Tapas / Small Plates
Located just west of downtown Naperville, Mesón Sabika has been serving the community since 1990. Built in 1847, the pristine four-acre estate and beautiful mansion welcome you before you reach the driveway. Whether you dine in one of the mansion’s eight dining rooms decorated in traditional Spanish décor, attend a wedding or corporate event in the pavilion, or sit out back on the patio, the cuisine of Spain and delicious drinks make for an unparalleled dining experience.

For a quiet, romantic dining experience we recommend a week night reservation.The small mansion rooms fill up on the weekends, making for a more lively dining experience.

Our dress code is "proper casual/casual dressy." Gentlemen, we respectfully ask that you cover up your arms (no tank tops). And ladies, we ask that the majority of your midriff is covered (no bandeaux’s). We ask that everyone remove their baseball hats when dining inside the mansion.


Thank you!

Exotic tapas food buffet, this is really the way to experience this place!! Sunday buffet comes with coffee, dessert, mimosa and a prime rib carving station, specialty omelettes, smoked salmon, paella, bacon wrapped dates, very garlicky potato salad, tuna bite sized wraps, cucumber slice with seasoned cream cheese on top with caviar, the list goes on... everything was delicious!

I didn't know what to expect when I made our reservations. But I was pleasantly surprised by all aspects of our experience. The food was great as was the service. The design/layout of the restaurant has a charm that I haven't found in this are before.

Great food, service and ambience. Being vegetarians we thought our options would be limited, however were pleasantly surprised by a wide range of options.
Strongly recommend to fellow vegetarians

We went out on a Saturday night, were seated promptly at our reservation time in a large upstairs room. Noise level was high until some big tables left. Food and service were excellent.

Food: not much selection of tapas, the food was mediocre and definitely not worth the price. Service: our waiter was nice but seemed to be spread out thin, he came to our table in the beginning and we waived him down at the end of our meal; never came in between to see if we needed anything. Ambiance: noisy & cold (literally & figuratively). Will not return for a Sunday brunch again. May give dinner a try.

We had our family Christmas Kick-off dinner here last Saturday. The restaurant looked beautiful as we drove up - covered in Christmas lights. We met in the bar for a drink and the bartender was gracious enough to re-make a drink to my taste.
Our table was ready right on time and the service was excellent. We had a large assortment of delicious dishes with pitchers of sangria.
We had a great time and can’t wait to go back!

We came to celebrate our 24th anniversary. Even though I purposely didn’t mention it (wanted to be low key), it looks like they remembered us from last year, and we were presented with two complimentary glasses of champagne. All I can say is “Wow!”! They must have kept us in their records from last year, and we were very impressed! They really scored major points with us, and it was sincerely appreciated! Thank you!

We come here a couple times a year and the food was just off this time. We ordered several items and the worst item was bacon wrapped dates, they were burned - all of them.

First, i received a voicemail msg asking me to confirm my reservation for 5 people that night & if it would be ok that we were seated upstairs. I returned this call & left a voicemail msg confirming our reservation but that we now had 6 people, and wanted to discuss the stair situation as I just had back surgery 5 months ago. No one called me back. A couple of my friends arrived at the restaurant before me & called me to say that we were in fact seated upstairs & they were told there was no room downstairs for us as there was a wedding reception downstairs. At that point I realized that I would somehow have to navigate the narrow winding stairs.

Second, After we were seated, I ordered the Vegetarian Paella with Bay Scallops. Nowhere on the menu did it say that artichokes were in this dish. When I received my Paella, I told a waiter (not our waiter) of my allergy to artichokes. They took away the paella and said they would give me another one within 15 minutes. They promptly replaced the Paella; however, I noticed that there were no scallops on it, which I promptly told our waiter. He asked what was being done about the mix up. I stated all i know is that the other waiter said they would take care of it, but I didn’t know what he meant by that. As I started eating it, I noticed that this Paella had chorizo in it and later learned that this Paella was actually for a gentlemen at the next table. At this point i just asked for my dish to be wrapped up as we had all now been at the restaurant for 2.5 hours. I went to the washroom and came back to learn that my waiter had packed up not only the chorizo paella but another one with scallops on it that the kitchen had made for me.

I understand the restaurant was extremely busy, but, didn’t you know that there was a wedding downstairs when I made my reservation, why did no one return my voicemail msg and how could one dish be so hard to get right?

The waitress was not attentive, and short. Perhaps she had a long day but this is not a fast food restaurant and I expected better from the waitress. I have been to Meson Sabika for a number of times and my friends had a wedding reception and all so it has been a special place to me but last night, the rating fell under average for sure and I surely felt I wasted a lot of money.

The ambiance is nice, lively and lots of people, and also the drinks are good. Some of the tapas are good, and others are pre-made and somewhat bland. Overall, we enjoy dining there.

We have been to restaurant regularly over the years. Food has been good, but no longer spectacular. Tables are too small for comfortably sharing, as intended. Service is rushed and intermittent. Noise level is excessive. There were 4 young men at table adjacent to ours that were hooting and hollering so loud that each table in our room were constantly looking at them. Our server not only didn't subdue them, he cajoled with them. We were there November 14th.

It is a fun dining experience. Small platted tapas that are well prepared, tasty that and fun to share. It amazes me that every dish is so well prepared. Service is good although sometimes it can get a bit noisy. The food is always consistently good... so I’m happy to recommend this place to friends,
