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
Good food, great choices, nice drinks, very quiet.
We came here for a birthday dinner for my friend. The food was amazing however the waiter and service was very slow. At the end of dinner we asked for a dessert for our friend to celebrate her birthday. He brought the desert out with no candle. It was a simple request. It took him 5 to 10 more minutes to go find a candle. Just a long delay for such a simple request. I ruined the night. Don’t come here if you have a birthday celebration. Just for dinner is OK. The food is really good
I've been here earlier and have enjoyed the food a lot. Service needs to be a little bit faster, but the food makes up for it!
It was a great experience from ambiance to the food. The server was great as she made the extra effort in ensuring we had the right pairing of wine and food with complimentary tasting 🍷..
The restaurant is CoVID ✅
Excellent location, food and ambience. I went there for my birthday celebration and during covid they had taken all the required precuations specially with the outdoor seating. It was very well spaced out so we were very comfortable .
Amazing food, attentive staff !
This is now the second time we've come here and it's the service that is awful. First time they forgot several things we ordered and second time it's took 1.5 hours for the food to arrive and that is after we asked what was taking so long and gave us a $7 discount. It's a sham cause the food is good but for the cost of the food and service it's honestly not worth it at all.
The outdoor dinning area was great!
Our server was OK.
The food just wasn't that good.
Love the branzino!
Wonderful place, excellent, professional services by the staff. Highly recommended!!
Great and nice
Mesa did an excellent job of implementing COVID risk-reduction practices - very spaced tables, professional staff all wearing masks, etc. We felt very safe going to dinner there.
Very special place. Food is some of the most delicious I’ve had in a long time. We had the falafel balls, chicken and shrimp skewers, artichoke flatbread and cheese and honey appetizer. Everything was amazing. I can’t wait to go back!
We had a great meal at Meso Modern. The staff were attentive & super friendly and the food was really yummy. We will definitely return!
Food is always great - so fresh and flavorful. Brussel Sprouts and Chicken are a must.
Had a reservation and was seated right away but no one ever took our entree order. Sat there for 1.5 hours with one drink and one appetizer. Had to leave and order door Dash for dinner. We spoke to the manager and he apologized and took our drinks off the bill.
Service started a little slow, not enough servers I think. The hummus, octopus, salad and falafel, as well as the cocktails, were all perfect. Outdoor area was nice. As it got a little chilly, the heaters in between tables were just right. Not too hot, not too cold. Really a great, not to be missed, dining option in San Jose.
Amazing atmosphere/vibe! Best outdoor heaters I've experienced during Covid. Tons of fun cocktails, great wine pours, and shareables/family style was incredible. TRY this place!!
First outdoor dining experience in 6 months!
They did a great job with setting up the tables for social distancing. All waitstaff wore masks.
Lovely atmosphere near the fountain.
Food was really good. A bit pricey. Overall great experience and will definitely go back.
Fish dish was excellent according to my friend who ordered it.
