    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.

    Love the weekend brunch! It is a must on our trips to Vegas. The food and service has always been outstanding. If anyone likes southwest and can't make brunch........ lunch and dinner are also worth a visit. Don't laugh, but a must try is Bacon Jalapeno PBJ and The churro Tots as a sweet ending....

    We come here about once a month, and the entire experience is very consistent, visit to visit. Food is always very fresh and flavorful, and rivals any other place on The Strip or anywhere else in LV Valley. Service is fast and reliable. The people give off a vibe they are happy to see you--we always feel welcomed. Cant recommend highly enough...this is our favorite Mexican restaurant.

    First we were sat outside. Not asked if we wanted to. In 100+ degree weather. The staff kept bringing us water with no ice. The lights went out so we could not see what we were eating. The food was horrible. Not one person in my party actually finished their meal. Service rarely returned to check on us. I will not eat there again

    We dined here for my birthday on Monday, August 18th. This place is wonderful. The food was incredible and the service outstanding. We ordered guacamole for starters, then had the pork and beef tacos. I can't say enough good things about this place. They also have specialty lemonades which were delicious. I would certainly return to this restaurant when IK am back in Vegas.

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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
