We had dinner here for Valentine's Day at the last minute. Our other plans fell through and El Torito Grill saved the day and had an opening for our special day. Thank you - we will definitely come back!

Great find for my Valentine's Day dinner! Although the restaurant was understandably busy that night, the food and cocktails were delivered in a timely manner. Would definitely return!

We came for a combination Valentines / birthday celebration because I absolutely love the chicken enchiladas with creamy chipoltle sauce and the hot, freshly made tortillas with honey butter. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

Bar seating area isn't very nice or comfortable. Food was pretty good though.

The restaurant was crowded that evening.
They seemed very short handed and our server never introduced himself or said he'd be right with us. We finally called a manager over to take our food order.
Our table seemed forgotten most of the meal when we asked for another napkin it never came, finally a bus boy bought us one after asking again. Overall service was bad and from here on in will only go in the bar for drinks and food.
