Its okay... – Some great Swordfish Ceviche but the Carne asada was a disappointment. Probably wouldn't return and rather try somewhere else. Service was pretty good and the Frida Margaritas were pretty good as well.
Very Disappointing – This may only be slightly better than a Taco Bell because of the good drinks and bartenders. The food was bland, portions were too small and there was a serious lack of ingredients going into our dishes. Needless to say, it was disappointing and overpriced.
PARTY TILL THE COWS COME HOME! – I had to follow a reader's suggestion and decided to check out their Latin night.
SInce we were hungry though we figured we'd have dinner prior to partying. The dinner was great all together. I had the chile rellenos/ Chile rellenos tell you whether a Mexican restaurant is good or not. They passed the test since the chiles were like the ones made in Mexico City, full of cheese, a bit spicy and a nice coating of egg whites. Most places dip their rellenos in a mixture of scrambled eggs, so when they are placed in the sauce, the egg mixture just falls off. That is my personal test and Diego passed with flying colors. There were a couple of small glitches with their "ceviche" but they were prompt to fix them. The service was great, very friendly staff. They were busy but it did not affect the service.
Now for the best part. Vida their Latin club was awesome. After dinner the server offered us complimentary stay for the club (more money for drinks).
The place was packed but if you park yourslef close to the bar, that is where the action is. Lots of dancing and partying with strangers. Amazingly we lasted til the end. The DJ played a great set including Vicente Fernandez as a partying rally.

Not your ordinary mexican fare – I'm not an expert on mexican food. I don't love it. But this place made everything right. We had a certificate or two, so we weren't particularly mindful of our budget. We were able to sample a variety of things and were pleasantly pleased with it all. The waitstaff was wonderful. We got there late and most of the crowds had left, so perhaps they could spend more time with us. Whatever. Maybe that's a tip. Anyway, it was a memorable meal and evening out for us.
Skip this restaurant – No, no, no. Spend your money ( a lot of it ) elsewhere. We are from Houston, and we know Mexican (& Tex-Mex) food. We also know good food. This place does not have it. The ambiance and service were OK, otherwise the rating would be one star. Everyone was disappointed with their entrees. I opted for the chef's 'Taster' (sample platter) of four dishes: sea bass (decent, though slightly overcooked), beef tenderloin (uninspired and bland lying atop some sort of odd bland paste), ceviche (this was the worst - almost nothing but cabbage/lettuce that tasted fishy - I'm not kidding), and fingerling potatoes (good, but are boiled potatoes really something a great chef puts on display?). Our complaints were all similar. The food was bland or ordinary. I can get a better meal from a chain restaurant in Houston. I rarely write restaurant reviews, but the degree of disappointment was so high, I just had to vent a bit. Choose a different restaurant in Vegas.
Great Mexican Cuisine – This was the first restaurant we ate at upon arriving at MGM. It's not your "typical" mexican food but it was awesome. They come out with chips and 2 different types of salsa and a serving of pico de gallo. They also have 3 seasoning dishes that you can season your meals with. My boyfriend ordered ate the pork and I had chicken tacos al carbon. I don't think the portions were small as the last review said. We went through alot of chips so by the time the food came we couldn't even finish our food - the chips were awesome! Our food was great and the waiter was great as well. He explained everything they had and answered all of our questions. It was a little pricey - about $80 for our 2 entrees. But I'd eat there again because I LOVE mexican food and they have great food and service.
Best Guacamole and Margaritas in town, crazy hot latin late night club, outstanding service – Diego is one of my favorite places to dine at when it comes to Mexican food. As a local it is rare that i make it out to the strip to eat but since i enjoy partying on the strip i occasionally make it out for dinner. The margaritas are fantastic and refreshing and the table side guacamole is the best in town. But my favorite thing Diego has to offer, is the Latin Late Nightclub, Vida on Friday and Saturday nights. The DJ is so talented and they play everything from salsa and meringue to reggae-ton, hiphop and spanish rock. I believe Fridays is some sort of ladies night since ladies never pay to get in plus they raffle off bottle service. The crowd is attractive and energized. Overall, Diego is top choice, the staff is so accommodating and friendly which makes the service great, the food is killer, and the ambience is spectacular.
Great place for eating and party all night – I loved this place, the day i went the staff was very friendly and invited me to come during the night. The food was great, the place is clean and the staff is very friendly. I dicided to visit that night and I stay until 5:00 am it was the best night in Las Vegas. I dance until they closed the place and the next morning I felt all my body ache for all the dancing. You need to visit this place if you want to eat good and para mover el esqueleto toda la noche.
Not your normal mexican – This is a diffent spin on Mexican which I was excited about at first. Service is okay, food is okay. The portions are small and expensive. We would have probably enjoyed it more if not so expensive for what you get.
