Came here for a date night. It was pretty packed but I liked the decor and the whole vibe of the place. I had the shrimp and crab enchiladas which was delicious. Make sure to ask for the habanera salsa..it's spicy kicks in after.

This place was recommended to us by 3 different people, so it was pretty clear we needed to try it. They also suggested we get reservations or we would have a 1-2 hour wait on the weekend. I'm glad we made reservations - this place it hot! I'm also thankful for valet parking - it just makes it easier. It... More

We met family and friends at Javier's for dinner on Monday night and was pleasantly surprised. The decor was very innovative and we were seated on the patio so we could view the sunset. My brother called the decor, "swank", as he compared to the Mexican restaurants in his Pasadena 'hood. I had the Tampiqueño dinner and I was pleasantly... More

Our group of five ladies enjoyed a wonderful lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Part of the charm of this location is the people watching. The food is very good too and the location can't be beat! Time flies when you are enjoying your surroundings this much! The prices are reasonable for the quality, but with drinks, it can quickly add... More

Really good food. I had the Enchiladas, could hardly eat it all. Plenty to choose from on the menu. Service was good. This is a loud restaurant though, lots of places to sit.

Great variety and well presented Mexican food options; all delicious. Fairly expensive. Make reservations, especially on weekends. Valet parking expensive but free parking in adjacent mall parking lot. Large lounge area acts as ante-room to restaurant -- really loud. Judging by the cars, a very upscale crowd. Saw lots of families with kids.
