Our server was awesome. Food was good, but a bit overpriced. The restaurant called to confirm our reservation earlier that afternoon and asked if we were celebrating anything. Told them a 28th wedding anniversary. Not sure why they bothered to ask since there was no mention of it by anyone during our meal. When we arrived they sat our party of 4 next to a long table of 12 people celebrating something and they were having a great time, but naturally were a bit loud. We asked to be seated at another table (and there were plenty of open tables). Hostess seemed put off that we asked to be moved. Not certain we’d go back.

We had a great date night. It was loud, so sitting in a booth was great. Our food was delicious. We got the Brussel sprouts au gratin and the Kung pao calamari. We split the ribeye, and that was cooked perfectly. I ordered a glass of wine right before the steak came, and didn’t get it until we were almost done, 15 mins later. Not a huge deal, it was busy.

I hosted my brother-in-law and sister for his birthday. They had never been to Mesh and were very impressed and are anxious to return. Mesh is one of my favorites in downtown Indianapolis. The lunch for his birthday was quite special.

We all ordered different lunch items and everyone's order was delicious! I would highly recommend the salmon entree, just the right amount of food and the cranberry/apricot sauce really brought out the taste of the salmon. Bravo!

We ate early, so it's expected to get good service and a quiet meal. It was particularly nice, though. Server was good, experienced, and knowledgeable. Food was appealing and quite tasty. Extremely nice ambiance. A bit pricey but not ridiculously so.

Very quiet for a Friday night at 6:30. Large party upstairs, but very few people in the dining area downstairs. No background music of any kind. Servers seemed distracted. Men’s bathroom was out of service. The ventilation cover in the hallway was full of dust. I’m usually a fan of the Cunningham Group restaurants, but this was disappointing. We won’t be back.

They do everything right from the wine list to the dessert. The ambiance is great. The servers are not phony or condescending. The food is the best. A little pricey

We have gone to Mesh for a lot of life events. This time they knew it was our anniversary and went above and beyond and gave us a card signed by staff and also a dessert on the house. Just above and beyond. We will continue to go to this lovely restaurant for not only the delicious food but also for a staff and management that cares about you as a patron. Well done Mesh staff and management.

We went here for our anniversary. We had been when they first opened but had not been back since. There was nothing wrong with the meal. The service was good and we enjoyed the free dessert they gave us for our anniversary. I had the crab cakes and actually thought they were very meaty and had good flavor. I wasn’t sure about the sauce, topping they had on it. I could have done with less or even enjoyed the crab cakes by themselves. My wife had the fried snapper and it was fried. I had a bite and it was good but she would have preferred something grilled or broiled which was not on the menu.

I think Mesh is good, it just isn’t great. I like its local ownership and the location on Mass Ave is great but it seems like they may try a little too hard on the menu and instead could add a couple more traditional menu items.

Several of us are longtime regular patrons. When we got there at 4:30 I told the host we were headed to the table I'd reserved and he was quick to tell me that was fine but we had to be out of there by 6:30 because he had customers to seat there for dinner. I expressed surprise and then he figured things out and told us not worry. We had a heck of a time getting waited on, which was particularly frustrating given there was no one else in the restaurant for the first duration of our 3 hours there. My first drink order was wrong. The waitress was neither friendly nor attentive.

All said, we had a fine time. While I'm nibbing about things, I wish y'all wouldn't phone me hours ahead of my reservation with a message to return the call to confirm. If you find it necessary to make your customers confirm one more time in advance, texting would be preferable. Thanks.

I meet a friend for lunch and we were assisted by Emily. A very pleasant young woman who had answers to all our questions, took care of our needs, yet did not hover. The food was perfectly prepared. Two wedges salads (this is not just a chuck of lettuce), cold salmon sandwich and a chicken salad sandwich. For two girls out on a sunny day it was just right. Glad they have reopened after the kitchen renovation.

Went with my family’s last day in town and they’re pretty picky eaters so wasn’t sure how they’d like it. But it turned out great, they loved the food and the service was pretty good. Just a great experience overall.

We have heard and read about Mesh for years and finally had the chance to try it. We found the location to be quite nice and well decorated. The staff was friendly, although not quite as knowledgeable about the extensive wine list as one might expect (no mention was made of a Somm). The food was certainly good, but not at the level that we had expected given the reputation. While we'd certainly not be opposed to returning, there are so many good restaurants in the area, we'd absolutely go to others again before choosing Mesh again.
