A "GoTo" restaurant in Scottsdale. Always good. I'll keep on coming back.

Very disappointed. We always try to make El Chorro part of our dining experiences when in Scottsdale. Right at the beginning I knew it wasn’t going to be a good evening when our Open Table reservation was discovered to have been made for a week later than I thought I had. I was given a blank stare by the young hostess and essentially told we can’t help you. After the manager got involved we were accommodated in either the main dining room or in the bar. We chose the bar. It was then that things got worse. The servers were pleasant, but unfortunately the food was room temperature at best and lacked any flavor, especially the Caesar salad. After the dinner I realized it might be time to move on to the thousands of other options Scottsdale has to offer.

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
