Great food and fun ambience. Will come back to sample their extensive Tequila menu!
Dine out Vancouver menu amazing along with the regular choices. Staff and food always amazing
The fried Brussel sprout tacos were incredible! Service was excellent. Knowledgable staff!
Our server Fran was excellent!
There was a very loud crowd in the private room and it made it hard for us to hear each other talk.
Amazing, unique take of Mexican cuisine and top notch service to boot! We love coming here and have never
Love the service - everyone pitches in to ensure every diner has a good experience. Food is very flavorful and consistent in quality. Great tequila menu and fabulous spicy margaritas
1st time here, Ambience and decor was nice. Service was good. Food was a little bland, expected more flavor.
Awesome service and food! I wish I remembered our servers name but she was wonderful and went above and beyond. Best service I have ever had.
Always amazing food, drinks, staff and ambiance
Service was great. Food a little overpriced. Beef tacos too salty. Al pastor tacos were amazing.
Fantastic service and a great atmosphere. Great place for a good evening out. Drinks are fantastic.
El Santo was overall great! Food and drink good however we found a little a the pricey side for what you are getting.
It was a nice time though.
Beautiful place. Good food. Server was very polite. They made all the arrangements that we asked for with respect to our babies.
Only OK food, but quite pricey. Appetizer was small, dessert was undercooked. Tacos were ok, but small and expensive for what you get.
We were seated quickly
Server was attentive and helpful- explained a couple items I had not realized what they were
Food was extremely flavorful- I had not been here before and was happily surprised by the different twists on the entrees and appetizers
Great NYE vibe and atmosphere. The Pez Sable was amazing. Service was amazing for how busy it was
Just a great nite with great food and drinks
Food is delicious and soda is amazing. Portion is big for people who have small capacity. Two people ordered an appetizer and one dish of taco and some chiros and soda is enough.
Good, interesting Mexican food. Great cocktail list.
Excellent service and food
Lovely date night. Delicious tacos - both the cauliflower and Brussel sprouts were amazing. Yummy cocktails. Was relaxing and fun!
Always happy with El Santo menu, quality of food and excellent service! Highly recommend that you check out this restaurant!
Food was delicious and presentation was very nice. I loved that the menu was unique and offered items you dont see everywhere. Some of the people in the party with bigger appetites found the portions to be on the small side, but I though they were fine.
Service was fantastic and the ambiance in the room was great!
Will definitely be back!
Dinner with friends.
Fantastic food and service. Have been here multiple times and all the food has been great. Highly recommend.
Food was outstanding. Service staff was great. Cocktails were delicious. A bit crowded in there when we left but good overall.
way too noisy; this time server moved us from area that had been really noisy last visit to what was then a quieter area but it became very noisy too; conversation required shouting ... probably won't return
Went for an early dinner before seeing the Latin band “Locarno” at the Anvil Centre (which is just across the road). Excellent service, outstanding unique cocktails, delicious food and lovely decor.
The restaurant was beautiful - great decor and atmosphere. The food was mediocre, the meat in both the tacos and entree were quite dry. The pricing paired with what we received was not worth it.
Wonderful service, delicious food from start to finish, lovely cozy, clean interior and a great cause!
Excellent food as always, always enjoy dining here
Great drinks, tasty food...Pescado tacos are a favourite!
El Santo never disappoints! Great service (from people who seem to truly care), good recommendations, amazing food. Great value, too. It’s clear that the owner, chefs, bartenders and the entire team put their hearts into it. The menu offers comforting as well as more adventurous options — and there are lots of little creative twists. We felt welcome, cared for, and never rushed. Thank you, El Santo!
Excellent restaurant in New Westminster that serves high quality food in a very nice environment with fantastic service. We don't eat out a lot, but for special occasions we do and have always had excellent experiences at El Santo. Just took my wife there for her 50th birthday and they made us both feel special, especially her and that was important. Along with really good food they have a huge drink menu with a large variety of different Tequilas which are fun to sip like a good Scotch.
Awesome holiday lunch for our office team. thanks for having us!!!
Have been to El Santo numerous times but this visit very disappointing. Food and service both below the normal standard.
Everything was great, but it took a while to get and settle our bill. But overall great friendly service and good food.
Great experience! Only downside is the 90-minute seating limit on prime nights but the restaurant offered us seats at the bar afterwards. Fantastic ambiance, great food and drinks. Highly recommend El Santo!!
Too loud! Other than that it was all good. Not sure any of us would return though because of how loud it was. Couldn’t hear what was said across table without shouting. Not a place to have a normal conversation. At least not where we were seated - at the back in kind of a separate room
