I came here with my sister and her family, the decor is very nice and interesting. A little bit of a mash of US and different European styles. Quite memorable. The menu is quite extensive, there are options for all tastes so I think everyone could find things they liked. I very much enjoyed the food we had (patatas bravas... More

We have been coming to Meson Sabika for many years. It is one of our favorites and we were looking forward to celebrating our anniversary with a wonderful dinner. We liked the fact we could make a reservation through Open Table and had no wait at all when we arrived. We were seated in the room immediately to the right... More

Sat on the patio with a party of 6. It was crowded on a Saturday night. We asked to increase the reservation to 8 but they could not accommodate. The meal was great and ran 90 per couple with wine. Not bad.

In Naperville for a quick one night visit, we selected Meson Sabika for dinner and were extremely pleased we did. The atmosphere was really wonderful, being a warm evening helped I'm sure, as almost every table on the patio was full. The wait staff were very attentive and quick to help us navigate the menu. The food was incredible our... More

If you are in the mood for tapas served with European atmosphere try Meson Sabika. The service is very continental, attentive but no rush. I believe it took us 2 hours for lunch. No rush, but great attention.

Not worth the hype! Stay away from this place. Service is slow food is bland and waiters are too busy to assist you.

Every time I visit the area, we go to Meson Sabika, it's so good! From the green olives marinated in champagne vinegar to the bacon wrapped dates, to the goat cheese everything all the way to the almond pear tart for dessert, you will love it all!

We have been fans of Emilio's since he was with Cafe BaBaReBa and in Hillside so it was a treat to finally get to Naperville and enjoy the ambiance and terrific tapas choices there. Because we had been traveling we chose to eat inside in air conditioned comfort although I would enjoy the garden on a cooler day…just beautiful! Always... More
