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.

Lamb request was for medium but was very over done and over seasoned.
Chilean Sea Bass very good but should be served over rice with the sauce.

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.

Our server was very attentive and polite. The restaurant was quite and the setting romantic. The food was absolutely amazing. The steaks were cooked as ordered and the lobster mac and cheese was delicious. The complimentary red velvet birthday cake was the perfect size for two and tasted great! Perfect romantic birthday dinner date for two.

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.

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.

We were disappointed with our most recent visit. The hostess seated us in the dining room where we were ignored. Finally a waiter came by and explained we should not have been seated there due to a large party that was coming in. So we moved to the bar area. One waiter was very attentive to his patrons. But he was not our waiter. Our server seemed to be in a rush. She did not time our order, she never checked on us. We asked to split a salad but she put one down in the middle of the table and never offered plates. Thank goodness the busboy was attentive. He gets 5 stars.

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.
