Actually went here more so to see the amazing ceramic pendant lights after reading a story about Ceramica Suro, than to eat. But, we've been looking for really good aguachile since having aguachile de camaron in PVR, so I was extremely pleased to find it on the menu. Everything (the food and drinks) was so good that we will definitely be back!

Outstanding restaurant with very creative dishes from the Chef's home town in Mexico. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the dishes and the how she came to create each dish we asked about. You will need a reservation but I think if there is space at the bar they will seat you for dinner.

The restaurant was extremely hot and uncomfortable. We were celebrating a birthday and everyone in our party was sweating. The food was served to us at different times-some people got their food before others. The quality of the food was different than previous visits. Not as good as it always has been. Not sure I will come back again. Horrible experience!

My family and I have been coming to Jose since it opened. Unfortunately, since the change over to the new chef the food seems to be lacking in boldness and flavor. While everything look beautiful many of the dishes where severely under seasoned and lacked complexity the flavor that makes Mexican food so great! However, the service is, as always, still top notch!

We've been three times to Jose, and it's always a hit or miss experience. On Tuesday, July 3 we sat on the patio and had some of the worst service I've ever encountered. The waiter would disappear for long stretches of time. Obviously the soccer game on the bar TV's were more important than our service. And our server wasn't the only server standing watching the games. Disappointing that the manager wasn't walking the floor to monitor the service or food. In addition, two of us had the redfish entrees and both were hockey pucks (well overdone). And of course there was no way to catch our server who never came back to check our table. What a frustrating night for a $ 280 experience. Love the patio, love the margaritas, love the appetizers, just didn't love Tuesday night as a whole.

I made a reservation for 6:45 and was not seated till 7:30. They told me “they were just waiting for tables to clear,” but evidently, ended up taking 45 extra minutes.

The prawn gazpacho was one of the best soups I’ve ever tasted. The salads were excellent as were their drinks.

The service was attentive with excellent recommendations.

Great looking restaurant. Well done!

I am reluctant to give such a poor review to Jose after so many fantastic meals, but sadly this last visit was way below par. First, the waiter was horrible. He shuffled around with no energy and delayed so long in putting our drink orders that we didn’t receive the first drink until we were half finished with the meal. The second round came out quickly since the manager stopped and inquired how things were going and sensed she needed to intervene. No to mention that our waiter tried to clear our plates three different times while we were still talking and eating. You don’t reach for someone’s plate before asking. My gosh such poor training.

Now for the food. The first plate of my wife’s shrimp tacos had to be sent back. Stone cold. Second try arrived approximately heated but with no flavor and just plain bland. It’s TexMex for gosh sakes.

To management’s credit they checked backed with us and we had an opportunity to give our feedback. We did. My wife’s meal was comped and they did try to help correct the really bad waiter situation. Apparently, as it was explained to us, Jose’s has a new chef and is changing up some of the dishes. So far, my take is “why mess with success”. Up until now Jose was a regular on our list of places to enjoy a casual evening out.

We will give it another shot, hoping that our last visit was a fluke.

We arrived on time for our reservation on a Tuesday night and were told it would be a 25 minute wait. Once we were seated our waiter bumped one of our chairs twice waiting on the table behind us before he ever acknowledged we were there. The service was slow and unimpressive. Second time we have had poor service here.

The vibe and interior design of this place are fantastic. I love the Mexican take on Mid-Century Modern atmosphere. The food, drinks, and service were great as well. You can't go wrong. This would be a great place for celebrations. The patio is big and shaded and would be great when the weather is nice for sipping margaritas.

Celebrated a co-workers Birthday and the staff was amazing. Kept the glasses full and made sure everything turned out fantastic and as ordered! What even made the meal more special is the surprise birthday treat of churros that they brought out at the end. I didn't even ask for them!! What amazing service. Will definitely be returning!!

Jose's is fine if you are in the area but not necessarily anything worth a special trip. I might have given Jose another star if the hostess had provided an inside table per our reservation. However, her unapologetic "we don't have anything inside. You can sit outside or wait 30 minutes for an inside table" did nothing to set the mood in a positive fashion. Why bother to make a reservation if it is not honored? Our waitress also disappeared for long stretches at a time, and forgot an item or two. The Park Cities Enchiladas and the Queso Fundido were very good. The cerviche tostadas and salad were ok and pricey.
