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.

    Meson Sabika is great for groups, or romantic dates for two. There are a LOT of food options - great for meat lovers and vegetarians! I highly recommend this restaurant. The outdoor patio is beautiful and warm evenings, and the restaurant has lots of rooms to accommodate lots of guests.

    This wonderful old mansion is a gem, The rooms have been transformed into dining venues, so you are never aware of how many guests there are. The server was knowledgable about the various tapas and his recommendations were spot on. Our party of five enjoyed sharing the dishes and loved every one. Prices are fair, ambience vibrant, all great. Highly recommend!

    This was my second trip to Meson Sabika and it was as delightful as the first. Each cold and hot entree is carefully prepared and beautifully presented. My table mates were astonished by how much they liked the bacon wrapped dates. Cold and hot chicken dishes shine. We ordered a second round of the peppered beef skewers because they are so tender and delicious. We had a nice moderately priced bottle of red wine which complemented the dinners, but there are wonderful flavored white and red sangrias on the menu. We ended with the hot caramel banana and the chocolate hazelnut tart--both simply wonderful. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Happily, there are many more small plates, as well as salads, paellas and large entrees to try.

    My wife and I went out to celebrate her work promotion. The property this resturant sits on is beautiful and the outdoor seating is wonderful. The food is great. The server,however, left something to be desired. He was busy, and we didn't mind slightly slower service, what we did mind was his continued winking at my wife and then calling me sweetheart when I paid for the bill. It's a super huge pet peeve of mine when men call women sweetheart or any other pet name. I don't know you and you've been winking at my wife all night, and then you're calling me sweetheart. Although we like the resturant and know servers change, we most likely won't be back.

    Known as a tapas restaurant, but one of the best in the Chicago area. Menu has quite a few items so it helps if you have more people to try all the different dishes. You will leave full, but still wanting to order more just to try the different items. Not one disappointing dish - all were very good and a good mix of seafood and meats. Even some spicy dishes for the more adventurous.

    My wife and I go here all the time for special occasions. The food is excellent and the servers are always exceptional. If you go here, find a nice day and sit outside. The patio has a great feel to it lined with old trees separating it from civilization and fresh gardening to add almost a wedding environment. It's sure to make your visit feel special. The only negative feedback I would give this restaurant would be towards to hostess station and the interior seating. The hostesses have never impressed me and always seem overwhelmed. The interior of the home is nice and rich with history, but if you eat inside, count on a lot of background noise. Overall, if you haven't made it here, do yourself a favor and give it a shot. It's worth it!

    We have visited Meson Sabika many times in the past. Our youngest daughter had her small wedding reception there a number of years ago and we were thrilled when she choose it. When we visited this time we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. I did mention this in my reservation and we were treated to a toast of champagne We had a cousin with us. She was very impressed with the setting and the food that was delicious. The waiter helped us choose a bottle of white wine that was reasonable and excellent We definitely go back.

    The menu at Mason Sabika is quite extensive. The two of us at dinner each had a cold and hot tapas. It was more than enough food for a filing dinner. The portions are reasonably generous and filling. Service was fantastic and the wait staff is excellently trained. They know the items on the menu and are always willing to explain every dish in detail. My total bill, with tip, was $55.00. An unbelievable value and a great place to dine. Mason Sabika gets crowded on the weekend so reservations are a must. There are a lot of groups, weddings, etc so definitely reserve ahead of time.

    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.
