It was a great dinner, the only thing I was surprised at, was how close they sat us to another table. The dining room was not full at all and they had us very close to two other tables. Overall, dinner was delicious and service was great.

Beautiful outdoor dining experience. I went there on an extremely hot day of 115 degrees, but with the outdoor air units and the umbrellas, it was very comfortable and relaxing.
The service was incredible, very attentive and friendly servers. Perry specifically was very informative about the restaurant menu and history (which was fun to learn about), and had a lot of recommendations of things for our-of-towners, like us, to do nearby.
Overall, it was a great first experience there, and I will be recommending it to friends.

Literally the best dining experience I have had in the phoenix area. Robert was our server and did a wonderful job. The entire staff was friendly. The food including appetizers, main course, and dessert were all great. Our party enjoyed the filet and shrimp pasta very much but the hit of the night was the trout. Sticky bread pudding to close out the meal was the perfect end to such a great experience.

Fell far below your usual standards. Two had trout and found it salty and over cooked my chicken was dried out and my wife had lamb chops that were overdone and tough to chew.

The menu is too pricey. The food was good. Beef Cheek special and Broasted Chicken both were very good. The chicken livers were awesome. Our server was awesome. I would recommend for a special occasion and will return again. Pricing is out of range -- a 7 oz. Fillet for $55 is at least $100 too much.

El Chorro is always a delight, but the new menu items were fantastic (watermelon gazpacho?! Incredible) and even though we could only snag an outdoor table for a 5:15 reservation on a 107 degree day the staff set us up in a shady, cool spot and we were very comfortable. Ty belongs in the waiter hall of fame. What an attentive and detailed server! He was a pure joy to talk to and engage with.

We met old friends for dinner. The food was excellent. We are vegan and they have a small vegan menu which is why we chose El Chorro. It was a little loud inside because of a party of 8 nearby. I would have loved to have eaten outside but it was just too hot that night. It would have been better to eat outside. They have large air conditioners set up out there but I was still concerned. Overall we would definitely go again.
