We had an enjoyable dinner on the Patio... The Guacamole and variety of Salsa's were excellent!! I had a simple Quesadilla with Chicken Tingle - spicy chicken - my guests had the Salmon with Spinach and the Shrimp dish - the food was fresh and very flavorful!! Great restaurant. Very busy!! The reasons this is not a perfect score is... More

Every menu item I have had at this restaurant is delicious. I can't speak to authenticity, but for someone who eats a lot of Moe's and calls that Mexican, this is very much real Mexican food. The quesadillas are always so melty and amazing, and their chips and salsas really satisfy.

The food is fresh and flavors are mouth-watering! I have eaten there since it opened and have loved everything I've ordered. There is always a line a lunch so be prepared to wait or call in advance for a reservation. At dinner, you can come early and get a deal on tacos. Their patio seating in wonderful if you want...

This is the first mexican restaurant I have been to that is worth going back to. Its really nice, the food is excellent and they have a great cocktail menu. The service can be a little hit or miss and the wait at lunch especially can be irritating but the wait is generally worth it. They have a great patio... More

We chose a visit to Mez for an evening meal to try their healthier Mexican fare and to check out their reputable interior, and both did not disappoint. The menu is varied and the portions huge. I got the Carne Asada tacos which were good, but not as good as the burrito special my husband got. It was HUGE and... More

Really good food with great flavor. Salsas that are spicy but have flavor to go with the heat. Very attentive service. A definite step above the average Mexican restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere.
