    This place is more a lounge than a restaurant, the menu is very limited and there are time limit restrictions on the tables although at the time the place was near empty. Good place to have a drink but not for dinning.

    Great place overall. however please close off reserved sections. Not only was I shoved by security for accidentally attempting to walk through a reserved section on accident the party host got in my face … it was a very traumatic experience. It was my birthday and I left because I was alittle shook up. Otherwise up to this i loved the place.

    We were there for 6:30 dinner. The restaurant had a beautiful section with lovely natural lighting and fireplaces. It looked warm and fun just like the pictures of the place we wanted to dine in and seen in the website. We, on the other, were sat in the dark area on the other side of the restaurant with light so low, I could not read the menu, a two seater table that was very uncomfortable on the booth side and ceiling so low I could even the sounds of the conversations from the five parties there was loud (along with music probably too loud for the setting/time). The waitress was attentive but seemed uninterested. All of what we experienced probably would have been fine had it been much later at night. The food was tasty and the drink were okay. We were greeted by a friendly but serious looking bouncer and a that hostess quickly informed us we can only sit at a table for 90 minutes. I felt that we were immediately being told to not get comfortable. I could understand this if it was later and the place was packed but there was only one other couple there and we obviously looked like we did not plan to stay for the DJ. It would have been a much more enjoyable dining experience had it been treated less like a club at 6:30 and more of a restaurant.

    Came here with a group of 10 for a friends birthday. Service was slow. Myself and another girlfriend were burned by the sparkler they had in the birthday dessert. She has a blister on her nose, which is now scabbed over & I have blisters on my thighs, my skirt was also ruined with burn marks. Staff did not seem concerned when it was brought to their attention. We wanted to stay to enjoy the rest of the evening but were rushed out of our table with no place else to relocate. Table reservations rules are very confusing, two separate reservations are needed for dinner & club - which was not indicated.

    Nice place. I made a reservation in advance and they wanted to seat the 2 of us at a bar. I asked for a table. They found us one. I would have given 5 stars all around except the servers had no idea how to smile or be friendly. They seemed bored and didn't want to be there. No one teaches customer experience anymore. A little smile goes a long way. I didn't even get a chance to look at dessert and she brought the bill without even asking.

    Great experience at Mesa. Server was amazing, food was great, and the music was exactly what we wanted (top 40 and 2000s). We are dinner and hung out the first 1.5 hrs then went to the bar and danced until the lights came on. Highly recommend.

    Started with calamari for our first app which was a 10/10. I got the steak frites which were cooked to perfection, definitely a 10/10. The Mírame cocktail was pretty strong which can be good or bad depending on the person haha. Everyone in my group enjoyed their food and our waitress was very attentive. Overall 10/10 experience.

    This was not the best experience. The food was not what I was told by the waitress, the meat was obviously re-heated, the vegetables burned, not good taste at all. Then the limitation of time for us to enjoy our night messed up the whole dinner experience. This place is more for drinks and definitely will never again will have dinner there.

    The place itself is really nice. Their bar is very limited in terms of what drinks they can make and their cocktails menu is also very limited as a result. They couldn’t even make espresso martinis as an example. The food was really good, but it was cold. Would have been much better if it was actually warm. Overall it’s a very good place even though it has plenty of room for improvement especially with their food and how they serve it.

    From dirty utensils to subpar service, I would call my experience lackluster at very best. The servers all seemed annoyed to even be there, the food was just ok, the place was pretty loud, and despite my reservation, it seemed as if they weren’t expecting us.

    Food not very good. We ordered the Tomahawk for $145 and it was nowhere near Prime cut. Tough and chewy with no flavor The chimichurri sauce and garlic sauce was very oily and not good Seems like you don’t go to this place for food but to go “clubbing” with friends to have drinks and listen to music

    I’m really not a particularly picky person about restaurants, but this was among the worst service I’ve had at a “nice” place and even worse food. We had a 6pm reservation and the place opens at 6 so we were among the first few people in the restaurant. It took at least 10 minutes for our waitress to come over and even ask about drinks and her overall demeanor seemed like she had zero interest in being there. I ordered the margherita pizza, which was supposed to have burrata and mozzarella cheese, and when it came out the cheese was orange. It also had about 2 leaves of basil on it. It was terrible and I highly doubt it had the ingredients it said it did. My drink was empty for about 20 minutes before the girl came to ask if I wanted a refill, then I watched her carry my drink around with her finger touching my straw to two other tables before going to refill it. Overall I was super disappointed.
