The ambiance just made everything better. Such a hip modern vibe. The decor was so fresh and interesting. I thought it was a bit expensive ($17 for ceviche app) but it was all very good. The chicken enchiladas were big enough to split which was plenty. I really wanted to try a cocktail but couldn’t bring myself to pay $14+ We will likely go back.

Service was pretty bad. I waited 15 minutes for someone to greet me at my table. Service did not check in on our table during our meal, and our drink orders were consistently wrong. I tipped 20% but I should not have left a tip at all.

Everything was good except the service was not as good as it usually is. Our waiter seemed to forget about us so thankfully Hector noticed and stepped in to take care of us. He asked if I wanted another drink when he noticed my empty glass, etc. It wasn’t that busy so I don’t know why our waiter wasn’t as attentive as Hector. We ran out of chips, water and margaritas. Thankfully it was a nice day on the patio and a good employee like Hector was on top of things. I wish I could have given the tip to Hector instead of my waiter since he did more of the work.

I love Jose's and it's my go to for taking out of town guests out to eat. Took a colleague here who was visiting from CA and we both really enjoyed the food, drinks and atmosphere. Sat outside and love Jose's patio! Reliably good food, environment etc.

The wine list needs some work as they need a variety for those of us that do not drink tequila or mezcal.
The red wine list offered very few choices. The appetizer
Queso fundido was very good as was the corn tortillas.
The street corn was also very tasty, as well as the tacos beef al carbon. Was not a fan of the chicken enchiladas Suiza, chicken had no flavor. Our waiter Carlos was very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed my lunch at Jose's. The food was great and the service was good. Very relaxed atmosphere with outside seating available. It was a bit frustrating that the waiter came to the table and swiped my credit card but never brought me back a receipt. I had to go to the front and request one. Seems to me a receipt should be automatic, either by email or paper. Or at least the waiter should have asked me if I wanted one.

Ok, here’s the thing.... my spouse and I were never fans of Mexican or Central American food. Either it was too spicy, too Tex-Mexy, whatever....
Well, we decided to try it again. We went with friends that love this food. Jose was a restaurant they highly recommended that we try for our first foray into authentic and good Mexican food. The food did not disappoint. It was prepared well. Tasted great.
We will be dining at Jose again.

Unfortunately, our experience started off negatively in the parking lot when valet questioned us parking in handicap parking. My husband is a disabled veteran with a handicap DV plate. He was told that handicap parking is Reserved for their “VIPs” by their valet. This is highly concerning as we were there on the anniversary of 9/11 that they would miss use handicap parking for as they described ‘luxury vehicle‘s’ and ‘VIP’ patrons. It was difficult to recover the overall experience when that was his introduction to the restaurant. Hopefully they can educate their valet on how to properly and legally use handicap parking.

Our hotel concierge at the Mansion at Turtle Creek rec’d José for dinner and it was a home run! The food is creative and delicious, the cocktails were sublime, and the space is SO stylish and cool. It was busy on a Thurs night, but not overwhelming. We absolutely loved it and cannot wait to go back.

Waiter forgot our drinks and the food took quite a while to come out in spite of a fairly empty restaurant. Waiter was very pleasant and the food was good though.

Beautiful space. Nice that they have the complimentary valet (just working for tips). Cocktails were exceptional! As were the handmade tortillas. Large portions for the entrees. Loved the soft shell crab and Veracruzana style fish.

Nice place, with very well-designed outside patios. Service is OK, though you don't get the sense that the staff is energized by their jobs. The key downside is the food. It is vapid and tasteless. We tried some enchiladas and fish tacos. I literally left most of my enchiladas untouched. My wife had the fish tacos, and while they were nicely presented, they had no taste (including the sauces). This stuff is not hard to make, so clearly the cuisine is not their priority. Looks like they want to exploit their location and decos, and maybe it's a good place for drinks and chips (though even the chips were stale).
All in all, a vastly overrated and eminently forgettable place. And not cheap either, so it cannot be excused as a dive for cheap Tex-Mex.

Jose is wonderful, especially in a Monday for lunch with friends. Thank you for requiring masks! The staff and our server were delightful. The food was delicious as always, but I gave four stars as the tortilla chips that came with our guacamole were stale.

The food was so so. Not really better than other Mexican restaurants. There were a lot of flies inside. So many that we had to constantly shoo them away from our food. I've never been in a restaurant with so many flies. Service was o.k. Nothing to rave about. We probably won't go there again. We have so many restaurants to choose from.
