My favorite restaurant in the city. Ican never go wrong with the wine list, food, service, ambiance.
What a pleasant way to relax & spend an evening with my wife - all the while enjoying very good food and exceptional service. Thank you

Glad they now serve lunch
Server was attentive. Food was good. Patio was comfortable.
Outstanding!!! From reservations to exit.. Staff was extremely attentive. Food was exceptional as was expressed by all members of our party to include our ten year old grandaughter. Annette would have been extremely happy.
Very good ambiance, food and service. The only distractor was: for such nice ambiance etc. we were handed a one page menu that was stained and ugly. Took away a lot from the experience.
We arrived in time, it took them about 15 minutes to get our table, the place was not busy at all, once seated, our waitress took a while to get our drink order, (on the plus side the beer was cold ) we order the appetizer, it came with in reasonable time, we order the entre, I ordered the Delmonico Rib Eye, ordered medium, my wife ordered the crab cakes, when our food arrived, my stake overcooked and dry, I informed my waitress, brought me another steak cooked the same way, I guess it was the same steak, no flavor and dry, it was as if I was chewing on and old piece of leather. I only eat 1/3rd of it. By the time we were done dinner for two, One margarita, one cold beer, one glass of wine, one appetizer, crab cakes and a stake, total bill $130.00 plus. Very disappointed
The service was so poor, as we have also experienced in the past, that we had a drink and left.
Highly dissapointed with this place!
We waited over an hour to be served, our waiter dissapeared for half an hour, and when food finally arrived my steak was dry and actually burnt! Worst restaurant experience ever!
Horrible Service with horrible service.
Service was horrible at least our waitor was. We saw couples enjoying their time with their server but us. We ordered coctails and we're approached 15 minutes later asking if what beer we ordered. After we explained that we ordered mix drinks he asked if we were sure as if we were liars. Then we received our meal which I would say was less than hot but we weren't able to explain since we were not visited again until our meal was over. We also heard the two couples behind complain as he forgot their order and he was only serving 3 tables total. It was a less than amazing Valentine dinner for the crazy price we paid.
Awful! Never again!
We arrived just on time (7:30pm) and were seated in the sports bar area and not in the dining room! Very noisy and very uncomfortable. Our waiter was immediately very pushy and came 4 times to take our orders. When we were ready, he was nowhere to be find! Finally he came and took our orders (3 different appetizers and 3 different entrees) without taking notes. After 45 minutes, another server came to serve just our entrees. The appetizers were not ordered! I called for the manager who took another full 10 minutes to show up! He had no explanation, no excuses and didn't propose any solution! We left that miserable place at 8:45pm without having been served any food, not even some bread!
THANK YOU TO THE nTH POWER
This was our first time and the staff were very accommodating. I wanted an extra special environment for my 7th Anniversary. I physically visited five well known area restaurants to see for myself if they had the environment I was looking for and Mesa Street Grill was the next to last stop. The moment I walked into the front door I knew this was the right place. When the day of my anniversary arrived my wife was elated at the location and the service along with the attentiveness. A special thank you to our server Rauk who was extraordinary. He did not get upset when we informed him the Wine Room was too cold and even found another table for us after the manager turned down the refrigerated air. I am more than pleased with Mesa Street Grill for helping me give my wife an Anniversary and a memory that she and I will both cherish for a lifetime. We will be back in the near future but nothing can capture that first magical moment that we have already experienced. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Mitch Brice
Cool Mesa St
Great wine list, food, good service but was very uncomfortable in the restaurant. The temp had to be mid to high 60's most people had coats on. We were not near the door or outdoor patio. Put a damper on the evening. John
Enjoyable and quiet lunch
I heard about the Lobster Mac and Cheese which wasn't on the lunch menu but they made it for us anyway. A real must have. The Bananas Foster was quite a show and very good.
wish we had a better experience
7 people, 6 plates of beef, none of which were tender or juicy. just short of $900 after $120 tip. The appetizers were great but small, the wine was great and we found a screwtop wine for $35 that everyone liked. The sides we had with the meat (extra and above the $45 sinuous cow cuts) were tasty. Mac and cheese was awesome. The 7th meal was a crabcake plate and it was great. We had Ribeyes cooked medium rare and there was zero marbling, no juice and very sinuous in streaks running through them. The others were NY Prime and although I didn't try a bite, they had low opinions of their meats. I left meat on my plate, so that says a lot. Overall, we all felt pretty unhappy with our meats. Many in the party mentioned better meats at several other restaurants, and the names thrown out as better were low level chain type of places and not Cattlemans and Ruths Chris, which can serve a piece of meat. The bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed jalapenos were great and came on many plates. I think they should know our opinion, but none of us are confrontational types, so we just smiled and left.
Good meal service was slow
Good meal service was slow JAIME was a very good waiter.
Mesa Street Grill is one of our favorite restaurants in El Paso. Food is always delicious and consistent. Service this time was a little off, but normally very good. We highly recommend.

Family dinner for 10 (5 kids) and they sat us in the patio dinning area which is a smoking area--totally inappropriate for kids. The service was terribly slow.
Mes Street Grill, El Paso, TX 29 Nov 2015
Went for an early birthday celebration, very nice place and the food was great. Definitely will return!
Great Experience for Anniversary on 11/28/15
My wife and I went to Mesa Street Grill for the first time on our 28th anniversary. We had reservations and arrived a little early but we were seated quickly as it was a slow evening. I had the steak Diane and my wife had the Salmon. Both meals were excellent. The service was fantastic, the ambiance was great. It made for a very nice and romantic dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed the the experience and will plan on going back. The only negative thing that happened was a group near us that was very loud. The rest of the restaurant was quiet but this group felt that everyone else had to hear everything they were saying. Thank goodness it was near the end of our meal before they really became annoying. No matter where you go you can't escape rude. This was not the restaurants fault.
Nice place for couples
The décor and atmosphere was very nice. The restaurant had an air of fine dining. The wine list was quite extensive. However, the actual menu was quite lacking and offered a small list of items. For such a small list of food items, they were quite pricy. Nevertheless, a good time was had by all. The establishment felt better suited for couple drinks and dessert or a light meal. It does not seem suited to take the family for a meal.
I took my wife out for our 31st Annaversary, I wanted someplace nice, and fancier than places we usually go. This place fit the bill. It took a little longer than I would have liked, to get things rolling. But after that the service was really good, the food was better. I left satisfied, and with a desire to return.
Great Place Great Food
My first trip but will NOT be my last. Took clients out for dinner and we were all impressed.

I am sure anything on the menu is well worth trying. The chicken was outstanding as was the steak and cake. The green chili casserole is a must. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
NY strip was not that good, even thou it was supposed to be prime it was like bottom tier choice. I can grill much better.
first visit back since they moved....
This was the first time we have been back since they moved. We had gotten away from going there because the bar noise. It was never terribly loud, but there were a few times a conversation in the dinning room was difficult. Flash forward to this location....OMG. What a perfect atmosphere in the dinning room. I love the separation of the two areas, and it was much brighter and pleasant feel. It has a sleek look that better matches the wonderful food. The food has always been outstanding and continues to be so.
great food and ambience
Our wonderful meal was relaxing and un hurried. No need to rush out so they could seat other patrons. We were there for about 4 hours. Wine was excellent and the lamb and steak were done to perfection. Wait staff was very accommodating
A great experience and super service. Food was fresh and well prepared. Glad we stopped.
Excellent couples place
Great restaurant, the ambiance was great, though a little loud on the music, but it didn't take away from the wonderful food, avocado fries, Caesar salad, green chile soup, osso bucco, and the salmon fettuccini pasta.
Good menu, good food. Very nice presentation. Salmon should have been cooked a bit Jess but still was overall good. I would return.
Our experience was wonderful! The food was great, the service was perfect, the cost was reasonable
Took my wife here for her birthday on a Wednesday night. We've been here many times for business and pleasure at the old and new location. The Means family knows how to do it right. The food was outstanding. We were allowed as much time as we wanted to have cocktails and appetizers before having our entrees and bottle of wine. Complimentary birthday dessert was a nice touch.
Great food, great atmosphere
There is a good variety on the menu fit for many different preferences. The atmosphere is classy, and the decor is very interesting. It's definitely a great place for a date or pretty much any occasion. There is a bar area as well as an outdoor screened-in area.
A Superb Place for Sunday Brunch
Mesa Street Grill wears many hats, but their latest chapeau as a Sunday brunch place is wonderful. We were all very pleased with the ambiance, the service and the quality and presentation of the food. Well done!

Good Restaurant. However , we couldn't get the table soon, even though we had a resavation. Also, the other customer who came after us was seated earlier than us. My wife upset a little. Not so quiet, but the food is good.
Great Dinner, Great evening
made reservations for an early dinner, (was going to the Eagles concert). dinner was really good and quick and prompt. attentive staff, friendly main waiter. everyone LOVED their food.
Great food !
Food was great here--would come back if we visit El Paso again.
First time at new location
This was our first time eating at their new location. They did a great job creating a nice ambiance. The menu is new and improved. The food was great, the service was outstanding. The tuna I had was very good, prepared just right. I tried my wife's steak, and the meat was done perfectly. Overall a great dining experience! We will definitely be back!
