Contemporary Mexican
Jalisco Norte is a journey through Mexico without ever leaving the table. Executive Chef José Meza, who was born and raised in Mexico, takes diners on a culinary experience with his nostalgia for Mexican cuisine and expertise in some of the world’s top restaurants. From Martin Berasategui, a Michelin three-starred restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain to the best restaurant in the world, NOMA in Copenhagen, Denmark, Chef Meza has taken his learnings from each experience to create a truly unique dining experience for patrons here at Jalisco Norte. Meza’s dishes reflect Mexican heritage and tradition, while sticking to the philosophy of obtaining only the highest-quality ingredients and maintaining standards of high-end service required of the best restaurants. He draws inspiration from his family. During his travels through his home country from Oaxaca, Puebla and Yucatan, and from those towns, he crafted menu items that pay homage to its people, cultures and customs.

    When I made my reservation I asked for high top seating and I get there and I get standard seating, so my thing is why ask what would I prefer if it’s not going to be taken into consideration?also the food was brought out too fast which made me question the quality or if I got someone else’s order that they didn’t want.?

    Went for drinks and apps to celebrate my birthday, and ordered prosecco. It came out completely flat, so I requested a fresh glass. The second glass had carbonation, but was room temperature. The ceviche was mushy and lacked any fresh taste. However, our server was nice, and the space is beautiful.

    It is not what I expected… the place has no style, it looks like a chain restaurant, with armchairs attached to the walls, intense yellow lights, very loud folk music, there is no dress code, no age code, it is a Mexican food restaurant disguised as haute cuisine. The taste of the food is normal and the prices are not worth it.

    Honestly, it is the first time that I go to dinner in Jalisco, and I decided to spend my birthday there with my family, I am very grateful to Olimpia for her work and to everyone in the kitchen, because everything was in excellent condition and the taste of each meal was at its best. They have made my birthday one of the best! 🥂

    We were greeted with open arms! Our waitress Mayra was truly phenomenal!! Not only was she knowledgeable of the menu, she engaged with everyone at the table. Truly a great asset! Eric, the manager undeniably loves what he does. He made sure our table was taken care of and that my brother had the best birthday dinner. Carlos, was great at making conversation and assisting the table when needed. The bartender was quick at making our drinks and they were great. Last but not least the chef(s) did a fantastic job at accommodating a party of 10/10 Food was exceptional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This was my 5th trip to Jalisco Norte and the worst. So, please read this review from that perspective. We've liked it enough in the past to make it a go-to when wanting something a little elevated from tex-mex. Prior experiences have had wonderful service and food in an amazing space. NOT THIS TIME. There were 4 of us. My ceviche with a side of corn tortillas was amazing - just what I've come to expect. Two people ordered the chile relleno. One ordered my usual - the chicken mole enchiladas. The enchiladas and the chile rellenos were served lukewarm. Our server was curt and mostly absent - we kept asking the busboy for assistance (like the side of tortillas and refills on beverages). My husband was violently sick less than an hour after we got home. It'll be a LONG time before I can convince him to return, if ever.

    If you’re looking for legitimate [and delicious] Mexican food - you must try this hidden gem. 💎 I took a long-time friend there for a “reunion” and experienced First Class service from beginning to end. Mayra, our server was simply outstanding. 🎉 She was professional, personable and anticipated our every need - and did I mention, she handled my high-maintenance friend with patience and grace. 😉 We truly felt like we were family in her home. And last, but certainly not least🏆 - the manager, Wayne, was also superb. When we complimented Mayra - he was filled with pride and even spent a little time with us. They deserve raises for representing you so well AND a toast with your muy sabroso “Bring the Heat” margarita . 😉 🥂Salud to the both of you for making our first visit so very special!

    We never saw our server. Two tables sat after us and were greeted and given water, and had their orders taken before we could flag someone down. First person we were able to capture the attention of was the manager. We told him we hadn't been greeted yet and asked for water. He said he'd be right back with water. He never came back to our table. We got the attention of the bartender and he brought us water upon our request. He told us he wasn't our server but could take our orders in the meantime. The Bar got busy, but he made his way over a couple times to check on us and wound up checking us out when we were ready to leave. Of the 4 servers we saw working in our section, none acknowledged our table. The manager was at the host stand on our way out and said to come back and see us! We won't be returning. Thank you to the bartender who picked up the slack of his team and at least got us fed.

    After previously having several fun and delicious dinners at Jalisco Norte, we brought my mom for a birthday brunch. Our food was good not great, but the music in the dining area was so loud it was hard to even hear ourselves talk! I guess since we were a party of 8 and tip was built in, our waiter paid no attention to us. We barely saw him and ended up having a 2.5 hour brunch because service was so slow. We did not get an itemized bill that (probably) showed that tip was included - just handed a machine to run our cards. We were very disappointed and will not be back.

    I have been going to Jalisco Norte since they opened years ago. Jalisco recently changed their menu. Most of the favorites are no longer on there. The newer menu options were not nearly as good as the old one and they don’t allow for substitutions because everything is pre made. The chips were also stale and my long time favorite margarita tasted like battery acid. I am so disappointed with the changes at Jalisco. I will not be coming back any time soon.

    Arrived on time. Restaurant not busy. Seated immediately. Chips and Salsa arrived quickly. No wait staff came after 15 mins. Had to get a bottle of water from the water station. Waited a further 5 mins. Had to go to the hostess to ask for table service. Table service finally arrived with an insincere apology. At this point we opted to only order 2 items from the menu and for go trying several items due to the underwhelming experience. We felt unwelcome which was very disappointing. We were excited to try Jalisco but when you’re made to feel unwelcome it ruins entire experience.

    We had the pleasure of having own the best waiters one could ask for… Angel was outstanding at his profession, and we will definitely be dining again. The drink recommendations were fantastic. We had the “Izamal” and the “El Tequino”. Both of them were great, but if I had to chose one. It would be the “Izamal”.

    Food was bland, beer was served at room temperature. There were six people in our party- we ordered a variety of tacos and enchiladas and the consistent review was that there was little to no flavor and the portions were small.

    We went for a Saturday lunch & they sat us in the “treehouse” room. Love the ambiance- you really don’t feel like you’re eating in a shopping center. It feels modern but cozy. Our waiter Jesus was delightful. He was happy and helpful but not overbearing. The menu is very creative and we enjoyed everything we tried. I definitely recommend trying this great restaurant. We will be back.
