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!

My second time there, and everything we had (including the gazpacho soup of the day and maybe half a dozen tapas, along with the strawberry sangria) was excellent, and out server was very attentive. It's not the cheapest option in the area but it is very good

The food is wonderful. Service to get our drinks was slow and the order was wrong. We ordered 2 flights of sangria with one of each flavor of their 8 sangria flavors. The waitress brought us 2 each out of 4 of their flavors. Simply taking the time to ask to clarify would be much more appreciated than taking it upon yourself to guess the wrong answer. It took too long to get our drinks in the first place. I didn't want to make a scene in front of my party to correct it and then have to wait that much longer to correct half of our order, so my fault for not correcting it then, but it should've been correct to begin with. The were also a lot of fruit flies flying around in our dining room, taking away from the experience.

The staff did a terrific job for us! I had arranged a surprise dinner for my wife's birthday. The staff was able to accommodate an additional couple on short notice. To maintain the surprise, I told the hostess, earlier in the day, that the other couples would arrive on time and should be seated. My wife and I would arrive a couple minutes late so she would be surprised when we reached the table. It turned out wonderfully. Our waiter was fantastic in taking care of us and making recommendations for the best selections from the large menu. Between the way the staff helped to maintain the surprise, the great food, and the warm atmosphere, I was very impressed. I encourage everyone to come enjoy this fine food in a beautiful setting.

Meson Sabika never disappoints! We had our wedding reception in the mansion 12 years ago (before pavilion!) and it's as fantastic now as it was then.
Our server went out of his way to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary and make our dinner enjoyable which he definitely accomplished.
Food was great. Sangria was refreshing. Highly recommend the sangria flight!

Fantastic Tapas...and the wine pairing was wonderful with the entree. Out of the dessert that we ordered, but the Tapas more than made up for the missed dessert. Definite a must go to place for incredible food, service has always been top notch.

Dessert we had the flan and almond pear cake wi caramel sauce. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed a nice day eating outside on the patio.

A 5 PM reservation, nice and quiet with customers filtering in slowly. Our server, Steve was appropriately observant and not over-bearing. Steve had great suggestions for some new tapas for us, we've been to Meson Many Times, over the years. We use to live in Naperville and walked there often. Of course, a must to be eaten there are many items but for sure have the Garlic Potatoes Salad and the Baked Eggplant!!!
The manager, not remembering his name, is a gem... He knows all the critical things to be on top of and he walks around asking customers how their meals were or what would make their dinning more pleasant!
As a joke, the only thing negative about Meson Sabika... It is addicting!

The table setting did not accommodate a tapas atmosphere. The table should have had room for the tapas in the middle of the table rather that trying to fit them somewhere, which was always inconvenient for someone in the group. This was very disappointing since it is a tapas restaurant.

Love the patio but the wasp/bees were rentless... Also it would be nice if they added a few big fans to keep the air circulating and possible keep the bees from landing.

Enjoyed brunch with family. Went earlier than our usual time to avoid the crowd. Food selection was generous and beautifully presented.

The manager on duty that Sunday morning did an excellent job checking on the various tables. I saw him visit each table, greet guests and ask if they were enjoying their brunch. Our server didn't stop by our table soon enough after we sat down, but the manager came over, took our drink order and said our server would be back with our drinks. Appreciate the nice service and attention. Go for Sunday brunch.
