Attentive service, good table. Friendly place🤗
We had a wonderful meal and our server Carlos was very attentive & helpful. The flavors were fresh & bright. We will definitely return.
Food was excellent: fresh ingredients with wonderful flavor combinations. Our group of 5 shared nearly all the small plates on offer and enjoyed each again great flavor combinations. Staff professional & so friendly & helpful. Crowd was all ages. Truly a wonderful experience.
Superb food, and in addition the staff is warm, welcoming and gracious.
Love this place!
This is a hidden gem in Lincoln Park. The food is exceptional and the staff bends over backward to make your experience an excellent one. Try the Queso Fundido for starters, and the Cinco Leches for desert!
Flavors were incredible.
The options available with the guacamole were unique and really appreciated.
We will be back.
Wonderful food and service.
Always great food — a quiet explosion of wonderful flavors each bite.
Amazing food and service! We had the carne asada and it was cooked perfectly. the brussel sprout appetizer was savory and delicious, and the guac with Jicama was tasty too. Highly receommended!
Fabulous food only exceeded by the fabulous service.
This place was excellent - queso fundido and carne asada both great, good mezcal cocktails, great service.
Creative fusion of middle eastern and Mexican ingredients and spices. Great experience every time I go there.
Food, service and ambience are wonderful and consistently so.
Food was outstanding and drinks were unique and interesting.
Used to go to the restaurant in Glenview and loved it. This effort has poor food and twice the price.
My wife’s birthday
Awesome as always
It was an amazing experience, food was great and the staff amazing!!
We loved the food and atmosphere! Service was great! Fantastic drinks, fish tacos delicious and the tuna was amazing. Skate fish and steak we all enjoyed. Queso Fundeto was yummy!
We would return. The food was good to very good the antidote is noisy but energizing. Gives you the feel of being in a sophisticated Latin - American restaurant. A bit pricy however.
We needed a place for 8 with short notice, popped up on google with 4.7 stars, exceeded all expectations. All was great, stop in the bar first, very cool spot with great drinks. Queso Fundido was probably our favorite, but really all of it was great. We'll be back.
We have been to Mesa Urbana several times and it never disappoints. The food is creative and flavor infused. The margaritas and other creative cocktails are equally fabulous. We highly recommend this gem.
As good as all of our friends told us the restaurant would be!
Excellent menu, delicious food and beautiful presentation! Service was also just perfect. This is a delightful addition to Chicago's restaurant scene.
A real hidden gem in the Gold Coast. The food is creative and amazing flavors. The outdoor patio is so comfortable it makes you feel like you are on vacation.
I enjoyed the ambiance and the food presentation, and the service was excellent. The food was a little pricey.
innovative and interesting food. a great blend of Mexican and Middle East traditions. Excellent service and great outdoor ambiance for as long as the weather holds.
The Salmon is fantastic! The quality and flavors of the food is superb.
Excellent food, excellent service!
Amazing food! Service was excellent - I highly recommend going!
We had a table outside which was lovely. The guacamole was very bland . It came with cut up veggies and we had to ask for chips. The skatewing looked beautiful. It was a huge piece of fish. It also tasted very bland, like it needed more seasoning. The mahi tacos were very good and a large portion
Wonderful food and exceptional service
The food was fantastic- great attention to detail on plating and flavors. Will definitely be coming back!
Tasty but overpriced and not great ambiance. Does have large outdoor space.
We waited about 1/2 hour for our table in spite of having a reservation. We got glasses of wine from the bar. Lovely and unusual wine list, but pricey. The Brussels sprout small plate was inedible. The taste of the gas or propane grill was the only flavor and the Brussels sprouts were rock hard. The queso fundido was good. We both ordered carne asada. Again it tasted mostly of gas grill or propane grill. The gorgeous asparagus had that taste too and I thought they were inedible. I wouldn’t come back.
as always a great dinner. such interesting food. creative. service as always was great. it's a real neighborhood gem. so happy they're close by!!!
The food was outstanding. While the menu description may seem simple, the food that comes out is anything but. Something as boring as salsa is absolutely delectable. Glazes on the salmon are to die for. The service was top notch. 10/10 would recommend!
The food was good, and the service was good. We sat outside, and it seemed very covid-safe. We"ll be back.
