I was a bit disappointed in the food at the Mojave Grill. We started out with a quesadilla appetizer which was delicious so I had high expectations. Unfortunately our entrees of catfish and enchiladas was just mediocre . I thought they were rather expensive. I have never been to a southwestern restaurant that charged you for tortilla chips and salsa.... More

Great place to eat on a nice day and enjoy the Westfield outdoor sidewalk dining experience. Service was great. They went out of their way to give us the table we wanted (sidewalk). BYOB always a plus. Helped offset, what I considered, high priced for good/average Mexican food. Good experience. Would not put it on my "regular" list. Maybe once... More

Dine here often and the food is always good. If you like southwestern will be hard pressed to find better in the area.

The corn bread was a bit spicy but tasty. The corn soup special was also spicy but good. We had enchiladas which were ok, plenty of fodd, but average taste. For dessert, we had the tres leches cake what ch was not very good at all--very dry with a lot of very sweet caramel. It was disappointing.

I met my friend at Mojave Grill and had a most pleasant dinner. We met at 6:00 so I'm sure the dinner crowd rush had not yet begun. The wait staff was pleasant and the food was tasty. We were not rushed through dinner, unlike some restaurants. The restaurant does have a small outdoor seating area, but if you would... More

Nice Southwestern atmosphere with some creative selections. Corn bread starts your meal. It had a little of a kick to it. Very tasty. The cajun catfish which was absolutely delicious. Enjoyable place with a varied menu. Nice to sit outside also. Service was good. A little pricey but portions were adequate. The desserts were okay. Had a tres leches cake,... More

We then had a pear salad which was excellent. Lastly we had sesame crusted tuna which was very good. We liked this restaurant due to they put a... More

We've been coming here for about 10 years and always enjoy our meal. The Southwestern menu hasn't changed very much over the years, but it's always fresh and delicious. BYOB

Went for a Friday evening dinner. The menu selection is very limited and un-imaginative. DO NOT HAVE ANY VEGETARIN CHOICES - this day and age it's shocking It's highly overpriced (feel like I was ripped-off) - soup with a shallow bowl with very few spoons. So called vegetarian choice that was made as a special request - nachos with cheese,... More

I brought a friend to Mojave after reading some positive reviews. I wasn't impressed, I thought that the food was average, and the staff wasn't particularly friendly. I won't go back to this restaurant.
