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.

    Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. The ceviche appetizer was very tangy and tasty. I tried the shrimp with coconut rice and it was better than expected.. But my husband’s order for carne asada was sent back as the meat was so bad.

    Arrived on time. Restaurant not busy. Seated immediately. Chips and Salsa arrived quickly. No wait staff came after 15 mins. Had to get a bottle of water from the water station. Waited a further 5 mins. Had to go to the hostess to ask for table service. Table service finally arrived with an insincere apology. At this point we opted to only order 2 items from the menu and for go trying several items due to the underwhelming experience. We felt unwelcome which was very disappointing. We were excited to try Jalisco but when you’re made to feel unwelcome it ruins entire experience.

    We had the pleasure of having own the best waiters one could ask for… Angel was outstanding at his profession, and we will definitely be dining again. The drink recommendations were fantastic. We had the “Izamal” and the “El Tequino”. Both of them were great, but if I had to chose one. It would be the “Izamal”.

    Food was bland, beer was served at room temperature. There were six people in our party- we ordered a variety of tacos and enchiladas and the consistent review was that there was little to no flavor and the portions were small.

    We went for a Saturday lunch & they sat us in the “treehouse” room. Love the ambiance- you really don’t feel like you’re eating in a shopping center. It feels modern but cozy. Our waiter Jesus was delightful. He was happy and helpful but not overbearing. The menu is very creative and we enjoyed everything we tried. I definitely recommend trying this great restaurant. We will be back.

    We had lunch on a Thursday. I would venture to say that there was maybe 20 total customers there. Our server was cordial and efficient. My lunch companion had an order of guacamole & a bowl of posole. The guacamole had a very acrid flavor. She said her posole had some oil on it and it totally ruined the anticipated flavor. She only had 5 or 6 spoonfuls. I had fish tacos. The pico de gallo was so watery that it saturated the corn tortillas and they disintegrated. The baramunid fish (maybe 2 oz each) was rubbery and VERY fishy-smelling. The server offered to bring me more tortillas, but by that point, I was "over it". Very disappointing experience.

    The ambience was perfect for a date night out. I was excited for the drink menu and all items order were delicious and well crafted. The food was not your normal Mexican plate servings. The pairings and presentation were phenomenal. I really enjoyed every aspect of this place. My favorite part was the Spanish songs selection. They didn’t stick to one genre, had it on shuffle and was not turn up to the point where you can hear yourself.

    I had an POOR OVERALL experience that had EVERYTHING to do the managers Agustin. But nothing to do with the staff or food. I am honestly surprised that Agustin is in his postition as manager he has poor delivery when it comes to customer service. I reserved a table online in ample time, upon arrival 50% of my party was ready to sit at the table we reserved, but Agustin directed Valtina (hostess) to interject and deny us our table until 9 of our 10 guest appeared. Then when speaking to him, he was rude, arrogant, i honestly felt like a nuisance in the restaurant when instead i should’ve felt welcome, he told me: well you can sit at your table when we have 7-8 ppl here. Mind you, i was in heels carrying a 2 year old sleeping baby, simply wanted to have a seat while we awaited the rest. I ended up having better service thanks to the waiters: abraham and luis - valentina was suuuuper amazing as well and asked us to please forgive her mgr for his delivery. Had it not been for the amazing food and valentina, abraham and luis i would have dined here with my family. We spent over $500 on the food and enjoyed it very much. But the bitter/sour taste of your Manager Agustin remains. I will associate his negativity in my thoughts when i think about Jalisco Norte

    First time at Jalisco and thoroughly enjoyed it! Great service and authentic Mexican food. Specialty margarita & the watermelon-tini were refreshing cocktails. My wife had the shrimp & I had the carne asada. Both delicious. Will definitely return.

    We were so excited to have brunch for my husbands birthday but clearly we weren’t the type of people this restaurant like to cater to. Service was slow and things got mixed up from the drinks and food to the separate checks we needed. I had better expectations since a friend recommended the place. We were there for 3 hours due to how slow the service was, our plan to to be out in less than 2 hours because we had planned our day.

    The food was unique and authentic in taste. The decor was clean and vibrant. The service was kind, hospitable, and attentive. The noise level was extremely loud. The music was elevated to a point where it thundered more like a night club at 12 midnight than 12 noon. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their conversations up to the point when the staff decided to crank the music up to a point that you almost had to shout to be heard across a table.
