    Awesome atmosphere Great food This was really a fun place I will for sure visit again. The fire dancers were amazing. Beautiful and exotic. When you do bottle service and entire parade of girls with sparklers deliver the bottle to your table. Such a cool vibe.

    Love this place but the vibe was a little low key this time. Service was amazing, drinks were delicious! Food was ehhhhh I’d rather eat some where next time then come here for guac and drinks. I was charged an additional fee of $30 something for the table for dinner. I wasn’t aware of this surprise charge.Other than that this is definitely a good spot for drinks and ambiance.

    First of all you should know that they charge a $75 table fee and a corona fee. Food was good but came out at different times. You had to wait for the side dishes. We ordered salads they came out after our meal.Very expensive night for small amount of food

    What a great night!! I have brought a business associates for a dinner and it turn out as the best decision. Impressing atmosphere and a beautiful set up I felt like I was in a vacation in a tropical place. The service was great! The food was exceptionally Fantastic and the music was wow. Fire shows and an experience that I will recommend for any occasion. Over all I had an amazing time thank you LA MESA LOUNGE!!

    Most incredible restaurant in Los Angeles! Best dishes and music was immaculate! Super nice waitresses and bathroom attendant. The manager was also super cool. He came to our table and greeted all my guest respectfully. I would recommend La Mesa to everyone and their family and friends to check out! A+++++

    I had the best time with my girlfriends here!! Such a fun place and the vibe is amazing. I don’t know why people are complaining about the time limit - it’s standard in LA and expected! I was not bothered by it at all and it even said it before booking. The food was so so good!! I can’t wait to come back!

    I love this place !!! It’s just the food was not that great . We had a great service. But for the amount we spent I would have expected better tasting food , and please pass on desert we other all 3 deserts .., and we were voting between to see which one was eatable 🤦🏻‍♀️. But overall great ambience, fun and good for special events !

    It’s way too loud for date night because you can’t even hear your own thoughts lol but for a girls night out, it was perfect. I’m still confused on what The service charge was for. Usually that is for tip that they add but in this case it didn’t include the tip so what was it for?

    Our OpenTable waitlist addition was not honored and so we did not dine here. Upon arrival the hostess indicated they were fully booked for the evening. Not sure if this is the fault of the app or the restaurant so someone will need to improve this UX. We will try booking a table some other time.

    Cultural appropriation of tulum. There were no workers of color at all! This was more like Greece meets la than tulum. Service was slow and the waiters didn’t even know the menu.

    We felt very uncomfortable being that we were on a 90 minute time limit. We were not offered a second round of drinks during those 90 minutes. We were brought the tab and asked to leave. We spent $250 on three appetizers and 2 cocktails each. The drinks were not even that good. The decor was super cheap and makeshift looked like they shopped at the 99 cent store. Wouldn’t recommend this place. There are so many upscale restaurants in LA this is not one of them.

    We had 90 minutes only. Took very long to receive our 1 drink only each (4 girls) we all ordered filet mignon tacos (very tasty) 😊 women taking our order was rude towards the end. We still had some Wagyu sliders that needed to come out & she told us we had 15 min left. I responded (we are waiting on sliders still) she said (when they come out you can eat them and leave) rudely by the way. So I told her cancel it and we would just leave now. They charged a 20% service charge/covid we were not aware off 😬

    Quite frankly if I truly wanted to write a review I would have to write a book! One of the hottest new restaurants in 2021 and maybe even 2020. Food was 100% amazing, drinks were 200% delicious, service was 300% top notch! Something you get in Vegas. To top things off a mixture of great deserts to end the night. Loved it! Thanks Guys, keep up the good work.

    We made a reservation and waited over 20 mins extra. One of the Hostess was rude and unprofessional. She kept ignoring and letting others inside. After they paid attention to us they said they needed to get a table. Why have reservarions available if you no tables. Finally someone notice Sean 🙏🏼. He told the Hostess "Why havent they been seated, they been waiting for a while now". He then proceeded to get a table ready for us and walk us inside. He sure made our experience better. The drinks were okay and food was great Tomahawk and Lamp chops 😋. Overall the vibes were great.

    The food tasted really great. I ordered the lamb lollipops and they were tiny, plus my friends finished their food and mine still wasn’t out. I barely saw my waitress unfortunately. Also for being a Tulum inspired restaurant, the music did not fit. I was expecting reggaeton or more upbeat music. They had electronica music playing, just didn’t go together.
