I made our reservation online. It was very easy to use and could not have turned out better. Our service was excellent and of course the food was awesome !!!!!! A little pricy to go all the time but that just makes it more special when we do go.

The food I had was not near
The food I had was not near as good as it use to be! The reason I went there was to get the Seafood Enchiladas in the awsome white sauce I use to get.......NOT EVEN CLOSE!! Whoever changed the recipe screwed up the meal!!

Perfect dining never changes
ElCyote was great 20 years ago when we first started going there. Our latest experience was as if time stood still. The steaks are better than any in the city. The so called steak houses have nothing on ElCyote. The service and atmosphere are relaxing the margartitas may be the best in the world.

Our first visit included some
Our first visit included some great food, service and atmosphere until a kid behind me started kicking and bouncing against the back of my booth seat, even after I asked twice to please stop - and finally after the 3rd time his parents moved him to the other side.
Parents: If you are too busy with your devices or each other to interact with your kids, or not teach them manners or how to behave in public - which means using inside voices and not bothering everyone around them with loud games, running or bouncing all over because they are bored, then you should get a sitter or stay home with them!

Such great food, I normally
Such great food, I normally hate pork chops, yet for some reason, I love theirs. Add a 1/2 and 1/2 margarita and some excellent salsa and you've got the perfect meal. Great spot if you're planning to see a show at the Anderson Center too!

Want a great steak but don't want to dress up? Dining with friends who are more in the mood for Tex Mex? Have a couple of reasonably well-behaved young kids to bring along? This is your place. Had not been there in years until our recent visit. Now we will have to find excuses to go back again soon. Skip the chains and patronize this wonderful family business instead.

The 8oz Sirloin is a nice-size
The 8oz Sirloin is a nice-size meal, very tasty and they actually know how to cook it as Medium instead of what so many call Med that is actually a bloody, med rare. Although delicious, the steak fajita my husband got was not the expected still-sizzling type, but instead came plated and fully cooked. For a chain-style restaurant, it's quite good.

Pork chops were the choice with one order of the halibut, and were outstanding. Wonderful meal and great service from Kirk.

We moved from Cincinnati over
We moved from Cincinnati over 10 years ago and on a recent visit we met old friends at El Coyote. I was very pleased that their signature fajitas were as good as I remembered them. The meat was tender and tasty and the portion size was large. They used to be known for their macaroni and cheese and mashed potato sides and I was pleased to find out they were just as good as I remembered. Our server was attentive and her great sense of humor added to the good time we had at dinner. Overall, this is a great place to get a good steak meal in very friendly comfortable surroundings.

The service was great! We were sat right away, and was greeted at our table in a timely manner. Our server was not pushy and gave us time t decide what we wanted to eat. The food came out in a timely manner and was hot and tasted good. Highly recommend the restaurant to friends and family.

They set us at a booth ..
They set us at a booth .. Knowing we wanted a chair to be able to strap our 22 month old in .. She wouldn't sit still .( so we couldn't enjoy it as much as we would have liked ) .. Other then that the food was amazing the waitress was awesome ... Will definitely come again ... But will want a table so we can put her in a high chair

Great service at the bar!!
The food is always great at El Coyote, but what really made our night was the Service! Lesa was excellent and made our dinner top notch. She was always on top of service with a great personality to match! I highly recommend if you dine in the bar, ask for her & you will not be disappointed!! Thank you for a wonderful experience Lesa!!

El Coyote 7-6-13
Group of seven selected various menu items and all but one was fabulous. Our reservation was 5:45 and restaurant was not crowded but began to fill about 7:00. Our waitress was very good and the food came to the table hot.
Like many other restaurants prices are going up on food and adult beverages seemed a little high.
Overall this is a good place to get good food, especially steak.

Gluten Free Menu
Very surprised and excited that a local tex mex joint would have a gluten free menu. My wife was ecstatic and it made our trip worth it. Food was good and decently priced. Kids meals were reasonable unless they wanted a drink which added $2.29. Portions were generous all the way around. We liked it and would go back if in the area.

The service was great, the food was even better... loved it all especially the pork chops!

Good Tex-Mex, steak, and margaritas
We have been coming here for a long time. El Coyote is a chain, but this location is superior to others I have visited. I like their Tex-Mex, my husband comes for the steak. The steak is generously portioned and high quality, but not cheap. Good house salads and side choices, excellent frozen margaritas. They serve chips and house made salsa that are good, too. Nice ambiance and comfortable bar, service is reliably high quality. Not an inexpensive night out with margaritas and steaks, but one of those places where you feel your money was well spent, rather than spending a lot and feeling like what you got for it was run of the mill.

Not a Mexican food lover, but I do love a great steak and the Anderson El Coyote can make a great steak cooked to order. Had the Filet and it was buttery smooth. The salsa and chips you receive for free are, in my opinion , the absolute best in the city. Our waitress was fantastic and the service was great.

Delicious and Love the Mash Potatoe
It's been some time since we have been to El Coyote. Our previous vist, we were disappointed with the mashed potatoes as it seemed they weren't making the special homemade ones. This time though we all AGREED THE POTATOES ARE BACK. YEA!

Great drinks and apps!
The stuffed avocados were delicious! They might be a little spicy for some, but REALLY good!! The service was great, friendly and fast! Our waitress even introduced me to what may now be my favorite drink, called Angry Balls. It's hard cider and cinnamon whiskey. The dinner was good. I had the tilapia, my husband had the pork chop. The tilapia was good, but the pork chops were nice and juicy! The chocolate lave cake is to die for! Perfect for chocolate lovers! They have a dinner special option for the Broadway series at the Aronoff. You can get an appetizer, two dinners and dessert for $39.99. Very worth it! Overall, it was a great experience, and I will definitely be back for the avocados!

Great as Always!
I have been to El Coyote many times with my wife and when we were dating, Great food, fair pricing and excellent service!

A bit too noisy for conversation
Very good food and service...just a bit too noisy for a dinner conversation to happen.

May I recommend the pork chop
The title is somewhat of an inside joke. I love pork chops and I know where to go in Cincinnati to get the good ones. So when my friends ask me what is good on the menu, they already know what my answer is likely to be. At any rate, I love El Coyote's pork chop and it is arguably the best in this area. I also like the fact that they have added combinations to their menu. So, now I can get their delicious 9 oz. chop and add my other favorite dish which is their stuffed chili relleno. You can also add a chimichanga, stuffed bell peppers, shrimp and a few other things, I believe. The service is always top notch and the bartenders are generous. This is definitely one of my families favorite places to dine. You won't be disappointed.

Looking for great food
The El Coyote is my favorite restaurant in Cincinnati. My husband and I have been going there for years. There's nowhere you can get a better margaritta ! It's the best! The food is great! Consistently great! Never had a bad meal there. Huge portions! Always enough to take some home for lunch the next day. Service has always been great! I couldn"t think of a negative thing to say about the place . Wouldn't change a thing.
