    Loved the Barbacoa and mahi. Our server was great. The margs need work—way too much lime juice for a good ratio. Solid canal side dining at Venetian.

    Service was pretty miserable here, it took an hour for our mains to come out and when they did we didn’t have any cutlery to eat them. Plus they were cold when they came out. We got a credit for 15% off but you know it’s never a good sign when that has to happen.

    Difficult to find (but everything in Vegas?) but worth it as the locationalong the canal is beautiful. Food was priced well for Vegas standards. Pineapple margarita was excellent, as were the enchiladas. Service good although except for host who didn't know to mark we had completed our reservation.

    I don’t know why everyone is giving this place 5 stars. First off, the hostess was rude. Our reservation was at 8:30 and we arrived at 8:25. We didn’t get seated until 8:45 as he was busy gossiping with a coworker. As soon as we sat down, the server, though nice, was rushing us. He seemed to be the only server in our area. Everything is expensive, it’s Vegas, but don’t expect chips and salsa for free. One table near us complained. The food was not good, overpriced and not many options. Again, Vegas is expensive but tacos shouldn’t be priced at what they were. I left my entire meal as the meat tasted old. It’s sad because I wasn’t even asked if it was good or bad, just all tossed. I wish Vegas had better Mexican restaurants on or near the strip as this place was not it. To top it all off, they canceled my reservation after we dined there so that I appeared as a no-show and wouldn’t get dining points. Shady but it was remedied through OpenTable. And careful with the tip amounts on the receipts as they are incorrect, by at least 30%!

    We had the best time at this restaurant the food was great but the Margaritas are the best we have ever had. Our Waiter was very good and we had a lot of Tequila shots. We left there felling very good 😊. We Will be going back in April for sure with our Daughter. The waiter we had said he wanted to try some moonshine so we be bringing him some to try. If you have never been to this place it is worth going to and check it out. As a side not we also got the same table we had when we went the first time right beside the Canal.

    The food was tasty and fresh and the service was great but like most things in Vegas, it was overpriced. We paid $30 for a burrito!! I’ve never paid that anywhere…not even Puesto! Ambiance by the water and gondolas was lovely. Our waiter was charming and accommodating.

    3pm reservations. Got seated by the railing to watch the gondolas- very nice atmosphere. Food was good. Had queso fundido with chorizo and chicken and veggie combo fajitas. Service was lacking. Took a long while to get our water and drinks. Food came out faster. Server was very nice, I think they are understaffed.
