This is our third time at MesaMar. We went on the way to the airport on our way back from the Keys because we love it so much. Service was fantastic, super accommodating and the food is amazing!! Can’t wait to go back.

There was a prix fixe menu only... no option to order off menu. This should have been advertised in advance.

Also, food was excellent, but service felt rushed.

Finally, we were in a small room and there were other guests talking loudly in cell phones.

The first time we went our server Ryan did a great job explaining the menu and made some great recommendations after asking what we normally eat. This second time we visited, Ryan saw us checking in and immediately asked the host to sit us at his tables. The hogfish is a must have.

The hog snapper special was delicious and it was served in a creative manner. Vegetables were just ok, nothing exciting. Caesar salad, although complimentary, was very small. Pricing for all was slightly on the high side, thus my disappointment in the veggies and salad. Service was pleasant although a bit slow.
I liked the ambiance and the fact that we were not surrounded by noise although the restaurant was busy.
I would recommend.

We were a party of four. I got there about 20 mins before the other three people and was seated right away. The hosted showed me a booth table, put the menus down and left. Not once did she look at me or talk to me. As I was seating there by myself, I kept waiting for someone to come and offer me something to drink - nothing! Lots of people running around, helping all the other tables but not me. Everyone managed to make me completely invisible! Only after about 15 mins I manage to catch someone’s eye who came and offered water. I told her I would like to order a glass of wine and she looked confused... I guess because I was alone. I don’t mind being alone in a restaurant but the fact that I was sitting there in a table for four, without anything to drink, and all the staff ignoring me for over 15 mins, made the situation very awkward for me. The food was very mediocre. The paella was wet (so basically was a rice with seafood not a paella!). The other plates looked sad - fried fish all alone in a plate and the side of brown rice on a separate dish.. no color... just brown on brown. My husband had to flag the waiter down to get another drink. The last thing- this is supposed to be a nice, elegant restaurant. Someone in another table had a birthday. All of the sudden very loud music came on and 3-4 waiters started running to the table with hats - in a very disorganized way. Because they were not prepared when the loud music came on, once they were at the table they had to start the music again. It was a very sad attempt to be fun and celebratory. The idea is nice but the way they do it is odd and unprofessional. The waiters did not look engages and were there just to give the hat and nothing else. Is OK to try to be a fun/elegant restaurant... but do it right. The whole experience and food was just bad and sad. We will not go back. There are way too many excellent restaurants in Coral Gables... this one just doesn’t compare.

Been to Mesa Mar twice since it changed names / owners. Same interior as Zielo, the restaurant that was in this space previously. No need to change. Very handsome design. High end, but comfortable. Mesa Mar's kitchen is much better. The food is fantastic. Had the Corvina Ceviche last time, the Tropical Salad and whole snapper this time. My wife had the tuna crudo and the shrimp. Kids had the pasta, which is homemade. Everyone was very happy with their meal. Really nice cocktails, and fantastic desserts. Our compliments to the chef. The service needs to be managed better. Missing fork here. Missing spoon there. Empty water glasses. We had to wave servers down to get their attention. They were congregating and socializing among themselves, instead of keeping an eyeball on the guests. The food and atmosphere, both of which are excellent, deserve a better managed server team. I'd give Mesa Mar a "B+" overall. With slightly more attentive servers, this could have easily been an "A" experience both times we visited.

Very nice seafood restaurant in Gables, off the Main street of Miracle Mile. There is a open air metered parking lot steps away. There are a few (4-7) small outdoor sidewalk tables that are nice. Indoor, ambiance is very classy-clean, modern but elegant, and with a Mediterranean style. Music was mostly slow jazz that could make for a romantic night. We dined on a quiet Saturday afternoon and had the inside space almost to ourselves. I did note that the tables were a little close together, therefore it could get noisy when full. Service was very good. Good was great. Scallops and grilled calamari appetizers were divine. Fried snapper entree had a very light but crispy batter and was delicious. Main lobster entree was good but not great because it was cooked with a bit too much butter, even though a side of butter was also provided for dipping. It also was a bit overdone—the fish was much better. Overall food and ambiance were very nice, and I would definitely try this place again when looking for fresh seafood in Miami.
