Loved it! Far exceeded expectations!
We loved the outdoor patio seating and the menu was really interesting. We ordered salmon cooked in the big stone bowl, and it was just amazing. The bowl was so hot you couldn't touch it, and the food inside was still cooking when we received...More ... read more

Great spot for appetizers and drinks. Service was great, and the appetizers were very good, but the entrees lack flavor.

Went to Mesi 21 for my sisters birthday and the food was great,staff was quick and provided excellent customer service.

The best food ever!! They used to have a place in Clermont so we came down to Orlando to their downtown location. We genuinely miss their food! Blows all other places out of the water!

Scenery is good, good atmosphere. I’d like to come back and try the tower! :-) Overall it was good, nothing great but we’d come back. They seemed to be “out of several things” which is inexcusable for a Friday IMO, otherwise it was fine.

We like the views.. happy hour with six dollar margaritas is great and the food is pretty darn good!

Great food
This is the second time I have really enjoyed my meal here. We ordered the guacamole, which was fresh and the chips were warm and crispy. We all enjoyed our salads, mine was served with chicken and it was very tender and flavorful. I really...More ... read more

Great place for fresh Mexican food!
We have been here a few times now and it's been consistently wonderful. Fresh food, indoor dining is chic, outside patio has a nice view of Lake Ivanhoe, the service friendly and attentive...we've never been disappointed.

Great views on Lake Ivanhoe and great guacamole and margaritas, among other items. We love it!

The food was amazing. My wife and I went here for Valentine Day and we loved the view of the lake. The service was great and the food was very flavorful and authentic. It was presented extremely well. No complaints at all. I am sure we will be back!

I had lunch with two friends at Mesa 21 and just can’t even tell you how much we enjoyed our time there. Beautiful setting, great service, delicious food.

Mexican burger; yum!
I was pleasantly surprised! I was not prepared to like it so much because this is a chain restaurant but the service was great and the burger was awesome. The waiter was very attentive. I came in alone for a bit after shopping. I am...More ... read more

Party of 4. Entrees came out for 2 of us. A full 5 mins later 3rd person got food...3 mins later ..4th person got food. We all started eating. This shouldn’t be happening. It’s awkward and unpleasant. Wait for the full order to be ready before you serve.

Better'n most TexMex restaurants, no broiled cheese plates
Very nice atmosphere, particularly the view from the lake deck. Home made tortilla are served be before ordering and are hot crisp and thick. We had Queso Fundido, appetizer. Very bland/tasteless cheese warmed in a bowl with ONE jalapeño on top and 4 or five...More ... read more

Overall nice experience there. The food is delicious. Qudous to the chef! We had ceviche, roasted cauliflower, and chicken quesadillas. There are few things they can improve though. 1- the valet guy had some attitudes. You know like people who think they are the managers are valet section and clients has to follow their orders or so.

Wonderful venue for sunset
Travelzoo had a 4 for $97 feature and we shared this with another couple. It included 4 cocktails, 2 appetizers and 4 dinners. Mesa21 gets written up poorly for service, but our experience was very positive. We saw not only our server, but several others...More ... read more

We wanted to enjoy lunch with a view this day because the weather was just perfect. An Orlando Sentinel article from a couple years back highlighted 20 restaurants in Orlando with stunning views. We decided to try Mesa21. It wasn't busy at all for a beautiful Sunday. More than half the inside and outside tables were vacant. Servi ... read more

Refreshing Mojito and, once again, we ordered too much food, even though we cut back! Everything is yummy. Couldn't take a to-go box unfortunately as we were heading to a symphony concert and car would be in a parking garage for multiple hours. Ah well, maybe next time I'll bring a ice bag for the car!

Excellent margaritas & guac... but “heavy” meals
I was one main dish away from rating this place “Excellent”. The view was fantastic- as this sits on a pretty lake. The classic margarita was perfect and beautifully presented. The guacamole appetizer was delicious and came with chips, chicharrones and two amazing sauces. My...More ... read more

Pretty View, (Mostly) Awesome Service!
We went for a Sunday brunch and arrived just as the restaurant opened. Our server was very sweet and attentive. If she didn't know the answer to our questions on the menu (I am gluten-free), she asked the cook. I ended up having tacos and...More ... read more

I ordered the potato medallions and they came out undercooked, but when they brought a replacement...they were still undercooked! Also, I order an alcoholic beverage, but instead of telling me they were out of some of the ingredients to make it, they substituted whatever they had in stock which was horrible!
