Had a delightful dinner several nights ago with friends. Well functioning ceiling heaters allowed us to sit on patio and take in spectacular views. Meals were fabulous. (Tried steak, salmon and halibut -all equally good) Server was attentive and informed.

Great food as always. Service wasn’t quite what we’d had in the past and had to flag down servers from other tables to get what we needed.

The reason not to recommend to a friend was the incredibly long wait for a server after being seated. Then the long wait for food to arrive.

Always enjoy the Mesquite Grill. Hostess and servers were pleasant and attentive. All our meals were served at the appropriate temperature and were good. We have had previous experiences at the Mesquite Grill, and those experiences were enjoyable. We enjoyed the meals on this evening. We have really enjoyed previous meals, and this evening the overall situation was good. We will be back.

Tried the new breakfast / brunch menu. Best blueberry pancakes ever!! Egg dishes were all great.... Cajun omelette was just the right amount of spice. Sat on the beautiful patio.... wonderful over head heaters made the brunch in 56 degrees feel like 70.

Nice menu, good service by Jake; food always good. We drive out there often, but we wish the wine list would change more often. When the food is so good, the wine program needs to be comparable -- by adding some velocity (changing names, seasonally or annually), as this will convey the place is serious about food AND beverage. Another drawback is that red wine is served at room temperature. This is not the international standard for quality restaurants. Restaurant needs to add a cooler for red wines too, albeit at a higher temperature that whites. No fun drinking reds at 72 degrees. Maybe next time I'll bring my own. Always great to see Bill, the F &B manager, as he makes you feel welcome. Keep him.

Prime Rib Tuesday is always busy but the food is good. We do this every couple of months but are getting more discouraged. Lately, we order drinks first but usually receive them well into the meal. Good luck ordering a second drink! They definitely need more help particularly in the bar. Businesses make a lot of their profit off of drinks, so they should want to fix that.

This is one of my favorite places. Yes it is remote from Scottsdale but if you haven't had lunch or dinner here it is your loss. They are always on top of their game. I love it!

We really enjoy this restaurant. The food and staff are wonderful as are the views. It is a dining experience I think you will enjoy and at a decent price. I especially enjoy the salmon on the plank and the beet salad is very good.

The "quiet room" is wonderful. I don't go to the dining room with all the televisions. I like to get away from that when I go out to dinner., and I enjoy the time spent talking with my husband without interruptions. If I'm going to spend some money on a nice dinner, I don't want to share it with a television.

I'm not sure how reliable Open Table is, though. I asked for a booth in my reservations but was told they didn't have any. There was one that was open from the time we got there to the time we left. Go figure.

It was a wonderful anniversary dinner. Thank you so much.
