    Beautiful venue with excellent service, but very noisy with loud music and patrons. The menu is extensive but seems to mostly consist of various enchiladas stuffed with all imaginable. The food was tasty, but not exceptional. Dinner is quite expensive.

    Rushed the entire meal. The server never gave us any down time and for an upscale restaurant with a $600 bill for 4 people, it would be nice not to feel like they couldn’t wait for us to leave.

    Had a reservation. Checked my in at host stand which was chaotic. No one around us seemed to know what to do. Hosts seemed annoyed and unfriendly to everyone. Felt rushed from the moment we were seated. Server kept coming over every couple of minutes to try and take our order. Didn’t really allow us time to settle in. Ordered drinks. Had a few minutes to enjoy and kept coming back to get our order. Finally ordered. Food arrived 7-10 minutes later. No joke! Literally takes longer to get my food at Taco Bell. Definitely took away the feeling that the entree was made for me. Very pricey fast food!! Just go to RedO’s across the street for a better experience. Less hectic vibe, food and prices comparable but never felt rushed there.. And feels a little less like eating in a cave.

    Javier's is a great go-to spot for lunch and dinner regardless of occasion and group size. There is a great variety on the menu to choose from and you won't be disappointed. I ordered the tasty chopped salad with shrimp and it was the perfect amount of shrimp proportionate to the salad.

    It is a nice place. Great menu. Our server Juan was excellent. A bit pricey for some items, but what isn’t expensive nowadays. One minor observation; seating is cramped (tables way too close to each other, needed to squeeze in So as not to inconvenience the other people adjacent to us) resulting in servers occasionally bumping into seated guests.

    Absolutely fantastic meal. The enchiladas were the best I’ve ever had. Really flavorful. And the churros were light and flaky with perfectly creamy vanilla ice cream.

    The patio where we sat was lovely-very tropical and cool on a very warm afternoon. Food was tasty, yet nothing unique for the very elevated pricing. Bar area was eye-catching and I would imagine a draw for many. I would recommend to a friend with a warning about the prices.

    What amazing, authentic Mexican food! We were blown away by the Mole sauce, which was rich and peppery. The carnitas were to die for. The margaritas were really delicious and just the right strength. This was probably the best restaurant I have taken my family to in quite some time.

    Great ambience, food is always mediocre and overpriced for what it is, service is always just okay, check in hostess is never friendly, bathrooms were dirty, tables were dirty. I love Javiers for the ambience but every time I go - I ask myself why I am going here to have mediocre service and mediocre food only to have a great ambience. I would love if their menu changed and the food got better and they actually had staff that makes you feel welcomed.
