The server was nice and accommodating. Me and my date eat slowly and wanted our privacy and the server gave us our privacy. He was able to recommend good food/appetizers and drinks!
We love Meso! We’ve come several times for dinner, and this was our first time for brunch.
We always experience friendly, attentive service. The brunch menu has American-style favorites as well as Mediterranean dishes. I loved fried duck and waffle! There are lots of other good choices, too.
Excellent food, good service. Abused by Pandemic instructions well.
Beet salad was excellent. The artichoke flatbread was delicious. Hummus was great. Pita bread tasted like flour. They give you one piece of bread with hummus and charge another $2.50 for another piece. More than one piece of bread should be included, plus it was not good and tasted like flour. They did a nice job of the ourdoor area...helps it is in a nice location.
Amazing experience to see the resurgence in crowds, laughter and fun, as springs starts and Covid recedes! Very well situated amidst all the hubbub and some great appetizers and cocktails to put you in the mood! We enjoyed being there, esp dining out in the warm weather.
Very good food.
However, hummus was way too salty; falafel balls slightly burnt on the outside, and undercooked on the inside.
Awesome place. Delicious food!
Service was pretty scattered.
Outdoor dining with heating was great! Highly recommend!!
First Indoor dinning experience of COVID. I chose a high top table, which I didn’t realize was near the bar so If I go back I’d prefer the dinning tables. It just depends on the vibe you are going for. My boyfriend and I are veggie and none of the dinner entrees really cater to that so we got the artichoke flatbread, beet salad, falafel bites and cauliflower steak. The portions were good and this was enough for the two of us. We also had drinks, the pomegranate mule and the garden margarita, both to our liking. Overall an enjoyable experience and we will be back!
We love Meso! Our favorite meal is the braised lamb shank, hummus, meatballs, rice pilaf, brussels sprouts and falafels!
Great food and drinks! Take advantage before everyone finds out and it gets too packed
Very good food. Had the lamb and it was tender and just came off the bone. Highly recommended.
Our server Margarita was fantastic! Food was delicious. And the overall ambiance was delightful. We will be back!
The menu online was misleading. They only had 5 entrees to choose from . Sides had to be ordered separately at an additional cost . The service was very good and the spacing of guests inside was very well done
Our server could have been a little more attentive but the food was delicious so I’ll definitely be back!
We had a table on the patio. It was covered and they had heaters on. Very pleasant and the staff was attentive and friendly. Food was delicious! Highly recommend!
All of the dishes are great! The outdoor seating area is a little bit cold, even with the heaters, so bring something warm.
It was wonderful to return to the restaurant and it exceeded our expectations. Protocols for COVID were nicely implemented and didn’t distract from the dining experience. We started with the Fattoush and the octopus, both were incredibly flavorful. For dinner, I had the Branzino and my husband had the steak - both were perfectly cooked and delicious. There was an offering for a wine flight to support underrepresented wine makers. I’m so glad I tried it, I’ve discovered two new favorite wines.
The timing and pace of the service was great and the server was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone else was very attentive as well. Overall, it really made our night to have such a wonderful experience.
We love Meso! Everything is super tasty. Stuff is very nice and friendly.
Great heaters for pleasant dining outside where it’s easy to feel safe. Nice ambiance and nice variety of food and drinks, too!
The food was good, not great. We had the kufta, spouts and tagliatelle (the best of the three).
Our server was friendly and efficient.
Food was great. There were a few items that I wasn’t crazy about but my husband was, so all about preference. Overall great dining experience.
We had a wonderful time, great food, excellent service. It felt good to leave home after a long time and get together with girls and enjoy ourselves on Saturday night at this restaurant!!
We started with a gin martini and the mezcal based cocktail, both were perfect. Then we had the grilled octopus (amazing) followed by Brussels sprouts, seasoned potatoes and the half chicken. Everything was really really good. The service by Marco was great. Only drawback was it was cold and while the heaters here look pretty, they do not put out as much heat as the not-so-pretty ones many restaurants are using. Still, a total recommend for one of our fave restaurants in San Jose.
Needs a few more heat lamps in the evenings.
Otherwise service and food was excellent!
Amazing! The food was delicious ...my favs are for sure the shrimps and any kebabs you can find on their menu. Food comes out quick and hot and so good.
The Branzino was just ok. Need to add some sides to call it a meal. Servers were awesome and ultra helpful.
My girlfriend and I had our Valentine’s Day dinner at Meso. Fantastic experience on all fronts- delicious food (we had the hummus, lamb flat bread, and brick chicken), great service, nice ambience (with heaters), and felt very safe (distanced tables, staff wore masks, etc). Definitely a bit pricey but portions are large, and we were very full and happy afterwards. We agreed that this was probably the best Mediterranean food we’d ever had, and we’ll definitely be back again.
Food was excellent, notably the meatballs and chicken. Service was quite slow, had to request silverware after dishes were brought to the table.
Great food, ambiance, and service!
Servers were very nice but it was horribly slow service. 30 minute wait for each drink order and there were only a few tables seated when we first got there. There for Valentine’s Day but zero decorations or ambiance.
We have always enjoyed this restaurant. We dined on the patio (COVID) and it was nicely spaced out, so it felt private despite being in the open. We ordered the Valentine's tasting menu and it was fabulous. I got the wine pairings and these were tasty as well. They complemented the courses nicely. This was our first dinner out since the start of the pandemic. When I am ready to venture out again, this place will be at the top of my list.
Even with the outdoor dining restrictions, everything was perfect. The food and drinks were absolutely delicious, as usual, and the service was impeccable. Will definitely refer all of my friends to eat here.
I was had booked a table fir my daughters 12th bday. The server forgot about the desert and had to remind him the food and ambiance was great..
Great food and service.
Great food and drinks. Very polite service. Beautiful decor.
They were all over the place. not enough servers, food was cold and was disappointing. It was great first time I went.
Wonderful outdoor dining experience with heaters. Food was fantastic!
This place has amazing food the staff is helpful and nice really a great experience
