Book your next event with us
Need to book at 3:30 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Regina is amazing. The managers always recognize me so it feels like home. Just a great place for me after work. Will always come back and always tell others!!
The service great and food was decent, but it was hard to actually enjoy anything with the drunken people at the bar yelling and screaming the whole time. What was worse is the bartender kept feeding them shots and at one point was taking shots with them. I get it, it’s DTLA I live here so I know, but this isn’t a bar or a sports bar and it was only around 8:30. Sad because I liked the menu and the art, but probably won’t go back.
If you do go, the squash and the corn are excellent.
overpriced food. good service. maybe happy hour worth it but definitely not normal menu
Not like the old days in Santa Monica unfortunately. Quality of the food was not what I had expected or hoped for.
Over the years, this has been one of our favorite downtown spots for a creative south-of-the-border menu. The last few times we've been here, at least one in our party was disappointed. The service is friendly and attentive enough, but seems the wait staff and kitchen are having a hard time coordinating getting a hot entree to the table while it's still hot. This has happened several times. Flavors are still great. Hope they can get thier issues worked out.
Incredible meal! We'll be back whenever we are in LA!
Food Quality has fallen
Space is not warm or welcoming
The food is consistently good and delicious. Can't go wrong with any of their menu items.
I have always loved Border Grill, so sad to report that the food was mediocre and also way too spicy - the server said mild to medium, but it was hotter than that. Soup was tepid. Table cleaner brought half-eaten food plate from another Table to ours, stacked soup bowls that were still half-filled on top of one another which resulted in soup splashed on table and then put dish from the other table on top. Yuck.
Food was okay for the prices I had a party of 15 and we did not have a lot of hot food being served as apps. Other then that it was great service and we had a good time
Food & service was great. Call if you're going after 8pm because they close early if its slow.
The food here is outstanding! The staff was very friendly as well.
First time checking them out and we loved it. Brunch was delicious, service was great and the place itself is beautiful. Can’t wait to come back!
Carina was great and enjoyable
AYCE border brunch was so delicious. Service was awesome too.
Loved the Sweet Potato veggie lettuce wrapped tacos!! The flavor profile was delicious. The guacamole was tasty plus with the addition of the fresh crispy chips. I definitely took my guacamole home but I ate all 3 tacos!
Great menu and able to accommodate gluten free.
Great service. Great tacos. Loved how they let you mix and match the tacos
The food was good, but my stomach was very upset later in the afternoon. I also didn't realize we had to pay for chips and salsa. I thought that was a little annoying.
Everything was great. Our server the best!!! Love Border Grille flavorful food!
Vegan and gluten-free Sunday brunch, unlimited delicious tapas-size plates, friendly service! More than we’d hoped for!! Followed by a short walk to the Broad Museum.
Service was excellent. Food was not good...enchilada tortillas were hard and flavor was bland. We were very disappointed as food was good when I went there 5 years ago.
I haven’t been in a while since it isn’t in a neighborhood I’m usually in, but friend in town staying nearby so a perfect opportunity to get over there again. Cool place, great food and great drinks.
I’d been to BG early on in their original Santa Monica location... was looking forward to a return these many years later... tried for lunch last week: slow service but good meal: ceviche duo. Made open table reservation for dinner with my husband a few nights later ... a private event in the back room kept us up near bar... a sports/tv environment we don’t prefer. The private event was outrageously loud and raucous... we couldn’t even talk ... perhaps there could have been some notation about that going on before my booking? The drinks were good ... the chicken enchiladas came out of the kitchen barely room temp to us... but we were eager to eat and leave the noise... so didn’t send back ... manager did take half off the bill... and he kindly brought me some black beans ... service is accommodating... food good when kitchen more attentive... noise level ridiculous for any not part of the party
This was a great spot that we stumbled on just looking for a quick bite and cocktail before a concert. Not being from the area, we searched on Open Table for spots near the venue. Indoor and outdoor seating options were available and we chose to sit outside which had a great vibe. Perfect weather and not much background noise. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. We were a group of 7 and would go back again if we were in the area.
Food was ok at best. Actually you might be better off eating off of a food truck. Service absolutely sucked.
The tortilla soup was Luke warm & spicy, which it’s not supposed to be. The rice & beans were tepid. And it was virtually impossible to find the fish in my fish tacos. What a waste of $.
I would Like to work in border grill and I will recommend this restaurant to my family.
Great place for brunch. Lots of choices on food and drinks. The servers are fast, helpful and nice.
Just fabulous. As good as Las Vegas. The best brunch you’ll find and such a value. Loved it again!
I really enjoy this restaurant. The food was not quite as good as it has been in past years. But still very good. I love the ambiance. The service was good.
Pablo was an amazing server, great food, drinks, and energy!
Perfect birthday meal
Good, tasty food and always good service. Not too pricey either.
Employees are attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and friendly. Great experience!
Food quality compared to the Last Vegas location was very poor, with only one of the brunch items we tasted worth ordering seconds.
Food was fantastic but service on a slow Saturday evening was poor.
Great food and location.
Love, love, love the Border Grill!
Only problem was the directions to the parking garage didn’t match our GPS route and that was frustrating.
