    Overall not great, food portions were extremely small for the price you paid, under seasoned and over cooked/ burnt meat. Drinks were average and not worth the price. So many other Mexican restaurants you could eat at for half the money with 10 times the amount of flavor: wouldn’t recommend.

    The food was good, but they did forget one of our entrees, and we had to wait a very long time for our server to check back in about drink refills and water refills. Will definitely try again though.

    Our service was our right terrible. Our food was delivered cold. Our water was refilled one time in the over 2 hour span we were there. Dishes were never removed from being stacked in front of me until our next course arrived. && even though we wanted dessert, we refused as we had been patient enough, spent a lot && our service was aweful.

    Had a hard time getting our server to come to our table much. It was a busy night. My enchiladas rojas were not as good as usual - chicken was very dry. I ate them anyway because I didn’t want to wait to get the attention of our server.

    This is not typical Americanized Mexican food. It is elevated Oaxacan-inpired cuisine that is true to its roots. Definitely unlike anything you'll find anywhere else in West Michigan and maybe in all of Michigan. Savory foods have a little fruit in them; sweet treats have surprise vegetables that absolutely work. I actually think the best things on the menu may be the simplest -- Mexo Guacamole, mushroom tacos, flan. But the more complex are worth a try, as well because it's not likely you'll find moles and cuitalcoche anywhere else around here.

    First visit to MeXo and will definitely return. Excellent service. Great menu. Plenty of interesting options, but not overwhelming. Hard to decide what to order and our server was helpful in that regard. Great MeXo Margarita--not too sweet and a little tart. Had chips and guac and Deconstructed Chicken Taco--very good, everything fresh. Also, MeXo has its own little parking lot which is a big plus downtown. Very good experience and will go again and try something else.

    Food was excellent with a diverse and unique menu. One in our group had celiac disease and there were a large number of menu items that were labeled gluten free to choose from including a gluten free dessert. We will definitely come back and recommend Mexo highly!

    Not your typical TexMex joint...the flavor inspirations for the meals come from all parts of Mexico and the preparation techniques are both ancient and modern! The cocktails, especially the Mezcal-inspired concoctions, are worth many visits as I have come back many times for lunch, brunch, and dinner. For lunch, I recommend the Torta de Ahogada (very authentic) as they make their bread on-site! Most of the time, I don't save room for dessert, but the last time I ate dinner, the Quatro Leches Cake called out to me!

    We always enjoy Mexo. The food is outstanding, the atmosphere is great, busy, but not to loud for conversation. This was our 5th or 6th time dining at Mexo, once again the food was excellent. Our service wasn't great this time, I imagine it was an abberation because normally the service is good. We waited several times for quite a period for our waiter (Nicholas) to come or return to our table. Also our food came out in the wrong order. We ordered an appertizer almost right away but we didn't get it until after our main entree's arrived. I guess overall, we enjoyed our night at Mexo, but I think better attention to the diners would be appreciated. We certainly will be going back and hopefully our experience next time is back up to the same standard as our previous visits.

    The margaritas hit the spot! That was my main reason for going. A group of four met for dinner before a show at St Cecelia's Music Center. The food was great. The server was very friendly and attentive. He asked if we were going across the street for a show and asked what time we would want to be out the door, on our way. I think we were only off of that mark by about five minutes.

    Another great meal at MeXo. Our server was very attentive and knew the menu very well and helped with recommendations. I was in the mood for seafood, I ended up going with the snapper that came out under a glass dome that was smoking (like a fine bourbon) the flavors were excellent with just the right amount of heat (not too spicy). My husband had the deconstructed tacos which are always a favorites. Margaritas are really good and not over the top expensive. We both said we need to visit more often as there are always new things to try on the menu. Oscar and his team do an excellent job with the authentic flavors of Mexico. We love MeXo!

    this was our 4th or 5th time eating at Mexo. Like all our previous visits our experience was great. Our table location was nice, not too much noise to converse easily, our server (Miranda?) was very good and once again the food was excellent. Appetizers, salads, entree's and dessert were all very good. The brisket and salmon entrees along with de-constructed tacos were very flavorful and the homemade tortillas are fantastic. We would definitely recommend Mexo.
