Have been going to Javier's Newport beach for many visits. We are so delighted to have Javier's Century City. It is another version, however still amazing.

The food was Excellent, the service was Outstanding - our waiter Oscar was great. His recommendation for the three seafood enchiladas was spot on. I really enjoyed the food. The only drawback is that it is a bit loud in the restaurant. I am definitely looking forward to the next time.

I wasn't happy about waiting an hour to get our food. Yes, we ordered one steak, but it shouldn't have taken an hour. The other entrees were served cold while the steak meal was very hot. Also, it didn't like that that there is no children's menu. The food tasted good if you like cold tacos and enchiladas, rice and beans. The order ticket was apparently lost then found which contributed to the long wait, but no offset in service to compensate for their mistake and our unhappy experience.

We were celebrating a birthday. The hostess and server went out of their way to take care of the cake.
The birthday song was enthusiastically and melodically rendered and the cake cutting (including ice cream) were promptly served. Great experience.

I went to Javier’s in New Port Beach with my Mom and Sister for Mother’s Day for the first time and everything was amazing. I took my husband to Javier’s in Century City for Father’s Day because I raved about how good it was and how great of a time we had inn Mothers Day during our visit.

Upon our arrival to Javier’s, my husband and I were immediately seated. However our waiter took forever to come over and greet us. He was very disengaged as if he simply just did not want to be there. There was such a long wait between order drinks and getting them as well as the foods we had to ask other waiters to send him over several times.

I ordered the same thing that I’d ordered at the New Port Beach location minus one of the Enchiladas. So instead of the trio, I opted for the crab and lobster enchiladas (without the shrimp). The lobster enchilada didn’t have the same rich green sauce as it did when I order in New Port Beach. When I asked the waiter he shrugged and said that’s just how it comes. I ate a little and brought the remainder home... didn’t enjoy it as much.

We ordered the chocolate cake desert and asked if it could be warmed. The waiter said yes and took forever to bring it to us. By the time we got it, it wasn’t warm.

By this time, my husband was over the experience. We sent it back and the waiter then said he could warm it for us, but we just wanted the check at this time.

Although the Century City location is closer to us, we’ll visit the New Poet Beach location going forward.

On a good note, the Century City location has better salsa! 😁.

Thanks for the opportunity to share feedback. Hopefully it will be accepted as constructive feedback and positive modifications.

Best,

Ty

Had a very nice dinner. It is a very pretty restaurant with a variety of seating areas that are all comfortable and conducive to conversation, though the music was a bit loud. The food, drinks and service are high quality, though a bit pricey compared to other Mexican food restaurants. However, this is not a chain restaurant and the food and service are a cut above. I would happily return.

Service at this location is horrible. I have eaten here several times and it's always the same. Bad service. The staff never follows through with requests like; drink refills, chip and salsa refill and getting the order correctly. Every time someone in my party has the wrong order delivered to the table. I dont believe this staff was trained properly but most disterbing is that I dont believe they even care.... bad service will ultimately be the downfall of Javiers. Paying premium prices and getting Del Taco service is not a long term success strategy.

Beautiful restaurant design. Food was good but some items were overpriced. For example, $25 for two tacos with a small portion of rice and beans. No kids menu but there is a vegan menu. I would return for the spinach enchiladas and tres leches cake, which was perfectly moist and cold.
