Mesa a a great experience with outstanding service, even if the wine selection could be better advised, and great food. I would have liked a little more seasoning in the main but the flavours combination is just great. The starter (pea velouté) was a real treat!

I was maybe more impressed the first time that I visited, but this is definitely one of my favorite places in Zurich. They didn't disappoint, but they were still a notch less efficient than the first time that I was there. I think the service was a bit clumsy this time, still very professional, but there was some light disorganization... More

We went to Mesa for dinner on Valentine's day. Reservations are necessary. The decoration on that special day was lovely and elegant. We ordered the 6 course dinner (without cheese). In the beginning, as well as towards the end and with the coffee, we were offered several very delicious and creative amuse-bouche, which increased our curiosity and anticipation for the... More

do not miss Mesa if you like to dine in style. Antonio and his crew has truly made this Restaurant into one of the best, not only in Zurich but probably Switzerland. Every single employee is highly professional, extremely helpful and educated on food and wine. They are all multilingual and extremely friendly, something that unfortunately is not the norm... More

For a celebration an excellent location, be it with family, friends or for business. The staff is friendly and attentive, but not intrusive; the food beautiful and delicious. The highlight for me were the numerous creative amuse-bouche that come between most courses.

Went here for a business dinner. Nice "living-room" setting with good high quality service. The food is very good. But you would expect this in this price range. Between the courses you will be served many amuses. Fortunately the amuses are tasteful - not the molecular cooking experiments - which I don't fancy. My starter was the sweetbread with white...

Mesa had been highly recommended to me, coupled with 17 gault millau points I arrived with serious expectations. The service was impeccable and we were almost certainly the two least likely guests there that night. You would never have known it, the staff were attentive and helpful throughout. The autumnal menu was fabulous and it almost seems unfair to single... More

Went there for lunch to experience why this restaurant is so hyped. Food was good, service polite but very standardized from a sequence of service point of view, almost robotic. The overall experience is ok and as expected but one has the impression that practices from other good restaurants were simply adopted, somehow the indivdual mark is missing. Prices are... More

Very beautifully presented selection of amazing small plates. Great selection of wine, interesting starters to choose from, fancy salt, great bread, not-too crazy, but unique and interesting main courses.....everything was right with great attention to details. The person who took us there is the regular customer to this restaurant, so I think we also got treated a bit better than... More

Despite the change of chef. This restaurant totally deserves the Michelin and Gaut&Millaut rating. The staff was extremely friendly and discrete. The atmosphere is contemporary and stylish
