I'll be staying at the Hilton in Costa Mesa mid-week, without a car, and noticed that Mesa is within easy walking distance of the hotel. As a solo woman with work to do at my table, will I feel comfortable eating there, probably after happy hour, and will I need a reservation?
I've read the negative reports on the food and the mood, but it stil looks like a better bet than the Hilton hotel restaurant (correct me if I'm wrong!).
If anyone has a better suggestion than Mesa, I'm up for it (although I don't want steak or burgers). I won't have a car, and don't really feel like investing in a taxi.
