Décor is great. Food was good. We went for lunch. Very good vegetarian options. They have separate menu for that. Did not try any of there drinks but there bar looked well stocked.

Stellar! What an experience. The Columbian Ahi Tuna was the best I have ever had. The black bean cakes were scrumptious. Tequila selection was beyond expectations. The service by Jordan was on point. Obviously a well managed restaurant. Can't wait to come back and do it all over again!

We ate dinner here & once again it was delicious. The waitresses were very helpful & our food was perfect. I also treated myself to a mango margaritas & it was super yummy. We'll come here again.

Always when we visit Traverse City, our first stop is Red Mesa. The atmosphere is warmly Southwestern and the food and drink follow suit. We love the bar.........friendly bartenders and superb drinks along with fresh chips and homemade salsa. My husband and I usually get the roasted pike in a corn husk with black beans, rice, corn. So beautifully prepared and delicious! One of those meals that is completely remembered.

This place uses as many local products as they can, which is awesome. However, this place was average in terms of their food. It is more Tex-Mex than Mexican, with almost everything coming in a tortilla. The refried beans were smoked (gross) and my rice and bean burrito lacked seasoning and heat. The tortilla soup was broth-based and good, but not what I expected in a tortilla soup (zero cheese). In TC obviously one isn't going to find show-stopping Mexican. Good for families, not the best choice for a couples dinner.
