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!

If you want a taste of Spain in the form of Tapas, this is the place for you. Everyone that works there is so friendly and the food is excellent. Though the plates are small, feeds mainly two people and pricey $10/plate, the food is delicious. The atmosphere is nice, a little loud at times, but in the summer, they do have outside seating and fun to see the weddings that happen there as well. If you want a place for a large group and you don't mind getting a lot of small plates, this is the place for you. The bacon wrapped dates are the best as is the pork. The sangria's are the best we have ever had, even in the winter time. Explore a little and enjoy the Tapas, you would think you were in Spain, if for a brief moment.

Meson Sabika is a wonderful restaurant! The whole dining experience is great from the time you are warmly greeted as you enter the restaurant, to your dining, to the time you leave and a warm departure greeting as well. The Tapas food here is wonderful, and you can't go wrong with any of the dishes to share. The garlic potato salad is one of their signature staple dishes, and it is great to eat every time dining at this restaurant. The "Delicia" dessert which is a chocolate terrain with a raspberry sauce and walnuts has also been a staple dessert that this restaurant has had for many years...I highly recommend this one - either for sharing or to have as your own! The wait staff here are always squared away, and they provide excellent service. If you have never tried Meson Sabika...you should definitely give it a shot because you will surely not be disappointed! It may become your new favorite restaurant for sure! Thank you Meson Sabika for being such a great restaurant!

Food was great but the noise level was a fail. We were sat next to a very loud large group of middle 30’s women. Worse, was 20 minutes later when a couple with their infant were sat to the other side. My wife and I could hardly hear each other. We rarely get a date night away from the noise in our life. Perhaps we text each other next time.

We have been to Meson Sabika many times and always love it. Sharing the tapas is so much better than ordering just one entree. I always love flan, the flavor of the day was orange...I wasn't sure about it, but it was fantastic...just a hint of orange that blended beautifully with the flan and caramel. We were seated by a window and my only negative was that the temperature in the room was a bit chilly for me.

We had the 5 course set menu and we waited a long time in between each course. Our table beside us came in later than us and they were served ahead of us. The food was good, we just had to wait a long time for each course.

This is not a good restaurant. The idea of it being in an old mansion is a good one until you realize that it’s your grandmother’s old, outdated and decidedly unappealing house - lace curtains and all.
But I could get over that if the food were good - it wasn’t. The tapas were overpriced for what it was. Food preparation was mistimed. We had a dead period of 35 minutes between our dishes - literally we sat for 35 minutes with nothing on our table. The paella was good but the the gigantic chunks of vegetables was wrong for the dish.

I have a monthly dinner date with my 5 cousins and we like to try different cuisines and restaurants. It was my turn to pick the restaurant this month. I’ve been to Meson Sabika numerous times and it did not disappoint. Everyone loved their food and sangria and felt the price point was terrific. Might make a return trip in the summer when the weather is warmer and we can utilize the patio.

We especially love the Valentines meal where the chef brings his favorites and we do not have to decide. This year was especially delicious and loved the stuffed pepper. One of the few restaurants where we really pay attention to the flavors and mixture of ingredients. Our favorite place for special occasions. Thanks!

The food was excellent. Our order was slightly delayed and the manager comped a couple drinks for the “inconvenience” on his own. We had not complained, he was just that attentive. Very impressive. This is our Valentines Day place. We have gone here the past three years and will continue to come here. Wonderful atmosphere too. Unique.

The waiter and food were amazing!! The ambiance is very cute and cozy feeling, great lighting but, there was a plate hung for decoration in the Granada room that was WAY OFF CENTER. It was so oddly hung, and I couldn’t look at anything else. Someone needs to grab a tape measure and try again.

I love this place but it was a little to loud for me. We couldn't hear each other talk due to all the loud laughter in the room we were in. The acoustics in the upstairs rooms sucks. When I go the next time I will not go upstairs.
