    We go here often but about 1 of 5 times the food is just average. If you go just do the brunch it's so much bEtter than dinner a lot more bang for your buck. Also, you won't be stuck with something you don't like, it's all you can eat.

    We always love Border Grill. It's a must visit every time we're in Vegas. This trip we noticed that they were offering brunch. Perfect when you're still on East Coast time. Loved the chicken and waffles! Hubby said the Breakfast Fries were his fave. My only complaint - the menu should state when you're going to put a fried egg on a dish. We ordered the PB&J - came with an egg. Hubby said it was awesome...I don't eat eggs. But other than that...great as always.

    Border Grill isn't anything mind-blowing & I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there but it's a solid option if grabbing a bite while at Mandalay Bay. In my case, I like to make reservations there before events. The service is lukewarm but not bad. The chips, salsas & guacamole are yummy... as are the chicken enchiladas & quesadillas. But both flavors of rice & the black beans are quite bland. The restaurant itself is kinda cool, with several different dining areas with different personalities.

    My experience at Border Grill was not good. When my wife and I entered the restaurant we were put at a table that was not steady. We then were able to switch tables. The waiter was not friendly at all. We thought for some reason that he did not like us. We were served soda and were not asked if we wanted a refill. All in all I would not recommend this restaurant. My cousin knows Susan and recommended it to me. The staff dd not seem to mesh together. It just was not a good experience.

    Arrived early for our reservation, and were seated promptly on the outside patio. Server was energetic, quickly getting our margaritas so we could get the evening started. The meal was fantastic...you could taste the freshness of all the ingredients. Would definitely recommend Border Grill for a relaxed meal and tasty drinks. Location itself is a little out of the way, but once you get there, you will not be disappointed.

    Have enjoyed Sunday Brunch at the Border Grill twice and both times, the experience was quite enjoyable. For about $30 ($40 for unlimited various Mimosas) diners can enjoy an endless parade of small, south-of-the-border, variations on many dishes (similar to Tapas). You may want to try everything, but eventually you realize that sadly you must stop before a food coma sets in. Negotiate with your dining mates to improve the range of samples and beware the endless, delicious Mimosas. Service is cheerful and prompt.

    We love Mexican cuisine and chose this restaurant because we were seeing a show later in the evening at Mandalay Bay. The service was warm and inviting. The menu was interesting with more variety than your typical Mexican cafe, and the margaritas were outstanding. Our only complaint was the ambiance. We dined on the outdoor patio and found the decor boring and somewhat unattractive. There is a view of the pool area, but from what we could see the pavement and surroundings were due for an upgrade and maintenance. Would not keep us from dining again, but there is room for improvement.

    One of our favorite places! We both had the three course menu was is a great value and gives you lots of options to choose from. I had the espresso rubbed pork tenderloin and it was the best pork dish I have ever tasted. Husband had the skirt steak and we both believe no one elevates skirt steak the way Border Grill. Great, attentive service and had a great chat with the Ryan, the GM. Cannot wait to return.

    I've been to Border Grill many times. Food is always good, but the service can be spotty. We had a waitress that was so professional and appropriately friendly that it transformed the meal from very good to excellent. Unfortunatley, this kind of service and treatment is rare these days so it is especially appreciated when it is received.

    We went to Vegas for an overnighter with some good friends who wanted to try a "celebrity chef restaurant" Fenninger and Milliken are some of my favorite chefs from cooking shows so I was very excited to try this hidden gem. We were seated promptly and had a very attentive waiter who quickly brought us chips and a trio of salsas. The salsas were very fresh and had the perfect amount of spice! We ordered the queso fundido to start, which was served with fresh tortillas. It was fantastic. Out of the four of us, I must say that my dish of chicken mushroom poblano enchiliadas was by far the best. It was awesome and we will definitely keep this place on our radar

    Excellent brunch options. Served tapas style, the red velvet johnny cakes, peanut butter, jelly, and jalapeno sandwich and skirt steak with breakfast potatoes where all amazing. The bottomless mimosas are a great add on for $10 (loved the hibiscus!). Server was very helpful in guiding us through the numerous selections. Will definitely return.

    I was in charge of finding a good dining spot for our group of 6, visiting from California for a family occasion the next day and staying at the Four Seasons (on the Mandalay Bay property). Having been to Border Grill previously, I decided that would be an easy and relaxed destination for our first evening together, and my choice was proven right. We had a lovely evening out on the balmy patio, enjoying our delicious meal (try the chile relleno and Caesar salad-- we were raving about those), relaxed, unhurried, just perfect. Our food server, Paul, gave us just the right amount of service-- not too much, not too little. We all left very full and very pleased. Highly recommended!

    Incredible food and service - try the small plates - the server had many savory recommendations! Not what you'd call typical Mexican food but better because of the nuances of flavors. We had nine tasty selections, certainly enough for a full meal but the variety was what made our dinner special. The chefs are well known for their dedication to sustainable food and hunger programs.

    Our 2nd time at BG for Brunch. The food was good, not great this time. The steak & eggs, breakfast fries, guava empanada, and french toast were the best things we had this time, YUM! The Eggs Benedict was heavy, the egg was mostly raw & something in it had too much of a cinnamon-like taste. Tell your server if you intend to share plates (we didn't & started off with duplicates of dishes). Our server for some reason REALLY wanted to order for us, even after we'd politely & specifically told him we wanted to order things ourselves. He took an initial order from us of a few things but didn't return to get more, so once those came out, more food just kept coming - some we would've ordered, others we wouldn't & disliked. We also felt rushed.

    Being a local, and placing our VIP card on the table when we sat down, didn't seem to matter to the server. He mumbled his presentation of specials, his eyes kept moving to other workers and customers as they came in. It was hard to get his attention when needed. However, when an in-house group of businessmen of 6 came in, loud and demanding, the host, server and everybody else couldn't seem to offer enough attention. In short, we were treated like everybody treats tourists in Las Vegas, "really, who cares there's plenty of out of towners to fill the seats". We tipped 20% on the TOTAL, including the free margaritas, we had to ask for credit for the second one, and left thinking it would be a while before coming back.

    We showed up 30 minutes early and were seated without a wait outside on the patio. From this point, it took 20 minutes for the waitress to come over and take our drink order. During this time 3 seperate buss boys came over and yet none put two and two together. However I will say, after our waitress did come over she was great the rest of the night. The food was fantastic and had no complaints in that department.
