We chose the restaurant because it was close to our show venue and had eaten there before. It did not disappoint! Due to show tickets, our time was limited but the server got us in and moving lickity split. One of my favorite dishes, Duck chilaquilles , is now only on the brunch menu (must try!) but the waitress suggested something else and it was spot on yummy! My friend had a drink that she slurped up because it was so tasty. This place really is a gem.

The food here is extremely mediocre, which is surprising considering the Top Chef celebrity chefs who headline this place. The ceviche isn’t marinated at all- it’s drenched in a sauce that completely overpowers the fish. And the queso fundido is just melted cheese. The wait staff were lovely though. Unfortunately this doesn’t overcome the fact that if you need to use the restroom, you have to go outside of the restaurant, down the long staircase and down the hall to use the restrooms designated for the hotel’s conference rooms. It’s ridiculous. Won’t come back again for this reason alone.

The bold and lively flavor profiles that once defined this brand has been lost in the repetitive translation over the years. The Ceviche and the cocktails were decent but the Chile Relleno Duo was dreadful. I have dined at all if the Border Grill locations in LA and LV but this location needs an infusion of energy, a new menu and a makeover. The upstairs patio seating with its plastic table cloths, bad lighting and tired chairs felt more like dining in a mall food court. Oh well... it’s had its run I suppose.

Quality of food is declining. A lot of our dishes were coming out cold. No more bread basket for brunch like before. Now they serve one guava empanada per guest. Service was good. Micheladas were delicious. Sad Ceaser’s location closed. Quality of food was top notch-tasty, warm, fast and presentable.

Our entire experience was spectacular from start to finish. We had the most amazing, bright, friendly and knowledgeable server named Sarah. We weren't blown away upon entering and being seated, but the second Sarah arrived at the table and greeted us, all of us were thrilled. She guided us through making wonderful food and beverage selections and it's a true testament that an excellent server can make or break a meal - SHE WAS PERFECTION! We were all happy with our meals and margaritas thanks to her thoughtful selections based on our likes and dislikes.

This was our last dinner together in Vegas as a group of eight and Border Grill delivered!

Thanks so much to the staff and especially to Sarah - keep up the amazing work!

Border Grill's brunch is always amazing! You can easily spend 2 hours at this restaurant and you are never rushed out. The brunch has amazing selections and you can also order bottomless mimosas for an added, low price. The servers are friendly and everyone treats you like an invited guest. I also highly recommend sitting on the patio during those beautiful Vegas days. Thank you for a great time!

The concept seems cool with all you can eat tapas for brunch. However, it took forever to get the food and when it did come out, the food was cold. Our server wasn’t attentive. I think he forgot about our table bc we were literally waiting around for 20 min after he said he will be right back to take our order. I had to flag down the manger because we were forgotten about. The manger was nice and asked if we wanted to order food. AT that time we were over it. Having worked in the food industry, we are SUPER patient and I get when it gets busy things happen but it wasn’t busy at all.. I will not be returning or recommending this place to friends.

As the owner and operator of Restaurant Consultants of Las Vegas I have to say that I was extremely impressed wit the overall execution of dinner. The food was fresh and extremely flavorful. The service was impeccable for such a moderately low price point. You could actually taste the tequila (local's know what I'm talking about) in the Blood Orange martini which was delightfully balanced. we will definitely be back!
