A little disappointed. Service was great so no issues there. Food was ok. We had Jala Mari for appetizer and that was good. Pork and tuna we're pretty middle-of-the-road, not horrible but not great. We may or may not go back.

We made a reservation in the am for 6:30pm for the patio..
We got there and were told that the patio was closed due to an event.. that we could be seated inside but that service was slow and that the kitchen was on hold. We we also told that we were going to get bad service. Nevertheless we left as did other people that were waiting to be seated. No use in making reservation.. no one even called or emailed or anything to let us know that our reservation was not going to be respected. Horrible service.

Extremely bad managed, understaffed Ann unprepared to serve guests. Nobody there to apologize for 1:30hr waiting for our food and nobody told us they had not even started to prepare it. We paid our drinks and left, no manager on duty, all servers were frustrated and overwhelmed, the place was not even full.

Pedimos un rib eye bone eye de 52 oz y una ensalada jerusalem, el sabor es bueno, pero las porciones muy pequeñas a pesar de que era el corte más grande del menu.
El cocimiento estuvo muy bien.
No tienen nada para acompañar ( canasta de pan, mantequilla etc)

We went for an anniversary dinner thinking it would be an elegant experience. The waiter was excellent but the ambiance was disappointing and loud. A bread basket would have been nice, menus were soiled and needed to be replaced, and the food was just OK.

It wasn't the best meal we've had at the Mesa Grill, but overall it was good. The crab cake appetizer was very good as were the rib eye tacos and pork chop. The lobster mac and cheese side didn't shoe up until we had finished the meal because the first one was forgotten and burned. They took it off the tab.

I used to love this place but food quality has deteriorated. The beet salad had almost no flavor. The steaks were all charred. The steak soup was too salty. The food was average at best. The portions small (more garnish than calamari) and the prices too high ($300 for 4). I’m not sure if it was customers or workers very loud at the bar. Otherwise the atmosphere is nice. I just wish they put more effort into being good than looking good.

We had such awesome dinner on Sunday that we came back with family on Monday. Our server Richard was awesome on Monday! The food however was not as good as Sunday. We order the same appetizers and the smoked salmon wasn't the same as Sunday it didn't have the cream cheese spread on it at Sunday. The chicken dish that was ordered was over cooked and dry. The lobster mac and cheese was very dry. Very disappointed in the food quality in general. Just don't think I will eat there on a Monday or Tuesday. I figure the head chef must be off those days.

Very attentive service, great ambiance. Manhattan cocktail was well crafted. Wife’s sea bass was delicious, as were the creamed spinach and Brussels sprouts. My NY strip, on the other hand, while cooked and seasoned well, was very tough and chewy, obviously not a prime cut of beef nor worth the $41 it cost (steak only, no sides)! Very disappointing. The flourless chocolate torte was devine, but couldn’t redeem the poor quality steak, thus resulting in an overall 3-star experience.

Hello. This was our second visit to Mesa Street Grill. Overall, we had a pleasurable experience and the food was delicious.

Our only disappointment was due to a poor assumption. I scheduled the reservation for my wife's birthday and when calling to follow-up to the online reservation, my name and phone number was immediately recognized. Everything prior to arrival was very personable where we received excellent treatment.

Upon arrival, the hostess greeted us, asked and mentioned "Happy Birthday" to my wife, and then mentioned we have special night for you.

Unfortunately, everything after was just a casual night. I believe we up lived the personable treatment and were simply surprised as service was timely, then delayed. The personable treatment stayed with hostess and the rest of the night, we were two people ordering dinner and eating.

Again, the food was phenomenal and the experience was quiet/romantic. We would definitely recommend the dining experience to friends. As for "special" anniversary or birthday...we don't know if there's something special that you do for guest as we didn't recognize anything else. (not reference singing...but if you're looking for some examples, we've received more private sitting, light decorative confetti on the table, and a small plate that simply stated "Happy Birthday" in Chocolate frost/syrup before).

Thank you. Steve Donahue

LOVE this place! Would highly recommend for its amazing food and first class service. The dining area is beautiful and the outside patio is always great with live music on Saturdays. Been dining here for years and it never disappoints. My husband, kids and I recently celebrated an early Mothers Day dinner with my in-laws and it was perfect. My in-laws were very happy, we couldn't have picked a better place for our celebration.

Too expensive for the quality of food. Other Places in El Paso such as Gusto, have better stakes at a lower price. I had a New York Strip Stake was tough and grisly. Service was very good. I have eaten at this restaurant before, and always had a very good experience. Hopefully this was just a one time experience.

You will find a pleasing experience dining here. about the only negative statement that I can make about my experience dining here is that the kitchen did not seem to be able to handle a business dinner in the private room and the rest of the diners in the restaurant. We had to wait for our selections as priority went to the meeting. When we were served the food was good. The Bruschetta appetizer was delicious, and the 14oz ribeye was cooked to perfection and tasted as good as Texas steak could be. The staff was friendly and engaging, apologizing for the delay. The wine list is pleasing and reasonably priced. You will enjoy your meal here at the Mesa Street Grill.

We represented three generations and all of us very much liked our food. My 93-year-old neighbor and I had the salmon with ginger sauce and we both said we would order it again. My daughter (Assistant Dean at UTEP) had the shrimp tacos and also enjoyed it. Another birthday group was at a long table near us and the waitress sang "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" and "Las Mañanitas" which added to our enjoyment of our meal. Her voice and rendition were excellent. The non-flour Chocolate Cake was delicious as was my birthday cupcake.
We will all enjoy returning.
