The staff here do an excellent job. They nailed service. The happy hour is a great value. The nachos with steak were just what we needed!

At first server was on top of it, but then there would be long periods of absence. My friend and I ordered the same fajitas salad. It was mediocre. All lettuce, missing several key ingredients - like avocado, and old tasting chicken. Dissatisfied with the meal. Cocktail was great.

Appetizers came with our dinner, restaurant prices, parking lot ambiance. We ordered fajitas for 2 and it only fed 1 of us, and we ate in the parking lot, plus kids were running around, and I couldn't hear my date. It sucked and no I will not recommend it.

Noemi was outstanding. Attentive. Courteous. Kept our glasses full and the table clean. We live close to Ontario but will come back to San Bernardino because of the excellent service

good Service, got our food fast and it was hot. They do use a lot of onions that the only issue for me.

My husband and I made a dinner reservation for dinner, we were seated near a large party and the server ignored us while he finished with the tab, it was probably a $500 tab he was about to make and that’s why he ignored us. Just the two of us sitting there, him walking by looking down...Not even a hello or Hola!! We were disappointed we had to walk out and the hostess told us, “have a good night! “
Never again will we go to El Torito in San Bernardino.
What a waste of time!!!

Cold soup was served to us, but the manager rectified it quickly. He was great. Wish the server could have the same customer service as the manager.

The pomegranate margaritas were super good as was the chile verde carnitas. If you haven't tried them yet you are missing out.

For Vets Day was great food and we didn't wait to be seated long because you now have a Wait List, nice. Server (295 Maria C) was overrun by a huge group but was tireless and did well under the conditions. As for recommending places, we don't really do that, and we only eat here once in awhile. The Vet Meal was great and the Carnitas Michoacan A+. And the Super Cad Margarita great too.
