They serve excellent food & drinks. The service is great. But this is one of those, I remember when complaints. So, I remember when you didn't have to get all dolled up to enjoy this place. I still come here and I still enjoy the food, I just preferred it when it was more Laguna and less Newport - Sorry!

We have been coming to our Marriott time share here is Newport Beach for over ten years and always look forward to a meal or two at Javier’s. Even the night before Mother’s Day as packed as it was the service from the valet, the quality and consistency of the food from the kitchen and the manager stopped at each... More

A group of 17 visited here and they were able to accommodate us all on one table (we did Pre book) . The restaurant looks great the moment you pull up and then we were welcomed and shown to our table. The menu is huge and although we didn't know what a lot of the food was the staff were... More

Javier's offers outstanding Mexican food coupled with excellent service. Menu is varied and extensive, so everyone is sure to find something that suits their tastes. This is not your average neighborhood Mexican eatery. Javier's is fine dining in a lovely setting, and is priced accordingly, so prepared to break out the wallet. There are definitely less expensive Mexican restaurants in... More

Great Mexican food. A very popular place the fills up fast. I wasn't happy with the reservation process. We had them for 7 but we're told we had to wait an hour for the main room. Instead we sat in the side room rather than wait. That being said the service was great and very good food plates

Sexy people, Lambo's, Bentley's, Range Rovers and beautiful people at this casual but upscale family owned Mexican restaurant. The bar scene is high energy and a combo of sexy and sports bar. Food isn't cheap but it's delicious! The waiters have been with Javier for years and create a fun, high energy restaurant where I've always felt it is like... More

This restaurant features "high end" (high priced) Mexican food. The restaurant is located in Newport Coast and accordingly, has Newport Coast prices. The bar area is crowded and noisy. However the dining areas have a more tolerable noise level. The food is "not bad", although one person in our party had her chicken undercooked. I would recommend reservations if you... More
