Opened in 2018 by Dallas restaurateur Mico Rodriguez, Doce Mesas is a return to his roots. From 12 tables (doce mesas) in the 90s to massive success in his M Crowd ventures Mico has seen it all. Armed with a passion for food and a penchant for good service, this is his best one yet.

Doce Mesas emits a California coastal vibe with billowing white curtains and a beautiful wraparound patio. A breezy indoor outdoor flow and white table cloths makes for an intimate and upscale feel that is still accessible to families. Pair that with Dallas’ favorite margaritas and you’ll never want to leave.

Great food, GREAT margaritas, but they don't really do well with reservations. Even with a reservation, I always end up waiting 15-20 minutes for a table. Not bad if you're not in a rush, but if you have set plans after dinner I would not recommend coming here because you will be late.

We were seated on the patio Saturday night...very pleasant and much more relaxed than the main dining area which was very, shall we say, vibrant! Ceviche was superb, entrees first class, and server was top notch. We'll be back!

We were looking for a fun Mexican restaurant to take our Grandson. I Yelped Mexican Restaurants Knox Henderson. They had 4.5 stars. We can certainly see why. The food was so good. We couldn't make up our minds between Guacamole (delicious) and the queso so our server suggested we do half and half! Amazing. I couldn't decide between two tacos … once again, one of each. My husband and Grandson had enchiladas with con carne sauce …. Sooooo good! Service was great and it wasn't too noisy. Definitely a repeat. It was too hot for the patio but when the weather cools down it would be a great patio to sit and enjoy food and drink! The margaritas were outstanding as well.

They forgot about our check and then asked us to move tables to make room for a bigger reservation when we were wanting our check, then they never brought our check and focused on the larger table.

Food is always good, as is the service. Learned today they don’t allow dogs on the patio.

The food was wonderful and our waitress was fantastic. However, I won't recommend this restaurant to anyone due to the extreme noise level. We go out to eat 3 times a week and I have never had such an unpleasant dining experience. If you can get a table outside, that to me would be the only possible option.

Love this restaurant- however, they do not have enough space to accommodate the crowd they draw. Despite making a reservation, our table was not ready on time and they ended up squeezing us in a table at a diagonal which was not comfortable

The service, food and ambiance was fantastic! I would definitely recommend sitting on the patio, because the inside is louder. Overall, great experience!

If I could give this a zero I would. The hostess was the rudest person I have ever met. We made reservations with open table and still had to wait 45 minutes because they thought there might be a large table coming in. We were seated at 8:15 when our reservations were at 7:30. Midway during our meal; our waitress told us we had to move because a large table came in. This place has gone down hill since they rebranded it from Mr. Mesero. This was one of my go to places in Dallas but I will never step foot in here again.

The service was outstanding. The ceviche was great & my flan obsessed husband said it was in his top 3 flans he’s ever had. I recommend the patio because the inside was a little noisy and a little crowded but overall, great place and we’ll definitely be back.

The food and service here is commendable. The noise level is almost intolerable.
Queso & guacamole were fresh and lovely, margaritas & sangrias & Micos were quite good.
Taco salad & Las Palmas salads are also fresh and good. Brisket taco was moist and the fish taco was delicious. My friend liked their Chicken Adobo. The Pastel de Leche cake was moist and not too sweet.
Service was attentive and they were open to modifications. We will definitely be back, but try to sit in a more remote corner.

Doce Mesas was very accommodating to our very large party. The food and service were great. It was my first time being back since the name/management shift, and it was excellent.

OpenTable should remove the 10:30 reservation option. When we arrived, we were told they close at 10:30. We were still able to eat but felt uncomfortable and rushed.
