MEX Ratings and Reviews

I really dislike this place. I ordered 3 different tacos. The mahi were dry and hard, the chicken, meh and the steak taco smelled like hot garbage, which I left alone. When asked if I want the remaining taco wrapped, I mentioned this to the manager that was strolling the restaurant. He asked how I would like this handled and I asked to have that portion l removed from my bill. Sure enough, it wasn't. The only reason I came here was because of a gift card. Had I known it was accepted at their other restaurants, I would have steered clear of this place. I have been here several times always with another couple or small group. The food is consistently crappy. Never again.

Second time I have been to Mex. Fun atmosphere, not exactly Mexican inspired, but whimsical decor. Did not have the elotes because it is a seasonal item, which was a bummer because it was my favorite item when I visited in October. Margaritas are good, chips & guac & salsa are on point. Entrees are large portions and tasty.

Waiter was fine and pleasant. The fish taco was not great- not even good. Mostly cabbage and sauce. The place has deteriorated in the past year. Skirt steak was not prepared correctly. Oh well. Pass next time - average food at higher prices Place was terrific when it first opened.

I have yet to have a really good meal here, but it is too convenient sometimes, and last night was one of those. Good energy last night, more crowded than normal, which creates the illusion that the place is cool. It would be if the food was good. People see other people and say "oh yeah, its great". It isn't. Someone should teach the chef what ceviche is because theirs is nothing more than a shrimp cocktail with the shrimp pulled apart. Not the same thing. My girlfriends tacos were at best mediocre. She is not a foody, but finally proclaimed that we will not be going back. Whew, its about time. OVERRATED

Our group arrived 15 minutes late due to traffic accident - waiter did a great job, provided options for the table for drinks/food. Food was fantastic and we enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. we will definitely go back!

My husband had never been to Mex before, and loves Mexican food, so I made a reservation. We had great food and a great time chatting with others in the bar until our table was ready. And we sat at a tall bar table so could watch what was going on in the kitchen, too!

After reserving a spot at 7:30 on a Friday evening for six people we were placed at a four-person table all squeezed together with empty tables next to us . When we requested that we spread out to another table they told us that was not possible . We had to hold our dishes in our hands because nothing could fit on the table for six people and we complain to the manager not only did he look like he was clueless he didn't even offer any type of arrangement or anything for such a horrible experience at this restaurant .
After spending close to $300 at this restaurant I would not choose to return here and the manager needs to be replaced with someone oriented to customer service .

We went to Mex for a birthday celebration. Our server was training, but his trainer was worse than him. The food was really good, but it took over 2 hours for dinner. I walked in about 3 minutes behind the rest of the people in our party. The server took drink orders for 2 of the 6 of us. Then he came back to take the rest of the drink orders, but not appetizers. Then he came back with the drinks and took app orders. He left one out, but claimed it wasn't ordered. The sides we thought were included with our entrees were not and they didn't say anything about an up charge. The food was very good, but the services was pretty horrible. Considering that the restaurant was nearly empty, I expected more.

The food was really good but I've had better and paid 1/3 of the price. You're paying for the W Bloomfield address and not the value of the meal. It was great to try, service was great just the meal was over priced. The meal wasn't very authentic, it was too "Americanized" The Guacamole was AWESOME but you really can't mess that up. It is good for a date or for a special occasion but not really anything other than that. I probably won't go again unless I was invited. But I won't deter people for going either.

Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. She made drink and food recommendations. We tried two different margaritas. The ghost margarita was very good. The everything guacamole was more than enough for two to share. Between the two of us, we tried five different tacos. Two out of the five were below average. The chicken taco was dry with very little flavor and the Gogi taco was a bit too rich and sweet. The cod, mahi, and chorizo tacos were good. Overall, we feel that $75 (not including tip) is a bit pricey for a basic taco dinner.

First time visiting - came for brunch which was PHENOMENAL! Really dig the decor, great service and the food was off the chain. Great margaritas. Moderately priced - what I'd expect for the area. Margaritas are on the smaller side - server must read my expression as she immediately explained that the drink was smaller because there was " less juice and more liquor". Amusing explanation but no complaints - it was awesome. I will absolutely be coming back.

Very cool swanky place with fun atmosphere. The food was to die for and very close to authentic Mexican which doesn't have a lot of cheeses. Beans were made to perfection with a great flavor. Try the Elote as it was the first I've had not served on a cob and beyond the best I've ever tasted. The tequila list is extensive with lots of great options. I took a tequila flight so that I could taste a few different options of the anejo list. Dessert was mouth watering. The avocado Lime pie is a must and the fried ice cream had an amazing touch with pineapples and corn cereal. Highly recommend this place! Great date night, girls/guys night as well as family atmosphere!

We usually love MEX, but this was not our best visit. The waitstaff brought greasy chips twice to our table and did not seem to care to get us quality chips that looked or tasted appetizing. The dinner food was good, but service was slow at first.
