    We used to love this place when it was in forum shops. The new place is noisy with no ambiance I used to go there for the small plates which they don’t have anymore. No frozen margaritas. To get to a bathroom down two flights of stairs and way down the hall. I would say this place is little more than ordinary!

    We thought this would be an upscale, fresh and healthy Mexican food restaurant. It was mediocre at best and did not match up what we expected. We also had a gluten allergy and they had almost no options. Our server did take the allergy incredibly seriously and was very good with what he had available to him. Wouldn’t go back.

    We went to enjoy the unlimited brunch before a football game and were really disappointed. The food was extremely slow, like 30 minute wait after we ordered. So in the 1.5 hours we were there we got two rounds of food, not what we were expecting with an unlimited menu. All of the food was cold and one dish was even completely uncooked, literally raw batter on a plate. Maybe they are understaffed which I can empathize with but we did not find this place worth the time or money.

    Food was really disappointing- ordered the prime rib tacos and they were dry and very strong smoke flavor which felt like I was eating a cigarette . The other meat dishes were dry and cold. Definitely not returning there anytime soon.

    We did the brunch menu. It was so good. Not all the dishes were great but we loved the little plates and tried it all and then ordered more of what we liked. Service was great! I definitely want to go back again, but I can’t afford to go back again soon.

    I usually hate to post somewhat negative reviews, but unfortunately I think this is warranted. Now I want to be completely fair so I'll provide the good, the bad, and the ugly from my recent experience. GOOD: the staff was incredibly friendly. My reservation was messed up and they tried to rectify the issue immediately which I truly appreciated. They eventually found me a table outside and was genuinely apologetic for the error. Also, the gentlemen that waited on my table was incredibly courteous. I always appreciate good service whenever I dine out. It's all part of the dining experience. Lastly, the location was pretty cool as well. It was right next to the Mandalay Bay pool so it was great ambiance and sightseeing while having my meal. BAD: after reading all the reviews, I was pretty excited to try the weekend brunch menu. The sample sized meals were okay. Not great, but okay. I guess I set my expectations way too high so I was somewhat disappointed in the quality of the food. Especially for a city like Las Vegas where great restaurants and good food options are in abundance. UGLY: Maybe I came during the busiest time (weekend Saturday brunch), but the server for my table was running around super busy. So he only had the opportunity to swing by my table intermittently. It wasn't like he was providing poor service (in fact great service), but I just thought he was just overworked monitoring a fairly large section. So kudos to him for swinging by my table when he could. Perhaps they were understaffed that day. Who knows. But when you order off the brunch menu you are only allowed to order 3 to 4 dishes at a time. So since most are bite-like portions and the server only visits your table once every 15-20 mins, its really hard to enjoy the meal. Lots of waiting time. What made it even worse is that 3 of the 16 available options were not available. And of course my luck, two of the items I really wanted to sample off the brunch menu they ran out of that day.

    Creative menu on there small plate brunch, only the steak and eggs and regular coffee failed to meet the level of everything else. The shredded beef (steak) had to much vinegar and the eggs seamed to be powdered (another dish with eggs was real). Coffee was not hot and regular sugar was not available(Splenda and Raw sugar) Now everything else was very tasty, Chilaquiles, Drunken Peruvian French Toast was perfect not to sweet and heavy. Prickly pear parfait was very good. Brunch here is a way better choice than a buffet anywhere else, I don't eat at any.
