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!

I attended the Red Cross fund raiser event the evening of July 16th.

We had 7pm reservations and weren’t seated until 7:45.
We gave the server our order quickly since the patio was busy (but not full).

After we had finished eating and had relaxed a while we got the attention of our server we said we might be interested in dessert and coffee. He reminded us we still had the lobster coming. We had forgotten it. So we groaned and figured it would be coming shortly.

We waited at least 30 minutes joking between us if they were having to fish for the lobster! After a while the server came back and asked us how we liked the lobster. I said it had not come, and now we did not want it and were past wanting coffee and dessert.

He brought the lobster anyway and said it was no charge.

I love Mesan and wanted to be part if the fund raiser.
The servers responsibility is to manage the food and bring it timely.

Definitely will come again but was really disappointed.

Always a wonderful experience. The food is so delicious and fun to experiment from so many choices.
The outdoor patio is so beautiful and it was the perfect weather evening to choose for our friend get-together. They never rushed us and all the money that night went to the Red Cross! The owner is SO generous! Thank you Meson Sabika for never disappointing! Can't wait to return!

The brunch was excellent. There was a great variety to choose from. It was a bit warm inside because the doors stayed open to the outside because there were additional brunch items out there as well

Lots of variety on the buffets. Enjoyed the cold tapas more than the warm ones. Although, the bacon wrapped dates and garlic tiger shrimp were stand outs! Appreciated the birthday candle recognition for our two birthdays, but wish it was coordinated with the desserts.

Was looking for a romantic dining experience for our anniversary and it was very cramped and loud. Food was pretty good overall, however, was not impressed with the paella.

Excellent service, as usual. The variety of food is great, we tried so many things. Two items that we'd previously had and loved, squid and croquettes, were not up to par. Our group of 8 was seated outside in the courtyard, as requested in our reservations. We thought it made the evening more enjoyable than had we sat inside.

The food was very good, but the noise level was awful. The wait staff had too almost
yell for us to hear her. The room was so crowded that the wait staff had a difficult time
getting around the tables. Yet the main dinning room was empty. Didn't understand why we were squeezed into such a small room.

The only bad thing was an incredibly loud crying baby. It lasted for an hour and a half. I felt like the manager should have offered a different table to the family (they had two other small children as well) in another room away from everyone or offer us something

Extended family dinner. Great food, outstanding service, friendly staff. They anticipated our needs and were there to help before being asked -- yet we were given sufficient space to enjoy our discussion. We've been going there for years and certainly will continue to do so.
