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!

This place never disappoints. Great staff, great service, incredible variety of food, and everything is cooked well. Reasonably priced.

Meson Sabika was okay. I was disappointed in the overall experience. I had told them ahead of time that it was our 35th anniversary and wanted a quieter, romantic setting. Instead, we were sandwiched between two large tables. It was quite noisy and anything but romantic. I was disappointed in the ambiance, for sure. I would not go back there for a special occasion or for a romantic dinner. Sometimes a restaurant will do something a little special for you if they know it is an important celebration. That was, definitely, not the case. I wish we had gone somewhere else for our anniversary.

Delicious! Best way to try a variety of tapas is to come for brunch. Leave room for dessert too.

My husband and I went for Valentine’s Day. That day they had a prix fixed menu that came with a hot and cold tapas, main entre and dessert. We enjoyed the flamenco dancer and Spanish guitar. Everything was delicious and our waitress was awesome. We love it there.

I did not like the set menu. I thought we could at least choose what we wanted from maybe a variation of options like Sullivan's did for new years. Definitely was not worth the money

We enjoyed a Delightful price fixe dinner on Valentine’s Day. The restaurant was very busy, but the staff was prepared and all of the courses were delicious.

Normally I LOVE Meson Sabika, we even had our rehearsal dinner here, but I would NEVER recommend this place for Valentine’s Day. They ONLY serve a fixed menu without any options and to be frank the food was just alright considering how much it cost. If I can make a reservation for any other day of the year and you’re able to accommodate others Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be a problem. “It’s the busiest day of the year” is what I was told, but not offering any sort of options has guaranteed we will never go back there on Valentine’s Day. What was served was NOT worth the cost. The restaurant claims that “calls were made” to those with reservations. Guess what? I didn’t get one, and neither did my coworker who also had a reservation. Overall this was such a disappointing meal on what’s supposed to be a nice night out.

We have enjoyed dining at Meson Sabika for years and were excited that they were offering a fixed menu for Valentine's Day. However, I did not enjoy it as much as a usual meal there, but there was a lot of food for the money. The appetizer was smoked duck and trout on toast points. It was okay, but not something I would order again. The next course was better, scallops with carrot puree or pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon with sweet potato puree. The main course was lobster tail and filet. My husband thought his lobster tail was underdone, and sent it back. The replacement was very good. The desserts were excellent, chocolate tart infused with orange liqueur or passion fruit cheesecake. The cheesecake was incredible. Everything was served for two for a price of $54.95. We enjoyed sharing a pitcher of red sangria. We sat near the door and felt a cold blast everytime someone opened the door. It was loud and busy, not very romantic. I realize they were making mass quantities of everything on the menu that night and will look forward to going back for lunch or dinner and ordering off of the menu.

The food was delicious and the server was perfect with his timing. We do prefer going when it is not a pre fixe menu so we can enjoy our favorites but all the food was delicious! Cant wait to go back

My friend and I went to Mason Sabika on a cold, snowy night for the bar bites special. We had a very relaxed, enjoyable evening in the bar sipping wine and enjoying $4 and $5 bar bites. This is such a great value! The bar bites we chose were a chicken, a smoked salmon and a tenderloin sandwich. All were delicious. We did need to order two of the tenderloin sandwiches but we split the salmon and chicken bar bites.
I have been to Meson Sabika countless times, mostly in the summer to enjoy the patio and have never been disappointed in the food, service or ambiance. Two thumbs up!

I’ve been to Meson many times. They have a diverse menu if you and your date like seafood otherwise it is limited. The place is a bit loud but very fun and worth dining at.

Went for Restaurant Week, date lunch. Loved the small plates and cuisine of Spain.
Loved dining in 1 of the 8 dining rooms of the mansion-cozy and romantic. Attentive service, Daniela was our server. We were not rushed and my husband loved the Tostada De Jamon Serrano and Medallions De Solomillo, as I did.. Loved the healthy baked apple with vanilla ice cream for dessert! This is one of my favorite restaurants for the ambiance and excellent service..
