We enjoy the Tonto Verde Mesquite Grill. The food is always delicious, and the wait staff
are very polite and courtious. We will return for more of the excellent food and ambiance.
Beautiful artwork. We have held birthday parties and anniversary parties there, and always enjoy them with friends.

My wife and I ate here 3 times and were satisfied every time. The wait staff is attentive and friendly, the menu is varied and the food was excellent. The value is priced appropriately and fits a budget. We recommend giving it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

We made reservations and were promptly seated when we arrived. The menu has great choices. My wife ordered a steak and fish combination plate. I ordered the Filet Mignon. Our meals arrived in good time and where cooked to perfection. Our server was great.

Excellent food,service and ambiance. Beautiful view from the patio when enjoying cocktails or outdoor dining. We have been several times and have never been disappointed. There is a varied menu and the preparation has been uniformly excellent. The service charge(tip) is automatically included on the bill but we have never received anything but good service. This is simply a great casual dining choice for anyone in the Scottsdale/Fountain Hills area.

This is one terrific restaurant. Great food and always wonderful and prompt service. The staff is outstanding, no doubt a function of manager Bill Holmes (think that's his name) who is always on top and enthusiastic. But two negatives don't seem to change after multiple visits. One is: when sitting at the bar, while the bartenders are competent, when they finish with a bottle, they often throw it -- that is -- CRASH THE BOTTLE -- into the garbage can, creating a startling noise as it hits other bottles. Easy guys; place it in there gently. The other point is regarding the temperature of red wine: it is served too warm. The old adage that reds should be at room temperature is out of date; reds are not appealing when served in the mid-70s, even with AC in the room. The international food and beverage standard is that red wines should be slightly chilled, and Mesquite Grill -- for its "by-the-glass" offerings and why not the entire list of full bottles -- needs to invest in an effective cooler for this purpose. Research it, find space for it and buy one. With this restaurant so good, management needs to address this issue so that the wine program is equal in overall quality of the cuisine. One final point: the wine list should be refreshed with 30% new names each season. Keep it interesting, not the same old names. Those who valued good wine -- and choose restaurants because of it -- tend to move to new restaurants that have dynamic (changing) wine lists. Cheers.

I got the New England clam chowder. It was fare. Nothing special. I also got the special which was scallops and crab over a pasta. The scallops were very good. Wish I could have had more than 2 scallops. The crab meat was mixed in with the pasta sauce and thus not noticeable. They could have left it out and it would have made no difference.
We enjoy the ambiance here. Nice views and comfortable seats on the patio.

We go to the Mesquite Grill very often. We live in the community and we find the staff especially good and friendly. The food has yet to disappoint and the views, especially from the patio, is spectacular with the eagle fly over occasionally this time o year.

Always enjoy our dinners at the mesquite grill. It's good for any size group and the view is wonderful. We enjoy both lunches and dinners there. The restaurant managers are very hands-on the the servers are knowledgable and very pleasant. We live in the area but we have friends who travel from Scottsdale to join us frequently.

Glad we've found this eatery. Handy location for the Verdes and Fountain Hills. When the room is full, a bit on the high noise side, but worth it. Service is fine, and varied menu is prepared well. We've been there a couple times this winter, and play to return.

My wife and I eat there frequently when we’re in the area. We dined there on Valentine’s Day evening. They had some specials that were excellent. I told the waitress that my Ahi tuna entrée was one of the best I’ve ever had. The food is always good. The wait staff are extremely pleasant and courteous. Current management has trained the staff very well. They make nonmembers feel very welcome.
