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 the best choice for fabulous food, wonderful service in a spectacular setting. We love the tapas, including the bacon wrapped dates, the goat cheese, and the prickly pear sangria! There are so many choices that you must return to sample more tapas! The tilapia is delicious!

    I've been here several times and my table has always been ready when arrived. The ambiance is great and the food in always prepared to perfection. Reservations are a must if you don't want to wait 2 hours to be seated, but the online reservation link makes it simple. Definitely one of my favorite places to dine.

    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.

    It's good for Naperville, but definitely not as good as tapas places in the city. Jamon Serrano and the red snapper both good; gambas alijillo was awful. Poor quality shrimp. Nice building.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
