Great brunch. Awesome value. Recommended by a local. A bit noisy and a long walk from parking or resort sections, but worth it.

The initial greet was on point. The upstairs bar service was also good. Seating down stairs is where the service started to fail. Once seated there was no service for too long. We flagged down a server to take our order. The area was a little darker than it should have been. No table lighting.

Very good to excellent (in my mind) authentic Mexican cuisine.
Great mezcal mixed drinks.
Our server, Sarah, was nothing short of awesome. We had all kinds of dietary issues around the table of 8 plus one 16 month old infant. Sarah worked with each person who had dietary issues ( at least 3 and possibly 4 at the table) to ensure each order would work. Extremely gracious about check split. Thank you, Sarah!
Very friendly for the 16 month old.
Very noisy downstairs, but once the party of 20 (yes, we counted them) left early into our visit, the noise level was very reasonable.

I've been to Border Grill twice and enjoyed the food both times. First time was for Saturday brunch, and I enjoyed the variety. It wasn't like your usual brunch options. The next time we went for dinner and the waiter suggested the pork, which was very good. The fried plantains were also great, and I couldn't stop eating the chips and salsa.

Too many spicy dishes. Also we were charged for a glass of water for each of us. None of the other restaurants we visited on our weekend in Vegas did this? We had breakfast at Wynn. Dinner at MGM and cocktails in lounges! Even though we ordered cocktails and dinner!!
Totally disappointed in this restaurant to do!!!!

Wow this place has incredible food, service very slow, have to ask a couple of times for same thing. At first hostess asked did we want to sit inside or out, went out, extremely loud from a nearby concert. So sat inside with the AC I swear on 63, had to wear a jacket. But the food, oh my god, is so incredible so worth all that.
We were going to eat at the Mandalay Bay buffet, but saw on Yelp lots of bad reviews.
Tricky to find the Grill, it’s on the walkway between Mandalay and the convention center. Make reservations.

Excellent spot for food, service, and ambiance. When the reservation was made we included a couple of notes about what we were there celebrating. They actually read the notes and brought over a glass of champagne for the bride and another drink for the birthday girl. The manager stopped by as well to give his congratulations and birthday wishes. It really made you feel special. The food was good. Some items were spicier than we anticipated but still tasty nonetheless. Great overall experience.

Visited post theatre as a group of 4 (one vegetarian) plenty of options for all of us. We opted to sit on terrace, the views of the Mandalay beach were lovely. Candice our server was so attentive she came straight over with chips and dips and brought us mojito’s all made fresh and not shy on the rum.. we got fresh guacamole which was without a doubt the best guac any of us had eaten! Main courses were exceptional, all fresh and cooked to order it was beautiful food and we never had empty water glasses or empty chip bowl!! Couldn’t fault any of the food, the staff made such a difference they couldn’t do enough for us and they were so polite! Highly, highly recommend! Thank you

Waited too long for waitress to take order it was likely more than 10 minutes for drinks and then had to catch her attention to pick them up from the bar and 10 minute later and the place wasn’t even that busy.

I ordered a corona and had to ask for line after it was delivered


We ordered an appetizer and she forgot that too.. . She came back to the table after our meals were deleivered and 1/2 eaten to ask how is everything and my wife reminded her we were waiting for the appetizer

She wrote nothing down as we ordered and in my gut I knew she missed the appetizer
