    My visit to El Sombrero was extremely disappointing, seeing as the restaurant is CLOSED. I made the reservation, got a confirmation number in an email and now you are asking about my experience. I would suggest you might stick with restaurants that are in business. From now on I will contact the establishment directly and not use Open Table!

    A group of 8 of us walked here after a long day working at the Las Vegas Market buildings. This place was an absolute gem of a find! Service was slower than usual because they were short staffed that night and one server was available for the entire room of guests. However, she did a great job! Food was phenomenal, fresh and creative. Our margaritas were just ok so I'd recommend ordering beer or wine. We will DEFINITELY go back in January during the Vegas market again as this place was beautiful inside and it wasn't difficult to get reservations. Plus, the food was amazing. Not your typical Mexican food joint.

    After driving 30 minutes to get to the restaurant we realize that it was closed . There was a note on the door saying the air conditioning went out and the restaurant would be closed for a few days. It would have been ideal if someone contacted everyone with reservations to make them aware and so that they could make other plans.

    We were disappointed to say the least! Place smelled like a sewer, water tasted horrible, food barely warm and very mediocre. Waiter chatting it up with the other customers and we could not get his attention. He offered to bring us bottled water because the tap water was so bad. Then he charged us for the water!! I will not be back nor recommend it.

    El Sombero is my neighborhood restaurant, but it's delicious enough that I'd drive to there, even in a town known for great Mexican food. It's a great, small, eclectic atmosphere and everything on the menu - including the margaritas and sangria - are amazing. It's upscale Mexican - don't expect nuked plates of mystery meat rice and beans. It's epicurean!

    Wanted to get off the strip and get some real authentic Mexican food. What a treat and special place this is. Jose was very helpful and very attentive with his service and selection. The food was fantastic and probably the best guacamole I have had. I ordered the enchiladas and my wife had the seafood tacos. Love them both. Don’t miss this place!

    Our waiter, Jose, was AMAZING! He was SO much fun and we just LOVED his energy. No one wanted for anything while Jose was on the job! We had been here once before for just a quick bite. This was our first "meal" here. WOW! Impressed!! Not your usual "tacos and burritos" joint. I HIGHLY recommend El Sombrero!!

    This restaurant is a downtown gem, the oldest continuing restaurant in Las Vegas. It was opened in 1939. The excellent recipes have continue to the present day. I ordered the Parrillada for two. It had tender, prime rib eye steak, homemade sausage, barbequed chicken, cream cheese stuffed peppers, street corn, french fries, rice and beans and tortillas. Every food item in this dish was savory and delicious.

    Opened about two years ago but we just discovered this hidden gem. We tried the watermelon margaritas, bacon wrapped jalapenos and chicken tamale. Overall vibe of the place is great and small place with about 40 seats (not a place for large parties).
