Margaritas were really good. Our server was excellent. Just didn’t find the food amazing. I would go back for drinks and appetizers.....

Obviously the people reviewing online giving 4 & 5 stars enjoy overpriced, bland food in dark surroundings where you need a flashlight to read the menu or they haven’t left Dallas ever in their life. Very average food and overpriced. Lots of people just wanting...More

Excellent service; extensive menu and wonderful appetizers. My main course was only OK. Chicken was very dry. The noise level is extremely loud. Overall, it was a nice experience and I would go back.More

The menu is quite extensive with unusual options to accommodate every palate. Tremendous combination of flavors permit a foodie to really explore and experience a very unique gourmet Mexican meal. Staff is very welcoming which enhances the experience.

Javier’s is consistently a great dining experience. Great staff, great atmosphere ... the food is consistent and excellent. After-dinner drinks in the cigar bar are a must.

It is a little pricey, but the flavors are there for sure! It’s basically high end Mexi food, but I’d recommend getting something you’d never find anywhere else. The menu is loaded with several options to do just that. The food is hard to explain....More

Probably, I saw a couple when I was there. I don't think they have a kid's menu though. Definitely would make a reservation.

No - the cigar Bar is essentially in an annex - a separate area of the restaurant where you have to go outside from the restaurant to get into the cigar bar section.
