    I booked this well in advance and we were placed on the patio which was NOT the same experience as inside per our last visit. It was my birthday and this is where I chose based on my last experience . I would not again.

    My fiancé & I was celebrating her birthday and decided to check out one of the most recommended restaurants in Dallas. Our reservation was for 8pm on a Saturday & the establishment was pretty busy when we arrived. We were seated promptly upon arriving and Karen introduced herself as our server. Despite how busy it was, Karen not only gave us good recommendations, but she was also patient, composed, and provided great customer service throughout the evening. Drinks were some of the best we had while visiting and the food was delicious with generous portions. I rarely leave reviews on any platform but coming from a hospitality background on the Las Vegas strip, great customer service needs to be recognized in an industry that usually doesn’t get the credit it deserves. Cheers to Karen & the Mexican team. more life!

    I saw somewhere that The Mexican is on a list of the most beautiful restaurants in Dallas, and our anniversary was coming up, so I made a reservation there. We sat in the bar, which was the perfect place for us! It's beautiful in there! There's a DJ playing fun music, not too loud so you can't hear your dinner partner. The food was a 5 out of 5. We each had a steak and shared the potatoes. Then we ordered the Quatro Leches cake. This is my new favorite restaurant in Dallas!

    Could not have been more happy with the quality of the food that said could have been warmer or even hot as it was served medium. I had the chicken enchiladas. The Guac. was amazing and so was the young lad with really blond hair and short. Very nice. Also, our server said he would be the best server we've ever had at the beginning a bit too pompas not necessary to say. He was good but at one point getting our order he had us wait 15 minutes to order. Otherwise great experience. Larry Weinstein dinner was Monday night 6:30 pm 2/19

    From when we arrived, it seemed that neither the host nor the waiter wanted to be there. For the price point, it did not seem like a special occasion from a service point of view. I advised prior to arriving that this was for a birthday, but there was no recognition of it. The food was ok, but definitely not worth the price. The seats were visibly stained from prior guests, and I felt uncomfortable sitting in them knowing that they had dried food on them. They obviously did not enforce their dress code. There were also children playing on their iPaids with the sound blaring, ruining the environment for everyone in the main dining room. The drinks were very good though. For the price, it is not worth it. It is not a special occasion restaurant, and way over priced. I would return for drinks and an appetizer at the bar though.

    First time checking this place out and we will definitely be back…. Our server, Carlos, was exceptional and made great recommendations. We started with the Ahi Tuna Mexican and the flavor was spectacular. Plenty of Tuna and just the right amount of citrus… we then split the Milagro ribeye (med-rare) with the bone marrow side. Steak was cooked perfectly and the spices gave just the right amount of flavor and a hint of heat. The bone marrow was prepared perfectly as well and was one of the best I’ve had. We ended the night with the Quatros Leches cake and Chocolate Martini. The cake was so moist and the Liquor 43 cream added just the right taste. The Chocolate Martine was delicious and the Rumchata made it smoother and creamier. No doubt we will visit here again!!!

    This was the second outing for us. The first last year was memorable enough for a family birthday celebration that we returned with friends this year for another birthday celebration. But the event was tarnished by the fact that a birthday gift accidentally left was not found within 15 minutes of leaving the establishment and management being non-responsive. We do not plan on returning.

    Waiter should find another job. We were party of 3, business Dinner. Waiter suddenly told us we cant get anymore chips, kitchen throw them away for tonight. Thn after 10 min tells us kitchen closing we cant order main course. After arguing with him he got us the food. Thn for desert he told us kitchen closed. I had to call the manager to explain to him how horrible and bad this experience was. Only thn, he got us desert and coffee Food was tastless, chicken was very salty Drinks were done in a very bad way, the margaritas were like juices and the old fashioned like sugar juice. Tacos: street Tacos has better taste thn those tacos Staff/ waiter not trained at all Drinks were done in a very bad way Staff/ waiter not trained at all Whole experience was very bad: not worth the money spent at all It is like getting cheap labor to work in a wannabe luxury place: you can never fake it and act as classy, if all your staff are cheap by nature Place not recommended

    The food was great, the drinks were amazing. The only thing I would say was the service was very slow. Waited over 20 mins for drinks
