A visit to Meso is more than just a delicious meal, it’s a chance to come together and connect.
All the dishes were wonderful. Very delicious and great presentation. Our server was very kind and professional. I will go back soon.
Service really good, like appetizers. But the lamb entree was little be dry, look forward to try different next time.
Admittedly, I expect a higher level of service and food quality of any establishment at The Row. We ordered crispy lamb hummus, chicken schwarma pita, falafel bites, and shakshuka. The hummus was tasty, but the shakahuka was bland. Both items required more than one serving of pita which you can order for an additional price point (depending on which type pita you want to purchase). The chicken pita was delicious- a nice blend of veggies and sauce to accompany the chicken. Albeit, it wasn’t loaded w chicken but enough of it to fill most of the pita. Do not order the falafel bites. The falafel bites were dry and boring - the cucumber dill and harissa aioli couldn’t save it either. We’re planning to go back because we enjoyed the hummus and we really want to like this place.
The service was sub-par *at our table.* I’m guessing our server was new at serving or new to the menu. She didn’t even properly describe the shakshuka. Also, the waiter in the next section was far more knowledgeable at explaining the menu items. If you want to sell food, know your menu. I dunno. Just an idea. Most patrons will order extra food simply because it sounds good, but if you’re not selling it I won’t buy it. After all, we’re there to eat.
Nice place And good food, service.
Amazing food. Great service. We’ll be back!
Great experience! Good food and awesome service. The server was pleasant and friendly and helped us greatly with the menu , dishes and ordering. Good to see GF options too!

The space is very nice with nice design elements. The service was reasonably good and attentive. The food was hit and miss with excessive salt in a couple of the dishes.
Great place to come for a special occasion or date.. dim lit, great decor, service and food. Music is loud and sound generally loud
We have been here about 10 times since they opened and very good every time
Thank you for the 5 Star review and for being such a great supporter of our restaurant! We are now offering a brunch menu on the weekend! We hope to see you again soon. Sienna Forde Assistant General Manager
Great location in Santana Row, very nice for a friends night out or a date night. Delicious options, great ambiance. They have a pretty big patio with lots of heat lamps.
Very limited menu and not great food. Will not rush back.
Overall winderful experience. Food was great, and our Server was fantastic and made it a really fun evening.
An epicurean delight! The small plates and appetizers were a visual and gastronomic treat. We ordered prawns, spicy beets, Brussel sprouts, Halloumi, falafel bites..... a wide array of starters. All delicious! For the main course we had La Plancha brazino, Mediterranean Cobb Salad, eggplant ratatouille. Each dish flavorful and unique. The beverage accompaniment: Mediterranean red wine. A wonderful dining experience !
We had a wonderful evening at Meso. Everything was perfect!!
Good experience. Lots of interesting dishes and cocktails.
Beautiful, cozy and modern place. Good cocktails and desserts. The food wasn't that good. Overpriced.
valentine's day dinner
Loved the ambiance. All the servers and receptionists are very polite and prompt. I would definitely like to go there again.
Valentine’s Day, it was really loud in there. Food was good but I wish it was less loud.
Ironically, I chose Meso because it was the only table for 2 at 7:00pm (when I searched at 5:00pm) within a reasonable distance from home on a Friday night that was also Valentines Day. Talk about happy accidents! The food was divine! Our server gave a few outstanding recommendations that we acted on. Absolutely no regrets.
We went for Valentine’s dinner. It was our first time at this restaurant and we asked our waitress Brianna (Brie) for recommendations. We ordered pretty much everything she recommended and it was delish. Would definitely come back. Actually we already made reservations for next week. She truly made the experience great and was very attentive.
Excellent food and ambience. New favorite spot at Santana Row!
Fresh food, flavorful dishes but too oily. Entrees were expensive. Turkish coffee dessert was awesome.
Order to share.
Bold and exciting Med flavors--brussel sprout side was surprisingly delicious with feta spread. Spicy lamb flatbread was a nice contrast to the spicy beet appetizer and branzino. Great use of zatar and harissa spices. Very knowledgeable server was a plus in navigating the menu. A nice addition to Santana Row's otherwise rather tired and lackluster restaurant offerings.
The food, decor, and cocktails are great. The service is bad. I’ve been twice, and both times there was an issue with tickets in the kitchen and one entree didn’t come until 30 minutes after all other entrees were served.
Food was good, service was attentive, wine pour was lousy for what you paid for
I am reducing my overall rating from four stars to three. This was due primarily to a massive increase, of about 100%, on their sea bass plate. It used to be a 2-pound fish which included saffron rice pilaf for about $41. They cut the size of the fish in 1/2 to 1 pound and now charged $36 for that, and this does not include the rice pilaf.
In addition, they massively overcharged me for two drinks that I had, and I had to send my bill back twice to get it corrected.
While the food is still delicious, the reduction of the size of the fish, the pricing of the fish, and a hassle with my bill, reduce my excitement about this restaurant greatly.
We ordered the Lamb shank, it’s ok if it was served with mash and veggie be better. The sausage pasta was ok not anything to talk about. The falafels bite were really good and the lamb flat bread was good as well. Octopus grill was very good but the portion was very tiny. Over all I would rate it as an ok place certainly not bad. Server was excellent. And the staffs are friendly.
The food is really good!!! The fried brussel sprouts is divine, Branzino fish and roasted chicken is a must try! Love the vibes!
Great place with lots of potential. Service needs to be better. 2 of our orders were forgotten or severely delayed.
Food was good but nothing exceptional. Some of the flavour combinations are intriguing and work well, but some are just strange. Desert menu is also kind of small.
We enjoyed our dinner at Meso. Great food and ambience!
Service could’ve been better but food was great
Fabulous! Will be back. Kendra the bartender is a keeper
The food is quite good. Two dinners and a glass of whine for $106 after tax and tip? No.
