Diner Reviews
  • "Waiter was not attentive. He asked if it was out first time at Meson, and when we said yes, he just gave us the menus and explained NOTHING. We are new to Naperville and this was our first night out for dinner at a restaurant that came highly recommended. Unfortunately, we were a little disappointed."

  • "Took my girlfriend out for her birthday. It was her first visit there. We ate outside under the veranda. The ambience was perfect and the weather was absolutely gorgeous that night. The waiter was very attentive offering many of his favorites, which we greatly appreciated. The food was very different from what we are used to, but so delicious! The sauces, while not overly abundant, really made the dishes stand out. Also the desserts were out of this world! My only complaint, and this is just me, is that the noise level was quite high mainly due to the table clean-up crew. All in all, we had a wonderful dinner in a beautiful outdoor setting. A must to try!"

  • "Our server was attentive when needed but allowed us to dine at our own pace. Food was consistently delicious and easily shared among three diners. No complaints whatsoever."

  • "Mesón Sabika is always a great place to eat in the beautiful weather on the patio. I am there all the time. This is the first time I used open table to get a last minute reservation, and was able to get a table. Sometimes, when I have called, I can't get a table unless it is super early or late, and even though I am a regular. My only issue is it took too long to bring wine to the table. Then when the tapas come, they all come at once. The waiter poured one cup of coffee and put the bill down. He grabbed the bill before I even looked at it. They need to slow down-it was already late & there were open tables."

  • "I have eaten here before on a weekday and the food was much much better than on Saturday. Saturday the restaurant was completely booked. We did not wait long for our table but we waited long for our food. When it finally came, the bacon wrapped dates were burnt, the tiger shrimp was very overcooked and rubbery. This is an expensive restaurant and not worth the money to eat overcooked food. During the week, when it was not so busy the food was fantastic."

  • "We went to Meson Sabika for our anniversary. We had the best server! We ordered everything from exotic, comfort, cold, hot, and unknown. Loved every single bite! Perfection! It's going to be our new anniversary tradition...and every special occasion in between (and random stops too)!"

  • "In from out of town and had the most wonderful night here. Food is great, tapas style. Had a delicious wine flight. Service was top notch and the outdoor patio ambience cannot be beat."

  • "I don't travel all that much, but have been lucky to eat at some good places in Spain, D.C. and Chicago. It was surreal to eat the best Spanish food of my life in Naperville. I live 1.5 hours away and I will be going back again with my wife in a week."

  • "This restaurant is a must for those special occasions. The food is great, consistent everytime we vistit. You need to have plenty of time to enjoy this type of tapas dining. It's a night out on it's own. Wait staff is attentive without going overboard."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I enjoyed this place. The food ordered was all well-crafted and had good flavors, even if I didn't care for every dish. The service from our server was poor, however. It took forever for him to come back, unless we were supposed to operate under "Spanish" rules for service instead of "American." I also was surprised at the smell inside this restaurant--you can definitely tell that it's an old house, which is unfortunate for what would otherwise be a nice dining establishment."

  • "I've been to Meson Sabika many times in my 15 years in Naperville, and I've always been completely satisfied with the food, ambiance, and service."

  • "I had my family in-town and we ate outside at Meson Sabika on the patio. Although it was unseasonably cool for mid-July, the patio is always the best ambiance for outdoor dining in Naperville. There were five of us and I believe we ordered six hot tapas dishes plus four desserts and they all were excellent for fun pass-around food."

  • "Weather was perfect, food was great; love the garlic potato salad, skirt steak with cheese/onions, dates wrapped in bacon, vanilla custard w/chocolate, sangria. Been here many times before and the food and service is always consistent. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in the Western burbs!"

  • "The kitchen opens to the host stand which is sandwiched between two "dining" rooms. Everyone was basically yelling over one another. It felt like a cafeteria. Tried 3 tapas which arrived hot but were each a little off with the sauce or accompaniment. Prices steep for quality and portion. It's been a long time since I've been so disappointed in a restaurant."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food, wine, service - all outstanding. Great experience. Wish we could have been on outside patio - that's even better. It was raining so they moved us inside. Highly recommend it."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "As usual, we had a wonderful meal. However, the noise level was so high we couldn't carry on a normal conversation. We were inundated by the loud conversations from other tables. Also we were surprised at the way some of the guests were dressed. Some looked like they had just finished playing a football game. Shorts, sandals, and tank tops on men is not a good look at a "nice" restaurant. I can no longer recommend Meson Sabika."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I had just been to Girl and the Goat for small plates and was surprised to be so disappointed. Still had a taste for tapas so I headed here. Was definitely not disappointed. Superb!"

  • "My wife and I selected Meson Sabika to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had a great dining experience! This was our second visit. Despite clouds and a few drops of rain, we dined on the patio which is beautiful, relaxing yet full of atmosphere and activity. Great people watching! The items we selected from the small plate menu were exceptional and the service outstanding! Despite a minor mishap with one item, our server Steve and the management could not have been more than attentive and accommodating to overcome the issue checking on us throughout the remainder of our dinner to ensure the rest of our experience was nothing but enjoyable. We will definitely be returning to Meson Sabika as it is now one of our favorites in Naperville."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The foods really good. The service is great and the food comes out fast. It ends up being more expensive for a couple than if you go in a group of 6 or more because the portions are to big for a couple to share all that you would want to try. With a large group you can get a little taste of everything and not over order."

  • "Had dinner at Meson Sabika on Friday evening with 3 of my friends and the food was great as was our server Michael- he gave us great suggestions from the cold and hot tapas menu and was extremely attentive all evening!"

  • "From the moment they sat down my family told me their experience was fantastic. They loved all the food choices and the fact they could share. The attention to service was a "10." They never felt rushed and even received a birthday pastry which was very unexpected."

  • "We were at meson celebrating a friends birthday and were immediately seated on their beautiful patio. We waited quite awhile before our waiter approached us. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine we had for dinner but the service was really quite poor. Also, we had told several people that it was our friends birthday and we thought they would bring a little candle out with our desserts but they didn't. We could have reminded them again but were a little fed up by that point. It was very difficult to find our waiter, too!"

  • "If you want an awesome dining experience, go to Meson Sabika! The ambience of this stately mansion, along with great food and service, makes for a memorable outing. Their Sunday brunch includes all the favorite hot and cold tapas dishes, along with an amazing assortment of fruit, made to order omelettes and champagne or mamosa and other beverages. Their outdoor patio is beautiful! Love going here for lunch, dinner and brunch!"

  • "We were greeted by friendly and gracious staff at the door that took our request for outdoor seating without hesitation. Our server, Gio, was polite and attentive. Initially, a menu was presented to select an individually prepared entree. We chose the eggs Benedict that had with a velvety sauce. The hot tapas buffet included chicken and beef entrees, and a seafood paella all seasoned to perfection. The carving station served a tender prime rib of beef. The cold buffet displayed plates of tasty smoked salmon, various salads, crisp asparagus, bowls of fresh ripe raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries, and a variety of melons, dried fruits and nuts. Chocolate terrine with raspberry sauce completed our dining experience. Kudos to the chef!"
