Javier's - La Jolla
So yummy and so quick! Everything was great.. the service, the care and quality of food.
We enjoyed the decor and the food was very good. I had the Cabot azul was excellent but a lot of food. My husband ordered a typical combination plate which he enjoyed. The Javier Margarita a must have.
One of the most beautiful interior spaces in the country! The Spanish, Mediterranean, and rustic vibes were everywhere. The food was amazing and the view was spectacular from our booth. We had the ceviche and the mole which were both exquisite. They did a great job at distancing the tables for guests for safer dining during the pandemic.
The crab enchiladas are the best as are the chips, salsa and margarita's. Our waitress was attentive but not intrusive for our anniversary meal.
This place is consistantly excellent. Great authentic food, outstanding ambience (we love the outdoor feel of the place) and amazing service. A must-try for steak lovers is the 14oz Prime bone-in ribeye. Cannot wait to go back!
Service was great and drinks and food do not disappoint. Lobster enchiladas are amazing. Noise level can be challenging at times.
AMAZING, gorgeous area with excellent food. Would go again. 10/10
Delicious food and drunk
Tell your wallets to buckle up, they're in for a ride.
Starting with the tamarindo margarita, that was pretty impressive.
When it started to go downhill was when the civiche came out.... have you heard of dry civiche?! Two words to explain it... Lack luster.
Just when you thought you could only go up, you order your second margarita, the Javiers. Picture plastic bottles tequila, sweet and sour and more water than you pour in a hydro flask and you have their "Cadillac margarita." And don't get me started on the casa margarita... it was a tequila water from the local watering hole down the street.
Just when I thought I hit rock bottom. The food showed up and actually turned out to be a solid meal. We had the seafood enchiladas and the seafood trio. It was solid. Worth $35 per plate? Absolutely not.
However, the ambiance was awesome and the meal and service could have been worse.
Great experience, ready for the next occasion
Beautiful restaurant and good food, but the service was atrocious . The server messed up our order multiple times, never once apologized. Never smiled at us, seemed like he was having a very bad day and did not want to be there... not good when you’re spending $200+. I have no desire to go back
Absolutely love this place. Food was excellent. Service was top notch. Environment was over the top. Large selection of adult drinks. Lots of delicious foods to choose from. A loud and energetic crowd. Highly recommend the shrimp tacos and the fajitas. Will most certainly return!
The decor is elegant, food superb and service impeccable. Highly recommended.
Far too crowded during a pandemic. Some people were not wearing masks when they got up. Tables are very close together. Waitress was not wearing her mask properly. Disappointing and scary experience to say the least.
always enjoy Javier's and especially during the pandemic they are very careful and take all precautions. The food and service were both excellent. Good to have a meal outside and feel like you are on vacation for a least an hour during this time.
Food was excellent and well presented . Margaritas were a little pricey but everything else was amazing .
Bad table, asked to be moved and got another bad one in corner. Made reservation one week in advance.
We were refused service because we had a stroller.
Delicious food, great service and incredible ambience!
Amazing ambiance, great food and spectacular customer service! Beautiful restaurant!
Amazing ambiance inside and the lobster enchiladas were outstanding!
Great accommodations for COVID-19. Felt really comfortable and safe
Boyfriend me birthday surprise! Waiter and everyone was great! Good was amazing!
Fantastic Food and drinks, location is stunning visually
Beautiful restaurant , the service was excellent and the food was delicious especially the queso fundido and crab enchiladas.
We are frequent visitors @ Newport Coast location. I have to say your Fajitas and Fideo del mar did not meet up to par as we are accustomed to @newport coast 🙃
It was a lovely lunch with a fabulous atmosphere. The food is delicious and the service is on point.
Great food and ambiance! Always a great spot for a celebration!!
Drinks and music were perfect, we had dinner before so we only ordered the beef taquitos which were good and the mole enchilada which I do not recommend, I was only able to take one bite.
The food was delicious and loved the music
Javier's has become our Friday lunch / happy hour spot. The food is great and the margaritas even better. We always receive the best service from the hostess to our waitress. We go back time and time again and always get the same level of excellent service. I continuously get the enchiladas suiza. I promise myself I am going to try something else, but it's always so good and rich in flavor I have to get it. This has become a great relaxing spot to eat, drink, and laugh the afternoon away.
Beautiful and delicious
Tablita excellent however chicken and carne aside way over done. Pork was fantastic.
I should start by saying my family loves this place and we love Josh the manager who always treats us like family. We usually get Gisela( who no longer works there) or Bianca who are both amazing servers.
This time around we were there to celebrate my husbands bday. Josh came by as per usual, he’s the sweetest. But our server was so slow, we felt like she kept wanting to close us out the whole time. She finally brought the bill which we paid, it was over $900. We told her we’d close that out but wanted another round of drinks. She told us she’d have to talk to a manager, because someone was waiting for our table. A manager came about 15 minutes later (not Josh) this manager said he’d need to move us. We waited about another 30 mins. Let’s do the math, that’s 45 mins later just sitting there, letting the celebration fizzle put. We could have had another drink and been gone within that 45 mins. Finally she came with our drinks and another bill, and guess what we were never moved.
I absolutely know if we would have said something to Josh, he would have fixed it, but shouldn’t everyone be giving the same service as Josh & Bianca!!!
Always love coming here. Our service was pretty crappy this time for the first time ever! Drinks took a really long time. Server wasn’t too friendly. We’ve never had a female server before here until today. Food came out quick. Enchilada suizas were extremely salty this time. Our dessert was great.
Great service; fresh seafood; good Mexican selections and flavors; VERY mediocre margaritas; stick with pure shots which are very generous. Very Loud; fun people watching; beautiful decor; very expensive
Our server was wearing a mask but she was not covering her nose. This was of great concern to us. She wasn’t very friendly and overcharged us by $7 per drink. Food was just okay, nothing great especially for the price. Will skip this place from now on.
This a large busy restaurant. It is doing its best to seat as many people as possible, but there were many people in the bar area and mingling about— not great for intimacy or social distancing. A young crowd, if that is what you are looking for. I think there are better options in La Jolla for this type of cuisine and better values to be had. Probably good for a business lunch or if you are shopping at the Mall .
We were out celebrating our anniversary and everyone was amazing!
Restaurant was over capacity for Coronavirus standards
