Javier's Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: Javier’s at Aria Resort & Casino serves dishes created from co-founder Javier Sosa’s family recipes. (The Mexico native also has Javier’s restaurants in Southern California and Los Cabos.) The massive 9,000-square-foot restaurant features a circular main bar with a canopy of ropes overhead, a lounge, two dining rooms and a private dining room. Javier’s is located just off the casino, so request one of the booths or tables farther back if you’d like a less public setting. The décor includes alcove ceilings and the world’s largest piece of chainsaw art, with panels illustrating the Mayan Creation myth blended with modern Mexican history.

Food & Drinks: Kick things off with chips and guacamole or octopus ceviche with red onions and cilantro. We recommend selecting one of the combination meals, particularly the Cabo Azul, which includes a Maine lobster enchilada; grilled chile relleno stuffed with cheese, shrimp and Dungeness crab; and an Ensenada-style shrimp taco. Another option is the “Arrachera,” a grilled skirt steak served with fries and refried beans. Dessert brings flan, cakes and fried ice cream. Hand-shaken, made-to-order margaritas are among the libations; the signature “tequila tree” holds a massive collection of bottled tequilas. The staff is efficient and attuned to the diners.
