We were a little disappointed by Border Grill. When they sat us, the table was dirty. One of our plates was dirty and one of our glasses was chipped. In these pandemic times cleanliness is important. The food and service was great but we will not be returning.

We got the unlimited tapa plates $45. Might be a bit pricey but the experience was great. Got to try everything on the menu except dessert. And then got more of the ones we did like. Service was outstanding.
Yes I would go there again and order the same unlimited tapa plates

Tasty, worth visiting for sure, the Carne asada, the salsa everything was delicious, the black were hard and besides coffee I didn’t see other options (besides alcohol) and a place like that should have maybe a bomb hot chocolate or something

Border grill has been our go to brunch spot every year for our yearly girls reunion. Unfortunately, this year our experience was terrible. Ben was our server and forgot to place our order multiple times and every time our order did make it to the table, items we ordered were missing. Our first round of tapas arrived in a timely manner, second round, felt like it took over 30 min. Unexceptionable! After that, everything just went downhill. We did voice our concerns to one of the managers -skinny, bald gentleman, whom didn't seem very willingly to rectify the situation. Unfortunately, we will not be returning.

Service was great. Food exceptional. Came for brunch, all plates were well seasoned with nothing "toned down." Flavorful, full portions, and wonderful service. Well worth the price.

OMG!!!! This is my favorite restaurant. I have been there several times and never disappointed. The food is FABULOUS and I highly recommend the endless small plate buffet. There is not one complaint other than I was I could have eaten more. I wish there was one closer to home.

The bad thing is we started our meal before 1130 on a Sun and the floor under the table was covered with broken pieces of chips. There were not that many there and we had made a reservation.😐

The food and service was amazing! Sat outside which was enjoyable! Only frustration was the smokers whom walk the adjacent path/road. Obviously smoking is everywhere in Vegas, but don't love inhaling it while eating :( Would definitely dine here again!

Birthday Party dinner. Ernesto and crew gave excellent attention. Great suggestions on meals. Portions were more than adequate and pricing was very good, especially compared to other Las Vegas Strip restaurants. Excellent value.

We thought we would just have a nice Mexican dinner after a day at the Mandalay Bay Beach but this was so much more. Brisket Barbacoa was phenomenal, carnitas, fish tacos and carne asada quesadilla were equally good.

Highly recommend eating here!

The small plate menu is back for Weekend Brunch, so we reserved an outdoor table, which is located next to Mandalay Lazy River.

We ordered a variety of excellent small plates (french toast, pancakes, steak & eggs, ceviche tostada, etc.) which are all-you-can-eat. We added the bottomless bloody and mimosa special. Our server/bartender Stephanie was the best!

Highly recommended.

After seeing the chefs on a Netflix series, we decided to give this restaurant a try. It was a complete letdown. Food was good, but nothing great, and two of our dishes were cold or barely warm. Atmosphere was nice and the service was great.

This is usually a favorite of mine for brunch but every time we are seated downstairs we never get service timely . Our waitress was great but we had to wait almost TWO HOURS for our first round of food . We then watched other parties get two rounds of food before our second round came and it wasn’t even everything we asked for. The guy admitted that they hadn’t made our stuff so he just grabbed plates and gave them to us . We were there over 3 hours and finally left unsatisfied . Luckily it was bottomless mimosas but without the food I was scared to indulge .

Outdoor patio chosen for covid protection, but seeing the indoor space it could also work. Outdoor area is a concrete balcony, really loud music, every other table families with kids -- totally fine, maybe even smart so they could relax without other customers getting bothered. Just made it loud.

Food was usual border grill. Service was pretty poor, our server had tables inside and then us, so we were ignored mostly. When she was there she was nice and attentive, but I had to get up and go inside twice to find her.

Still, solid spot.

It was good, be careful on the taco appetizer, one of the 3 tacos had a toothpick in it, I showed the server and he laughed, then brushed it off. Apparently someone getting stabbed in the mouth is funny.
