Rí Rá Irish Pub, in Mandalay Place, epitomizes a true Irish pub experience, with a comfortable neighborhood environment where conversation flows as smoothly as Guinness ebbs in the glass. Constructed from a pub meticulously restored in Ireland then shipped to Las Vegas, it’s a hotspot for locals and visitors alike, offering an impressive line-up of live music, a comprehensive drink list and fare that defies pub standards.

We came for afternoon tea. Very nice, but the sports bar atmosphere kind of clashes with the chill vibe of tea. Maybe consider a more private or closed off room?
The tea selection and food was great and the value was right on.

This was our fist time at Ri Ra and we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was absolutely delicious and the appetizers were outstanding. A lot of choices on the menu and very reasonably priced.
The service was excellent and very friendly and we will definitely be back.

The kids and I took Mom out for afternoon tea and were very pleased with the experience! Friendly waitress took the time to greet us and explain the whole afternoon tea process. Another server brought out the sandwiches and cakes and detailed each with enthusiasm. The entire experience was pleasant and the wife and I will return to the pub to take advantage of their locals discounts on Friday nights! Glad I found this place!

Best Irish Pub this side of the Atlantic. Lived in England back in the '80s and for years searched for a "true Pub" and found it in Las Vegas. The Fish and Chips are spot on delicious, no need for tarter sauce just the malt vinegar. If you order the curry order it half and half, half chips half rice, trust me you won't be disappointed! The Salmon is absolutely delicious! For starters the Deviled Scotch Eggs are heaven on a plate! Don't pass up the Bread Pudding, yes it takes 20-25 minutes to prepare but it's well worth the wait!

Early in the night (7pm) so it was fairly quiet. Sat in the back... basketball was on TV... guys at bar were about as noisy as it got. Food was great... quick to receive. Service was awesome. Drinks were great. No complaints!

Food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! Best meal we had our entire trip. Prices were very reasonable. We will be going back every future Vegas vacation. It is a pub and it was during the NFL draft so the energy level & conversations were intense. HIGHLY recommend!!!

The service was excellent and the Salmon Oscar was superb. Ri Ra has a very authentic Irish feel to it and the band, The Black Donnelly’s, made it much more so.

My husband and I went on Friday night as loved it! Fish and chips were amazing. The atmosphere casual and welcoming. They had live music. Went back with friends on Monday and had a different experience. One couple ordered a side carded that came out as a larger portion than another persons main course Caesar. My French fries were only partially cooked, which was s a bummer, cuz I really liked them on Friday. The Mac and cheese was AMAZING. So, a lot of I consistencies. We will give them another shot the next time we go to Vegas.

The food is pretty good. Beverage selection very good. Service was okay. The bread was forgotten. And the pecans and dressing were forgotten on on of the entree salads. We will give the restaurant one more try before we say never again.

Host seemed annoyed we hadn't specified teatime on our reservation. The option hadn't been available online at the time. Waited an extra 15 mins for them to set a table with mismatched tea sets and tableware. Food and tea were tasty but nothing special, rather pricey for what you get. We had cocktails while waiting for the tea to come out - irish coffee was great, sapphire martini was not. Waitress was very nice. Decor was cool. Looks like it would be great to have a late dinner and drinks while listening to live music, but do not recommend their afternoon tea at all.

Las Vegas is full of Irish pubs but if you go to only one, make it THIS one. The food here is delicious and the service is outstanding. My husband loves the Irish Curry Chicken. I love the Fish and Chips and the Potato Leek Soup. Both of us love that we can get Smithwick's on draft. Where we live, it's usually only available in a bottle. They also make an excellent burger. We recently ate here and I had ordered my burger well done. I know: that's a sin in some places; but I love my burger cooked all the way through -- not my steaks. When the burger came, it was almost rare inside and I barely had the words out of my mouth when our server, Sean, apologized profusely and promised to have them cook it the way it should have been. Next thing I knew, the manager came and apologized as well, and even offered to take it off of our bill! That was totally unnecessary and I told him so. Mistakes happen with the way folks like their meat cooked all the time. I wasn't upset. I just wanted it cooked all the way. They totally prepared me a new burger and it was cooked to perfection. Talk about making thing right! They've got it down for sure! The manager and my server both came to make sure it was the way I liked it. You just don't get that kind of customer service in most restaurants these days! I only wish we could come more often. We'd be regulars if we were locals. As it is, we'll just have to wait until we return to Vegas again but I highly recommend this pub to anyone looking for great food, great service, a fun atmosphere and really good Irish bands. The Black Donnellys were there the last time we came and they were fantastic. Go and enjoy! You'll be so glad you did!

This is one of the more reasonably priced restaurants in Mandalay. The atmosphere is still upbeat without being overwhelming. I had a Guiness and the fish and chips - which was awesome. Even my buddy from England thought the fish and chips were legit.
