El Torito Grill - Brea
To compliment the range of specialty items, El Torito Grill offers a wide selection of upscale margaritas, in addition to a complete list of Mexican beers and cocktails.
Very festive atmosphere! The food was delicious. We loved the warm home-made tortillas too!
The server, Chandler, was excellent! He was able to be very attentive even though he was extremely busy with a large party next to us.
My husband received his dinner 15 minutes after the rest of us. We ordered 3 dessert drinks and 2 desserts. The desserts came after we had drank the drinks. Our food was also not hot.
Good was not at all at good as a year ago. Just wasn't the same at all. Won't go back for a while. We used to go to often but it was disappointing
Our table was ready for us at our reserved time. The Store Manager was fabulous very entertaining. Our waiter was also very good.
Our server was pretty great and on top of things. Having fresh flour tortillas on the table was a nice touch. The food was good.
This is one of our all-time favorites. The warm, homemade tortillas and sweet butter are phenomenal. The shrimp enchiladas are the best, so much so, we look at the menu but continue to order them.
We love El Torito. Everyone we get , great food & amazing service .
Yes... the TRIO players are a great addition to the ambiance.. loved them.
First time user....Made reservations with Opentable and was seated immediately and on time! Saturday night at 7pm. May others were waiting. Food and see was excellent. Many table touches by our server and other staff. Will definitely go back to El Torito Grill-Brea.
Was there on a Sat eve with my family. We had a reservation and were seated right on time. Very crowded even for a Sat with a number of very large groups so noise level was pretty high.
With all that going on the service & food were great, and hard to beat the warm, freshly made tortillas.
We'll definitely go back.
Busy Saturday evening, had to wait a bit with a reservation but everyone pleasant. Table service was spotty but the server was very good and brought everything with enthusiasm. Drinks were delayed but tasty if a bit over-alcoholed. Best of all was table-side guacamole - best ever! So generally we enjoyed our dinner, but the service manager needs to be present and managing! Hey, what a concept huh?!
our usual meals and all four of us were happy with both the food and service
The food is super yummy!! I could eat their fresh, hot and homemade tortillas all day!!
Great service and food. This place is always good
Great Valentine’s dinner date!! Yummy food, great portions and service - as always!
Bad waiter. Did not bring us chips. Forgot order. Didn’t bring our bill. When we asked front desk to pay our bill they asked us what table number we were... as if we were supposed to know??
It was great and we were in and out in a hour
very good service nice and relaxing was happy with visit
it was girls lunch together and our server Scarlet was sweet and patient
We visited on a weeknight for dinner and were surprised that there wasn't a daily chef's specials menu. Historically, this El Torito Grill has had some impressive dishes on that specials menu. Still, you can find great tasting items on the regular menu.
Anthony was our server, he was outstanding! He was very attentive, anticipated our needs!
Great place, great staff, and of course wonderful food.
Salty CARNITAS. Generally overpriced. 2 of the least expensive meals, nothing else; $49 with 15% gratuity.
I got a chicken tostada. It was average. My friend did not like her chicken salad. She asked for dressing because it was dry. Chips and salsa were great. Tortillas that were put on the table were warm and seemed homemade. Delicious. Maybe other items on the menu are better. My friend who got the fajita burrito liked that.
Food and team is always great
Love the hand-made tortillas! We sat on the patio for a business lunch. The restaurant sits on top of a hill next to the freeway so it was a bit noisy but we didn't notice it after awhile. Serice was great and our waiter was very attentive. Would recommend for a casual lunch or dinner.
I picked this restaurant to celebrate the holiday festivities with my Booster Club Board. There was something for everyone, including children. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the freshly made tortillas. Our server was attentive! We did not notice that the restaurant had closed, we were having so much fun!
All of the food tasted wonderful and the portions were good sized. Our waiter provided good service, but was not very friendly and did not really check in on us once we were served.
Great food and drink. I visitied with my husband and mother in law. All three of us really enjoyed food and drink. Good draft beer and cocktails!
Met a friend at El Torito Grill for lunch. The food was outstanding and I love the restaurant’s creative approach to their tacos and enchiladas.
Great hand made Flour Tortilla’s, Fajitas we’re very good. Tamale & cheese Enchilada good. Like all the different hot sauces & butter for tortillas. Good Service. Nice atmosphere
The tortillas are everything! So good! The food is always pretty good and Taco Tuesday is awesome. Would recommend and return.
Salmon dinner was delicious!
Our serve Cesar did an excellent job as well as the entire staff. All entrees were excellent! Best Mexican food in Brea.
We were disappointed. Been here in the past and always enjoyed the creative meals, this time not so good. Our waiter was great but we did not enjoy the food not authentic nor creative like we remember for other visits. Don't think we will be coming here for dinner again.
Been eating here for years. Very disappointed in the decline of the place.
Much better than a regular El Torito. Salads are great. Comfortable place. Good service. The best freshly made tortillas you will find.
The Grilled Pineapple Agua Fresca was delicious! I would go back just for that! Our server Chandler was also the best! Very attentive and friendly.
