    We’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for quite some time and we finally did. The service from A-Z was impeccable. The food quality and portions were excellent. Our server provided suggestions for us and everything he suggested was amazing. Best fine dining Mexican restaurant I’ve ever been to! The bill was high but omg, so worth it.

    Overall it was a nice dining experience. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Some of the dishes/ apps we had were tasty and reasonably priced but the empanadas were not worth it IMO. This is definitely a more special occasion dining experience ($$$$). The music is very upbeat and a notch or two too loud.

    I love trying new places and look forward to seeing what makes each place a unique dining experience. The overall decor of Javiers is what you’re paying for. The food was over priced, not very flavorful and our server seemed as if he wanted us to hurry up and order. We started with appetizers and quickly decided we wanted to cut our loses and asked for the check. A (1) chicken quesidilla, (3) shrimp and cheese empanadas and (2) lobster enchiladas for $159.73. There wasn't anything signature or standout for that price. They are right on the level with Acapulcos and El Toritos, save your money and time. Forgot to mention we drove 1hr and 57min away to have the Javier dining experience....VERY DISAPPOINTING!

    The service and food was great, we decided on Javier’s after viewing them on visit La Jolla on Instagram and viewing more in their own Instagram. To my opinion the serving plates are too big to where they seem empty. The callo de hacha agua chile needs a little more spice or offer Tabasco or something in that category. Again these are personal points of the view the restaurant is gorgeous and the service was outstanding.
