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.

Used to be a great place to go to for drinks and a good time. The dj was extremely rude and the bar does not attract kind customers. Would not go back here.

Service was very bad, took forever to get drinks n even longer when we ask for water. Waitress barely came around to ask us for more orders/drinks. Foods was very salty (pizza, steaks, even the mussels what I been wanting to go back to eat. Been here a few times n last nite was the worst ever n service n in the foods. I won’t be back there anymore. Not recommend my friends/family to go there anymore.

Calamari was overly dredged with batter and overcooked
All other dishes were very good no complaints

I’m writing the note because the ambiance.
It was way too dark to where I couldn’t see the other persons face. The screen in background was flashing bright white then dark tones, may be better to play something with mellow tones and improve lighting during the dining hours.

Thank you

Service was almost non existent - had to wave down our and go out of our way to get our waitress to notice us to order everything from water to napkins. Food was good, ambiance is great. Not sure id want to recommend unless it was just for the bar.

This was the PERFECT place to take my cousin who recently moved from Chicago to Hollywood. I wanted to show him how much cooler the O.C. was and this did the trick! Plus, the food and service was good!

Great food and cool spot! However, dining service seemed to be off. It was clear the servers were more familiar with table/drink services offered late night rather than the dinner service.

The service was ok. All servers were very nice but they seemed under staffed. Things just really started to open post Covid so I can understand but wanted to leave an honest review. The food was a little overpriced but overall good.

Mesa is a nice lounge/restaurant and I love the ambience there, but we were unable to get served and there was only 1 bartender. Maybe everyone was off on Wednesday. Oh well, I'll try again on a different night.

Horrible service. Waitresses tried to tip themselves 38% after giving some of the worst service I’ve had in a long while and I frequent these types of restaurants/lounges in this area and Newport Beach. If you go beware of your bill and how they handle your charges/tip.

Our second time going in, first time was with a group of friends and the service was great. Second time was just me and my partner for date night and our waitress did not give good service. We had to flag her down every time we needed something and she didn’t check in on us at all. We ordered drinks before we left and she never brought them so we canceled.

Amazing place. Great staff very friend. I had the beef tartare and a drink called F*ckn’ Perfect. It was a bit dark considering it was 7:45pm people like taking pics and some lights should be stay on but over all my experience was amazing. I’m visiting from Washington DC and I’ll define back again.

Place is always great. It’s by reservations only now. That’s makes it for a perfect occasion. It used to be packed with no room to move around, now much better with the limited seating. Food and drinks have always been superior. The reservations are only for 90 minutes maximum but we were allowed to stay 3+ hours before leaving. No issues whatsoever. No concerns at all. Go there. You will not be disappointed!
