To many tablesLove your place, but you have to many tables in the rooms. Not much privacy, hard to move. Especially during buffet ( went there for Mother's day ), when we need to walk to buffet. And the waiters walking between tables with those big overfilled trails...scary!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SangriaMson Sabika is a classic tapas restaurant with great red sangria! Great for a group, being able to order different things and try a little of each. Our waiter was great in directing us to which items to order. Our favorites were the goat cheese with red sauce and toast as well as the beef with caramelized onions and horseradish sauce. YUM!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!We've been here just a few times, but as always, the service, food and scenery was wonderful. We were seated in an upstairs room and it was still really great service. Food was great - everything I've tried here has always been really solid. And portions sized plenty for 4 people to have a taste of everything.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and phenomenalFantastic food and phenomenal watiers! A memorable time was had by all. We will return.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to go with friendsMeson Sabika is one of our favorite places in Naperville. We love tapas style dining. You can try so many different items and everyone gets a taste. We always bring out of town guests there for a special time.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat choiceJust being inside or on the grounds of this mansion is a treat. Many tapas choices, most reasonably priced, and easy to share. Chocolate cake dessert is worth a visit here. Service was great. Easy to find in Naperville, and plenty of parking. Go for a special occasion, or just go for the fun of it.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful NIght!We enjoyed another fine dinner at Meson Sabika! Took an out of town business guest there for dinner and he enjoyed it very much.
Highlights were the scallops, the cubed potatoes, the empanada and the eggplant. All the dishes were great though. The servers were very helpful with selecting wine by the glass and the sangria was good as usual.
We will return with pleasure.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRan out of wineGreat restaurant in terms of food and service. Waitress enthusiastically recommended a red wine which we gladly ordered. She quickly returned to inform us they had run out of that wine. The 2nd suggestions was outstanding! Just be careful when recommending certain wines.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't go wrongMeson Sabika has been a place we have frequented for years, although somehow its easy for us to forget when planning a night out (not their fault). Small plates/Tapas style, everything has great flavor and can satisfy meat/fish/vegetarian eaters alike. I don't enjoy so much going with others due to the "order a plate and share with everyone" (I am an only child), however with my wife its fine, we have our favorites we don't share, and experiment with new things we haven't tried. There was one knockout dish of sautéed octopus in a vinaigrette that was incredible, we do not care for fried Calamari so this was a treat. Do not expect to walk in on a Friday or Saturday night, secure the reservation.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDoesn't Get Much BetterMason Sabika is a wonderful place for creative tapas. The building is an old mansion, built in 1847, then renovated and opened it's doors in 1990 and the ambiance is fabulous. The food is top-notch and the service great (would've given it five stars but while plates were cleared quickly and our dishes brought immediately, didn't understand why we had to beg for replacement of water and drinks. Am bringing my family back for the Sunday brunch on Mother's Day. Looking forward to sharing this experience. The noise level was high, which felt odd given the very beautiful and serene environment of this beautiful location.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!When you go to Meson Sabika, you can enjoy the guitarist and dancer with a lively night crowd, or go to the best breakfast buffet on Sunday with an energetic crowd, or go to a quiet romantic dinner on Sunday. No matter what day and time you go, the food, service, and ambiance is outstanding. This is my family's favorite restaurant. We have never been disappointed.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, this is one ofAs always, this is one of our favorite places to eat when visiting Naperville or the Chicago Suburb area.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my parents here forI took my parents here for their 52nd Wedding Anniversary and they Loved it. Very friendly hostess and server.
I requested to be seated on the main floor due to my Mom having difficulty with stairs and we were.
I myself have been here several times and always look forward to coming back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is just awesome SpanishThis is just awesome Spanish food. It is just like going to Spain except you sit at tables for the tapas and in Spain you bar hop. The food is superb. The grilled calamares are exceptional. The paella valenciana is more flavorful than the more pricey choice.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat paella, lamb chops andgreat paella, lamb chops and dessert, Geo and all staff did amazing job4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHave only had brunch severalHave only had brunch several times and a wedding here. Don't know about nights, wine or lunch. Brunch - the food was great. Service great. but they try to serve as many people as they can and it gets crowded. Kind of loud as well. Long line at buffet moves quickly, always full dishes well maintained, clean, full. Lots of options for the foodies and food shy.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second time atThis was my second time at Meson Sabika, with an experience quite like the first. Every Tapas Dish tasted delicious and service was quick and attentive. The small rooms are a bit noisy but I think it is part of the allure of the old mansion that has been converted into a beautiful dining experience.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving a reservation led usHaving a reservation led us to being immediately seated in the restaurant. With the restaurant being in a home/mansion from the 1850s, the ambiance is cute and quaint. It is as if you were invited over for dinner at the home.
Our waiter was attentive and knowledgable in explaining certain tapas dishes beyond the description included in the menu. There was a generous selection of cold and hot tapas. We didn't feel rushed to order everything all at once, nor pressured to finishing our food quickly. It was a relaxing experience.
The red sangria was pretty fanstastic. It was fruity, flavorful and you felt the kick of the alcohol without it being too overwhelming in each sip.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpanish RomanticI was very impressed with the delicious variety of food that was served. The combination of flavors just has to be experienced. Our waiter was efficient and had great customer service skills. The ambiance was so very Spanish romantic. Outstanding in every way!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything is always perfect!Everything is always perfect! My favorite restaurant!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spanish Tapas!!!My husband and I used to go to this restaurant all the time when we lived in Chicago. Now, we make sure to schedule at least one dinner when we go back. Although our kids are young (2 & 6), they really enjoy trying the different tapas. I especially love the patio for al fresco dining when the weather is nice. However, we only get the tapas since we make a more flavorful authentic paella at home.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best places I knowOne of the best places I know of! Tapas, Sangria great service and a great environment. Later on Friday and Saturday evenings they have Spanish Castañeta performers also.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the first time IThis was the first time I was there and I would highly recommend it!! Food was excellent, staff was great and the ambiance had such a Spanish feel. My wife and I will definitely go back again.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHave been here before andHave been here before and will be back again, great food and service.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe tried a wide variety ofWe tried a wide variety of tapas that pleased our whole party (adults, teenagers, vegetarians). The wine suggested by our server was wonderful. It seems clear they are not strangers to larger parties, and we were accommodated nicely. For once, the dessert menu was not an afterthought! There were 10-12 selections, and I believe we tried 5 of them. ALL EXCELLENT!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at Meson SabikaWe have eaten at Meson Sabika perhaps 8-10 times. It is fun to try different dishes. It is the only Spanish restaurant that I'm aware of in the area. They have quite a varied selection. It is a fun place to bring other people and try dishes you will not find anywhere else. The quality of the food is high and I think the value for the price is excellent. You can go away very satisfied for a very reasonable price. Another thing I like is the consistency. We have never had less than a delicious meal. It is always very good. To sum up a fun, consistent, different, and delicious alternative to the usual restaurant suspects.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit toThis was my first visit to Meson Sabika and I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of the meal. First off, the building itself, a 150 year old mansion, is incredibly charming and beautiful. The wait staff are courteous and helpful, and the food was simply delicious.
Highly recommended.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant serviceGood atmosphere and very accommodating. The host and server took care of us on our special occasion and made it a memorable one. After living in Spain for a couple years, I had high hopes of finding good tapas at the restaurant. While it was good, it just wasn't the same as in Spain.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Easter Brunch in the W SuburbsWe have made Meson Sabika's Easter Brunch a family tradition. Wonderful dining experience for adults and kids. The servers are always very nice and the food simply wonderful. Such variety and beautifully presented. There is no place we'd rather be after church on Easter Sunday.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHostess and wait staff wereHostess and wait staff were very friendly. Nice place for an Easter brunch. Easter Bunny and egg hunt for the kids was a nice added feature. Good food, with a nice variety for a brunch3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tapas selection was excellent.The tapas selection was excellent. All of the dishes we selected were very well prepared and presented. We arrived early before the crowds and the noise. Tables were crowded into the room. We recommend dining early in the evening to avoid the crowded conditions and the noise.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHave eaten here many manyHave eaten here many many times..........NEVER unhappy!! GREAT place that my friends always rave about after we take them.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved itHad a wonderful time. Our server Salvador was excellent. Timing of the courses was just right. We went in on a friday night and ate upstairs. The place was busy, but even though we were right in the middle of the room, I was only focused on what was happening at our table. We had the salad with beets, and a cold crab toast to start. Warm shrimp, and the bacon wrapped dates second. Duck and chicken third. Bananas and a brulee for dessert. 8 dishes total for the two of us. It was just right. A nice sampling of food. Not too much, not overpriced. Afterward, I ordered another bacon wrapped dates to go, and had them for lunch the next day.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second trip toThis was my second trip to Meson Sabika and I was really impressed with the consistent quality. I very much liked the food and the restaurant is beautiful.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great. TheEverything was great. The food was delicious and well presented with a huge variety. Staff was friendly and attentive. There were 5 of us and the cost worked out to $35 per person(a bargain for what we got). I would recommend this Meson Sabika to anyone wanting a night out with good food and pleasant atmosphere.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMShort of traveling to Spain,thisShort of traveling to Spain,this is the best food on this continen3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is simply amazing.The food is simply amazing. We ordered 10 different plates and there was no way to determine which was our favorite. Our server was great. She was energetic and helpful and appeared to really enjoy what she was doing. We will definately be going back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGiven how many great tapasGiven how many great tapas places there are in the city, Meson Sabika really impresses. The menu has 30+ dishes to choose from and the food is very satisfying. We especially enjoyed the attentive service which is on par with the best restaurants in the city. When you leave, the bill for two is closer to $100 when you might spend double that for a similar experience in Chicago. This is a place we'll return to many times and will share with out-of-town guests.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time weThis is the second time we have eaten at Meson Sabika. The first time was in the summer outdoors and recently in one of the dining rooms. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Each time we were with different guests and each time everyone enjoyed themselves. It is about an hour drive but we will certainly be back.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Meson Sabika's brunch. The food was delicious and beautifully arrayed. We would go again in a heartbeat.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, Meson Sabika providedAs always, Meson Sabika provided a wonderful dining experience for us as we celebrated my brother's 50th birthday. While a couple can have a great meal, it is even more fun with a group of people. Especially, if the people are not picky, fussy eaters who won't try anything even slightly different. The food is not really crazy or anything, it's regular food that's prepared in the Spanish(not Mexican!), small plates style so you can try a lot of different things. For the first time, I tried the white sangria. It was a very refreshing and tasty twist on traditional sangria. I have never had a bad meal or a bad time at this restaurant.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food,Great Service!I have been to Meson Sabika many times with friends and family. This evening didn't dissapoint. The service all around was amazing, food and drinks were always served quickly. It's a very fun place and the food is always amazing!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMYummmmmmWaitress was awesome and the food is wonderful as well! You can always count on Mason Sabika to live up to your expectations!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very happy that theyWe were very happy that they were quick to point out vegetarian items, and what other items could be made vegetarian. Music and dancer made it a different evening out3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI would like background spanishI would like background spanish music while no show going on.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Good selectionFood was great. Good selection too. Busboys and waiter were outstanding. Good wine lIst, cocktails and after dinner drinks. Will go back and am happy to recommend.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed my experienceReally enjoyed my experience there, went for a family members' birthday and found the food to be much better than most of the other places I have been to in the suburbs. Definitely ranks up there with the places I have been to in Chicago. The flamenco music and dancer was especially a nice touch and really added to the atmosphere.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food!The food was wonderful as usual, and service was perfect, but our table was too close to the next table. We had to make sure nothing was close to the edge of our table because it was impossible for waitstaff to get by without brushing up against our table. I won't agree to be seated there again!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMeson Sabika is a great diningMeson Sabika is a great dining experience if you want to share a number of excellent dishes with others in a group. Oven baked goat cheese with garlic toast is my personal favorite. Great to have a Tapas style meal to encourage open discussions at your table.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!We have been coming to Meson Sabika for several years now and to food has never been a disappointment. Our server did a great job helping us with the wine list and we couldn't have been happier with the selection.
Thank you for continuing to impress us each visit.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
