"Definetly a family ambiance and not for a girls night. Food is terrible and very overpriced. The queso was $12 and was cold and all it was was a bowl of cheese lit on fire and was horrible! Second, the bus boy spilt an entire bowl of red salsa on my. Luckily I was wearing dark clothing on which it didn't show up. But no one compensated me for anything nor did the manager come over to apologize. Third, they didn't tell us that they can't split our bills. STAY AWAY AND NEVER GO HERE!"

"We loved it! Server was attentive, but not intrusive. Food came fast and was perfect temp. We just did the tapas menu. The Sangria was terrific. The only negative for me was the patatas bravas. I didn't care for them. I've had much better in DC."

"We had tenderloin tips and mushrooms for an appetizer, very nice, tender, lots of flavor. Our entree was paella for two. It was good, but not great, had tomato sauce base, little or no saffron. Good amount of fish, chorizo was good. We had a very nice evening."

"We live out of town but have eaten at El Meson for years. It is a totally comfortable neighborhood gem with great tapas, and a Spanish wine list that is full of gems that are fairly priced. This time, Jessica recommended a great bottle that she had just placed on the wine list."

"We were recommended to visit the Rice Plaza and one the top rated restaurants there is El Meson. They feature Spanish and Cuban dishes, including several paella's. We shared a meat paella that had sausage, pork, beef and chicken. It was delicious. The salad was also especially tasty with a unique vinaigrette dressing. The mojitos were good. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant."
