Outstanding!

I first visited Mesa about six years ago. It was a different chef back then but, after this visit, I'm not quite sure why I waited so long to return because the food, service and ambience were all fantastic! We did six courses.

Fantastic! I love this place. Visiting this restaurant was one of my highlights of 2014. If you have someone special and you want to spend unforgetable evening, well this is it. The only disadvantage is a bit higher price, but I would say it is well compensated by quality and variety of food and great servis.

This restaurant features a classy atmosphere. You will have to choose between several dishes from vegie to carnivore. Wine choice is huge but champagne highly over-priced. Service was good however we had to wait over 1 hour between the appetizer and main course.

We enjoyed our lunch in Mesa from the very beginning to the end. Top quality food, both from tase, look and sophistication perspective. Very nice and friendly service. Cosy atmoshere. We paid ca 200 CHF for too, including drinks, wine and desert, which we regard as good price for the quality. Looking forward to coming here again.

We came here for the business lunch and we all found it amazing. From the amuse bouche to the dessert the meal was balanced and very well prepared. The service and the sommelier in particular are competent and friendly. The artichoke velouté with truffles, the duck as well as the apple dessert were just perfect!

Nice place. Food is good but I have been in better places in Zurich. Unfortunately in Zurich people are ready to pay overpriced food and think that when they pay more the food would be better. Ignorants!

we dined here last year for the Truffle Menu and to celebrate an occasion, and had a truly wonderful meal! Service was excellent, attentive & professional. The set menu was creative and beautifully plated. We would dine here again!

Wonderful restaurant, small and not so many tables (and that is good), very nice service, modern but no-nonsense-cooking, perfect cooked fish and meat, huge fantasy and outstanding wines.

We revisited Mesa to experience their autumn menu, and Chef Antonio Colaianni has created a combination of superb dishes - for sure among the very best dining experiences you currently can enjoy in Zurich. We chose the 6 courses menu with selected wine pairings, and our already high expectations have been matched or even exceeded. Starting with a warm loaf... More

It's easy to find a fine dining restaurant in Zurich but it's a tricky when you want to eat really good. I find this restaurant is exactly how it should be in a gourmet dining - a bit pretentious, great food, creative presentation and attentive service.
