Our server Abraham was wonderful! Understood my food allergies and was attentive without being too present. The food was flavorful and not too expensive. Chips and salsa were GF if you’re okay with cross-contamination, thankfully. I would go back!

Everything about this restaurant is truly exceptional. From the margarita menu down to the table salsa and chips. Best in class in every regard. The fish was prepared perfectly and was obviously fresh. Presentation on every dish is unique and beautiful. Jalisco Norte is world class.

Great restaurant. The chef is amazing. However some dishes are very expensive. We ordered Chiles en Nogada as September special, single dish was over $45dlls.

I enjoyed a delicious and seasonal Chile enogado but at $42 I found it to be pricey for the dish content. Did not like the Skinny Margarita. Scrumptious queso fundido with mushrooms and very nicely served by our waiter. Triple mark-up on the Casa Madero chardonnay is excessive.

I do like the authentic cuisine and garden room is pretty but too noisy. The ambiance in back rooms by the kitchen needs to be improved.

I lived in Mexico for 23 years so I consider myself a decent judge of the cuisine......

We had a wonderful meal served by an excellent waiter, Jose Luis. We started with the fried brussels sprouts that were a little more al dente than we would have preferred, butfun and interesting. One of us ordered the brand Zeno that was a large portion to file’s of delicious fish that was prepared beautifully. The other had the crabcake that he liked very much. I am forgetting the one side that we shared, but remember enjoying it and we experimented on a lemon dessert that was very different but nice and enough for two.

Food was AMAZING! Chef Meza pays an homage to the savors and traditions of Mexican cuisine - the real Mexican flavors.The attention to details such as the hoja santa on the guac or the tomatillo salsa are great examples, but it was the exquisite “Chile en Nogada” that we called the star of our meal.

The Restaurant Week menu was good, especially the osso buco. Service was spotty. The main hit the table before I was through with the appetizer, and I had to help myself to a dinner fork from another table.

Service is outstanding, food is original, never frozen and delicious. Great drink menu! Noise level was fine for dinner at 7:00 but by 8:00 it was very loud. Sunday brunch was quiet the whole time. I recommend both!

Staff was very accommodating. Food was also good and a nice change from Tex Mex. Margaritas were fair. Our table tried 3 different ones and they just didn't have much flavor. It does appear they are trying to avoid the taste of the typical sugary margarita which is a good thing but it just seems to me missing something. Anyway, I'd recommend eating here but maybe a different cocktail

Jalisco Norte has become my new favorite restaurant. The actual restaurant itself is beautiful, and the service and food match. This was my first mole experience, and let me just say mole is now my favorite food. We also tried the two margaritas that have earned them a place on Forbe's top margaritas in the country. The ceviche with the passionfruit puree was amazing. I will definitely be back.

The right side of the restaurant was very very noisy.

The food was OUTSTANDING! The staff was also OUTSTANDING!! The only negative for me was the loudness. My wife and I went here for our anniversary and the only problem was hearing eachother talk above the noise in the restaurant. Outside of this we had an amazing time. The manager was awesome as well and he provided us a ton of interesting information about the food and how it was prepared. I would definitely recommend and we will definitely be back for another visit VERY SOON!

Went for restaurant week, and the food was amazing. The mole was very flavorful and not too overpowering. A great mix of many flavors. The tres leches piña colada cake was TO DIE FOR. Seriously one of the best desserts I’ve had.

The food was different from typical TexMex which I enjoyed. The noise level was too much. I had to ask waiter several times to repeat himself. I live in Plano and am Hispanic and I enjoyed my food.

We truly enjoyed this place. Jasmine was excellent in helping us with the menu. The food was so fresh and flavorful. Cuddos to the chef!! We met the owner who checked on us to see if all was going well. We visited with the sommelier, who was so helpful with the Mexican wines. We will definitely go back! Too many great things on the menu we didn’t have room for!

The restaurant is cute. Great ambiance. It took the waiter 15+ min to even take a drink order which was ridiculous. I had to flag him down to get some attention but he had no problem checking on the table next to us. The drinks were good, as was the food. But the drinks were overpriced and mainly ice. I probably wouldn’t go back.

SO glad I came! Wonderful food! Chicken enchiladas were delicious and the milanesa taco was divine! (Rice and decried beans were both a bit blah and tasteless). Summer sangria was perfect! A must return!
