Mesa will not disappoint. From appetizers to desserts, everything was amazing. I'm not a guacamole person, but totally loved it! Their calamari is great (the jalapeno aioli that comes with it is even better!) I got their shrimp and scallop with lobster ravioli, totally delish. My husband got the pork burrito bowl and had zero complaints (he was so full and happy). Lastly was the dolce de leche cheesecake. DON'T PASS THAT UP!

My server was amazing. Not only did I ask about a drink that was no longer on the menu but she went out of her way to have it made for me! The cucumber mint margarita was my all time favorite and I was so happy she made that happen for me! Customer service at its best. Also had great conversation with the host and bartender! Great experience overall! Keep up the great work!

I have been going here for years and every time I go the service gets worse. I do not believe it is due to the pandemic because this started prior. I try to give it another try thinking it will get better but it does not.

Service was good and ambience but the food was just bad. If you’re looking for real Mexican food this is not the place to go. Aside from that drinks were okay.

Excellent food and service. Upscale mexican restaurant. Our Waiter Ryan was helpful telling us what was in the dishes we ordered. He was very attentive and personable. The wings were crispy and smokey from the chipotle they were seasoned with. The salmon was perfectly cooked, and the riced cauliflower was delicious. Passion fruit was a nice pop of flavor in the flan. And my favorite, fried Icecream was served in 2 balls of crunchy
heavenly vanilla. Great for sharing.
Nice selection of beer. Sangria was underwhelming.
Intimate decor for date night. Outdoor seating available. Plexiglass dividing tables and register. Handicap entrance. Metered street parking, and small lot on the side of building.

Ryan was our waiter. He was absolutely amazing. It was a busy Friday night during a pandemic. And yes we had to wait even though we made a reservation but once we sat down, the seevice was swift, friendly, and everything was delicious and tasty!!! Ryan was knowledgeable and very upbeat and friendly. We have told so many about our night and highly recommend this restaurant for a date night!!!!

Came for restaurant week-6pm reservation. Seated right away, but it took a while before our server came to bring chips/salsa and take a drink order. Then it was a good while before the drinks were delivered, eventually by the bartender though I noticed other servers grabbing finished drinks to bring to their own tables. After probably another 5 minutes, our food order was taken. Appetizers appeared after a pretty standard wait. They were probably the best part of the meal. Empty plates sat for a while then were cleared by the hostess. Sat for another 10 or so minutes and server asked if we wanted another alcoholic drink as it was now last call (6:45). We declined and asked for water which was brought. Waited another 15ish minutes and our entrees finally showed up. Were told that the kitchen only had one cook that night (though other tables seated after us received food before us). The proteins were good, but neither of us liked the sides (strange green colored mashed potatoes with not much seasoning, and fried rice that did not have shrimp despite the menu saying it would have it- also just odd and didn't quite seem "mexican"). Dessert actually showed up pretty quickly after our plates were cleared. It was good, but not amazing. Will only be in the area for a few more weeks and would definitely rather try somewhere else instead of coming back.

We first planned on sitting outside but it was so windy, even in the tent. They gave us a nice table inside away from others. Our server was Kelsey. She was very sweet and attentive. The food was outstanding. We had our usual guacamole which was amazing! I had a salad that was such a beautiful presentation and very tasteful. Everything was absolutely delicious and we love Modern Mesa! They have a great selection to choose from. I highly recommend this restaurant!

We were one of only 6 tables in the outside tent. Three (maybe four) of the tables appeared to know each other and we’re mingling together. The wait staff also appeared to know them as they spent many minutes with each table and one kitchen staff came out and sat with one table for a longer period of time. Our waitress was not incredibly friendly; we were not told upon sitting that the menu was on the QR code. After sitting, it took about 25 minutes to receive our drinks. Our appetizer came out before them. We had to request silverware and water from the host after our food arrived. This was our first time at Mesa and I was incredibly excited to try it. Unfortunately I doubt we will be back as there are many other choices with much better service in downtown Easton.

Mesa has a great outdoor setup for dining in the current environment. The service was excellent and the food and drinks were very good. The falafel tacos are outstanding if you are looking for a vegetarian option. My only complaint is they can be inconsistent in their execution at time (both food and drinks).

We had made a reservation and on the reservation I was clear that I wanted indoor seating. When we got there, the hostess tried telling me they are booked and had 'no indoor seating' and only outdoor seating. After I let her know that I specifically reserved indoor seating, she scrambled around and said we would have to "wait for an available table" (as if I didn't have this reservation. After some time, she finally "found" me a seat (right next to the door that was constantly opening to go outside on an extremely cold evening). The food here is great, however, being winter is coming, they need to figure out their reservations with seating arrangements with indoor and outdoor. There should be no confusion when the patron walks in the door.

Reserved indoor dining and got seated outside. Normally wouldn’t mind but it was a little chilly and we were seated by tent opening. Also metal chair was unbalanced on concrete surface - mildly annoying. Margaritas and guacamole were fantastic! Will definitely return as overall experience was very good.

We had dinner here on a recent Friday night and shared the Mexican wings appetizer and bought a bunch of tacos to share. The brisket tacos were killer. And so are the margaritas.

Before the pandemic, we went to Mesa every week for lunch; usually Tuesday so we could take advantage of "Taco Tuesday." Since the pandemic, lunch specials are no longer offered and the menu is limited, but with enough choices to please all. I love the flavors at Mesa; they are very unique and good. My only disappointment was I ordered the Burrito Bowl with chicken, and the amount of chicken was paltry. The bowl was 90% rice, 5% beans and 5% chicken. It appears that they butterflied one chicken breast into two separate, thin pieces, pounded each paper thin, and then put only one on the plate. For $12.95, I think it is reasonable to expect to receive at least a decent portion of chicken for an additional $4 when I can buy a pound of chicken for $1.99 per pound retail. Again, the flavors were there, but the portion of meat was disappointing. The service at Mesa is always good; very pleasant and attentive servers.
