From entrance to exit, everything was perfect. Nice greeting at the door, prompt seating for our reservation, nice greeting by our server, Keith, who provided excellent and attentive service throughout our meal. All of the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant

I loved the food the restaurant is gorgeous and the service was amazing. I can do without the mariachis band. I felt the place is to small for the loud music and you cannot talk from across the table normally but with the music it makes it harder to hear.

Linen on table was slightly stained. Food was good. Salad was so small valets were no where to be found. We left the car up front and host said he would give it to them. Food was fantastic.

I had been to Mesa Mar once before and my experience was nice. This time I would describe it as disappointing. The room was busy and the restaurant had not a clue as to how to deal with it. Service was unresponsive, slow and unattractive . The ambulance was loud and confused at best; the food average not worth the price. I am a good and beverage professional, I won’t return. Shameful experience on a Wednesday night.

My brother and I got together tonight to try Miami spice here at Mesa mar and it did not disappoint. The scallops were excellent and the paella although a little salty for my taste, was more abundant and dynamic than I expected which I appreciate. We felt the service could have been more prompt considering that the place was not very full and the server could not have had very many tables but the overall experience was enjoyable and I’m willing to overlook that. My brother had the catch of the day which was also very fresh and flavorful.

For some reasons, we just like Mesa Mar. This was our 3rd visit in the last 12 months. The food is always good. Furthermore, we like the professional service, the way we are treated (very important), the ambience and the coziness of the place.
I was pleasantly surprised when the host specifically told reminded me that it was my 3rd visit and thanked me for my patronage. The complimentary Lobster Taco was much appreciated. Our waiter, Sergio, did a fantastic job. The service was top notched. The catch of the day, which was the red snapper (half grilled and half fried), was delicious. You can’t go wrong either with the Parillada de Mar (Mixed Grilled Seafood). It was plenty of seafood for 2. As for my fried calamari (appetizer), it was so so. In fact, I would even suggest that they change the shrimp cocktail sauce for more a marinara sauce which would me more appropriate the fried calamari. In spice of that, Mesa Mar remains one of my “go to” seafood restaurants in Coral Gables.

Was 15 min late for the reservation due to traffic but called the restaurant to make them aware of it while in transit and was told it would be no problem. Upon arrival, we were told it would be 5-15 min wait but ended up waiting 30 min while watching them seat others ahead of us. When I asked the manager why this was happening he said “I don’t know what to do.” This place has got to be the worst run restaurant in the city.
Once seated, things got better, but not much. The appetizers were the best part of the meal. However, the main course came out while we were still eating our salad so clearly the kitchen and front of the house have communication problems. The whole fish main course was poorly seasoned and dry.
The decor was mishmash, the chairs were wobbly and had scratches, and the floors were filthy dirty.
The management was the worst ever, but besides that this restaurant doesn’t come close to the quality offered elsewhere. Would never return.

We went for the Miami Spice menu. The restaurant was super busy so we had a bit of a wait, but the food made it so worth it and the staff were lovely. They also gave us a complementary dish for making us wait, so I have no complaints at all. The food was amazing and I will definitely be back.

Staff was under prepared to handle the influx of guests. When I requested to speak to the manager (via phone because there was no manager on duty) he elected not to speak to me. I was expecting more based on the reviews.

This place is a gem in coral gables, service, drinks and food are extraordinary. I had a lobster bisque followed by a grilled octopus and my wife ordered the passion fruit ceviche and hog snapper served two ways, grilled and fried. Everything was absolute incredibly delicious, a must visit place for seafood lovers and definitely a place to repeat. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!!

Lovely restaurant. Been there twice. The paella, and scallops appetizer was delicious. I tried the fried rice on a friend recommendation and I was a bit disappointed. The rice was not very flavorful and had very little chicken, shrimp etc. My husband had the special fried fish and it was delicious.

This is a wonderful restaurant with a very “Miami-Latin vibe” the ambiance is first rate as is the service. You will feel welcomed here. Just a few quibbles with the food. The “complimentary “ salad is small, limp and generally unappealing . It would be better to do without than the lackluster introduction to the meal. Ditto the bread—it may have been Cuban but hard to tell as it was not hot or crusty—just white. The whole fish is super but not the sides . Maybe it would be better not to offer “ vegetables “ than frozen Lima beans, one lone cold, tough asparagus and some tasty squash. Why not just the squash and mushrooms.
I have not been able to adjust my review. But I would give the food just 3 stars . Not the 5 that are indicated
