I was expecting more authentic Mexican tater. Tortillas were served warm kind off cold.
Enchiladas definitely not what I was expecting.
For a person who is not familiar with real Mexican food should be fine.

Mesa is such a great place to eat quality Mexican food. The choices are wide and varied and the quality just excellent. It is the happening place on the weekends in Camas. Friday was a 40 minute wait if you didn't have reservations with Open Table. We love going there and run into many of our friends out on the town.

So great! Tacos were amazing, and cheap considering they were so well prepared! Chips and salsa are to die for. We can never come without getting a couple orders of the chorizo Brussels as well!

Have been noticing their prices are increasing while their portion sizes are decreasing. That does not make us want to patronize them. We see other Camas restaurants that are equally as good and a better overall value.

This was my first time to your restaurant, and I had high hopes in bringing my daughter for Valentines dinner. It presents as a gourmet Southwest/Mexican food restaurant. While I had made a reservation two days prior, we were seated at the table right near the front door directly behind the hostess podium, where it was quite cold from the draft every time the door opened. I asked to be moved to a couple other open spots, but they told me they cannot accommodate my request. Unfortunately, I found the food to be marginal, and greatly overpriced. It took a very long time to be served, and repeatedly had to look for my hostess. Disappointing for the upscale presentation, And total bill.

This was by far the best Mexican food I’ve ever had! The chips and salsa were outstanding, the chicken in the fajitas were so tender and flavorful, The chocolate moose was amazing! The drink list is extensive, I had a strawberry basil margarita that was phenomenal. I can’t wait to go back and bring friends to my newfound favorite restaurant.

Impressive greeting when my table had been selected and set prior to my arrival. But, my 4PM reservation didn't say, nor does their website say, that this time had a limited menu of mostly finger food. Interesting selection so I tried a couple that seemed like they'd be different. But, still, had come based on on the menu listed on OpenTable and on Nuestra Mesa website. My ratings are positive, but did leave disappointed.

Our server was very kind and comped all issues. However, the issues were that food was terribly slow (it was just after a busy rush, but we had a reservation), overpriced (we live in Seattle area) for the quality and portions, and after waiting our food came out cold. Again the server was very kind and probably had too many tables but the food was awful. Time and a meal well wasted.

The food and service were excellent. It was homecoming at Camas HS, so it was kind of chaotic and noisy, but the kids were all well behaved and dressed to the nines.

We loved the food, it was varied and different from your usual south of the border restaurant. Our only problem was it seemed that our server was a bit overwhelmed, however it was a busy night, the food was great and we still had a wonderful time.

Terrible food and service. We've eaten at Nuestra Mesa about 5 times, starting about 5 years ago. We liked it at first, but it has gotten so bad now we'll never go back. The Cochinita Pibil seemed to be warmed over from the day before, including the pork and the potatoes. It came with 3 tiny tortillas, less than half what you would need -- cheap. My daughter ordered the grilled octopus, as that's her favorite food. It was rubbery and fishy -- almost inedible. She gave me a bit to try. I had to literally remove the piece from my mouth and put it on my plate of uneaten Cochinita Pibil. My wife ordered the Enchiladas Del Mar. She wanted to make sure there was not too much cream, and was assured there was hardly any. It came swimming in cream with hardly any fish, and tasted bad. The chips were stale. I ordered a glass of house red wine. I got a glass with a 3 oz pour. I asked if it was a half pour. The waiter checked in the back and said the pour is supposed to be 6 oz. I did not demand anything, but just mentioned in response that it was not 6 oz, more like 3 oz. He took the glass away -- I thought just to get me a bigger pour. Instead, the bartender (not the waiter) stormed back very agitated, and got in my face with "I don't understand what your asking me to do -- what's the problem?!!" Dumbfounded at this aggressive display, I said, "well, I didn't 'ask' for anything -- I simply told the waiter that the pour was 3 oz and he took my glass." She said, angrily, "it's 6 oz, I pour it myself, do you want to order another glass or what? I declined. Incidentally, even 6 oz is cheap. Most restaurants give you 8-9 oz. My companion ordered a house white wine. It came with ice. They took it back but instead of coming with chilled pour and no ice, they asked her 10 min later if it would be OK to just stain out the ice and give her back an ice-melt diluted glass of her old wine. I kid you not. Must avoid this restaurant at all cost.

Great food! Smaller menue but the options were tasteful. For an appetizer we ordered what I would call a Mexican fondue lol. (Cant remember the name)... Added the chorizo to it. It was very yum with their house made tortilla chips. I got the beef chimichanga and my husband ordered the serloin and roasted potatoes. My chimichanga was excelent. His steak and potatoes were cooked perfectly with lots of flavor. His only complaint was that the portion was very small for the large price tag. We would definitely go back for another date night however... He will choose something larger to fill his belly.

Food took a really long time to arrive at our table compared to a similar restaurant - but food was nicely seasoned and well prepared. Really good margaritas!! Wish chips and salsa were complimentary after already spending so much on the meal and drinks. Guess that’s not the norm in the PNW.

We had a table of 15 women for dinner. Not one critique. Oh one of the gals ordered the blueberry ginger margarita and found it to be too spicy. Food fabulous and loved the brussels sprouts. The staff was wonderful. Would definitely come back to Nuestra Mesa....
