The food is great, but the portions are not very big for the price you pay. I like going there before a movie but not really a place to go just to have dinner.

The food was excellent and our waitress was great. The only problem was that the manager that sat us at our table sat us at a table that had not been cleaned and did not seem to even notice. The waitress apologized and cleaned up right away. The General Manager came over to apologize as well.

Tortillas and Flan
Just very good Mexican food at a decent price. The tortillas are to die for and the flan is wonderful.

Seating inside is pretty noisy, so the patio is a good alternative. Bummer that they don't serve freshly-made tortillas any longer with that chipotle salsa (back to chips). Service was good and friendly.

Errors and inconsistencies
I was very nicely received at the podium by the maître d'. We were escorted to our table where our waiter got our orders wrong, our drinks wrong, and seemed to avoid our glance.
I honestly dislike writing bad reviews, but I do want to give kudos to the front desk.

Food is consistently tasty.
Food is consistently tasty. If you like spicy, and I mean SPICY, try the Shrimp Diablo.
Service is usually very good but they seemed to struggle that night. No one knew who exactly was supposed to be taking care of our table.
This is the first time I have sat in the back portion of the restaurant. It was much more quiet and I was able to speak with my group.

Mexican food at it's best!
My family and I went here to celebrate my birthday. We sat at a table outside, it was great. The food is superb! I ordered a chili relleno. It was the best I have ever had! Good food!

This is a great place to go after a movie at Arclight Sherman Oaks Galleria. Margaritas and munchies are delicious....main courses, too.

Food okay, great customer service!
You can't really go wrong with El Torito as far as the food.
Where it shined was in the customer service. The wait staff was totally swamped, but they were on it. I also had a coupon that I couldn't print, and the manager just had me email it to him right then, and he honored it with a little more of a discount.
This place is obviously a hot spot, so if you're looking for a vibrant place on a saturday night, go here.

Not your typical Mexican Food
As a rule Mexican food is not high on my list of favorites, but El Torito's menu has such an assortment of temptations. The ribs are delicious.
