I went to El Chorro with high hopes to celebrate my mom's birthday. After a long day at work all you want to do is go to a nice restuarant where you can go relax and enjoy some good food. But unfortunately our experience at El Chorro was just the opposite.
After we got seated our server kept on coming to the table forcing us to order food. When you go to a place like this you want settle down, have a drink or two, order some starters and then main course. However right after I ordered the drinks within few minutes we had to order starters, and within a minute she came back to the table and asked if we were ready to order our main course. I felt extremely rushed, and all I wanted to do was to walk out of the restuarant.
Anyway the server said we will get you some complimentary sticky buns which we never got. We got our drinks, and starters and within 10-15 min we got our main course. My reservation was at 7:15 pm, and we were done with our dinner by 8:15. Seemed like they just wanted to get us out of the restaurant. The server kept on hovering around the table waiting for us to finish so that she can bring us the check.
The table next to us where 2 couples were seated were treated extremely nicely by there server, and the seemed to have enjoyed there food.
You dont enjoy your food when you are have a bad experience.
I shared my experience with the manager, and she said I am sorry i will give you some sticky buns to take home with. What they dont understand I was not there to have complimentary sticky buns but instead have a good experience, and by giving me a box of sticky buns wont change my experience.
So overall a bad experience

Everything was good, except wish we would have had a better view of the mountains.
I had asked for outdoor dining, and my request was honored.
Maybe more sticky buns!

The whole experience was phenomenal, the service was wonderful (shout out to our server Stephen), the food magnificent and the ambience was truly lovely. If I were to make one tiny criticism it would be that we were seated very close to another couple when there were plenty of open tables. However on mentioning that to our server and heading to the bar for drinks, the manager came over and apologized (not necessary!) AND comped us our cocktails! Really couldn't have asked for more, the staff are polished and professional and really want you to enjoy yourself, which we absolutely did and we will certainly be back!

We arrived for a birthday celebration about 5 minutes early. The hostess told us she was checking us in but that our table was not available yet. She told us we could wait in the bar area. We went into the bar and waited and waited and waited. Finally we inquired and the hostess was very rude. She acted as though we had not checked in. I received a phone message wondering if we had decided not to come because we were over 15 minutes late! The hostess never apologized and acted as though we had never checked in.
The food and ambiance st this restaurant are wonderful. Our waiter was wonderful. The manager did come over to apologize and offered to Comp appetizers. However, a restaurant of this caliber should not tolerate a hostess this incompetent and one who will not admit her mistakes.

Good food and ambience, but felt that we were being hurried out so the table could be used for a second sitting. Very disappointed that espresso coffees are not ever available, undermining the experience and quality of the restaurant.

Disappointment. The Hostess was rude and not hospitable. We chose this place to have a nice relaxed dinner out after a last few stressful day. The service was not at par with the price we paid. We were eating dinner and the staff started cleaning the tables around us and we were forced to eat fast(we came in at 830 served dinner at 9 and were done by 930). It was very disappointing as I was trying to have a nice relaxed night out with my husband. We went to elements last year on Valentines Day and their service was amazing.
I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone .

Pre set menu for Valentine’s Day, which was not worth the money we paid. Steak was dry and well done, they ran out of the dessert I’ve ordered. Left disappointed, will not be back in the near future.
