He restaurant was closed. No notice beforehand.
The restaurant was CLOSED!!!!!!! So we, 13 people, were stranded and couldn't eat together.
Booked way in advance for Christmas dinner for my family of 11.
I received a text message Wednesday afternoon saying they were no longer going to serve Christmas dinner. Try finding reservations for Christmas 3 days in advance.
I would give a 0 rating if it was available
This was a Christmas Day recommendation that I found through Open Table and the restaurant was closed on Christmas...we drove up and it was a ghost town. Open Table set me up with a reservation for noon, gave me a confirmation number, and reminded me about the reservation on Christmas Day. Fortunately my brunch party was flexible regarding the change but it was an inconvenience and embarrassment .
I was very disappointed. Food was over Cooked. I had shrimp, my wife
Had Beef & my guest had Salmon. All the dishes were overcoked. Beef was
Went with my fiancé for the brunch. The hostesses were great; the young gentleman the brought out chips and salsa, and made sure our table was clear was excellent; our server was horrible; she did not check on us once; she only came back to bring us our bill. We had to ask the young gentleman to bring more champagne because the server never bothered to do that. The manager did come over and apologize to us for the service; he comped our lunch and gave me a guest card to come back. The manager was very sincere so I appreciate that.
Great overall I don't like the large party gratuity they force on people. I am bringing you business but your charging me. Maybe pay your servers A living wage.
The prices are a bit high for the quality of the food. The night we went, there were a few tables of screaming children, which made it difficult to have a conversation.
I've been going to El Torito Grill for 20+ years. The food has gone seriously down hill. On top off the low quality of the food the last straw was that El Torito Grill got rid of their classic honey butter that they served with their tortillas. No more honey butter and poor food quality means no more me.
I don't mind paying for a good meal. But it's sad to see that prices have gone up so much at El Torito and the value of the food has gone down so much.
Friendly service and delicious food! Handled a crowd of 10 without a hitch.
Went on Sunday, not knowing that the restaurant had a Champagne brunch buffet. Delicious breakfast, lunch and dessert items to choose from. Went there for Gram Gram's birthday and the waiter made it fun and exciting, including a cocktail for the birthday girl. Waffles, Churros, Chile Relleno, cheese enchiladas, shrimp, beans, rice, tortilla chips, chicken, ribs, fish and Italian cannoli's (which seemed out of place), were the choices for the day and it was fun sampling a little bit of everything. Would definitely go back for the Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet.
Great food, great service. Fresh, litter versions of typical Mexican food. Great salads, soups and the best fresh made tortillas too.
Birthday celebration went well. The food was very good and the restaurant provided flan for the people having birthdays
Prompt service, manager stopped by to say hello. Had delicious shrimp enchiladas. Reasonable prices.
When I suggest we go to El Torito Grill, many people say that they really don't find El Torito to be that special, I have to emphasize that this is El Torito Grill and not related to El Torito. Even more confusing is that they both have a location in Torrance on Hawthorne Blvd.
The food here has always been wonderful from the homemade tortillas to the tender, flavorful fajitas (I especially love the beef and shrimp combo). The guacamole is made fresh at the table side and the corn cake that comes as part of many of the combo plates is a special treat. Be sure to have both the flan and the churros for dessert.
