    Very pretty bar and restaurant space. Fun margarita menu and great appetizers--guacamole and queso fundido were delicious. We had a nice room for a large party but the dining rooms looked like fun.

    Had a bday dinner and was completely satisfied with the food and service. Very upscale dining experience. The appetizers tried both cold and hot. The scallops and shrimp ceviche were very flavorful. For the fish tacos they should have offered grilled fish. They got the tacos with fried fish. I usually don’t do fired food. The tres leches was out of the world. Will definitely go here again.

    Our visit to “The Mexican” in Dallas was an unforgettable experience of luxury and flavor. The ambiance struck a perfect balance between elegance and comfort. Every dish we tried was a culinary masterpiece, combining traditional Mexican flavors with a modern twist, and the quality of ingredients was evident in each bite. The standout feature, however, was the drinks - each cocktail was a unique blend of creativity and classic taste. Service was top-notch; the staff was attentive and knowledgeable, enhancing our dining experience. In summary, “The Mexican” delivers an exceptional fusion of taste, ambiance, and service, making it a premier dining destination.

    Very good food but the service leaves much to be desired. The staff, while polite, are short and appear to be stretched thin. Be prepared to wait 45 minutes past your reservation time to be seated.

    This is a busy, overpriced Mexican restaurant. It has a pretty good vibe and decent cocktails and food, but for the price I’d much rather go to Javier’s. I felt a bit rushed during my dinner. Not only do they give you a time limit based on your party size, but the food appetizer was served seconds after we ordered and the main courses took about 7 minutes. Fantastic for lunch, but not for Friday night special occasion dinner with friends. Nothing was mediocre or bad besides the price.

    Took my friend here for her birthday and we had the best experience! Eduardo was our server and he was very knowledgeable and delightful !!! Every recommendation he had was absolutely amazing and he was able to accommodate our every need (not that we were too needy hopefully lol) but his genuine positivity made our night and definitely made this place my go to for all special occasions! Ps the salmon will be the best you’ve ever had in your life !!
