  • Beautiful Restaurant with Okay Food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    My first visit to Mesh was on a Saturday night before a concert at the Murat. The restaurant's decor and ambiance are fabulous. The service was first quality, understated and not intrusive which is how I like it. The wine list was superior. The short coming (and it's a big one) is that the food is sub standard for a restaurant that is trying to be an upscale dining spot. We had the mushroom and goat cheese strudel as an appetizer. It was good but nothing special. It would have been quite bland without the arugala that is served with it. I had the halibut and it was quite good but did not justify the price. My friend had the trout that was a special that evening and it was very bland. I can't recommend this restaurant.

    My wife and I were in Indianapolis for a concert, I searched hard for a great restaurant worked hard to avoid the standard steakhouses in Indy. Mesh on Mass was outstanding in all aspects. appetizers and meals just fantastic. we travel a lot, eat at great restaurants all over and this is top 10 on that list.

    We have been to mesh multiple times. This visit, we took my parents, who are visiting from out of town, to celebrate my dad's birthday. We tend to have fairly different tastes in food, but what I like about mesh is that there is something for everyone's pallet on the menu, and it's all very good. As usual, the ambience and service were excellent as well.

    This is a truly excellent restaurant in Indy, and a significant step up and change of pace from Scholars Inn, which was a great restaurant at the time. All dishes were uniformly excellent. The only downside was that the service, while efficient, seems to be lacking the same sparkle that the restaurant has. Server seemed to be going through the motions is the best way to describe it. Otherwise highly recommended.

  • Who is the customer here?
    StarVIP
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    I asked the server if I could order the tuna well done (the most expensive item on the menu), as I do not like my tuna rare. She said that she would check with the chef. She returned & told me that the chef would only cook it rare. Needless to say, I did not order the tuna. If I'm paying for it & I want my tuna cooked a certain way, I should get my tuna cooked the way that I want it, not how the chef wants it. I realize the flavor will be different, but that was the point. We also were wondering about bread while eating our dinner. When the server picked up our plates, we asked & she said," Oh would like me to bring out bread?" We were finished with our dinner! Why would we want bread now! Needless to say, we won't be returning.

  • Great food, bad service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    The food at Mesh was amazing, however the service was pretty bad. I had a cake delivered and wanted it brought out after dinner. When we got seated, the hostess just stated loudly that the cake was here and asked when we wanted it to be brought out. Hello, it is suppose to be a surprise that you bring out at the end. So, that surprise was ruined. Our waitress was very nice, but extremely slow. It took her so long to bring out every item she said she was going to bring. Like I said, on the up side, the food was fantastic, so kudos to the cooks and "wah" "wah" on the service.

    We stopped by for a samplng of appetizers before a show, and were very pleased. Our chatty, friendly waiter deduced we were a little pressed for time and gave us the attention we needed to wrap up quickly. Ate outside, in the small area between their building and another's parking lot, but nicely screened by shrubbery etc. Mesh salad, lobster/shrimp bisque, crab cakes and mushroom-goat cheese roll all great. We will go back!

    We have ordered the filet the last two times dining here. It is the best we have had in recent memory and my husband says, perhaps the best he can remember ever having! And that is a high praise. Service was excellent. Not rushed, but perfect for us to visit with an out-of-town friend. The menu doesn't try to offer everything, and does what it offers well. Calamari appetizer perfectly cooked and very tender with light breading. Highly recommend a visit.

    We have been to this restaurant several times in the past and were always pleased with the food. This visit was a little disappointing. Three of the four in our party ordered the Walleye, and it was not particularly good. A bit overcooked and flavorless. Since our previous visits were much better, I am hoping that this is just an aberration and not an indication that the restaurant is slipping.

    This has become our go-to spot for dinner before a great show at the Phoenix Theater! We have had no trouble getting a table when we need one, easily allowed us to add one to the party, and it's a short walk to the theater. Our server was great--friendly, funny, and very accommodating! The food is great! Everything on the menu has been top notch. The calamari appetizer is light--not greasy. The Mesh salad is great. We have enjoyed everything we have gotten so far!

    Overall good to very good experience, down a little from our first visit. The bread w/dipping oil was great-love it. We had the pancake w/crab meat appetizer, odd combination, but was really good. My wife and son had the scallops and said they were delicious I had the petite filet with an add-on of some lobster . Wouldn't do the lobster again..nothing wrong with it, but it didn't add anything for me. The filet had great flavor and was very good. I ordered it medium and i know this is subjective, but in comparison to other filets I've had this came out more medium well, a little drier than I would prefer, but the flavor was superb. 1st bottle of wine we ordered was out of stock. I would visit again and recommend to others.

    This is my 2nd time at Mesh and my husband's first. Both time the food was great. We live in Chicago and recently moved from CT giving us easy access to Manhattan restaurants. I ordered my steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. You could actually see the gradation in the meat. I personally think Mesh's food stands up to many high profile restaurants. If you're familiar with Mass Ave the inside is different than one might expect...very big with two floors. The restaurant can get quite loud at times and there are inky 3? bathrooms...all singles which isn't enough for the size of the restaurant. Lastly, our server wasn't very personable, but that was not the case my first visit. All in all, Mesh is a solid restaurant. We will be back.

    Yeah my stake was not very good, I wouldn't have paid that price for it. I would compare it more with something I would get at Applebees. Food overall was very disappointing. The dessert wasn't great either, they apparently are confused about what creme brule is too, and the salt they put on top of it was so potent, I think it might have been radioactive waste.

    Decided to try Mesh for Downtown Devour in Indy. I've been to the restaurant several times before so I was excited to try this out. I ordered the lobster bisque and while it was delicious, it was an extremely tiny portion and not a hint of any lobster in it. It might as well have been Campbell's soup. Everything else was delicious.

    I was excited to try Mesh. Lots of hype about how great it is, etc. we tried it as part of Devour Indy. We made reservations for 8:45- the earliest available. Several parties came in after us with later or no reservations and were seated before us. We were then seated in. The bar- the service was brusque for the cost of the restaurant. The waiter spilled water each time her refilled the water glasses. Our 1st course can out before we even got our wine. The food was good and plentiful. We ordered decaf which was delivered ice cold. It appeared they we re doing us a favor by allowing us dine there. Probably not going back.

    My wife and I went to Mesh for our 11th anniversary and the meal was perfect. The service was very quick and our server was very attentive. Our food was delicious - we shared the Scotch Egg and had the tuna and fillet. The restuarant was nice enough to give us chocolate cake and ice cream to help us celebrate as well. The we had a booth so we felt like we were able to get away from the busy scene, but still able to see all the action of the restuarant. It was a great meal...we will be going back!
