Best Restaurant in Triangle! – My husband and I are completely in love with Jibarra. From their amazing cocktails, to their creative food, the place is exquisite. I think one of the points lacking from other reviews is that yes, this place is expensive-- but only if you are comparing it to other mexican restaurants, which this place is definately not. Entrees are about 20-25 bucks, however, you go anywhere in Raleigh these days, and that is actually commonplace. Take some of our more noteworthy restaurants in the triangle: Vin, Mura, Nelson's, Margaux's, Fin's- not to mention all steakhouses. I believe Jibarra is a concept Raleigh has been waiting for. They are not trying to be like everyone else, and make all of their food and cocktails from scratch. The setting is romantic, but not overdone.

BEST BRUNCH IN RALEIGH – YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!!!, everything is delicious. I highly recommend you to get the ROYAL BRUNCH, which includes a large plate of fruit & yogurt, entree, unlimited mimosas (which are amazing, specially mango and peach), and yes, I said UNLIMITED!!! and also unlimited access to their incomparable pastry buffet. It's just the best brunch in town. Best bets: Torta de Cochinita...Pastel Azteca...Tamales de Elote...Bistec con Chilaquiles...EVERYTHING!!!, and the best of all: PERFECT for a Sunday brunch with your kids!

Well-prepared food, too expensive, long wait times – It was Father's Day and Mexican is my favorite type of food. My wife is a foodie, so I compromised by finding a gourmand Mexican restaurant. They do exist. Jibarra is one such restaurant. However, I can't recommend it. The service was competent, if barely so. Our waitress was friendly, but for a 75% capacity evening, she seemed more rare than one would expect. Being Father's Day, I brought the family, another mistake. They eagerly accommodated us, but again, just barely. I wouldn't expect an upscale restaurant to accommodate with crayons and paper, but when combined with the 90 minute wait for our meal, that's more than any little one can handle. Then there's the food. I had the rack of lamb -- and it was one of the best lamb meals I have ever eaten. My wife's meal was well prepared (chicken breast) but not extraordinary. My mom's shrimp and prawn was very good, too. Here's the rub -- for this family of 6, $176 + tip is far too expensive. While the lamb was excellent, I don't see coming back for more. You can feel the restaurant really trying to reach out. The decor is mostly very nice. Unless you like spending vast amounts of money on Mexican food, or have a large disposable income (in which case I safely recommend the place) you might want to pass.

Exotic and Luscious – Visited Jibarra mid-week and found it to be fantastic! The bartender, management, and wait staff went out of their way to be accommodating and just over-all fun. The food was wonderful and the cocktails... words cannot describe how good they were! Do not go to this cosmopolitan restaurant thinking of quesadillas, burritos, and Dos Equis... the savory fare there is much more upscale than that! In a word make plans to visit soon!

disappointing – everything i head about this restaurant sounded great - but everything tasted average. Kind of like how at Disney Land restaurants everything sounds high end, but it's average food for high end prices. Plus the service was terrible - the server apologized a lot, but it still remains that it was poor service.

Awesome dining experience – On a business trip to Raleigh in Arpril, advance research for a good place to eat turned up Jibarra. As a single woman who often travels alone, dinner can sometimes be lonely or intimidating. Here, it was neither. Staff was friendly and professional, and the bartender went out of his way to recommend several great wines for my meal (which was awesome!!) Jibarra is every bit as sophisticated and wonderful as restaurants in Atlanta, and the food was better than most. I look forward to coming back.

Bon Apetite... – Just I was at Jibarra, surprise me. I enjoyed the food, the music and when I find the owners are Ibarra' new generation in United State from Mexico, there was a growing recognition. The menu is super and the price is average for that type of food.

Raleigh has been waiting for a place like this!! – I've had the best mexican food in Jibarra. I really recommend it. The food is creative perfectly preferred and worth the price. Every dish is distinct, service was fantastic,and the cocktail menu is wonderful the margaritas are the best. Jibarra has such a great atmosphere you want to stay all night.

Great food, good service – Jibarra brings fine Mexican dining to the Triangle, just as Rick Bayless of Topolobampo brought it to Chicago. This is not a place for street food, such as tacos and burritos, this is upscale Mexican dining with an emphasis on fresh and innovative ingredients. Standouts on the menu are the lamb shank, cooked in classic bistro fashion with a mole-inspired twist, the duck breast, the chicken breast with huitlacoche stuffing, and the chile relleno. Excellent food, pleasant wait staff, a memorable fine dining experience.
