food to the ambiance. We have been before and will continue to go here for date nights or group dinners. It is especially good for groups!

The ceviche, cowboy queso, scallops entree, and all of the desserts are perfect! Can't go wrong with their cocktails either!

This place was definitely one for the books. I came here to celebrate our anniversary and my girlfriend loved it her. Coming from a picky eater the food was amazing. Our waiter, Jesus, was the best. From making us laugh to making sure our food was good and our glasses were never empty!
