    Food was great always enjoy the menu. I will say that we did get a lot of notification about the dress code which is a bit much bc you don’t hold everyone to it bc we saw people not in dress code.

    Beautiful restaurant with an exciting menu, but there are issues with everything including valet, service, and food. Our dining experience at The Mexican was not great. The restaurant isn't set up for valet parking. The valet situation is difficult because traffic cannot flow in and out of the space. The interior restaurant space is beautiful, however the temperature was too cold for every person in our party and the table next to us, making it physically uncomfortable to be in the restaurant and enjoy our meals. The music selection was nice, but they need a DJ that mixes or a musical director that can source good mixes that are appropriate for that scene. The restaurant wouldn't be so loud with sound dampening surfaces and a better sound system. The food was fine, but not great. The chips and salsa were good. The lobster elote was good, but not great, though it did have a decent amount of lobster in it. When the entrees arrived, the runner struggled to remove the appetizer dishes, then asked one of us to remove our flatware from the appetizer plate to reuse. -->Dishes should be cleared after each course, and flatware should be replaced before each course.<-- The entrees were good one of us had shrimp and scallops. The other had salmon. The salmon didn't have the best flavor, and the rice was unremarkable. The dessert was also not impressive. We ordered the chocolate cake, and it simply was more sweet than chocolatey. Leaving the restaurant was a disaster. The valet parking area, which is triangular with one entry/exit point was packed. It took 15 minutes to get the car. I asked the valet if he had change for a $20. He said sure. He ran over to the stand and came back with two $10 bills. I told him he knew he had more change than that. He gave a sheepish grin, indicating he knew I was right. In situations where valet parking is mandatory, change should be provided. When I got into the car and drove off, something was a bit off with my suspensio

    Wonderful food, the service was outstanding. Pretty loud, and the prices are ridiculous.

    Sadly the service did not match the expectation. Our table wobbled like a Cali quake… empty glasses/dishes remained on our table even after courses were dropped off… drinks took too long after ordering. The Campechana was delicious! Maybe our server was having an off night… but felt like the entire team was since the bartenders were also distant and irritated when trying to order a drink while we waited.. and it wasn’t even packed.

     The server took 30 minutes to take our appetizer order. Then it took another 30 minutes to get the appetizers and then another 45 minutes to get dinner when the dinner arrived. It was all cold and had to be sent back when I asked to speak to the manager he came in and never apologized For the mishaps. Just listen to the complaints. he had a poor attitude and was ambivalent about the service in the restaurant and the food quality. This was a horrible experience for my clients. I do not recommend.

    Very Pricey. Very nice restaurant, very nice ambiance, and I loved the valet service. But this is the 2nd time going here and I very effortlessly spent over $200 for 2 people,…. And we ate and drank the regular amount that we would’ve at any other restaurant.

    Upon entering the Mexican, the ambiance and decor is clearly from Monterrey, Mexico and it is clear to see the beauty of the restaurant. We were seated immediately, and the Wait Staff were friendly and engaging. They explained the different sauces from mild to hot that accompanied the tortilla strips. The variety of appetizers both Cold and Hot were plentiful. We had the Queso Fundido, a different take on queso and the Tostaditas, which were bite size tostadas. Both were delicious. As this was our first visit, we were encouraged to try the House Favorite of the Del Mar Enchilada Trio comprising of (Shrimp, King Crab and Lobster) as well as the Black Angus tacos, which were more in line with street tacos but very filling. If you are looking for rice and beans to accompany your entree, you come to the wrong place. No fillers needed here or wanted, the main dishes were extremely filling and no complaints from us. We will be back!!!!!
