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.

Our waiter was fabulous. So personable. I was there with a friend I had not seen in a while. He knew when to step in and when to leave us alone! Love all your “fresh” items on the menu. Get satisfied with Mexican food flavors w/o the high calories! Yes!

The restaurant is very nice, but the noise level on the inside is very loud. If you want to be able to talk to others in your party, book outside.

This was our first visit and we loved it. Food was so yummy and the service attentive but nonintrusive. We sat outside, with the fans and A/c units it was comfortable. The inside is super cute too- wooden floors and white tablecloth tables. Great spot for a special but not stuffy dinner.

We had a reservation for six, and they tried to convince us to take a four top with six place settings. We are not small people, so that would not work. But within 20 minutes they got us an appropriate sized table. We had a nice evening.

Trendy, modern, stylish. Carmen was the best. The chile relleno with shrimp, she recommended, was amazing. My boyfriend had the Pescado al ajillo, it disappeared before I could even have a taste, so I guess he enjoyed it. Lol. We'll be back.

Great Mexican restaurant and very accommodating staff. We showed up late and had extra folks in party- they were still able to get us a table in 5 mins. The food was delicious and servers were excellent. Would highly recommend! Also great guacamole and spicy margaritas

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.

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

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.
