We love Mesa Urbana. It is unique, has incredible food , a wonderful menu and daily specials, drinks, and service !
Tacos were amazing as always. Service was mediocre. We had to ask if we had a server. And top that off, our table wobbled so needed them to fix that as well.
Great food& service!!!
Cute place, interesting menu. A friend and I shared three appetizers as our meal - the ceviche, the queso fundido and the empanada. It was quite a lot of food for the two of us. We liked the queso the best. The empanada was very filling but tasty. The ceviche was good, but we both agreed we were expecting brighter, bolder flavors - it had more of a Mediterranean seasoning and flavor because this place is kind of a Mexican/Mediterranean/Asian fusion joint. If we go back, we will definitely try the entrees because diners near us has plates that looked delicious. The service was great! Our waitress was helpful and attentive, and others stopped by often to clear plates, refill drinks, etc. It gets pretty loud after 7 p.m., no if you want to have a conversation, go early.
Excellent food and service. The only drawbacks are that is a little cramped and the price (over $60 per person which does match the food quality but not the environment)
Food and service is outstanding. Cocktails very well made. It wasn’t crowded when we were there, so it wasn’t noisy at all. When it’s crowded , which it usually is, it’s noisy.
My favorite restaurant. Wonderful Mexican fusion dining. Best salsa and guacamole ever! Great, friendly service. Beautiful decor.
The food is always delicious and consistent.
Solid suburban, upscale Mexican -- not Tex/Mex which is a relief. The food is very good, though somewhat unexpected menu choices. Great cocktail menu, attentive service and fun ambiance.
Great food. Friendly service. I recommend the ceviche.
Overall experience was good! All 3 of us ordered the salmon with mango! It was delicious as always (have eaten it all 3 times I have been there). However my friend had a hot pepper in his dish, which was practically intolerable! There was clearly no mention of peppers in this dish! We finally were able to flag down a waitress, who went to the kitchen to inquire with the chef. Apparently the kitchen uses hot peppers in the sauce and admitted that a pepper may have mistakenly made it to the plate.
No one offered to do anything... not even an apology! This was disappointing and not good customer service. Makes me think twice about returning. Too bad!
Excellent food, freshly prepared and unique presentation. Very accommodating and excellent service. A gem hidden in a little strip mall.
This one of my favorite neighborhood spots.
Extremely satisfied every time I come here. Never ceases to disappoint. This place is one of the highest quality and they do know what they are doing from food, to service to ambiance. Can't get enough of this place.
Everything about this place. From the second you walk in. They are so welcoming. Sat at the bar. Best ceviche in the world. We had steak and tacos at our table. Loved it all. Great Sauvignon Blanc too.
We LOVE this place and come back often. Too bad the grilled octopus app and eggplant app are gone from the menu bit sometimes come back as specials. Never had a meal that wasn't great including the salmon, skirt steak, rack of lamb and scallops entrees. The margherita are top notch. The hosts and wait staff are friendly and know the regulars. The noise level can be challenging at times.
Great food and accommodations on what seemed like a very busy Valentine's Day night!
Delicious food, such an interesting menu. Great meal, will be back!
What a nice dinner. We made a reservation for right at open, my wife and I and our toddler. The waitstaff was great and they got a high chair for us. There was also cocktail hour going on, and another couple small parties. The food was an awesome fusion, and there was a kids menu, which I didn’t necessarily expect. So we got the quesadilla for our toddler... which was probably the most impressive quesadilla I’ve seen, for adults or otherwise. My wife got the fish tacos and I got the langoustine special, both of which were awesome. And we got the queso fundido appetizer and elote side, both excellent. The handcrafted cocktails sounded amazing, but it wasn’t in the cards for the night. My wife and I look forward to checking it out again on our own in the near future.
Have eaten here several times. Food seems to be Mexican fusion, always great. This time was no exception. Too bad they discontinued the eggplant side dish... one of my favorites. Friendly and attentive service.
What a neighborhood gem! No matter what we get, it’s amazing in flavor, presentation, and portion. Lamb, steak, salmon are just a few of their entrees. Ceviche trio, empanadas or the best guacamole anywhere are a few of our favorite appetizers. But the mussels are to die for. Dessert: always a couple options but any bread pudding there (flavors change) is THE best I’ve ever had. This chef is fantastic. And then there’s the cocktails!! Edgar is a great mixologist and always creating new cocktails. Two thumbs up!
Went to celebrate Mesa Urbana’s 4th anniversary! Great dinner, food and drinks at Mesa are always top notch! One of our favorite places to go out to eat
delicious food with nice atmosphere- everyone was very nice and accomodating- group of ladies sitting next to us was extremely loud which made it hard for us to enjoy our conversation
I love this place! The ambiance is great for a nice dinner and the food is Delicious! The owner is a pleasure and the staff is friendly and helpful!
Mesa Urbana was fantatic. We had a large group and our server was absolutely amazing. Great service, split all of our checks, made sure we were taken care of. I was so impressed with the margaritas.
It can be really difficult to find a place to host over 10 people, and this was absolutely fantastic. We will absolutely be back.
First time there, but will definitely be going back. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. The food and drinks were delicious!
The food was ok. Drinks and food a little pricy. The service was very good.
We love it here! My favorite and the drinks are outstanding!!!
Always enjoy our time here. Excellent drinks, delicious house made chips and love the beautiful veggie spread with the guacamole.
Great food. Excellent drinks. Fun take on traditional Mexican cuisine. A fun place to dine!
The specials are great. Usually a seafood selection. Last nite ahi tuna. It was very very good
We love this place! The food and drinks are so fresh! Love JP and the bartenders! They will make you anything you want and let you try a sample of their specialties if you sit at the bar!
The empanada is amazing! The ceviche trio as an appetizer is the best! I usually have it as my meal!
The guacamole and chips are spot on! This place is a hidden gem!
We went on New Years Eve. Everything about it made the evening special the Salmon, Scallops and lamb chops are especially delicious with a beautiful presentation. The guacamole was awesome!
Great food, great experience. Will certainly go back, highly recommended.
Awesome Creative Cuisine. Best Mussels Ever! Follow the waiststaff’s advice. You can’t go wrong!
It’s our go to for our out of town guests as well as our everyday dining!
Every meal we have at Mesa is great. We love everything we’ve tried, and the service is excellent. We need to take more people with us next time, so we can taste new dishes. It’s a great place for sharing!
Everything was delicious as usual! Friendly wait staff.
