Mesita - Rockville Centre

$30 and under
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.

    Service was okay, but needs improvement in checking on the customer. I waited a bit to place my order and to get a second round of drink for my guest and I. However, overall the food was great. Drinks are okay, but nothing amazing about them. Noise level was a bit too loud, but we made it work.

    Service was awful from the hostess, to the bus boys, to the waitress. If there was a manger working, they were completely checked out. The food was good, but between constantly having to find our waitress to ask for our drink, water or napkins, it became overlooked. The prices have jumped dramatically here over the past few years as well. I get it, all goods have gone up, but sorry, 3 tacos shouldn’t cost $30.

    Went for a quick date night. Host was very nice. Tables were super small, the servers had a hard time fitting food on it. Price was right in spot, and got a good amount. I highly recommend the guac, amazing. The biggest downside was that it felt more like a club than it did an actual restaurant. Music was super loud, our waiter had to yell to hear us. And there was no real separation between bar and dining area. Just me being picky that’s all. Great experience overall, but wouldn’t recommend for special occasion under the circumstances of that night.

    Not sure if this establishment seeks to attract a much younger crowd but I went on a Friday night and they had a DJ blasting music which even my dance happy wife thought was too loud. If it was Latin or Mexican music I wouldn’t have minded. The majority of the diners this night seemed to be under 30 (I am in my mid 40s). As for the food and drinks, it’s what you would expect for a Tex Mex restaurant, overpriced for what you actually get. The food is fine and so are the drinks, it’s not anything to get excited about.

    We went there on July 3 and they wouldn't sit us in the main dining room even though we had 8 o'clock dinner reservations. We were made to sit in the bar area, hardly anybody was there and they wanted to close early, so the whole vibe was just off. Food was decent. Didn't love my chicken enchiladas, but guacamole and plantains were delicious. My guests enjoyed their nachos. Overall it was a very mediocre experience although I've heard wonderful things :-) May need to try it again on a regular night!

    Let’s just say if I wasn’t hungry I would not have kept my reservation. My first impression was horrible. The hostess was really rude. I walked in, she didn’t even look up. I said good evening she mumbled something but still did not look up. I waited for her to finish doing what she was doing but she never looked up. Then another young lady approached and I heard her whisper that i was not talking. I could have escalated this but I left it alone. Somebody needs to teach her that she needs to be attentive to arriving guests. She is the first person that the guests meet and she certainly created a bad impression. I am very thankful for our waitress, Laura who was quite delightful. Maybe they should hire her to train the hostess. The food was decent, not as flavorful as I had hoped seeing that it is Mexican food. But all in all we didn’t let our first impression sour our dinner.

    We were told 2 hrs before our reservation that we needed to come in eating cause they closed at 3:30. Which made no sense because they didn’t close and was just unprofessional that I was allowed to book that time anyway. It was very loud and dark inside it seems to be more of a drinking/ party place rather than restaurant. Could barely hear our server. And it wasn’t even a wide variety of things to choose from on the brunch menu. The food was good though. But it seemed like everyone who worked there didn’t wanna be spoken to and when we couldn’t find our server everyone else was just stand off ish.

    I went on a Friday with my lady. We had a great time. The DJ was playing the latin jams and current hits. The fish taco and guacamole and chips was great. We tried the jalapeño passion margaritas and they were phenomenal. 🤌🏽 My date said that’s her new favorite drink. I recommend for date or a group of friends.

    If you want to go to a club and have your ear drums blown out, not be able to have a conversation at your table, and not even be able to hear your waiter… this is the place for you!! If you want to enjoy your party/table, hear the specials, and eat good food for a fair price… go somewhere else! I don’t know what happened to this place but it went from one of my favorites to a big NO! I’d rather go to Taco Bell.

    I have nothing to say, I did not meet my expectations 100%, everything was very dark, and the waitresses could hear all the gossip they were making and at least at my table they had not attended us and to top it off no, they served us water, until the end a waiter came to fill the glass with water, I really do not recommend it.

    The food was very good but it wasn't great by any means, and it certainly wasn't "authentic" Mexican food. While the decor was nice, and the seating comfortable, the talking and background music noise level was off the charts loud - which was only made worse when the DJ started playing (at 9:00). The service was great in that the waitress was attentive and courteous. Two orders were brought out wrong (turns out the waitress couldn't hear us when we ordered originally because of the noise level...) but the correct order was brought out promptly. This was a Saturday between 8:15 and 10:00 p.m., maybe at other times it's more tolerable.

    Very good food and great staff! However, was a bit pricey at over $100 for 2 entrees and 2 drinks. The music was also so loud I had trouble hearing my wife across our 2 person table. I’m all for a good ambiance but could have been taken down a few notches.

    I enjoyed my dinner at Mesita. I went on a busy SaturDay night, but the service was still great. The waitress was attentive to us and came back a couple of times to make sure everything was good, (just right…not too much or too little). The food was also great. The drinks left a lot to be desired. My only issue with Mesita would have to be the drinks.

    Our memory of this place was not our experience yesterday. The service was inattentive. Although there were only a few guests the service was slow including drinks. we like to enjoy our appetizer for awhile before having dinner brought out. But everything came at once yesterday. and the rice and beans was cold and almost just reheated. The tacos and enchiladas were very tasty. And we didn’t have any chips and salsa. Perhaps this is no longer provided. Overall for seeing this place so crowded at times the experience was a let down.
