Mesa appeals to a chic 21+ crowd with bold small-plate cuisine and creative cocktails in a contemporary lounge setting. Mesa brings LA to OC with its unique architectural design, retractible roof, living wall, local art displays and movies that are projected onto the walls. Located in the Camp shopping center of Costa Mesa, Mesa is an oasis that enthusiastically serves up craft cocktails and designer bites effortlessly. When not lost in the admiration of the cuisine, get involved in the almost nightly music scene. Go ahead, we invite you to sit (or dance) and stay a while.
Some of Mesa’s delightful small plates and menu items include Fried Olives, Chef Style Mussels, Cauliflower Mac n’ Cheese, Burgers and Wood Oven Pizzas. Executive Chef Niki Starr Welyler is the brains behind the execution and innovation. Having a special occasion?
