    What a hidden gem. We were there earlier it was not busy. The staff was wonderful and the food was amazing. We shared a watermelon salad which was unique and delicious. I had the Tris Pasta which is 3 different pastas and enjoyed it tremendously My wife had veal and as I thought it was delicious.

    Celebrated my 70th birthday for dinner at El Barzon. Did not disappoint! Table was ready upon arrival, staff was very attentive...especially our server, Irene, food was delicious, and the staff surprised me with a birthday dessert and sang happy birthday! The courtyard reminds me of dining in Puerto Vallarta. Home run! 🥰

    Service was excellent as always. Me and my party all enjoyed our entrees. The sorbet left a lot to be desired . They put it in these frozen fruit molds - sitting in bowls of ice. It made the sorbet hard/messy to was bc it was hard. So you had to hold the fruit down to get a spoonful of sorbet. The sorbet itself wasn’t flavorful. Which was a surprise bc I’m used to excellent desserts from this restaurant. All in all though, it’s still a great spot and I’ll continue to come back.

    Have been coming here for many years but had not visited recently. Reserved table for 10 and were seated immediately. Servers were friendly and attentive, and everyone enjoyed their food immensely. Love sitting on the patio!
