    Excellent food and service. They opened early on a Friday nite to accommodate us attending the IHeart Radio Festival. They placed those of us with reservations in a quiet area of the restaurant and delivered our dinner quickly.

    We had been here before and very much looked forward to eating here again. Unfortunately we dined there on fight night and due to all the people hanging around outside the restaurant the noise level was incredible. We found the food to be good but not great. The margarita's were fabulous though.

    Service good, but food was poor. It is not close to being authentic Mexican. I think the quest fundido was made with Monterrey jack cheese, yuck! Salsa and chips need salt. Mole was ok.

    You can't go wrong here. Everything we had was very good. Sides were quite numerous and delicious. Salads were presented very nicely and quite tasty. We all had different kinds of steaks, and they were all prepared as ordered and had tremendous flavor and were very tender. Desserts were a wee expensive, but oh so good. When we try here again (after sampling a few other places in town) I would probably skip the salad, because with the sides, you get plenty to eat, and I would pass on dessert because I don't really need the extra calories. But, for this time, it was a celebration, and we wanted to try quite a bit of the menu. By all means, dine here and enjoy.

    Dined on 9/4/2013
    Once I saw that Diego had hand made tamales on its menu, I had to eat here. The table side guacamole was the best - you can choose ingredients such as small amount of onions. They had sundried tomatoes instead of regular tomatoes, which I hate so I had no tomatoes(they should offer regular tomatoes - my only minor gripe). the beef tamales were the best topped with mole sauce. And my wife had the chicken fajitas which had plenty of peppers (some places give you mostly oninons and a couple of peppers. The Cadillac margherita was great.

    The food was very tasty and the service friendly, but we were underwhelmed given that the restaurant in included in the MGM's fine dining listings. It was very good casual Mexican, but not up to par with other serious dining options on the Strip.

    Went here prior to a show to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was good and the kitchen was very accommodating in preparing something a certain way. The waiter was friendly and provided good service. The sangria was just alright, we've had better in the past. They did give my wife a free flan dessert with a candle in it and sang happy birthday, which was very nice. The overall decor was just a bit too red for our liking. Overall it was an average dining experience.

    I visit Las Vegas twice a year for work and always make sure I eat here. Incredibly accommodating of my vegan lifestyle. It's very hard to stick to find a great restaraunt in Las Vegas that gives me the same top notch dining experience as my carnivore counterparts. The service is always fantastic and the atmosphere is very pleasant after a long day of work. Make sure you get the table side guacamole , a must have!

    The only down side to Diego is the location - inside the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The food and restaurant were absolutely outstanding. The noise and rudeness of the people in the hotel were the only thing that detracted from a truly great meal.

    Food was average. Ordered a pitcher of Sangria was so loaded with soda couldn't really taste the wine. The guacamole at table side was the best part of dinner. Tacos and burrito were slapped together in a few minutes and was lukewarm. For the price it was an average meal.

    Dined on 8/10/2013
    We saw the Executive Chef of Diego on Food Network's 'Chopped', and liked her style. When we saw it was located in MGM near where we annually stay, we had to visit. We were absolutely blown away. Everything about the meal was outstanding: From our delightful waiter and his expert suggestions, to the killer margaritas, to the delicious food we just cannot say a bad thing about it. My combo platter was perfect, but I must note the halibut fish tacos were the best I have ever eaten. No kidding. We are SO glad we saw that episode of 'Chopped'!

    We were looking for good chips, salsa and margaritas, and this place didn't disappoint. Our group of four shared two pitchers of the Frida margarita and two servings of the tableside guacamole (which was the highlight of the meal). I also had the steak fajitas, which were very good. It was a little pricey, but it is on the Strip, so that's about what you'd expect.

    Loved our anniversary/birthday celebration at Diego's! The Colada Classico was the best colada I have ever tasted! The same goes for the tortilla soup and the chicken, prepared wonderfully with the best mole sauce! Absolutely wonderful dining experience. And the staff was exceedingly thoughtful and kind.

    If you want really good authentic Mexican food go to Diego and ask for server Dana. Dana is great she is friendly and helpful. The food will knock your socks off. the service is great, they have one person filling your water, one filling your chips, and one person makes the guacamole at your table ***the best you'll ever have*** try the cochinita pivill, chicken mole, or carne asada, you wont regret it. We will be back.

    We dined at Diego's about an hour before a UFC fighting event. Our table overlooked the excitement and made our meal feel extra special. Our server was seasoned, informed and able to answer any question about the menu or the casino area. Food was all very good although the most of the combo rivera was served lukewarm instead of hot. Guacamole was good although we weren't fond of the tons of dried tomatoes in it. It made the guac tough and chewy. Colorado chili was superbly flavored and the meat was super tender. All food items were of excellent quality and expertly prepared. Cocktails were delicious and everything was reasonably priced for a Las Vegas casino.

    My husband and I flew into Las Vegas on the 4th for our 10 year anniversary. We hit up Diego's around 9pm. The wait staff was still energetic and very pleasant even though it was the end of the night. The margarita's are made from scratch and fabulous. The table side guacamole was great too. At the end of the night our waiter surprised us with a happy anniversary flan desert at our table. Great meal! We will dine with them again.

    The food is good, standard Mexican selections. The guacamole was really good and so was the sangria. The prices are crazy though, our meal for 2 was $125 with 2 drinks 1 appetizer and 2 entres. Could easily get this level of food and service in Chicago for $60-$75. Thats Vegas I guess.

    We were early for a 6pm Reservation and the hostess kindly seated us. We sat on the patio to people watch and because the music inside is a bit loud if you want to visit during dinner. The food was full of flavor. I highly recommend the Chicken Tortilla Soup. I gave a 3 for service because after bringing chips and salsa it was a while before they brought water to our table and throughout dinner we had to flag someone down for more water. Other than that we had an enjoyable dinner.

    Restaurant was 20 mins late seating us due to lack of staff to bus tables we were told. Food was completely worth the wait!!! So delicious and good portions. Lower rating for waitstaff is because though VERY attentive, we felt a little swindled by the waiter when he brought a gigantic margarita for one small girl in our party. When she ordered, he did not explain it's size at all and when we all reacted to the surprise with overwhelming disappointment, he defended his service and still charged her $25 for the sips she could muster!

    We are from Tucson, the Mexican food capital, so we didn't expect outstanding food. We were pleasantly surprised. The food here is excellent. Great flavor, generous portions and very attractive presentation. I had the Pescatore Veracruz and my husband had the braised short ribs chili. We did not want to order the usual tacos or enchiladas. The fish was halibut and grilled to perfection, It was moist, fresh and flaky and had a wonderful cilantro and caper sauce with vegetables. My husband said the flavors in the meat chili were delicious and he had several large chunks of beef. His was served with warm tortillas also. We each had a drink, one wonderful sangria and one beer with a side of tequila. We will return!
