A word from Cabo Wabo Cantina Las Vegas
Please note: NO RESERVATIONS are made for PATIO SEATING, this is on a first come, first serve basis. All reservations are for the indoor Cantina.

Sammy Hagar’s hard rockin’ dining and live music venue combines the laid-back beach-town vibe of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with the excitement of the Las Vegas Strip. Blending coastal Mexican and Tex Mex cuisine, the menu offers a tantalizing mix of flavorful food, killer margaritas and an awesome venue where it is never uncommon to catch the Red Rocker himself jamming out with a live set on stage. Cabo Wabo Cantina opens daily at 8 a.m.

    Cabo Wabo was fun and energetic with good service and large portions. .. which you paid for! We sat out on the patio where we could watch the strip and the Bellagio fountains & hear the live music! There is a decent Group offer up now for cabo so grab that and enjoy!

    I have been here several times because the view of the bellagio water show is great but service is consistently poor, food is average and drinks are not up to par. Lastly don't expect your reservation to mean much. I have had to wait for at least 15 minutes when arriving and on one occasion they did not have any record of reservation even with showing them confirmation from open table.

    Went with business colleagues during a trade show - in Planet Hollywood - on a Monday night and it was pretty empty - food was good - a little pricey for Mexican, but a bargain by today's LVNV restaurant prices - shrimp fajitas were very good - 10 shrimp for $25.00 (October 2014); 21oz. Blue Moon was $13.00 - but you can keep the plastic pilsner glass if you want. (We didn't). There is an outdoor seating area that has a partial view of the Bellagio Fountain Water Show, but not real close. Service was very good and our server was great. Good choice for casual dining in the middle of the Strip.

    Have been here many times but this was special as I had 2 other couples and it was their first time in Vegas. Requested 6 seats on the rail overlooking the strip. Always a hard seat to get as it is one of the best views in Vegas. The staff followed up with a text then a phone call to confirm and had the seats ready for us as soon as we got there. What fun and a special treat! Thanks so much for the best visit yet.

    This is a perfect place for people watching on the strip. We sat on the patio facing the strip and had nonstop entertainment during our meal. Our margaritas were wonderfully refreshing and the Chicken Quesadillas were better than I have ever had anywhere else. Don't expect to have a conversation when you are there because it is LOUD, between the DJ, the TV, the people.... I loved it though!

    Shrimp tacos are the best I've had outside of Mexico and the Jack and Coke Burger was perfect. It was already a great night and then to top it off we Met Aaron Hagar and then Sammy himself walked in. A night to remember for sure. Highly recommend it.

    We came for late evening drinks and snacks after watching the Bellagio Fountain show. The patio area was hopping but the inside was pretty dead. Lot of current music being played but not a single Sammy Hagar tune. Not much of a 'rock n roll' vibe at all.

    I've been to Vegas 5 times in the past 5 years, and this is the only restaurant I regularly return to (usually multiple times per trip). Great view of the Bellagio fountains from the patio, the music played is fantastic, the servers have always been friendly, and best of all... the food is great! Especially the Nacho Platter w/ Grilled Chicken!

    This was my first visit to Cabo Wabo in Las Vegas and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. My wife and I ordered two drinks (can't recall what they were) and they were both delicious. My wife does not like to taste the alcohol in drinks, and her coconut/rum drink was very smooth. Mine on the other hand made my eyes spin, and that was a good thing. We ordered the appetizer platter, the chicken tortilla soup and split the lobster enchiladas. The platter was a nice combination of wings, quesadillas, chicken taquitos and two other items. Quesadillas were a bit lame, but if you bring kids they will like them. The soup was the best! The broth is poured at the table over the chicken. Nice touch. And the lobster was fresh.

    This is apparently THE place for late night dining in Vegas. the place was packed at 10pm but our table was ready and we got to sit on the patio overlooking the Strip (in the day cooled by mist). Our server changed midway thru but both were nice, friendly and pretty fast considering how crowded the place was. Live band was good and added to the fun atmosphere. Food was all uniformly good although not great or special. Typical Mexican fare, large portions and cooked properly. We enjoyed the Cheese crisps, the Short Rib Enchiladas and the Chicken enchiladas. All were good. The Margaritas were excellent - large and strong. We had quite a good time - prices are high but not compared to others on the Strip.

    Food was good but not great, and the portions are pretty small. Drinks are way overpriced. I love CW tequila but it's not worth a $42 pitcher of Margie's. Service is very good but there is better Mexican food in Vegas. The original in a Cabo puts this one to shame. Also a $20 cover for UFC with these drink prices is criminal.

    With it being cinco de mayo, and being a Sammy Hagar fan my wife and I thought it would be the place to be. WRONG! First problem was there were 2 birthday parties going on in the small restaurant area. The staff decided to sit us in the middle of them. One was for a young child it felt like we were at Chuck E Cheese.THE worst part was our waitress, it seems she wanted to be part of the birthday party instead of taking care of customers. the margaritas we're good food decent but the staff was a joke. Las Vegas is not a place for children. One bright spot was the cashier it the the shower gift shop counter very friendly very helpful.
