“Portion size is inconsistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I had the BBQ chicken flatbread which was delicious. My husband had the rigatoni with chicken total price of $16 and it was tiny! For that price, considering how cheap pasta is, we expected a large portion.

Walking out of the restaurant we saw someone else with the same dish yet it was a much larger portion...

The staff is really nice and they have lots of great half off food and drink specials from 3-5 during the week. Also good music.

“Balcony Seats Lousy and Too Loud for US!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

My husband and I are regular Las Vegas travelers and when Mandalay Bay and HOB featured Santana, this trip was primarily just to see him. We are in our early 60's and I expect that a lot of his fans are in the same catagory. We called Mandalay Bay directly 6 weeks in advance and were told all seats were sold out for the week we had planned, finally after some digging we purchased
2 tickets in the balcony costing $300.00 total. Well, we were next to a LOUD speaker and behind some pole and curtain and could not see the complete stage. A woman in the first row of the balcony was leaning forward and recording the show on her cell phone therefore blocking the rest of the view. Another couple kept informing the ushers, but she would continue as soon as they were out of sight.
To make matter worse the sound was set at such a high setting that my ears were hurting!!!
My husband is partially deaf was very uncomfortable and had to put napkins in his ears, even after he turned his hearing aides off.
There was plenty of empty seats, not next to speakers and with better views (don't know why seats are even sold that are behind curtains and pillars and do not have full view of stage).
Upon leaving after 15 minutes and complaining at box office we were offered better seats and
with better sound quality (Why couldn't be purchase these 6 weeks ago), we refused and were granted a full refund.
Also overheard the couple in line in front of us complaining of the same.
This was very very disappointing to us since this was one of our main reasons to go Vegas!

“Good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Stopped in for an early lunch, and it was very nice. Very laid back atmosphere. It was a little pricey for the simple things we ordered, but the staff, and atmosphere made up for it.

“SANTANA!!!!! the best show & venue in Vegas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Our trip to Vegas was primarily to see this show and my husband and I loved it! All 11 musicians on stage we fantastic! The energy in the place was spirited and contagious. Carlos amazed on the guitars - as always - and shared heart felt words of wisdom. Don't miss him when he returns later this year!
