A word from Mesa Grill - Caesars Palace Las Vegas
Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay’s only Las Vegas restaurant is Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace, delivering his iconic bold Southwestern flair from his acclaimed New York flagship. Just as striking as the food at Mesa Grill is the atmosphere. Designed by renowned restaurant designer David Rockwell, the open space at this Las Vegas restaurant features rich and vibrant colors and textures that are reminiscent of the American Southwest. On the brunch, lunch and dinner menus at his Caesars Palace restaurant, Chef Bobby Flay presents tongue-tingling dishes. This Las Vegas restaurant’s proximity to Mexico gives Mesa Grill access to some of that country's highest-quality tequila and mezcal offerings, and the expansive wine list has a global reach yet maintains an emphasis on top American wines. A cocktail menu features signature drinks such as the Mesa Pisco Sour and Bitter Frenchie and, of course, the perfectly mixed Mesa Grill Margarita.

    Food was bland, margaritas were completely ordinary, and service was rushed; it was so uncomfortable. The waitstaff asked us which wine we had ordered to reconstruct the bill (two different people handled the wine service) that I guess had been incomplete. I don't really know what happened with that, but suddenly our server was at our table asking what we were drinking. We each had one marg and one glass of wine, and there were only two of us, so how did they not know? I was so embarrassed for having chosen where to dine that night. I thought a Bobby Flay place would be awesome but it was uncomfortable and the food just was not good.

    We went in before seeing KA at the MGM Grand and had the best meal of our Las Vegas vacation. We were sat promptly at our reservation time and allowed to bring in drinks we had received on the casino floor. Our table for two felt very private and our waiter was attentive without constantly interrupting us. The lighting was perfect for us and the noise level was low enough to maintain a normal conversation. The food (lamb & Pork main dishes) was incredible and neither of us could stop until it was gone. Well worth the time and money.

    We went to lunch at the restaurant. Looking for a foodie experiance. We ordered Duck and Tuna appetizers. The duck was a good bite but very over sauced. Tuna Tatar was fabulous. A 50% reduction of expectations. The waiter recommended the salmon club and Yucatan chicken. The chicken came raw in the middle and the salmon was so overly smoked by the restaurant that we could only take one bite. The manager did not come over to the table but he did take off the price of the salmon (not the chicken). What A Total Disappointment. With so many other options in Vegas, run to the others.

    This is the second time I have had brunch here - and will definitely come back for brunch again next time I am in town!. Service was exemplary - loved how everyone greeted us as we came in. Our server was really helpful with feedback (as we were torn between a few menu choices). And needless to say - the Margaritas are spectacular!

    My fiance and I dined here on a Sunday night at 8pm. The restaurant is beautiful and the ambiance was perfect for a special date night. We had the Roasted Corn Soup which was very creamy and flavorful - a must try - and a spicy Tomato Salad which was very good. For our entrees, I had the Coffee Rubbed Filet Mignon w/ mushrooms and ancho chile sauce. It was a good size, cooked perfectly, a bit spicy, and incredibly delicious. My fiance had the Mango + Spice Crusted Tuna Steak over a bed of toasted pine nut cous cous. It was melted in your mouth amazing. The best tuna steak he's ever had and he's very picky. We were too stuffed for dessert. We each had a glass of wine and our bill was $216. Service was outstanding! Loved it!

    Our server was superb, he's been with Mesa Grill for years - he even goes there on his free time. He suggested the tamale shrimp appetizer and he didn't disappoint. Best tuna steak I've ever head - the quality was excellent. My husband had the spicy pork which he also enjoyed. I'm just disappointed I was too full for the dessert! Can't wait to go back the next time I'm in Vegas

    Ate our Anniversary dinner here. Had a great experience. The waiter was funny, professional and witty. The food was excellent. I had the coffee crusted filet mignon which was perfectly made to my desire. Wife had the grilled chicken that came with a spicy tangy sauce. That was delicious as well. Our dinner reservations were at 7. Walked in and we were immediately seated. We had a great experience and would love to come back again.

    It has been a few years since we went to Mesa Grill. We probably will not return again. The service was slow. The shrimp appetizer was horrible. The burrata tomato salad was drowning in a vinegar dressing. The veal chop was mostly fat. When you wait 20 minutes for your main course and the other guests are eating their long awaited for meal you aren't likely to ask for a new meal. Two of us had a tough over done lobster dinner that was horrible. Really what has happened to the quality meals at Mesa Grill?

    Mesa Grill in Caesar's will keep you coming back for more. The special southwest flair and dining experience was unique and satisfying. The staff on hand were the best and our waiter even shook our hands as we parted the restaurant. A must would be to get the chocolate cake dessert at the end to share. Heaven on earth. Would definitely be back for more.

    My husband and I had shied away from the celebrity restaurants until 3 years ago when we decided we'd give Mesa Grill a try - mainly because I had one of the Flay BBQ cookbooks and we liked everything we made. Well - Mesa Grill is now the first reservation - even before the hotel - that we make when we are planning a trip to Vegas! We often plan on going to another restaurant the 2nd night, but end up back there for round two. The food is simply incredible. Every single visit we try something new and we are always delighted. The staff is exemplary and they seem to have low to no turnover as we see the same faces each time. I have never had a single appetizer or meal that has been less than perfect. Kudos to the chef and his staff.

    My husband and I made reservations here per the recommendation of a friend. When we were seated I was a little disappointed because I looked at a wall! We were stuck in a corner and it wasn't the best atmosphere. But once that first appetizer came... I was very pleased! We had the heirloom tomato salad and the flavors were incredible. The buffalo mozzarella was the best I have ever had. I ordered the halibut special over corn succotash and it was equally as delicious. My husband order the coffee rubbed filet and he was very pleased as well. I would highly recommend it for the food but not so much for the ambience.

    Everything was good, but not nearly as good as I expected. In fact my first few bites of my soup were even cold. (The center was warm, but the outsides were cold.) Also, I expected it to be more flavorful. The lobster tacos were good, but small. The duck pancake was good as well, but a little too much BBQ sauce and once again... small. Our waiter was great. Relaxing experience. I guess for me, the bottom line is that I paid too much for what I got. I left Lola's (Cleveland) paying 50% more, but I felt it was worth it. Here, not as much. So sorry!!! But I wanted to be honest.

    I enjoy this type of food since we don't have much of it in the mid-Atlantic. The roasted corn soup is A-MAZ-ING. I also enjoyed the semi-spicy side of collard greens, and the goat cheese fondue. I have been here twice over two different Vegas trips: once for brunch and once for dinner. I must say, I preferred it more for brunch as they gave us an awesome basket of sweet bread/corn muffins/etc. Service is always impeccable.

    I must say that the service in general was very good. We were welcomed by many people and thanked by the same upon our exit. That being said, our server was amazing. He explained dished and drinks with such a passion that it made us want to eat everything. He gave us recommendations based on our needs and wants, and we truly felt comfortable with them. Unfortunately, we did not get his name, but he was exceptional. As for the food, it was a lot more seasoned than we are accustomed too. For me, the tastes we phenomenal, and I enjoyed every bite. My wife has a simpler pallet, and she was very happy when the kitchen was able to remove the sauce and tone down the flavors. FYI, she ended up dipping her chicken in the sauce! Thank you!

    Whenever we are in Las Vegas we eat lunch at Mesa Grill. The food is excellent and inventive without being so esoteric it is off-putting, and the service is great: friendly and efficient. Tables are close to one another; hard surfaces everywhere can make for lots of noise, but lunchtime usually is quieter than in the evening. I tried the roasted corn soup this time as a first course. It was the best I have eaten anywhere.

    We had dinner for 2 here (tuna nachos, pork tenderloin, lamb chops, and a few margaritas). It was the best meal we have ever had, we almost felt guilty for eating something so delicious. The only thing that didnt quite sit right, was we felt a little rushed when ordering our entrees. I'm sure it was accidental, but we hardly looked at the menu before he was already walking away. Now stop reading this review, and go eat here!

    4 people in our party. For beef, only filet mignon was excellent. Ribeye was gristly and had a lot of fat. New York Strip Steak was dry. The regular margaritas were okay, too expensive and too small, however the pear margarita was great. The tamale as a side dish just crumbled when taken out of the husk. The corn and cilantro side dish and twice baked potatoes were good. The bread basket had really good jalapeño bread but the cornbread crumbled in your hands when you tried to eat it, too dry. With tip, we paid $400 for 4 people. For that price, we should have been wowed. A more reasonable price for the quality of that meal should have been about $150. We were disappointed because we like Bobby Flay as a celebrity chef.
