This restaurant was amazing. The food here is freshly prepared and delicious. The wait staff were all friendly. A+ margaritas. We will return the next time we are in Tampa.

I really liked this place. Great ambiance, dim lights, no Mexican music though. Service was outstanding, we were promptly seated upon arrival. We had the pork Tamales which were really good and spicy. I had the chicken Santa Fe and hubby had the Trio. I have to say this Mexican restaurant has an eclectic twist to it. As dessert we... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. The food was fantastic and quite reasonably priced with suitable portions. The daily specials are worth trying. Don't miss this spot if you are in the area, one of the best meals we had on our visit.

We have eaten at the Red Mesa down town St Petes and the Red Mesa on 4th street. The food was great at both locations. The service was also great. I would recommend a reservation to reduce your waiting time.

We visited Red Mesa today for lunch and had an excellent experience. The parking lot wqs full but we were seated and served promptly. We ordered two of the daily specials, ceviche and pork tacos, and the chipolte shrimp. Everything, incliding the sides, were excellent. My only regret is that we won't be able to explore more of the dishes... More

This place is by far the best restaurant in st Pete, nothing else comes close and I'm surprised it's not listed in the top three. Been going here for many many years and never had a bad dish. The menu is amazing and they are very creative with there dishes and you can tell they put effort into their food... More

Red Mesa offers excellent Southwest food as opposed to traditional Mexican food. They occasionally offer a Mexican dish, but most of their fare consists of creative dishes with a Southwest accent, including seafood. The restaurant is fairly small and tends to be noisy at dinner time, but the food is consistently good. Locals know that they offer one of the... More

Put $20 on the bar to cover a drink & grilled chicken quesadillas and walked out without touching my taco salad. Appetizer was bland enough to be mistaken for wet wonder bread. Bar service was thin. When signaling to a waiter to come over so I could get a fork for the salad, he looked straight at me and walked... More

My daughter, who lives in St. Pete, took my sister, my niece and me to one of her favorite St. Pete restaurants, Red Mesa. The atmosphere is stunning, and the menu offers something for everybody. My daughter and I ordered the Taco Salad, which was the best I've ever had. The other two ordered fish and veggies, and they loved... More
