Organic & pasture-raised foods are a welcoming change from the standard offerings at 99.9% of all other eating establishments. The flavors of every dish are simply amazing. Recently enjoyed the table-side making of Tres Chiles guacamole - Spicy & addictive!!! Favorites include: Taquitos (especially shrimp), Street Tacos (especially Cochinita), Signature Tacos (especially Mahi Mahi), Entree-Cochinita Pibil, and Burritos (especially shredded chicken). Cadillac Margarita is to die for!

Food was not great and overpriced. It felt more like a bar that serves food than a restaurant with a bar. Would not recommend to anyone.

The food was very good. The price for the food was extremely high. There are great Mexican restaurants in Las Vegas that have great food and more reasonable prices. Prices were way out of line. I think that they normally have tourist show up to eat after or before the visit to the high end stripper club that is in the same building.

We made a reservation for 11 (eleven) people , arrived in time and they made us wait 30 minutes. Service was slow and we were starving and kept drinking margaritas and beers and munching chips, however must say that food was very good and price adequate.

This place has PHENOMENAL food. The salsas are ON POINT, and so is the quality of cheese they use! You will not be disappointed! I just wished that service had been a bit faster, but other than that it was great!

Waited 10 mins for water and 20 mins for margaritas. The server was working a private party in the back and was very non attentive to our table. Food came out wrong the margs came out on the rock not frozen. Told manger and he adjusted ticket very generously. Will be back next time in Vegas.

Excellent experience! Every time we come to Vegas, we make a point to come to El Dorado and see Chef Paco and the team. The food is OUT OF THIS WORLD and the service is amazing as well. It’s the only restaurant I’ve been to where the refried beans didn’t taste like they were straight out of a can. Their house margarita pitchers are a great deal and their tacos are so flavorful! Pro tip: GET THE FLAN AND TRES DE LECHE for dessert! I don’t care how full you are, it’s worth it. Can’t wait to get back to Vegas to visit!!

The food was delicious and I had a great time there for my birthday. Our waitress was just a little bit slow to get stuff to us. She never asked if we needed refills on drinks, we sat for awhile waiting to see her to flag her down. She may have been new and if that is the case I completely understand. Over-all I would definitely go back, based on the food alone. The Owner or Manager not sure which she was came over and talked with us and was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The only complaint is the wait on some of the drinks and food items.

overall we had a good experience however due to our servers inattentiveness it would be difficult to recommend a visit. The food was tasty and the a menu extensive with the standard Mexican flare but with an elevated presentation. Our server may have been overworked. She was generally pleasant but 100 percent disconnected. There wasn’t a sense of service.

This is our new favorite Las Vegas restaurant. The flavors are absolutely superlative. Be sure to try the flan. It is to die for. There is a good reason El Dorado is one of the top 100 restaurants in America.

I had the best margarita I have ever had in my life at El Dorado Cantina! I ordered the jalapeno margarita and it was just the right amount of sweet/tart with a kick. I wish we had your recipe in Fort Worth, TX! The carnitas street tacos were also absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I will return next time I'm in town.

This place is no good. We sat there for an hour before our food came out. The portions were small which then made it over priced. I had such high hopes for this place, but I won’t go back.

Super fun atmosphere. Great service and the food was some of the best Mexican food we’ve had in Las Vegas I originally saw the chef on Chpped so I knew that next time we came to Vegas we’d have to check it out. Glad we did.

We loved our overall experience here! The service was warm and welcoming. We also got our food pretty fast considering how the restaurant was. And of course the food was amazing. I had the best black beans ever with my meal. This was truly a wonderful experience.

Incredible. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Chef Paco came over to our table, introduced himself, and sent us a flan (his grandmother's recipe) on the house! Our waiter, Vladimir, was able to answer our questions and make recommendations. He asked me how I liked the Paloma and seemed to genuinely care about my response! I subtracted one star from "Ambiance" because I do think it's a bit strange that it's attached to the Sapphires strip club. Looking forward to checking out the Tivoli Village location when it opens!

I chose here tonight due to the fact the happy is listed online until 6pm. Upon arrival the hostess came to the front and greeted us I asked if happy hour was bar only and she advised it ended at 5. I mentioned online it lists for 6pm still and she was nice enough apologized and recommended to go speak to a bartender to see if they will honor the prices for the first round for the inconvenience. We went to the bar it took about 6 minutes to be greeted and I asked what the hostess had told me. The bartender said they cannot bc the computer changed but she could ask a manager so I said sure. But she didn’t get the manager so we went back to the hostess for a table. When seated we waited 17 minutes for water. Once we ordered Rita’s and table guacamole the guacamole came first. The drinks took over 15 minutes from time of order to come. I asked the waitress about them and she went looking for them. The drinks were alright. The guacamole was good. We had shrimp enchiladas and the food came out pretty late and the queso was cold but I didn’t send it back we were just hungry. The waitress was nice enough but didn’t come by often. The Asian busser was incredibly competent and friendly a tall white waiter would walk by and look at our places and leave them. Another busser came by and tried to get the chips but we were still nibbling so he sighed heavily.

The hostess marked me a no show for my reso on here I got the email when we were waiting for dinner so I advised the manager when she was walking around. She did correct it.

We waited awhile for the check to be picked up. Overall we were there for over two hours due to just the timing for everything.

I’ve come here since they opened and this is the worst experience I’ve had which is a shame because I brought a friend who came here for the first time. I won’t be back for awhile until something changes.
