Always a favorite when I am in town. I got the Mexican independence day specials, something new is on the menu every time I go. You have to get the Oaxacan margarita, the smoky-sweet combo is addictive, to say the least.
I truly feel that this is one of the best values in the area. The Salmon de la Veracruzana is one of the best meals in our area. The Tamarindo cocktail is absolutely one of very favorites. The wait staff (props to Nadi- she remembered allll of our favs from last time!) is dynamic. We always eat outside on the patio; they were responsive when we changed the # of our party. It is just fabulous.
Boring environment and food in my opinion. Nice staff and servers though.
Enjoyed this modern touch to the classic pre-Hispanic food of Mexico. Fresh, creative and delicious cuisine, solid service and a pleasant atmosphere.
We sat outside for a 7pm outside reservation. The restaurant was not busy, yet the service was quite slow. The food and drinks were mediocre for the price.
Shortened menu because of pandemic panic. Food was good, but margaritas were so-so. Will be returning when things open up again. Look forward to having them open for lunch and during the week.
We are SO glad.that they have now opened their outdoor dining. We couldn't wait to go back after a longggg hiatus. The Tamarindo cocktail is just AWESOME & the salmon entree is not only a great value, it is one of the BEST meals in Grand Rapids MI. Homemade gauc should not be missed, either.
Had a great experience we met the chef Oscar the food was amazing even tho for now with COVID they minimize the selection of the menu. Otherwise the staff was very pleasant and they’re very attentive. Drinks were amazing 😉 also. Very clean as well.
The menu was way more limited than we were used to but understandable with covid changing things. The carne asada was FANTASTIC as well as the cocktails. Mexo is easily my favorite restaurant in GR. So much detail in each dish, beverage, and the atmosphere. Chef Oscar and crew are amazing!
Great Margaritas and Upscale Mexican Dining. Due to social distancing, the main dining room is very quiet and the bar area is closed for seating.
Limited menu but great food
Love your space with room between tables, excellent service, free on site parking and ability to accommodate large groups. Fabulous flavors in the foods. Music was a little loud.
Wrong time for my reservation, 11 on a Saturday not the best but they made the most of it and very satisfyingly have us great food and drinks. Thanks !
We always enjoy MeXo, especially the appetizer selections. In fact, this time our guests liked the apps so much, we ordered more as dinner. Great place!
Romantic, calm vibe. Tastefully decorated, friendly wait staff. Tables are close to each other without feeling cramped. Cocktails are magical, food has depth and character.
Excellent overall. Reminds me a bit of frontera grill in Chicago.
This was our second time. We loved it so much the first time we had to come back and bring family and friends. It was, however, Valentine’s Day weekend. Our reservation was at 6:15. We did not leave until 9:15. Our server was amazingly friendly but the service from the bar and kitchen was exceedingly slow. It just didn’t make sense. So, I’m would like to eat here again but the slow service really has dissuaded me. We cannot have another 3 hour meal. I will say this: the food was outstanding! Truly outstanding.
We really enjoyed the different experience that MeXo provided, things tasted great and the cocktails were amazing but the pricing was just too high. It's frustrating when things are costly and the portions are small. The chips were not homemade and the guac didn't seem to be sourced with very fresh/flavorful avocados. I would go back for happy hour or lunch, but not full-priced dinner.
There was live music so it was a little difficult to talk amongst our group of 8. Food was good, a few things were cold unfortunately. Definitely will go back. Love the restaurant and the margaritas.
Our server, Justin, was a treat. I had the Pollo Con Mole Pipian this time. It was good, but I didn't like it as much as the Salmon Veracruzana, which I had during a previous visit. The cocktails, as always, were quite nice. The Chef's Choice guac was worth the extra cost. I want to make it back for the Prehispanic Chef Dinner at some point.
Amazingly delicious!!! The food was amazing and the servers were very knowledgeable and courteous.
Oscar and his team at Mexo were outstanding! The food was incredible and so was the service!
Great menu and the staff is very attentive. Great meal!!
Wonderful food and service. Highly recommend MeXo. First time, we will be back soon
Our server, Justin, was amazing. He was super knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly.
This is the best restaurant in GR. Unique food. Very tasty and well balanced in flavors. Service was very good. If you haven’t been, you have to try it.
Service was great and the food was outstanding, especially the salmon! It as a full house and it was a little noisy but a packed house means they are definitely doing a number of things right.
Not your typical Mexican restaurant - no tacos or burritos here. However, the food was very tasty and unique. I would recommend if you are looking for unique menu items.
Due to worsening weather, we called and asked if we could have our reservation bumped up, and they were happy to accommodate. The food and drinks we ordered were excellent and the service was quick. There were a few appetizer options for vegetarians but only one main course option available.
Excellent upscale Mexican cuisine. Nice mezcal list. Very helpful, friendly service. As good as that fancy Rick Bayless restaurant in Chicago, only not quite as pricey.
Our server was very knowledgeable and on top of it! The guacamole was fantastic! I had the pork belly and my husband had the seafood stone soup which he loved. It was great!
We loved everything about our first time at MeXo including our server and chef Oscar came to our table to tell us about the menu. Great experience and we can’t wait to take other friends!
This has become one of my favorite restaurants in the area! Their food is authentic and quite phenomenal!
Great date night! Would visit again!
Our second time there. The food was again outstanding! I had the salmon, she had fish tacos. We were passing bites and arguing who made the better choice. The staff was friendly and fast. The Bartender (didn't catch her name) came out to help me make Mezcal selection. She asked what I like in scotch or whiskey, then picked out the perfect mezcal, it was really good!
The menu scared me at first but it was phenomenal! All 4 of us were very pleased with all elements of our visit. Food, service and drinks were all great! Will return.
The restaurant ambiance is nice but a bit hollow--it could be warmed up a bit. Service was very good. The food selection could use some additions. My meal--the brisket was quite fatty. The food presentation could also use some touches to strengthen the presentation.
Overall not a great experience. Food was barely mediocre (had steak deconstructed tacos and the meat was like chewing bubblegum) margaritas were good but 3/4 ice, queso was delicious and so was the guacamole. Service was fine but not great and it was not because they were busy with other tables. Will not return.
Not your typical Mexican fare. Chef goes beyond the expected and really uses the best ingredients when creating authentic dishes of ancient Mexico. The drinks are amazing as well. I think they could use some lighting tips from a professional to create a better ambience.
