Jose - Dallas
Have followed this chef for years, but this was an uneven experience. Red and greens salsas, spicy carrot soup and “eloite” were the best we have ever has anywhere. Entrees of shrimp and crab tacos with refried black beans and green rice were tasteless, flavorless and we would have sent them back but we were on a tight schedule for a holiday event and dining with rarely seen dear friends around whom we wished to avoid any kind of negative interjections. The beans and rice were clearly warmed over and served at tepid temperatures. The grilled shrimp bore no signs of grilling, looked boiled or steamed with no seasoning...was likely frozen. Likewise the crab lacked flavor and was skimpy. The decor and ambiance are middle of the road in a repurposed prefab metal building. Service was attentive but does not make up for poor quality food at top prices.
The food here is excellent. The service can be iffy... But it's a crowded place. I can wait for food. 😁
The drinks and the food at Jose are amazing! The atmosphere didn't quite match the food, but that's OK. The food is off the charts good!
Food and service was outstanding. Highly recommend José.
Best bartenders and delicious entrees-exceptional and fast service
Food was just ok. Not as good as the last time we visited.
Upscale Mexican cuisine. Great drink options. Lively menu. Excellent wait staff
Service seriously lacking.
This place is unbelievable. The food is top notch and the price is very reasonable. We had 2 very you children with us and the waiter was extremely attentive to our needs. Keep it up!
Delicious food- from salsas to entrees
Very good & attentive service
Fun welcoming atmosphere
Loud and chilly. Good service, and tasty food and drinks, but definitely overpriced for what it is.
Great food and atmosphere was lively. Our server was extremely pleasant and excited about the food. Will be back!
A little high on price
Always enjoy dining at Jose. Brunch is a favorite. Waitstaff attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The green salsa is epic. Eat here a couple times a momth
Parking is awful.
There was a large group of people who had finished eating but stayed around and talked to other diners. They were loud and stood right next to our table, while blocking waitstaff and people trying to exit the patio. It was annoying because they were on top of us. I felt bad for the staff
Outstanding food, service, and ambiance as usual!!
Always delicious! Always fun! A great place to enjoy good food with good friends!
Yum! Very delicious and fresh.
Excellent atmosphere. Menu is really good and the frozen margaritas are the very best in Dallas.
Our server kept trying to rush us so we had to make sure he understood we were not wanting to be rushed through our meal. The Park City enchilada were absolutely HORRIBLE, entirely drenched in queso so you could not taste any thing else. Terrible experience
Great selection of true Mexican dishes and creative cocktails.
Such a wonderful experience, it’s a must visit in Dallas.
Fabulous drinks...duck empanada fabulous.... Short Rib special was fall off the bone delicious. This place is a real treat because the quality of the food is so wonderful.
Jose is always good. consistent. very good service.
Nothing like a cold drink in the patio on windy summer night.
Food was very good, bar service was great too, only downfall was having to wait long for a table even though we had made a reservation, but, that is Dallas !
Everything ordered was excellent. Looking forward to my next visit. The positive reviews are right on target. Eileen, our server, was also excellent. Will recommend this restaurant to my other friends and family.
The food was not disappointing, we returned with a friend, who was less than pleased last time and has turned his opinion into a enthusiastic thumbs up. The drinks are always some of my faves, and the fact that a 'Carajillo' is available on the menu makes me like it more. (I hate having to describe that to places to make it for me) We ventured and tried the salmon y avocado and it was SUPER flavorful and spicy (I'm a whimp) but I kept eating it. My friends did not think it was as spicy as i thought it was, so take that as you may. The other new item tried was the impossible cake, so much goodness! The taste, the textures and the presentation all great!
Light, modern, airy ambience feels like your outside. Incredible food! We had the salmon stuffed avocado and the flavors were wonderful! Excellent Benedict, too! Get it with the sausage! Pricy, but deserving cocktails. We.’lol definitely be back!
Anastacia is the best chef in Dallas for Tex Mex or true Mex. We follow wherever she goes. And as always Jose’s food has improved immeasurably since her arrival.
Expensive & small drinks. Found hair in my entree and cilantro rice was way over salted. So disappointed. Second chance and failed. Will not be back & will not recommend.
Delicious food and great service. The restaurant is beautiful.
Awesomeness!!!! Love food Love drinks Love serves!!!
Really loved our server, fidel- food was good but the “avocado” toast wasn’t my favorite. It needs more toasty-ness and more avacado. Maybe a side of sometbing like sour cream or even a sour cream avacado mixture? We will be back!
It was an excellent experience, for the most part. We got there a bit early and were told our table was not ready. This was not a problem as we anticipated having to wait. We sat at the bar, and the bartender gave us the option to have dinner at the bar which we did. Food and service were excellent, and we were pleased with our experience. However, we received an email from Open Table telling us that we never checked in and considered us a ”no show.” Clearly, that was not the case. There seemed to have been a gap in communication. We cleared this with Open Table.
Four of us went on Saturday night, and the restaurant was very busy. Two of us arrived early, and the hostess declined to seat us until the entire party arrived, but she seated us as soon as our entire party was there. The service was excellent, and the food was very good. We had pork riblets and queso fundido for appetizers and Park Cities enchiladas and crab enchiladas for main courses. The restaurant has a large patio outdoors, and the indoor portion is basically one big room with a bar and numerous tables throughout the room. It was entirely too loud to be able to converse with our excellent waiter, Carlos, and the others in our party without shouting. It is a very casual venue and quite comfortable other than the noise. As Carlos pointed out, the menu is traditional Mexican, not Tex-Mex. We most likely will return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Jose's on Saturday. The food, drinks and ambiance were all enjoyable and we will be back soon.
Our son recommended Jose after dropping in for brunch one Sunday, and we have been now multiple times and have enjoyed it every single time. Food is fresh from local farms, and always on point. We have recommended Jose to many friends - all whom have been most impressed. One of our fave spots in D (we live in Longview) Jose is a a destination for any meal or special occasion. We were there with friends today earlier for brunch - can’t wait to go back!
