Mesita - Rockville Centre

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.

I found my Chicken Tortilla soup to be served warm, not steaming hot. Similarly, my three enchiladas w mole poblano were served even less warm, was sent back, and received moderately hot... all despite asking our kind server for streaming hot.
Also, I noted on reservation in text box that we were celebrating my Wife's birthday. It was not recognized .
Attention to detail matters. Thank you/.

Mesita was everything and more than what I imagined. The ambience was lovely, the servers/staff were very friendly, and the food was absolutely excellent. I went for brunch and there were so many options it took my party forever to decide.. we tried the guacamole table side (WHICH THEY MAKE IN FRONT OF YOU!!!), the steak and chicken fajita, and the omelette with like all the toppings. Everything was so delicious and so filling that ended up being my only meal for the day.. so satisfying and wonderful. Would recommend for brunch!

The food was good, atmosphere was fun!
However, our server kept annoying us and asking us if we were ready to order (after we had already ordered drinks). She asked us to order appetizers 5 minutes after we sat down and had just been given a menu and ordered cocktails, came back 3 minutes later and asked if we were ready yet. We said we were still looking and she then told us we had a time limit on the table (we had now been sitting down for maybe 15-20 minutes total). Very odd and off putting. Definitely bothered all of us, but would go back and just hope for a different server.

Brunch was good but the host was very unfriendly and it was way too dark inside, you could barely read the menu. Also they charge way way too much for coffee and tea- 5 bucks each!!!

Ate here Sunday night with my family (husband and two young kids 5&7). Our waiter was excellent (I’m so bad with names I wish I knew his name he deserves the credit!). My kids loved the (semi) loud music and were bopping to the songs. Usually this place is packed, but it wasn’t (assuming beginning of fall, football, etc) which was actually nice. Food came out fast. Everything was delicious including my margaritas. We had a lovely meal and on the way out the gentleman holding the door (super nice by the way) gave us a $50 GC to their partner restaurant next door which we will definitely be back to try! We got in the car with smiles… it was such a pleasant dining experience and a nice way to end a long weekend!

Food & hospitality & music were definitely great! We celebrated a friends birthday and ordered the appetizer sampler and chicken fajitas entree to share among the four of us. We tried a few different mojitos but the Passion fruit mojitos were the best ! Definitely a great night out !

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.

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
