I come to the Northbrook area 3-4 times per year and always have dinner at Mesa Urbana. It’s great!
We LOVE Mesa Urbana!! They treat you like family. The food is excellent, the bar has anything you want and if you need to alter a meal choice, they will do it, no problem! We have referred many friends to this restaurant and they love it too!! Don't forget to order the guacamole, it's the best in town!!
Authentic appetizers and the best margaritas! Try the Mussels.
We were seated right away according to our reservation. Food arrived in a timely manner and it was delicious. The waiter was very pleasant.
As always, a 5 star review to Moe and Mesa Urbana! A great night to celebrate our mom's 80th birthday!
Awesome food. Carne asada was fabulous. Definitely start with queso fundido
Too expensive but good good.
The food was great, portions were a little smaller than i would like for the price. Got the short rib tacos, and they fell apart on me everytime.
Best salmon I have ever had!
Great craft cocktails and the food had amazing flavors! Love that they served the guacamole with fresh veggies and not just chips. Located in an oldish strip mall but atmosphere inside is great! A little pricey but the quality of the food is totally worth it! Would definitely recommend!
Our 4th or 5th time at Mesa Urbana. Excellent food and great service.
Very different spin on Mexican food. Everything was very good. Only challenge was the noise level which made it hard to have a conversation. Otherwise everything was great! Will definitely go back again!!
My mom and i went for dinner and ordered 1 appetizer and 2 entrees, no drinks and the total came to $98 with tip. Food was very mediocre and the portions were small but the service was good.
I can’t believe such a fantastic restaurant is hidden in a strip mall. Will definitely be going back again. Went out with a group of girls and everything we had was absolutely delicious.
Best fish tacos ever!
Best salmon I have had.
Mesa was delicious. Service was perfect. Can’t wait to return.
Took our friends to Mesa Urbana for the first time and they loved it the same way we do. The food and the service makes you return. Try the special— they never disappoint. Can’t wait to try their new restaurant in Lincoln Park when it opens!
We were very pleased with our dinner and the friendly nature of everyone we encountered ar Mesa Urbana!
This place is a gem! Great food, beautifully presented and quiet enough to carry a conversation. Highly recommend. Fresh ingredients and the place is small but very nicely decorated z I will be back for dinner!!
Specials are fantastic for dinner
Delicious cauliflower and thought the portion size was rather larger compared to my expectations after reading reviews. Will definitely be back to try other dishes. I loved the octopus appetizer and queso fundido (although not your typical fundido). My husband liked his lamb a lot as well but said the portion was small.
Food was very good. Ordered Rock Shrimp risotto which was good but a little spicy. Only other comment is that they are pricey on their bar drinks.
Everyone was so nice and the food was exceptional. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food. Great service.
The food here is amazing! I highly recommend the Queso Fundito. Service is very good as well. The owner was walking around and very involved, making sure we were happy. Prices are a little high but it felt worth it.
Definitely will return. Absolutely amazing
From the Margarita to the coffee and all the other delicacies in between “WOW!!! my tastebuds were YUMMMMMM!!!!
Octopus appetizer was wonderful, as was the tuna special. The scallops themselves were very good and cooked perfectly, but wasn’t crazy about the preparation. Acorn squash needed salt, and green beans were very garlicky
The service of Andra was phenomenal, but the food was terribly overpriced; $9 for a small bowl of Mexican style corn is rediculous. They pour a good drink, but that, too, was priced too high. And the place was extremely and uncomfortably noisy; there was a business group of about 15 people all standing right behind our table having drinks and hors dourves, and they certainly did not use their inside voices.
Awesome restaurant. Delicious food all around... Unique flavors and beautifully plated. Margaritas fantastic!
Disappointing after reading all the positive reviews. Why? Over-priced for the mediocre quality. The restaurant tried too hard to make classic Mexican dishes, untraditional. Even the most basic offering like guacamole, was tasteless and bland. I will not go back to this restaurant.
Great place, handled our large group very well. We will bring clients here again!
Very good food...more options other than Mexican! A bit pricey!
Love the food. Wish they would do a flan for dessert!
we love the restaurant and recommend it to anyone who wants a fresh take on "Mexican" food.
We have NEVER been disappointed with the food. The staff are all wonderful also!
Amazing service and food! The guacamole is to die for.
Love the food here but it was so noisy that we were shouting to hear one another
Service was great from the moment we walked in the door. We were greeted with a smile. We had reservations for 4 people 2 of which were running 15 minutes late and they told us no problem. We sat at the bar had a yummy cocktail served by the very nice bartender. My only complaint was the noise level. Not a big deal for me but someone in our party made note of it and they were right.
Excellent food, great presentation and wow service!
