Service and food were great. We had a reservation and the hostess did not want to seat us as one of our party was not there yet as she was parking the car. I was with 3 disabled adults who needed to sit down. The second hostess allowed us to go in thankfully. Other than that everything was great.

Border Grill is so yummy! The regular menu is always amazing, and the unlimited tapas menu is such an awesome deal! $45 for unlimited tapas versions of the whole menu is the perfect way to sample different tons of different offerings. There wasn’t a single dish we didn’t enjoy! Everything is SO fresh and flavorful. Service was beyond excellent as well. Our server Autumn was so, so friendly, attentive and went out of her way to make sure we had a great experience. Being from LA, we’re privileged enough to go to their LA restaurants, but Mandalay Bay is a special and unique experience, with a nice ambiance and view that LA doesn’t offer. A must try!

Stopped by Border Grill for Restaurant Week. The special menu was nice. Three courses, app, main and dessert. We ordered ceviche and tamales. The tamales were phenomenal, I could have eaten ten of them. The ceviche was food but overshadowed by the tamales. For mains we had one order of carne asada and one of the pork street tacos. Both were very good although my husband preferred the carne asada. Dessert was tres leches cake and flan. We had a blood Orange Margarita spiked with jalapeño. Too sweet for my taste. A big negative was the volume of the music. Way too loud. Overall we were happy and will return.

We usually love the food at Border Grill. This was our first disappointing meal. It’s restaurant week so that might be why. My fish tacos were really dry and my husband’s carne asada tacos were dry and salty.

If you visit Las Vegas you will be thrilled to make a trip to the Border Grill at Mandalay Bay. The food is exquisite and not a typical Tex-Mex mess of cheese. Dishes are authentic and well thought out. In addition, the kitchen consistently delivers from visit to visit. What makes the experience even more pleasant is the service. The wait staff is attentive, friendly and well-informed with recommendations from personal experience of food and or drinks for diners who have difficulty making their decision. Border Grill should be considered at the top of any diner's list in Las Vegas and not just as a Mexican option.

Everything was excellent but my boyfriend was upset because he wasn’t offered a box for his quesadilla and they took it off the table before we can say anything.

I’ve eaten here several times over a number of years. I’ve really had great meals and had every reason to return. However I was quite disappointed with our experience June 13, 2021.
The service started out well but our lunch took well over 30 minutes to arrive after ordering. We had a late lunch and the restaurant was not overly busy.
Our server was not overly attentive to our lack of food or offer anything in return for our wait.
On top of this, the food was ok, not as good as other visits. And the lunch price for their quesadillas was much higher than I recall.
My friends who went with me had not been there before and based on our collective experience, none of are likely to return.

We went for the border brunch and everything went smoothly since we had reservations. The small plates were delicious and just the right size to have room to order different items. Will come back again if I come back to Vegas again.

Tried out the $45 Endless Small Plates. You use the regular dinner menu and just tell them what you’d like to try. They bring out tiny portions of the entree. It was just two of us and we got two of everything at first. I wish we started doing one of everything first so we could try more before filling up. If you’re a big eater this won’t be a problem, though!

They were able to seat us earlier than our reservation since we got there way ahead of time. The patio overlooks the pools so it had nice views. Food was good, loved their fish tacos! Family friendly too.

Had a truly great experience at Border Grill and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We went with the intention of the doing the unlimited small plates and taste the menu. We were told that they had replaced that with the restaurant week menu. It could have been a very disappointing experience but our server talked to the manager and they were able to make the small plates for us. It really made us feel special and it was really nice of them to go out of their way to make it a great experience for us. The food was excellent as well especially the ceviche in aji Amarillo and the Yucatan pork. We will definitely be coming back.

We did the restaurant week menu just because usually they are smaller portions and to see if we would want to go back. It was AMAZING!! Started off with some margaritas with were both perfectly made. The food was wonderful! From the tamales to the tres leches, EVERYTHING was bursting with flavor. And the service was top notch. We sat at the bar and both bartenders were fantastic. They were naturally friendly and great at their job. I will definitely be returning!

The staff was very welcoming and friendly and on top of refilling our drinks and water. Now the food was off the hook amazing! The Yucatán pork was sooo delicious. The guacamole was fresh and the ceviche was flavored perfectly. Awesome crew at the border grill and reasonable prices. Can’t wait to go back.
