The food was good. Nothing ruins a dining experience like a nasty bathroom. Makes me wonder what the kitchen looks like.

Great food and a fun place. Chicken enchiladas and a classic margarita is the way to go. You will not be disappointed!!

We really enjoyed it with the exception of being seated near the bar. It was noisy.

I enjoy the food and drinks at MEX and would eat there more often if the noise level wasn't deafening! You can't even here the people you are with it's so loud.

The waitress offered chips and salsa, which we accepted. We didn't realize that they weren't complimentary like most Mexican restaurants. Our meals were good and the service was fine.

The place was hopping with guests, the food tasted good. The exception to a better rating (frankly I think I was generous in my rating,) is that they were woefully understaffed. Every phase of the meal was super slow and they ran out of guacamole at 7:30. (How can that happen?). The server was friendly and apologetic and the restaurant comped some dessert but it was kinda late for that...

We have been to MEX several times since it opened. While still very good, it has lost its edge; overall, not quite on top of their game as they were when first opened. The tacos seem smaller and the drinks less substantial. The front hostess station is not attentive and during this last visit, we were very much ignored while a party ahead of us was prepped & seated for an unexpected larger group. We were not even greeted with an apology that they’d be right with us - simply nothing, not even eye contact acknowledgement with a smile. The person who seemed to be the lead host was simply oblivious to the situation and should not be working that position. Our waitstaff was very good, except for taking a disproportionately long time to pick up our credit cards and then to bring them back. Will go back to MEX, but no longer as excited about it as we once were.

Waitress and kitchen and bar seemed swamped although not crowded in dining room. Ceviche, which is usually good had jalapeños in it, making it way too spicy. Took longer than 15 minutes after ordering to get beer and when brought to managers’s attention, he agreed... Mgr never offered to take anything off bill, which is a shame, as we used to like this neighborhood place!

Brought a cake & ice-cream, which they said they could do. However, the ice-cream was never put in the freezer and arrived at our table almost fully melted.

I want to love this place. Unfortunately, it is expensive for what it is in OK food and barely OK $12 cocktails. But the Service is consistently poor. Reservations still mean waiting 15 minutes, paying bill and leaving is another 15+ minutes, zero checks on his we are doing, drinks, or offer of dessert.

Same restaurant group does a nice job elsewhere. After four visits to this place, I’m done with it... not improving.

They kept the reservation and set up (party of 6) promptly. The restaurant is noisy very hard to carry on conversation even on a circular table.
Very limited offering for vegetarian.
Service for fair to poor. Admit that restaurant was full.
Waitress did not clarify additional charges for substitute and food did not arrive together.
Had to ask for side dish twice before she brought it over and when complained the answer was relatively rude and unacceptable.
I would not visit on weekend.

Been to Amex several times so understand it is pricey like most bham restaurants but this visit was disappointing. Carnitas platter took forever, came out with meat very dry and beans (not skinny beans as requested) were cold.
The place is cute and different but a disappointing.

MEX is a local hip restaurant. Friday night was very busy. Having reservation was essential and helpful.
We celebrated romentic dinner. We would have liked noise level moderate!

It was a Friday night but it was crazy loud. Our table of 4 couldn't hear each other speak. Service was terrible. Our server never came to check on us once, we had to flag her down just to get a second jug of water. She was kind enough but had the attitude of doing us a favor to take our order. The manager or someone came over to check on us eventually and I told him our issue with the server so he and another guy stepped in and took care of our needs, but by then we were finished. The food is good but expensive. Not sure if/when I'll be back.

I've been to this restaurant several times but would never go back again. The noise level was so high it was almost impossible to have a conversation with my dinner guests. There was an obnoxious party going on upstairs on a Friday night which terribly impacted the noise level of the entire restaurant. We respectively brought this to the management's attention and they could have cared less. You've lost a client when the manager doesn't care about the experience of their customers. What a waste of a Friday night.
