  • Mastication Monologues on Aug 13, 2013

    It is probably one of the most authentic taperias I have been to so far stateside, but the ambiance alone will make you fall in love with this charming eatery.

    Last time I started out talking about the overall nature of the tapas restaurant Meson Sabika, and what exactly tapas are to the world foodie community. Now, I can finally...

  • magee-junk reviewI've been to this restaurant several times -- generally with people who urge me to go with them because it's `sooo good`.My opinion? I think it's very mediocre. The portions are small, the recipes are ambitious but not that well prepared, on the whole, and the service is very hit-or-miss.I haven't been there for a year and have no intention to go back.

  • davedavis reviewOur experience was very good, and the food was excellent. However, we have some observations about some of the tapas dishes. The lobster tapas was skimpy, and over-cooked. Very poor value for the dollar. The filet was delicious, but the spanish ham was tough and inedible. The value for the dollar on the tapas dishes could be better.

  • davedavis reviewOver the years I have found that this restaurant is consistant with food, drinks and service. I for those who are unfamiliar with Spanish dining this is a great way to start. Tapas are small pass around dishes that might average $7.00 each. 4-6 Tapas will be quite adequate for a couple. The variety is amazing.The prices are great for couples on a budget to those who are not!

  • morgancarol reviewEmilio's is as good as going to Spain! I have been to both Spain and Emilio's and Emilio's is as good as in Spain, maybe better! Food is authentic and delicious. Garlic potato salad is to die for! Every dish is excellent!! Service is great and location is wonderful!

  • ChefMozI was a semi regular customer, used their catering service, hosted a party there, and dined several time a year, however, after the service, or lack there of last night I will NEVER go back. Don't get me wrong, sometimes the staff has an off night, I don't consider that a deal breaker, but when the manager is rude and snide, they have lost a loyal customer.

  • ChefMozI loved my experiences with Mason Sabika. I have been there on 3 different occasions, all personal. I have a favorite server who is very knowledgable about the food and recommeds her favorites when asked. She even sent us a thank you note and she congratulated us on our anniversary. How many servers have sent you a hand written thank you note for a party of only two? It is worth the wait (if any when you make a reservation) and the atmosphere is divine. Window seats are great as well as the tables in the middle of the rooms. It does get a little noisey at times, but it is still easy to have quaint conversation while others are in the same room with you. I would recommed this restaurant to anyone who loves to experience a little something out of the ordianry in the burbs. Go with an open mind and an empty stomach. District 203 loves Meson Sebika, that is how I learned of this gem in Naperville.P.S. Thanks Patti for a job well done!!

  • ChefMozTapas restaurants, in general, end up costing alot for a little. This one is no exception, but...oooh the Sangria is good. The atmosphere, especially outside in the summer, is priceless, and those bacon wrapped dates! Don't bother with the Paella. In fact, dont bother with Paella unless you are in Barcelona. Stick with the tapas and prepare for a large bill unless you dont like Sangria or dates...its worth it. This is one of my favorite places to go with a group of friends and dine all night.

  • ChefMozI love tapas restaurants...I'm a grazer, so I could live on little bites of this and that. When I first discovered Tapas restaurants I thought they were made just for me. I went to this particular restaurant for sentimental reasons. I had gone there for my senior prom dinner when it was the Willoway Manor, and I was out on a date with the guy I had gone to prom with 20 some-odd years earlier. The fact that it was a tapas resaurant was just an added bonus.The tapas were wonderful, but I have to agree with the Digital City reviewer that the paella left a lot to be desired; fish was overcooked and the rice was dry. It looked and tasted like it had been sitting under the heat lamp for quite a while.

    55555 by Eric V.

  • Mary B.This is a NO GO. While the food is amazing, the service is unprofessional and unseasoned. You will be rushed out an hour before closing; expect the check to be dropped off while you are still eating.
