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.

Always a favorite. House Margarita could be improved but food always tasty and innovative. As close to Mexico City cuisine as we have in the city.

We just had one of the most delightful dinner experiences ever! Chef Jose Meza came to each table as the food was served to share his inspiration for the dishes we selected and then came back when we were done to be sure we enjoyed it. And our waiter, Max, was so kind and attentive! There was such pride in what they had to offer their guests and it was such a refreshing experience...even down to our dessert, which was a combination of ice cream and caramel popcorn ❤️ If we lived in Dallas, we would be regulars!

This was my second visit to Jalisco and the first one for brunch

I really appreciate when the restaurant acknowledges the note on the reservation that says I am vegetarian. Here not only did the server acknowledge it but he had done his homework with the kitchen before he asked for our orders and had a few options that were not on the menu that I could consider. That is service and customer focus!

I ordered the migas with the Mexican potatoes and they were delicious. Very hearty. The beans that came with the dish were tasty but seemed a bit heavy for a dish that was already heavy on protein. Maybe some veggies or greens could lighten the dish.

The restaurant was not too busy on a Saturday around noon so it was quiet.

I like the ambience of the space, liked the napkins.

Overall enjoyed my meal. This is a keeper

Everything was great. From the table in the treehouse to desert. Chef Jose Mesa stopped by our table many times to talk about his creations and making sure we were happy with our experience. We started with drinks, martini Rosa, and a Mexican and a cowboy walk into a bar, both were very good and we would order again. Must have is the guacamole.... fantastic. I loved the salmon and my wife loved the poblanos enchiladas. You must also order a side of the okra. Wonderful evening. We will return.

Our meals were very good, reminded us of our trips to Mexico. Tables by the tree house area are very close together so it’s a family style seating feeling without looking to your left or right. It has that in my personal space feel.
They have other tables but the view is best in the tree house area. It’s a Give and take.
Overall it was a good experience.

I’ve always been a fan of Jalisco Norte; my wife less so, which is why I haven’t been in several months. But we gave it another try and we were very impressed. The restaurant is still beautiful and I think the service and menu have improved. We ordered barramundi ceviche for a starter, tacos and halibut al pastor for entrees, together with sides of refried beans and Mexican potatoes. All of it was good, and the star of the night was the halibut – it is pan seared then covered with a al pastor-style sauce, finished in the oven and served with chopped cilantro stems and a roasted pineapple coulis. It was a very good cut of fish and the most original presentation I have encountered. Jose, the executive chef, was working the room and came by to say hello. His experience is impressive with stints in many high-end Mexican resorts and Mexico City’s world-class Pujol. I didn’t notice the reserve wine list because I forgot my glasses this night so I ordered a bottle of Pavo Real Garnacha from the dinner menu, which at $39 was a great value. Jose told us about some of the selections on the reserve list from Valle de Guadalupe and Ensenada and offered us a glass from a bottle of a Rhone-style blend from Ensenada which I found excellent. Mexico has so much to offer in terms of high-end wine and it is really hard to find in US restaurants. I think Jalisco Norte has the market cornered. We are dining at Jalisco Norte again soon, and I will be sure to bring my glasses.

Jalisco Norte has a great atmosphere especially if you can sit in the Treehouses . They have a wide variety of dining options for the menu and an extensive tequila list. An energetic atmosphere it is a great place to see and be seen. Although the food was good, the portions are small and not a great value for the money. Everything is à la cart which is great if you want to try several items on the menu. I will definitely go to Jalisco Norte again but is not the type of place I would go on a weekly basis.

We had the most wonderful experience on our very first visit! Chef came out to our table and walked us through each menu item and explained the origin of the dish creation. He suggested wine pairings and different dishes for each of us. I had the crab cakes and they were amazing! We tried the grasshoppers as an appetizer. Interesting... but worth the adventure. My husband had the halibut and it was equally amazing. I wasn’t crazy about the Rita but the Mexican Red Zin wine Chef suggested was wonderful! Our waitperson, Jose, was excellent! We could not have had a more enjoyable time getting together with friends over a fabulous dinner and dining experience!
