Food is okay, nothing special. Great atmosphere and good service. Nice bar and outside dining area. Excellent specialty drinks and good people watching.

Outdoor "alfresco" dining with margaritas is the perfect Sunday brunch. Queso is to die for! A little pricey but worth it.

I recently read this location is closing. I'm not surprised. I found Javier ' s to be pretentious - not "upscale" in a good way. Also, prices are way to high. Try Cheesecake Factory or PF Changs instead.

A good high end Mexican restaurant. A little pricey but the food and service were very good. The shellfish seafood trio was excellent. The house specialty margarita was also excellent. Nice alfresco dining areas.

We visit this place often so I can say I have friend plenty of their menus options.....Food is fusion Mexican . Drinks are delicious (margarita) but pretty pricey to enjoy every week. Wish they had happy hour for drinks :-)

Beautiful, large restaurant with many seating options, patio & indoor. Friendly, knowledgeable waitstaff, brought sauce samples for me to try for heat (spicy) levels. Margaritas were exceptional, large menu selection, addictive chips, salsa & Guacamole. All entrees were delicious, will return & highly recommend.

Very popular restaraunt! Get reservations as this can get very crowded for lunch or dinner. Everything I have tried has been delicious. I usually get one of the chicken salads for lunch. Always good!
