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

Enjoyed the food and good service. We dined on the patio which is next to the service path around the hotel and service vehicles drove by during our meal within 2 feet of our table. Sit inside or away from the service path.

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

I have been thinking about the chips, salsa and guacamole every hour, since about 10 minutes after I left the restaurant. Of course, dinner was good too, and the drinks!

Food and service - excellent. Only issue was that we ordered a dish to be prepared without mushrooms (which the server confirmed would not be a problem). It came out with the mushrooms. Would have sent back but were on a schedule to see a show...when we mentioned upon her return, she apologized. It would have gone a long way if she had offered a free dessert or comped dessert.

First of all I ordered the wrong thing in a Mexican restaurant The Sea Bass was served over rice and some vegetables it had spice but overall bland and not visually appealing the Butternut squash had little sweetness and also lacked flavor an overall average meal that wasn’t cheap!!!

Food was not unique, tasty or special. I was really surprised given the chefs. The room looked dated too and the host seemed disinterested in helping us. Seems shabby.

Vegas is known for having expensive food options, and often times it's not even good food. Border Grill - though slightly more expensive than I am used to paying for Mexican food - is incredible. I always get the skirt steak done medium rare and it never disappoints. Our waitress even got us free corn appetizers just for coming back! Amazing food, amazing ambiance, and the view is great. I'll be back again.

Our waiter knew the menu well and gave great recommendations as well as a history of the restaurant. We appreciated the charity/social awareness of the restaurant, donating funds to developing countries. Street corn was spicy but delicious and the al pastor tacos were amazing- a burst of flavor in every bite.

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!

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.
