Mexican
Mesita, which translates to “small table”, serves authentic, modern, Mexican cuisine in a vibrant atmosphere. The menu, created by Chef Victor Chicas, features fresh guacamole prepared table-side, mouth-watering Mexican street corn, fire-grilled fajitas, along with burritos, tortas, tacos and many other house-made Mexican dishes. The combination of our traditional menu and playful décor with our rustic Mexican flair provides a dining experience that truly embodies the Mexican spirit. Mesita is the newest addition to the Rockville Centre restaurant scene and we are steps away from the LIRR.

The food and drinks were delicious. The staff was attentive and kind. The restaurant is gorgeous. The bar was packed, so personally I would avoid it. Tableservice was perfect. We had an excellent time and will definitely return!

We enjoyed the food very much. The music in my opinion is too loud they should lower it a bit as we were 6 people and we had to shout to hear each other.

Excellent food & service but way too loud! May be ok for a bar experience but guests should be able to hear themselves talk & waitresses should be able to hear our orders when dining!

The noise level was so high that conversation was impossible. Booming nightclub style music and strobe lights in a sit down restaurant. What used to be the best margaritas were watered down. Was there even tequila in them? Used to be fabulous. Now I won’t go back.

Went there for a birthday dinner and everything was great. From the food to the service. We’ve gone a few times and it never disappoints. The sangria is delicious and the fajitas always have great flavor. The table side guacamole is also spectacular.

Food is great. Very nice decor. Great for a fun night out if you are staying local. My only complaint is that if you are going in hopes of being able to have a conversation - the music is VERY loud.

Great basic margarita and I’m picky - I make them fresh myself at home. Tamale was made in advance and then reheated in an oven with corn husk off - so it was a bit “crunchy” which really is not the core of a tamale. Taste was good. Pork dish was also good but deep flavors were a bit absent. Overall it was tasty however and I will go back.

While the service was very good, sorry I can't say the same for the food. Went on a recommendation from a family member. Hugely disappointed. I had the pulled pork enchiladas. They were dry & tasteless. My husband had the chicken fajitas fundido which he said were "OK". The only good thing was the peach (rose) sangria. Won't be going back there again. Would have gotten better food for much less money at Taco Bell. Again, if I were rating on the service, I would have given 4 stars. It's the food that I found totally disappointing

We really needed a food change, I know that sounds strange but we eat out so much and it's always Italian or American food, so we decided to try Mesita. We are so glad that tried this very fun place, I am sure that later in the evening it probably gets really loud but it was fine while we had dinner. The service was fabulous my husband could not get over how well the restaurant was run. He actually spoke to the manager on our way out. We will definitely be back for more.

Can I give it ZERO stars?! This place was awful, their food is overpriced and the portions are so small. Their taco tuesday menu is a joke and everything is so greasy and everything is an additional price! $2 for sour cream?!! The waitress will offer you everything on the menu as if it's complementary when everything costs, stay away from this poor excuse for a restaurant.

Hate leaving bad reviews, but this just did not live up to the positivity surrounding the place. Love the decor, ambiance is great, loud music (not mexican)..but good vibe. Unfortunatey it ended there. Server came by fairly quick with some chips and salsa. Salsa was bland and flavorless. Drinks came back quick and the server took our order. Pretty much the last time we seen him til the end. Food came real quick, like 10 minutes. No check in from our waiter on how it came out, drink refills, nothing. It wasnt til he came by to clear my empty plate (shrimp tacos, again lacked flavor) did we have to stop him from running to ask for 2 waters. They took longer to get back then the food order. Next was them clearing the table and him dropping off a check. Umm i guess no dessert tonight!

The straw breaking the camels back causing this review is now my wife is feeling sick to her stomache. Hopefully that too quick wasnt the reason!

First and last time…
