    I really enjoyed celebrating my birthday at Mesa. The margarita flight is fun and delicious. It is however a little pricey in comparison to other Mexican restaurants. The food was good. The service was a little slow for not being very busy yet but she was friendly. We will go back and give it another try

    Went for Taco Tuesday and Tequila and was very disappointed. The Fajita sizzling plate came out with no sizzle, my friends steak tacos came out cold, drinks were just okay; let’s just say I wasn’t Happy.

    The food was great but the service has gone down considerably since the pandemic. After ordering, we didn’t see our waitress again until dinner was brought out. She disappeared again after that. No, she was not over-seated nor did it appear that they were short staffed.

    Honestly didn’t have a great experience. Booked the outdoor igloo and they forgot to assign us a server. Moved inside to tell them and sat inside hoping service would be better but it was mediocre at best. Everything took FOREVER and there were maybe two other tables being used in the entire place. Save yourself the headache and go somewhere else. Also do NOT order the avocado black bean tacos — basically a massive blob of cold guacamole in a tortilla with a few veggies sprinkled on top.

    Food was just ok, but over priced. We got two drinks that tasted like zero alcohol was in them. Sat in the igloo but the ground was really wet and the table was dirty when we got in there, even though we had a reservation. There was a hole in the igloo that was covered with a napkin. Service was slow. Food came out at different times and i got the fajitas but waited another 5 minutes for the tortillas. Won’t go back.

    Our server Cammy was amazing. After seeing some not so great reviews I was nervous. The food was excellent too! My mom ordered the enchiladas that were great. My son and I have fajitas that we’d definitely order again. We travels about an hour to do the igloo dining. It was cold but cute. Will return.

    Other than our table being ready at reservation time, this was not a great experience. Our server was very nice when she came to the table, but she didn't come often enough. Our apps came before our drinks, half of our foods were cold, and it took a conversation with the manager to get some face to face with our server. Food was good, but not worth the menu prices.

    Food and margaritas were amazing! The sangria however tasted like Hawaiian Punch and didn’t taste the wine at all that was inside. Didn’t want to complain and perhaps we should have. But at $40 for a pitcher, I certainly would have expected to taste the wine.

    We had a nice time however, the food was just ok. The Guacamole flight or trio wasn't very good..way too much lime. I ordered 2 tacos, one being the shredded chicken taco Americano. The shell was so tough I couldn't bite through it. The drinks were over priced and mostly ice. And lastly, the menu...oh Lord! It looks as though it was put together randomly...no rhythm or reason at all, tacos mixed in this drinks, all mixed up to where you easily miss things like the Margherita tower that we would have probably ordered had we seen it!

    Came for my birthday dinner with friends. We waited over 30 minutes to get our drinks after we ordered. Kitchen messed up multiple orders. Restaurant was “out” of many things we wanted to order. Couldn’t even get one of their famous shakes for my birthday, out of everything. Overall a poor experience and will not be going back again. Extremely disappointed.

    We waited ages to be sat down even though we had a reservation. Then, another wait for chips, salsa, and water. The chips were excessively salty. Then another long wait for food. Our server didn't know which dish was which- and that was a problem since half our party was vegetarians. That was finally sorted out- BUT- they got the order wrong, and one of the vegetarians got chicken. No apology. With so many good restaurants in Royal Oak, we wont be visiting again soon.

    I’ve been several times and this was by far the most disappointing. Our order took over 30 min and came out incorrect and it took almost an additional 45 minutes to get the correct order. We had a party of two and our meal took 2 hours. The waiter was so embarrassed that he took care of our bill which wasn’t fair to him due to a bad kitchen staff.

    I really enjoyed this restaurant the first time I visited however all my visits following have been a disaster. This visit was no different the food took forever the drinks were watered down the person working at the bar coughed like she needed to stay home for the entire time I waited she never washed her hands and at times coughed into the air without even trying to cover her mouth. The server was polite but it turns out she was new because the place also can’t keep staff for some reason. I was very disappointed because this place originally seemed like a great idea but this will be my last time trying to make it something that it is not.😩

    We were pretty disappointed with our meal. We got together for a celebration and everything was a mess. The drinks took forever and then the food took forever and when we finally did get our food it came with meat in it when it was supposed to be a vegetarian dish to begin with. Then they took 30 minutes to remake it so we had to take it to go since we were already there waiting for 2.5 hours. Then not only they didn’t comp it but when we took it home it was still wrong. We will not be back.

    We made a reservation for 6 on a Saturday night. Food and drinks were fine. Lobster taco really good. Tables we wobbly and no coasters for the drinks so the table was wet. Loud atmosphere. Had to almost shout to talk to each other. Decorated really cool.

    I’m not kidding when I say we waited 45 entire minutes to get drinks after sitting down. Even in a time where we all need to be more patient with understaffed restaurants, this was ridiculous. Two people splitting a simple basic pitcher of margaritas (which ended up being 3/4 ice) and waiting that long was just not acceptable. Food was… fine, but overpriced. The table we sat at was so small I could barely get my legs between the table legs, and I am not a large person. Overall one of the poorer dining experiences I’ve had.

    Beans and rice truly subpar. Margaritas were relatively weak, both in flavor and alc content. Our server Kayla (sp?) was awesome, highlight of the evening - great service, and she even walked my high-heeled tipsy beauty to the restroom with arms locked for stability. Tacos were mostly tasty, music was nice too. ☺️
