The Irish waiter was awful. Screwed up our order several times. The food was almost cold and tasted bland. I had a Carne Asada burrito. The meat was fatty and not that good. I only could eat 1/3 and left the rest. Again the waiter was really lame. Good luck!!!

We have eaten here before and loved it. This experience wasn't quite as good. The chips were hard, almost stale and I ordered something with seafood, which was shrimp that night. I should have asked ahead of time. The dish was great, but the shrimp kinda were overpowering! I would recommend Mesa, but watch put for the seafood if you don't care for shrimp!

Father’s Day meant a busy street, with fast driving and sometimes noisy/stinky cars… maybe merchants should ask the city to close streets to through traffic at least partially or on weekends, etc. cars sometimes drive way too fast for a downtown road, 35 mph or greater is too fast, and distracting for outside diners… not to mention inconsiderate of other people, not something a restaurant can control without a complaint to the city or police?

Fairly good food but seemed like it had sit for some time as rice was dry and everything was lukewarm. Chicken poblano chowder is really good but base is pretty much 2 cups of heavy cream. Pita Style chips are really nice but the bottom layer was just saturated in oil. Service was slow. Overall a pretty good but room for improvement.

We usually enjoy Nuestra Mesa. Our most recent meal was an exception. The chicken enchiladas were dry and tasteless. Drinks, as always, we’re excellent.

Service was excellent. My order was wrong, but they quickly apologized and made up for it. The owner gave us a discount and honored a free chips/salsa from a past deal.

This is a totally informal restaurant that serves Mexican style food which is largely very good. Tacos (soft) are excellent, as are guac and queso fundido.. Some items, chiles rellenos, say, are les so. Service is friendly and efficient. Margaritas are good. Beer selection is okay.

We were excited to celebrate my birthday with my family at Nuestra Mesa. We showed up 5 minutes before our reservation and checked in with the host, only to find out they gave away our table. No call or notification ahead of time.

They only have so many tables that can hold 5 and when we arrived they said our table was no longer available because 'something came up' and "well it's around 7pm and it's busy". Yes, that's why I made a reservation expecting it to be upheld. Basically they filled it and didn't actually reserve anything.

Asking how long it would be I was met with an I don't know. She said she could put me on the waiting list and I asked how long that would be and she said "I don't know". Okay how many are on the list, "just you now". They said they would call me when a table opened up. We waited outside and 15 min later I went back to check on the progress. They couldn't really give any answer and honestly it looked like they weren't trying to make an effort at all. It was like we had just walked up and I had never made a reservation.

Look I understand we're in a pandemic, things are busy, and things happen. But the lack of actions and options after the fact were very poor. I'm really disappointed as I know the food is delicious.

After this we just decided to go somewhere else down the street. I thought a reservation meant something. It really soured my birthday night and I won't be back for some time

Terrible, pushy server (Maddie) and the food was equally low quality. I came here because of the stellar reviews, but I can only assume after this visit that those people must not know actual Latin food. The food was so over seasoned/overcooked we could not even finish the extremely small portion of $23 chicken fajitas. Big red flag when the entire staff of an “authentic” restaurant is all white young people. The entire experience was deplorable. Not to mention we very clearly heard profanity from the staff throughout our brief stay. I implore anyone seeking a good meal with good service to go elsewhere with your money.

I made reservations on Open Table for Easter and I’m not sure if it’s the restaurant’s fault or Open Table website but after confirming Reservations on this site we drove there and found it was closed. Not good if it’s not indicated on the Open Table website. We did scramble to find another restaurant that would take last minute reservations. Nw t time I will not trust this site with up to date restaurant information.

What a nice treat to find this tasty gem! The chef and owners of Nuestra Mesa have truly elevated the delicious cuisine of Mexico, presenting each dish in a manner respectful of authentic flavors, yet in a visual display that stood as it's own pleasure, complimenting all the other senses engaged during our dining experience. Our server, Jose Andres, was spectacular and deserving of mention...we will certainly be returning to again savor the delightful culinary journey through Mexico that we had the pleasure of experiencing this evening!

Our dinner was very good. Chicken enchiladas and 2 side tacos- shrimp and carne asada. Their homemade salsas were just awesome. Really enjoyed great service from our server, Maddie. She helped make it a wonderful experience to actually dine in for a change- in crazy 2020. We would certainly recommend Nuestra Mesa.

The staff was friendly. The drinks were ok, and the food was good , I got 4 different tacos & the meat on 2/4 was not very warm- if all the meat would have been warm it would have been great!

It was exactly what we needed on a rainy Sunday, brunch was absolutely amazing, chilaquiles and the pork Benedict and sopapilas hit the spot, will definitely continue to dine at Mesa, our waitress was very nice and made it enjoyable with small talk, she even made me a beermosa that wasn't on the brunch menu but had no problem making me one. Highly recommend.

This was one of my worst dining experiences. It took 35 minutes to get our drinks served, the chips were cold, guacamole was awful. I did not leave a tip. My brother's streak was tough and over-salted. My chille relleno had practically no batter on it. I would not eat at Nuestra Mesa again and I am recommending my friends avoid it at all costs.
