Great service & food. Very lovely atmosphere.
The service was incredible! The waiters suggestions were spot on and the food was absolutely amazing! Everything was perfectly made. Definitely going to be coming back more!
Food and service was excellent!
Only complaint was online menu has not been updated and some of us were disappointed with having to change our choices that we were looking forward to!
We had a great dining experience. Thoroughly enjoyed our food. Wait staff was appropriately attentive.
Great food on both the Mexican and Italian sides of the menu. Great service and nice atmosphere inside. Don’t let the exterior fool you, this is a top restaurant in Detroit.
Amazing Food. Strange location. Food was awesome.
Good food very nice atmosphere. Staff was friendly
The best meal I’ve had in a long time. From the drinks to the dessert. It was outstanding! Definitely coming back multiple more times.
The food was outstanding as always and service was fantastic
the food was great and our waiter had a nice sense of humor. we were with another couple and we enjoyed sitting and chatting in the nice setting.
Food was delicious as always and service was great. It was very loud that day.
Everything was great. Desserts were a
We weren't sure about the place when we first pulled up off of Junction. It looked closed up and the sign read to use the other door, around back. So we did. We found the main parking lot as well. It was not what I expected. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we went in. It quite nice. We arrived ahead of our reservations and we still immediately seated. Our waiter was very attentive and even let us sample a couple of the sauces. Being both Italian and Mexican, we ordered something of each. The simple sausage and peppers were excellent. I ordered a seasonal dish that was not the ordinary Mexican fare and really enjoyed it. My wife ordered traditional enchiladas in mole, which was new to her. We had couple of margaritas and finished with the tiramisu. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Top notch spot.
Great experience. Friendly management. Fast service. Wonderful Valentine’s meal.
Terrible service. Asked for a dessert menu and never got it after waiting 30 minutes. Asked for it again and still never got it. Friends credit card was charged an extra $50 for no reason. And the food was overpriced and not good, seafood dish was fishy and gross. Save your money and time and go somewhere else!!!
The food is outstanding! Especially the homemade pastas. Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. The only issue we had was we were sat close to the kitchen doors, so there was a lot of foot traffic coming by while we ate. It was the day after Valentine's Day so it was a full house, I imagine they would have had no problem sitting us elsewhere on a normal night. Would 100% go back and plan to do so. Another great perk is they have their own parking lot and they don't charge to use it. Food and staff were superb.
Nice for valentines day
Initially staff was unorganized. Seemed to overbook single reservation time. After short time, we were seated.
15 minutes passed before a server came to our table. Restaurant was maybe 50% full.
Initial item ordered from menu (permanent, non-special) was not “available.”
Food and drinks were great, once they arrived.
Server offered free dessert item due to our trouble.
Great, kind staff. Might not have been their best day as a group. Food was excellent and is only reason I’d go back to give them another opportunity at my patronage.
I’ve been wanting to try El Barzon for awhile now. Finally got my chance and it was good. I have been craving good Mexican, so I went in knowing I would order a Mexican dish, but they had a fabulous Italian special I wanted to try as well. So my husband ordered the Italian dish and I ordered the Enchiladas. Both dinners were good, but the Italian special was much better than the enchiladas. The bread basket and the homemade garlic butter they brought with the Italian meal was delicious.... The chips and salsa they brought at the beginning of the meal was just okay, in my opinion. Service was superb, and will go back again.
Rad food, get some
Very fun and interesting.
Such a great gem hidden in Detroit. This was a first time visit and I was overwhelmed by the food and drink selection and loved how we were greeted and the service throughout our dinner. Will definitely be back!
Hands down my favorite restaurant! The service is unmatched and the food is excellent.
If I could rate the food and service over 5 stars I would. Amazing place. Amazing food.
The food is very good with great, unique flavors. The staff is very friendly.
What a terrific place. Loved the food, the atmosphere and the staff. Interesting and exquisite combination of cuisines and flavors. If you are in the area and have never tried it, you need to, because it is a real hidden gem. You will not be sorry.
Food is always wonderful. Would have liked a round table but overall very good.
the staff was very good and the food was great. our first time here and we'll be back.
Had a wonderful bday dinner! The pasta is definitely the way to go. I got a veal dish but tasted 2 pastas and they were both excellent! I will definitely go back and get pasta!
What a unique way to experience Italian and Mexican cooking under the same roof! The three of us had Italian food this time, but I was still able to have my Smoked Jalapeño Margarita. The waiter charred the jalapeño, and then it sizzled in my drink! All of us had veal, and we split a bottle of Brunello wine, which was very reasonably priced. We all ended with different desserts. Because my husband and my friend were celebrating birthdays, they brought them on a huge tray with Happy Birthday written in caramel sauce. We enjoyed crème brulée, limoncello cake, and ice cream dipped in chocolate, with a complimentary flan to boot. Stuffed, but very happy. We'll definitely go back!
Good place. Great waiter! Really good food and drinks
What a great restaurant off the usual path. Looking forward to eating outside. Love the extensive menu! Easy parking in the back.
The food was amazing. The veal melted in my mouth and the mixto appetizer was excellent. I particularly liked the jalepeno margaritas
Our party included a 100-year-old friend, so we needed a quiet table -- it was perfect. Then they opened an unused door to minimize his trip back to the car. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Food good. Enjoyable --we'll be back.
Our first visit and we were more than pleased. Server Aleucis (Alec) was friendly, helpful, and spot on with his recommendations. His service was an important part of creating a fun-filled and enjoyable dining experience. The Italian sausage and dual-pasta appetizers were great. We had fettucine and goat chops as the main courses - both were superb. As folks who dine out once a week, we're not sure how this wonderful place escaped us for so long. We're already eagerly looking forward to our next visit. Tom and Carol.
Delicious food. Extraordinary service. Highly recommended.
The food just wasn’t very good. Everything was bland. The salsa didn’t taste fresh. Service was pretty good.
Service was great and food was amazing
The best service! They made us feel so special for my birthday! They treat you like family! The food is delicious! The pastas are absolutely fantastic. Everything we had we loved! Can't wait to go back!
Alex the waiter was the best!
