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
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "I remember going to Meson Sabika 10 years ago and the food was as good as the atmosphere. This is sadly no longer the case. We thought the service was outstanding (our server was Steve and he did a fantastic job, and the busboys were extremely attentive....they couldn't have been better). Unfortunately, we weren't tourists from Nebraska with no tastebuds. While it's a pretty place, the food and beverages were simply horrible. We ordered a few tapas to go with the Paella Mariscos and it was all dry and flavorless. The Red Sangria was the worst I've ever had....someone rushed it out into service LONG before it was ready....with a bland, almost bitter taste The dessert pastry was as hard as a rock instead of light and flaky."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!!:-)"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "This time we got the restaurant week menu. I was surprised at the variety and quality for $35 each. Many restaurant week menus are lacking, not this one. You can come to Meson frequently and each time have a different food experience given the number of tappas they offer. Plus the atmosphere is different inside vs. the veranda vs. the patio. The wines are wonderful too."

  • "I've lived in the Naperville area for nearly two decades, and my family and friends have been coming here every since. It's a Naperville Staple, and i'm quite proud to have such an illustrious restaurant in my town! Amazing location, fantastic service, and of course exceptional food. I could try recommending specific dishes, but they're honestly all quite amazing! The Paella, however, is an absolute must! Sangria lovers will also appreciate the selection that's offered here! All in all, a phenomenal experience!"

We could not have been happier. Our server Jennifer was wonderful. She explained everything as far as how they do things and made recommendations and was wonderful overall. The wine we had was great and the food was fantastic. Will definitely return."

  • "2nd visit this week. This was better than the last visit. Learned my lesson to never order more than 2 tapas at a time, as they will all come out at once & get cold and clutter your table. It is a much better pace to the meal and more relaxing and enjoyable. It is also more easy to digest your food when you order 2 at a time. The 2 of us ordered 6 tapas & a bottle of wine, so you need to pace that to enjoy it, which we did. A much better experience."

  • "I always wanted to go to your restaurant as ivapervillee lived in Naperville and id always see the restaurant I took my sister in law and nephew for lunch was really great never had tapas all my nephew could say was mmmmmm this is really good he said he wants to come back for his birthday I will come back also with another friend who has a birthday now also liked the non alcoholic Sangria we shared a pitcher. So glad I thought of Tapas as a treat Ill be back."

  • "I can't say enough positive things about Meson Sabika! We came all the way from Washington state to eat here (just a slight exaggeration!). We were last here about 15-20 years ago & still remembered our meal so fondly, we made sure to revisit on this trip. We weren't disappointed. The food was just as delicious as we remembered, and the presentation is top-notch. Hopefully, we won't have to wait that long to dine here again - certainly wish we lived closer. Maybe you should think about opening a "branch" in the Pacific Northwest! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience."
