We had a beautiful evening out on the patio, the food, service & atmosphere were great. Loved the waterfalls & fire pits. They have a delicious trio of salsas to start the meal. I highly recommend the chicken tortilla soup! It has a delicious new twist that I will be looking forward to having again as soon as we’re back in town.

We tried Mesero for the first time on a Friday, even knowing that it would be busy. We went early, which meant that there lots of families, which is cool - we had a young family at one time. But WOW - the noise level was unbearable. Partly because of the number of kiddos in the room, but mostly because of all the hard surfaces in the decor. As soon as an obnoxiously boisterous family was seated in the next booth, doint what could only be performance art by a dad who needed to demonstrate how much fun he was having with his son, at volume...all conversation ended for us. I couldn't hear myself think, much less hold a conversation.

Sadly, the terrific food takes a back seat to the aural beating we experienced on this visit. That said, the food was very good. We loved the chips and three salsas, the guacamole was a little mild but excellent and the chicken enchilada was very tasty, but the star of the show was the brisket taco. It was really good! The side slaw was cut long (making it hard to eat gracefully) and didn't have a lot of flavor, so that was a bit of a miss. The black beans on the side were good, as was the rice.

We took a slice of carrot cake home to eat dessert in some peace and quiet, and it was quite good, and unusually presented. The whipped icing is served as a topping, with candied nuts as a garnish. Not too sweet or dense, like a lot of carrot cakes. We liked it, too.

If we go back, we'll sit outside or take the food to go. I'm not sitting inside that torturous echo chamber, ever again.

Great lunch spot. Had quite a large group of people after a soccer match. The staff was fantastic, after we grew our numbers past our reservation size.

Food was great ! Service fantastic ! We were never without water, tea, chips and salsa.

Thank you and see you again soon

We have been here many times but tonight the kitchen must have been having issues. We had to wait over 40 minutes for salads. Something was wrong. Out server was fabulous and kept apologizing and checking. When they finally arrived they were what we expected.
Thanks

Neighborhood spot with patio and indoor dining. The service is great. Nick was our server. He gives us the right amount of attention. He lets us enjoy the evening without rushing us. Menu has a nice variety. The guacamole is delicious...choose from Tipico or a spicier version. The shrimp ceviche is an appetizer, but sometimes I have it as a meal. Most people don't eat Mexican food to order a salad, but even the salads are great. I like the salmon tacos as well as the salmon dinner plate with vegetables. There is a slow cooked pork dish that is also fantastic. Whatever you choose, you can't go wrong.

Never disappointed.

Even though they were experiencing the same staffing challenges all service businesses are faced with during the pandemic, Fabiola was gracious and attentive with her table-side service… and Jaime’s follow up and attention to detail was impeccable.

Great food (and beverages!) and wonderful service. This is what brings us back time and again to Mesero at Preston Hollow Village.

Very busy. Even at 6:30 there was a wait for a table. We were 6 minutes late arriving for our reservation due to traffic and the manager made us wait 15 minutes to be seated.
Food was fresh and tasty.

We love this Mesero location! The food is terrific. We love the Chicken Paillard , the kale salad, the fajitas and the queso blanco. Jaime is the best manager ever. He recently arranged a special table for our group that included several older grandparents who couldn't easily get upstairs.

The ranch water cocktail presentation is outstanding, BTW.

We’ve been to meseros so we decided to try this area. We got seated but the waitress was not pleasant. She was to everyone else in the party but with me specifically she was not. Not sure why but most likely won’t return to this meseros

Food was wonderful, but service was slow (1 hour until we got our food) and the noise level was very high. I measured it at up to 86db. That exceeds OSHA guidelines.

Everything was great except if you ate inside and wanted to have a conversation it was impossible because of the noise level. Luckily we were able to be seated outside. We were with another couple we hadn’t seen in a long time and would have been extremely disappointed if we had to shout all through dinner. Glad restaurant was busy for owners sake but don’t go if you want to talk during your meal.

First time there and had prompt service. Waitress made great suggestions and I chose the El Miguelito which was excellent. Queso Mesero was the best queso I've had, didn't understand bringing one big chip to pour some on and then leave with other chips not available for the bowl to be enjoyed but others were brought when asked. Overall we enjoyed the experience and will be back.

Food was dependably good from beginning to end. Something was amiss at the bar as we ordered the same margarita offering that we have for literally years at 5 different Mesero locations going back to the one that used to be at McKinney and Armstrong. Hopefully this was an aberration.
