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.

    I had an POOR OVERALL experience that had EVERYTHING to do the managers Agustin. But nothing to do with the staff or food. I am honestly surprised that Agustin is in his postition as manager he has poor delivery when it comes to customer service. I reserved a table online in ample time, upon arrival 50% of my party was ready to sit at the table we reserved, but Agustin directed Valtina (hostess) to interject and deny us our table until 9 of our 10 guest appeared. Then when speaking to him, he was rude, arrogant, i honestly felt like a nuisance in the restaurant when instead i should’ve felt welcome, he told me: well you can sit at your table when we have 7-8 ppl here. Mind you, i was in heels carrying a 2 year old sleeping baby, simply wanted to have a seat while we awaited the rest. I ended up having better service thanks to the waiters: abraham and luis - valentina was suuuuper amazing as well and asked us to please forgive her mgr for his delivery. Had it not been for the amazing food and valentina, abraham and luis i would have dined here with my family. We spent over $500 on the food and enjoyed it very much. But the bitter/sour taste of your Manager Agustin remains. I will associate his negativity in my thoughts when i think about Jalisco Norte

    First time at Jalisco and thoroughly enjoyed it! Great service and authentic Mexican food. Specialty margarita & the watermelon-tini were refreshing cocktails. My wife had the shrimp & I had the carne asada. Both delicious. Will definitely return.

    We were so excited to have brunch for my husbands birthday but clearly we weren’t the type of people this restaurant like to cater to. Service was slow and things got mixed up from the drinks and food to the separate checks we needed. I had better expectations since a friend recommended the place. We were there for 3 hours due to how slow the service was, our plan to to be out in less than 2 hours because we had planned our day.

    The food was unique and authentic in taste. The decor was clean and vibrant. The service was kind, hospitable, and attentive. The noise level was extremely loud. The music was elevated to a point where it thundered more like a night club at 12 midnight than 12 noon. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their conversations up to the point when the staff decided to crank the music up to a point that you almost had to shout to be heard across a table.

    Been here a handful of times. Each time the food/experience is either great and I'm left asking myself "why do I not come here more often?" Or it's just an overall let down. This last experience was mostly a letdown. Sever was on top of it until he abandoned the table mid-way through the meal. Guacamole was $14 of smashed avocado with a bunch of garnish, maybe some salt? No citrus, onion, cilantro, or anything to give it depth of flavor or qualify it as guacamole. "Smoked cauliflower" was extremely bland. Undercooked. Not smoked, rather, boiled. Dropped in a puddle of sauce in a bowl and more garnish. It was very disappointing. The seared scallops were very good for what it was. You're allotted 4-5 medium scallops, some asparagus chunks, a select variety of sauce puddles, and of course...more garnish. There is a lot of prep-work going into this plate, I personally feel the portion is more appropriate for a 1-2 person appetizer. I guess the inconsistency is my issue here. I've had some street tacos and they've blown me away. Their sweet potato puree is incredible. Barbacoa one day amazing, another day sticky salt lick mush. It's a roll of the dice here which is too bad, their menu is different and changes frequently enough to keep it compelling. But it's not a place I'd bring a client.

    We were quickly seated, received very stale chips. Figured I wouldn’t complain just order appetizers to get us started. After our server took our order for appetizers an ice tea and lemonade, we waiting 12 minutes but our server never came back to our table with drinks, in my opinion that’s is too long to wait for min alcoholic beverages so we went to La Ventana. Was very disappointed, I had been before and had such an awesome experience, brought a friend from out of town to dine.

    Overall my group and I were not impressed with Jalisco, that was primarily a product of having a poor server. Our server had no personality, couldn’t make menu recommendations and forgot items that were ordered. Because she didn’t write anything down a few people in our group had their orders wrong. Additionally items that were supposed to come with rice and beans on the side didn’t. The music in the restaurant was also too loud to be able to hear people sitting directly across from you. The food was tasty, but portions were small for the price paid. Overall we left Jalisco underwhelmed and likely won’t return.

    The “beef Suadero- brisket tacos” were horrible. So bland, and the meat looked liked it had been boiled, and came out a pasty white color. The waitress said that the cut of meat looked like that, but when I google “beef suadero” it looked like beef, not whatever was served. The carnitas tacos were fine, wouldn’t dine again. Also got an email from open table saying “we missed you at Jalisco Norte.” So they didn’t even mark me as present when I showed up causing me to call and explain that I didn’t miss my reservation. Wish I had taken photos of the “beef” dish.

    Eight of us, rowdy and maybe too loud, mostly Texans trying this place out for the first time, and we all LOVED it. Had the big table near the windows, gorgeous views of trees. Happy hour was amazing, and we ordered off the dinner menu, too. Service was excellent, drinks and food all tasty. Perfect place to meet - central with easy free parking. We will be back! And try more of this great menu.

    Service was terribly slow (2 1/2 hours for lunch @ 1:15 reservation!). They took our appetizer plates away before we finished. The food was greasy. Our friend, who IS a chef that was with us, went to the kitchen to talk to the chef about how the food was cold, overcooked and greasy. Yet the bill came at full price! Embarrassing as I was hosting the event. NO!NO!NO! The only reason it got a stars was that we were starving and actually EVENTUALLY ate food.
