Second time there. First for lunch. Service was professional and attentive. Food was slow to arrive. Enjoyed what we ordered but there was something intangible missing this time. The tortilla chips are way too thin to handle the chunky and tasty guacamole. I’d suggest changing to a more substantial chip for the guac. We will return however as overall we enjoy the food, drinks, service and ambiance. We live 45 minutes away.

I liked my food very much; my husband had an upset stomach all night. Our server was mediocre. He did the bare minimum. He never asked if we wanted a second drink. Not sure if he even ever smiled. I realize we shouldn't condemn a restaurant because of one server, but then again, what does that say about whom they hire?

One of my favorite spots, went for lunch and rec'd exception service. One order of food for my guest was fantastic as is usually the norm. My usual burrito bowl... well disappointingly not so much. Tasted like the salt shaker lost its cap in the dish. I had addressed this with the waiter as well as asked to let the cook know because this is NOT the norm. I also ordered a burrito bowl for takeout and asked to ensure the salt, etc was addressed. Upon coming home and delivering the food to the intended recipient... it was the EXACT same problem wayyyy too salty and inedible. So unfortunately not my usual five star visit :(

I took my girlfriend out here last night and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, it came out in a speedy time, and the service was quite good. I would absolutely recommend Mesa to anyone.

One of the worst experiences we have had and we frequent Mesa a lot. The guacamole we order had hard strings of avocado that were hard and black in the middle.

Food was excellent as always. Service was severly lacking. Our waiter had 3 tables since it was late night. After 30 minutes with empty drink glasses I had to ask for refills. After another 30 minutes with no refills and the waiter MIA he finally appeared and asked if we wanted dessert or just the check. Very disappointing.

Delicious chicken tacos and enchiladas! The chicken itself is outstanding, moist and flavorful and big chunks of meat. The guacamole made at your table is also very good. Wonderful meal sitting outside enjoying the evening watching the passersby😀

The ambiance at Mesa is great for gathering of friends, birthdays, or date night. The food is very good. Their Beef Skewers are delicious. The Salmon tacos are also a favorite and very filling. Our experience was over positive. Why this review is not a 5 star but a 4 star; we had to call the waiter’s attention numerous times. We asked for Salt, he forgot, we had to remind him again. This went on throughout our time there. If we needed something, it was a challenge getting our waitress to come to our table. However, I would certain continue to go to Mesa! Overall wonderful time!

We have been going to Mesa every Tuesday for quite some time - my husband loves the taco Tuesday special and I love the lunch specials. However, we have noticed quite a turnover in staff lately; we never see the same wait staff twice. And this time, when we sat outside, the service was poor; the server must have forgotten we were there. After being seated outside by the hostess, who may have been the manager, we weren't even acknowledged by a server for over 10 minutes, and then she came out with a pitcher of water when we had no glasses or set ups. We had to ask for the complimentary chips and salsa this time too when it was always brought to the table shortly after we were seated. When the food finally arrived, after about 30 minutes, they brought out my husband's and son's tacos first; my wrap came out about 3 minutes later. My husband and son said that their tacos were barely warm - as if they had been sitting under a poorly working heat lamp for a while. This is not the service or the quality of food we are used to. I hope they get things together because this was our favorite place for lunch.

We dine here a lot. The food is really good. Yesterday evening was a bad experience. Once we were seated, we waited almost 30 minutes for a waiter before having to go to the hostess and complain.

Drove 45 minutes from NJ to see Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul at the State Theater. First time visitor to Easton. Mesa was recommended and it exceeded expectations. A top notch ceviche was the star of the meal. The flank steak was superb. The enchiladas were magnificent. Service was just right and the margaritas were tasty and strong. We would drive back to Easton just to eat again at Mesa.

Mesa isn’t ‘authentic’ Mexican ... but the food is good, and the cocktails are even better. Good seating with a reservation, otherwise you might get stuck too close to the door, or in the too crowded noisy room.

My family took advantage of Easton Restaurant Week and Mesa Modern's $15 price fixed menu for lunch. Options were great. I was surprised that service took so long at 1:30pm when the restaurant was not busy.
Desserts were a small portion of the usual size. The watermelon salad with basil and cheese was delicious.
Good for $15 but would have been rated overall better had service been improved.

DO NOT GO HERE DURING RESTAURANT WEEK! I repeat DO NOT. I’ve been to this restaurant multiple times and have enjoyed it. Most of the time I go because their Margaritas are usually amazing!! However, my fiancé and I decided to try out the restaurant week menu today. We had a reservation but got there early and the hostess was extremely friendly and helpful. She allowed us to sit at the bar and enjoy a beverage and let us know of a table would open up before our reservation. She was very accommodating. The bartender was friendly but seemed overwhelmed. For restaurant week I think they might have understaffed. We waited forever for our food, the food was very small portions and not impressive. The drinks were strong, but unfortunately half-assed. When we got to dessert it took 45 mins to get it and when we received them they were half melted and I had visibly moldy fruit on my plate. I was so disappointed this time around. My fiancé and I had our first date there and enjoy going back every once in a while but it seems to have gone by the way side.

The server was oddly, unnecessarily self-deprecating to the point that made us feel uncomfortable. Friendly guy but weird vibe. Food was decent, the guacamole is second to none for sure. My chicken enchiladas were ok - not bad but likely won't order them again. Other diners got the crispy cod tacos, and they enjoyed them but said they had a "kick." Overall, decent experience but not in a hurry to return.

Great place with parking deck across the street! Only $1 an hour after 5. Was at dinner with a friend for 2+ hours and only got charged a dollar. Place has a great menu and the wait staff was really nice and friendly and made great recommendations for what to drink and eat! Will definitely be going back!

I used to go to Mesa all the time. The service was not good. Took over 10 minutes for anyone to come to our table. The plantains we ordered as an appetizer came as dessert, drink refills never came. The tacos, which used to be awesome, were soggy and lacked flavor.

Been here a bunch of times, always happy. Today was the first time I sat outside. The food is stellar, and we had fun sitting outside and getting a feel for the town. Mac and cheese with chorizo was so good.

As always, the food was fantastic! My only complaint would be that the service when sitting outside was a little slow, as far as refilling drinks. But otherwise, this is our Tuesday go-to place!

Overall, good food and decent service, though I would have liked to see the waitress again to order another drink. By the time she returned, we were wrapping up our dinner and I opted to forgo the drink. My biggest complaint, however, was noise level - sure, it was a busy Friday night, but I felt like I was yelling just to converse with my date sitting directly across from me. I’m not sure there’s anything to do about it, just something I noticed.

As much as we love the food at Mesa, the service continues to get worse. Our app order of guacamole & chips took 30 minutes to come out. When it did, it had onions which I requested to not have. Our server who mixed the guac didn’t even notice, I had to point it out. The service continued to go downhill from having our entrees come out 5 minutes after our guac showed up. The side of rice and beans came 3/4 of the way into our entrees. The coffee was cold. So while the manager made good by covering about half our bill, they never came to our table to apologize. Our server, Mitchell, while owning up to the mistakes never the beginning, never made an effort to improve the rest of our experience. Disappointed.
