Ordered the Steak and Cake. Filet small but cooked correctly. Crab cake had very little crab...mostly filling. Beer was $8 for a pint of Stone IPA. Bread was microwaved...chewy and tough. Probably won't be back. Service was ok. Good waitress but dirty table...had to ask several times to have it cleaned.

Sorry we weren't able to impress you, Phil. The condition of your table is really upsetting, as is your bread's texture. Do you remember which day you came in? I'll definitely talk to the team about this, so let me know. Despite that, I'm glad you enjoyed your steak, and I hope you'll give us another chance to wow you... More

Looked cool on outside and in but order was screwed up and food was nothing special. Typical El Paso wait staff - poorly trained and unmotivated. Hopefully it will get better if the mgr wants it to.

Went there for dinner. It is a nice enough restaurant, and for El Paso would be considered upscale. The service was actually quite good, but everything we ordered was pretty much a disappointment. The steak was cooked well, but was not a good cut of meet. The tempura vegetables had no lightness at all, the were essentially dipped in heavy... More

Although it's good to hear that you were pleased with our service, I wish you felt the same way about our dishes. It seems like we fell short, and we'll definitely discuss this with our team -- the jalapeno shouldn't have been the best thing you tried! In the meantime, thanks for your feedback, and we hope you'll give us... More

The food at Mesa Street Grill is very good. It's a little on the expensive side however it is well worth it. There was a group of 4 of us having a business dinner and we shared a little of what we all ordered. There wasn't one thing that I wouldn't order again. Service was top notch and I would... More

Was in El Paso for business and several folks suggested the Mesa Street Grill. Had a good meal there and I would go back. It is a small, older non-descript place near the university. It is somewhat upscale and I found it a bit pretentious. Prices are a bit high. Smaller portions than I expected. They have a small but... More

Thanks for giving us a try! It's so rewarding to hear that you enjoyed our dishes and martinis, but I'm surprised that you felt our portions were a bit small. We don't get that feedback often, but we'll certainly look into it! In the meantime, thanks for reviewing us, and we hope to welcome you back next time you're in... More

I visited her a few months ago and was very dissapointed with the service and wrote a review reflecting this.

We stopped here en route to a performance of Jersey Boys in El Paso. Service by Hugo was impeccable throughout the supper experience. Excellent beverage list with generous pours and a menu with many tempting entries. My filet and wife' crab cake were prepared exactly as requested and delicious, and better than anything we have found in Las Cruces. Ambiance... More

Excellent food and overall service was very good. The Ahi Tuna was cooked well and the Jalapeno appetizers were excellent. Parking is limited so valet is encouraged. Drink prices are a little high, but not too bad.
