Excelente servicio y la comida excepcional, me quede con una agradable experiencia.
On vacation at a high end resort, we were really looking forward to a meal at this restaurant that advertised wood fired grilled food. My wife’s hamburger was a disappointment. Good quality meat was severely over-cooked. A place that sells its ability to handle meats really ought to know how to cook a hamburger so that it remains moist and tasty. Grass fed beef really is easy to over cook. Mexico is trying to take pride in its healthy beef. It can taste really good, but not when you grill until it cries uncle. My dish was really more of a surprise. It was supposed to be barbecued pork ribs with a ginger-tinted sauce. The ribs not only had no barbecued characteristics (no bark from smoking, (no crust from grilling), they tasted and looked like they had been braised, not baked or grilled. I was curious and I will eat almost anything, so I ate them out of curiosity. I don’t know if they were a badly executed dish of ribs that was ok because the ingredients were good, or a completely erroneously advertised dish odd new approach to cooking ribs. Either way, it was a big swing and a big miss.
Our server was trying so hard that I actually lied to him and said it was “fine”. I couldn’t bring myself to say good. In my family, “fine” is code for I am not happy. He had no clue, and was very attentive. Thus my ratings. The place needs to pay attention. The smell of the wood burning calls to mind delicious meats. We didn’t find them.
The briskett snd the steaks we ordered were filled with fat. The waiter was made aware of this and brought out one dinner entree which was better than the original but the management did not offer any compensation for the entrees that’s were so loaded with fat
Beautiful restaurant. We went there for the prime rib special which we were excited about. Very fatty and cold baked potatoes. They tasted delicious though. We sent back the potatoe to be reheated and it came back cold again. Pecan pie tasteless. Rib eye, which was like $60 USD not so good. Service was excellent and beautiful views and ambiance. just expected more from a steakhouse that was a bit pricey.
Dear Diane, Thank you so much for your comments, i have passed your general experience to our management team so they can improve in a future. We would love to welcome you again in Mezquite. Gracias!
Marcos, Israel and the team were awesome!! Terrific dining experience in a beautiful setting.
Truly was a wonderful meal.
The food was the best we’ve had in Cabo and the service was amazing!
Beautiful restaurant, great service and food was very very good. Definitely go back.
Ambience and service was great. Food was nothing close to what you would expect.
Excelente comida y gran restaurante .... por persona no te gastas más de 1000 pesos con una GRAN CENA.
We were big fans of the previous restaurant in this space ie, Herringbone. The decor of the El Mezquite Wooden Grille has not changed much and is still beautiful. Unfortunately, the service and food quality do not match the ambiance of the restaurant site. The wait staff was slow and somewhat confused in providing us service - simple requests like "bring a wrap for the ladies" since we had an outside deck table took way too long. The food selections were good, but the beef items were delivered cool/cold as well as the onion rings. The restaurant was not busy so, it is unfortunate that the food was not properly cooked, etc.. As things exist now, this restaurant will only survive with "one-time" clients. Too bad because we definitely like the Vindata Resort, but will not return to this restaurant.
High quality thru and thru. Vidanta never disappoints. Will definitely be back
Prime rib was fat, food cold, inattentive service as items were missing. Manager did his best.
Food was good and the service was excellent! Live DJ with on the spot request.... highly recommend this place.
Great food, great service! The drinks yummy! I will be back!
Vacation. We were staying next door and decided to check it out. Great spot!
Most of the food was well prepared with creative presentation. One of our party had a NY Strip that lacked flavor and the cut of meat was very poor, especially for the price point. The staff was very accommodating and took the steak off the bill. For a restaurant named Mesquite, I expected a steak with body and flavor. The service was friendly and appropriate to the price range of the restaurant. The ambiance and environment is phenomenal.
After being open a few months, I would imagine that they are still working out some kinks.
Great service and setting is amazing!!
Would go back anytime!
Food quality excellent. Service was prompt and cordial.
Do not go if you have kids! There is no kids menu and very few options for them from the adult menu. They served pasta to a 4 and 5 year old in a sizzling fajita skillet. Who serves a child in a sizzling hot skillet?!?!? Ridiculous.
Great atmosphere and first class service. The hotel is beautiful - the skywalk to access the restaurant is amazing. Go there for drinks or just to enjoy a great dinner.
“For a brand-new restaurant, Mesquite Grill functions perfectly. Excellent service, fabulous presentations, delicious food and large portions. The offering of flour tortillas roasted on the grill was an exceptionally creative concept. Despite a decent-sized crowd, there was a server nearby at all times. We will be back soon and often. And make sure to order the chili!”
