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.

Staff was rude twice. I also don’t like sitting on top of other tables when 9/10th of the restaurant is empty.

Food and drinks were very good however service was slow. Only one bartender during Sunday brunch?! And chips and salsa which are normally complementary we were charged for…

Can I give it ZERO stars?! This place was awful, their food is overpriced and the portions are so small. Their taco tuesday menu is a joke and everything is so greasy and everything is an additional price! $2 for sour cream?!! The waitress will offer you everything on the menu as if it's complementary when everything costs, stay away from this poor excuse for a restaurant.

The waiter seemed to forget to give us water, napkins ect… He misplaced our order and came back 29 minutes later to ask for our order again. A lot of waiting. Food was delicious.

Hate leaving bad reviews, but this just did not live up to the positivity surrounding the place. Love the decor, ambiance is great, loud music (not mexican)..but good vibe. Unfortunatey it ended there. Server came by fairly quick with some chips and salsa. Salsa was bland and flavorless. Drinks came back quick and the server took our order. Pretty much the last time we seen him til the end. Food came real quick, like 10 minutes. No check in from our waiter on how it came out, drink refills, nothing. It wasnt til he came by to clear my empty plate (shrimp tacos, again lacked flavor) did we have to stop him from running to ask for 2 waters. They took longer to get back then the food order. Next was them clearing the table and him dropping off a check. Umm i guess no dessert tonight!

The straw breaking the camels back causing this review is now my wife is feeling sick to her stomache. Hopefully that too quick wasnt the reason!

First and last time…

We came here to celebrate my birthday. The food and the overall ambiance was great. My only complaint is that we were given a table so small it could barely fit our entrees and drinks. We had to keep clearing the table, move the candle and menu to make room. I recommend asking for a booth. Overall I was pleased with my experience and would return again.

Felt being rushed to finish our dinner - the same waiter kept coming to check if we were finished with our food. We were a party of 6 but 3 people came early and would not let them be seated. At the end of the day it would’ve been proper to let them wait inside for us instead of standing outside. They CLOSE AT 10! And our reservation was at 8:30. Extremely disappointed - the reserved table time doesn’t apply if it closes that soon from our reservation time.

Came here for brunch earlier today for my friends birthday. This was my first time eating here and it was absolutely delicious. My friend has been here multiple times before and had already told me that it was an awesome place. I’m really glad that we came here to celebrate her birthday and I look forward to returning.

Food was ok. Guacamole was excellent. However, our waitress didn’t check on us and when we wanted to order another pitcher of drinks we learned of a 90 minute time limit. We were given our bill and not allowed to order dessert or more drinks. Understand their need for rules but maybe tell your customer from the beginning of service.
