    This is a prime case of trying too hard. Some examples - the Caesar salad was swimming in dressing. It was basically inedible. The cocktails were expensive ($18-$22) and had no balance, mostly too sweet. We got the Llorona and Mole Old fashioned. The old fashioned tasted like syrup. Dinner - the $19 guacamole was a tiny maybe 1/2 cup serving. Same for the hamachi crudo; our friend was told it was a Main sized portion, more like 6 tiny bites. The Mole Filet was served doused in a not particularly tasty mole sauce. Best to avoid the sauce altogether.

    The finish out is beautiful but the service and food don't stand up. The servers all seemed new and inexperienced. Very pleasant but not confident or timely. The food was such a disappointment! The shrimp ceviche was pretty decent but very pricey for the portion and dish overall Tomatoes and burrata were just basic Half catch of the day was a little mushy and the sides (plantains, plaintain puree and black beans were all room temp) Cabbage side was decent but nothing special. The sauce sounded great but wasn't fully developed. Perhaps the most disappointing item was the bone in ribeye. Under seasoned and room temp. We didn't wait long for food but it felt like most of the food was sitting before it was served. I wanted to like this new spot but it just fell short in too many ways.

    The ceviche and mole steak were l really good but the stuff pepper was v bad and we had to drench in lemon and salsa to take away the bitterness. We asked staff for salsa a few times and that was kind of hard to get (it was also bland).

    Food was tasty and restaurant has a lot of potential. No complaints, but I expect service, plating, and portion sizes to smooth out as restaurant matures. Llorona margarita, oysters snapper and Abuela’s flan were especially good.

    Good food, but had very poor service. Forgot a dish, and our server barely acknowledged us throughout the evening and didn’t seem apologetic about any of it. Maybe they’re still working out the kinks.

    Everything about Mexta was perfect! The restuarant itself is beautiful. All the presentations of drinks, appetizers, and entrees were great. The steaks were all cooked to perfection, lobster bisque was delicious, and the sorbet trio was really the cherry on top of the whole experience. I will definitely be recommending Mexta and going back!

    Gorgeous restaurant. Food was delicious, drinks on point. Service was fantastic. Our waitress Abbey was amazing. She gave us samples of sauces to taste test before making our entree choice. Per Abbey's suggestion, the Italian cheesecake was incredible...well worth the 20 minute wait.

    I ordered a bottle of champagne and it was delivered room temperature and when the waitress opened it, it spilled all over the floor, and there were no apologies or credits for the lost wine. the ice bucket came without a napkin and the server never poured an ounce of the wine after that.

    Overall, a great experience, we left satisfied. Highlights: Tetela and Red Snapper Ceviche - must try! Service was outstanding. Great atmosphere, unique and fun. Good: Slow Cooked Pork Belly - needed a touch of salt or acidity. Mole Old Fashioned - it was good, nothing special. Other cocktails El Capitolio and Sin Fronteras were better than average, but not memorable. Chocomaíz dessert - it was a decent ending to the meal. Lowlgiht: ¿Margarita? Our server highly recommended this drink. It was described in the menu as a refreshing and bubbling Margarita... it was flat and uninteresting. The champagne used had clearly been open for a while on gone stale/flat. I wish it had more smokey notes from the Mezcal. I absolutely would eat here again, but would probably stick to beer/wine as none of the four cocktails we had were worth the price.

    We celebrated my daughter's 21st birthday at Mexta, and it was fantastic. Haylee, the manager, ensured everything was perfect. The food was exceptional, with flavorful Mexican dishes like guacamole and carne asada tacos. The cocktails were creative, especially the spicy mango margarita. Haylee and her team provided impeccable service, making us feel like valued guests throughout the evening. The ambiance was lively and intimate, perfect for a special occasion. Overall, Mexta delivered an outstanding experience with delicious food, inventive drinks, and stellar service. Highly recommended for any celebration or enjoyable dining experience.

    Decidedly mixed experience. While the sauces were interesting, the portions were small and the preparation was hit-or-miss. Guacamole was quite good, the Brussel sprouts were mushy and uninteresting. The cabbage sounded compelling but was decidedly blah. The hamachi was tasty, but also unexpectedly heavy in its preparation, a surprise for a ceviche. The service was friendly but a little sparse. Combine all that with stout prices, and the experience left us disappointed.

    Fabulous addition to the Austin food scene! Raves from our table of six include the guacamole, ceviche (both the snapper and shrimp), shrimp tacos, Wagyu filet with black mole, esquites, the chocolate dessert, and the rice pudding. Didn’t love the brussel sprouts. Creative cocktails! Friendly and professional servers, timing out of kitchen was great, plating attractive.

    Guacamole with the salsa add on was delicious. As was the stuffed poblano pepper. Very flavorful. Enjoyed the charred cabbage, but was tough to slice thru. It was a wedge, good portion in a yummy sauce. Had to request a steak knife to cut into bite size portions. Very thoughtful good cocktail list. Enjoyed the Margarita(?): that’s the actual name. The Italian Prosecco for $8/glass was more my price point. Passed on dessert. Too full. Service was attentive, well trained staff. Glad to see this downtown gem is now open. Will visit again soon!

Drinks are amazing just take a little longer to prepare but I dont mind waiting for a good drink The food is presented well. What I expected from this caliber of chef team but my only complain is please let the chef taste the food. It needed a little salt. I didn’t like my buratta salad mainly because it was served with fish? I would not put cheese and fish on the same plate in that preparation. Overall, it seems like a good place for hang out and have drinks and apps And yes the deserts are amazing!

    Though a new restaurant, they really have it together. Excellent service and the food is terrific. Very upscale so s lit pricy, but worth every penny. I suspect it will eventually receive lots of awards.

    We had the roast chicken and the pork belly. The sauces on each entree were excellent. Service of drinks was somewhat slow which may be caused by lack of personnel. The noise level is high because of the lower ceiling and material used. The staff was very pleasant and attentive.

    I was so impressed with Mexta from the moment I walked in. The atmosphere feels authentic, fun, and the service was incredible. The drinks are unique and delicious, including a bacon-washed tequila drink. The food was also surprisingly delightful and authentic. I ordered a steak and was very impressed - might be the best steak I’ve had in Austin! Highly recommend.

    Great service and space. There is music but it’s not so loud you can’t hear everyone speaking (pet peeve of mine). Cocktails are inventive and unique. Overall, everything we had was delicious. Best bites of the night: Guacamole with pork belly and 4 salsas, hamachi tiradito, Mexta esquites, fresh made cheesecake We also tried the Macha Cauliflower, Denver Steak with Mole, pork belly with peanut sauce, and the chocolate dessert. All great— in the future would choose a different cut of steak and just add molé to it. Least favorite thing (but still pretty good honestly) was the roasted cabbage side. The hazelnut sauce was really interesting and tasty, just would have preferred the cabbage to be a little softer. All and all definitely a win and welcome addition to downtown Austin

    Given the press about the restaurant our expectations were high. Unfortunately, they were not met. The waiter was totally not up to the task. He didn't even know what some of the items were on the menu. He had to go ask. His excuse was that he was new. Our appetizers and cocktails were okay-thankfully they were not overpriced. The entrees were one amazing and one average. They served a puree and beans without a spoon. How are you suppose to eat beans with a fork? Finally, we ordered the cheese cake special-it takes 20 minutes to cook. It came out runny-liquid in the middle and the waiter had to get someone else to judge it. It was definitely under cooked and at first they tried to convince us this was the way it was suppose to be. Fortunately, once they looked closer they agreed. They brought another dessert and comped it but it was not great. Hopefully, they will get their act together and the saving grace is that it has a great atmosphere and the prices are not excessive.
