Everything was perfect. Thank you!
Great overall experience just, slightly louder than I would prefer.
The restaurant was recommended by a family member who raved about it. We made the reservation and we too were impressed. It is a pleasant establishment and well-run with competent host and staff. They are knowledgeable about the food and the wine. The orders came surprisingly fast considering the crowd. The appetizers were delicious but the octopus was not as fresh as I have had before in other places. The main courses were all prepared with plenty of spicing and herbs which added to the flavoring. All in all, a great experience that I will repeat.
Terrific food, somewhat noisy, and we were in the quieter part of the restaurant!
Delicious meal and wonderful service. It happened to be Coral Gables restaurant month, excellent menu and a great value.
It did get rather noisy toward the middle of our dinner.
My only complaint was I ordered an Aperol Spritz cocktail and nobody know what I was talking about. This being a trendy restaurant should know about all cocktails and how they are made.
We celebrated my son's 40th birthday at MesaMar. The food was very good (their $39 prix fixe menu is excellent), service (Wendy was our waitress) was attentive and very friendly, the wine list is very adequate and fairly priced. It was truly a lovely dining experience.
Got sick off the food. Terrible stomach ache.
Ordered catch off the day 1/2 grilled 1/2 fried. The fried part tasted bitter like the oil was old. The grilled part as over cooked.
The restaurant was nice in ambience.
Excellent food, ambiance, service especially Teresita G. Very friendly, professional, attentive , great service with a smile.
My husband and I tried out Mesa Mar last week during restaurant week and enjoyed a fantastic three-course sampling menu. The experience was so pleasant, in fact, that I came back the next night with my son and did it all over again. Ryan, our server during both visits, was friendly, extremely attentive and professional. He made sure every detail of our dining experience was perfect. I highly recommend ... and DO NOT MISS the coco-nut roll appetizer! Spectacular!
Great experience. The seafood was outstanding. Their whole fried hog snapper was delicious. It was just as good grilled. The sahimi had a special sauce that was very good. The Albarino was very cold and the service was excellent. Highly recommend it !!
They sat us down quick. The Food and service was great! We will definitely be back again.
The food was outstanding and the only restaurant in Miami where i know i can get fresh hog fish! Service was on point and the manager is visible and greeting/thanking customers. Highly recommend!!!
Excellent service , fresh food, great ambiance
Exceeded all my expectations!
Fantastic seafood, very fresh. A wonderful atmosphere for dining.
Very nice ambience , very good food. Waiters very attentive.
We went to Mesa Mar to celebrate a birthday, we ordered the grilled red snapper, lobster tempura, lobster taco, black beans & Tostones, all the dishes were amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious. The brownie dessert was delicious as well. Our waiter was very courteous and gave great service. Great experience! The fish was very fresh. I will definitely be back again!
Great service....outstanding food!!
Food was perfectly prepared and beautifully displayed. The service was exceptional. I highly recommend.
Best Hog Fish in town. Fabulous service. Great teamwork. Management is visible and on top of everything and ensures a great guest experience!
food was excellent. waiter was super helpful with recommendations. seafood was fresh.
Short answer - wasn’t up to standards. The room they seated us in had no personality. They ran out of food we wanted. Almost 3 hours for a complete meal. Brought some out & needed to wait for the rest. I’d just call it an off night.
Mesa Mar is an elegant restaurant. . Service was friendly.
We started with Tuna tartare which was very good.
We then had grilled hogfish which was delicious.
Very nice meal but expensive.
Mesa Mar has a wonderful ambiance. Beautifully decorated interior with great lighting. AMAZING seafood options - especially the whole fish!! Only bad thing was our waiter had trouble with bringing out the correct bottle of champagne for us...brought out a bottle of not champagne after we ordered, we corrected him, and then he came back 5 minutes later with the same incorrect champagne bottle!!
Food is always great, ambience and service is beyond good. Never tire of coming!
The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. Perfect for a special occasion.
Food was incredible, service was great. We were in town from Los Angeles for the weekend and were very impressed
Went here for Graduation lunch on a Monday. Excellent food and service. Lots of options and everything was delicious. The ambience was lovely. Perfect for lunch with family. One of the best restaurants in Miami i’ve ever been to, but great prices.
No extra charge for the comedy . . .
I've been here once before. The food was better last time; just okay this time around. The rock shrimp were very tasty, but the grilled hog snapper (the "house specialty") was overcooked and dry. The paella was solid, nothing special. The server had a great smile, but communications in English were a challenge for her. The funniest moment came when a Caesar salad was delivered -- with Romaine lettuce (which is the subject of a very strong advisory from CDC and a "just say no" from Consumer Reports). We asked where the lettuce came from. Blank stare, followed by trip to kitchen. No one seemed to be able to figure out why we had any concern about eating Romaine. Finally, we just said no. I ordered an Armagnac; she said they had one. Brought me a Grand Marnier. I like the look and feel of the bright, airy dining room. Everyone is in a great mood. A birthday celebrant came around to meet and greet all the diners (and maybe sell a few cars . . . ). The Felluga Pinot Grigio was fairly priced and very tasty. This place should be better -- and would be, if the food and the service generated more smiles than laughs.
We had a wonderful time
Amazing! If you like fresh fish this a must go place!
Service was amazing...staff was excellent! Food was great...dessert was wonderful. So amazed that they gave me warm cream with my coffee seems like a simple thing but rarely done. Attention to detail here is great. Overall we were very pleased with our experience and would definitely recommend this spot.
This has always been one of our favorite restaurants. Never has disappointed us, until tonite. Food was excellent as always. Service was very slow and we had to constantly ask for our waiter to give us a menu so we could order the next course. We did not even order dessert (after we had asked for the dessert menu) because they never came to take the order. We had to get up from our table in order to get their attention to pay so we could leave. Very dissatisfied.
Great Service. Great ambiance. Food was delicious. Server made great recommendations. Had whole hog snapper (1/2 fried, 1/2 grilled) and was big enough to share. Tostones where thin and crispy. Praline dessert was amazing. Will definitely go back!!!
GOOD EVENING OUT
Visited for the first time on a Friday evening for a 7:45 reservation. The restaurant was moderately filled at first but became much more crowded within the hour. The food we shared was enjoyed by all - ceviche with passionfruit, grilled seafood entrees, and a seafood entree in flavorful tomato broth over rice.
It was nice that the restaurant seemed to comfortably accommodate all parties from 2 people to much larger groups. We found the prices to be reasonable for what was served and would definitely return in the future.
Excellent food and service! Must get the Hog Snapper... my new favorite place!!
Great fresh fish. Good service will return
