Took 30 mins to get seated with a reservation because they had “no tables available”?? Food was great, service was not. Sat in bar area like advised to by hostess, took 15 mins to get acknowledged there while we saw others getting seated before us. Only one server handling every table in the bar! Poor girl. Once we finally got seated, our server ended up being great though.

We were a little stressed about getting to the Michael Jackson “ONE” show, however, our waiter was ON IT! He reassured us our food would get there promptly and it did. The food was delicious. I had the chicken tacos. The chips and salsa......YUMMY! All in all, I highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been a fan of mary sue milliken and susan feniger for years and years. Lots of healthy options, with interesting flavors and perfect preparation. Recommending Vegas restaurants on on the strip is difficult because you pay a premium for the location, but the food is worth the disadvantages.

Although it's my first time here at Border Grill, I have heard good things before coming here and my experience did not disappoint. The chips and saucer tasted so fresh and yummy and we asked for 2 bowls. I only hope we had a larger party so that we could have ordered more dishes to try. I will be back!

Whenever I am in Las Vegas, I eat at border grill. From the chips and salsa, fresh tortillas, great entrees. The margaritas are great also.

I love Rick Bayless’s food but we were disappointed. The patio outside was very loud even at half capacity, with harsh lighting and wierd brown plastic-covered dining tables that looked like something you’d get at a super low end taqueria. Guacamole was great and food was generously portioned even on the “small plates” but I definitely wouldn’t return.

The hostess made the four of us sit at a 4-seater table stuck in the corner away from the 3 available window tables despite my asking twice to sit at one of them instead of in the corner (one person was literally in the corner). She said that those 4-seater tables were held in case they needed to put them together for bigger parties. However 5 minutes later, she sat 3 people at the middle available 4-seater voiding her excuse of keeping those 3 tables free for combining into a larger table...

Disappointing. Ceviche was poor; very little fish. Didn't taste very fresh. Mojitos seemed like they had been batched up in advance on ice and a lot of the ice had melted (very "water-y" drinks). Fish tacos had sautéed fish...grilled fish would've been much better. Shredded pork entrée was pretty good. Guac was great. Waiters were attentive but overall the food (except for the guac) was disappointing.

Food was great and server was attentive. Purchased water is a bit odd and would have been nice to choose still or sparkling. My group was poured sparkling and would have preferred still.

The service and food was wonderful. There was some maintenance going on while we were there that included a very noisy beeping from the scissor lift they were using that was quite annoying. Otherwise, a great dinner.

Other than getting an email that said we didn’t show it was great. We were about 15 minutes late but called 30 minutes prior to say we’d be about 15 late, they said no problem

We've been to the Border Grill at Mandalay Bay several times in the past but this visit was a let down. The inside space was impossibly noisy so we asked to be moved outside. This was better, however the service wasn't great. It was clear the staff just wanted us to vacate the table as soon as possible as our mains arrived as we were trying to finish our starters. Overall then things were hurried and we were only in the restaurant for 45 minutes. Consequently we've decided we won't be going again.

Did not like the open chile relleno with the vegies and the cheese of the other Chile was very salty. I think the cheese chile relleno should have Jack Cheese.. The enchiladas poblanos were ok, I have had better. Although we earlier that day and had ceviche and that was delicious.

Food was amazing. We had the tapas style small brunch plates and everything was SO good. Louis was our server, and he had a fresh round of (bottomless) mimosas ready for us as soon we we were done with the prior round. He was extremely friendly, had great recommendations and was a wonderful server. Highly recommend the brunch, drinks and our server! Couldn’t have asked for a better brunch.

I have been here previously, and loved it. It was as good as before. Great service, great food. Everyone in my party loved it. The chips and three kinds of salsa, were the best I ever had. The restau sent over a appetizer on the house which was a class act. Then I had Skirt Steak, which was also excelllent. Can’t wait to go back.

I was impressed with the menus offerings and how the staff handled the hustle and bustle. The only suggestion I would have is that the person passing around the chips and salsa, provide the diner with a silverware roll up and small plate if there is none on the table. Otherwise it gets messy. Ryan was amazing once things slowed down. He was slammed! But I could empathize. I was just so hungry when I arrived. It was along walk from the strip.
