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.

Food is ok, service ok, the bar drinks too slow. Not worth coming back. The food is not real Mexican, kind of close enough but not good enough. Not coming back.

I bought two new friends there yesterday who have never done because I told them how amazing it is, and something has drastically changed. We have come dozens of times, and every time the times is incredible. I always get the Kearny Asada and I have had the cauliflower in the past. I always get the ceviche and guacamole, and all four things yesterday were a huge disappointment. Either you have different cooks, or you’ve change the quality of your food I’m not sure… The ceviche smelled fishy and did not have the presentation it used to… The guacamole was bland and we did not even eat it because it was boring, And my Carne Asada had more fat on it than it did me and it look like it was half the size that it used to be… And I never got any tortillas. I told my friends to get the cauliflower because it sounded good to them, and it just look like a plate full of cauliflower heads. No flavor and no special sauce on it at all. The drinks were still great and the service was still great

I brought my parents from out of town and we had the best experience. My parents raved over the meal and the server. Carlos was exceptional! We ordered the queso cowboy for an app and the crab enchiladas and scallops for dinner. Al were so fresh and decadent, really unique flavors that blended perfectly. We got to sit in the tree room which had amazing ambiance and they brought out an amazing très lèches for my dads birthday! Thank you Carlos and chefs for making our experience unforgettable!

This is our 2nd time at Jalisco Norte - the food is good and well presented. The service was also good. Overall though it is not anything 'special' and the little things are overlooked. Out of our 4 meals the pork was cold on two but the app ceviche was quite good. Our waiter was very nice and it was busy so he was working hard. We selected a wine to go with dinner - the waiter then came back to recommend another which proved to have a dry cork that broke. That was the last bottle so then another substitution was made. Not anyones fault but it could have been handled a bit smoother. Finally, when leaving we had to step over a vacuum as it lay on the floor and the staff stood around watching. So - overall it was 'good' but far from great. Frankly the food was the highlight.

Had a great dinner with friends from Florida and Dallas. The margaritas were a hit as well as the ceviche and carne asada, etc. Jalisco did not upset as everything we tasted was spot on delicious. The staff was outstanding and fun to share laughs with. Definitely thumbs up for recommendations.

Food was amazing yet again. Sea scallops and Chile in Mole!!! We waited 15 minutes before I asked a bus boy for a waiter. Disappointed to see our waiter was one that crossed by the table multiple times without acknowledgement. Appetizer was wrong and had to send it back. Carlos mind was elsewhere as typically the wait staff is great. We were celebrating my wives birthday and no acknowledgment as per previous special occasions we’ve celebrated their before.

Had a great time, sat at the bar and the bartenders was great. The games were on and it is a very Nice on the inside as well as out. My date and I we sat at our tables in a nice dark area that was sexy with a cool view with glass windows all around. The food was very good and tasty. The only complaint I have is, when I got to the bar, it was dirty. The bartender cleaned it soon as I asked, but it was with the bar towel and not sprayed like a table.

Service was not great. Cold enchiladas on hot plate which makes me think they where made way ahead of time. Queso fundido wasn’t really melted well.

The food wasn’t very tasty. I ordered the halibut which was smothered in a dark sauce that did not compliment the fish at all. You basically couldn’t taste the fish. The margarita was very good, and the server Abraham was excellent. The ambiance was good, felt like a large tree house. Based on the food I would not return.

Food was amazing and our server Abraham was fabulous! Abraham took the time to show me how to properly roll my tortilla putting together all the proper ingredients for me, it was like we had our own private chef right at our table! We will definitely be visiting again!!!

The service was below average. Our server was very friendly but he was no where to be found for a good 30 minutes at one point. This was odd because there were at least 5 wait staff and one runner, and the restaurant was only 1/3 full? The hostess was terse. Food was average, portions a bit smaller than other Mexican restaurants. Prices are what you’d expect for Dallas brunch ($12-$18/plate).
