My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner here. We were seated quickly, our server was friendly and attentive, and our food was amazing. I think it’s the best guacamole I’ve ever had! Everything was fresh and flavorful. The house made salted caramel ice cream, on fresh strawberries was SO good!

Our entire experience was spectacular from start to finish. We had the most amazing, bright, friendly and knowledgeable server named Sarah. We weren't blown away upon entering and being seated, but the second Sarah arrived at the table and greeted us, all of us were thrilled. She guided us through making wonderful food and beverage selections and it's a true testament that an excellent server can make or break a meal - SHE WAS PERFECTION! We were all happy with our meals and margaritas thanks to her thoughtful selections based on our likes and dislikes.

This was our last dinner together in Vegas as a group of eight and Border Grill delivered!

Thanks so much to the staff and especially to Sarah - keep up the amazing work!

Border Grill's brunch is always amazing! You can easily spend 2 hours at this restaurant and you are never rushed out. The brunch has amazing selections and you can also order bottomless mimosas for an added, low price. The servers are friendly and everyone treats you like an invited guest. I also highly recommend sitting on the patio during those beautiful Vegas days. Thank you for a great time!

The concept seems cool with all you can eat tapas for brunch. However, it took forever to get the food and when it did come out, the food was cold. Our server wasn’t attentive. I think he forgot about our table bc we were literally waiting around for 20 min after he said he will be right back to take our order. I had to flag down the manger because we were forgotten about. The manger was nice and asked if we wanted to order food. AT that time we were over it. Having worked in the food industry, we are SUPER patient and I get when it gets busy things happen but it wasn’t busy at all.. I will not be returning or recommending this place to friends.

As the owner and operator of Restaurant Consultants of Las Vegas I have to say that I was extremely impressed wit the overall execution of dinner. The food was fresh and extremely flavorful. The service was impeccable for such a moderately low price point. You could actually taste the tequila (local's know what I'm talking about) in the Blood Orange martini which was delightfully balanced. we will definitely be back!

The initial greet was on point. The upstairs bar service was also good. Seating down stairs is where the service started to fail. Once seated there was no service for too long. We flagged down a server to take our order. The area was a little darker than it should have been. No table lighting.

Very good to excellent (in my mind) authentic Mexican cuisine.
Great mezcal mixed drinks.
Our server, Sarah, was nothing short of awesome. We had all kinds of dietary issues around the table of 8 plus one 16 month old infant. Sarah worked with each person who had dietary issues ( at least 3 and possibly 4 at the table) to ensure each order would work. Extremely gracious about check split. Thank you, Sarah!
Very friendly for the 16 month old.
Very noisy downstairs, but once the party of 20 (yes, we counted them) left early into our visit, the noise level was very reasonable.

I've been to Border Grill twice and enjoyed the food both times. First time was for Saturday brunch, and I enjoyed the variety. It wasn't like your usual brunch options. The next time we went for dinner and the waiter suggested the pork, which was very good. The fried plantains were also great, and I couldn't stop eating the chips and salsa.
