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.

We came to celebrate Valentine's Day. The place was decorated beautifully and the staff at the door was very friendly. Unfortunately, our waiter must have been having a bad night because he was not friendly AT ALL.

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.

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.

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.
