Overall, great experience and service was great. Food was good but on the pricier side.
I love this place. Food is scrumptious and the service is great.
First visit there. The seafood pasta was delicious. My wife loved her jumbo scallops. I loved my meal. I will definitely return. Highly creative menu.
have enjoyed many dinners there, but the last one was different. Wine choices were very limited, and some cheap choices that were NOT good. Food was okay, waiter was on top of us too much. each time we have been there, it has been crowded, this time, it was really empty...
I love the salmon, the quality in an of itself is outstanding but the way it's prepared keeps me coming back for more! Drinks are fabulous too!
Great service and really good food. Totally enjoy the restaurant. My husband does not like Mexican food, but both times here he loved his food.
Charming, delicious Mexican bistro in a small strip mall was a susprisingly great find for dinner this week. Food was creative and very tasty! Original drink list-awesome margaritas! Happy hour food and drink menu available in the bar. Prices were a little higher than your average Mexican restaurant, but overall great experience. Empanada and flautas were amazing!
Staff was extremely friendly. We really enjoyed our first visit. Glad we found it on Open table.
The food is excellent, especially the empanada and salmon. The only drawback is how overfilled the space is. You can hardly move among the tables. So many people in a small space leads to a higher noise level and a stressful, not relaxed feeling. It was also very warm both times I was there. I hope they expand to a larger space soon.
I saw this restaurant on ABC's Hungry Hound segment and it looked good so decided to try it. I drove there from Aurora and wasn't sure what to expect. The restaurant exceeded our expectations! We were greeted by a couple of very nice people at the front door and seated. The waitress (forgot her name but she was Czechoslovakian) was very nice, provided excellent service and made good recommendations. The food was unique, fresh, creative and amazing- especially the butternut squash empanada. Best guacamole I have ever had.
People at next table had salmon that looked incredible and will be what I get the next time I am there. One person I was with stated that this is the best restaurant she has been to in 10-years.
Oh wait, perhaps I should give it an "average" review so that it is doesn't get too crowded when I want to go there so I don't have to wait (lol). The only critique I would give is that it is a little pricy and the Lentil/Spinach soup was little salty. Otherwise this restaurant was nearly a "10"!
We always enjoy our visit to Mesa Urbana. The food is great, the margaritas are THE BEST!
Fresh, creative gourmet Mexican food. Personable wait staff, attentive host Mo and room full of friendly diners. Absolutely a “10”.
Excellent Food, great service and fantastic specialty drinks make the restaurant tops on my list.
Outstanding... don’t walk run to this amazing dining experience
My girlfriend and I, went on a Saturday evening, early, we had reservations. Our dining experience was great from start to finish.
We were by a friendly, courteous host. Our reservation was noted, and we were walked to our table. they accommodated our request for a location change.
The table and setting, were neat and clean. A busboy immediately filled the water glasses and a friendly competent waiter was at out table.
The interior design and architecture is casual, yet very stylish and well done. By simple good design, the room is divided, front and back, into 2 distinct seating areas,
The food was outstanding. We had a chicken quesadilla appetizers. It was extremely good. For our entree, we had thick Ahi filets in a peppercorn breading, that was absolutely wonderful.
A manager was at the door, on our way out. He inquired about our meal and service. He was engaging and informative, and we spoke for about 10 minutes
Mesa Urbana is a great restaurant.
Salmon was amazing! Great guacamole. Service was a little annoying. Felt like he was rushing us.
Another great evening at Mesa Urbana! Mesa Margaritas were excellent and my salmon was so tasty and well prepared. Friendly service and attention from the owner made it a terrific night!
Mesa Urbana was fantastic! I had been waiting to get a reservation and decided to go on a Monday evening with a friend. It was amazing!! The food was exceptional, the service was very good and the atmosphere was fun. I will be going back again for sure and bringing even more friends!!
Overall the food was good. The only problem that I had was about the serves. He took to long to take our appetizer order, until I mentioned that we were ready. Once he placed the order he left to take a smoke break instead of taking our order. I noticed that when he came back he didn't even wash his hands.
I did mention to the hostess the lack of attention he was giving our table and he confronted me giving me excuses instead of taking care of the table and apologizing. At the end of our meal we had two birthdays (he brought us two desserts) but he didn't offer coffee or desserts to the rest of my guests.
I will return to the restaurant because the food is good but will try to get another server.
One of our favorite places to go. Love the food and staff very nice and attentive. Brought some friends with us this last time and they loved it as well.
Wonderful service. Outstanding food. Pleasant decor. One of my favorite go to places, occasion or not! Just love this restaurant.
The drinks are fantastic...my favorite is the Diablo margarita made with mezcal. It has a bit of kick. They serve a warm, tomatillo salsa with their chips. They also have a red salsa, too, also served warm. My absolute favorite dish is the mahi mahi tacos. I get it every time!
Great food, fantastic margaritas, nice ambiance. The salmon and he guacamole are to die for!
Terrific Mexican restaurant - one of the best in the suburbs. The owners are always there to greet you and are so welcoming. The drinks are great - creative margaritas and mojitos. We have gone several times and the meals are always terrific.
This place is very deceiving. It is in a strip mall and not easy to get to. But wow, is it worth it. Best margarita I ever had. The. Crab cake special was terrific, the salmon was outstanding. The banana cake was to die for. What an amazing meal. Can’t wait to return!
Food and service was great! But the restaurant is not conversation friendly. Tables are too close together and the noise level is extremely high. I wear hearing aids and I had to turn them all the way down because the noise hurt my ears. Must be the acoustics. Probably won’t return.
Great food. They are always welcoming. We always enjoy eating there and have returned many times because we it is so good.
Moe knows what he's doing! He greets you at the door, his employees like working for him, and the food is creative and delicious. Can't go wrong with a margarita or mojito either.
Waited 30 minutes beyond reservation time. Not sure why they couldn't honor our time.
Restaurant was very cold. They need to better control draft when door opens.
Food and drinks were very good.
Should be “everyday dining” but it’s a little pricey for what it is
This was our first visit to Mesa Urbana. Our meal was delicious. We had soup, a vegetarian entree, and chips and salsa. Even the chips were delicious, apparently house-made. Margaritas were tasty as well. The owner of the restaurant came to our table to make sure everything was fine. Our waitress, Nicole, was lovely. Overall, the four of us were very happy with our meal and plan to return.
Great food and service as always
The restaurant is 1st class from the owner to the bus boys
Everything was great, but the long table for 10 made conversation difficult - would have preferred seating on the ends of a shorter table. Service was fabulous!
Food is fabulous. Don’t be fooled by the strip mall location. Servers are great too.
This restaurant does not disappoint and on this trip the owners were so interested and involved! They really care about their restaurant and their food and it shows! We will be back soon.
Food is always good here which is why we keep coming back, but we had a 7pm reservation and we got there 6:55 and they told us it would be a while. At first we were upset because we had baby sitting issues and we’re on a time crunch, but thankfully they seated us by 7:10.
I wish they would of been more specific about our wait time.
It was my husband’s birthday.
I wanted to like it SO much more than I did!
Guac a little too limey; carne asada relatively flavorless (needed a great salsa); beans on side were great; watercress salad why? Corn tortillas great; Cauliflower ok but uninspired; vegetable entree over-garlicked; overall needs more focus, fire, flavor...fish dishes looked great but I noticed underdone; margaritas pretty good; service outstanding; it gets pretty loud; maybe we ordered the wrong things?
Food is very good but overpriced
