Anniversary brunch

Bottomless Mimosas and all you can eat tapas is the best way to go.

Had the BEST BIRTHDAY BRUNCH for my 25 yr old daughter and friends at Border Grill. After a stressful start because they wont seat you unless half of your party is there, and well, young ladies are not always on time… Our server Sierra was a rockstar!! Very crowded and busy- and because we were late we waited about 15-20 mins for them to re-set a table outside. It was worth it. The unlimited small plates were all delicious and we especially liked the steak and eggs. Chicken diablo, shrimp and grits, biscuits and gravy - all were amazing!! Great time, not rushed, and service was on point all around.

One of the best brunch experiences i have ever had. Relaxed, friendly and professional staff and the food was superb. The concept is unlimited small plates so you are served fresh food at your leisure. It is full on gourmet food with complex flavors in each bite. We tried as many things as we could and everything was delicious. Our favorites were the manchego cheese biscuit & gravy, steak and eggs, and peruvian shrimp and grits. If the brunch was this good, i can only imagine that regular dining menu is superb.

I have been going here on nearly every Vegas trip since 2003. Consistently some of the best Mexican food anywhere as well as top notch margaritas. Menu varies and quality remains high. Service is excellent and outdoor dining in October was so very pleasant compared to the summer.

Sitting outside mobbed by pigeons. Landing on table, flying over food. Empty tables with food out would have 5-7 swarming. Disgusting.

Beyond that the food was good. Charging for chips & salsa is an obvious avg check increase play but an annoyance.

Sangria flight was good, food was okay, but experience was overshadowed by the server who was cleaning up the table next to us, dropped the food and ended up spilling all over my guest. They offered a wet towel to help clean up, and that was it. Food and sauce had splattered all over his pants, bag, etc. and not even an apology…

Great service, staff was knowledgeable on the menu. Food tasted great and had plenty of flavor. Left full. A little noisy, wouldve preferred to sit in the sunshine if possible but fresh air was refreshing.

I didn’t do the “Weekend Brunch” where one can gorge on small plates. I had the shredded beef enchiladas. Love the guajillo sauce on top and that they don’t smother them with cheese. Authenticity Mexican at Mandalay Bay by the convention center.

The service was truly excellent! We had brunch. I would pass on chillquiles, since the tortillas are soggy. I would pass on Shrimp cerviche, since it is so tiny and nothing to it. I would not get Lobster one either, since that was disappointing. Steak n Eggs and Peruvian French Toast were our favorites. Everything else was really good. Make a reservation and do your best to be there closer to when restaurant opens or else you’ll be waiting on dishes. We made reservations for 10:15 and food came quickly unlike those we saw arriving almost an hour after us.

We got the brunch. Our first round of dishes came out cold. So we let the server know. She got us another round of plates. And again EVERYTHING was cold. The server took the food away and came back and said , your right that was cold. She was kind and apologetic but for $100 breakfast and sending back 70% of the food, not worth it. Kitchen needs to figure out how to get the food out HOT!

Menu seems to have gotten smaller. Service has also slowed. I know there is a worker shortage but patrons still expect to have prompt and efficient service. We always request outdoor seating but even that was extremely noisy. Dining room was ridiculously loud. We return each Vegas trip to Border Grill. But this will be our last visit.
