I ate at three different Latin-esque cuisine restaurants while visiting Dallas - Mesomoro, Gloria's and Miriams. My food and experience at Miriams was the bottom ranked of all three by far. Service was terrible - we ordered margaritas when we sat down and didn't get them until after we were done with our appetizers. I had guacamole at all three restaurants - this was my least favorite guacamole of all. Annnd the mahi mahi fish tacos had zero flavor. Thankfully I had an order of elote to dump on them to give them some semblance of flavor. Super super super loud inside, sit outside if you are going here. Would not recommend though, so many better places to eat.

The food is far from being TexMex and more original Mexican authentic food.
That is the reason we picked this place.
They have choices you can get your TexMex on if you have to but that's like going to A really nice steak restaurant and getting a burger.
Thier Salmon and street tacos are too die for.

Busier than expected but there was a party of 150 people so maybe the chaos was to be expected. First time out in 580 days, and it was worth it. This is my go to restaurant pre theater and pre concert. Food was great. Service a little chaotic due to big crown, but we were in and out in plenty of time to get to the show.
Will be back!

Food a bit bland. I ordered the salmon entree which was supposed to have some type of coconut sauce on top. The coconut flavor was imperceptible. It was extremely loud with 2 different large parties essentially yelling throughout their stay. It was difficult to speak across our table and hear each other. It was just ok.

We dined outside on a perfect evening. The hostess was so welcoming and pleasant. The waiter, Juan was outstanding. We had the enchiladas, duo verde, and brisket tacos. All of the dishes were flavorful and delicious. We appreciated the complimentary valet nearby and beautiful plants lining their outdoor area. This is now one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Dallas.

My wife and I were staying at the Ritz-Carlton and walked over here for dinner. It was hopping! The food was great! They started us off with chips and a trio of salsas that were all good. We got some queso verde as well which we enjoyed. My wife got enchiladas and I had spicy shrimp tacos that had a spicy aioli sauce on them that was amazing! We will definitely be back.

Everything was on point. The food is upscale from the typical Texmex restaurants in Dallas. I appreciated all of the salsa options and the smaller dinner portions. Our server was there to check on us regularly. The chile rellano was delicious. Be sure to request the habanero salsa.

Ate here before a concert at the American Airlines Center. Staff was great! Loved our food too - we got the mahi mahi (soooo good) and brisket tacos. It’s not inexpensive (but not super pricey), but I would definitely eat here again!

HORRIBLE experience! I sent my food back because I didn’t like it. I order four tacos. I ate one (after wiping the hot sauce off of it and added queso instead) took one bite out of two others and didn’t even touch the third. I asked for empanadas instead. I was approached, at our table, by who I thought was the manager but was really the owner in such a nasty way! She told me that I had my plate for half an hour (which I did not). I told her I did not like the tacos and ordered something else instead.

She told me that I was not going to like the empanadas since I didn’t like the tacos (which are two different things) She pretty much argued with me that I wouldn’t like it. So I said well bring me the taco that I ate but add queso because I didn’t like the sauce that was on it. She said she’d have to charge me for it. At this point I was over it and lost my appetite. She brought me the DRY tacos back to the table and stared at me the whole time she was at the hostess stand. It was embarrassing and uncomfortable because others were looking at us as this was going on.

It was never a “I’m sorry you didn’t like it. What can I do to make it better for you” or anything like that! It was as if it was MY fault that I didn’t like the meal.

The waiter never came back to check on us after that until it was time for the check.

As I was leaving I told her that I did not appreciate how she approached me and I would not be returning. She said “aww okay”

We gave them no reason to be treated that way. My husband and I were on a date in our own little world and she AND the waiter ruined our first and last experience at this restaurant.
