Food was amazing and service was also amazing but table was too small so I would say ambience was not great

This place is very nice but it is all about the hype. If you worried about the salt in your diet then stay away from this place. Every appetizer and entrée is over seasoned.

The service attention is very good but they forgot half my order when the entrée was served.

I would go here for happy hour or to meet up with someone for the first time. I probably won't be returning to this place. We all work hard for our money and there's too many places out there that are really good to waste your time here.

This is a very nice restaurant, where the food does not quite measure up to the surroundings but still does not detract from a very enjoyable experience. Reasonably priced at the same time, the serene dining rooms with tablecloth-covered tables present an inviting destination for family celebrations. It is recommended with the caveat that going too often may elevate its deficiencies over its attributes over time.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on October 15, 2017

We were a party of eight and thoroughly enjoyed dinner at MesaMar. Being from the San Francisco Bay Area, I find MesaMar rivalling the “best of the best” seafood restaurants in the Bay Area. Nearly everyone in our party ordered the Miami Spice with “Catch of the Day”. The fresh fish, served whole, was excellently prepared as well as eye-catching. It was also a unique experience since a row of the same fish stared at us from a display case as we were dining … although at first I thought it was a plastic display. Not so! Overall our group experienced an elegant and friendly ambience, seafood dishes with innovative fusions of Asian/Latin flavors, and an accommodative wait staff. Our waiter Chris was super … he brought my husband a second dessert on the house when he learned how much my husband had relished his first dessert!

We came here for Miami spice and thought that the food was excellent. Especially, the scallops in pear sauce were spectacular, as well as the almond praline dessert. Other dishes were very good as well. We also loved the ambiance, the place had a very nice feel to it. The service was good, friendly. I was surprised about the wine selection. I thought this restaurant would have an excellent wine list to match its exquisite cuisine. But nothing special there, the wine you can buy at a grocery store, so that was disappointing. Also, they ran out of a lot of things. First, sea bass, then potatoes, and, finally, chocolate mousse. Also, they have an unusual way to celebrate birthdays: blast out the happy birthday song (which made us jump out of our seats in the middle of a quiet dinner) and then proceed with placing some silly hat on the head of a birthday person. I can see how some may find it fun but the whole process seemed odd and out of place. The negatives aside, I really enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely come back again.

The food and service were excellent. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was perfect. It was accompanied by grilled vegetables (the largest sliced zucchini I have ever seen!). My husband had the seafood paella and it was also very nice. I found the drinks a bit on the pricey side. My husband ordered a Black Label on the rocks and you could barely see the scotch in the glass. The Miami Spice selection is quite good and the portions are very generous. I will certainly come again and try other items on their menu.

I would love to give this restaurant a higher rating since the drinks were great and the food was tasty but the service was terribly slow. We made 4 requests for bread, each time to different servers. It took long for our orders to be taken and even longer for the food and drinks to arrive. We arrived at 7:15 (on time for our reservation) and were seated immediately. The restaurant was not very full. Our area only had about o6 of 10 tables filled of which my party sat at 3 of those tables (party of 9). It took about half an hour to recieve our drinks and 45 minutes for extra bread. The appetizers took an hour to receive. Our second round of drinks was forgotten. The main course was warm at best. One of appetizers was the coconut tuna roll. Delicious but it's 4 teeny tiny rolls, hardly an appetizer, more like a sample. I will say the food was flavorful and the drinks were delicious. The wait staff was nice, never rude with our requests just very very slow or forgetful. Not sure if they were short staffed or maybe the kitchen and the bar were short on staff but the waiting was ridiculous. Unfortunately it was bad enough for us to make it our first and LAST dining experience at MesaMar. If you try this restaurant, have a snack before you go!

Mesamar is in downtown Coral Gables. The restaurant is very nice with white tables cloths. Service is very friendly.
I started with tuna tacos which were very good. I then had the whole fried Hog fish which was delicious.
Highly recommend Mesamar.

We went to MesaMar last year and we liked it very much. We went again this year to take advantage of Miami Spice, but we did not have the same experience as the first time. It appears that they changed either ownership or Chef, because they were not properly informed about some food allergies
The food was good, but it took too long to provide answers to some of our questions

Food was delicious. We went for Miami Spice because the regular prices are a little to rich for our blood, but it was nice to enjoy a fancy restaurant even if for one night. The waitress and the gentleman refilling our water were great. There was grease on my chair that got on my favorite dress, which was quite unfortunate, but the waitress met me in the restroom and gave me a stain remover. I was charged almost triple the amount but the incorrect amount was removed right away. Would highly recommend, especially for Miami Spice. Went with my children, they had a good time and enjoyed their food as well.
