My understanding of Mexique is it's a French twist on Mexican cuisine. Don't go there expecting the typical taco, enchilada, fajita fare of most Mexican restaurans. The food was fabulous! The short ribs are out if this world. Great service tops off the evening.

This is a wonderful, fine dining place with a casual un-stuffy vibe. We chose the tasting menu, with our wives opting for sangria while my son and I did the wine pairing. Wonderful tastes in 6 courses. Brief descriptions don't do the food justice....each has...More

Went to Mexique after reading reviews in Trip Advisor. We had to Uber it there as it is not in the downtown area. It was well worth the trip! This is a small place and there were 4 of us in our party. Each couple...More
