    We enjoyed the octopus and short ribs. I was expecting the short ribs to be over a bed of carbs, but it was not and we had to order potatoes separately. The potatoes were good but I feel like the short rib plate would be more valuable with potatoes or rice. I wasn’t expecting just meat, but I still enjoyed my meal and the experience there! I would go back.

    We came here for dinner to celebrate my friend’s birthday. 11 adults and a 10 month old. Restaurant had no issues accommodating us all and had a high chair ready to go. First time there for all of us. We are family style so ordered various dishes. Birthday girl loved everything. For appetizers, we ordered: crispy Brussel sprouts, roasted cauliflower, Falafel bites, trio of dips and fried artichoke flatbread. Every single one was delicious. Brussel sprouts were probably my favorite. Had the Orchard Kale salad. It was good albeit a tad salty. Just make sure folks like kale as some in our group didn’t so if I had known that, I would have ordered a different salad. For entrees, we ordered: Branzino a la plancha, 2 full brick chicken orders, sausage risotto, and gypsy pepper rellenos with sides of rice pilaf and roasted potatoes. The branzino was tasty and perfect. The birthday girl loved it and she knows her fish. The pepper rellenos were also very good and a favorite but it was small so for a party of 12, should have ordered at least 3. The chicken was moist and flavorful. Risotto wasn’t my favorite but everyone else at the table loved it and it went quick. Potatoes won out over the rice pilaf. Group was surprised at how good the potatoes were. Bottom line- food was great and everyone enjoyed it. Service was hit or miss. They were very attentive initially and great at asking for drink orders and refills of said drinks. But at times they would disappear. We would have to ask for someone to come by. But everyone was nice. Luckily we were not in a hurry. All in all, we all would go back. Great atmosphere. Right in Santana Row so can go out for drinks and dancing afterwards or just hang out making it super convenient.

    The staff was very friendly, from the hostess to our server. My date and I shared a number of their small plates, and I tried the pomme punch and margarita cocktails, both of which were very good (pomme punch preferred). The trio of dips; the octopus; the house potatoes, would be my preferred dishes that night. If I had to critique, the wagyu skewers were a little tough, but the sauce it was served in was great.

    I absolutely love the lamb shank! It is perfectly cooked, very tender! The couscous has such a nice flavor that pairs with the lamb. The trio of dips was so yummy. I preferred the chips for the dips, due to the pita bread being raw. I’ve had the pita on a few other occasions and it was actually cooked all the way, plus very tasty. A bit disappointed that I couldn’t fully enjoy the pita. Otherwise everything was good. We also got the brussel sprouts. The dip pair well with the brussels. For my drink, I got the Toddy on the Row. I love a Hot Toddy! It could do without the cookie they provide. Warning the espresso martini is very strong. Super yummy though!

    Very subpar service. Food is good but the experience was not the best as they seated us in a corner and then even though the restaurant was empty they seated everyone right next to us. We left 90 mins later and the restaurant was still empty. The waiter forgot about my chickpea allergy and they were tons of them in the salad I ordered. No apologies. Nothing. Would not go again

    We eat here often and love everything about Meso. However this is the first time we have been very disappointed. Not sure if they changed the waiting staff or what but they forgot our main dish .. their branzino fish. How can they forget the main dish. We waited an hour and finally said forget this and then the waiter said your fish is coming. We said we are done eating and to cancel the fish as it can’t come now after eating everything else. And the waiter didn’t offer us any apology or free drink or appetizer for his mistake. If he had done that and said the fish got overlooked or other excuse we would have been ok with that. But nothing. Manager never came over to apologize for the mishap. We will try them one more time and if service is the same, that will be it for Meso and we will inform our friends of them. Sad to see such a great place from from 5* service to 1*

    Such a great place! Outstanding dishes, great service and overall amazing atmosphere! It is quite pricey, however, for the price the portions are great, ended up taking back half of the food for our table of two. Definitely recommend coming on an empty stomach. Amazing experience overall! 10/10 would recommend.

    Sad to see the quality of the place has gone down. The Old Fashion was made with a ice cube that melted very fast , the drink was very syrupy. For restaurant quality food , the steak has so many tendons and very bland. I don’t think it was worth the price . Lastly the artichoke on the flatbread was fried too hard . The dining experience felt very rushed. The hummus & pita was great as always along with the roasted potatoes!

    Wonderful experience! This was my second time dining here. We came here for our Valentine’s Day dinner. We loved all the drinks we ordered, highly recommend the espresso martini and the passionfruit mojito! You can’t go wrong with anything ordered here! Our server was absolutely wonderful and attentive! And our food was 10/10 with each dish and came out super quickly! The ambiance here is absolutely so romantic and yet still peaceful. We will be coming here again and again :)

    Dismal experience. I don’t know what’s happened to this place. Tasteless. Not any kind of tastes I’m familiar with as Mediterranean…hummus, bad. Tsaziki was basically cream cheese. Babbaganoosh, tangy and sour. Risotto, mushy/soupy/tasteless. Baklava, basic Phylo dough…none of the nuts or honey. (excuse spellings) All in all….D-. Never again. Server tried his best.

    We were mildly surprised at the down fall of the restaurant. The mediocre service and food quality is disappointing.

    The food was really delicious and well-presented. The restaurant was clean, stylish and family-friendly and kids were kindly welcomed. The cocktails were unique and yummy. The waiters were really friendly however, as she realized that it was our first time to the restaurant, I would have liked her to explain us the food in more details. Overall, it was a lovely experience, quite expensive for the amount of food you will be served but worth the price for its quality. We would definitely recommend this place and will be visiting them in the future :)

    Food was delicious. The appetizers were small portions so if you go with a large group keep that in mind. The main courses are large. There were many servers assisting and yet it was difficult to get someone's attention to order drinks and get refills.

    Appetizers were delicious. Main dishes were okay but underwhelming. Service was poor. Waited for a while initially to be assigned a server. Had to ask for dishes to be cleared in between courses, had to ask for second set of plates/cutlery for main course. Previously enjoyed the brunch here but not sure if we’d come back for a special occasion dinner

    Great find for a Santana Row restaurant. Reasonable price for the location and good sized portions. Had lamb shank w/ couscous, large salad to share and truly excellent charred eggplant - the 1st time I have loved eggplant in my life. We reserved late so ended up eating at the bar, but bartender and waiters were all courteous and quick

    We deeply appreciate the rave review! So happy to hear we've changed your opinion on eggplant! We hope to see you soon.
