Had a small luncheon at Mez today. The food was excellent, the atmosphere and service was very good. Prices are fair. We had two different types of Fish Tacos. Both looked great and tasted great.

Mez is a very large restaurant off Page Rd. that has a nice and varied menu of Mexican favorites with a gourmet flare. We had a group of 8 for lunch and all the dishes looked and tasted great. Tacos, Burritos, Carnitas etc. I had the daily special, a hamburger burrito with bacon, cheese tomatoes and spices. Came with a... More

A group of 5 of us went here for dinner. It is an attractive space, bustling on a Saturday night. Our server was pleasant and very accommodating. If only the food was more interesting. No one came away with high praise for their dishes. I had a dish of rice and corn with kale and shrimp. The dish was not... More

I was in town for business and met an old high school buddy who picked this spot. My buddy made a reservation, which surprised me for a Tuesday eve, but the place was nearly full when we arrived at 6:30. Clientele is mostly young-ish, and seems like a good gathering spot after work. With a nearly full house, the background... More

Service was poor, but food was delish. Order didn't address my special requests, but what I was able to eat was great. Loud, but I'd go back and ask to be moved if I got the same server's section.

We ate there as part of a party of 16. Mez was suggested by our group organizer after an event we attended. Here's my breakdown: FOOD: Super fresh chips and pico de gallo salsa - perfect! (But you need to purchase them as an appetizer, not given complimentary, as our server reminded us at least three times.) We had a... More

I was in town for business and meeting an old colleague. The bar was nice to get a drink and then I grabbed a bit to eat. The staff was very helpful and had recommendation of the shrimp dish with rice which was wonderful. Overall good service and food

This is a beautifully decorated restaurant with high ceilings and lots of stucco. The food isn't your typical fare that's found in most Mexican restaurants in the area. Unfortunately, the chips are not complimentary but they did come with 3 salsas and guacamole. We ordered the Chicken Tinga Enchiladas and the Enchiladas Suizas. The Chicken Tinga had quite amount of... More

The service was average---and the food was average. Nothing remarkable. I think I will be trying other restaurants in the area before I return to this one.

We had three airport pickups within an hour and this restaurant was a convenient location for everyone to meet at the same time. I don't normally choose restaurants that I have never visited before when I have guests, but Mez did not disappoint. It's Mexican food with nice presentation and tasty food.
