An outstanding meal: the evening special blackened salmon with a crab sauce, roasted red potatoes, asparagus wrapped in bacon. Beautifully prepared and presented. Service was good and attentive. Drawback early in the evening with a large crowd that was very loud in the bar, but eventually left.

Our waitress was very friendly. My wife and duaghter ordered both medium cooked filet mignon and I ordered a Rib Eyes steak with a baked patato. The filet mignons were not medium but well done. We showed the waitress bith filets and she agreed that is was definitely well done instead of medium. so they went back to the kitchen. My rib eye steak did notv come with the baked patato that I ordered but scallop patato. The changesdthat for baked patotoa which came later. In the meantime I started to eat the steak before it would get cold. When I finshed my steak the medium filet mignons came. this is not a pleasnt way to have dinner with 3 paople. it looked that they really did not cae about this.

Good food but overall but server was disinterested and did not explain specials well - not the first time. I'd return using the summer special but would think twice about full price given some food quality and service hitches.

Good experience as we were seated upon arrival. Waitress was at the table in a timely manner. She described the specials and took our drink orders. When she soon returned with our drink order she took our entree orders. The order arrived quickly and was very tasty. We enjoyed the experience and will return to enjoy the experience.

Loved it. Nice quick pleasant drive for 8 miles beyond our home in Fountainhills. No lights, stop signs or people. Then bam, You’re in the little town of Rio Verde. Very quiet very pleasant. We kind of hope the secret doesn’t get out because it was everything quaint and quiet that we loved about it

Always good, however the special fish “opakapaka” was over cooked. This is a very delicate fish, and really doesn’t need to be treated with all of the extra accoutrements..simple would have been a wiser avenue for this wonderful fish. The service as always was fabulous as was everything else! We eat at Mesquite every few weeks and look forward to our next visit!

We had a lovely dinner at Mesquite Grill. We were seated by a window where we could see the golf course, fountains, and Tonto mountains in the distance. We both had the dry-aged rib eye steak that was excellent. It came with vegetable and potato and was reasonably priced vs. typical steak houses.

Mesquite Grille never disappoints and has become one of our favorites for consistently good food and we love the ambience, especially when it is patio weather. Our server, Dominique, who we’ve had the pleasure of having more than once, was absolutely delightful, as always. We will keep returning as it’s a winning formula.

I have a food allergy and both the waitress and chefs did everything to accommodate. The food was well prepared and well presented. I had an Asian variation of Mahi Mahi and my wife shrimp cocktail and salad. Everything was fresh and exceeded our expectations at a fair price. We will return soon.

Mesquite Grill is a hidden desert gem. Our dining experience was outstanding, from the hostess greeting and seating by Cindy to Ed's service at our table. The restaurant manager, Bill, came to our table to make sure we were pleased with everything. We even returned the next afternoon for their terrific happy hour. Also a wonderful selection of entrees and desserts. Simply wonderful.

We so enjoyed your summer special and the food was delicious. I was surprised that an automatic service charge/tip was added to our party of 4. Usually it is for larger parties
Our waiter was very accommodating but towards the end of the meal ... we had to hunt him down to order dessert and drinks. I know he got busier but he could have checked
With us to make sure we didnt need anything. Love the restaurant and we will return soon.

Ramon was excellent in seeing that we had a great dining experience. The house wines are very good. My wife had the seafood special and I had the Filet. Both were cooked perfectly and the accompanying sauces superb.
We split the Key Lime Pie. 👍
