    Waiter said what the special was and the ladies ordered the fish special, but really wanted the Fish Fry. A complete misunderstanding. No one at the table realized it until after the order arrived. An adjustment was made in the billing, but two people not really satisfied.

    Will definitely go again for roast beef night. Ambiance very nice. Thought there might have been a few more diners to lend body to room. Service very good and nonintrusive. We were well able to converse without much problem. Very nice evening.

    The restaurant is 10 minutes down Dynamite Rd in North Scottsdale, and a beautiful drive with a vista of Four Peaks Mountains, and the patio and restaurant are perfectly situated to take advantage of the views. The moon rising over the Mountains during dinner was amazing. Consistently good food - this Chef just gets it.

    This restaurant has a thoughtful Chef who has put together a menu that combines (a) Showcase Specials (b) Comfort Foods (c) Hearty Salads (d) Great Grill - steaks, chops, ribs with wide choice of sides from veggies to loaded potatoes. Something for everyone so it is easy to go with friends. The view of the mountains overlooking the lake at sunset is spectacular. Have dined both outside on the patio and inside.

    The service and meal was wonderful as usual. There was a large party that came in before we finished our entrees and it became so noisy we had to shout across the table at each other.

    The restaurant is a ways out, but it's worth it. I normally try to stay without a 15 minute drive of my home. It took us 35 minutes but I will certainly go back. The food was great, the service was very good and we were able to talk to each other in a normal voice. Very well done in all areas.

    We eat at the Mesquite Grill @ Tonto Verde often. The food and service are excellent. The wine list, though not large, has an excellent selection that is fairly priced - which is had to find these days. Their meat and seafood are of a consistently high quality. I like the fact that they change the menu monthly. We also enjoy the view - we watch the ducks, egrets, great blue herons and an eagle that is a regular seasonal visitor.

    I dine here often and always find it very good. I especially like the fish dishes. Chef Chris has a real talent for cooking fish. The trout and the halibut are very good. I also like the steak and the their signature soup "Corn Chowder". The service is always the best and the views are wonderful. There isn't much not to like about the Mesquite Grill.
