Enjoyed a great meal and drinks for dinner. Visually impressive with delicious food. Had a reservation and we were seated immediately.

Great place with pretty good food. Very noisy.....not an intimate spot for a quiet night of romance. Pricey.

Love this place. Food and environment both great. We ate at the bar the last time because the wait was going to be over an hour. Plan to wait or go early. Have a drink or two!

Lots of energy, noise, great views and amazing food. First went to Javier’s when it was a tiny place in Laguna. Food continues to delight. Wonderful flavors.

Just stopped here for drinks when we first rolled into town to meet our kids. Got margaritas that were exceptional and noshed on some chips and very good salsa. Didn’t really eat here, but heard favorable comments from many others about the good food, too.

Try to get a table on the patio or the open room which gives you a view of the Pacific Ocean. Then start with the guacamole and any of the selections of ceviches. The Halibut ceviche was outstanding. As a main course, any of the...More

If you like expensive Mexican food, that is definitely a notch above the rest, served in the most outrageously LOUD AND NOISY restaurant you will ever visit, you'll love this place.
