Amazing green salsa – It is pricey but worth it. Their margaritas are amazing and their green salsa is unbelievably good.
Excellent High End Mexican Food! – To start, I highly recommend you make reservations, even midweek after 9pm, the place is typically hopping. The service is excellent and the food is even better. If you're going to have the ceviche, plan on going earlier in the evening or you may risk them being out. The black bean is also excellent. Never been disappointed with an entree here. If you're unsure about what to get, feel free to ask the waiter for his recommendation...they will lead you in the right direction. Highly recommended!

Great Food & Staff. – This is one of the best restaurants in Dallas especially for couples. The food is and atmosphere are awesome. Our waiter was great his name was Noe. If you get a chance to go you should defenitely ask for him.
A New Favorite Place for Mexican – When I first moved to Dallas a few months ago, I was surprised to find that people had a hard time recommending a good Mexican restaurant. Most recommendations turned out to be little more than your run-of-the-mill tex-mex. I found solace in the taco stands, but had trouble finding a good, sit-down, real Mexican place. But then I found Javier's. This place is great! True Mexican dishes prepared with integrity and celebration for the cuisine. Everything I tried here (filete Azteca (steak), codorniz (quail), guacamole, and margaritas) was perfect. Sharp, dried chili tastes combined with ornamental spices and sometimes rounded out with fruitiness over veggies or falling-off-the-bone tender meats made every mouthful a subject for rewarding contemplation.
Service was excellent. Atmosphere is a little eccentric, but very comfortable and great for any occasion. Location is easy; just stick with the free valet. Price is a little high for me to go all that frequently, but it's not out of reach for a young professional either.
In short, this place immediately became a new favorite, and I will be back soon!
unique but... – I give it a 3 1/2 actually. :) Don't let them seat you near the hostess' desk. You will truly miss out on the atmosphere. Make sure you are further inside the restaurant. Unique place, worth a visit. We were suprised by the portion sizes compared to the prices! Also, I thought Texas - big everything! Rice is a tacky little scoop. Food was good, not fabulous, but good. Service was friendly. I think it would be fabulous to anyone not from the southwest or western parts of the good old USA!
CHARMING ROMANTIC AMBIANCE, GREAT FOOD – I was taken here on a first date and was swept off my feet. The atmosphere is old world and romantic. The margaritas delicious and the service was impeccable. My date ordered Filet Cantinflas and I ordered the Snapper with garlic and lemon sauce. Both entrees were delicious. The hot sauce served at the table was excellent as well. The best part of the evening however was venturing back to the Cigar bar for an after dinner drink.
Discrimination – We had some friends who were recently discriminated against because they are gay. Considering that this is the Knox Henderson area which has always been extremely gay friendly, I find this sort of behavior by management deplorable. A packed bar and our friends spent a total of $400 on a couple rounds of drinks for themselves and 14 friends while waiting to be seated. They were asked to leave when one person sat on the his partners leg while he was sitting down because there was no room to sit. Keep in mind that they were sitting by the restrooms and almost completely out of the view of the rest of the restaurant. There was no inappropriate behavior. They were told that their behavior would not be tolerated and they were asked to leave. When they tried to pass out the valet tickets to their guest and tell them that they were being forced to leave, this was looked upon as being aggressive so an off duty police officer was called to escort them out.
I can't believe that this sort of behavior from restaurant management is still tolerated in this day and age. I will never step food in this restaurant until our friends receive a formal apology and the manager is reprimanded. We'll do everything in our power to make sure that more and more people know about the discrimination practices of this establishment.
Trust me. If it were a women leaning on the leg of another man, this would never have happened.
Conflicted – I was looking forward to the experience of dining at Javier's to celebrate a momentous occassion in my life. We made reservations but when we called the hostess stated if we came earlier then they would prioritize us and seat us soon as possible, most likely in about 30 mins after we arrived. We did arrive about 1 1/2 hrs earlier and checked in with the hostess. Others also arrived after us without reservations and were seated within 30 mins, before us. We waited for about 1 hr until we were finally seated. We weren't greeted by anyone, like other patrons. One of the staff (maybe manager/owner) greeted a couple next to us and made small talk, asked if they wanted anything to drink; and he completely ignored us. We weren't dressed differently or act differently than other patrons. But we were different because are people of color and young. We were the only people of color there except for the staff. I dislike acknowledging racial discrimination as an issue because I wish it did not exist, but that is not reality. Our waiter was attentive, professional, but not overbearing. The food was delicious. The decor did have the old world charm. But being treated differently in a negative manner left a bad taste in my mouth...
Tight quarters, Great Cigar Lounge – I had the opportunity to have gathering at Javier's on a Friday night. I have heard of Javier's for a number of years so by the time I got there, a palace would have been "just average". I was very impressive to drive up and see ultra high-end sports cars, but I have to say that the dinning experience when gradually down from there. My party of 15 and I were seated in the back of one of the many dinning rooms. The service was very short and quick to get us out of the chair. The table was with in a foot of other tables which made being excused from the table an act of congress. It seemed the table enjoyed the food but it was nothing that the reviews gave it. I have to say that the cigar lounge was the high light of the night! I am sure Javier's is a wonderful place for small dining parties or after work cocktails, but unless you can get a private room, it is no place for a large group setting.
Pros: A bar in every room, Wonderful cigar lounge, ritzy feeling
Cons: Loud, seating is tight, service is pushy
