Last minute decision to go
Last minute decision to go there but it is one of our favorites. Splurged on the appetizer - lobster bisque so went easy on the entree, spaghetti with meat sauce. Both were very good. Would definitely recommend Mesquite Creek to everyone.

This was a birthday dinner
This was a birthday dinner for my husband and we took 4 kids, ages 7, 9, 11, and 13. The service was wonderful. The waitress was amazing. She was extremely busy, yet got us everything we wanted/needed in a timely manner. She was helpful with presenting nightly specials and menu questions. We brought home a fair amount of left-overs in order to fit in dessert. The tuxedo cake and creme brulee were fabulous! The steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked and the seafood pasta was outstanding. Very fresh and delicious.

Took some friends out to dinner
Took some friends out to dinner on Saturday night as a thank you and used Open Table for our reservation. We arrived 10 minutes early and were still seated right away. My husband and I shared the filet mignon with broccoli, salad and baked potato and there was plenty of food for us both. Our friends ordered the white fish and grilled chicken. All the food was very good as well as the bread that was brought to our table with the salads. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgable about the menu and beer selection. They had a pretty good selection of beer on tap and the other drinks that were ordered were good as well. There was a two piece band playing in the bar, but we didn't stay to hear them. Overall it was a nice experience.

Double Date Night
Had a wonderful double date night. Every person at my table enjoyed the food and the service. Our waitress, Shawna, was a gem. She allowed us to try a few pasta sauces few before choosing, suggested an excellent bottle of wine and when I asked about the prime rib steak she told me (up sell) me to their off menu prime rib on the bone. I asked for it medium and it came out perfect. No complaints as usually. Great dinning experience.

It took 15 minutes to get
It took 15 minutes to get our first drinks. I guess there was only 3 servers that showed up, because it was the first beautiful day outside. But the server made up for it and the food was very good.

Mesquite Creek continues to
Mesquite Creek continues to hold measure versus its past. Menu changes have removed some items we liked, but we;re getting along nonetheless. Steaks are still to be treasured -- best in the Joe Vacari steak lineup. Service here has always been top-drawer. Now if MC could just get a bartender that really knows how to make cocktails.

Favorite local restaurant,
Favorite local restaurant, but newer wait staff needs more training in this level of dining experience. Very slow to check on things, missing place settings, and served wine in water water stained glassware (glass, stem, and base with numerouse cloudy spots - could have been soap...)

I enjoyed the restaurant but I felt I picked a disappointing entre. I am used to the Bloomfield location and was hoping for some of the choices they offer.

Excellent food and service. Dessert was especially momorable.

I made a reservation for 10 people. Our Siblings got together to remember the best of times and celebrate our Dad. It went very well.
I requested a round table and the restaurant was able to make that happen. Without question or complaint our very good waiter, Bob did a great job of separate checks for the 5 couples.
We all enjoyed our food and fellowship and will not hesitate to return with a big or small group.

Our staff did an outstanding job getting us out on time to see a concert at the Palace. I'd written a note in the Open Table reservation about our needing to get to this event and the staff made sure we were treated top notch and out ON TIME!!!

We made our latest visit to
We made our latest visit to Mesquite Creek on Halloween night. Not many children in our neighborhood, so we thought we'd hang out with adults. Everything about his visit was a little off-speed. Our server may have been a rookie (although he didn't wear a "trainee" badge) -- he wast OK with is rehearsed material, but fell down on questions about the menu, etc. He was efficient at running food and drinks, so delays were short. Mt ribeye was good -- excellent zip sauce -- but my wife's filet was tough -- out of character for that cut and for MC. When we go to the bill, our server had it quite screwed up and it took the manager to sort it out. We'll go back, but will be wary on our next visit.

Best Green Beans Anywhere!
You could make a dinner out of their "Loaded Baked Potatoe" and their green beans, but you should save room for dessert because their dessert offerings are incedible.
