Great food and great atmosphere, love the food and service is always good
FOOD WAS NOT YOUR NORMAL RUN OF THE MILL MEXICAN. LOTS OF NEW ITEMS WE HAVEN'T SEEN OR TASTED ON A MENU BEFORE. STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY.
Went for dinner. We had some great Mezcal Margaritas. For an appetizer we had their chapulines (fried crickets) they were surprisingly good. Their mole dishes are delicious
Very good wait staff. Tough sitting next to hostess station looking right over our table. Guacamole was excellent.
Not recommended. Food was well below mediocre. Surely it is possible to make better Mexican food in San Jose?
The food was very mediocre seriously lacking flavor.
Easy walk to downtown events from the restaurant. Good food, casual ambience.
Not my first time at this restaurant and I will return however when we arrived for our reservation it had been given to someone else who claimed to be me. That seemed odd considering my name is not common but we were given a table quickly outdoors vs indoors.
Tasty regional cuisine and yummy margaritas, never disappoints.
Good Customer Service. Different cuisine.
Server was really nice and prompt!
The Perfect Margarita was great and highly recommend the tortilla soup!
Amazing, authentic Mexican food... there is no other place in San José like it!!!
I love the decor and I definetly recommend the enchiladas suizas.
Food is great, but limited menu. Cozy atmosphere, good drinks.
We had the salmon that was outstanding! Perfectly cooked with a nice array of vegetables and pickled onions. I was disappointed in the small size of the rice pudding considering the price but the the plantains made up for it.
Always constantly good and open on Sundays and Mondays.
Been going to Mezcal since the restaurant opened. Never had a bad service and food is always good!!!
Fantastic food and customer service with a great vibe
Just an awful experience. We came here because it was close proximity for an event we were at. We were seated quickly and served chips. Service was intermittent, at best. After we ordered, we waited approximately 45 minutes for our food. They served us the incorrect food, which we didn't even know about because the food all looked the same for the enchiladas. I also have a peanut allergy, and despite me telling the waiter this before ordering, I had a reaction. Luckily I ate with caution.
Then, we were forced to tip 20% despite getting terrible service. This place was an F-minus.
Fabulous presentation, atmosphere, decor and service.
More specifically- the table side guacamole (w/everything) is quite good! They say you know it's great establishment if the chips are superb- well they are. The salsa is nice and spicy too.
The closer is the Mole. To die for... Definitely up for a near future revisit.
Mezcal has become a favourite restaurant for us! The menu offers a wonderful selection of Oaxacan dishes and there are vegetarian and/or vegan options available. Delicious food, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, and it's a very comfortable place. Love it!
Bar tender makes delicious drinks! She’s a busy bartender and can whip out drinks quickly! Thanks for suggesting the Chelada.....now my favorite!
Great place, good margaritas but they were OUT of guacamole. That can’t happen!!!
The chips were plentiful. The salsa was flavorful but had a little too much heat. My wife had the chicken flautas and they were crisp and tasty. I had the mole coloradito (red). The chicken was overcooked, so I chipped it up and let it soak in the mole sauce which helped. The sauce was good but not as flavorful as I was hoping. The portions weren’t overwhelming so that was good. The rice was good but they could’ve given us a little more. The fresh corn tortillas were really good. I had the mezcalrita which is a margarita made with mezcal and rim was salt and chili pepper was good and had just a little smoke.
Loved the really terrific mole and the outstanding margaritas. I'm a foodie, and it matched up with all of my expectations. The prices are moderate and the ambience is comfortable and attractive. Eating "outside" really is eating on an enclosed patio, and was quite comfortable, despite a bit of chill in the air; they have heat lamps which help. Service gracious and timely, and basically, we loved it!
Great first visit. Food and service was very good. Did not rush us even tho they had closed for the afternoon.
The mole sauces and mezcal cocktails are excellent
Always a favorite! We love the Perfect Margaritas and the 3 types of Mole. The service is always fun and attentive!
The service took forever and when the food finally arrived it looked like it was just thrown on a plate. Really wanted to like the place but it was not good the night we went.
My wife and I were excited to eat at Mezcal as I had once before eaten at the restaurant for a work event. The ambiance of the restaurant is excellent, however, the service was only fair and the food was disappointing as all dishes lacked flavor. We had ordered the Sea Bass which was overcooked, dry and had no flavor. Once the food arrived, the waiter never came back to the table to check on us. It felt like he knew we had been given a poorly cooked dish and was avoiding contact. At the end of the meal, I asked for the check and informed of the overcooked dish, half remaining in the dish. No manager or other staff came to our table or showed any concern. From where we live, traveling to downtown San Jose is never enjoyable, but were willing to bare the traffic and pay for parking to experience Mezcal. We will not be returning any time soon.
The food was mediocre. Otherwise, a nice place with a nice environment
Very excellent! Food and service was great!
A very good experience. Our check was a bit late in coming but the restaurant had filled up and our server was understandably busy. We'll be back.
Excellent ambiance and food was fantastic. Had the grilled salmon. Great value.
Good food and excellent service. I highly recommend this place to anyone who likes Mexican food
Loved it, staff was vary attentive and helpful - in providing suggestions and what drink compliments each dish best.
The mole is the reason to go here. It's great.
Excelente ambiente, buen trato muy recomendable para un celebración, una cena romántica.
