My negative experience at Meson Madrid...... We arrived, just the two of us, and told there would be a 20 min wait - which was reasonable. However, after a while I noticed that people arriving after us were being seated, mostly groups of 3 and some of 4. I also noticed that that two of these groups of 3 were seated at tables recently vacated by couples. I asked the young woman who took our names when we first came in, how a group of 4 could be seated at a table just vacated by a couple how this could be and she said that she didn't see us. We are not idiots and a poor excuse like that is an insult. We did walk near the door (a bit out of view) to check our car, but she did manage to call out loudly to earlier diners to let them know their tables were ready - why not us. There is also a bench in that area for seating while waiting for one’s table to be ready. She had given an equally poor excuse earlier when I asked how a group of 3 (who arrived after us) was seated at a table were a couple has also been seated - she double-talked something about the manager using the computer to seat them. Nonsense! I don't know if the food is any good, but given the poor treatment we received, how can I risk the potential for another poor experience to find out.
I took my wife here for her birthday, along with the two kids. We had shrimp ajillo for our appetizer (2 orders had enough tasty shrimp for 4 people) , then settled into paella marinara with lobster (2 orders) and one order of paella valencia. The paella dishes were very tasty, loaded with nice seafood (clams, mussels, scallops, shrimp and lobster). The adults drank red sangria which was good. We took home a container of paella rice, as the portions here are very large. the prices are reasonable especially when one considers that the paella is too much for one person, so you don't have to order as much. 3 orders is enough for 4 people.
The restaurant was fairly busy, but the service was fast and friendly. It was a Thurday night. I have heard that sometimes they are too busy on Saturdays, but they handled the Thursday crowd well. The atmosphere was relaxing and pleasant.
Overall, we left with smiles on our faces, feeling quite well fed. I have been going to this restaurant for almost 20 years (I used to take dates here when single, Spanish restaurants come off as romantic to women), but hadn't been there recently as we have moved farther away. I am glad to see that it is still a fine place to eat.
I have been going to this restaurant for the past 10 years or so, and it has been steadily declining. Last dinner was literally uneatable. ALL the shellfish was not properly washed and was sandy. The waiter was incompetent and forgot to bring out half the appetizers we ordered for the first course. THEN he brought out the appetizers that he forgot with the main entres!!!! It was absolutley horrible I am never going back. As a matter of fact I never wrote a restaurant review online, but I just had to this time to tell people how low this once good restaurant has fallen. Food- F. Service- F.
