We arrived and were greeted , place was very crowded tight and so noise that you couldn’t hear the person beside you, waiter seemed very short with attitude like it was a bother to wait on us . Got our drinks and food, fish wasn’t cooked all way as the breading on haddock was doughy, we had Mac and cheese and the chicken in Mac and cheese was all dark meat and had less then desirable taste, was our first time eating here and unfortunately will be the last.

Having had three previous satisfactory experiences , we were there to celebrate a birthday, which was noted on our reservation. No acknowledgement of the special event was made. A request for a side (normally offered with a different entree) was made; server reported he would ask the “main chef.” The side never came, and the server never reported why not.

The food was less palatable than on previous occasions—the chips that came with the enormous piece of batter-fried fish were under-cooked and limp. A pastry-wrapped sausage was mushy snd bland; the pastry was undercooked and greasy on the bottom.

Service was provided in a back room. Two small tables were soon eclipsed by two large parties, which were seated alongside us, even though 3/4 of the back room was still empty. The noise level was intolerable. The wait staff appeared to be overwhelmed and scarcely present to previous tables; one of the diners had to solicit assistance from wait staff in other rooms for simple accompaniments (eg, malt vinegar).

Not only was it a disappointment on a special occasion; it was sad to lose trust in a formerly reliable venue on the Strip. We will not be back.

We went for afternoon tea but both my friend and I have dietary restrictions, she being gluten free while I am sugar free. I called ahead to let them know so the sandwiches were served on gluten free buns and instead of the petit fours they gave us berries and cream. Wally was an excellent server and thank you so much Shay and Josh for accommodating our dietary concerns!

Table in the back room lacks atmosphere as a large hall.

Service felt laboured. Had to ask for cutlery for starters. Mains arrived before the starters had been cleared and again we had to ask for cutlery.

Food was nice but not outstanding.

Bill was incorrect and had to wait to be amended.

Overall good but lacked something. Would maybe try again for lunch or breakfast.

Food was on point. Loved the Scotch Deviled Egg. Service was hit or miss. Our server would disappear for long stretches which made out meal take way longer than it should have. He came out and said that we couldn't have Prime Rib because the chef dropped it on the floor. Then proceeded to bring someone in the party Prime Rib. Kind of gross.

Ri-Ra in Mandalay Place is a must eat every time I visit Las Vegas! I have been a fan for about 4 years and after trying at least 8 menu items I have settled on their signature Fish and Chips. They're the best on the planet. Swim on over and catch one today!! Enjoy!!

This pub is in the shops that connect the Mandalay Bay Hotel and the Luxor Hotel. It is very casual and the food is very good. My husband got the fish and chips, huge portion and very tasty. I ordered the curry chicken (tender & just the right amount of curry) I really loved it. Our son in law got the turkey sandwich (fresh craved turkey on toasted bread) very good. Our daughter had the mac n' cheese (added chicken) absolutely delicious. Best of all was the bread pudding, we ordered one to share AMAZING!! I would go back just for that, so yummy.

Like everything else on the Strip, and ESPECIALLY in this Hotel Group's restaurants, the prices are ridiculous. BUT, portions are large and the food is all really good. The Deviled Scotch Eggs were standout for starters and all dishes at the table were appreciated.

The service was friendly but EXTREMELY slow. It made it more difficult to take watching our server have what appeared to be a personal conversation with two other servers while we waited for her to approach our table to greet us. Every request took them (our server or anyone that dropped food) forever to fulfill. When they dropped two plates that two of our party wanted to share, they asked if we needed anything. They asked if they could get another plate to share and were told, "absolutely." The plate never came and when the waitress finally came to see how things were going, they'd nearly finished their plates at it was moot.

It really is irksome to pay that much for service that lacks so much. The final slap was a mandatory 20% tip added to the bill for a party of 5. It wasn't pointed out and we only noticed because we looked. Not sure if it's written policy (usually, either way we don't mind and we didn't argue), but it wasn't appreciated.

Still, this place looks awesome, I'm sure has great music at the right time(s) and the food was really, really good. Worth the visit.

We had afternoon tea to celebrate a family birthday. They sat us in a small room off the main restaurant and provided attentive service. Food was on par with much more expensive/formal locations we’ve done tea at, but in a much more casual environment. The patrons in the main pub were enjoying the World Cup games from numerous screens and all the other food we saw passing through appeared to be ample portions.

Great atmosphere with a unique bar. Plenty of choices if you like whiskey or are looking for quality draft beers. The food quality is good, but I felt like I have had better meals here before. It felt like the portion sizes had been increased but the quality of the food had taken a hit. Overall, a good meal hidden in the Luxor.
