    We usually eat outdoors & love their patio dining but we had a larger group this time, so ate indoor at large round table that was perfect for visiting & sharing lots of delicious small plates! Excellent craft cocktails too! Manager present & checking in on customer’s experience which is great, too! We’ll be back again soon!

    The restaurant is a great venue, I liked the open concept of the whole place. Very modern. I was disappointed with the food, In my opinion it seemed to be watered down versions of the originals, somewhat bland in some dishes. It was not what I was hoping for or expecting.

    The food at Meso is amazing. You can’t go wrong with anything you order (except harissa potato)! My only complaint is that the service was way too slow.

    The cauliflower and roasted potato small plates were SO good! We loved the trio of dips and the vegan gnocchi were very flavorful! The only bummer was the seabass still had all the bones even though we were told it was served whole but with the bones removed…bummer…otherwise fun spot!

    We were 4 ladies, who dined and had a delicious lunch, (as well as an enjoyable visit)! We ordered 2 appetizers (shared roasted brussel sprouts, cauliflower), 3 entrees (flatbread, chicken...), and each dish was freshly and most flavorfully prepared. Courteous server. Highly recommend.

    The food was beyond belief and the wait staff exceptional!! What I love about MESO is that the wait staff does not rush you to eat your food and leave. You can enjoy your meal, relax and in my case discuss business until the cows come home. The food is served hot with wonderful flavors to be enjoyed. It is my GO-TO restaurant on Santana Row for business and casual dining!! LOVE IT!!!

    A perfect pre-dinner spot before a movie at Santana Row. The food was delicious, ambience delightful and the service attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the falafel, trio of dips with fresh pita chips and bread, lamb flatbread and carrot and cucumber salad. Our NorCal weather made for a perfect evening on the patio and fun people watching. Can't wait to go back.

    Food should have been brought out as the same time, 1st persons got cold as they showed courtesy by waiting for others to get their food, then 1st and 2nd persons got cold as we politely waited for 3rd persons to finally arrive. Food itself had little to no flavor. I will not be visiting this one again.

    Meso is a nice place for any sized gathering. The space is large and the decor is tasteful, with beautiful blue hues, tile, and a water fountain. For a party of four smaller eaters we had a moderate meal with four small plates and a salad, though if you were to go with younger people you may want to get some large plates. There's a great choice of vegetarian or pescatarian options, and the pita and chips are all made in house.

    Food was excellent. Service started out good with our waitress helping us avoid a food allergy. But then served meals for some of us leaving us to wait for quite a while until the last person’s food came out. Everything was cold by the time we could all eat together. This was not enjoyable. I wouldn’t go back.

    Food was great, highly recommend the lamb shank and fish. Service was ok, nothing noticeable. Waiter checked in a couple times. 3 stars because I mentioned in my reservation it was my partners birthday, but not a single staff member said anything. I even asked the waiter to please put a candle on the dessert. It arrived with no candle and was just plopped down. If you are going with friends for a non-special event or a casual dinner, this place is fine. But for future celebrations, I won't come here. Plenty of other great options in the area with good food and service as well

    Carlos was wonderful, making sure our water was filled and bringing our dishes on time. We started with the trip of dips, halloumi cheese, Filafel balls, and spinach feta olive flatbread and then got the lamb shank and gnocchi The gnocchi was a bit spicy for me but perfect for our guests visiting from India.

    At hostess stand there was a line of waiting customers with reservations and the manager wouldn't seat any of them despite telling the hostess where to seat them when they came back. Service attention by wait staff was average to fair once we were seated. Food was delicious.

    This is the second time we have come to Meso. The first time everything was great but we couldn't try the meatballs. The manager took the time to contact me and made sure the next time we came (yesterday) we could enjoy them, and we did! The food and drinks were really tasty (I recommend the meatballs and the lobster lasagna, and the passion fruit mojito), and the service was excellent! It was a very pleasant experience and I really appreciated the fact that the manager, Justin, took great care of us. We will come back very soon.

    Food was yummy (we ordered the dip trio, harissa potatoes, and meatballs) and the passion fruit mojito. The drink and the first two items were really good. The meatballs never made it to the table. We asked our waitress when we were half way through the trio and the potatoes and she said it would be a few more minutes. We finished the other two items and no meatballs still. We decided to cancel them since we were satisfied with the amounts and it felt a bit out of pace. We wonder if the meatball order was never placed until we inquired the waitress about them. Oh well, we can come back next time just to try the meatballs :)
