Mesa Grill Review

Playful splashes of bright green, blue, red, and yellow offset the swanky curved banquettes and earth tones at Iron Chef and grill-meister Bobby Flay's first restaurant outside New York City. The menu's decidedly Southwestern, but with plenty of contemporary twists. Options might include a starter of barbecued duck with habanero chile–star anise sauce over blue-corn pancakes, and main dishes like mango-and-spice-encrusted tuna steak with green peppercorn and green chile sauce or ancho-chile honey-glazed salmon with spicy black-bean sauce and roasted jalapeño crema. Some tables have views of the casino sports book. There's also an impressive weekend brunch.

    Above and Beyond what We Expected

    Although my entire family are fans of Bobby Flay, I must admit that we were anticipating just above average Contemporary Southwestern cuisine. We were delighted to discover boldly seasoned proteins, innovative twists on classic Mexican recipes, and very attentive waitstaff who were remarkably knowledgeable about not just the appetizers, entrees and desserts, but also the selection of liquors and mixed drinks available. We remain die-heard Bobby Flay fans and look forward to many more return visits to Mesa Grill.

    Needed a Fire Extinguisher

    Now I know why some celerity chefs are successful! Just over season and add so much heat you can't taste the food. We dined at MEsa lasy night for Mother's Day. What a mistake. Our food was so over seasoned we litterally could not taste a thing. Dining should be enjoyable. Our meal last night was an ordeal in survival. Only bright spot was the bartender. He was awesome. in closing, Mesa is as over rated as Emeril's at the MGM grand. Don't waste your money!

    Just OK

    My husband and I dined at Mesa Grill with two other couples. We received less-than-stellar service from the waitstaff (perhaps because we're rather young???)Our entire party was dressed up. We were seated in the back corner of the restaurant behind a curtain. We had to ask for a wine list, while the other tables around us were given one upon begin seated. When I ordered my entree (the Chile Relleno - a large chile stuffed with chevre), the server condescendingly asked if I had eaten chevre before. We had an appetizer - I believe it was the BBQ duck crepe? It was fine. The entrees were passable - nothing to write home about. My chile itself was delicious but the mushroom sauce tasted like straight-up vinegar. Not the worst meal ever, but not the best. I probably would have had more to say about the ambiance if we weren't seated behind a curtain!

    Great Lunch

    Went with our teenagers for lunch and really enjoyed our choices. They are not afraid spice up the dishes. Service was a bit slow. But overall, we would go back.

    Mesa Grill Review

    I enjoy watching Bobby Flay on TV and was excited to eat at Mesa. Appetizer (chix tacos) was good, and side item (tamales) was very good. HOWEVER.....main course, pork tenderloin ("signature dish") was not fully cooked. You would think a fancy restaurant would understand raw pork is not safe. Service was also very slow.

    below average lunch

    We went to lunch on a weekday at mesa grill. We had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. Our Waiter was friendly and answered any questions we had about drinks and appitizers. We shared the blue corn bbq duck pancakes, which were just ok. I ordered a pork tenderloin sandwich with no mayo. My wife's food arrived and mine did not. They had forgotten to make my sandwich. We could see my fries sitting on the counter getting cold from our table. When they finally did bring my food my fries were cold and they put mayo on my sandwich. The waiter didnt say anything about the delay. We had looked forward to eating here and ended up really disappointed.
