About Meson Sabika

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!

Meson Sabika is a great place to bring a few people so you can order many small plates and savor all the flavors. We had 4 appetizers and one seafood-packed paella for 4 people and it was enough food. I am probably (undoubtedly) a piglet, because I would have been happy to try more bites, but calmer heads prevailed. We had bacon-wrapped dates, mini lamb chops, stuffed mushrooms, and crab avocado toast, and all were outstanding. The paella had enough seafood for each of us have a large shrimp, clam, mussel, and several pieces of fish. Also very delicious. We had a great rioja, too, and the cost was less than $75/couple. GO HERE!

First time here. The waiter seemed impatient. Being our first time we had a lot of questions. Felt crammed in. Too many tables. No room to move. Over priced small portions. Not impressed. Will not return.

This is an interesting place. It is like a mansion turned into a restaurant. Due to this the noise level can be high if you have a group that is loud. Also you don’t have as many servers around to attend to you. This would be a better place to go if you have time on your hands.

We decided to go to Meson Sabika for our anniversary and we loved it! The service was great, our waitress was very friendly and gave some great tips and the tapas plates came out in groups which was much preferred over getting them all at once. The food itself was delicious and definitely authentic Spanish. As it was our anniversary, our waitress even waived the dessert from our bill which was very nice. Overall the prices were very reasonable for the portions. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

I have been to Meson several times and find that it is very consistent in quality and flavor, with some diversity in the menu options. I have had most of the items on the menu and find that there has not been a single item I haven't liked. Everything is so good and it's fun for anyone who likes good food, you get a little taste of a lot of things especially when you go with a bigger group!

We had an okay dinner this time. We were, thankfully, taken early as we were all quite hungry. One of us had the tilapia marinada, atop spinach and artichoke hearts with diced tomatoes beside it, and served with a lemony sauce. It is always reliably good. Another had chicken tenders which were fine. The third had beef tenderloin, 2 small pieces, with a tiny (and cold) ice cream scoop of mashed potatoes. The beef, medium rare as requested, was tender and tasteful which I was glad of. The teeny amount of mashed potatoes could and should be doubled~ and served hot. The server was quick to respond to the temperature issue, and the manager came by to apologize and to whisk out the warmer ones. I do find myself wishing that the restaurant rethink their bread: it needs to be better, with a finer flavor and a better crust.
