Everything was great. The food was delicious the service was the best part. Our waitress was awesome. The only thing i didn't like was that happy hour is only at the bar. I dont understand how you can do that to customers that are 2 feet away from the bar at there table and you cant get the same deal. Still really good though.

Outstanding food, great flavors. A bit loud but good energy and very good service. Just one thing: location directly next to a gentleman’s club is a bit off-putting, though it has no effect on the restaurant itself.

Delicious and organic food. LOVED the table-side guacamole and the smoked tomatillo salsa was incredible. The steak fajita were so tasty and delicious. Specialty cocktails (mango strawberry margarita was $23) were expensive, so I’ll stick with beer next time. My husband and I will absolutely be back.

Great food and service but we had a bad experience waiting outside for a cab. Diners should order an Uber at their table and go outside when it arrives. Or if you’re taking a cab make sure it is ready before you exit.

The service was incredibly lacking. It was really disappointing. The restaurant was pretty dead and it seemed like no one cared that we were there. Food was ok but there are far too many restaurants in Vegas to try again.

Good place. Very nice ambiance, very good drinks, good food, a cut above typical Mexican fare. Service was slow, probably just due to being busy but could tell some of our food was ready before others and sat under the warmer a bit too long. The other thing that people should realize is it is attached to a building that houses a strip joint - it has no impact on the food or restaurant in any negative way, but it might be off putting when you first walk up to the place, so don’t turn away because of that….it’s a perfectly
good restaurant.

Poor service. Had a reservation at 4:30 in the afternoon and still had terrible service with the restaurant not being busy. Subpar Mexican. Enchiladas were spicier than I would have liked and the rice was like sticky rice. Not Spanish rice that you would typically find with these dishes.

Just average. I don't know how this place got ratings this high. Carnitas was dry, drinks and salsa were average. They were out of all Mexican beers except for Modelo. Kitchen was slow. Took an hour to get our food. Server was friendly and prompt.

Don’t waste your time and money dining at this restaurant. This place is a total train wreck. Waited over an hour for our entrees. The servers are completely disorganized and the table service is terrible. All of our entrees were extremely salty. I would not recommend this restaurant.

El Dorado Cantina has been a favorite for many years. The food options are great and they use fresh ingredients. When we went for this last visit, it appears that the place has changed. The bathrooms were outright disgusting, according to my wife, and the pricing has shot up like crazy! A glass of Sangria was $16 and the two signature taco plate was $24. The food was still good, but the rice is not the same and was plain and the chips seems to have changed as well. It appears that the restaurant has grown to multiple locations and Chef Paco may not be keeping tabs on the location anymore. Unfortunately, after this last visit, we will probably not go again.

Like many places in Vegas, I felt El Dorado was overpriced for the value of food. It was just average Mexican food. The service was great. Tyler, our waiter, was excellent. The fajitas were great. The lobster tacos were two small street tacos for $30. You could barely tell it was lobster. The other dishes were good, but not outstanding.
