    Went to Mezcal’s for the first time as a Galentine day dinner and we had an incredible experience. The food was great . Fresh and hot. The drinks were perfect for a boomerang instagram Snapchat post lol I would definitely go back again. Fantastic customer service hosts and server were polite.

    Everything was awesome except for the food. It didn’t have much flavor and I am ordering enchiladas can only get chicken or veggie. I was really looking forward to a beef steak option.

    We had a really enjoyable experience! The food, and the service were really good. We never felt rushed, the food came out in a timely and smart manner, the drinks were excellent. The variety of food and drinks made it so everyone could choose great options. The plates were well sized, very balanced with great seasoning. The drinks were excellent. It’s not a noisy place , great for conversation with friends, if I want to be super picky, the music could’ve been slightly quieter. I’ll definitely be coming here again!

    First time eating here. Excellent food, very fast service. Food came out of kitchen very quickly. Our waiter was very friendly and seemed to sincerely care about our experience. Atmosphere was great. We ordered fish, shrimp and veggie tacos and they were all excellent. Potsticker appetizer was great. Price range of menu items and drinks was reasonable. Good size of menu offerings. I honestly can only say positive things about this restaurant.

    Pretty good food. A little pricey, and their menu lacks some common Mexican dishes. But what they do offer is delicious! Service is great and fast. Will be back!

    Pros: Beautiful new restaurant, loved the live music and ability to dance, the food was very good. Overall, the restaurant is very mindful of it's decorations and food. I would try it again because I enjoyed our food and the live music. Cons: Terrible service and high prices. Our waitress didn't check on us much, so it was very slow to order food, forgot to bring the chips and salsa we ordered and never returned to our table to take a family picture as we requested of her. Normally, I am understanding if the restaurant is short of staff, but I witnessed several other waitresses/ers, so I know she wasn't the only server and all of the other servers seemed very present. Sometimes I think when 20% gratuity is included this is the type of service that you receive. Also, the prices were pretty high, but the portion sizes were very good. A side of beans and rice was $8 and to me that is high.

    We love Mexican food and drinks and Mezcal did not disappoint. We started with the premium margarita which was excellent and came in a pretty big margarita glass, garnished with a beautiful flower. We each ordered the Mezcal soup and it was very tasty. I had the birria tacos. Best I’ve ever had. Spicy, crunchy and full of melted cheese and tender beef. The consommé was so good that we put it on everything. Husband had the trio fajitas and they did not skimp on meat or flavor. Our waitress was very engaging and helpful with recommendations. She really seemed to love working at Mezcal. It wasn’t super crowded at 6:30. We had a reservation and we were taken to our seats right away. We were brought waters immediately and then our waitress showed up to take our drink orders and ask if we had any questions. Service was excellent. The restaurant was really pretty, too. We had a wonderful time here and I can’t say enough nice things. I hope it stays on Open Table so we can keep coming back!

    Nachos were served with fake cheese that tasted like cheese-whiz and the overpriced tacos and salad were so bland. Nothing like real Mexican food and not worth the price

    Food is much better at the Ferndale location. The decor and ambience are lovely, but the nose level was unacceptable. I would come back perhaps and sit at the bar and have drinks and appetizers.

    This is my second time coming and I like the place and the waitstaff is friendly. Margaritas are good I like mine a little stronger, the Birria tacos are good, I wish the chips and salsa were free like Mexican village restaurants and I wish they would salt them a little bit there different but pretty good, the steak and potatoes dish with bacon wrapped pepper was cooked perfectly but I gave it a 4 star because it wasn’t seasoned, you have to season steak don’t be afraid of a little kosher salt and pepper.

    Went for my birthday. No special options if you are there for your birthday. Food was great but service was limited. It would have been nice to have more beverages and water refilled and checked in on after food was served.
