The bar was full of junk and back of house supplies. Our bartender addressed us after being seated for ten minutes to get drinks. Then one more time to take our order…another 20 minutes after drinks. We were then never addressed again. Several staff were behind or near the bar but made it a point of not speaking to us. The food was okay but not worth the price. No one bussed our plates and we had to sit with very limited space to eat among our food, used plates and all of the other things and empty boxes on the bar. We’ve never felt more ripped off on a night out and will never return again. Terrible experience.

Always great food and service, but this visit was a bit off. It was extremely busy and it took a while to order and receive our appetizers, dinner and to get the check. My ZUPPA DI PESCE WITH BLACK INK LINGUINI was very good flavor wise, but it had too much salmon and not the usual number of shrimp, mussels and scallops. All the pastas, the FILET BRONZINI (SEA BASS) and POLLO AL LIMONE were all very good (as usual). We love the outdoor patio. We will be back soon.

We were promptly seated for our 2 pm reservation, but didn't get to order drinks until 37 minutes later. Only special brunch menu was available. Half the drink and food orders came out wrong-likely due to table and noise levels. I really like this place, but will not be back for a holiday...not worth the trouble

He made our Easter Brunch at El Barzon a wonderful experience. Food is absolutely delicious. We had the enchiladas suizas and the tamales. The drinks, although delicious, are a bit expensive, $16 for a margarita is a bit steep. Otherwise, and excellent place to dine

My servers were very good in making this a special and memorable evening. The food was very delicious. The restaurant interior is a work in progress needing some updates which I am sure will take place in the future. It did not take away from our celebration. My family had a great time.

Legit Italian dishes including a full veal service. Real Italian places serve veal, all others are posers. Amazing service and great wine selection. Go the back side of the building…what you think is the front is not and it almost scared some of my party away. Go around back down the alley and then to the right. Trust me.
