Waiting 30 minutes just to place a drink order, it was not busy. Table next to us left after their appetizer because they sat for so long as well. Drink order came out wrong, food was average. Not a nice Sunday afternoon experience.
I always love coming to this place! The guacamole is amazing, the margaritas are tasty and the service and ambiance is great!
I have been there twice, loved it both times! Great guacomole! and everything else!
Great place to go for a special occasion. Everything was wonderful. Service was excellent. Food was awesome. It was our second time going and we enjoyed it thoroughly.
Always a favorite spot. The outside seating was great until it got a bit colder.
We had a 6pm reservation and 7:30 show tickets. We arrived early and placed an order right away. Our drinks and appetizer took more than 15 and 20 minutes to arrive. The restaurant wasn't full, so it was not because they were packed. We waited until 6:50 for our meals before finally grabbing a manager and cancelling the order. He sent the waitress back with the bill and she proceeded to blame the kitchen. Both appologize but it didn't seem like that big a deal to them. We've had mediocre experiences here before, bit this is a place I will now tell people to skip Mesa. There is better Mexican food with better service in the Valley.
Food was great but service was EXTREMELY slow. Not sure why. It wasn't that busy when we got there.
We had a fantastic time at Mesa for Taco Tuesday and I can say without a doubt that wile will continue to make it a longstanding tradition!
This was our third or 4th visit to Mesa and each time has been a great experience. This lunch was in particular excellent and the best of all our visits. The ingredients used were all super fresh and the entrees made to order. The guacamole was creamy and flavorful with medium spice as requested. We had the burrito bowl with grilled chicken or steak and both were hot, prepared to order ( not tomatoes or no beans etc.). Service was attentive. Highly recommend Mesa for consistent authentic Mexican dining.
Nice variety of dishes.
We got seated right away in a nice corner spot. Server was quick and gave us time to decide. The guacamole con fruita....to die for! Roasted chicken enchiladas, salmon and vegetarian tacos were all delicious. Finished off with some flan which was spot on. We shared a pitcher of Fresco margaritas which were freshly squeezed limes and makes a huge difference from the pre-mixed variety. We were left to enjoy and didn’t feel rushed at all. Love this place!
Good margaritas. Ok food... nothing bad, but nothing spectacular.
Mesa has been a regular stop for us. On this night, my birthday, I ordered a margarita off the menu (Black Cherry) and was told they don't have it. They did, however, make a margarita that was not on the menu anymore. So far not so bad.
I always get the hanger steak. It has always been very good. Tonight our dinner was brought by the manager and what I saw was 1/2 the normal size of the serving. When I objected I was told that this is the regular cut. I've had it at least 5 other times and it was definitely not the same. The manager came back and said they used a new supplier and this is what they received. In the end it was quite disappointing. The manager did nothing to adjust the cost, comp a drink or anything that might have mitigated the feeling we didn't get our moneys worth.
I'll go back again but it's fallen from "regular" status.
Great Place and good value for food! Delicious Margarita’s and Guacamole dip—I visit there frequently! And would highly recommend Modern Mesa!
Very good food. There was a small problem re an absent employee. They apologized multiple times for service delays and discounted our bill as a courtesy.
There were four of us, and we all agreed to return.
The food was excellent, however we made a reservation for 4:15 and had to wait for over 10 mins while entire section was empty. We also had to wait for about 10 mins after being seated for someone to come to the table. After these two concerns, everything else was great!
Let me preface this be saying that Mexican is not my favorite. Having said that, i have had better. Food was average. Guacamole was good. Service was average. Nothing special.
They sat us next to a table full of high school students who readily enjoyed being flirted with by the high school waitress. Drinks mediocre. Food horrible. Traveled 30 Min to get here. Will not go again.
Food wasn’t good. Waitress lacked. The whole restaurant was too hot.
My husband and I had dinner here after it was recommended to us by a few friends. The food was very good, though it could have been seasoned a bit more, or at least more creatively. But everything was very fresh and seemed to be good quality ingredients. Service was efficient and friendly, not overwhelming, though I did not get asked if I wanted a refill of my drink throughout our meal. Not a huge deal - I could have asked but didn't. Dessert was amazing and the coffee was great. We'll definitely go back!
Great food. Great atmosphere. Service was a little slow, but understandable for a Saturday night. Would definitely go back!
Mesa Modern has great food, unfortunately we were there at peak time on a Saturday night so the service took nearly an hour until the entrees came out. The waitress was very friendly and apologetic, she did her best to make the best of a bad situation.
We will return , maybe we will go a little later in the evening next time. I would definetely recommend it to a friend.
Bar staff is attentive and entertaining, and the shrimp and scallop entree is absolutely delicious!
Food was just ok. We've been many times before, but the food seemed very blah. The guacamole is usually delicious, but it seemed like they forgot the lime juice and salt. Nachos we're ok too but nothing great!
Our food was delicious but the service left a whole lot to be desired. No waiter came to our table for at least 10 minutes, probably more like 15 minutes, after being seated. We were going to the State Theater after dinner so we didn't want to be in a time crunch so when a waiter finally did appear, we were ready to order drinks, appetizers, and entrees. Our drinks did not appear for another 10-15 minutes. Then a waiter came to tell us they were out of 1 margarita flavor and instead of offering me the menu again to choose another flavor, basically gave me 1 option and left the table again. The drinks came out 5 minutes later. The guacamole came out soon after. Then they brought 3 entrees out but we all sat around waiting for another 5 minutes until our 4th friend was served. No waiter came by to see if our food was good or if we wanted any other drinks. Once we asked for the check, they were fast as could be which made me feel like we were being forced out ASAP so they could seat another table. Great food, but service needs drastic improvement.
Server was horrible. Margaritas sat at the bar for 15 minutes as the ice melted. Server walked by numerous times without bringing them over to the table. The restaurant was not busy. Appetizers came out late and meal 5 minutes after.
Will not be going here for a while. Back to Torre.
This is not the first time I had poor service here.
I hope the owner reads this to change things.
Overall eveything was excellent! Our waiter wasn’t very knowledgeable of the items on the menu but this will not prevent us from coming again!
I love this place. Great atmosphere and great food. However, they seem to run out of particular popular items frequently. I have been there 3 times, and always are out of margarita flavors. The last time, they were also out of avocados, which is highly disappointing since the guacomole is one of the reasons I go there. My group order something else instead but then we proceeded to see other people getting guacomole. When I asked the watress she apologized and said they went and got more avocados. So in only a half an hour time frame, my group couldn't get it, while others were getting and did get it. This seems like mis communications with the front and the back staff, and poor planning. The wattress was very nice, it was just disappointing. Since running out of items seems to be a constant occurance, I will discontinuing going if it occurs again. It is a shame since I really do like the food and the place.
Food is amazing! Best Mexican and the guacamole is outstanding. My only request would be to turn the l gets up slightly it’s so dark. Otherwise fabulous Foodman service.
Everything was outstanding!!
We've loved Mesa for years...been there many times before, and plan to return many times in the future!
Pre-valentine dinner. Enjoyed the fresh guacamole at our table with a pitcher of margaritas! What better way to start the evening!
Guacamole was very good accompanied by fresh and delicious tortilla chips. Mango Margaritas were very good but we couldn’t reorder because they ran out of Mango purée. Chicken enchiladas were beautifully plated but lacked flavor. Beans and rice were overly salted, too. Corn on the cob was prepared street-style and was excellent and very authentic. Churros were fresh and delicious.
Halfway through dinner the music began and was deafening. Great mix but much too loud.
This was our second visit; we’re an hours drive away. We won’t hesitate to drive 50-60 miles for a memorable dinner. Mesa is good but not worth the trip.
Very nice restaurant. Good food. Good service. Nice ambiance. The only thing they are lacking is tap beers. I really think they need to offer at least 5 tap brews.
First time eating here. Service was amazing. They were on top of everything !! Best Mexican food I've eaten in a very long time. Truly had a wonderful experience . Staff was great and food was excellent ! Would recommend to anyone .
Very nice meal. My wife is not a fan of mexican food but there was a lot on the menu to select from. Myself growing up in Arizona and a fan of Mexican food I would have liked to see more authentic items. I liked the chicken enchiladas but would have liked to see some other things ala cart that I could have picked. Some tamales or more standard tacos. Still it was a good meal with great service and I'll be back again.
Overall we enjoyed our dinner, drinks and atmosphere. The cheesecake and flan were delicious. However, we both had dishes with scallops and we were both disappointed. The scallops were very thick, not seared and not cooked thoroughly.
Mesa never disappoints! Food is always amazing and the guacamole is hands down the best anywhere!
Stopped in for lunch. The hostess, Mackie, was very friendly, and our server did a wonderful job. The food was excellent!
This is a very nice restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The food is good, with a good selection of bottled beer. Although it would be more appealing if there was draft beer available. To have craft beers available would also be great. overall it is a nice restaurant to visit occasionally.
