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.

    We ordered the Goat Cheese Queso Fundito and Heirloom tomato salad for appetizers. They both were amazing. For our entrees were had the Ancho Chile Honey Glazed Salmon and the Spiced Rubbed Pork Tenderloin. And of coarse, the best margaritas ever...Cactus Pear!!! Everything was cooked perfectly and bursting with flavor.

    This was my first time at a celebrity chef restaurant. It's a gorgeous room and very noisy. Service was very good. Food is all quite spicy, not a surprise given the chef's leanings, but every dish had heat and it became difficult to distinguish among the nuances. That being said, everything was tasty.

    The Mesa grill defines fine dining. Our server Kent, and his staff did an amazing job of taking care of us the entire evening. We informed them upon arrival that my wife had a tree nut and peanut allergy and Kent took special care to ensure that there were no allergens present in her food. We ordered appetizers, main dishes and desserts and all three courses were excellent. I will say that if you do not like spicy food you may need to say something, because in typical Bobby Flay style, some of these dishes have a bit of a zip to them. I was fine with it, but there may be some folks that don't take to it as well.

    Whenever we travel to LasVegas we make sure to have dinner at Mesa Grill. We stopped again and good as ever. Great drinks and great food. Service was wonderful and inspite of a busy evening and a very long drop in waiting line, our reservation was honored and we were seated a couple minutes early. The food continues to impress and is classic Flay. Don't miss it.

    My husband had the pork and I had the lobster;both wonderful. The server had cautioned that the sauce on the lobster was "a little spicy" so I had it to the side.... It was perfect! I appreciated that the server was knowledgable about the menu... I actually asked for extra sauce for the lobster..

    I had visited a few years ago with just three people and had a fantastic visit. Our large group arrived on time, but waited an hour for our table (reservation through Open Table). During our wait, host staff apologized but that's about it. Food was excellent. Lamb was perfectly cooked. I ate one of two lamb chops. I asked to take away the untouched lamb chop. The wait staff agreed but never brought it back. I think it is a top notch restaurant, but can't recommend it for large groups.

    My waiter was superb - instead of just giving me recommendations, he inquired about my tastes and preferences then guided me to some particular items on the menu. For instance, I love lamb but at a Bobby Flay restaurant I was not inclined to order it. My waiter directed me to the best lamb chops I have ever had.

    Highlights first: Service is A+; food was attractively presented; ambience was fine for a busy casino location; margaritas (with >30 tequila choices) were GREAT (I chose "bar brand" tequila), the bread basket was kept full, and the tomato salad (I think this must be a seasonal offering because it's not on the online menu) was the best food of the evening. Negatives: The grilled shrimp tamale was excessively salty; the BBQ'd duck in a blue corn crepe had a goopy, too rich, too sweet sauce that overpowered the appetizer; the pork tenderloin entree was excessively spicy with more of the extra salty corn tamale; and the sides were too expensive and too generously portioned. I now know I prefer Mr. Flay on TV rather than cooking my meal.

    We were sat quickly and had a view of the casino. Server was quick and friendly. My main downside about Mesa Grill is the food isn't really worth what you get. Entrees are a la carte, which is pretty common for high end places, but the $10 sides were not shareable as most places are. Hard to justify spending $10 each on a small side of mashed potatoes or half of a baked potato. The food was decent, but was not at the top of the list compared to other places we dined during the trip. Glad that we gave it a try, but won't go back in the future. The value isn't there. Also, having to reserve a table with a credit card for a party of 4 is really tacky. Other places we have gone in Vegas at a higher price point didn't require this.

    We were very impressed with Mesa Grill. Hostess seated us as soon as we arrived and was turning others away that did not have a reservation. The food was spectacular. Our server explained the menu and what their most popular dishes were. Very unique flavors with a hint of spice. Bobby takes classic dishes and modernizes them. Our party of four enjoyed everything we ordered. Great meal and reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again.

    The tables are very close together. We started with the jumbo shrimp tamale which was very good. For entrees, my wife had the salmon and I had the coffee crusted filet. My wife said her salmon was very good. My filet, which I ordered medium rare, actually was butterflied(?) which is usually done for medium well to well done steaks. It was pink, dry, and bland. The seasoning was good, but not sure about their steak cooking techniques, I've had better at Outback! We had the roasted corn as a side which was excellent. I probably should have returned my steak but we were getting ready to go for a show. I think the Mesa Grill will lose a lot of business when The Border Grill opens nearby in October. The service at Mesa was very good.

    Our meal was outstanding. Our party of 6 loved the variety of Margaritas. The waitress was helpful is steering the wimpy among us away from the hot entres and had the kitchen put spicy sauces on the side (even so, the kitchen put jallepeno slices on my lamb - I got a few stray seeds and was not happy!). The lamb, vealchop and pork tenderloin were all cooked to perfection. I cant remember the name of the dessert but it was a chocolate pudding like dish - was no less than amazing.

    We have seen Bobby Flay on Food Network over the years, but have never tried his food. Although Southwestern isn't really our family's style, Mesa Grill was a good experience. When they say "heat and sweet", we now know what that means! Our family tried the lamb chop, rib eye and pork tenderloin entrees. They were flavor-full with heat. The chocolate cake and strawberry dulce de leche tart for dessert were scrumptious.

    The atmosphere was good and the the service was great but the food was lacking. I had 2 of Bobby's signature dishes and was disappointed in both. The tamale was over sweet and shrimp over cooked. The pork was cooked well but so over saturated in sauce it was lost. Just when I thought dessert could redeem the meal chocolate pudding my nephew could have made. Bobby broke my foodie heart.

    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.
