Everything we ate was really delicious.
The portions are not large for sure. I personally appreciate being able to taste multiple dishes, but either way... be aware.

Wanted to check out one of Jose Andres Las Vegas restaurants since I’m a fan of his DC restaurants. The service was prompt, polite, and helpful. Loved the flaca margarita, the chips and salsa, and sticky mango dessert. Liked the taste/flavors of the Dan Dan Mian but think maybe the dish sat too long after plating and before arriving at the table: the noodles were a clumpy, glutinous mass, and almost at room temp.

This restaurant is a very unique combination of Chinese and Mexican food. The menu has so many great options, we wanted to try them all. Our server was a lovely young lady named Ofelia. She helped us narrow down our selections, providing a thorough description of each. Every dish we picked was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant for a unique dining experience.

I've been here several times over the last few years; first couple of times was absolutely amazing...since them it has been in slow decline. This last time was quite disappointing. Menu keeps changing and is less special or inspiring, especially for the price. Food is OK. I had the Dan Dan noodles and the sauce was super gummy. The service also left much to be desired. I have a feeling next year I'll see something different in this spot.

We were a party of 3 having lunch during CES in Las Vegas. Seating is mostly community seating on benches. The dishes are good for sharing. We had Dam Dam noodles, cold Beijing noodles, sui mei assortment, Xailongbau and won ton. The service wasn't great, but admittedly the restaurant was packed for CES.

This was pur second visit. The first time we chose the tasting menu whch was wonderful. This time we ordered from the menu and were not disappointed. The 20 vegetable rice is always a must have. "When Pigs Fly" was delightful as were our fish and pork taco choices. But, for us the highlight is the sea foam margarita. Lovely.

Interesting concept. Little bites and dishes to share. Everything tasted good. The only complaint is there are three kitchens and food comes out unevenly. One dishes comes, you wait. Another comes, you wait...
The terracotta warrior dessert is a must try.
Make a reservation on Open Table to avoid the 30+ minute wait on a week night. I would eat here again.

Service started out slow but picked up. Food was just ok. Best part of the meal was the guacamole and chips. There are so many places in Vegas I doubt we would ever return.

Absolutely brilliant at every turn - what sounds like a strange blend works really well - and every taste - from salad to drinks to other parts of the meal - was amazing. We did the $45 tasting menu and it was worth every penny

I expected some fusion cuisine but found either purely Mexican or purely Chinese dishes. The food itself was very good. But I didn't find the same level of innovation as I did in China Chilcano (in DC). That said, I love all of Jose Andres' restaurants. Zaitinya (in DC) remains my most favorite. Please open one in San Francisco or Berkeley!

Wow! We were surprised and impressed. The lettuce cups are not to be missed... the best I've ever had, I think. Spicy, but soooo good. Wings were great. Fried fish taco, the albacore ceviche, everything was good, except unfortunately, the last thing we had was 18 Monk Noodles, which were disappointing compared with everything else. oh... and I also had a Mezcal Negroni, which was so good, and I ended up ordering two!

Uneven food and service made China Poblano a bit of a disappointment. Some tasty dishes and drinks—the flaca margarita, the carnitas tacos, and the chips and ceviche, in particular—couldn’t make up for spotty service from everyone but our waitress. Dishes on the tasting menu were brought out of sequence and poorly explained.

The manager did do a great job of responding to our concerns and we were even brought a free dessert but by that point we were ready to put China Poblano behind. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend the restaurant to other diners. I would go back for takeout tacos but not another sit down experience.

Sad. I would love to support Jose Andres but China Poblano needs to improve mightily before I’d consider returning. The idea of Asian-Latin fusion is great but the execution left a lot to be desired.

If they have a walk up window, you win in all areas...PERIOD! Located in the Cosmo, the food is not fancy, but tasty and creative. The coconut ceviche is not only delish, it's creative. The fried rice is hands down a must order. Cocktails are tasty, at least the ones I ordered. We ordered both mex and chin food. The concept of mex and chin are awesome! Although, I've done this at home for years, I'm glad someone brought it to life in an actual restaurant. Tacos were good, but a too salty for my tastebuds. I will say, you can get this good anywhere USA and it's basically better there. This is tapas style, so you can share and basically go to another place if your craving something else. This is simply a sit and talk kind of place where your not really going for the fine dining. Though it's still good!
