Wonderful food and service in pleasant suburban surroundings. Enjoyment of evening marred by disappearance of my husband’s sweater which he left on the back of his chair.
This is a Great seafood Resturant . Tasty, presentation, Nicolai was our waiter this time.( prompt and Nice ) .
Loved the food service and ambiance.
ONCE AGAIN WE RECEIVED A GREAT DINNER, TREMENDOUS SERVICE AND WONDERFUL FOOD.
I ordered black cod, very very tasty however portion is too small. Usually I can only have half of my entry order. Food is really good. I will definitely come back and recommend to my friend.
The tuna tartar and the fresh fish of the day were delicious. The best “tostones” I’ve ever had, thin and crunchy. The service and ambiance superb. Valet parking icing on the cake.
Reservations where for 8:15 pm . Did not get seated till 8:30
Spectacular food and delightful service!
THERE WAS A LOUD GROUP IN THE CORNER THAT LIMITED OUR TALKING; OTHRWISE THE CATCH OF THE DAY FISH AND PREPEARATIONS WERE EXCELLENT.
This restaurant is always great. Savory food, awesome service, good location, valet parking.
We have been looking for a good seafood restaurant for awhile. We loved our meal. We will definitely be back.
The muted colors and hushed tones lent a relaxed but classy ambience to the restaurant. We were seated right away and our waitress was attentive without being pushy. Our entree selections were right on - tasty and tastefully presented. I wish there were more wine selections.
The food was excellent, the attention was fine and we had a great time! 👍
All good. Good service, nice and clean. Good food. Waiter Carlos very good.
Have been there now a few times and very consistently good. That's hard to find in Miami.
Upon arriving to the restaurant we were seated right away not having to wait which obviously made it very convenient knowing that it was Valentine's Day we did get to see that we wanted right in front of the window overlooking the restaurant also being able to see outside the menu was a prefix menu which is okay but was limited would definitely come back to try the regular menu
Went for VD
Very mechanical and rushed service
Place was very busy
No real menu explaining
Small portions especially entree
Dessert was best part of meal
I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. However, dinner last evening was marred by a strange incident. It was valentine's day and I was presented with a fixed menu. I asked if we could order off the menu and I was told that we could not. About ten minutes later two people sat next to us and promptly ordered off the fixed menu. Point taken.
Our waiter Brian did a great job. We love this restaurant and wish our favorite wait staffer Britney an easy delivery and health baby.
We had a Business Dinner there and the service was great. Food was awesome! I highly recommend. We each had different items as well as appetizers and everything was delicious.
The food was excellent. The fish was fresh and prepared well. The vegetables were also excellent...fresh and not greasy or over cooked.
The service was awful, The waitress would disappear for extended periods of time and from where we were seated we could not get anyone's attention without getting up and searching for an employee. Towards the end, after we had finished dinner, she brought us the desert menu and left the area for 20 minutes. She then came back two times to wait on an other of the tables in our vicinity but left for another 5 minutes each time without even looking at us. We finally got her attention on the third time she came back and asked for our bill without ordering desert just so we could get out of there.
As far as the food, I ordered the Black Cod which came out under cooked. My wife ordered the Paella and it was pretty much tasteless. Based on the temp of both of our dishes, they sat for a while before being brought out to us.
We eat out quite often and I can honestly say that we will NEVER eat at MesaMar again.
Great food, beautiful presentation and excellent service
It was delicious. Food hot and well presented. The fish outstanding. The rice really good and all the appetizers were first class. The wine and service very good as well. It is our favorite restaurant in the Gables.
Excellent restaurant. Fantastic food, fresh fish, nicely cooked and great service. Good place for special occasions or business meals
The fish was great but the accompanying items were just OK.
The Caeser salad that came with each entre was tiny and below average.
Food was amazing. From My starters to desert. Must try the Coconuts Roll, Tuna Sashimi, Crab Cakes are definitely neck and neck with the Forges. Whole fish cooked to your liking along with the Ravioli ARE AMAZING AS WELL. The desert, I forgot the name but was out of control it was topped with caramelized chopped almonds.
Wow the fish is amazing! Appetizers are fun. Make reservations!
Great seafood dishes, but the side dishes bring the restaurant class down. Rice and beans and tostones are not what I expect at a restaurant that charges what they do. The were also out of 2 of the wines we order.... in my opinion they need to step it up. For what they offer you can go to a local Cuban restaurant.
Had a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon, wife had the hog snapper which was very tasteful and well presented. I on the other hand ordered the camarones enchilado and did not liked or enjoyed, the sauce was totally different than what an enchilado taste (I'm referring to Cuban Enchilados ) there are other varieties in central and South America. I alerted our server and she was willing to change the dish for something else but I decline and ate the shrimp with the rice but no sauce. The service was very good so was the Maracuya Moose . I've heard many good comments about mesa Mar so one bad experience does not make the restaurant a bad place. I plan to go back. We are frequent visitors to the owners former establishment FiFi on Miami Beach where we never had gone wrong.
Great drinks, meal, service.
Everything Was Excellent Enjoyed It Very Much And Very Well priced
Food & service are the best!
Mesamar is generally a good restaurant but the last meal there was ok. Fish was fresh but rather bland, which frankly was a disappointment. The initial serving of sides was lukewarm. While staff was responsive in remedying the latter, we would have expected all of our food to be served at the appropriate temperature in the first place. This is not an inexpensive restaurant.
Food was great, the place is beautiful, its nice to go to a restaurant and actually be able to talk. I food took its time to be served but we had no hurry and I guess that is the idea also, seat and relaxm enjoy the time!!
Always get amazing service and food when I eat here. The fish and seafood is fresh and many options to choose from. Speciality drinks are delicious and worth a try!
The grilled Hogfish was excellent, the Tostones and Black Beans are a must!!
The chocolate french brownie dessert was amazing and let’s not forget their traditional Mojito. I love Mesamar their food and service are always consistent.
Second time went back to Miami and tool the whole family with us, we love there food. They had system problems but it was Iike they had no problems had all took care us and the side where all free. Anytime I am in Miami or anywhere near I am going to eat there.
We've been to Mesa mar many times. As in previous visits the Food and Service were very good. The only reason Ambiance was not rated very good this time was that the volume of the recorded music was very high for a restaurant. The rating for Noise Level did not provide for this, but as Open Table required an answer to all ratings I selected the highest ("Energetic"). It was not energetic, it was unpleasant.
As always… Fantastic… the hog snapper
is the very best.
Excellent food, but a couple of dishes were not hot enough.
