    Innovative and thoughtful interpretations of classic Mexican resturant dishes, with some clever twists. Emphasis on taste rather than smothering everything with cheese and sour cream. Nicely presented by caring servers. Good selection of tequilas. However an emphasis on hanging TVs around seems odd given the attempt at an interesting and relevant ambience otherwise.

    First off, I'd like to say that our server, Edwin, was EVERYTHING a server should be. He was fun, knowledgeable, and attentive. He was great & I highly recommend requesting him. Now about the restaurant as a whole. Mesa's a beautiful place with an appealing extensive menu BUT I thought it was overpriced. I am all about treating myself to a nice meal as long as it satisfies. If it weren't for the complimentary chips & salsa, I would've had to order another entree to be sated. I ordered the crispy cod tacos and they were out of this world. Very rarely do I ever have fish tacos (other than my own home) where you can actually taste the fish. But I was still hungry! All in all, it was a great experience. I just wish it wasn't quite so pricey.

    We have been to Mesa Modern Mexican numerous times. The food is delicious and is prepared consistantly. They have great margaritas and a very nice cocktail menu and wine list. The fresh made guacamole and fresh salsa and chips are fantastic. The service is also very good and consistent. The menu has many selections, all very good. This a great restaurant and is one of our new go to places. The food is different and the atmosphere is cozy. Worth a visit...

    Met up with a friend for lunch on a Sunday. Fruited guacamole was outstanding—we enjoyed every bite. Loved my strawberry-jalapeño margarita; great flavor combination and they certainly did not skimp on the tequila! Crispy cod tacos were excellent. Just the right portion size and layers of flavor. Would have loved to try dessert, but didn't have room after all that guac. Parking was easy. We'll be back as there is a lot more on the menu I'd like to try.

    We dined here on a hopping Saturday night. The place was packed but the service was excellent and the wait for our entrees was minimal. We both had scallops and shrimp over lobster ravioli. It was absolutely delicious and the presentation was beautiful. It is served in a "nest" made out of potato that they somehow made into angel-hair pasta thin strands and either fry or bake. The sauce was divine.

    Normally this place is aces, 100% satisfaction. But Friday night we were shocked to get what appeared to be salsa from a can. Not even close to the normal Mesa salsa made fresh with loads of cut tomatoes. This was a watery, chemically tasting mush. I hope they just ran out, and that this isn't a new substitution going forward because this place is known for the salsa and chips that are served. Should also note it came in a big white bowl, instead of the typical themed black cauldron. Also the water we received was warm, which was a disappointment considering the restaurant was experiencing a heat wave inside. Just doesn't taste the same when you are used to their ice cold water that comes in a nice glass container.

    This was our first visit to the restaurant. We have dined at the sister restaurant "Tapas on Main" many times and consistently had great food and wonderful service. Mesa Modern Mexican was the polar opposite. Horrendous service and mediocre food. The staff spent more time socializing than attending to customers. The food was no better than chain food Mexican Cuisine. For the cost, it was not worth the trip.

    This place was a little dark walking in, but they turned up the lights a bit as the night rolled on. The food was outstanding, as was the service, and it made a special night even more special. The food is great, decent portions, and the menu has something for everyone. Have been there before, and will definitely return.

    I had the Salmon tacos and the vegetarian quesadilla for an appetizer. Both were amazing & delicious. The chicken enchilada's were a little dry however. The restaurant was pretty crowded and the service was not the best. The waiter really never checked on us or refilled our drinks.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Mesa Modern Mexican. The hostesses were very friendly, our server was fun and very efficient and the music was just the right touch! I was only there for dinner, but I would love to visit for brunch and lunch. I'm sure my comments would be favorable! The fish tacos ad guacamole were exceptional along with a yummy Mango Margarita. Hopefully, my schedule in the future will permit a chance to experience the nightlife!

    Even the non-guacamole members of our group loved the table side guacamole- gone in a flash! The menu is exciting- not standard boring Mexican at all. It will take many visits to explore all the unique and interesting options. The limoncello basil margarita was interestingly yummy and lets just say- not weak. All of our entrees were delicious and the service was wonderful. We love Mesa Modern!

    To start the chorizo guacamole was out of this world. The bowl was wiped clean when it was all said and done. for our entrees my ice had the grilled hanger steak with lobster fried rice which she loved, I had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with sun dried tomato mashed potatoes and spinach. The pork melted in my mouth, properly cooked and the flavor was outstanding. The sun dried mashed potatoes and spinach were unbelievable. The plates were clean when dinner was over. Finally I need to say our server, Edwin, was fantastic. Since it was our first time there he guided us through and made dinner very enjoyable. When we go back again I hope to have him again.

    Our forth visit to mesa modern- we brought the kids. Girl 18 Boy 13. They made alterations to the food choices they selected just for their liking. Server went out of her way to ensure fantastic service. There was a kitchen glitch... Half our food went to wrong table and they comped our drinks for the inconvenience. That was completely unexpected but greatly appreciated. Along with the food customer service is top notch. Love love LOVE Mesa Modern

    The menu is fairly focused... and our food was executed extremely well. Very vibrant margarita, table made guac (we had it with chorizo), and nicely paired flavors on the app menu (probably could just order everything and enjoy it). Definite spot for drinks and some tasty bites, and an attentive front-of-house manager. This is NOT "cheese and sour cream" Mexican, either.
