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
  • "Never fails us. Amazing meal once again. We'll be back MS . . .again and again. Tried new things on the menu this time . . all amazing (but no surprise there). I'd post more about each one, but you need to go there to experience them yourself. You won't be disappointed I assure you."

  • "This is my favorite restaurant. We live about 45 minutes away and try to get there 5-6 times a year. This was the first time we brought two of our kids and they loved it too. A lot of variety, and I had no idea there was a kids menu. Our daughter had the chicken breast with mashed potatoes. It was huge and came with mixed fruit. An unexpected surprise because I was concerned she wouldn't eat anything off the regular menu. Food is always tasty, service is always outstanding, and the mansion is beautiful."

  • "Make sure to get a reservation, and plan on having fun while enjoying great food. The the ambiance borders on the chaotic, but don't let that throw you off. Once seated, your dining experience quickly transforms to just you and the people at your table. Let the waiter lead you through the menu. Order in 'waves' and take your time to enjoy all of the food. It really is a special dining experience."

  • "This restaurant is one of our family's favorite for special occasions. Food is always flavorful and memorable. The calamari was perfectly tender and moist and the chorizo had a perfect blend of spice, and not greasy. Service was timely and genuinely pleasant. Our waitress was topnotch. Our multi-generational table had a wonderful time. Would prefer a round table instead of a long rectangle for a small group."

  • "Meson sebika has never disappointed and this was no different. We have the beef and the chicken skewers, both were delicious! The potatoes and mushroom caps were also amazing and the baked goat cheese keeps us coming back! Everything is delicious and surprising the white wine sangria was awesome-- I'm not usually a sangria person. The reservation was prompt, we barely waited although the place was packed. Highly recommend!"

  • "Enjoy the food and atmosphere. Have dined many time here and will come again. This was a Saturday night 8pm seating and we did have a 20-30 minute wait and it was quite loud for some time. Always a fun place to dine and try new food but some areas of the house are difficult to have a conversation."

  • "Meson Sabika is absolutely wonderful. Ever since our daughter's wedding in 2007 (which was absolutely phenomenal!), we have been returning for dinner. Inside or out, the service is great, the ambience is great, & the food is spectacular. We have NEVER had anything that was bad. All our experiences have been superb. We love Meson Sabika!!!"

  • "Although we greatly enjoyed our dining experience the room was VERY lous when we arrives, and the place was full. It was a bit distraction. Once a number of tables left, it was more enjoyable. Steve, or server was great. Orfdering small plates and sharing and tasting, and trying new items makes for a very unique dining experience and a nice change when dining out with friends!!"

  • "This is one of my favorite restaurants in the suburbs. The food and service are always top notch. We were able to get a Saturday night reservation at the last minute through Open Table. Although the place was busy, we never felt rushed. This is one of my favorite things about Meson Sabika. They adhere to the tapas tradition and let their guests sample from the menu at their own pace. Wonderful!"

  • "We had 6:30 PM dinner reservations on Saturday night - arrived at 5:45 and were immediately seated in the beautiful main dining room. Our waiter was Adrian, very professional, charming and efficient. Our food was absolutely delicious - had the Grilled Squid, the Mushroom caps, the Duck Confit and Roasted Peppers -all prepared to perfection! Along with some wine it was a super great meal! By the time we left it was packed with a lively ambiance but you could still easily converse. We have come to Meson Sabika for many years - love it always! Great ambiance - cozy in the winter inside; especially enjoy the fireplace then - delightful in the summer, sitting outside in their gorgeous garden setting. One of our alltime favorite restaurants!"

  • "We had another amazing evening of fun at Meson. It is always a fun time for newcomers and return Diners as well. Thank you for the experience and making us feel like we were part of the family. Attentive waitstaff and excellent kitchen crew made it a great dining event. Not a quick meal an experience for the adventurous side of all of us. Thank You"

  • "We often dine at Meson Sabika the food is authentic Spanish cuisine in the form of tapas. We particular;y enjoy the Paella Valenciana with the addition of a lobster tail on top and the red wine sangria. It is more of a formal venue for dinner and located in a beautful mansion with outdoor seating in summer and a separate building for weddings and very large groups. It is a very nice spot to have an intimate dinner for two although sometimes people tend to get very rowdy when there are a lot of them and this spoils the atmosphere and having a conversation is almost impossible. I really don't understand why people in Naperville shout when they are in restaurants it is very rude and inconsiderate but it happens in most restaurants there."

  • "We had brunch here Sunday and it was wonderful! You get to try every hot and cold tapas that you always wanted to but couldn't afford...in a beautiful setting. Absolutely wonderful! It is also wonderful for lunch and dinner and absolutely delicious. Brunch included Mimosas and dessert."

  • "Our kids surprised us with a reservation (pretty great, huh?) and we had a wonderful night out together. As previous diners at Meson Sabika we were ready to explore the menu of wonderful tapas a little more than before. Our server Danny was able to provide some wonderful options to expand the evening for us, and as always the food was superb. We've eaten outdoors before which is the best place when possible - but a cold winter evening in March wasn't the right time! Instead we had a great table in the old dining room, lovely setting and very romantic. We just love this place and make an effort to "find our way" over even if it's not exactly in our travel itinerary - trust me it's worth going out of your way to dine here. Thanks again"

  • "Meson Sabika is a good restaurant with good food, but it does seem a bit too highly of itself. At the end of the day, the staff is knowledgeable, pretty responsive, the food is good and sharing plates is just plain fun. I just get the sense that they think they are haute cuisine, when in fact they're just a competent restaurant in a nice suburb. The bill will be around 50 - 60$ per person including drinks and tip."

  • "An absolutely fantastic array of foods. Many options for those on dietary restrictions, especially those who are gluten free in their diets. Great tasting Spanish tapas, quaint and romantic setting along with very reasonable pricing for a Sunday brunch that includes prime rib carving station and a mimosa. It was my first brunch their, but it certainly won't be my last."

  • "We celebrated our wedding anniversay last weekend and couldn't be more impressed. The staff immediately wished us a happy anniversary. Our waiter attempted to sing anniversary greetings to us and after dinner, two glasses of champagne, a plate of almond cookies and a portofoli (spelling?) with candles was brought to our table! A special notecard wishing us a happy anniversary was included with the bill. Top Notch. Definitely a keeper!"

  • "It was very loud where you needed to nearly shout over the table to speak to your other diner. I asked if they had a quieter area and the floor manager came and said if we ever dined here before and we said many times. She said it was so loud because of the weather. I don't have any idea what that has to do with the loudness the night, We dined on the second floor and it was very loud. When just ate a couple of Tapas and left because of the noise level, yet when we walked downstairs it was much quieter. We probalbly will not go again until they have their outdoor dining area open in the summer time."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Every dish is fantastic and full of bold flavors. They even made a beautiful fruit platter 'healthy choice' special for us which was oh so sweet. If you like dining Tapas style, you won't find a better place to enjoy inside and out!"

  • "This is one of our favorite restraurants and this is the very first time our service was a problem ..... There were three of us and when we finished our meal we all felt rushed;(. We did tell the waitress several times to give us time but the to no avail. The restaurant was not busy so she did not need the table.... Usual we love the relaxed atmosphere, service when you need something but not grabbing plates before we are finished."
