I want to plot two surfaces using Plot3D with a different mesh option, "None" for the first surface and "Full" for the second one, something like this

Plot3D[{x^2 + y^2, x + y}, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, None}, Mesh->{Full,None}]

But it does not work, the Mesh option fails.

You can create separate plots with desired mesh options and combine them with Show:

 MapThread[Plot3D[#, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, PlotStyle -> #2, Mesh -> #3] &, 
   {{x^2 + y^2, x + y}, {Red, None}, {Full, None}}], 
 PlotRange -> All]
