I love eating on the patio. We had a later reservation so the temperature was fine. The air cooler was a bit loud but our server quickly turned it off when we mentioned it. The food and service were spectacular as always. Thanks for a lovely birthday dinner.

This was our first time at El Chorro since it closed for a second summer in a row. The positives were the table service, drinks and food (except for the dessert, the brownies were DRY, but they took that off our bill). The negatives would be first the lack of available reservations between 5:50 and 8:0 pm, despite it being half empty during that time period (perhaps having trouble with adequate staffing?). Second would be the absence of valet parking. I was informed this was due to new owners (or was it management?). Third would be the lack of choices on the menu compared to the past, and last would be the increase in the cost of menu items. It has never been an inexpensive dinner, but the price increase was noticeable. Taking these into account, I don't know if I would recommend El Chorro right now.

Briefly this, the waiter Joe was awsome.
The food and drink came so fast you didn’t have conversation time.
Any executive chef would know that stroganoff is a Russian dish and does not taste like chop suey with Asian spices
Any grill chef would look at a 70 dollar prime grade rib eye so it is not full of tuff connective tissues or over fatty.
Any house manager would have removed or discounted my steak charge.
Any house manager would have called back this customer after they called the next day to see how my dinner experience was.
Our bill was over 425 dollars and any competitor in the area could have done better.
I’ll come back for a cocktail and the stick buns

Below is a prime grade rib eye. Not what I had.

The food was ok, we had chicken and beef. Both were cooked perfectly however the sides were bland without much flavor. We also had a Moscow mule, - no lime, just straight vodka flavor. Not worth it for the price, too bad the location is so prime.

Celebrated my birthday with my family and everything was amazing. The shrimp pot and sausage appetizers were incredible, the beet salad was the best we have ever had (such flavor) and we all enjoyed our entrees (lamb, rib eye steak, short ribs and Chilean sea bass). The service was on point with the food and location.. Last but not least the sticky buns were super delicious and a nice connection with their history as a former bed and breakfast. Couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate!

We have been to El Chorro several times over the years and, as usual the ambience on the patio was outstanding. Service also very good. Only concern is food prices, especially for meat dishes, have gotten quite high. $62 for "special" double cut (4 chops) was quite a bit for chops that were good, and cooked as ordered, but were not outstanding enough to justify price.
