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.

We went to celebrate my husband’s bday with another couple. The food was delicious, we ordered several plates from the menu. The drinks were very good as well. Our waitress Brooke was great, excellent service all around, will definitely go back. We were very impressed, highly recommended

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!

I came to try this place for the first time with a few friends. We came on a Saturday night. I highly recommend this place! Our server Lindsay was very nice and very accommodating. I ordered a drink and I didn't really like the taste and she was able to take it off the tab and she recommended the Off Shore Account and it was so good! I cant wait to come back again!

It was great to be back in Mesa. Unfortunately due to covid policy, it is reservation only and it is more of a lounge than a nightclub during Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Great food, the service was fantastic. Good to see well known faces like the dj and bartenders. Hopefully when covid is over it will go back to being in nightclub mode again.

I LOVE MESA!!! One of the best bar/lounge/restaurants in Orange County! It is a great atmosphere, happening vibe, fun/nice/respectful people, best drinks/food and best of all a GREAT STAFF who takes care of us all! I have made lifelong friends going to Mesa over the last few years. It is the kind of place where you see lots of familiar faces but new ones every time you go as well. You will never be bored.....ALWAYS A BLAST AT MESA! If you have not been to Mesa, you are missing out! You have to check it out!

We chose this place due to personal reason and that we had a great time here a few years back but did not know what to expect due to the Covid situation. When we showed up, it was better than we had hoped for. It was nice, relax and fun but not loud, perfect environment for any occasion. Whether you wear jean and T-shirt or suits, you still feel like you will fit in. The hostesses and waitresses were nice and attentive. The steak was a bit over-cooked but overall, it was a great experience.

Pleasant evening from start to finish. Ambiance was spot on as lighting and schematics set the mood. I’m glad we had an early reservation because unknowingly at one point Mesa transformed into a night club. I will definitely be back to experience the nite-life offering when timing is appropriate. Great establishment that recognizes how to run a Vegas Style restaurant transitioning into a niteclub/(Lounge by LV Standards-based on size of locale). I applaud how your team is compliant with the days we live In....

Food and service were impeccable. Noise a bit much, so if you're intent on having conversation without having to talk loudly you might want to choose some other place. Very chic, great food...

Mesa did an amazing job for our 21st anniversary. From a champagne toast to start and ended with a beautiful personalized 21st anniversary dessert board. In so many years we’ve never experienced a restaurant that really went above and beyond to make our night special! Will definitely be back with friends.

The mussels where tender juicy. I loved the chorizo touch as a Mexican lady much appreciated flavor. Barley veggies super delicious 😋. Thank you for lovely dinner and ambiance 🌴

I was not informed that there was a fixed menu when I booked my reservations so a little disappointed that we could not order from the full menu. I think restaurant should provide this information up front for their guests. It was valentines evening and i would have booked elsewhere if I was informed.

Not sure if it was b/c of the weekend, but my reservation was for 8pm on a Friday. The host that calls to confirm tell you that you got only 2 hours at the table, then you walk in and they tell you there's another reservation behind you so you got less than 2 hours, then your server opens up with you got 1.5 hours because there's another reservation. Then 1 hour into it, they tell you you got 30 minutes. It is like you are on the clock and they are so worried about the next group that they don't give you any good service.

It was crazy loud inside because of the music, my watch kept warning me that it was going to damage my hearing. Someone around us was smoking pot inside the restaurant. Plus the food was very mediocre.. $28 for an average restaurant style burger and generic Sysco food supply fries. LAME. Will never go there again.
