My company took us here for dinner after work and we went up to the private room upstairs but on this day the air was not working and it was extremely HOT!!! The pre-selected food was average and the best thing on the menu was the guacamole!

Good food...but expensive for what you get! This is Tex-mex fare and not the best that I've had. You always start with chips and salsa and their salsa didn't impress. The drinks here are way too expensive.

The food is often very good at this after work Mexican/Southwest restaurant. We have been there several times and it is always crowded during the week. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is great, The food is amazing and the prices are totally reasonable. The staff is friendly and you get your food fast (too fast almost, you're barely settled into your seat that the food comes).

I'm normally not a great fan of Mexican food. Probably, because most of the times these restaurants are part of a national chain and thus settle for average quality. Not at the Mez: great food, very friendly staff (!!!) and very nice atmosphere.

Our family of four went to Mez for an early lunch on Mothers Day. After realizing that any brunch restaurant, on that day, was going to be a zoo, I came her on the recommendation of colleagues. It was a good choice. On a weekend, there's plenty of parking. The ambience is really glorious, full of light, very high ceilings,... More

We came to Mez for a lunch after graduation. They were able to seat 12 of us without hesitation. The service and food were great!

I've got a thing for trying fish tacos at different restaurants, and was pleased to see two (or three?) different types of fish tacos at Mez. I came back a second evening and had the additional version. I enjoyed both quite well. I was happy to see the beer selection included things other then the typical mexican beers. (nothing against...

We came here after a recommendation from the lady at he front desk of our hotel. This is an upscale Mexican restaurant (that also has other options) so prices are a little up there. Definitely get the guacamole, one of the best I had. Our server was super friendly and on top of everything. The food was pretty delicious! Nice... More
