Mesa Grill offers Southwest-influenced cuisine to eager casino goers in Caesars. Located adjacent to the main casino floor and across from the Colosseum, the location provides an elegant escape from the bustle on the floor while still allowing patrons to keep an eye on the action.
The design is a soft, shining example of what fine restarants can be. The staff, while not in a hurry, are experienced and well trained. A full premium bar and extensive wine list fully complement the menu, but be ready for the $15 minimum on cocktails...
The food is delicious. I would recommend exactly what we had, although I suspect that any entree would delight and suprise. The crispy squid (and baby octopus) was served atop avocado vinaigrette. The appetizer was portioned for two and was the perfect start of our meal. The entrees were a southwest-rubbed pork loin with merlot barbeque sauce and a sweet corn tamale followed by a green chile cioppino (green chile based broth with mussels, scallop, lobster, crab, etc.). If you find yourself at Caesars Palace, find yourself at Mesa Grill.
