Arrived at 4:15, seated at booth, next to bar. Asked about happy hour specials, told they could only be purchased at the bar (note: we were at a table NEXT to the bar, and there were NO other customers). So we went to the bar to order a drink and sit back down at our booth. Told we MUST drink the drink at the bar. Really? I asked to see the manager, but he was busy talking to someone about marketing or something. When he finished with that person, he moved around the restaurant, and would not come and address us. We decided to order our meal at the bar (by now, 3 tables occupied in the restaurant), and still no manager stopping to talk to us.
I finally stopped him and asked if our server told him that we wanted to see him (we saw the server go and speak to him when we requested a manager), and the manager told us that the server did NOT tell him that we asked to see him. I explained to the manager that we were not happy about the service, but didn't care to ruin our meal discussing it. Manager tried to engage us, o asked him not to. Well, the server walked by, while the manager was standing there, and I quickly asked in, in front of his manager, if he had told him that we wanted to speak with him. He said that yes, he did. So, was the manager lying to us??? He said he didn't understand his own server. I asked the manager to please leave us along so we could finish our meal. The manager took care of our meal (NOT the drinks, which started all of this).
Either way, the damage has been done. One of our top two restaurants in Las Vegas, has let us down, and I don't see us returning because of the manager, and that's unfortunate.

One of Vegas’s somewhat hidden gems, though word is finally getting out. Excellent menu selection and great tasting meals. We have not had a bad meal yet. Portion sizes a a little on the large size so you are forewarned not to overdo it on salsa and chips. But if you do, they are delicious.

The food is average. NOT a top Mexican restaurant. I’m a So Cal native, so I’m probably spoiled. I’ve been to taco shops with better food, no offense. The servers were very nice and professional. Just way over hyped for what you get.

This was an odd find. I was looking for a good Mexican place off the strip so I can go on a double date with some friends. This place had a great reviews so we gave it a try. Why do I say odd? Well it is connected to Sapphire's gentleman's club. So needless to say that threw me off when we pulled into the parking lot. The restaurant is very dark and loud, which isn't an issue for us, but something to mindful of if you are looking for a more intimate setting. The service (waiter) was good, but there was some confusion when the food was delivered. And more importantly, the food was average. Portions are big, but nothing special to write home about....I don't plan on going back anytime soon. However, I did notice it was a 24/7 place so if I come back to get a lap dance and want a place to soak up my alcohol, they will certainly be on my mind.

This was our third time at this restaurant over the last five years, since we don't live in Las Vegas. It never disappoints! Spectacular food with innovative menu items, all organic, good service, and friendly management. The staff works as a team together, which is unusual. The staff responds well to questions and very sensitive to food requests. Can only recommend!

Our service from Danny was absolutely excellent. He explained multiple dishes and drinks to us, gave us popular recommendations as well as his personal favorite recommendations, and told us the best way to modify our drinks for the best experience, and with a smile and great attitude. And as a vegetarian, I loved the vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free friendly menu.

Found on line through yelp. Went on a Saturday night for my brothers birthday, nice greeting as we entered.
Wait staff was excellent, food was really good, would have liked the chips to be warm, no one cared for the rice. BEST flan I have ever had and the margaritas were the bomb!

Came for breakfast at 9:45am. The service was extremely slow, and we were the only people there. Food was great, but it took a long time to get out of the kitchen. Coming back for dinner tomorrow night. Hopefully they pick up the pace with busier business levels.

So happy to have found a mexican restaurant that is committed to organic and non GMO ingredients throughout their menu. The veggie tacos were the best I've ever had. The ginger spicy margaritas were surprisingly a very big hit! We're so happy we did not let the fact that they are next door to the Sapphire deter us. Aside from the Sapphire's signage, you would never know of their existence . In other words, entering and leaving the restaurant was not unlike any other restaurant adjacent to an unrelated/different business in the neighborhood. I will be returning soon with more family and friends to El Dorado Cantina!

I had colleagues in town from Canada. I’ve never had a bad meal at El Dorado Cantina. Only one person enjoyed the food. The Mahi Street Tacos were inedible. One tiny piece of fish was hard and dried out. We asked for guacamole mild to medium. It was so hit no one could eat it. I was very disappointed. I’m hoping it was just an off night. But I won’t take guests there anymore. I was completely embarrassed since I built it up so much.

El Dorado Cantina has one of the more eclectic Mexican menus in town. The food is always upscale and good. This time however, the service was lacking. Our server was busy making tableside guacamole for other tables, therefore ignoring our table. Otherwise the experience was at its usual level. We will continue to frequent this restaurant.

Excellent food! And we have high 'San Diego Mexican food' standards ;). We had the Carne asada street tacos, mahi tacos, and Steak fajitas. They make the Guacamole fresh at your table and it was the best I've ever had! If you're looking for authentic Mexican food that's off the strip, this is the place!
