We were seated in a major walk- through part of the restaurant which made it loud and distracting and took away from the beautiful atmosphere.

As usual Mesh service and food was excellent. My dining partner had a very restricted diet and she was happily accomodated. This was actually a lunch, and the restaurant was crowded, but the noise level was low and the service was prompt, but unobstrusive. Always a great experience

The food was good but didn't wow us especially for the price. We ordered an appetizer and they came back to say we had to pick something else since they were out. Which is fine but I was surprised when out waitress had.to take the first item off the bill and they didn't offer anything as an apology for the trouble. I didn't get a refill on my tea and we sat for 15-20 minutes after we asked for a desert menu. For the price everything was just OK.

Literally 10 minutes after I was seated I got a phone call telling me they were giving me 5 minutes to show up or they would release my reservation. Service was slow as it took almost an hour to get food. $14 for a glass of house wine... poor value. If I’m going to pay that much I would expect a higher level experience. Mesh used to be pretty good but they have gone downhill....looks like they started thinking too much of themselves and trying to live on their past instead of earning it in the present. Doubtful I’ll be back

Food was good but not worth what I paid. Pork belly was really a poor excuse for cheap bacon. No side dish and I paid for bread for our table of six. With so many restaurants now available I will look elsewhere next time.

The king pap calamari was excellent and my NY strip was perfectly cooked with a delicious glaze across the top.

Food was amazing, service excellent. The only downfall was that it was incredibly cold and drafty where we sat at the back of the restaurant. Hard to enjoy our meal while wearing our coats.

Emily was a great server. The food was fantastic. We had the special lobster shepherds pie. Delicious! We were seated so that we looked into the kitchen hallway, which was not the most pleasant. The host who sent us on New Year’s Eve was extremely casually dressed.

Food was ok. Portion was smaller than usual, egg was overcooked on my risotto. My son’s steak was delicious though. Felt like we were being rushed through our whole meal. Have normally had nothing but great experiences, but this visit wasn’t the best.

Went for New Year's eve for dinner. The only reservations that were available were in the bar. We had some concerns about that seating for dinner, but it turned out to be fine although sitting at a high top bar table is not quite as comfortable as the regular tables. The restaurant was busy but not overwhelmed like it is on a show night. Appetizers and food were served hot and delicious. One wrinkle was that the appetizers showed up before our cocktails did.

I love Mesh and I have been there multiple times. They were busy on NYE and my order didn’t come right so they sent it back to the kitchen but my husband had to wait around 10 min until I got my food. Also, he had to wait a long time and ask the server twice for his second glass of wine. They did not have the same level of service on NYE, but the manager came to us to apologize and did not charge our appetizers. The food was great as always. I just wish the service was better but I understand that these things happen.

We were politely greeted as soon as we walked in and we were seated immediately. Our reservation was for bar seating which involved a high table towards the back wall giving us a good view of the area and out of the way of immediate foot traffic.
Our waiter was great, picking up our drink order immediately and giving us just the right amount of time before going over the evening’s specials...which I ordered from. We enjoyed our appetizer and towards the end of it, our waiter took our dinner order. I really appreciate that — gives us time to enjoy our time there, not being rushed between courses.
The drinks were good and cold, the food was excellent and portions were just right and the ambiance was pleasant enough we chose to stay for another drink and order dessert.
Love this restaurant and look forward to our next visit.

Food was ok, but overpriced. Service was lacking. Waitress never made eye contact and mostly mumbled in a soft whisper. My wife had to ask for a refill on her tea and I was not asked about a refill on my beer. Overall a disappointing experience.

We've always loved Mesh for dinner, and Cunningham restaurants in general. However, we had a horrible experience here for Sunday brunch. Would not recommend. I do feel like it was primarily the service that made the difference. Staff seemed trained poorly and service took too long for how minimally busy they were. Disappointing.

The flavor of the food of all the food we had was good, but my steak was very over cooked and dry, while my husband’s was almost raw. Also, my food was just about room temperature when I received it.

Reserved a specific table within restaurant, as we arrived they had already sat a group there even though we confirmed in the morning. As they were trying to accommodate, they offered a second table and as we were standing at the host stand they sat another party at that table. Eventually had to sit at a table much to big for our party with 3 open spots. Waitress was very nice and sweet. Food was decent

Overall the restaurant is stagnant. We frequent Cunningham restaurants and Mesh was one of our favorites. It’s been a couple of years since we have been there and the overall experience has decreased while the costs has not. Probably won’t be back for a while. Hopefully they get back to what where they were.

A great place to go for any occasion! We went here for our family Christmas dinner and as soon as we sat down at our table our waiter was very attentive to our table. He knew both the wine and food menu well and was able to make suggestions for us. The food was absolutely phenomenal! I had the short rib grilled cheese with the upgraded truffle fries! The short ribs were tender and the cheese was decadent with out being over powering. Finished off the meal with the chocolate raspberry ice cream. Loved every bite! Can’t wait to go back!

I’ve never been to Mesh for brunch; but I’ll definitely go again! I was happy with everything, except the brunch options had little to pick from, for someone that’s allergic to dairy, like me. I got the steak & eggs which was incredible! Overall I was ecstatic & very happy with our choice for girls Christmas brunch!
