Perfectly enjoyable Valentines Day meal. Only complaint, if we are being picky, is that I thought the portion for the chateaubriand was a bit small for the price. Service and quality of food were top notch.
Food was extremely good and the service was excellent
We had a great after Valentines Day dinner there outside under the heaters!
Restaurant was amazing. Our server, Joseph from Chicago, was fantastic. Very professional, knowledgable and personable. The ambiance was very charming and it felt like we were taken back in time to old Phoenix. We loved it and can't wait to return for another fabulous time.
We enjoyed our evening very much, although we did think the food, though delicious, was a bit overpriced. We must say our waiter, Ryan, deserves a TEN rating...we was knowledgeable, professional, helpful and very friendly...he made the evening for us, and was the best we have ever had at El Chorro....thank you!
Great night, we had an enjoyable Valentine's dinner! All around recommend.
Valentine’s Day date
Excellent waiter. Lou I believe. Steak and Shrimp delicious.
It was my Birthday celebration with my besties!
We wanted to sit on the patio and our waiter was so nice, he brought us extra heaters. It was so beautiful outside we didn’t want to sit inside.
Our food was excellent, I had the Broasted chicken, my friends had the trout and salad with roasted chicken.
We had the Charcuterie, it too was excellent. There were four of us and it was more than enough with leftovers. The freshest cheeses and meats. Delicious olives etc.
Our drinks were excellent as well as the Birthday desert.
We could barely eat it we were so full,
El Chorro is one of my favorite restaurants.
I can’t wait to go back!
The broasted chicken reminds me of my trips to Italy!!
The mashed potatoes and green beans are still on my mind!
My only complaint is a $3 up charge for a tequila I ordered ‘neat’. When I inquired, the waiter said it was because they pour 1/2 oz. extra of liquor for drinks ordered neat. He added “ it’s done everywhere”. I seldom have seen this (and we’re frequent ‘fine diners’). I would have no problem if it was clearly explained on the menu or the waiter had mentioned it when I ordered. He did graciously delete the up charge from the final check.
Excellent service, attentive, but not annoying. Great fresh margaritas. Wish we could have been outside, but weather didn't cooperate. Enjoyed our sea bass and beef stroganoff entrees. Salads are really large...wish we'd split one instead of each ordering. Very enjoyable evening. We'll be back!
Perfect day on the patio!! Great service and delicious food!!!
Very disappointed. El Chorro used to be a landmark. Now it's simply a tourist trap. Terrible service, not wait staff, but kitchen. One hour wait for food.
Great trout- and sticky buns. Everything there is excellent. Beautiful view of Camelback mountain and grounds. Service is top notch and very attentive.
While the food and server (Joe from Chicago used to work at Disney) were both really fantastic, I’m consistently surprised and disappointed there is no espresso machine. For such a hot spot and fave spot of ours, it seems so antiquated to lack that option.
Food and service excellent! Eating on the patio was very nice with heaters and blankets provided‼️
Friends in from out of town. Great evening, excellent food, service and setting!
We are Az natives but had never been to El Chorro. I’m so glad we finally went! Everything was just lovely! The food, the views, the grounds, the servers, the fire pits, the offer of a blanket. Loved everything!
Excellent as always!
Reservation system excellent. Parking service excellent. welcome to restaurant excellent.
seated in "schoolroom," but hostess only asked if we wanted inside or outside seating. Room was unacceptably noisy. Hostess didn't indicate that outside seating was comfortable, despite cold evening weather. Cost too much to eat in a school cafeteria atmosphere.
Staff accommodated my (2) table change requests on site. We were impressed with our server Lou at table #300 who endeared himself to us
It may have been a bad night for the chef, but my roasted chicken was extremely dry and my husbands steak was mediocre.
One of our favorite restaurants. Our waitress Denise was amazing..., personable & very efficient.
My Caesar salad was less than good. Everything else was great.
I live here and when I have friends visit from other states, this is my go to place to show them the beauty that Arizona has to offer. The cinnamon buns are world renown. The food is always fabulous.
My son, his wife, and my husband took me there for my 92nd birthday. We all enjoyed it very much. The waitress even gave me a birthday dessert. We will all return soon.
Just a wonderful experience. Treated our young children like kings.
Guests from out of town. Perfect table by the fireplace. Awesome server. Great times!
So awesome! Sitting outside on the beautiful patio is a must! Server knows the menu. We ordered the prime rib, the polenta dish, and seafood pasta. All three of us enjoyed. The sticky buns were a pleasant surprise.
Our server, Denise, made our evening. This is the second time we have been seated in her section. Food was fabulous. We had out of town guests and they went away very full and happy.
Loved the smoked prime rib!
Amazing menu as always - sommelier might have been a bit more educated but overall a great experience - again
My family joined me for my 55th birthday and everything was absolutely perfect!
I enjoyed the beautiful changes that were made to the facility as well as the menu,... VERY TASTY!!
We will be back sooner than later.
Excellent food, service and wine!
Everyone went above and beyond to make our visit special!
I'm a frequent client at El Chorro and have never had a bad experience while there. I entertain a number of higher profile clients who want to have a great experience at a one of a kind location, and they have always been impressed with the service, food, and outstanding views. This is a place people remember, especially the sticky buns ! The history makes this a true Arizona Western venue of the Old West.
Great ambiance and good food. The outdoor dining would be terrific if it was a little warmer when we went.
Although we felt a bit rushed, the view, service and food were wonderful ! Lovely place to celebrate my birthday!
