I hadn't been to Mez in many years however we had some family flying in and decided to meet there. It was so good - delicious food.

I had a better experience when I came here for lunch.
The service is good and the portions are generous- I had the fish tacos, which I thought were good-- ask for the sauce on the side if you don't love spicy food. My date had the veggie/portabella fajitas and the veggies were quite greasy-- it doesn't take much oil to make veggies taste good, folks! It's an interesting place, but way too loud when there are large groups of people there. I wont say I will never go back, but it will probably be a while. I typically find myself disappointed when eating out these days- I feel like I can have a much nicer and healthier meal at home and not have to deal with all the other "stuff" - of course, not doing the dishes is nice.. Maybe give Mez a try and see what you think.

The food was so-so. The kitchen refused special requests. My friend asked for extra lemon. She got two tiny pieces. She asked again and got two more tiny pieces.

Mez is one of my 'go to' restaurants. The food is always consistent and fresh, service is always good. It is an excellent restaurant for business dinners as well. You cannot go wrong with a lunch or dinner at Mez!

My lunch was excellent! I had the vegetarian tacos. However one of the women with me had enchiladas that were cold. They remade them but it was weird. My other friend got the Verde salad that she and I both love, but it looked pretty pathetic. I think it used to be served in a bowl? And later she told me that what was missing was the queso. I was really disappointed because I usually love eating there.

I return here yearly when I attend a conference. The food is still good but not as good as previous years (salad greens were not so fresh, guacamole had too much salt and my salmon was not hot.
Service still excellent!

Expected something more than a staple Tex-Mex meal given the description of "contemporary Mexican Cuisine". In reality, it's merely 1/2 a tick more than any number of mediocre cookie-cutter, on size fits all Tex-Mex eatery or chain.

Excellent Food and Service! Our waiter was attentive and the recommendations were great. We had chips with Salsa, the Brisket, Tacos, and Enchilada, and all were consistently good. I would recommend Mez for any outing, but it was a great setting for our business meeting.

The Queso flameado was not what we expected. Definitely is not authentic and has too many and unnecessary things. Adding tomato, Poblano peppers, goat cheese an the salsa verde on the bottom changes and even destroys the original flavors and good taste for an appetizer. We added Chorizo and we regretted doing it. The chorizo is not authentic and it looked and tasted more like ground beef. Some times and in particular this case Less is More.

This experience with Mez was one of the best I've ever had for lunch. To be fair, we did go three days after Christmas, but it was awesome. Parking, which is normally a headache, was not an issue. We were seated immediately. I had the special and my friend had the spinach enchiladas. Both were delicious. The waiter had no problem separating our check, as we split the chips & salsa appetizer. Great Job, Mez! I hope you are able to get your parking situation figured out so I can come more frequently!
