We have been to Mezcal many times. It is always delicious. Service is attentive. One of our go to’s when downtown SJ
The food is always great and the micheladas are a must try! Everyone is friendly and they make you feel comfortable regardless of how crowded and busy they might be.
Two thumbs way up. Fabulous mole. The waiter brought us a taste of all three flavors to help us make our selection. The only downside was we felt incredibly rushed by the waiter. We had to tell him to go away at least four times. Don't force us to order as soon as the appetizers are delivered. Great food, great margaritas.
Lovely place in San Jose, within walking distance of the performing arts center which was convenient for a dinner date before a performance. Casual place but good food, not absolutely amazing but also not expensive. Would come back again.
The food quality and taste is not as good as I remember it.
The worst aervice and the food is not authentic. We ordered Shot of mezcal and a beer and waited more than 10 minutes for it while eating dinner and I asked them to cancel and and paid my bill and left the place.
We had a work team dinner there and it was a lot of fun and everyone had a good time. Lots of good options for meat eaters and vegetarians. It was a bit noisy due to another party, but good overall. Staff was super nice and helpful.
Authentic Mexican food and Mezcalritas. Our food - Avocado Prawns Salad and Sea Bass plate, were tasty and arrived timely. The service was attentive and prompt. Prices were very reasonable.
It was so good that we went back the next day - definitely try the fish,
Mezcal is close to our offices and it's often a first choice location for get-togethers and celebrations. On this last occasion, we were taking time to meet for the end of the year and saying goodbye to two valued colleagues who are retiring. We were a part of 11, large but not overly so.
I love that Mexcal uses an online reservation system. It makes things so much easier and it was a breeze to use. We have one more person attend but it wasn't really a problem (more on that later).
Some in our party ordered appetizers, which came out pretty quickly and seemed to be enjoyed by all who had them. The food overall was tasty and there were even options for the vegetarian and vegan members of our party. I ordered the salmon salad which had a wonderful taste and it was good, except that it made me sick. Within the hour of returning to my office, I was regretting my choice. Not sure if it was the salmon or the spinach, either way, I would skip it next time.
The reason I gave this experience an overall two stars was not because the food made me sick. I gave it two stars overall because of our server. Throughout our lunch, he was for lack of a better word, surely. He just made us feel like we were an imposition anytime we asked for anything i.e. forks, questions about the menu, etc. It was also hard to get his attention when we needed him, and his service was slow. I would have just put it down to an off day for him, but some in our party had been to Mezcal the week before and had the same experience with him.
It could be he needs to have some more customer service training that works on his soft skills.
So go for the great ambiance, stay away from the salmon salad, and if your server seems to act like you are beneath him, don't worry it's not you.
Great quality ingredients in their meals. Perhaps they could up their game with their drinks. Better ingredients in those
It was just....ok. I thought it would be better food. The service however was quite good.
The margarita pitchers are dangerously good. We had a group of 8 and went through 4 large pitchers.
The only thing was the waiter was 👎 not good in serving service to slow and he blame the kitchen but even wen I ask for a napkin he took to long I need to get up and pick up mmy selfh the napkin no good service
The food was bland and the service was very rude. Chips were stale. They did not refill water or clear all the plates
