We love El Dorado! This wasn’t our first visit, however we usually sit at the bar for dinner.
This time we had a party of 5. The wait time to get a drink at our table was ridiculous. But we were patient. It continued from there to the point where everyone’s meal was served except for one person who had to wait another 5 minutes. Once the waitress brought it out there was no apology and mention of the delay. The manager and hostess both came over and apologized and offered to help but it was just disappointing.
Best Mexican hands down. My favorite place to go all the time! Chef Paco came to our table and talked to us. He rocks
Amazing food and service! Love finding good Mexican food when I am out of town. Having Celiac it is always important to find a restaurant that is aware of food complications, and El Dorado goes above and beyond to insure your food is safe! Found a jewel in this one and we will definitely be back!
Paco was great, our server Grace was phenomenal, and the whole experience was amazing. Will definitely recommend to friends who are coming to Vegas!
The last two times we have come in, the service has been subpar - the food is amazing but service was inconsistent. I would like to feel more taken care of instead of always looking for the food server.
Wonderful first time experience. Quality of food superb, staff very helpful and professional. All food entrees large portions and excellent quality and taste.
Excellent as always! Service and food the best. Our favorite restaurant.
Two words: tableside guacamole. You won’t be disappointed.
Food and ambiance was wonderful!
Whenever I am in town for business or vaca, I bring people to the El Dorado. After giggling about the location right next to the Sapphire Lounge, everyone I’ve taken there has raved bout he experience. Just enough Vegas over the top with better prices than you find on the strip.
The food is organic, non-GMO and they list their suppliers on the menu which is how I prefer to eat. The jalapeño margarita is always my favorite, and my companion enjoyed the Cadillac margarita too. I can’t come here with ordering Mexican style corn off the cob, and a giant plate of 3 types is mole. Unfortunately it is way more than I could ever eat (and mole isn’t for everyone) but the leftovers after a night on the town are just as delicious. Upscale Mexican food done right.
Everything was amazing! We will be back! The portion sizes were great!
Good service. Next to the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club. Dark, quiet, nice interior.
Food quality was pretty good. Some item’s value vs. price were bosrderljne.
Service good until the end where they pushed HARD to get 5* reviews on Yelp. If you agreed to write, a free Flan came your way. Pushed to a point of physically taking the phone to get to review page, checking if you were done. Very annoying.
Excellent service by Grace, the waitress. Food was delicious and better than any other MExican food I have had in quite awhile. Go there, enjoy and ask for Grace, she was outstanding!
Great food and friendly service. The black beans were amazing, as was the carne asada.
Best service ever. I went for my 21st and the whole staff including the chef and owner were so sweet.
Booked two tables of 10 and needed to wait, first 20min, then another 20min for our tables. Got blamed for it even though they could not give us the tables separately. Good nothing to cheer about and a fixed tip already included when groups over 6.
This was our 3rd visit to El Dorado Cantina, which had become our "must go" spot for Mexican food in Las Vegas. It's puzzling, however, that our latest experience fell so far below expectations that we thought perhaps the ownership had changed. Turned out that's not the case, so the decline is inexplicable.
1st - What happened to the enchilada sauce? My wife and I ordered different enchilada dishes, but both were excessively dry. Mine had a red coloring that looked more like the tortillas were lightly brushed with a powdery substance that reeked of excessive chili powder. I didn't even finish one.
2nd - I had a $10 OpenTable discount (I miss when they were all $20 :-( ) . When we paid the bill, the server acted as if he had never seen such a thing before, so he had to check with the manager. That turned out to be the owner.
3rd - the chef/owner appeared at our table, informing us that he'd give us the $10 discount, but that they weren't affiliated with OpenTable. Huh? That's how I made my reservation. The owner made the dubious accusation that OpenTable lists restaurants without their consent. How is it then, that the hostess was able to look up my reservation before she seated us at our table??? I have no idea what's going on here, but El Dorado Cantina is no longer a "must go" for us. There's something very dysfunctional going on.
Excellent restaurant we recently had a family member accompany us for a very pleasant meal . Fine service, very tasty meals and comfortable restaurant.
We go often and we like this place, never had breakfast before and won’t again. Service was disappointing and slow during a slow time. Not the norm, hopefully it was a rare thing.
Food is always consistent...fresh and delicious. Our server was fantastic.
We’ve been to this restaurant several times but this was the first time for breakfast. The food as always was great. However we thought it a bit odd that we could not substitute rice or beans for potatoes without an up charge. This is a Mexican restaurant after all and rice and or beans are somewhat par for the course. Additionally this is not an inexpensive place. When we got out check we found we were charged for a coffee refill. We have been to many upscale restaurants and never have been charged for refills of coffee, tea or soft drinks. As much as we like the food at El Dorado Cantina we may think twice about going again based in the nickel and diming pricing policy
Horrible service! There was this weird warning on Yelp and we wish it dissuaded us from going. They had no lids for drinks, ginger beer for Moscow Mules, no menus, or enough seats.
The food was outstanding. Great atmosphere. When we were leaving the owner/chef was at the door..so friendly...we will definitely return. I'm glad we decide to give the restaurant a chance.
The guacamole and Margaritas were phenomenal! Definitely a repeat visit in the future!
We stopped eating all foods with pesticides (sprayed poison) and GMOs (genetically modified with pesticides/poisons growing inside). Sometimes I would like to relax and not make 3 meals and 2 snacks from scratch every day for our adopted special needs children. El Dorado is one of the very few restaurants in town without poisons in their food... and we love the food. Thanks!
Don’t let the location stop you from going to this fabulous restaurant. The food is fantastic! The tequila selection is awesome! The staff is super friendly. I love every dish I have eaten here. The pazolé is the best I have ever had. Last visit my husband had the octopus and chorizo tacos. They were delicious. Table side guac and margaritas are a must.
Absolutely outstanding. The food was so good the service was fantastic it was great.
Great as usual
Super friendly hostess and wait staff. It’s nice to be welcomed back upon a returning visit. Love the organic and high-quality meat options, with the sources listed by the farm name! Impressive!
The food and drinks were great but the service was very slow. Water glass was never refilled and we placed drink orders that never arrived until we reminded the waitress of our order.
Great and attentive service. Best Guacamole ever! They were really nice and the manager came to greet us. We were scared to tell them about the sangria but they made a change and it was amazing. The only thing I would recommend is music and if they would have made a Birthday celebration. I wrote on the notes we were celebrating my birthday but I didn’t get the sombrero. Food was really good everyone thought it was delicious. The aguachiles weren’t spicy but it was really good. It was more like a ceviche. The shrimp was tender. My friends loved the tacos and sopes. The scenery is nice and elegant.
Awesome Mexican restaurant. Been here many times and every time we try something new, never a disappointment. open 24/7, love that!!
Grace was excellent ! She was very knowledgeable about the dishes and was more than happy to get something for a person that was with us.
Great food. Recommend the guacamole. Great and friendly service.
Favorite place in Vegas for Mexican food . Very very good burritos!
Great food. Service was a little off due to our waiter also having a big party.
Non-GMO, farm to table Mexican, and fantastic Chef Paco to boot!
No matter what you order here, it WILL be fantastic!
A little pricey, however, portions can be shared as they are HUGE!
GO WITH AN APPETITE and don't forget the tableside guacamole!
The reservation was easy to do online, the food was delicious (we eat vegan), the staff was fast and friendly. It was only as short Lyft ride from the Vegas Strip to the El Dorado CANTINA. I highly recommend it.
What a gem ! Great food and service, will definitely go back
Our Hostess was so understanding as we seemed like Goldilocks trying to find where we wanted to sit. We all laughed our way to the third choice we made. :0)
Juan was the best server ever! He was very friendly, attentive and answered all our questions with a smile. My roasted vegetable tacos were wonderful and the black beans with rice,such a great finish to the combo plate. My guy asked Juan to recommend 'something with eggs' ..he did and it was a delicious looking plate of steak strips and eggs (not sure the menu name). I think my guy liked it because his plate was totally cleaned. We are happy to find El Dorado and their healthy ..organic..non-GMO chef prepared delicious foods .
