DELMONICO REPORT ( A+ ) and MESA GRILL ( C )

HELLO ALL...

I FINALLY MADE MY TRIP TO VEGAS WITH MY DAD THIS WEEKEND!

WE GOT THERE FRIDAY NIGHT AND WENT TO MESA GRILL FOR SOME COCKTAILS AND APPS BEFORE WE WENT TO SEE ELTON JOHN @ CAESERS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE INSIDE, VERY PRETTY ROOM. WE FIRST SAT DOWN IN THE LOUNGE BECAUSE THERE WASNT ANY SEATS AT THE BAR. IT TOOK QUITE A WHILE FOR SOMEONE TO COME OVER AND GET OUR DRINK ORDER. RIGHT AFTER WE DID PLACE OUR DRINK ORDER, THE BAR CLEARED OUT SO WE HOPPED RIGHT UP THERE AND TOOK 2 SEATS. BECAUSE WE WERE SITTING IN THE LOUNGE FIRST, THE COCKTAIL WAITRESS TOOK CARE OF US AND THE BARTENDERS NEVER EVEN SAID "HI" TO US, TOTALLY IGNORED US THE WHOLE TIME. MY FIRST DRINK WAS MADE WRONG, WITH PINEAPPLE INSTEAD OF OJ, AND IT WAS VERY WEAK. WE ORDERED THE GOAT CHEESE DIP AND THE BLUE CORN PANCAKE WITH DUCK. THE DIP WAS JUST OK, I LOVE GOAT CHEESE AND WAS EXCITED TO ORDER IT, AND IT WAS JUST OK. THE TORTILLAS THAT CAME WITH IT WERE STALE I THINK. SOME OF THEM WERE NICE AND LIGHT AND CRISPY, AND SOME WERE HARD AS A ROCK AND REALLY CHEWY. THE DUCK/PANCAKE WAS VERY TASTY, BUT TINY. WE HAD 4 DRINKS & 2 APPETIZERS TAX & TIP= $75. WOULDNT GO BACK...

THE NEXT NIGHT WE HAD DINNER RESERVATIONS AT DELMONICO AT 9PM. WE GOT SAT RIGHT AWAY AND FROM THE FIRST MINUTE WE WERE TREATED LIKE KING & QUEEN. THE SERVICE WAS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED.
THE INSIDE WAS REALLY NICE AND THE CHAIRS WERE VERY COMFY. WE HAD THE OYSTERS BIENVILLE AND THE CRAB STUFFED SHRIMP FOR APPS, WHICH WERE BOTH WONDERFUL AND THEN WE BOTH HAD FILET MIGNON FOR DINNER WITH GARLIC MASHED POT'S. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT!
FOR DESSERT WE HAD THE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CAKE AND THAT WAS DELICIOUS TOO. 3 COCKTAILS, 2 GLASSES OF WINE, 2 APPS, 2 ENTREES, 2 SIDES, 1 DESSERT, 1 HOT TEA, TAX & GOOD TIP= $220 ONE OF MY BEST DINING EXPERIENCES EVER.
