    Mexican and chinese food....how can there not be more of these places. Staff was very knowledgeable, We went with a group of six and we didn't actually order. We just asked the waiter to bring us something great and he definitely did. He also brought us a good amount of food.

    The only negative I would say is that the cost for multiple plates adds up. Other than that it was great.

    Neither of the two cuisines contained many familiar items. It was like a tapas restaurant with limited selections of Chinese or Mexican themed dishes. Food was quite good, though I've had better pozole in several other places. It was a good diversion from usual restaurant choices.

    Food was terrific and lots of choices - good for groups of people with different tastes, from carnivores to vegans. Very noisy if the restaurant is full. You order ala carte, and dishes arrive in a rather haphazard order and mostly one at a time. Our table had 6 or 7 dishes, but the fried rice arrived last. It would have been better had it accompanied some of the other dishes. Apparently it is impossible to ask for this service, although we tried. All the dishes were delicious and they are fun to share. My husband loved the eggplant dish that our guest ordered, and I've never seen him eat eggplant before - maybe he didn't know what it was. Brightly lit and noisy, so not for romantic dinners or quiet conversations.

    This was my second visit to this restaurant. The first time was with my husband; we sat at the counter and had a good experience. This time around I was with a group of 6 for a friends birthday. Took forever for the waiter to come to table, got our food before drinks, waited 20 minutes for dessert. Three managers were milling around the entire time and never came by to ask how things were going. I was embarrassed that I had picked this restaurant for our group - truly a disaster.

    For an dinner before a show, this proved to be a great spot. Service is prompt but our server was a bit scatter brained. "Air salt" margarita is the best - had to have one for the road! Small plates are not that small and food is reasonably priced. Drinks are expensive!

    Though the food was very good and inventive, the prices points are very high for what you get. Expect to pay ~5x what you would get for basic good Tacos or dim sum elsewhere.

    I don't consider myself a cheap person, in fact I am a physician. However, as a local I want to try every restaurant here at least once but I did not realize until I was seated that the menu was pre-fixed. That really didn't give much of a choice but at the end of the day, I will have to say that the service was IMPECCABLE and the food was amazing in appearance and presentation. I didn't really leave completely full haha but maybe I should have had more wine ;)

    Jose Andres' "low end" place is well worth a visit. A little expensive but where else can you eat tasty shu mai right along with a duck tongue taco. The concept works and the food pairs well together despite being from different sides of the globe. Every dish was good, stand out was the 20 vegetable fried rice. Service was a bit rushed but solid and our server gave us excellent beverage recommendations to pair with the unique cuisine.

    China Poblano is a unique fusion of Chinese dim sum and Mexican street food that has been elevated to an extremely delicious level. The interplay between the flavors is wonderful and the tapas/dim sum style allows for a wide sampling of dishes. Don't miss dessert here! The bar list is extensive but most people come for the unique margaritas. The service is attentive without being overbearing and the food was delivered quickly. One of the best places I have found in a city with tons of culinary gems.

    This place made me think of all the times you have a hard time deciding what to eat.. Will it be Mexican or Chinese! How about both!! I probably ordered all of the Mexican menu. All the tacos, salsa , drinks, posole and chilaquiles were amazing! Fast service and excellent food!!

    Invited a business colleague to stay inside the hotel: concept sounded appealing. Disappointed at walking in. Seats like ottomans: no backs. Service spotty. Food itself - fair. Worse: because of mix of concepts, have three kitchens...so they tell you upfront there will be no coordination or prediction about which food comes out when. Sure enough - everyone's primary plate came at random and long apart times. Terrible idea. Large groups of teens/young 20's pour in due to low prices. Noisy.

    If you're looking for some awesome food and a reasonably quick meal I'd definitely make a stop here. The food was fantastic. Get the Golden Pigs for sure. The waitress described them as sweet and savory which was a great description although with the sauce more sweet than savory. You could seriously eat them for dessert!

    This is a very interesting restaurant. I'm not sure the whole Mexican/Chinese fusion thing is really thought through enough, but it was pretty good. Some dishes really yummy, some not so much (Dancing Eggplant in the second category, though it was a cool-looking dish). The Salt Air Margarita was delicious.

    Our waitress handled a table of 10, without missing step. She even made paying the bill a dream. I wasn't sure what to expect, but had dined at Bazaar and Jaleo previously and knew that Jose Andreas would not disappoint. I loved seeing the open & separate kitchens for Mexican and Chinese food. Some of our group ate all over the menu, other's picked just one side to stick to. Everyone enjoyed!

    Wanted to try this restaurant because at first glance it seemed to be reasonably cost effective. But, didn't figure out that it was more of a tapas type of restaurant where most of the 'expensive' selections were small. Luckily I had a salad and queso dip, so got plenty of food even with the small lobster taco that I got as a splurge ($10 for 1 taco...really?) The food was pretty good and the service as well. Loved the concept of going to a place that I could get Mexican food and my partner Chinese. So, as with any Vegas restaurant if you're willing to pay the cost this ones okay. I'd suggest going across the street to find better priced restaurants, though.

    The food is visually appealing, but it is evident it is high in sodium after tasting it. Beware: China Poblano pre-authorizes your credit card for about 15% over your bill. I received a highly suspicious reason why they do this...bottom line...not acceptable. Check your CC immediately to see if your were "tagged".

    The menu was less than appetizing. The food was just ok. Had a little bit of everything, good to share but not worth the prices. I was expecting more from the Cosmopolitan. Ordered a Michelada to drink, that was the best part of the entire meal and the churros for dessert. Service was great and food came out quick just overall left feeling like I was stuffed with less than average food.
