Our go to Mexican restaurant in Dallas. From the ambiance to the food, everything is amazing. The food is always delicious, I’ve never ordered anything I haven’t liked. The margs are amazing too! Definitely check out their happy hour, the drinks are really cheap during that time. I will keep coming back!

Was quiet and not busy when we were there for lun-ner (lunch/dinner) at 3 pm. Good food - example, the chips were fresh and warm and the salsa was obviously made on site dark and spicy but not overwhelmingly so. Our entrees were prepared and spiced appropriately. Mine had the spicy sauce on the side so plenty of ability to adjust the spiciness to one's own taste. Nice ambiance in the place and the wait staff was friendly, unobtrusive, and well informed on the various dishes.

Food and Drinks were great. Kitchen didn't not seem ready for the rush before the Eagles concert at the American Airlines Center. Some of the tables never got their food. Fortunately, we were not those people and really enjoyed it.

Fabulous food. I've never had Aztec inspired dishes and I'll be looking for more. Smoky salsa and homemade tortillas were a standout. My conchanita pibil was wonderful. A little noisy for my taste. Still, a keeper.

Food was OK; I have had better at MesoMaya in the past so hoping it was a one-off experience. Our table was ready perfectly on time which was my greatest concern due to it being lunch/brunch hour in downtown Dallas and we were o a tight timeline.

Wen enjoyed a wonderful dinner before a performance. Mesa Mayo is our preferred downtown restaurant when we have later plans, as the food is reliably delicious and the service is quick. Parking is also easy whether using valet or self park.

I've heard good things about this place so it must have been an off day. We had made a reservation for 4 people for 4:00pm but once we arrived, it still took about 5-10 minutes to be seated. The waitress came and took our drink order and our appetizer order fairly quickly and while the appetizer came out timely, we had already finished it before we ever got our drinks. We had to ask twice for more chips and salsa and our drinks including water were not refreshed in a timely manner at all. She ran out of water before she filled my glass and said she would return with more water but never did. There were several empty tables but many people were standing in line the majority of our time there. The food was delicious but the service wasn't good at all.

Great food, especially some of the seafood selections. Can be a bit crowded and loud at lunch, making it difficult to have a conversation. Ceviche and salmon entrees are standouts.
