A word from Meson Sabika
Meson Sabika is an award-winning Spanish Tapas restaurant that has resided in an 1847 Georgian mansion since 1990. It goes without question, that the restaurant offers an unmatched dining experience. Guests can dine indoors and enjoy the grace and charm reminiscent of a European Villa or can choose to sit outdoors on the terrace while enjoying the ultimate alfresco experience underneath 150-year-old oak trees which cover the estate.

Guests will find that each item on the menu offers a taste of Spain. Whether it’s enjoying hot and cold tapas, sangria, an entree or a vintage wine – there’s always a pleasant combination of exceptional food, friendly service, and unique atmosphere where family and friendship can live life in celebration.

Diner Reviews
  • "I came here on a date and we got a great table on the patio. The sangria was delicious. The food was great. Service was impeccable. Couldn't have asked for a better evening! This is by far one of my favorite restaurants to come to in Naperville!"

  • "Awesome as always. Food was incredible and service was exemplary. Always a great experience."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "Have been coming here for years. Love the food, love the service but I will only go when I can sit outside or in one of the small rooms on the first floor. The noise level can be awful if you are in one of the larger rooms, especially upstairs."

  • "Wonderful menu, good service, excellent wine and beverage selection."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "I took my daughter and her friend, who spent several months studying in Spain this year, and they said the food was better than anything they ate there! All of the classic dishes they grew to love, but prepared in a very fresh, healthful way. I am a vegetarian and there were numerous choices for me, too."

  • "We always love the food here. I like eating in a different room in the mansion each time. The service is excellent"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Waiter was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Food was fantastic!! It far exceeded my expectations."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We really enjoy eating here especially in the summer. The service is touch and go, and the food is pretty good (a bit under seasoned and bland) but definitely one of the better spots in the suburbs. The bacon wrapped dates and the filet skewers are better items. Outside dining is a delight."

  • "To have a conversation we had to shout at each other."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "This could be a great place. The location is wonderful, the house is unique, and they have a great wine list. Suggestions: Reduce the number of items. When you serve this many items to a large number of people, they can't be great. Make fewer things but make them well. Case in point: The pasta dish with asparagus was horrible. No flavor. It was like Cooking 101. Shrimp were overcooked. Same sauce on shrimp as on lobster. No dishes that we tried made me say, "Wow!" Serve fewer people. The dishes should not be made ahead ie: the bacon wrapped dates. When you serve too many people at one time especially tapas, it is impossible to cook everything fresh."

  • "Although we have dinner here many times, we have specifically had our anniversary dinner here now for the 4th time. Great atmosphere, service & food."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Fantastic service, great food (and I don't even usually like tapas restaurants) and excellent ambiance. I kind of want to tour the mansion on a separate occasion if possible"

  • "Our server, Uriel, was ideal. He was friendly, provided great service and food recommendations."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Mesón Sabika's main problem is that it tries too hard to please the American audience that it has forgotten that the main appeal of tapas is that they are simple and light. My duck, although well cooked, was drenched in sauce so you could barely appreciate the duck. The pluses are that the setting is quite nice and the outdoor patio is, great."

  • "Food is consistently delicious! I can't say enough good things about this place."

  • "Three of us "seasoned" ladies had a lovely lunch during a weekday. Although the tapas are always outstanding, it was nice to have the choice of ordering traditional plate lunches as well. It is a beautiful restaurant on beautiful grounds with excellent service. Very special place!"

  • "We sat outside for dinner and were surrounded by a few low-rise (and flowering) stone walls. Meson Sabika is situated in the middle of an expansive and charming landscape....a park-like setting. We ordered a variety of different tapas and each was delicious, eg, one with meat, another with salmon, a shrimp, a cheese, etc. Our waiter was personable, knowledgable, and attentive. Couldn't have asked for more! Go there and don't hesitate!"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Meson Sabika is one of our favorite places. We have our favorite dishes and also try new things. We've never been disappointed. The consistency of the food and the service is what makes Meson Sabika one of our favorites. We often bring friends here. Recommended."

  • "Came for our anniversary. What a lovely find! The waiter was knowledgeable and entertaining - not overbearing. We sat outside, the ambience was just right. Perfect find for a perfect dining experience!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Give this restraint a try. You will enjoy the choices, and the service. If the weather permit try outdoor setting. You will love it. Going with a group gives you a chance to try many different items on the menu. Relax and enjoy."

  • "The food is the best in town and the service was super. It was my daughter birthday and she enjoyed the evening greatly."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "It is getting annoying to be rushed through a meal. I have learned to never order more than 2 tapas at a time or everything will come out & get cold. As it was, we did get out lobster on potatoes & the potatoes were cold. Had to ask for bread several times. Had to flag the waiter down a few times to place an order(he was busy standing talking to his buddies not doing any serving). Then when it came time for dessert, he forgot one of our dessert orders. I made him bring mine back & bring both out together. They are in the habit of giving one cup of coffee and putting the bill down without asking if you would like a refill on your coffee or an after dinner drink. The restaurant patio was not full, but it was loud as they tried to rush us out."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I have been to this restaurant many times, but the majority of those visits have been indoor dining. This time we sat on the patio area. The food remains very good, but add the atmosphere of relaxation and charm of the large shading trees, and lovely flowers, it makes Meson Sabika a great summer dining experience."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I celebrated my 50th birthday there for lunch.The food was delicious!!! I just have one complaint that the lunch selections of the "Hot Tapas" would've included choices of fish just like your selections from your "Tapas To Go " menu. Otherwise.everything was great!I highly recommend your restaurant!!!Will come back again!Thank you!!!:-)"

  • "Had lunch with a friend in the garden. Excellent food, service and ambiance!!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Meson Sabika is a great dining experience. The food is excellent, the service is attentive and the atmosphere is lovely. It is a perfect place for any type of dining experience you wish to have. Every tapas plate we order was excellent and a few we ordered multiple times."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We used to really love Meson Sabika but the food just isn't as good as it used to be. The service was good but I felt like we were being rushed out. Our waiter couldn't pour our wine fast enough and the tapas came out very fast - too fast!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Unusual for Meson Sabika was that our waitress was not very attentive to refilling our beverages. We loved the lunch option of either selecting tapas or a lunch entree. The entree was excellent. The salad was not as good. Again, unusual for any restaurant, the salad was under-dressed."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Meson Sabika is "the best' tapas restaurant in the Chicago land area. The food is presented beautifully and is only exceeded by the unique taste and flavor of each dish. The service is consistently outstanding and environment is classy but not pretentious, it is both historic and warmly inviting. The gardens are spectacular with splashes of color all around including ponds and a gentle waterfall. I have only been there for dinner but I am sure the brunch and lunches are equally phenomenal. A 'must try' if you have never been there. And once you have visited, you'll want to go back again and again."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Meson-Sabika is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. We had the beef tenderloin, dates wrapped in bacon, skirt steak, and the penne pasta with asparagus and spinach. It was all outstanding. Great service and ambience. As a result, we are having our wedding reception at this fabulous restaurant."

  • "Meson is one of our favorite restaurants. We especially love eating outside. The food is consistently excellent with our some of our favorites being the garlic potato salad, bacon wrapped dates, tiger shrimp, and goat cheese in tomato sauce. The servers are very friendly and attentive, although this time they forgot a couple of our dishes, but they were taken off of our bill with no problem."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Excellent food and kindly staff. Con: apparently Meson's dishes are shrinking because their dishes have less food than my last visit few months ago. Salmon cold tapas in special is ridiculously small."
