Our excellent waiter Mark made all 18 of our ladies very happy for hours. The private vault room was perfect for our large group!!

Outstanding as usual. Our Servers Jen, Thai and Marc are all so great! They always come by to check on us or just to say hello! Awesome team. We were very upset to hear Eric the F&B Director left. He was wonderful to speak to because he LISTENED! He really was a positive for F&B.

Bistro 1528 was energized. Very busy. However, the service (Ben, our waiter, and the staff) was great! Ben was very personable and informative and had great suggestions and responses to our questions. Since we winter in Encanterra we plan on a dining at Bistro 1528 a couple of times each month and introducing our friends, relatives and guests to some very fine dining at a reasonable cost. The food was delicious and the menu outstanding! In fact, we are entertaining a friend tomorrow and will have lunch at Bistro 1528. And we will look to have Ben as our waiter. He was great!

We were very disappointed with our dinner at Bistro this time. The background music was very loud and there were so many people we couldn’t even carry on a conversation it was so noisy. Our waitress forgot some of the drinks and did not come back to the table very often, for which she apologized. We brought friends this time because we were so happy with the Bistro in the past. It will definitely be a while before we go back.

We tried the new brunch buffet for $15 which includes an omelette station and many other choices. The $15 includes coffee or juice and you can upgrade to a mimosa for another $3. The food as always excellent and the price a bargain for what you get. The view from the restaurant is awesome.

Nice job by Ben. The booths on the side tend to be quieter which helps conversation. Really like the Salmon in Papillote and the create your own (protein and sides). Chef did a good job keeping my salmon medium rare. Finally, good follow up to my special request for a bottle of Prosecco to be at the table when we arrived to celebrate our anniversary. Thanks to all for a very good experience.

The hostess sat us in a cove with several other tables making the noise level high (there were children at one of the tables). I ordered a chicken bread dinner and received half of a chicken breast. It took at least 15 minutes to get our drinks. Salads came out first and two minutes later, the dinner.

I recommend it with a caveat that it used to be much better. Dinner was good instead of great. Wine was good. The biggest problem is they've changed the Butter Cake dessert. It used to be so good you would want to make the drive out just for the Butter Cake. Cost is just about prohibitive. We're debating on whether we go again in the future.

Encanterra is getting better and better. Our meal was the BEST we've had yet! Service was really fantastic as well! This is our favorite restaurant in San Tan Valley and it's perfect when you want a nice meal, without driving all the way to Chandler or Phoenix. We had the filet and the hummus board. FANTASTIC!

Beautiful setting. Omelet Buffet menu only unless you want a lunch item for brunch. Hopefully there will be a return of a breakfast menu in the near future besides omelet buffet. Servers are all fairly new but polite and professional.

We were celebrating a birthday and the staff knew it but did not offer anything to the birthday person except a Happy Birthday greeting.
Everything else was great!

I dine at Bistro 1528 frequently during the winter months. On the dinner involving this review I had my wife, daughter and two grandkids (ages 1 and 3). I set a dinner reservation at 5:00PM in consideration of the young children. The food was good and the ambiance was exceptional; however, the pace was extremely slow. We did not get our dessert until after 8:00pm. The kids were well beyond restless so they left with my wife and daughter around 8:15pm. I stayed to cover the bill. By 8:30pm, I become frustrated with waiting and left the table to go to the front desk to square up. I think a 3.5 hour dinner is fine for adults who want to chat and savor a good wine over their meal, but we had small children. The waitstaff just did not seem sensitive to our needs. I can't say I won't eat there again as it is the only restaurant in our development - so of course I will. However, if other options were available, I would forego another night like this one at the Bistro 1528.

Perfect season for outdoor dining. Friday night pasta bar is a great hit, along with beautiful expanded menu. Highly recommend early reservations if you want an outdoor table, as the Encanterra Bistro is becoming well known, and is popular with returning winter visitors and new residents.

Our dinner at Bistro 1528 was amazing, from the server who gave us great service, and the quality of the food we ordered.
We would definitely come back on our next trip to Mesa.
