    We dined at Mesob prior to a concert at the Uptown Theater. It was a convenient walk across the street and nice that we were able to make reservations in advance so we didn't have to worry about time. The restaurant was not particularly busy while we were there and the service was excellent. There was a wide variety of choices on the menu and everyone in our party of eight got something different and loved it!

    The restaurant was not open even though I was able to make reservation through open table. received confirmation text messages via open table. The poor ratings are based on the fact that the restaurant did not communicate with open table so that reservations could not be accepted. I am so very glad that my intuition caused me to contact the restaurant at 3:30pm on the date of the reservation and when there was not an answer I began to put two and two together, went to their website which then had a line that said "Black Friday Hours" Closed. This could have been a very bad experience as family was traveling in.

    Very nice experience. Had the Oxtail which was excellent. Service is good but slow. Make sure you allow enough time.

    They weren’t busy but the service was awful. We waited over an hour after we got seated to get out drinks. We are very understanding if it’s busy, people are rushing around doing their best but this was not the case it was like they didn’t want to take your order. The table next to use almost left. There were 5 workers just standing around not really doing anything. It wasn’t even busy, it was wild.

    When we got there, they couldn’t find our reservation. The restaurant was full and it was raining outside, so it made it very difficult and saddening. When we finally got sat, the wait staff was very slow and not tentative. Sometimes the wait staff was even downright rude. This was a ruined occasion. The food was over priced and shells were not fully cleaned out of the seafood dishes making it hard to eat. Food that could be eaten was good though and the overall taste was good. Atmosphere was open and inviting. Noise levels were nice and made having conversations easy. I would say this is a hit and a miss place. I will be giving it another go.

    The food was great at a decent price. The service was less than satisfying we waiting over 30 mins to get water. The waitress wasn't very pleasant. We waited another 30 for the bill. We ended up being the last people in the building. I'm pretty sure they were closed by the time we were able to leave. We were also still charged the extras 20% gratuity because we had a reservation for 10 event though we were only a party of 5.

    The food at Mesob Restaurant & Rum Bar was very good. I had the Cajun Seafood Pasta and my husband had the Seafood Paella. They were both very good. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We will be going back and recommend it for a nice dinner out.
