Exceptional Dining Experience! – Best dinner out I've had in a long time! My husband and I enjoyed an appetizer of baked brie wrapped in phyllo dough with seasonal fruit and candied walnuts, I had the Salmon Veronique with beurre blanc ( French wine & butter sauce) over mashed potatoes with asparagus. Best salmon I've ever had, melt in your mouth! He had the New York strip steak, he said it was cooked perfectly and delicious! He also had the twice baked potato, so big he couldn't finish it! To top it off we had the chocolate cake, it was like a layered mousse with dark chocolate cake and ganache ( fudge like frosting). If you're looking for a fine dining experience then look no further than Mesa Street Bar and Grill located near the Don Haskins Center! EVERYTHING was so good! Excellent service provided by Diego!
Mesa Street El Paso bliss – If you are looking for a quality Wine Bar & Steak House that you would find in any major city - this is it ! Jazz playing in the background, a "Wine Spectator" quality wine list and great steaks. This is what you would expect to find in New York.
You will pay very reasonable prices for the wine, but the food is priced as in any major city. I was pleasantly surprised and plan to return soon. Pass the word...this is a gem !
Excellent Service, Excellent Food – My Name is Russel, I'm from El Paso, Texas.
I love to spend my time at The Mesa Street Bar & Grill.
You can always taste fresh ingredients in everything you order. A week ago I went with my wife and another couple and we had a great time, with a huge list of wines and EXCELLENT food.
Waiters are always there and always friendly.
For the kind and quality of food they serve, it's not expensive at all!!!
And if you are like me, a smoker, there's a patio where you can eat and just after the food, a good cigarrette or cigar (which you can buy there too).
Just an amazing experience!!!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Flavoring El Paso's restaurant scene with decadent American cuisine, extensive wine selections and the most cozy, welcoming dining environment.
Not very good food at all – Reservations are not required at this restaurant, contrary to what some may think. The service was very good, extremely attentive. The setting is beautiful, especially if you dine outside. The wine list is brilliant.
But, lets face it, the food stinks. The wine list has to be good to make you forget about the bland dishes you are eating. NO flavor. You can really taste the frozenness in the vegetables. Depending on what you order, the portions may be a little too generous, or not enough. My husband had the steak, which was shriveled and overdone, served with a jalapeno wrapped in bacon on the side(which is a little nasty if you think about it). I had the Chicken Cordon Bleu, which was a HUGE portion. I didn't want to finish, because it was so bad- but even if the food had been good I couldn't have eaten that much.
I didn't want to eat dessert, the food made me that sick. The ambience of this restaurant is amazing, but it is a lackluster imitation of sophisticated dining. I have eaten burritos more sophisticated than this bland fare. No thank you, Mesa Street Grill.
My only and favorite restaurant in el paso, tx – this is the only restaurant where I feel I getting the most out of what I pay for, good quality, good food, good taste, a little pricy fresh ingredients, my favorite a good dine experience, which is not easy to find in el paso.
El Paso has a restaurant to truly be proud of!!! – A group of 6 friends my wife, and myself (Couples night) went on a week night and had the best time. The service was outstanding and the wines were served perfectly. I didn't know that they had such a great list, also didn't know they won 2 awards for it. Maybe they need to get the word out better. The steaks are amazing, especialy the "in house" dry-aged, every bite was fantastic. Our service was impecable and the care and detail that went into every plate was perfect. We will be returning to Mesa Street Grill often, in fact we might break the different restuarant every week tradition. The one complaint I have is I wanted to be closer to the fire place, but we didn't know it was there and we made our reservation late. Check it out and make a reservation early. The best room in the house fills nightly along with the tempature controlled patio.
Food okay, service slow – We went here with another couple for lunch on a Sunday. Pulling into the parking lot, you couldn't even tell if they were open or not so one of us got out and tried the door first. The food wasn't anything super spectacular, but better than what you could find at most of the "pack em in, get em out" national chains. However, we thought the service was very slow, even for El Paso standards. Our water and tea glasses were empty more than once and we had to wait for the waitress to appear (we were the only ones seated in the "fireplace" room most of the time we were there). I'll go back for the food, but the service needs to be a little bit more attentive --- maybe I've just been spoiled with the Houston restaurant scene. Better "Opened/Closed" signage is needed.
