Sat outside on patio. It was delightful. Good food and service made it a great Saturday night out.
We have been to ElBarzon a number of times, unfortunately this last visit was probably our last, although our waitress was friendly, the service was horrible! The wait to even be poured our water was 25 min. Not to mention how long it took for our drinks and dinner. My salad never came and when I asked for it the waitress replied “oh do you still want it?” The food itself was simply mediocre. With so many new choices downtown to eat I will not be back to El Barzon.
The idea of Mexican/Italian fusion works. Service and the food were excellent.
Great food, gourmet Italian and gourmet Mexican. Outdoor patio is very pleasant, not too loud. Indoors is pretty loud during busy times. La Noria, next door, run by the same owner/chef, is our next destination.
Went for our anniversary and left full bellied and hearted! The food was delicious, from the chips and salsa to our meals to dessert. The atmosphere on the patio was perfect, cozy and inviting. I loved the plants throughout. We will be back!
Excellent food. We tried both Italian and Mexican dishes and enjoyed both.
El Barzon is magical. It is my go to summer outdoor dining establishment. Very romantic and intimate. Excellent whole sea bass (branzino)!
Food was delicious as always. Excellent service. VERY noisy this particular night and the women's bathroom could have been cleaner and better stocked.
You cannot beat the ambiance, delicious Italian and Mexican food and excellent service here at El Barzon!
It keeps us coming back!
very good place to eat, I loved it!
I have wanted to eat at El Barzon for years and I finally got the chance this weekend.
I ordered a pasta dish that was really good, but left me unfulfilled and I decided that particular dish was not worth driving 45 minutes for. I think I probably ordered the wrong dish and would like to go back and try other menu items.
When I made the reservation on open table the only available time slot was 4:45, and so that is what I booked. When we left the restaurant almost 2 hours later there was plenty of available seating. Needless to say, I would have much preferred to have had a later reservation.
El Barzon is our favorite. The food is excellent. The outdoor patio is amazing. You
Food and staff was great!! Will definitely be going back
Loved this place. First time and came recommended. Get the Biz De Pasta it was awesome. Love that they let us make larger reservation on opentable too!
Great food, ate outside which felt pretty authentic. I got the goat which was phenomenal. Great experience. My only complaint was a darn bee kept buzzing by me.
The food was incredible! The service was very personable and pleasant. Great energy in the restaurant as well.
MEXICAN OR ITALIAN WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE?
GOOD FOOD AND FRIENDLY SERVICE
Amazing food. Amazing drinks. Fun atmosphere! Exceptional waiter!
Service was fantastic. The food was average. Not very warm. Pasta overcooked.
Fantastic food and overall great dining experience. Patio dining exceeded expectations.
Can’t wait to return.
El Barzon was good but not great. Good food including the grilled watermelon salad. Terrific patio. Nice servers. Not outstanding.
We love this restaurant. Food and service is top shelf BUT the noise level is distracting. We try to make reservations during the week for early dinner due to this issue.
Looking for a restaurant to attend before the theater. Found this gem on Open Table. Was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, food and service. We told our waiter we were under a time constraint and they had our meals out within 10 minutes of placing our order. We will definitely return to this hidden oasis near Cork Town.
Full disclosure, we love this place and have been there many times. However, our most recent experience on a Sunday evening was disappointing due to extremely slow service. After being seated we waited 20 minutes for water and chips and another 10 minutes before seeing our server for the first time. Our arrival was not logged properly by staff, so while waiting we received an Open Table inquiry about why we had missed our reservation! Once ordered, it was 15 more minutes before drinks arrived. The food, when it came, was exceptional as usual. One incident like this won’t keep us away, but another one might.
I used to come here all the time before I developed food allergies. They already made everything in house so u didn't think it would be an issue. I was shocked they couldn't work with me!! We had to leave because our waitress took over 15 minutes to come by then went to ask the Chef what he could do for me and she never came back for another 15 minutes so we just got the check for our drinks which we didn't even want now that we wouldn't be eating!! Also, a couple of the people in my party came for the tacos which they said are no longer on the menu. They should change their online menu then since it lists that they do.
Went before a show at the Opera House. Amazing ambience in the out door patio! Our waiter was superb. The food was outstanding. Gnocchi in cream sauce is to die for!!
The food and service were wonderful. The Cucumber Cilantro Margarita was very refreshing. We really enjoyed the patio.
Everything was prepared perfectly and presented beautifully.
Service was great. The food was fabulous the outdoor patio was fabulous .
We had a group of 10 adults for dinner on a Thursday evening. We had a reservation and our table was ready when we entered. Every person at our table liked their choice of appetizer and entre. I had the Filet of Sole and a Grilled Watermelon appetizer. It was delicious. Our server was friendly and patient with us while explaining all of our dining options and explaining the menu. He went out of his way to treat us like royalty.
This was the second time I've eaten at the restaurant and when the group was planning on dinner together, I recommended El Barzon. Others in my party ended the dinner by saying they were bringing other family and friends here because they were so happy with the meal.
Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary by enjoying marvelous veal medallions, fantastic scalloped potatoes and sautéed broccolini. Our desserts were delicious: homemade caramel flan (on the house for our anniversary) and orange sorbet. It was too hot and humid to sit on the beautiful patio, as we had hoped. We will return on a cooler evening to enjoy the ambiance.
Hats off to our waiters, Cesar & Alex, who were top notch! Impeccable service and wonderful food. We celebrated a birthday and everyone had something different. All food was served hot and so very good. Best patio in town! Thanks El Barzon! One of our favorite “go to’s”😀! Our waiters went above and beyond for our bday celebration!
Excellent and Kathy was terrific! We will be back
We went to El Barzon based on a recommendation of their exceptional service and high quality food. The food was great, but unfortunately our server was either new or over whelmed. We had to ask several times for different things (additional drinks, dessert and the bill). I would be willing to give the restaurant another try based on the food, but knowing that the quality of service was not as advertised.
Flies everywhere swarming our table. Got the equivalent to veal saltimboca and it was 3 pieces of paper thin veal that all fit in the palm of my hand. Restaurant was EMPTY on a Saturday night. Wont go there again. Too many other good options in Detroit
1st time at El Barzon.....won't be the last! Love the mix of Mexican and Italian. Chef-driven menu.
Food was cold , no taste service fair very disappointed
Nice outdoor space for dining. The food was very good and unique (Mexican/Italian). I had the Sangria wine (red) was very tasty. The chefs specials are the one's to pay close attention too. Veal is well prepared. Only served up chips and salsa......I understand the Mexican flare but should have a choice for either chips and salsa or bread....depending on type of cuisine you are choosing. Overall a great place to dine.
This was our first visit and our server, Cathy, was amazing!!! They made my Wife's birthday dinner perfect and added a surprise dessert.
I really liked the food at El Barzon! The portion sizes were perfect and not too much food. The tortilla chips were addictive and the sauces delicious. I had the seafood ravioli which was flavorful and just perfect. We sat on the patio, which was fine initially until the flies showed up shortly after our plates. They were also extremely accommodating of our son's various food allergies.
