    made online reservation with receipt. no record at restaurant. waited 1 hour got a table. the Margarita was good. the food was near to inedible. only the refried beans and the rice were good. the rest was truly rubbish. Oh, the chips were good. salsa was tame. I would never do near the place again. I truly cannot remember a worse meal than this one andd we love Mexican food.

    Our server, Maria, was very attentive and always checks on us. She was very pleasant and friendly with all the patrons she was serving that day. Most of the food that we tried were great. Few comments though were the steak on the taco station was not as tender and the tripas on the Menudo were a little tough. They also always ran out of the bowls for the soup. Everytime we go to the soup section there were no bowls. We had to ask a couple of people just to have the bowls refilled. The ambiance was good. The location has really great views. The floor though when we were there was a little bit sticky, so it kinda feel dirty.

    This is our favorite Sunday brunch restaurant. Our monthly brunch with our friends.and never disappointed us with the exceptional service of MARIA CRUZ. My favorites, Menudo, tamales and the seafood cerviche. Delicious FLAN and waffles with strawberries. The omelette station was great and the cook (I forgot his name) was pleasant. Keep up the amazing food and the best servers you have. Also, so lucky to be seated by the window and be entertained by the sea lions , scuba divers, kayakers and mostly the beautiful view of the Monterey Coast.

    It was not as busy as usual but still busy. I had a reservation and did not have to wait long for a table. Which was nice. The noise was as a bit too loud. The service was good. The food was really good as usual. I did have to wait a little too kind for my alcoholic drink. Overall it’s a good place to eat.

    Great service. Good food and great prices. Menu seems very much like Chevys; I wonder who came first? Nice view of the bay during the day. Free parking. I prefer this place to a restaurant on Canary Row! Meets or exceeds expectations in all areas

    We sat at the bar while waiting for our table and had a wonderful experience with an attentive bartender who made excellent drinks.  We considered just eating dinner there but then they called us for our table, so we moved. We had the worlds worst waiter who took forever to even acknowledge that we were sitting there. Then he pretended to be half deaf when we tried to give him our order and kept saying things that had absolutely nothing to do with what we were requesting. After 35 minutes of waiting for our food, we asked where food was and he claimed to have no idea. I suggested he go check and find out. 20 minutes later, our entrées were delivered but we never got our appetizer. We never could find the waiter. We had to keep flagging down other servers as they passed by. Then the entrée I ordered look nothing like the photograph on the menu and it was missing half of the items that were listed. My son received the wrong meal altogether, and I didn’t know it until later when I was looking at the menu to try to figure out what was missing from my plate. My meal was supposed to consist of a sliced sirloin steak topped with a shrimp salsa with a cheese enchilada on the side. The cheese enchilada was so tough I couldn’t cut it with my fork. I finally opened it to see what was wrong and there was a large brick of cheese that wasn’t even melted. My whole meal was cool to the touch. My steak was served like flat pieces of beef that were very thin and brown. Not the thick red juicy steak that was in the photograph. And the shrimp salsa consisted of three tiny specks of green bell pepper and that was it—no shrimp and certainly no salsa. I could go on but I think you get the idea. It was awful. STAY AWAY!

    Took forever to get our food. It wasn't very busy so not sure why it took so long. My steak fajitas was so tough I couldn’t eat it. Exchanged for chicken and it was delicious. They were short staffed or something.

    We once again enjoy coming to El Torito, although the brunch is pretty pricey these days, especially considering what we usually have. Our favorite waiter, Cres, was there so the service was excellent, as usual. The food was great, and we even saw some sea otters. All in all it was a great day.

    Absolute worst service I have ever received. Started with only a few of us getting the drinks we ordered. Only only 1 napkin per person. Appetizers came out with the meal (cold). No checking to see if we needed anything. No tortillas brought that came with the meal, Our entrees were cold. No drink refills. Food was OK. Oh and no toilet paper in any of the ladies stalls. When I brought it to their attention, they were in no hurry to resolve the issue. Sad thing, this was a birthday dinner. We didn't even stick around for dessert. First time in my life I left no tip.

    The service was good. The food wasn't. I had a chicken fajita- chicken was rubbery, rice was so salty I couldn't eat it. My partner had tortilla soup which he liked, but his bacon-wrapped shrimp were tough. Too bad, we were hoping for a nice place with good Mexican food, this wasn't it.

    It took approximately 15 minutes from the time we were seated until we were first approached by our server. That is an unacceptable amount of time! If it weren’t raining so hard, we were going to leave. After we ordered our drinks, it then took another 10 minutes to get our drinks. Once again, unacceptable! The server then brought the wrong beverage for our children’s meal. The chile relleno meal I ordered was the worse I have ever had. The thing is that the restaurant was not super busy at that time, and there is not excuse for the poor service. I was a server for seven years, and I understand that there are times that are very trying for a server when it is very busy, but, once again, it was not very busy. When we finished our meal, we were never asked if we wanted dessert, the server just brought the bill, and I had to ask to see a dessert menu. Overall, it was probably the worst Mexican restaurant I have ever been to, and I definitely would not recommend it to anyone. It was a very disappointing experience to say the least!

    The restaurant itself is very dirty, the windows, walkway and pretty much everything else. The steak was too hard to chew. The appetizer came together with the main meal, which we waited for a while. Food is overall very meh, for the price we pay. The view is nice but wish the windows are cleaned, it’s very dirty.

    We usually have no problems coming here. It’s one of our favorite spots for date nights. This time was very different. It was not busy at all and the service was just terrible. I tried to give our waitress the benefit of the doubt but she had complaints from everyone of her tables. She took forever to even ask for our drinks. Once we got our food my wife’s whole plate was cold. We asked to get it heated and the plate came back hot and food was still cold. Basically the microwave trick didn’t work. We were pretty upset because like I said it’s usually very good.

    When we arrived we were greeted, got to our table where the lights were out over the table making it hard to see. Due to poor light it was difficult to read the menu. No waters or silverware at any point until we asked once the food arrived. The meat was overcooked dry and hard, my order was completely wrong. Just overall disappointment. The manager was nice and gave us a discount on our overall dinner so the effort made a bit of difference.

    To me Sunday brunch is just okay! For $38.00 seems a little excessive to get old food that has been sitting for hours. Not sure i will be back anytime soon. While it was alright. But I guess the reason for the $38 dollars is because people drink Mimosas which none of us had so some money should be taken off for that. All the seafood stuff looked gross and old too which is a total gut wrencher to me personally. Not sure I will be back any time soon way over priced for sure. The reason I would not recommend this to any of my friends is because most of my friends could not afford this to be honest. $114 dollars for 3 people is way too much. I can assure you none of even ate $38 dollars worth of food. And the orange juice is gross not even real orange juice tastes really weird. I may come for the normal dinner but outside of that probably will not be back for the brunch thing for sure such a turn off! Love El Torito's and view of the ocean but just a NO for this brunch thing gross.

    Trust me, I have had some horrific dining experiences but this one tops them all. Waited 1 hour to be seated for our reservation. Didn’t get food for another hour and when we did, there was no silverware (they told us they were out and were cleaning some for us?!?!?!) service was nonexistent. Beautiful location but that is it

    We had reservations at 6:30 but were not seated until close to 7pm. The restaurant was extremely short staffed and despite ordering immediately, we still did not our appetizers (which was chips and guac) at 8pm. They also were not great about coming back round for water refills or give us more chips. I was very disappointed with our entire experience. We had children with us and had to wait over 90 minutes to get dinner. I would not go back.

    Waited 10 minutes for chips and drinks. 5 more minutes to order 1 appetizer and 1 entree to split between my wife and myself. 15 minutes to get the appetizer. 1 hour to get the entree. This place is always understaffed and the kitchen is always slow. Food is decent when you get it most of time, although their nachos had very little cheese and the crispy taco had a little meat, lettuce and less cheese that did not fill the shell. With so many other Mexican restaurants in town and local, we will go to them. Got some gift cards and thought we'd try El Torito again. I am a local, and I know most locals do no go there, so, besides all of the above, they are located in a tourist area and hard to get to. Not worth the trouble at all. Good food and service I'd drive twice as far, but won't go here again unless the change..... They used to be really good

    We had a reservation for Christmas Day and had to wait for an hour to be seated (with the reservation) and 45 minutes to get get our food which we ended up taking with us (so close to 2 hours) as there was no holiday ambiance whatsoever (the only decor was a small tree at the reception desk). By the time we were able to order they were out of the carnitas which we hadd been looking forward to. I really appreciate people who work on such a day so didn't want to make a fuss but my issue is twofold: 1. Upon arrival we were told that they were running behind and it would be a 15-20 minute wait which I perfectly understood but when checking in 50 minutes later we were told that they were still behind and that it would probably be another 15 minutes. 2. The atmosphere was depressing. A bland room with no holiday decor and the meal we were looking forward to wasn't available anymore. It still took 45 minutes to get the fajitas we ordered so we just took it with us to our hotel room. I do want to point out though that even though the rest of the staff wasn't friendly our server was very nice and we were grateful for that!

    We had a reservation and still had to wait for 20 mins. After placing our order it took them an hour to bring our food. It was a very bad experience. I should’ve known it’s Christmas Day.
