Diner Reviews
  • "Service was great for a busy restaurant. The food was outstanding! The Yucatan pork and the shrimp/scallops are highly recommended... And the dulce de leche churro balls were dessert heaven!!"

  • "The chefs who own Border Grill put together a wonderful menu so that every dish offers a taste to treasure."

  • "The Food here was Great! The servers were Outstanding! The only thing I was confused about...when I tried to make our reservation for 5 pm for our group of 7.. Open Table said that was not available... we had to go at 4pm.... As we sat there 5pm through 5:45 the restaurant was 1/2 empty. so...whats up with that??"

  • "My daughter had been several times and highly recommended it. She admitted it wasn't nearly as good as she remembered. Food was very good, but not spectacular. Our waiter seemed rather inexperienced. Our appetizer was impossible to eat (and share) without small plates (which had not been provided), yet it took quite a long time to get anyone's attention to ask for them. The water and beer were barely "cold". I used comp points, which are supposed to be taken on the price before tax (so you save the tax), but he applied it after tax...so I took it out of his tip."

  • "My husband and I have been to Las Vegas many times and we have eaten at numerous restaurants inside the various hotels. All the restaurants we have eaten in have received four to five star ratings and they truly deserved it. The Border Grill at the Mandalay was terrible on all levels! Food quality, service, and atmosphere. They are clearly out of their league in Las Vegas. In addition to this, they have no restrooms in the restaurant. You have walk out of the restaurant walk down two flights of stairs then walk a it to get to a restroom. Horrible,"

  • " We were greeted in a friendly manner by the server Amanda and started with complimentary chips and salsa, which were house made and very good. For beverages we ordered the basic margarita and pomegranate limeade.For food, we began with the border classics, which I really enjoyed. The corn tamales were a little deconstructed after unwrapped as if there was much more corn and very little masa, probably just a chef choice. For entrees we ordered yucatan pork plate and Amer. Wagyu tacos. Both were flavorful and well made. The house made thick tortillas were a nice touch. We finished with the Rufina Patel? desert-it was like a giant eclair. It was ok-topped with imitation choc. sauce and way too cloying."

  • "We have visited for brunch on multiple occasions. This brunch is special. It is all you can eat, but served from a small plates menu rather than a buffet. The dishes are light, delicious and beautifully prepared. The restaurant is comfortable and there is a fun outdoor seating area. We always leave happy!"

  • "Unique South West style food. Fresh salsa and chips.kids loved the tacos. I ate chef special, a pork tenderloin that was very good. My wife loved her Carne Asada. I don't recommend eating outside. The large fan is t enough to keep the shaded area (overlooking the pool) cool enough. Sweating while eating isn't ideal. The hostess may have been not very experienced, thus didn't offer any alternative seating."

  • "We have had brunch here many times. The food and variety is outstanding. You will love this Mexican food. Not your typical Mexican restaurant."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "You will not be disappointed with this brunch. Where the mimosa's flow like water and tapas menu is unique and delicious. Smoked salmon sliders with Jalapeño bacon, red velvet pancakes, the Bacon Jalapeño PBJ, Capirotada French Toast, Chicken and Waffle.... just to name a few. Settle in, and enjoy."

  • "Another great experience. Food was awesome - had the weekend brunch. It has so many small plate options. The flavors are spectacular. Can't remember our servers name but he was attentive and made us laugh. The all you can drink mimosas for $10 are hard to beat. Great flavors with cucumber basil being my favorite."

  • "Boarder Grill was recommended to us as we sat sharing food experiences with another foodie while dining the night before. The food was innovate and very fresh. It utilized wholesome ingredients in creative ways to blend the traditional flavors of Mexico with an upbeat modern taste. The best thing we had was the blood orange margarita. Really innovate and so tasty! A Winner on a hot Vegas afternoon."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "The food was delicious, however I am not big on onions (particularly raw onions) and most of the dishes have onion as a significant part of the flavor profile. That aside, the food was all beautiful and delicious, definitely worth visiting. I took advantage of the unlimited small plates option and this allowed me to try 8 different dishes, foodie paradise!"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "With the variety offered, was disappointed with quality of drinks. Ordered the Pineapple Vanilla - could taste neither flavor or tequila, only sugary mix. With that said, the entrée, shrimp and scallops was perfection. Birthday dessert was yummy!"

  • "I had the chicken special and it was marvelous. The spices were just right!"

  • "We were there for the Sunday Brunch. I thought my stomach was going to explode when I was done eating. The menu is a bunch of "small plates" and they keep on bringing whatever you ask for. The hardest part was choosing what to eat next. I wish we could've stayed for a few more hours, let my stomach digest this foodie goodness, and then start a second round!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Loved the quality of the food, and drinks. I had the brisket taquitos and they were covered in a creme, guacamole and slaw, which made them soggy. The ends were spared so we did enjoy the crunch there and the brisket was AWESOME, but it was disappointing that all of that wasn't just on the side. Similar issues on the tacos. Finally the guacamole was fresh and bright, but it was frustrating that in the menu description it did not state onions were in the guacamole when there was a very intense opinion taste and a plethora in the guacamole, frankly hard to avoid. It wasn't a deterrent for most at the table, but it was for me."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I have dined at Border Grill L.A. since the week they opened and have always been completely satisfied with the food and service. Is it difficult to find the proper help in Las Vegas? We had to ask several times for everything (ice, more water, chips, salsa etc. We gave up and stopped asking. It was a complete disappointment."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Recommend lunch, not dinner. Was attending trade show, location convenient. Both lunches flavorful, promptly served although busy. Went for dinner my last night, I studied the menu on line, but was told the items I wanted to order were lunch menu only. Waiter suggested 2 entree specials (specials change weekly). I told him this was my 3rd meal there in 2 days. I ordered the beef. Steak sliced over rice mixed w/corn & red peppers-non descript. Steak VERY tough. When waiter returned after a few bites I told him the beef was impossible to chew. He said "sorry, i won't recommend it." He didn't ask if I wanted something different, said he would take 15% off. Disappointed. Skip dinner, do lunch. Deafening inside. Super hot outside."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I come here every year for lunch when I go to a trade show in the hotel. I can't wait. It's one of my favorite restaurants in the hotel. The food is clean and service is great. Only thing I don't like is the chips are fried. That doesn't seem necessary. Baked is better."

  • "Staff was attentive and knowledgable about menu selections . Food was delicious. Perfect atmosphere for our anniversary celebration."

  • "Love the food at Border Grill! Their Sat. & Sun. brunch is so worth the price! Plus for $10 more, bottomless mimosa's! Can't go wrong! We left both full and satisfied! Plus their fruit filled empanada's are amazing! And our waitress even packed some up for us to take. I will definitely be returning again...and again!"

  • "I wasn't all that impressed. Food was so-so. The $9.50 guac appetizer wasn't worth the money."

  • "Brunch was fantastic! All you can eat small plates. Maybe.....just maybe.....a tad pricey but excellent food and our server even accommodated us by adding a lunch item (they were serving lunch at the same time anyway) to our brunch. HIGHLY recommend! You will NOT go away hungry or dissatisfied!"

  • "Went to get away from the crowds for lunch during a business mtg at the Mandalay. Great find. Good vibe. A bit loud. Loved the spinach drink. Rochelle, our waitress, was kind and patient."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Unfortunately we were in a rush because we had trouble getting to the hotel, and we had tickets for the Michael Jackson show so we had to rush. We would most assuredly go back because the food was exceptional (and I do not usually like Mexican style food) and the service was the best that we experienced in Vegas on this trip. We told the waitress that we were pressed for time and our food was delivered in record time. Over all it was a very excellent experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food was incredible...skirt steak tacos (gluten free!) were some of the best I have ever eaten. Quesadilla was fabulous and warm chips were a bonus! Very loud atmosphere...reservations are a MUST especially because it is in Convention Center area."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We visited for brunch and were lucky enough to sit on the beautiful patio overlooking the giant pool/beach area. Delightful! The brunch is all you can eat from a variety of items - we added bottomless mimosas which were delicious - flavors included watermelon, hibiscus, lemon, orange and mango - excellent! Our server was very nice and also attentive - she was fast and efficient on refilling drinks and bringing more brunch items. The food was tasty but all food came out lukewarm to cold. We complained and they were attentive but food was basically still very cool until almost the end of our meal. Recommendations for brunch are: Smoked Salmon Sliders, Johnny Cakes, Machaca Chiliquiles and the Churro Tots - - - we will try it again!"

  • "This was our second time to dine at this restaurant. The first time was amazing so we were so excited to return for brunch. When we arrived we were seated in a room down stairs that was out of the way, not the main dining room on the first floor. After we were sat it took about 15 minutes for our server to arrive. We promptly ordered our first round of drinks and food. Almost 1 hour passed and our server came back by to ask us how the food was thus far, problem was we had not gotten any of it yet just a couple of slices of bread. A few minutes later the food came out and it was all ice cold! At this point we had been there an hour and all we had was 2 pieces of breakfast bread and some cold food. I do not recommend this brunch."

  • "The brunch was excellent we tried 90 percent of the items on the brunch list. The small plates Were beautifully sized and the food was amazing. There was literally nothing from the menu we didn't love. I am a foodie and can honestly say this was one of the most delicious meals we had in Las Vegas."

  • "My friend and I hit up Border Grill Las Vegas before we got on our flights home to LA. I had looked up several brunch spots on the strip and this one won us over due to its low price and all you can eat small plates. We ended up having a great waitress and the food was fantastic and fast. We left an "all you can eat" area not feeling overly full and I will be recommending this spot to any of my friends who are in the Vegas area."
