The ambience was terrific. I loved the energy that flowed through the room. The service was great and so was our server! The drinks were good and the food came in a timely manner. The problem was with the food, the food was of poor quality and quantity. I've had just as good or better tacos at your average chain drive thur. I would visit Javiers again just for the drinks and the atmosphere. I would recommend Javiers to a friend for drinks only!

We made a reservation, but they failed to look for us when our party arrived, even though we were in their waiting area!
Once we were seated, service was better thanks to Armando, but it was ridiculously cold at our table. No heat lamps! 😟🌬🌪

It didn't meet my expectations. I was expecting something more elegant and sophisticated. However our waiter was amazing, no complaints about him. The music was so loud we couldn't even have a conversation without having to strain our voices and as a singer that is something that highly impacts me. My chips were taken away after I had my food boxed up and i still wanted to munch on some chips. Salsa was spicy along with my mashed potatoes. Having a woman in the restroom was, in my opinion low class and I wanted to take selfies but couldn't become of that woman there. The food tasted good and my meat was well cooked, soft and juicy so that was the only enjoyable part.

I had a nice dinner but although we had reservations we had to wait over 15 minutes to be seated outside on the patio when I requested inside booth. The did quickly change our table and the rest of the evening was nice. My husband had the ribeye steak with fries and he lived it! I hand the seafood trio dish and it was amazing

The atmosphere, food and service were amazing. A little pricey but well worth it. My wife and I are vegan and we were very impressed with selections. My only complaint was the guacamole. Usually in a Mexican restaurant of this caliber they make the guacamole at the table. Javier's does not, they make it every hour the waiter informed us. However it was just mashed up avocado, no added ingredients, very disappointing. Everything else was delicious. They need to step it up with the Guacamole.

Horrible experience. Had a reservation and they sat us outise in 50 degree weather. When we asked for the heater to be turned on they said they'd check. After asking three different people they informed us it wasnt working. So after they knowingly sat us outside with a table that didnt have a heater we asked for another table. They didnt have one and we left. Not going back.

Great evening with girlfriends. Even in dreary weather the outdoor seating with the gigantic fireplace was perfect. Love the yummy vegan options. Will definitely return! Although I wasn't celebrating my birthday I was completely surpirsed when several waiters walked out with dessert in hand to serenade my friend. Thanks Javiers!!!!

Javi’s is always a favorite; in Newport, Irvine, and now Century City. The BEST margs and Palomas as well as guacamole and the shrimp fajitas. Effortlessly sexy ambiance, outstanding service, and dark sultry booths for cuddling and sharing a special moment even during a weekly date night.

First of all waiter forgot our appetizers, then he had an emergency and had to leave and left our table up in the air.
At the end of the night two customers that were dining on different tables got into a fight and there was not even one security to take care of it.
I tried to calm them down and separate them cause they were right in front of our table and end up leaving early because of this situation.

Incredibly overpriced for the quality and quantity. Expect to spend between 100 and 150 per couple with one drink per person for a very small amount of food. You get better food and 3x as much at El Torito with immensely better customer service. Our server was nice but the hostess and managers are rude and the restaurant is most definitely not family friendly.
