Great FoodWe went there on Mother's Day and the service and food was terrific. They make best Cuban food in TX. Try their steak with rice, beans and plantains.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a mix of tapas andWe had a mix of tapas and bacaloa (spelling might be wrong)which was very good. Service was provided by Tacy who was very good. Great spot to enjoy Spanish food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I live in theMy wife and I live in the area and used to come to this place a decade ago. In those days it was a classic Mexican restaurant. They started to move UpMarket and - lost me. This is the first time I have been back in many years. They have now gone much more "Spanish" and have an extensive Tapas menu. Since I like Tapas - we tried it. It was a pleasant surprise. The food was very good - albeit - this (like many tapas places) is sort of sneaky expensive. Individual prices are not high - but as you order many places the prices creep up. Still, this is an issue at any tapas place and they are no worse. Go for the food. The service was excellent - our waiter was friendly and very attentive and professional. We will be back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA touch of SpainWe enjoyed our dinner at El Meson very much. The tapas choices, wine, and entrees were all very good. Lamb meatballs, spanish tortilla (frittata), and serrano ham with Manchego were delicious. The Solomillo entree, a butterflied pork tenderloin filet, was cooked to perfection and of generous proportion. The red snapper entree and Paella were equally tasty. There was enough to take home for another meal.
It was a pleasure to have a leisurely meal with our party of 5 and be able to carry on a conversation without yelling at each other. That's worth 10 stars in my book.
It was our first visit there, but we will return.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid food, reasonable price/accessCuban/Spanish cuisine that will not change your life, but is always what you want it to be. Paella's are excellent. Standard (ropa vieja, masitas, osso bucco) are all very good. Rarely over-crowded and great for larger groups (with reservation).3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
