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!

    We went to celebrate our daughters birthday. Food was tasty, the room we sat in was cold. It was nice they left a note on the table. Although we didn’t take a picture, they also brought a desert and sang happy birthday.

    I'm a bit disappointed. The food was not nearly as good as it usually is. It was a very busy night, but still, quality is important. Had the pincho de pollo, which is typically my favorite, but the cumin sauce was bland. The patatas aioli had too much garlic, Yes, I know it's supposed to have a TON of garlic, but this batch was too "hot" tasting. Maybe it was just an off night. However, the ambience is still lovely, and the service was good. I will be back and hope for a better night.

    Meson Sabika was amazing! My husband and I chose this restaurant, recommended by a co-worker, for date night. We could not have picked a better restaurant. The ambiance was romantic, the food was top notch and the pricing was very reasonable. Highly recommend to anyone on the fence. Such a wonderful experience.

    The food is excellent. The tapas is innovative, and the ingredients are fresh. However, there is that faint standoffish behavior which kind of spoils the charm. When we walked in and informed the hostess that we have a reservation, we were checked in but had to wait for a table for 15 minutes, whereas people (no prizes for guessing their melanin content) who came in later were seated earlier. Finally the table which we were shown to had a literal hole in the center -- not the type where you mount a beach umbrella, but a literal broken table. I had to ask for bread on the table, whereas every other table was getting it without asking. The only time the server was nice and chatty was when they got the bill, and it was transparent that it was with the expectation of a generous tip. I returned to Meson Sabika after 5 years, but I might have to give them another 5 years to improve their behavior.

    Beware that the "outdoor heated" seating is only about 57 degrees (at least according to the lone floor heater trying to heat 2000+ square feet of uninsulated tent). Everyone who was seated in this area asked to move. There was little attempt to actually heat the outdoor area. I understand that February in Illinois gets cold but most people think "heated" means you don't need to keep your hat and gloves on at the table.

    We enjoyed the Valentine dinner special and were really impressed. Our waiter, Sergio did a fabulous job in taking care of us. There were three courses and each one was beautifully prepared and tasted wonderful. We really enjoyed sitting "outside" in the heated tent. All in all, it was just a great meal and we were happy we chose to eat here for the holiday.

    Unique and different feel for dining. Friendly and welcoming staff. Food was good with a large variety of things to try. Food came out quickly and the server was excellent. The seating is fairly close together and is not really geared toward a quiet meal for a couple. Definitely something I would do again. Price would be in the $100-200 range for a couple, and could be higher depending on if you are going to drink alcohol. Nice experience overall.

    We love going to Meson Sabika. The restaurant gives us the flavors of Spain that we love so much. It's a bit pricey, but the food, service and atmosphere is special and reminds us of our time in Madrid. We love going to Meson Sabika.
