    They were closed for a short time, but they have come back as good or better. The food was very good and the service excellent.

    Mesa's food is wonderful! Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Miami. The only downside is that the restaurant itself is pretty dark. A minor complaint, which the food more than makes up for. Looking forward to going back soon!

    Nice little place on the Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Had the Miami Spice menu and everything was delicious. Food has a French flare (is apparently a fusion of Venezuelan and French cuisine, which sounds odd, but it works). Will definitely return for a lunch or dinner next time I'm in the area.

    We were amazed for the outstanding dinner that the four of us had at this gem bistro. We are still thinking which plate was the best. From appetizers 'til dessert the venezuelan chef Elida Villareal takes care of every bite. My congratulations!!!!

    Liked this restaurant better when it was Charlotte Bistro and french without the latin addition. But it's still a great choice for a night out.

  • I would never go back to Mesa.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/16/2012
    I would never go back to Mesa. First, both plates ordered were wrong. Second, I can't imagine a rstaurant that does not carry ice tea in S. Fl. Third, the order for coffee was also wrong. We asked for decaf American and got espresso. We were then told AFTER we had been served that this was all they had. Finally, the bill was incorrect. What more can I say. It was not a pleasant dining experience. The chef did come out to apologize for the order mix up but it was a perfunctory apology in our view.

    If you liked Charlotte Bistro, you will also like Mesa - same people running the show, even some similar menu items. More of a Latin twist with Mesa, but we enjoyed everything we ate and drank.

    I made my reservation via OpenTable and received a confirmation by email. We arrived at the restaurant only to find it is not open for business at this time. Not good. At 8 o'clock on a Saturday all the other restaurants were full with 1 hour waits. We were not happy.

    The appetizers (eggplant timbale and escargot) were good. Unfortunately the rest of the meal went downhill. We were not pleased with the entrees, salmon and short ribs (not tender), the flan was rubbery and the capuccino weak.

    I have been to Charlotte several times. I loved it because it was a very gourmet restaurant with no pretentions, just good french food. Saturday, the food was not great. Sorry to say 'cause I want to come more often.

    Really 3 1/2* overall. I started with "olive soup" which was delicious and tastes just like it sounds. (I LOVE olives!) However, after that several issues occurred. I ordered 2 appetizers, one to be brought as appetizer and second to be brought in place of a main. However, both of my appetizers and husband's main were all brought together. Hmmm. Communication error, I guess. Seared tuna appetizer was excellent but tuna tartare was not great-chunky raw tuna in bland liquid. Husband said his main was fine, however my second ap of duck breast was quite overcooked and tough. Odd portion sizes too. My duck appetizer and husband's fish (main) were exactly the same size. I checked prices and we were billed appropriately. Very pretty dining room.
