El Coyote Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately for a 5:30 PM evening meal, the restaurant was packed. Service was marginal, two of six meals were burnt , and it wasn’t the best experience. Normally the food and service were above average. We will be back again to be Sure it wasn’t just a bad evening.
This is my favorite local place to eat for special nights like date night. The 1/2 & 1/2 Margaritas are my wife's choice every time we go. I had the steak my wife had the seafood enchiladas. Both were outstanding. The side items were great. I love the loaded mash potatoes. The service was quick, friendly and very personal. Our waitress must really enjoy helping people.
Love el Coyote and happy it is in my neighborhood. The margaritas are the best and the service is great. The food is yummy especially the steaks and quesadillas. I wish the chips were less salty. Their salsa is addicting. I recommend this place for any occasion.
Always great except this time. A new waitress i guess. She spilled my wine when taking it off the tray. We ordered macaroni that never came but was still on the bill. Nose rings & low cut shirts are trashy so I wouldnt expect someone who has one to be working at a place like this...
El Coyote has always been a favorite of mine, especially their steaks. I moved from Cincinnati and had not been there in several years. I was very excited to be in town and have my favorite meal at El Coyote with my daughter. I was surprised that the price of my favorite steak (petite filet) had grown considerably! I shrugged it off because I knew I wouldn't be back to El Coyote for a long while. Furthermore, although the food and service was excellent there was a long table of guests eating right next to our table that was extremely loud and obnoxious. It was very stressful and really affected my dinner with my daughter. We couldn't believe the restaurant did not say anything to the guests for the loud voices. I was extremely disappointed. If you are planning a romantic dinner at El Coyote, I would consider going somewhere else.
This is a go-to location for birthday's, etc. I have had good and not so good experiences. This was one of the best. We were there Sunday, October 8th at around 5:30. Our waiter was outstanding, the best I have had in years. You should be proud to have such an attentive waiter in your employment.
I haven't been there since 2005 and wasn't impressed. The waiter was not attentive for drinks or issues with our food. The guacamole was oily and gross. I could not eat my rice because I am allergic to peppers and it was not listed that way on the menu. Because the waiter didn't come back soon enough, he didn't ask if I wanted something else until we were finished with our meal. I wish it would have been a better experience.
This is our 2nd visit and we returned because our first experience was so positive. Very disappointed in food, services, and atmosphere on this 2nd visit. Food quantity was great, but there was no flavor. We ended up throwing leftovers out in the dumpster even before we left the parking lot. They did honor the reservation and we were seated promptly; service we friendly but slow. So sad that our experience this time was so different from the first time; We probably won't be back.
Disappointed. Medium steak was charred on the outside. Potato skins not flavorful. Sautéed mushrooms not seasoned. Not as good as it once was. Didn't complain, that's what's good about democracy, I choose not to go there again. Positive side was our waitress was excellent.
Hadn't eaten there since their Northern Kentucky location closed several years ago. Saw their sign and made reservations at Ohio location. The food was exactly as expected..SUPERB! Steak and chops the best we've ever had. Side items are delicious. El Coyotes tradition lives on.
We love the food at El Coyote's. It's so tasty. The only thing I missed from previous visits is the fresh shredded cheddar on their salads. They use precut bag cheese now which is a disappointment. Other than that, our meal was perfect. The booths are not comfortable. The booths are very tight if you're a normal sized adult and the high backs of the booths are very straight and uncomfortable. We wound up moving to a table to be more comfortable with our party of 4. If they remodeled the booths, I would give them a 5 star for everything!
