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.
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.
Mesa Urbana is one of our favorite local restaurants. We visit often and always enjoy a great meal, paired with great drinks and, served by a great team. I look forward to our next visit.
My all time favorite restaurant. Food and service is outstanding! Love this place!
A truly great find. We’re lucky to have it so near-by. We dine out often,and enjoy good food as much as good service.
The cocktails were lovely, but they were quite expensive. I also ordered Chardonnay, and got a 5 oz. pour for $14.00. Not a good value.
My husband ordered the mahi tacos, which were fair.
I ordered the salmon. It was good, but on the spicy side. The waitress said they were not spicy.
Food was good not great. Entrees are very expensive. Too expensive for a neighborhood store front. Hostess is rude and could benefit from customer service training!!!
Great drinks and great food to share with friends. Never disappointed after coming here. Keep up the good work.
Really, really outstanding food and friendly service. We've been here at peak times and not enjoyed the experience because of the crowds. We went early on a Sunday evening and had an absolutely wonderful meal.
Food was so so and noise level was too loud
This place had great reviews but a few people highlighted some issues. We went to see for ourselves. Unfortunately we had to agree with some of the not so great reviews. The ambience was very good as was the service. Plus all the food LOOKED terrific. But unfortunately the looks were deceiving. All thee dishes we had were presented very well but the taste was bland at best. Add to this the fact that everything at this restaurant is premium priced and I would have to say that we will likely not be back. A shame since we had such high hopes for this place.
Always enjoy going here. Food was delicious, service wonderful and just love going here
Food was good but too loud
I really like the menu twists at Mesa Urbana and the El Jefe margarita is the best. Sound level can be atrocious during busy times but this Thursday evening it was totally tolerable. Pricey so it’s not a weekly visit type of place but we try to visit every few months and have never left disappointed.
Tasty fusion food w Mexican flair. Pricey menu. Overall good quality. Delicious red sangria.
