My girlfriend and I recently visited this restuarant and were pleasantly surprised. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure that our stay was enjoyable. The spicy pineapple margarita was unique...fruity and refreshing upfront and spicy on the back end. The salmon was spicy, tender and flavorful. We also enjoyed the vanilla flan.

Was a little hesitant after reading some negative reviews, but to the contrary of those, we had very attentive, friendly service. My boyfriend and I shared the goat cheese queso fundido appetizer, which was delicious. My pork tenderloin was, appropriately, very tender and had delicious flavor, and the sweet potato tamale was better than expected. My boyfriend's ribeye was very good as well, with an excellent chipotle sauce. Cactus pear margarita was great as well. Yes it's pricey, but it's worth it for an occassional dinner. Nice atmosphere (though don't go expecting to be able to have a private, romantic date - it's a little loud). Also, I'd read reviews saying the portions were small, but we found the complete opposite - my pork tenderloin was enormous, and the goat cheese fundido was more than enough for two. Overall, a very good experience.

My wife and I ate at Mesa for the first time this Monday. We both thought it was very good. We shared the goat cheese Fundido which was great, and the raw tuna nachos were superb. A pile of raw tuna chunks in what tasted like a Cilantro sauce. I had the spiced Pork Tenderloin which was just spicy enough so you could still enojoy the taste. My wife had the Chile Rellano and loved it. As with all of Bobby Flays places a tad pricey, but a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

This is our favorite spot for brunch..The bread basket alone is worth the trip...The goat cheese fondue is to die for..Everything is absolutely delicious..The service is okay, nothing spectacular, but we love the atmosphere...Thumbs way up for brunch here...oh, and their Bloody Mary rocks!

I went last night for dinner for four. Two of us ordered from the restaruant week menu, and two of us ordered entrees and apps. I'm sure it was better when they first opened, but I was definitely not disappointed with our experience. We ordered the glazed salmon (a little on the dry side, but edible) - - maybe b/c it was the restaurant week menu. The strip steak and ribeye were very good though. And I'm not a big fan of flan, but I ate all of it. We saved $$ from not ordering a bottle of vino, so the value wasn't all that bad. Dinner for four (including 2 pre-fix dinners) came out to under $250 including tip. The service was excellent and friendly as well. A very good experience overall and I would go back again.

Well, it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. Just kind of mediocre everything. Luckily, I went for restaurant week, so it only cost $35 per person. Thank God! I don't think I would have been a happy camper if I payed full price for ANYTHING on the menu. I was extremely dissappointed with the appetizers, both of which we ordered, were kind of tasteless. The margarita's were just poor ... really poor. The entree was a bit better, but not much...I guess the only area in which the entree really "shined" was the sauces and infused oils that were used; However, I didn't feel that the sauces, or oils really emphasized anything to make the entree taste much better, they were simply just good on their own. I can say that the mashed potatoes were fabulous...but then again,who wants to pay that kind of money for mashed potatoes..? Desserts were solid, great taste and presentation. Pretty much the only thing that both of us were happy about. As far as service, it was the same...just so-so. I was actually expecting to have great service, and I guess my expectations were too high, perhaps. Our waitress made sure our glasses were full, and our table was cleaned before bringing the next course out, but that's about where it ended. I was sort of hoping that she would have a bit more personality, but no smile, no introducton of herself, no nothing really, just a warm body that functioned as a robot. The restaurant is decently decorated, but nothing too special. It could probably use some refreshing, but it wasn't terrible. As far as the value, all I can say is, again, I am glad I went during restaurant week, and got it totally out of my system. I would not go back to pay the prices on their regular menu...

I just went to Mesa Grill for Restaurant Week and the food was FANTASTIC! Sophie's Chopped Salad, the Chili Rellenos, and the chocolate pudding cake were wonderful. However, it was extremely noisy and hard to hear even the person next to me, and the service left much to be desired.
