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.

    Saturday evening. Hostess wanted to seat us in a “back” room where there was a huge noisy party. Couldn’t believe that!! Said nope. There were plenty of empty tables where she finally took us. Food was good; tortillas excellent. Also very good margaritas. Will probably return if only for the drinks.

    I have to say, this was a random pic of a venue. A few coworkers and I decided to go here today and the food was nothing short of amazing. I wish I could remember our server’s name because his personality and his attention to detail would be an employee you would want to hire. The food was extremely fresh, everything was seasoned perfectly, and the view from our table was pretty nice as well. I will definitely be back.

    All staff members were really nice and our waiter was attentive. Beautiful ambience, and I love the earthy decor. We got the fish tacos and the brisket tacos. Sides of guacamole, okra, and potatoes complemented them well. Would definitely suggest this spot for a tasty Mexican meal!

    The cuisine is traditional, but not very innovative. Do not hesitate to order a spicy mole, otherwise it is a bit tasteless. I highly recommend the izamal margarita: just delicious!

    First time there. The service was amazing. Everyone was so attentive. We sat in the patio and it was a cute space. Didn’t even know it was there from the outside. We ate from the Happy Hour menu and filled up on too many chips so didn’t get to try the dinner menu but everything we ate and drank was tasty. Will definitely go back.

    Food was average but not what we have come to expect. Service was very rushed with entrees coming minutes after our appetizer reached the table. When we complained the response was just “sorry “ without an attempt to take back the entrees to serve at the appropriate time. This is not how a nice restaurant should treat customers.

    Was here in July and had a -ve experience. Came back for second chance redemption on a special day, Christmas Eve dinner and the disappointment continues. Service was below par for example the wait person brought menus then left, didnt offer bottle or sparkling water or ask for a drink order. She was robotic to say the least. There was no specials other than "read the specials card" that was left in the center of the table. Usually the fundido is served by the wait person but this staffer never returned. When our entrees arrived, the food was not what Id call chef prepared but more like reheated dishes which is exactly what the kitchen food server stated "dont touch the plates they are hot" We will not be back. This was once a great little gem in Turtle Creek, sadly that place is long gone. Dont waste your time nor your taste buds on this place.

    I used to think that all Mexican food is good and some are even better. This was not good, we all ordered different dinners and they were all sub par. No wonder it was empty on the busy week of Christmas.

    Was not that impressed with the food. Queso was not much better than melted velvevta and solidified before 5 of us could finish it. Flavor of the food was just okay. They were very amenable to our picky eaters and the server was energetic and timely.

    Poor communication and extremely rude hostess. Refused to sit out table even though our party was ready. Being busy is understandable, it’s a Friday night. But choosing to not communicate effectively with your clients, specially when you are the person greeting them, creates a bad experience right of the bat. We had a table for 4, and 3 of us were present. Because our reservation said it was 4 people she refused to sit us. When I told her the 4th person had cancelled they went ahead and sat us. When we were sat on our table (a table that sits minimum 4 people) they took away a chair, not sure if it was to make a point across. My 4th friend ended up showing up as soon as they sat us. Finally our server grabbed a chair for him from a table next to us. All of this was unnecessary. As a patron of years already, I found it disrespectful. Put all of my friends and I in a very weird mood. Behavior like this affects the overall customer experience and creates a bad reputation for your business. You position your restaurant to provide an elevated experience. Behavior like this needs to be addressed and changed. Do better, good luck and happy holidays.

    They brought our salad and entree at the same time. They didn't go together, so it was hard to eat. We didn't want our entree to get cold, but wanted to enjoy the taste sensation of the salad. Both were delicious, though. The coconut flan was so-so. It was very firm/dry and served with ice cream.

    The server was friendly and did a good job, especially considering it was busy. We sat in a room with windows on three sides and it was very nice. That's where the good stuff ends. Lukewarm-to-cool food, not that flavorful. Just a disappointment. We'll give it another try, though, since we've enjoyed it at brunch, and maybe this was just an off night.
