This was my first visit to this location. I really enjoy the space! It has a big open space with great atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was good. I decided to go for the chili rubbed smoked brisket. Delicious!

Decent drinks, but great food. Some nice layering of flavors in both dishes I was able to taste. It was right when they opened, so the atmosphere was non-existent, but I'm sure that is not the norm. They were starting to get busier as I was leaving.

We hosted our son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner here from out of state and it was PERFECT! Kassi, who coordinated the event with us was incredibly helpful and on top of everything. The staff we had for the event, Tabitha and Theresa were amazing and the food was DELICIOUS! ( And we are from Texas, so we know good Mexican food!) The private room was the perfect size and our guests raved about every aspect. Highly recommend. They made it stress free for us and we will definitely be back.

Delicious food and beverage options as well as top notch incredible guacamole makes this a dinning experience that can't go wrong. A professional courteous and friendly staff working with you makes for all the better experience. Keep in mind this is a popular spot with good reason so do not expect a quiet dining experience.

Nice upscale Mexican restaurant. Pleasant contemporary decor. Quiet upscale ambiance. Courteous, attentive wait staff. Food was well prepared. Drinks are a little pricey but enjoyable.

I love this place! It's pretty busy, so I would recommend a reservation. Also, Sunday evenings are a great time to go. They have a kids meal that is a great value - drink, side, entree, and dessert for $4.99. The food is great and the atmosphere is even better!

Romantic ambiance with some fun mixed into the decor, which is the best part. Otherwise, it is expensive Mexican that runs pretty sweet for my taste. Drinks are good but pricy. Service is fine when it's not busy. I don't mind meeting people here if they want to come, but I don't choose Mez.

It was ok. I gave it 4 stars instead of 3 because of value. wait staff was attentive, though it wasn't very busy at the time. vegetables were a bit on the sweet side and margarita did not have salt rim. I got the brisket and it tasted like really good roast beef.

Planning our rehearsal dinner at Mez was a breeze! All costs were clearly stated on the website, and the event coordinator (Kassi) responded to emails very quickly for the entire duration of the planning period. We were also very impressed with the food and quality of service. We received many compliments from our guests on the venue and highly recommend it!

Met a good friend for lunch. We both enjoyed our entrees very much. Plenty big portions, very tasty and interesting presentations and the kind wait staff gave us ample time to finish our conversation long after we'd finished eating! How often does that happen?! Loved it!

Quite busy place, better to reserve upfront. After a 15min wait, absolutely reasonable, I had my table. I asked for recommendation to the waiter and I was very happy about the suggestions. The food was very good and even the service was great. Very good place to go if you like Mexican food.

My daughter and I went Mez for the first time. Very beautiful restaurant and atmosphere. Lighting was not too bright, and to me that was perfect. Our server was very friendly and accommodating. He knew the menu and items very well. Our entrees were delivered hot and appetizing and in a timely manor. I had the vegetable tacos, and my daughter had the chicken tacos.They were very, very good. Customer service was on point our entire visit. The restaurant appeared fairly cool to me and I attribute that to the high ceiling. I’ll wear a light jacket next time. The great customer service and great menu will bring us back to Mez!

Good food. Very busy on a Tuesday lunch time. Parking will be a ways out. Courteous staff. Chips come with the sauce you buy. I recommend the mango habanero.

This is a step up from your typical Mexican restaurant. Great food and choices, friendly staff, and clean dining room. The only things to be aware of is, parking can be limited during peak hours, and this is a popular place for lunch, so call ahead for larger groups.
