What Our Guests Are Saying

“Please extend our deepest gratitude and appreciation for a fabulous evening!! I don’t have enough words to express how wonderful everything was. The food was beyond delicious and there was so much! The service was impeccable! We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Max greeted me right away and went through the plan for the evening. He was so professional. Everyone extended themselves to ensure all went without a hitch.
My sincerest appreciation and thank you to you and the whole staff.”



“We were so happy with my daughter’s wedding reception at Meson Sabika! The venue was romantic and elegant! We served appetizers and Tapas for dinner. More than enough food. The room was definitely large enough for a 7 piece band (200 guest) in the middle of the room on the dance floor.. We were told from friends who had a wedding there that you needed to put the band in the corner. The staff knows what they are doing, and all our guests have been raving about the room, outdoor area and food!”



“I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for your assistance in making our Bridal Shower on February 23 such a wonderful day. Jennie was very pleased and delighted with our experience.  Our servers Alex and Max were very attentive to us and our guests. Any requests were followed up quickly and this was so appreciated. They both kept the drinks flowing just as we asked.

You were very prompt and attentive to all our requests.  It was amazing to walk in and see all of the set up of the tables and side tables as well. We had thought that we would have to put finishing touches on the tables and you had everything placed so nicely. Adding the hydrangea /iris florals and decorations were our only tasks to do. You put so much attention to detail on the seating cards and raised topper for the recipe table. So many of our guests were so complimentary about the setting of the room and the whole aura. The final finish was the delicious food our guests raved about! You steered us in the right direction since the luncheon favorites we chose were a culinary delight.”

Sincerely,  Susan


“I just wanted to thank you and the crew for a great 80th birthday event for my dad! Good times were had by all, the service was impeccable, and the food was outstanding. Many people commented on both the food and the beautiful venue…Meson Sabika is a true gem! I was amazed at how well the staff handled so many simultaneous big parties and events, not just ours, but of course the wedding outside, the guests on the patio and throughout the restaurant – all without missing a beat. The capacity and volume of the restaurant is at a whole different level that which was in place when I was working here in the early 90’s! What a well-oiled machine! And, Nick, as our event manager/point-person, we really appreciated how responsive and helpful you were in the month leading up to this event! Thank you!!”



Everyone had a very nice time. The food and service were great! A big thank you to you for making this happen as quickly and effortlessly as you did. You understood the pressure on my end to this a wonderful experience for our CEO and team – and it was!



“I wanted to say thank you for being so accommodating regarding my mother-in-law’s birthday celebration. It was really nice as we had relatives in from Toronto and friends back in from Memphis. So not only was it a birthday celebration but also a reunion (my husband and myself were back in from Texas too). As usual food was great and a big thanks to our server, Georgin! He did a great job dealing with us all, suggesting the quantity of dishes for the mix of vegetarian and non vegetarian across the table. We had a lovely memorable evening. This is a very special place for us.  I even came to Meson while in labor with my youngest child twenty something years ago (though had to give up ordering another round of tapas as contractions grew stronger, so I could go home and get a bit of sleep before going to the hospital during the night). Needless to say, Meson Sabika is our favorite restaurant!”



“I just wanted to let you all know how THANKFUL and grateful I am for your entire team. Our night was completely FLAWLESS and we had such an amazing time. Everyone at Meson Sabika was great from start to finish, even with my 100s of emails. I can’t even think of ONE thing I could recommend to improve on because it was amazing. Thank you all so much for making our wedding great!”

– Beth & Anthony

It was amazing! Thank you for a wonderful event and a special thanks to Patrick for taking such good care of us. He was wonderful with all of my crazy family and even put up with them fighting over the bill at the last minute! Everyone complimented the food and it was exactly what I was hoping for to celebrate my milestone.

– DJ

Meson Sabika, I just wanted to thank you for Amanda & John’s beautiful wedding. Anca was a godsend and very attentive to our needs. She even helped me with flowers! The owner stopped by to make sure everything was fine – which was appreciated! You and your staff do an exceptional job from start to finish and take personal interest that the day goes smoothly! Everyone was raving about the food and gorgeous grounds and pavilion. The weather even cooperated and the day was perfect! I feel truly blessed.

– Rosemarie

Dear Hossein:

Thank you for supporting the Naperville Jaycees and the 41st annual Distinguished Service Awards. We simply treasure this event and every year is remarkable and memorable. Our ever on May 2nd was no exception. The Distinguished Service Awards are the Naperville Jaycees’ gift to the community and a proud tradition we are honored to be able to continue. The reason we are able to do that is by partnering with generous sponsors and supporters like you. Thank you for believing in the value of this event. Your team is outstanding. Your food is amazing. We simply love having this event at Meson Sabika! The surprise hors d’oeuvres we received were an unexpected and generous gift! Thank you again for your kind spirit and philanthropy. We are so pleased to work with you in service to our community!

– Miranda Barfuss & Laura Duffecy

5 MILLIONS stars over and over! From the start, Meson Sabika blew us away. For starters, the venue is so unique. The staff went above and beyond answering emails and phone calls at any hour of the day (and the occasional 11pm email). We planned our wedding from a distance but Katie and Nick made it SO easy it was as if we were there. Oh my gosh – don’t even get me started on the food! AH-mazing! Our guests continue to rave about their dishes!

Then the day of was flawless…minus the sideways hail storm which occurred at 2pm…right as we were supposed to d our first look at Meson Sabika. I will never forget Katie telling me it was too late to rearrange the reception hall and that we would move the ceremony to the dance floor. I remember the tears welling up and me shaking my head “no”. In that moment, Katie was my friend and not just staff. Before I could say anything she said to not worry and that the staff would make it work so we could have the ceremony inside by the beautiful windows instead of the dance floor. THEY ARE AMAZING! The rain blew through, the sun came out for cocktail hour, and no one even noticed the staff as they transitioned the floor, yet again, for the reception. I cannot say enough about Meson Sabika. Booking with them ensures that you will have the most perfect day. Thank you for everything!!!

– Michelle & Andy

These last few days have been filled with so much joy and love as we look back at pictures and talk with guests who were at our wedding. Truly, we cannot thank you enough. Thank you for answering every email throughout this year, even the late night random questions about the greenery lol! You all are an amazing team to have as we planned our wedding. Speaking of planning, I cannot believe we went through EVERY ceremony plan that you all had discussed with us from that very first day. However, in every step you all were calm and confident that it would be beautiful and all work out. I can’t tell you enough how much that meant to us on our wedding day. Thank you for resetting the entire reception for us to have the ceremony in front of the windows. Everyone commented how they loved the backdrop of the windows. Looking at pictures, my heart is so full. It was beautiful!
Again, thank you for going ABOVE AND BEYOND for us all year. We will be back whenever we are in town! Meson Sabika will forever have a special place in our hearts.
– Andy & Michelle

It was an unforgettable evening for us! This was a major event not only for my immediate family but also my extended one. We were all impressed with the food and the service. Our main servers were extraordinary and kept on checking with me throughout the afternoon. They deserve lots of praise. Meson Sabika’s food is what brought us to you. The quality and taste of the food are what has made you very successful as a restaurant. We could not select any place but yours in all of Chicago to have this very special celebration…everyone that came fell in love with the place and bowed to comeback on their own. We will always be your customers and now that my son will comeback to Naperville I am sure he will be a frequent guest. Thank you for your service and food. It was excellent!

The dinner last night was a success!! Our team LOVED the food and the service was excellent (and I know good service!). Thanks again, Meson Sabika, for everything and we hope to have another event with you soon – preferably when it’s warmer so we can enjoy the patio!
– Janessa

We returned home from our bridal shower with the biggest smiles on our faces and the best feeling. The food and the service were absolutely wonderful!! Perfectly planned and served. We wanted for nothing and were treated with absolute care and attention to every detail. It was truly a thrill to be able to give our niece such a beautiful shower and actually relax and enjoy everything along with all our guests.

Thank you, Events Department, for working with me and answering every question quickly and professionally. I will be telling anyone I know who is looking for an event venue about our perfect day at Meson Sabika. Thank you again!

– Mary

From the moment we got engaged and decided to have our wedding in my hometown of Naperville, I immediately knew I wanted to have my reception at Meson Sabika. It is such a gorgeous venue and the entire staff is amazing. We started out working with primarily with Julie Bell who was fantastic; but let the position well in advance of our date. From there I worked closely with Katelyn Smith, Katie Williams, and Nick Vera, who all manage wedding/events and the transition was so seamless. They are all experts at what they do and know how to make your dream wedding into reality. During our final detail appointment they asked me so many questions I hadn’t even though of and truly helped make our wedding into the BEST DAY EVER. I have so many good things to say about everyone we worked with at Meson Sabika. I sent hundreds of emails in the course of our planning process and I got a quick response back every time. We had a budget and decided to have our wedding during off season to help with some of the cost. There is a minimum and everyone worked with us to stay as close to that as as close to our budget as possible by offering tons of different options. Thank you so much, Meson Sabika, for helping us having the perfect wedding day! Katelyn, Katie and Nick – you are all amazing! Thank you so much for everything! You helped transform our wedding dreams into a reality that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
– Brittany & Josh

Thank you so much for everything. We had the best time and definitely will plan another dinner at your restaurant again. The service and food and the room was perfect. We couldn’t be more happy with the experience. Mahalo!

I would like to thank you, along with Katie and Kaitlyn, very much!  Mary’s 50th Birthday celebration this past Sunday was outstanding!  The planning you assisted with, the layout of the room, and the service on Sunday was excellent! I very much appreciate the extra effort you took in making this a memorable and special day for Mary and her family and friends!  And also, I very much appreciate the extra time you spent with me to ensure I understood all of the details.

Thank you again and I’m sure we will see you guys for a special dinner sometime.
Ryan And Amy

Overall, we had a great experience with you and your fellow staff. We greatly appreciated the organization and peace of mind leading up to the day knowing that we didn’t have to worry about anything. We especially appreciated the help of Anca as she made sure the night ran smoothly and addressed our concerns as they came up.

Food/Service: The food was great. I heard nothing but good things from many of our guests. For some, it was their first tapas experience. We even had one guest that loved the Jamón Serrano so much that he made a bulk order of Manchego cheese so that he could make some himself the very next day. The service, from our perspective, was very efficient. The timing of the different plates was seamless. The bar, also, never seemed to have too long of a line.

Planning: During the wedding planning process, the events team was very prompt and thorough in their responses which was very much appreciative.

Table settings/Decor/Etc.: Everything looked awesome. Thank you for taking the time to set everything up.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day truly amazing.





Just wanted to say a quick thank you for our wonderful event on Friday night.  The venue was perfect, the food was outstanding, the service was exceptional, and our group had a really great evening.  Meson Sabika is first class all the way and we will remember that celebration forever.  Thanks for all your efforts to make our evening so enjoyable!


I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful day we had in your outdoor dining area for my daughter Kelly’s birthday. Your staff was so efficient and kind and the food was just outstanding! All of my guests expressed appreciation for the lovely venue and really enjoyed the day. The staff graciously moved umbrellas for us so no one was sitting in the sun, and everything we ask about was taken care of with a smile. But the most important thing was that Kelly loved it! She was delighted to sit with her friends and family at her favorite Naperville restaurant and enjoy her day. The next time I am in Naperville I will certainly visit again.



Thank you and the terrific staff. Everything was great!



Words cannot explain how amazing, beautiful and perfect our wedding was at Mesón Sabika. We got married in August on the front yard and it was stunning! We keep hearing how special our wedding was and how spectacular the venue was. And the food…it was outstanding. Mesón Sabika gained many more new patrons just from the new people that we introduced to this wonderful restaurant. Katie and Nick were very helpful and the day of, were fantastic. We honestly could not say enough about our wedding [here]. It was everything we could have ever dreamt of and more. the chandeliers light up the Pavilion so perfectly. The ground of Mesón Sabika are so perfect for photograph also. there are so many options with all the beautiful backdrops in and around Mesón Sabika. Thank you for making our wedding dreams come true! We can’t wait to go back for years to come!



Thank you for being so wonderful! And, here’s a direct quote from one of my attending managers, “Last night the service was excellent and the food and drinks were really good. Our clients were having such a good time that they wouldn’t leave!”



We received a lot of compliments from our guests. They said our wedding was spectacular. Everyone loved every detail, from the food, the service, and of course, we heard many comments about the beautiful gardens and the rooms in the mansion. The place is so unique and beautiful that the photographer could take very romantic pictures. Don’t hesitate a minute, Mesón Sabika is the perfect place to host your wedding.


I just wanted to thank you sooo much for a wonderful bridal shower!! Everything ran so smoothly, and the two waiters in our room were wonderful!!! They were so nice, and did such an excellent job!! Also, the food was delicious. Thank you for such an incredible day!! I will recommend Meson Sabika to anybody I know who is looking for a venue for a party!! Thank you so much.


Everything went very well! The food and service were great. We felt very appreciated.


Everything associated with the gala from Mesón Sabika was terrific; from the first meeting, through the planning phase and culminating in excellent execution. The room looked amazing, the staff was wonderful and the food delicious. We definitely appreciate all of the cost waivers and menu price reductions that helped maximize the amount of money Riverwalk was able to fundraiser during the gala. We highly recommend Mesón Sabika for any event and will continue to personally patronize the restaurant in the future.


This is the most amazing wedding venue! Katie and Nick were beyond amazing and helpful through out planning. ALL of our guests said this was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding! But we knew that because Meson Sabika has amazing food! We planned an outdoor ceremony but due to rain,we were moved inside. The staff did an incredible job at flipping the room from ceremony to reception in minutes. Thank you again Mesón Sabika for making Oct. 5th the most memorable day ever!



We had a great evening and a wonderful dinner! The service staff did an exceptional job in keeping us well fed and ensuring that we had everything we needed. I appreciate the hard work and efforts put forth by everyone at Mesón Sabika who helped make our dinner such a huge success. We will be back in the near future.


I wanted to say thank you for working with us to make this a great event for our guests. The patio location is beautiful and fives us plenty of space for the dogs. Everyone loved the food and the sangria. The servers were very kind and attentive to our guests and to me. I was very impressed with how efficient they were with the food courses and the beautiful presentation. Thank you.



The event was wonderful! Alejandro and Andres did a wonderful job making sure the guests had beverages, felt welcomed, and kept things running smoothly. The bride-to-be was extremely complimentary of the food and loved her special day. Thanks for everything! I will be sure to recommend Mesón Sabika to everyone for their events. THANK YOU!!!



We hope all is well with you!!!! We just wanted to thank you so much for everything you did for us/all your help through our entire wedding process! You were AMAZING!!! You really took a ton of stress out of the wedding planning process. And thank you for always giving us your honest opinion with all the food recommendations. People are still raving about the various food selections!!! We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding day so memorable!!! You are the best.

Carrie & Nick


Gorgeous spot for a ceremony!!! It had rained all morning, but it didn’t matter!!! The pictures were amazing and we couldn’t have been happier with how it all went. We wholeheartedly recommend it!!!!


Thanks to you and the waiter Diego for making the evening so great. It was truly wonderful. You made everything so easy. Diego provided great food service. The food was excellent. We have only heard raves from all of our friends. Their only complaint: the food was so good that they ate too much. We are very appreciative of all you and staff did for us.

I want to thank you, Nick and everyone who helped us. We really enjoyed our experience and the food was delicious. I would not think of other places to hold our next event. Again, thank you. We really appreciate it.

We loved our lunch at Meson Sabika. Thank you for hosting and I hope we can plan a return visit in the future, thank you for your part in our wonderful afternoon.

Thank you for a wonderful luncheon. We had a lovely afternoon, I appreciate the work you did to organize the event, the wait staff was very efficient and friendly, food was awesome…thank you for the great menu and dessert options, great time was had by all at your beautiful restaurant.

Max and Jasmine were great, the food was phenomenal and Hossein was as generous as ever. [ . . . ] We appreciate Meson Sabika taking such great care of us!!!!

It was a pleasure working with you. You were very accommodating. My daughter was extremely happy with the event and was very happy with the food that was served. My daughter was extremely happy with the event and was very happy with the food that was served. I too agree that the food was very good and was pleased. The servers did a great job at handling my requests which was much appreciated. So, all in all, I was very happy.

Thanks for an excellent service last night. Food, as usual, was excellent.

We had a dream to build memories! The time was a place out of time. It’s what Meson Sabika does best!!! Thank you.


The evening was great! Everyone loved the food and the experience. Thank you for your help coordinating!

Thank you so much Nick, everything was wonderful as usual. We celebrated my bridal shower at Meson Sabika back in 2008, our daughter’s one month back in 2013, and now our son’s one month celebration this past Saturday. It is truly becoming a family tradition.

We had a really great time and thank you to you and your team for your organization. The food was really great. I will certainly recommend my husband organize an evening with you the next time his team is in town.

Perfect place to host my ceremony and reception! The staff was wonderful through the entire process! Great food! One of the reasons we selected the venue was because of the food!

I have received so many compliments about the wedding reception being “perfect” (and I agree!) I really can’t recommend changing or improving anything. To Katie (you are simply the best, from the first meeting until the hug you gave me on the patio in my bridal gown), Nick (made me feel comfortable asking any question and super quick with responses), our event captain (her smile and calm were infectious as I juggled guests and photography demands), every chef, waiter and support staff, thank you for making the start of our life together amazing!

PS my brothers in law who did the flowers and my photographer Pam were very complimentary about how well you accommodated them. Thank you again!


As usual, we had yet another wonderful experience here. Tried some different items this time and needless to say, it was outstanding! If you haven’t been here I highly recommend going here, especially during the nice weather months. Sitting outside is where you want to be!


My family and I were there for my 1 year wedding anniversary. It was great. Sat outside. Weather was beautiful. Food was good and our waitress was great! Brought a champagne toast to end the evening. Loved it ! Love when the service goes above and beyond for you. This was our third time and it was the best yet.


Favorite restaurant for outdoor dining in the western burbs. Each tapas course we selected was outstanding. Perfect ambiance. Cannot recommend highly enough!


Everything on the menu is fantastic. There is an intense fear of missing out when you order. Should I order another serving of what I just had or try something new? Every dish is better than the next. The wine list is also excellent, full of great Spanish wines to explore.


We went for Mother’s Day brunch and everything was amazing! The food, the service, the whole experience, etc.


We had the most lovely server. She was pleasant, attentive, and .excelled at her job! Our group of seven women had a delicious, relaxing lunch in a lovely setting!


Meson Sabika truly is a Naperville gem! The food is outstanding and ever so creative. Served with beautiful presentation and geared to the number of people in your party. Our server Diego, was fantastic and took the time to explain the history of Meson Sabika and also to explain tapas to our Aunt as it was her first experience with tapas and first time to Meson Sabika. Diego provided us with excellent service and didn’t rush us in any way. He was outstanding!


We had a wonderful anniversary dinner and our server, Eddie made our night fabulous.


Meson was amazing always a great place to go for a special occasion. The service was great and the hostess was very friendly. All the food and drink was great as well.


I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how happy we were with our wedding at Mesón Sabika last weekend.

Everything was beautifully arranged, the food was delicious, and the staff was courteous and very attentive. We were a little off with our timing and it seemed as if that was taken care of without needing to discuss with anyone there. Mesón Sabika is such a beautiful location for a wedding! [ . . . ] Lastly, thank you and the other coordinators for all your pre-wedding planning. I appreciated the meetings we had ahead of the wedding. We felt like we knew exactly what to expect. [ . . . ] Thank you to everyone at Mesón Sabika for the effort to make our day as special as it was.

Kind regards,

Dawn & Tim

This is my third time at Mesón. I’ve tried a variety of the tapas and they are excellent. Since I have celiac disease I’ve always ordered the gluten free tapas and they are delicious and I haven’t had any cross contamination issues.

Mesón Sabika is one of our favorite places to dine in the Naperville area. Their ambiance and outdoor seating cant be beat. Service is always top notch and for vegetarian options, they top the list for new and innovative plates to try for lunch or dinner. Sangria is GREAT and wine selection is fantastic! If you are a meat or fish eater, you will also love this place! Great for date night or large groups.

We cannot thank you enough for making our day so memorable!  Everything was perfect!  I will definitely be recommending Mesón Sabika to others to host events!  And a big thank you to you since you were the one coordinating our wedding!
