Excellent food and attentive waiters. Guacamole made table-side is fantastic! We had theater tickets and they were very attentive in getting our dinner quickly and getting us on our way. Seating on the patio is very nice and much quieter than inside the restaurant.
My wife end me really love Mezcal Restaurant
The food is amazing and the service wow
Love the mole, tableside quacamole and Oaxacan coffee.
I was wonderfully surprised with the level of service and great food I strongly recommend the Mezcalrita.
Warm welcome, quick service, nice waiters, interesting and authentic. Fabulous guacamole made table side , vodka tonic with generous vodka.
Excellent food and service. Unusual Mexican faire. Much different than traditional Mexican resturants.
I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to drink blended Margarita.
I absolutely loved it here - the food was amazing and service was great! Luckily it wasn't too loud because my only complaint was that I had a party of 11 and our seats were very far away, so the table was split into three different conversations for all of dinner instead of one large one. Nonetheless, excellent dinner and I'll definitely be back!
Mezcal is one of my downtown SJ go-to places. I especially like the enmoladas and sea bass, and, of course, the mezcalrita
We were celebrating a friend’s birthday.
When we needed something, we had to keep looking for our server. We would ask the busboy to find him. I don’t think he ever came to our table to ask if we needed anything.
Food was good. Nice decor.
First time there. Waiter was super helpful, brought us different sauces to taste before ordering. Food was different, but really yummy. Restaurant was adorable. We will return.
The food and authenticity was spot on with relatively reasonable pricing. The staff really seemed to feel that they cared about the customer.
Expensive for what you got and the tacos weren’t the greatest...
Excellent overall meal and experience !! Make sure to have a reservation as the restaurant is very busy and fills up quickly!! From date night to Oaxacan styled Mexican food trip with friends!!! Enjoy it!
It was very pleasant!
Great place to go have a Mexican meal. The guacamole is outstanding, made tableside. We went for national margarita day and they had $8 margaritas which were delicious!
A real gem of a unique restaurant. Not your every day Mexican fare, for sure. I'll be back!
Monthly foody-gang gathering to find something new
The food is great ,service was great but a little over priced for the size of the dishes (food amount). Overall the place is great.
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!
