Excellent service at a favorite spot of ours especially for our family group. Kids enjoyed their tacos and we loved our varied entrees. Ribeye steak was cooked perfectly as was requested. Always a go-to place for us. Thanks to Labria our waitress who put up with our indecision... great choices.
I booked a table on line for 2. My business lunch companion and I arrived separately and both asked for the reservation under my name but were sat at different ends of the restaurant at separate tables. Since we did not know each other by sight we wasted half our meeting time before everything got figured out. Overall service was ok but front of house seemed overwhelmed by the lunchtime rush.
Food and service was great!
Food and service was great, as usual! Best guac EVER!
Great service, food, and margaritas!
As always, a wonderful experience. Brought friends from out of town and they loved it. Our server, “Bacon” was attentive and wonderful. Will definitely be back with family and friends.
Dined on the patio. It was lovely! Service by Erica excellent. My scallops special was very good— just a little too much olive oil. My friend thoroughly enjoyed beef tacos made with requested flour tortillas.
This is a rather loud place due to the high ceiling and echo. The seating upstairs in the separate room might be better. The food was tasty, the service was good and the price reasonable. I would go again during a less busy time and maybe try to get a table in the area upstairs with less noise.
Terrible. Made a reservation for a special date night. They tried to seat us at a high top bar table in the bar instead of the main dining room. It was right near the entrance and people were walking through. I asked for a different table. I made the reservation days in advance and did not expect to be seated somewhere so uncomfortable. The hostesss was very rude and said she couldn’t find us another table. I asked to speak to the manager. The manager was very condescending. We left. Won’t be back there or any of the Chapel Hill Restaurant Group properties. Eating out is supposed to be a nice experience and when you make a reservation you expect to get a nice table disappointing. Ruined our evening.
Birthday Dinner service was excellent!
I love Mez. This time I had the baked enchiladas suiza - delicious, with just enough of a spicy kick. I also tried a cup of the corn soup - rich and creamy with sweet corn and cheese (manchego maybe?) The enchiladas also came with Mexican street corn, which I took home for the next day, along with one of my enchiladas (it was a lot of food). I love Mexican street corn but this was especially good. I may start stopping by just to pick up street corn for lunch.
Service was excellent. Food was cooked to order and delicious. Was a great experience.
Best guacamole in town! Highly recommended. Good lunch.
First time dining at Mez. I will return. The food was fantastic!
The service was outstanding. While they no longer have my favorite lunchtime dish of catfish on a grit cake with fresh avocado, they did have a similar, new catfish dish with black beans and fresh corn that was quite good. I definitely recommend the restaurant to others.
The dessert was fabulous!!! We had an orange flan that was wonderful!! We go there every year in Raleigh when we come for a pharmacy convention.
Delicious food- upscale take on Mexican. Good cocktails & desserts.
Mez gave excellent service, and adjusted to our need for a taste of ice cream to clear the heat from a salsa that was too hot for one of the three of us. They responded swiftly and courteously. All main dishes were excellent. We had our preferred table, and conversation was relatively easy - an expected level of Saturday night background noise.
Always good food and nice setting! Date night with wife, nice time.
Met a candidate for lunch. Ordered the catfish bowl and fresh guac. Both were excellent. Service was attentive. Great place for get togethers or meetings. Great menu with fresh ingredients.
Computers went down. Took forever to get our check. Server was distracted or busy. Never got water or soda refilled.
Mez is always great. The margaritas were cold and fresh and the amberjack taco and chili rellanos were delicious. We’ll be back again soon. Our waiter did not rush us through our meal . We enjoyed the whole experience.
Had a good meal here. Reasonably priced. Fast service. Met expectations.
We just cam from our first visit to MEZ, and it was very good. We started with the guacamole, a bit smooth for my taste, I prefer mashed and chunky with fresh cilantro, but it was good. The corn chips were good quality, and tasted made in house. We had the Summer Thyme Cocktail, which was tequila, aged in old whiskey barrels, with blueberries, fresh thyme, and a syrup. It was well made, and well balanced, and it actually came very quick! Which is nice for a craft cocktail. Meals were the the Enchiladas Suizas, and it was the best Suizas I had ever had. It was served with a grilled corn on the cob, and that was amazing too. We also had the NC Pork Chop with NC kale. It was fantastic. Not a very big portion, but the ramp pesto was really, really good. They served the dish with roasted potatoes, and they tasted kind of old, and not on the same par as the other food.
The atmosphere is new and clean and feels like a chain restaurant, but nice. It is bright and comfortable. Our server was Erica, and she is worth mentioning. She offered the perfect answer to "it's our first time, what do you recommend?" They should video her response, because it is how every server SHOULD do it. She mentioned three items customers always go crazy for, and she mentioned the one item she just loves! She also mentioned the seasonal and fresh ingredients. She was comfortable, and knowledgable and I find that a rare quality.
Overall, the service was spectacular, ask for Erica, and the entrees were memorable too. We will be back!
Great dinner we celebrated my wife’s birthday. We were pleased
Want to go back and try more of the offerings!
I always enjoy my meals at Mez. Great food and drinks.
Had a reservation- easy to get seated, high quality food, nice atmosphere.
Food was delicious and our waiter was wonderful! Lovely atmosphere.
Good food, good service, loud noise due to repairs on upstairs patio.
Let me say that the restaurant was very full for a Wednesday night. So, there are many people who like the style of food served. For us it was way too smoky- maybe due to the Chipotle. We did not like the salsa, the frozen margarita (really- I didn't like the margarita because it tasted smoky), the baked enchilada (very dry), the Chili Rellenos (Very little cheese). We did like the queso- it was really good cheese and was great. Caroline, the manager on duty and Eric our server, were both really accommodating. It wasn't their fault we didn't like the food.
The server was great.
Great service and food.
Good food, great service, incredibly fast order prep/delivery.
We were disappointed in our meal. We were a group of four and two of our entrees were unsatisfactory and had to be sent back. Mine was the Ancho Beef Brisket and it was, no exaggeration, half fat. It was replaced with a much leaner piece, which was edible, but not particularly good. Another member of our party’s dish was not prepared as requested and had to be replaced also. Even the two meals that we didn’t have to send back were not very good.
To compensate for the two meals that had to be sent back, management offered a free dessert — for one of us. When we remarked that we had to send back two dishes, they offered another free dessert.
We have enjoyed Mez in the past and hope that our experience was unusual. That said, we won’t be going back anytime soon.
Waitress was extremely rudev
Mez is always a nice dependable option in the area. The food and service are always great and we've never been disappointed going there. Great value at happy hour too.
Wonderful food with a nice and relaxing environment. Will absolutely recommend to others.
Absolutely love Mez! This is my 3rd time there and it never disappoints. The staff is professional and helpful every time I am there, the food is fabulous and the environment is trendy and cool. Have not been there for happy hour, but I am sure the bar would be lots of fun. I had the kale grain bowl with shrimp added and my guest had the brisket tacos, YUM!
Food is generally quite good. The Black and Blue tacos were a miss. The chewy flank steak should have been cut up (hard to eat chewy meat in a taco) and too much blue cheese was used. I sent it back and got the steak tacos, which were very good.
