The last time we were in Las Vegas, we stayed at the Aria and walked by Javier’s several times. After an underwhelming Mexican food experience, Javier’s was on the must-do list this time around… and it was fantastic!
Javier’s is on the casino floor, so it’s hopping. But we got a booth near the back so it was energetic without being in your face.
Dave loved the skeleton touches at the entrance.
The second we were seated, we received chips and salsa… and that was replenished twice during the night (even if we were only half done the chips and salsa). It’s always fresh around here!
Service was exceptional from the regular water touch ups to the recommendations of our server Israel. We had great Paloma’s on the first round, and kicked up a notch with some spice he recommended for our second round.
The menu is long, and there is a lot of traditional Mexican food you would expect to see – enchilada’s, tacos, taqueria, etc – in many forms (single, combos). We wanted something lighter and each chose a market fish of the day (mine was halibut and Dave chose sea bass). Again, thanks to the recommendation of Israel we chose a Veracruz sauce with onion, tomato, chilies, cilantro and garlic, and flavoured with olives and capers. Absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked, and enjoyed with a small side of rice.
We leisurely ended our meal sipping on our Paloma’s and nibbling on more chips and salsa (no need for an appetizer here). We completely enjoyed this restaurant and the great service all around. We’ll be back the next time we’re in Vegas!
