Mexican
Mesita, which translates to “small table”, serves authentic, modern, Mexican cuisine in a vibrant atmosphere. The menu, created by Chef Victor Chicas, features fresh guacamole prepared table-side, mouth-watering Mexican street corn, fire-grilled fajitas, along with burritos, tortas, tacos and many other house-made Mexican dishes. The combination of our traditional menu and playful décor with our rustic Mexican flair provides a dining experience that truly embodies the Mexican spirit. Mesita is the newest addition to the Rockville Centre restaurant scene and we are steps away from the LIRR.

I was there 04/02/2021 for brunch I had made a reservation. One of the hostess was really sweet but the other one gentleman with glasses was nasty for some reason and giving us attitude telling us we don't have a reservation. It takes two seconds to look up what reservations you have booked. No need to give poor service and making yourself look like a fool. Besides that the food was great and the atmosphere was good. I would recommend this place.

We had a great time at Mesita! We had to push back our reservation, and they accommodated us with no issues. The manager, a super nice Irish gentleman (whose name escapes me at the moment) was great! He checked in, but not often enough where it got annoying. Our food was hot and delicious. The drinks were yummy! Overall, it was a great experience! We will be back!

Best tacos in RVC, but horrible service. Every five minutes a waiter came to ask what will order, always in a hurry. They wanted us to order quickly and they did not allow us to enjoy the moment. I know we have a limit time, but they dont have concerns with the customers.

Came for brunch...Loved the food, everything was very tasty! Make sure you get the table side guac! The drinks were well crafted and very good, exceptional actually! Only thing is I would like to come when it’s less crowded. I haven’t seen that many people in a restaurant in quite some time. Tables are spaced, but definitely not 6 feet. I think they should invest in some partitions, because they really have a good thing going!

Such a Great Experience, I’ve tried a couple of Places in RVC but this was by far the best Mexican place I’ve been to in that area. For starters the staff was amazing, Very polite and respectful. I had a reservation and was seated in under 5 Minutes which is Great, The restaurant was well spaced out but there were significant amount of people which made the environment feel good. The DJ was on point with the music, It wasn’t boring and I love that, That’s my type of environment. The Waitress was amazing, She let us know the specials for the night. The drinks we initially ordered was VERY watered down so they gave us 2 shots of Tequila on the house which was what I expected and Were told to order other drinks for the second round which we did. The Margarita on the Rocks was GREAT, You felt the alcohol. So that was a minor mishap, The appetizer was tasty !! And The food was really good and Came out fast as well. Clean surroundings of the tables, Clean maintained Bathrooms. The Manager approached my table and the tables surrounding mine twice to ensure everything was in order and we felt comfortable which I personally appreciate a lot. I felt very comfortable, Really enjoyed this restaurant, will definitely be returning!! No complaints, Thank you Mesita !!!

We were seated right away (had reservations) and greeted by our waitress quickly. The waitress was cheerful and had great suggestions. Food came out quickly but we were not rushed to finish and enjoyed the entire dinner. Highly recommend steak, shrimp, chicken or combo fajitas. We tried the combination fajita which was very flavorful and had enough to enjoy leftovers the next day. Several great drink options and the tres leches cake for dessert was delicious. There were groups of all ages including, couples, friends and families.

First of all- the food is always amazing. We got the table side guacamole, authentic street shrimp tacos (holy smokes) and chicken enchiladas. All amazing. No complaints. Little pricey but worth it!

Our server? -100/10. We had a reservation and were sat in the bar area at a table. Natalie was her name. I’m assuming she was a bartender as well because she spent most of her time behind the bar. Initial reaction from her was complete annoyance like “why are you here”. She rolled her eyes, hastily took our order, and not once came back to see if we needed anything. We had to ask a manager for more water, that’s how awful it was. For the price of the food- I expect better service. We decided that should we return- we will specifically ask to NOT be sat in her area. I can understand being busy or overloaded with tables but- her attitude completely ruined a lovely, much needed evening out for us. Your staff does make a difference!

Went on Friday the 12th and was pleasantly surprised with a live Dj. I was expecting the salsa music which I love but this was nice and unexpected.
The Dj was great, mixing old with new and it was so good I just wished they had dancing 💃🏽. Felt like old times. Thanks mesita for a great pre valentines meal with music 🎶

I was very displeased with the service of the security and management team. While I was visiting this establishment I as well as my guest was verbally harassed in which we defended ourselves but we were treated as we were the aggressors in the situation. They do not follow social distancing protocols within this establishment I requested that the security guard not get in my face to which she responded that he did not need to listen to me and respect the CDC guidelines of 6 feet.

As someone who has been patronizing this establishment for over three years I am extremely disappointed in this experience. I would not recommend anyone to service this establishment as they do not provide a safe and inclusive environment for all patrons.
