Odd mix of Italian and Mexican. Restaurant week was a limited menu, but food was decent. Disappointed only one desert available early in the evening.

I just kept feeling rushed when your restaurant was empty...very uncomfortable. They kept asking me if I was done with guacamole that I was literally still eating. Fine dining is supposed to be an experience. You should not make your guests feel rushed. Bad for business. It was like the two waitresses couldn't get the concept that I wanted to eat ALL of my chips and guacamole! The linguine was OK at best. Not what I had in mind whatsoever. The server was dry with no personality the whole time and also made us feel rushed.

We were there for Detroit Restaurant Week so it was a limited menu, but it was amazing. We will definitely be back to experience the regular menu.

This restaurant exceeded our expectations. Delicious food. Outstanding service. Our server loves her job, and it showed. Value for the money = average. The prices should be a tad lower, especially for the low rent in the urban neighborhood. Try it!

I love El Barzon andhad just finished telling a friend of mine about it when I noticed it was a part of Detroit Restaurant Week. She was from out of town and she was super excited to try out one of my favorite spots. The reservation process was easy with Open Table and as usual the entire staff was wonderful. We were even seated early! The food & drinks were outstanding. I know I’ll be back and will continue to bring guests from out of town so that they too can experience a true Detroit gem.

Went during restaurant week so the menu was limited. Will try again when there is a full menu. Service was outstanding, the food we ordered was good but choices too limited.
