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.

    Meson Sabika is such a great place...excellent food, great service. A shout-out for our server Steve, who was very helpful. He would make suggestions, but was not pushy, which was appreciated! We also asked for a separate order of paella to go, and he handled it without issue. Well done!

    So, if you really like good food, attentive staff who are really friendly and are willing to not be able to hear the party you are with, then this is the place for you! Its all down to packing too many people into one room and then trying to offer excellent service and good food to make up for the absence of ambience. Trying to hold a conversation is virtually impossible due to the din all around you, which is too bad, as everything else is very good. I would recommend this restaurant with the cautionary note to try lunch rather than a special occasion for dinner.

  • Fine vegetarian dining choices

    Dined on 10/10/2014
    We are vegetarian and as such there are always challenges when it comes to finding a place for a special occasion like birthday or anniversary. My wife herself is a fine cook and treating her to fine vegetarian dining adds to it. Meson Sabika has not failed to meet those high expectations of the two times we have visited. In fact, we had enough vegetarian choices and were stuffed to the point that we passed on ordering desserts. Our host Danny, knowing that it was my wife's birthday that we were celebrating served us a dessert with candle to make it extra special for her. Extremely happy with the food and service and look forward to visiting again to celebrate some other event in near future.

    My wife and I went there for our anniversary. I couldn't have picked a better place. Our waitress was friendly, very knowledgable and a great fit for Meson Sebika. Her recommendations were spot on. The pitcher of Red Sangria went well with our food and lasted the entire meal.The evening was perfect!

    We loved Meson Sabika. The setting is gorgeous. It has several dining rooms in the Willoway Manor an impressive mansion built in 1847 for Dr. Lilly.The setting inside and out is so elegant, charming, and romantic. The food was terrific. We loved the soup aromatic, an onion broth with manchego cheese. The cold tapas we ordered was tuna cannelloni, calamari, and King crab on toast points. All fabulous dishes, but the favorite was the crab.For hot appetizers we had the bacon wrapped dates, grilled squid, artichokes with vegetables in a tomato sauce, and the beef tenderloin with horseradish. The beef was so tender and a personal favorite.

    Once again we had an enjoyable evening at Meson Sabika. In the past we have come with our children, but this time we were kidless and came with another couple. Meson Sabika is our "go to" for a great night out with good food and quality sangria. This time did not disappoint.

    For our party of five, Meson Sabika was a real hit! We had four rounds of tapas dishes--all different--and shared them all which meant that we all had tastes of at least twenty different tapas. We chose familiar dishes and dishes that were outside our usual choices and really were not disappointed by any. What a fun evening! Good food, good service, good fun!

    We enjoyed this restaurant over 25 years ago when it was "Willoway Manor". Now that we have returned to the Naperville area we wanted to see how Meson Sabika had changed. It has remained not only the same but even better. Wonderful food, ambiance and great service. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

    We have to Meson Sabika several times. Once again they succeed in providing an excellent experience. The Sangria is fantastic and a great beverage to enjoy the vast array of tapas. The atmosphere is second to none and if your lucky enough to go when the weather is nice the outdoor patio is great. I cannot say enough good about this place. If you live in the Western Suburbs make this a destination to go to, you wont be disappointed. Service is quick, food is great.

    The menu is so extensive, it is hard to make a decision - everything is described so deliciously! Our waiter was very helpful in making suggestions, and making sure that enough plates were ordered to satisfy our hungry group of 8. We all enjoyed each and ever dish we sampled, not a morsel was left on the plates! Despite initial grumbling when a dessert platter was ordered...that too was scraped clean with gusto!
