This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Raleigh area. Wonderful atmosphere, staff and food.
The server sold us on how great an appetizer was. We ordered it, but he brought our entree’s out first, then the appetizer after we finished our meal.
Food was good quality but way too bland.
We had a group , many from out of town and the servers did a great job to keep us together. They really went out of their way to help us. We were all happy with our meals and their over and above consideration.
MEZ delivers when it comes to tasty food with outstanding service.
Was there for lunch to meet some acquaintences, service was great, would recommend it for a business or social lunch.
Great drinks! Great flan! Otherwise not repeatable,
We are “regulars” and love Mez. The Salmon entree with sweet potato mash & slivered brussel sprouts is outstanding!!! However, our server was completely uneducated about the menu and just about every other detail wrt food & beverage service. This is not the norm for this great place.
Bland, boring food for lunch. Mez wants you to think it provides a hip gourmet experience, but absolutely no thought (and not much taste) put into the food. Chicken fajitas were just boring - no evidence that the chicken was grilled (closer to boiled) and, no chips or salsa provided to the table (at least salsa would have provided a little flavor). Major disappointment.
So I have been to Mez many times over the last 5 years and it has been my go to for great mexican food. The empanadas and guac are my faves! The food has always been fresh and well made. This time I was disappointed. The food was lacking in flavor and freshness. The quac was a disappointment. I was told there is a new chef with a Spanish cooking background. Not a fan so far but may have been what I ordered. I'll give it another try!
Great restaurant but a bit too noisy, which is a common problem these days. Nevertheless, it’s an excellent choice for a business lunch in the RTP area.
First time here and it did not disappoint. Will definitely recommend and return to this place.
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 love it here
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.
