Stopped by for a drink and appetizers. The restaurant is well-appointed, drinks were delicious. Nachos were a very small portion but tasty. Tacos were good.

Walk in and the decor is awesome. We sat next to the fire pit. Best seats in the house. Great view out to the ocean. The food was very very reasonably priced. Honestly it should probably cost almost double (don't tell the owner). The food really is that good. The bar is great as well. Only thing to change, lose... More

This is a fantastic restaurant. We expected normal Mexican fare, but they have so many unique dishes. The wait staff was very efficient. Eat here if you can. You won't be disappointed!

I love Mexican food and this place is my absolute favorite. If you like shellfish you will be blown away by the Crab, Shrimp or lobster enchiladas. I have had them all but keep coming back to the Crab. Seriously large chunks of fresh Dungeness Crab meat. Also have awesome retried beans and my favorite super hot habanero salsa (you... More

This is fine dining with nachos. A beautiful restaurant across from the ocean, and very well crafted dishes. The menu is very extensive and incorporates lots of local seafood and it is not limited to the basic menu you'll see at many Mexican restaurants. I had shrimp enchiladas and they were stuffed with shrimp, great flavored sauce and good rice/beans.... More

I love the atmosphere, especially in Newport Beach. The food is delicious, always. We have been going to Javier's since it was in downtown Laguna Beach, it's my very favorite restaurants.

I have been to Javier's many times, including the one at Irvine Spectrum and John Wayne airport, and the Newport Coast location is by far the best Mexican restaurant I have ever visited in southern California. The food, service and atmosphere are all consistently 5 star! Great weekend bar scene.
