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!

Had such a special night with family. Fun for everyone to choose dishes and discuss what we all liked best. Even three teenagers got into it and became foodies for the night. Was a little loud but the whole room felt like a party and all sang Happy Birthday to someone at another table.

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 have been going to Meson Sabika for 20 years and it never disappoints. My wife loves their homemade sangria. Bacon wrapped dates are great as a dessert. New menu items appear periodically and are always fun to try.

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.

I love all the wonderful dishes at this restaurant. Everything is so tasty. I love coming back in trying new things each time and it makes a wonderful Celebration Place. I think it's just wonderful that they give Naperville teachers a break on their bill too. We plan on continuing to come to this beautiful restaurant as long as we can.

We visit twice a year. We moved away a number of years ago, but my wife has kept her doctor here. This is the restaurant we go to each time. Good variety, casual atmosphere and service is always excellent. We usually eat tapas, sangria and try dessert if not too full. They have an excellent wine list as well as a full bar. We never feel rushed, but the staff is very attentive to your needs.

A varied menu with many tapas both hot and cold. Also several lunch items and desserts. Had exceptional service. Noticed everything and were quick to pour water and take away dirty dishes. Tender, marinated beef in many dishes and excellent salmon. Veggies, cheese and olives also very good. Abundant bread basket. Highly recommend!

My parents and I patroned here, and opinions are mixed. Per our server's recommendation we started with a flight of cold tapas. The Salmon Curado con Queso was richly complex in taste and texture, and I enjoyed the salmon and cheese. The Patatas con Aioli was indeed a delicious, garlic-heavy, savory salad, and quite enjoyable. Tostada con Centollo was mild, smooth, and decadently delicious. The Alcachofas Marinadas were dredged in vinaigrette and we had to drain it, but otherwise fine. Overall the cold tapas plates were quite enjoyable, but unfortunately our hot tapas plates were where opinions sharply differed. The Calamares a la Plancha wasn't fresh, the texture rubbery and strongly odorous; unanimously unappealing. The Datiles con Tocino was a good juxtaposition of sweet, salty, soft, chewy, crunchy, and strongly flavored. We enjoyed that plate. The Queso de Cabra's basil tomato sauce was smooth, and the strong goat cheese went well with the bread. Another plate we enjoyed. The Berenjena con Setas were a soggy, mushy disappointment, with an unpleasant fetid taste, one we unanimously did not enjoy. The Champinones Rellenos were watery and rubbery. The Bogavante al Horno was flavorful (and thankfully fresh), and it felt nice biting into a seasoned crispy potato slice to help offset all of the very strongly-flavored hot tapas. We drive by this place all the time so we know it's a beautiful venue for events or outdoor dining when the weather is nice. It was a weeknight evening, so it wasn't very packed, but there was a large private event occurring when we dined so that might've skewed the restaurant's normal capacity. Service was notably slower than other restaurants, but the point of tapas is to congregate with friends/family and socialize, so it wasn't -really- that big of a deal. Our dining time exceeded 2 hours. We would not return, nor could I recommend this just for the food alone. The interior is very charming, though!

The old home turned into a restaurant was beautiful, with each room set as a separate dining space. The dining area we were seated in was rather loud. Loud to the point conversation at the table was a bit difficult. Our server was diffult to hear and understand. With that all said, the food was absolutely amazing.
