This restaurant is our favorite for the delicious Cuban food and the fabulous tapas. The service is very good and efficient.
We came to celebrate a special occasion but this is also fantastic for everyday dining.
The restaurant is good as well as the food. Everything started with the parking. It is a busy street, and there was a valet/self parking fee of $5. The price is not the problem, if you go to a fine restaurant you are expected to pay for parking. The issue was with the guys in the parking place. I felt he was more worried about his $5 than to offer us the facility to park. The he was on front of the car thinking I was going to run away without paying. Not a friendly guy for sure. I didn't want to make a big deal of it, so we wouldn't ruin the evening.
The menu is good, with variety to choose from. They charge $5 to split and 20% tip for parties or 6 or more people. You gladly give 20% for good service, but I didn't feel it was nice to impose a tip. The we asked if they would offer bread or chips, and the waitress responded that if you ask for it, than yes, because some people leave it on the table. Come on, a restaurant of this category worried about chips!!
They should pay more attention to customer service. Food was very good, but little details like this don't make you feel welcome and there are plenty more restaurants in Houston to choose from. Don't let the name of the restaurant fell you control the market.
We've always enjoyed El Meson but the food, ambiance and service seem to get better and better.
We came to dine in for our anniversary. Food was outstanding like always. Our server that evening I believe it was Armando he was excellent. We will be back soon. Thanks
The restaurant staff is very customer service oriented, and the food is delicious!
Great food and outstanding service makes us come back to this place. It’s like having a great meal with friends
I wish I had better things to say about her visit. Food just wasn’t very good, from the chips and salsa to the point believe it tasted like Lucky charms. We just were please with her meal at all.
The paella de la Tierra was nicely done
El Meson has great Paella, and having a husband who's family is from Spain, they love a good Paella! The kids were able to also order what they wanted, so everyone was very happy with their dinner.
Paella was second rate and overpriced.. Rice was dry and seafood was not fresh and lacking in quantity.
bean soup and gazpacho were excellent. Salad and bread were very good. Service was outstanding.
