Best Guacamole and Margaritas
Our server was exceptional. He recommended Guacamole Con Frutas which was the best guacamole I have ever eaten. He also recommended Melon Jalapeno & Strawberry Jalapeno Margaritas which were fantastic! He was very knowledgeable, accommodating & friendly. Love the atmosphere. Craving the guacamole, can't wait to go back!

Beat Mexican around!
We LOVE Mesa! We have been going weekly since they opened and can't seem to get enough! Guacamole is AMAZING, and the food is heavenly! They have excellent service and are very willing to alter the menu, gluten free, leaving off a spicy sauce, etc.

An Easton Gem!
What a pleasant visit, from the moment you set foot in the place, you feel like you are right in thehrt of mexico. My new favorite margarita is the pineapple chile margarita.....the mahi mahi tacos are to die for. The service is exceptional!! the presentation of the plates are espectacular! Overall, Mesa should be the first destination of dining and having good time for anyone who comes to Easton!! I would recomend it to al my firends!!

My husband and I went to Mesa on July 6th on the advice of our son who has been there many times and loves it. Jose 1 R was our server and he was amazing! The food was amazing! The scallops on the scallops tostados melted in my mouth. I raved so much that the lady at a nearby table ordered it! My husband had the ravioli with chicken and he loved it! He was disappointed that we went to a Mexican restaurant and couldn't get a frozen margharita because the machine was broken. There was also a problem with the A/C. The owner (I assume) came over and apologized and explained the situation. Despite these issues, we will be back and will spread the word.
The bench seating with pillows was so comfortable for my bad back.

Great addition to Easton PA!
The food was delicious, creative, not your typical Mexican and portions were very ample. The service was friendly and attentive. Prices are upscale but not too expensive. The tables are quite close together so not the best place for a romantic dinner, but the restaurant has a happy feel to it. Overall it was a very pleasant dining experience and I will be definitely be returning to try other menu selections .

Great tasting fresh mexican
Mesa is a great place to go for pretty looking and very good tasting Mexican food. The margarita pitcher, the guacamole prepared table side & the mahi mahi fish tacos are outstanding.

We went to Mesa for a co-worker's birthday luncheon. The food was superb. Truly. Great flavor all around. The service was professional and not intrusive. And the margaritas were fantastic! No watering down of the tequila, for sure. My only complaint is that most of our party ordered from the prix fixe menu for lunch and got a healthy sized salad and a HUGE wrap or burrito as their second item. I ordered the two tacos, for the same price and my meal was the size of an appetizer. The two tacos, consisted of 2 and 1/2 inch diameter flour tortillas with a tablespoon size dollop of meat on each. While it was spectacularly tasty, it seemed way out of proportion considering the price was the same, as a much heartier meal.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the fact that there are
Love the fact that there are gluten free menu items that are clearly designated. The Melon jalepeno margarita is a delight.

My Favorite place in easton area
This restaurant is absolutely perfect!!! The hostesses and waiters are always friendly and on point! I have been to Mesa 3 times in the past month and a half, two of the three I had Robert as my server and he was excellent. He checked on my date and I several times, there was no waiting with empty glasses or plates. The atmosphere in Mesa is beautiful and romantic, as well as relaxing. I can tell the décor was well planned!. Also...the best part about Mesa, is the FOOD! Perfect portions! Among my favorite foods here, are vegetarian tacos, the salsa and meat guacamole, and lastly I was the first to try the chef's pasta dish which has corn, mushrooms, cheese, and peppers in it. The perfect mixture of flavors!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
New, nice, clean and quality food! Cozy and outdoor seating available too. Very nice will plan to go back. Worth the visit and trip.

Best Mexican Restaurant in LV Area
We had never been to Mesa Modern Mexican before and decided to give it a try during Easton's Restaurant Week and are we glad that we did. The food (Roasted Chicken Roulade and Steak Frites) and drinks (I Love You Margarita) were delicious. The chocolate ice cream with cayenne pepper makes you want more. The service was outstanding. Our waiter Alex was the best. Everyone was so friendly. We felt like we were eating in a restaurant in Mexico. We will definitely be coming back! And bringing our friends with us.
8/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great first impression
The food was excellent. However, if you're looking for fajitas, enchiladas and burritos, this may not be the place for you. They give a mexican "spin" on more traditional dishes. The menu is very interesting and fresh. I would recommend checking it out prior to dining. Overall we had a great experience. LOVED the guacamole make table side!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
fun new restaurant in easton
Mesa Modern has a fun vibe! The drinks were outstanding as was the service! The food was good, but not spectacular. I could have done with more spiciness in my dish. All in all though a really fun evening!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good addition to Easton's scene
Nice improvement over the previous restaurant that was in this space, Good food and value, comfortable, good service and no rush to move you along. Will return!

Excellent food and drink with
Excellent food and drink with a fabulous atmosphere. Never a disappointment.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
$5 margaritas on Monday! Try the strawberry jalapeño one if you like things a little spicy. It was amazing!! Te blood orange and mint was also amazing! Loved the vegetarian tacos, great flavor! The service was a little lacking in terms of timing but overall good service.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Mesa Modern Mexican is inviting with atmosphere and service. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the guacamole, strawberry/jalapeno margarita, and the spicy chocolate cake (forget the name). Enough can not be said about the pleasant experience with colleagues for lunch. I look forward to my next visit!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food - Ok Service
Food and ambiance was amazing. I would have given this restaurant 5 stars for everything however there were a few things that bothered me. We ordered guacamole (delicious!) as our appetizer but within 5 minutes, our entree came out. Didn't really get a chance to enjoy our guac. Secondly, our waiter clearly wanted to get us out of there ASAP. After we were done with our meal we ordered a round of drinks, the waiter asked if he could us anything else, I replyed "not at this moment" and came back with the check. It wasnt a crazy busy night so it's not like there were people waiting. We would have ordered more food and drinks but the rudeness of the waiter deterred us. With all this said, we will return in hopes that we have a different server.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food. Waiter was excellent. Only draw backs were that is was very dim and dark inside and smelled like fish which was a turnoff to my husband
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Winners and Losers
Finally got to try this place after passing by several times. Loved the selection of Margaritas and the Pineapple & Chili one in particular, and need to get back for a pitcher some happy hour in the future. Guacamole made at table side was delicious, if a tad pricy. My Grilled Hanger Steak was perfection. My wife ordered the Roasted Pork Tacos, the trio of which came out beautifully presented, but in such a way that allowed the juices to render the underlying soft tortillas absolutely unhandleable (is that a word?). They tasted amazing, but don't call it a taco if you can't pick it up. We asked about it and they simply said that this is the way they came. Disappointing response, but we'll be back for something else.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing modern mexican
This is mexican food reinvented. A true modern take on some delicious fare, this place has yet to disappoint. Everything from the fresh chips and salsa served complimentary, to their legendary guacamole, to their enticing reinterpretations of a margarita leaves you wanting more, more, more. The entrees themselves are simply divine -- some of the best food in the valley!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The dining area around the bar is very noisy, especially when the band arrives. In the back they have a room, a conversation haven, that serves to take you out of the crowd's reverie and make conversation possible
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was exquisite!
We are foodies. We eat out a lot, at some of the best restaurants. This is a gem. Food was plated like some of my favorite cookbooks written by the best chefs and we ooh'd and ahh'd with every bite! I had Seared Shrimp and Scallops over Lobster Ravioli. My husband had the Roasted Chicken Roulade--the sauce was wonderful! The fresh salsa was great and the margarita's a wee bit strong. But can't wait to take the rest of the family back! It will be soon.

Mesa Modern Mexican
Over all, place was a good choice. This was the first time that we tried Mesa and we both agreed that we would come back. Dinning room was a little noisy and a party of six compounded the noise level. Food was a little pricey for mexican but it was made up for by quality. I always pride a restaurant if I don't need to use salt or pepper while eating. Flavor of the bacon wrapped tenderlion was spot on and delicious. The miss's got a margarita on the rocks which was one of the best she ever had. I would definitely recommend to anyone. Just try to avoid the rush. Loud atmosphere can easily ruin a first time experience.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent guacamole will fill you up but leave you happy. Frozen margaritas also quite tasty and go well with the chips. If you leave room, the tacos, quesadillas on the appetizer menu will be enough and are also quite tasty. If ambitious and need some leftoffers, the main dishes are creative, fresh, and spicy.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife received a gift card to Mesa so we have it a try after hearing all the great reviews... Sadly we were disappointed. I can't express how disappointed I was in the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce.. The chicken was not good and the mole sauce was more like Hershey's syrup poured over everything. My wife had the 3 scallop tacos. They were very tasty, but they were actually 3 scallop nachos, not Tacos. Our server, Dane(?) Was awesome! He treated us great and was very attentive. Anything we needed he took care of and any questions we had he answered. The hostess and manager were also excellent.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been in the restaurant business for over 15 years and I came to this restaurant Saturday night for the first time. Our table was ready as soon as we walked in, the service was great, and the food was delicious.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
What more can I say? The food here is perfection. We've been here for brunch and lunch so far. For brunch I had the eggs Benedict and what a unique way of preparation they have. I've gotta say, best I've ever had. And the potatoes, also delicious. And the extensive margarita menu, I could go on and on. You have to try this place!

A great restaurant in Easton, PA
We went on a busy Friday night and were seated right away at our reservation time. The service was attentive, even though the place was packed. The food - especially the guacamole was superb! It is prepared tableside, and is the best we've tasted. The menu is not your usual Mexican fare, The soups, appetizers and main dishes are inspired and show creativity in the kitchen. And the food is delicious. The bar was crowded, so the noise level was a bit high, though not unexpected for the number of people. We've eaten there at other times, and it was quiet. All in all, it was a great dining experience.
Easton has a number of really good restaurants, and Mesa is right up there with the best. We'll be back.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmosphere and food..
Mesa offered a wonderful evening dining experience with great food, service, and a unique take on appetizers..
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Option for a Good Lunch
We went to the restaurant after a tour of the Crayola Factory. The service is great, very friendly and patient (we had 2 noisy hyper-excited and tiered kids with us)
the food selection was good, even for vegetarians.
The only complaint was that the portions were pretty small, (almost European) but was very tasty.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The guac is amazing.
Went here for a small work dinner. We ordered the guac with chorizo to share - it was incredible. It was freshly made and a generous portion. Since we went on a Monday, they had margarita specials - what a neat list of flavors! The meals were good too - the menu isn't huge, but there is something for everyone. It reminded me of Tapas on Main in Bethlehem and I found out it was the same owner. Cheers to you, running two excellent restaurants in the Lehigh Valley, fit for foodies but not overpriced. I will definitely be back to Mesa Modern!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go for guac
Guacamole doesn't get better than this. Good margaritas too. Not much room for much after all those chips so the lobster quesadillas were tasty but not too filing.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent along with good service. We are never disappointed going to Mesa!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely will be back
My husband and I decided to try this restaurant after trying their other restaurant, Tapas on Main, in Bethlehem. We were very pleased with our experience. The food was delicious. We shared an appetizer of carne assada quesadillas, which were amazing. My husband stuck to bottled beer but I tried the mango margarita, which was fabulous. My husband had the seared scallops and shirmp over lobster ravioli while I enjoyed the mexican ravioli, which we both absolutely loved. The decor of the restaurant is fun with a great vibe for a Saturday evening. The service was great. Reservations were super easy with the open table feature on the website. Our waitress was quick with refills and very attentive. We'll definitely be back.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love that Guacamole!
Grreat food--guacamole could be a meal in itself. Great drinks. Bean and sweet potato enchiladas were good and unusual. Unfortunately, main course took some time and was cool instead of hot. Salsa was watery. Overall, though, the atmosphere was lovely and the food tasty. Totally worth future visits.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great as always!
Food is always good, great drinks! Would recommend to anyone visiting Easton.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious margaritas, great atmosphere, fantastic food! This was our first visit to Mesa and we would definitely go back and recommend it to others!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not your average Mexican Cuisine
Great choices from drinks, appetizers to entrees. (We never got to dessert) WIth specials too! Guacamole prepared fresh at your table. Spiced to your preferred heat level. Presentation and quality support price.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The place to go if you're
The place to go if you're looking for delicious Mexican food in the Lehigh Valley. Great list of margaritas and interesting twists on guacamole. A variety options to try on the menu and a friendly wait staff would definitely bring me back again.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
food was great, hot guac was amazing! strawberry nd melon jalapeño margaritas were THE BEST!!!!'
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've been wanting to try this restaurant since they opened. I had only heard wonderful things. My husband and I needed a night out so I made a reservation on Open Table. We loved it! The atmosphere is great. The staff are very nice and helpful. The guacamole was the BEST I ever had. My husband tried it for the 1st time and LOVED it. I had the enchilladas and they were amazing. We will definately be back!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the service to the excellent food I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. The guacamole with chorizo was excellent! Port Tenderloin wrapped in bacon also was one of the best things I've eaten for dinner in some time.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Ambience. Guacomole is supreme. Impressive spot for visiting friends and family.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
I do like this place
My ratings are a little lower than before -but I really like this place and want it to do well. There is a lack of good restaurants in this area and this is a good one. It can be a great one. The receptionist (the mature blonde woman is fantastic -great way with customers-makes you feel valued). The waitress was very nice. It took too long to get our food and when it came out it was cold. This needs to be worked on. Due to the small size of the tacos -they need to come out as soon as they are made. Little tweaks will make this a great place. I will continue to go and enjoy it.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and servcie
Mesa is a great restaurant. The guacamole was terrific and the dishes were great. We shared a guacamole and had an appetizer each, which was filling enough. The service was excellent - waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and the food came quickly. We ate in the Tequila room which was a little quieter than the main dining room. We returned for a drink after going to the State Theater and the place was hopping. Loved the whole experience.
