Was disappointed that the food didn’t reach our table hot. The children’s chicken sliders were fried so hard and was very hard for our 9 year old had trouble eating them. Because it was Border Grill, I expected more.

We went for brunch. The menu was unlimited small plates. Overall the flavor of the food was great. However, service was lacking. We had to ask for our drinks and salt / pepper multiple times before receiving them. Our server was not attentive and that resulted in long waits between ordering more food. I would return back for dinner or lunch but not brunch. The value didn't seem to be there.

Was staying at the Mandalay Bay for a birthday and saw Derek @ All You Can Vegas do a few reviews on the Border Grill Brunch. Small plates, shareable, Mike our server was attentive and hospitable. He was running the entire outside patio where we sat. Out last selections came out late, but Mike packed it up for us to go. Favorites - potato taco, pancake, steak and eggs, French fries.

Restaurant was filthy. Ambience was horrible. Patron margarita tasted like cleaner. Sangria tasted like melted fruit snacks. Ceviche and guac were great but plantains were stale and not crispy. Went there because of the chef show on Netflix. Rate 1.6 out of 10. Won’t go back. Champagne that they served for our anniversary was actually warm in a freshly washed hot champagne glass.

Our server was darling and made good menu suggestions. We were dining outside and could have had our drinks refreshed a bit more frequently. It was a nice environment, but my son was a bothered by a pigeon throughout our meal. The tacos were great. We had the shrimp & chorizo, and a prime rib taco with manchego grits that was shockingly good. The plantain empanadas were unique and fantastic. Prices were reasonable for Vegas. I would definitely eat here again!

Food was excellent, highly recommend chips and trio salsa for $4. Mahi tacos wonderful.
Expected to have a pool view, so was a little disappointed in the lack of atmosphere and view.

Unfortunately our meal was VERY disappointing especially for how pricey it was our meats were incredibly dry.
The steak taco's where so dry I was had to eat it with a fork to find the plumper pieces..at 24.00 for 3 tacos 🥴 our rice and beans was very crunchy and nothing worse than under cooked rice and beans. My husband's chicken quesadilla was very dry also..his was 25.00 with rice and beans....we went on a Sunday maybe not a good day maybe using of what was left over from the weekend..
So sad I was a huge fan from the cooking network and couldn't wait to try the restaurant...so disappointed 😞!!!

I visited on Mother’s Day for Dinner. It was not busy and fairly quiet. I was impressed with our food. The Vampiro Shrimp was amazing! We had a large party with family that wasn’t sure of the menu. Waitress was short borderline rude and we were going to request a different waitress or leave. We spoke to a gentleman super nice and he said she is all we have she is working a double let me talk to her. I work at a restaurant and somedays long and I get it but we can’t loose the focus that the customer needs to be valued. She changed her attitude second half of the meal. We still tipped her a good amount because she was working a long day and to show her that we matter and tip goes based on service we receive.

It was Mother’s Day do you think they would have enough staff on and management present as many tables sat unbussed and one of our parties entree came out first but waited awhile for everything else. Hostess & Bartender very friendly, waiter did not crack a smile
