Mez never disappoints! The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I was glad that I had a reservation - it was packed on a Thursday lunch!

The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was perfect for a couples' night out. The pork shank fell off the bone and the presentation was delightful. The fajitas were excellent as was the corn soup. The tinga chicken had just the right amount of zing. We will be back!

We were early for our reservation and the hostess was quite rude about it. We did ultimately get seated early, but it wasn’t a very warm welcome.

Food was good, as usual. Server was rushing us. Two people in our party were still eating and he's asking the table if we want dessert. Basket of chips swept off the table when we were still snacking on them. We didn't appreciate feeling rushed through our meal.

the server appeared to be rushing us. this was valentines day. we had just arrived and she expected us to start ordering food right away. and annoyingly kept checking back every minute on us to get our food order. right after we finished our food without checking if we needed another drink she brought out the check.

I was on a solo business trip, and had dinner on a Thursday night. The place was packed, but my waiter was excellent. Very attentive and thoughtful in his suggestions. The food was terrific, as were the specialty drinks I ordered from the bar. This was a fantastic experience.

Beef stew was ok and carb laden with lots of rice and tortillas and potatoes and peas in the stew and very little stew at lunch—but server was nice and prompt, kept drinks refilled. Made a reservation which allowed me to be seated right away—others were waiting.

Terrible experience. Restaurant was empty yet service was lacking. Food came out cold, chicken tinga platter seemed as if it was leftover chicken. We sent it back and I was surprised that the Manager did not approach us regarding this. Mez, your manager should always try to make it right or at least mitigate the situation so that you might be able to turn around someone’s experience. Hence we will not be back.

Quite average. Very nice server. Fajitas were served on a plate not sizzling. Unremarkable at best. Everything came out so fast that it had to have been pre- prepared. Scant and dismal wine selection. One time was more than enough.
