Once we were seated it took 15 minutes to get in a drink order. The people who were seated after us had their drinks, appetizer and main course before we even got our chips and guacamole.

We ordered the Nachos...they were huge!!! There were only two of us, and there was easily enough left for at least one other person. Honestly, they were so good we contemplated going again before we left Vegas.

Reservation was made months in advance and it was not honored due to "new years eve on the las vegas strip". They tried to tell me I would have to pay $500.00 for my original reservation of table for 3.

New Years Eve. no wait (though we had reservations) GREAT service. The staff was extremely friendly, and went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. They even recommended us ordering less so that we wouldn't waste food, or pay a lot of extra money for food we couldn't eat. We will visit again!

Great location on the Vegas strip. The service was excellent as is the atmosphere. The $4 tacos were small but tasty. My only complaint is that if you charge for chips & salsa then refills should be complementary.

We ate here 3 years ago and loved it BUT after this visit we will not be returning. The service was not great and extremely slow. The food was not good. The steak was over cooked and chewy and the chicken was not seasoned and and totally flavorless. Such a shame because the atmosphere is really great.

Bar was excellent upstairs, However before we went up stairs we stopped in at the resturant down stairs this was on Saturday Nov 21 2015. The manager working that evening was very rude and not friendy at all,he was a tall caucasian gentelman. I have visted Diablos before and always had a great time there. But this manager was really something else. I dont know if my opinon even matters about my experiance, but this guy has no reason being a manager.

I was staying at the Monte Carlo and stopped here for a quick bite after flying in to town. The Margs and chips and salsa did the trick, but the fish tacos were a bit suspect. Would not return to eat food, but would to drink. Pretty mediocre but convenient location.

The appetizers were amazing! The queso fundido was the best, and the guacamole was a close second. We ordered meals as well, but thought the appetizers were better than the meals and wished we had just stayed with appetizers and drinks. Large drink selection as well and the margaritas were very good.

I took my partner to Diablo's for her birthday dinner before the show. Diablo's was recommended by hotel staff as a better option than the place I was considering previously. I have always wanted to go to Diablo's but was nervous that it would be too rowdy for a nice dinner. I was shockingly surprised and my assumptions were blown away! I don't know how you do it but the crowd of the bar seems to disappear once you step into the dinning area. It wasn't too loud. We were able to talk to each other without yelling even though we were seated on the balcony above the bar area. Our service was great and the food and drinks were amazing!!! Best guacamole I have ever had at a restaurant! And the drinks were strong! You truly get what you pay for at Diablo's. Thank you for being a great start to a birthday evening that will go down as one of the best she's ever had!
