    The service was very friendly and great. The food was very nice and tasty for what we chose. The noise level gets a bit too much, almost pierces your ears sometimes and hard to hear others talking. Other than that we enjoyed it.

    Mesa VerdeResponded on 23 November 2021

    Thanks for the great review Annette! Sorry to hear noise level was a bit too much... Let us know when you're coming next time and I'll make sure you're sat at a quieter table.

    Second time going to mesa verde, it was again an exceptional experience. Food was fresh and very tasty, and our dietary requirements were catered to well, the chef made a fresh dish alternative for us. The service was also wonderful, the lady serving us was very bubbly and personable. Will be coming again!

    We had the chefs menu which was excellent. Our waitress was attentive and polite and the restaurant always has a great atmosphere. It’d be a 5/5 except the drinks we ordered let it down a little. My margarita was watery and my partners was very strong - so not mixed properly before pouring. Same issue with the margarita jug, which didn’t come with a stirrer. Otherwise great time all round, will be back again.

    Had such a lovely time at Mesa Verde! We were enticed to check out this restaurant after seeing their elevated Mexican menu. I was excited to try things I don’t normally see in other Mexican restaurants in Melbourne. My only two critiques are: 1) at times the service was a bit slow and we had to wave down the waiter and 2) the Margarita jug was very weak in comparison to ordering a singular margarita. My recommendation is don’t get the jug. Overall I can’t wait to come back!

    Food and drink was incredible - we ate a mainly vegetarian selection & the Brussel Sprout tacos were so good, theyve convinced us to have our next Birthday at Mesa Verde. Seriously excellent. The service was fantastic - the floor staff were fun, well informed and went above and beyond to answer any questions we had. Ambience is on point - highly recommend paying Mesa Verde a visit!
