 (El Paso)·Dined on January 1, 2018

my new york steak was tough and served luke warm. The clam chowder was watery and lacked consistence. The lobster was rubbery.
The Mesa Martini was superb and deserts as well.

The entertainment was excellent and performers were professional. The Mesa Grill staff should be mindful of audience and try to expedite or take a low profile to stop blocking the stage.
The sound system was weak and took away from the great show.

Overall a good experience but deeply disappointed on food. Ordinarily Mesa Street serves an excellent cuisine.

Crab stuffed ravioli was delicious, and they didn’t skimp on the crab stuffing! Nice ambiance in the bar with quiet music playing in the background, so it was easy to talk. Any time we are in El Paso we make it a point to dine here.

Everything was delicious. I was disappoint that there was no live music. A place like this should have Live Music. Also, I was hoping our table would be decorated for our "Anniversary".

The food took about an hour to come out because there was a party of 20 people ahead of us. Would it had not been for the waiter that brought us an appetizer and bread, we would have left. The waiter took very good care of us and made sure we didn’t get anxious or upset.

Our server, Richard, met us at the door and took us to a table that met our needs - my wife has mobility issues. He was very attentive without being aggressive or intrusive. His suggestions for food and wine were excellent. We had a great time celebrating our 30th Anniversary.

Richard was a wonderful server and made many great recommendations! The wine he suggested was my favorite (the sweet red wine) and the sea bass was very tasty. My boyfriend had the tuna and loved it as well. The atmosphere was quiet and romantic too. It's a place we would definitely come back to for another date night!

Review on TA. Really loved the service. Food very good- Chilean Sea bass for me; not crazy about the accompaniment as ink flavored pasta is too delicate for a heavy spicy sauce but I still enjoyed the fish, son lamb which he liked a lot, good sauce.
Husband pork chop very flavorful. Wine recommendation good. All in all a pleasant night for our last on vacation. Glad we went and enjoyed experience.

 (Austin)·Dined on August 6, 2017

Great local place that tries very hard to be high end.

My only compliants are:

1. the lack of discretion from the hostess. I was wearing a hat when I came in the front door and she rather forcely told me I had to remove my hat as there was a dress code. No problem removing my hat (would have done so anyway) but she lacked tact and professionalism for a resturant that is top of the list for EP.

2. I would also add that the my glass of red wine was not served at the right temperature - again i expect more from high end.

The food however was outstanding with great service.

Everything was excellent except they canceled my reservation when they called me to confirm we were going (8 business partners not just 2 like mandated by Open Tabke app).
I hope I got the points for taking my business crew to this place.

Lovely ambience. Food very good and beautifully presented. Superb ambience. Service also very good; however a bit of upselling pressure from waiter was uncomfortable. Good value for money spent. As a vegetarian I would have appreciated another option or two but the available pasta choice was wonderful.

The table I reserved was not given to us once we were seated it took 25 minutes for them to find menus for us then we were told that a lot of things on the menu were not available however they were actually work we were never offered refills or dessert and it took another 20 minutes once requested the check for it to be brought to us absolutely a horrible experience that I would not recommend for anyone
