The food was decent. My NY steak with mole was good. My wife’s Chille relleno however, not so much. I think in an attempt to elevate a traditional Mexican dish all additional ingredients in this recipe compete for flavor preventing you from wanting another bite. The service was ok. It was very slow for a Friday night. I ordered a drink and took very long until the server came to tell me they didn’t have one of the mixtures prepared and it would take a while to make it. To make it easier on them I told her not to worry I would just order something else. When the check came, the out of stock item was still on my bill. Simple error to correct just involve your manager. I paid the check as presented because why bother waiting for a few bucks. Not worth each other’s time.

Nice place, the food was really good, especially the plantains... The drinks are not strong at all but maybe its who makes them. The waiter was friendly and promptly.

Service from the hosts to our waitress was amazing. The guacamole was too spicy for 4 out of the 5 of us. Drinks were amazing! The rest of the food was mediocre at best. I would come back just for drinks.

We booked via open table to make sure we have a table reserved. The place was practically empty and yet we waited 20 min to be seated. When we got seated we ordered appetizers right away (we were hungry). It took an hour to come, but our huge Margaritas came right away.
After we finally got our appetizers, the server never came back to check or to take our orders. When I flagged down one of the staff to ask to find our server, she said “hold on” and went back to the front but never went to find our server. After another whole hour later we ordered our food and again it took a long time. We didn’t even touch our food- because by that time, we weren’t hungry anymore and had to leave. Almost 3 hours in that restaurant and most of it was spent waiting. Ridiculous! I will never come back to this place nor will I ever recommend it to anyone. A zero star for sure.

(1) "Happy hour" drinks, are ONLY honored, at the bar! Ridiculous, when you are dining in happy hour prices are not honored.
(2) Food options are very minimum.
(3) 3 mini tacos w/zero sides $18.00, not reasonable for consumers at all.

Food and music were very good.
The service from the waitress was horrible, her name is Angela(Angie) it took forever to bring our drinks… she just brought one and 20 min later the other two, after like 39 min we asked to the boss person Benjamin if he can find the waitress to take our order.
When we finished our food Benjamin recommended a dessert “tres leches”
The waitress didn’t ask ones if everything was ok or recommended
a dessert or ask if we like another drink. She just brought our bill then I asked her at what time do you guys close? (It was 9:20pm) and she said at 11pm. What a really POOR service. I asked to a another server if we can speak with the manager; the manager approached our table very unprofessional and with out experience.
He didn’t even offer an apology or did anything to improve our bad experience.
Long story short I have to give 5 stars to Benjamin, the food an music.
Unfortunately I’ll never recommend this place to no body due to the poor customer service
Oh and I regret the tip I gave $35.00 I just did it with the hope that Benjamin will receive 3% of our tip.

I knew I was in trouble when I could hear the noise coming from the restaurant in the corridor outside the restaurant. Restaurant is probably the wrong term for this place, it is more of a sports bar that serves Mexican food. The food and cocktails were great. The level of noise was over the top. Don't plan to talk with anyone while you are inside. I was hoarse by the time I left. No way was I going to hang around for a second drink once we were done with our meal. I was just chuckled at when I asked if the volume could be lowered in the restaurant area. There are too many Mexican restaurants in the local area for locals to enjoy without this level of noise, no matter how good the food is. They will just have to live off the tourists.

The atmosphere is fun, Day of the Dead chic, skulls and Marigolds. We shared the chicken taquitos, they were crispy and tasty, great to dip with guacamole and sour cream. We each ordered the carne asada chiliquilles (think breakfast nachos) great sauce, crispy tortillas, big enough we could have shared it.

I could have used a refill on my coffee but this is one of the best brunch options for the price in Las Vegas.

Venue was busy due to NFR and concert. Staff was friendly , making the wait times more tolerable. Once seated , there was a bit of a delay for server ( water). Once we ordered the food came out quickly and was hot and full of flavor. One of the v best Mexican style places in vegas!!

I had reservations for 6 pm and had to wait to be seated almost 15 minutes. They didn’t have inside seating, but the heating lamps worked well in the cold. The waiter was pleasant and attentive.

Loved The Pink Taco when this hotel was the Hard Rock. The new restaurant looks nice but the food is of poor quality. Apparently Richard Brandon is spending his money to improve outer space and could care less about his restaurants. Service, however, was exceptional.

The low rating in service is for the hostesses when you check in. Our reservations were for 5:45 PM. They tried seating us outside which we didn't want and them made us wait over 25 minutes for our table. Once we were seated, we had to ask for our waitress. We feel they overbooked the restaurant and didn't have enough staff. Once we talked to our waitress we were able to order dinner and drinks. Both were good. Another waitress who wasn't our waitress made sure we were taken care of and brought us our check so we could get to our concert. We had eaten at the restaurant several years ago when it was under Hard Rock management and it was much better then.

First off the hostess was a little rude…we were 15 minutes early for our reservation so would not be seated…we asked to wait at the bar ordered drinks then immediately called…closed that tab and checked in first thing she asked was if we took care of our drinks first…of course we did! Tacos Salsa and Guacamole were the best!!! Rice and beans not so much!l Service was kind of slow but overall enjoyed ourselves!
