    Took my mom for Mother’s Day. We had 12:30 reservations but we didn’t get seated until 1:40. They had stopped putting brunch food out so we paid for brunch but nothing was available and they refused to put anything else out. Very disappointing.

    Reservations are pointless if the time means nothing. I made reservations for my daughter and I on Mother's Day for brunch buffet. I left after waiting 45 minutes. My table was ready an hour past my reservation time. Utterly ridiculous. I would barely even have time to eat at their Sunday brunch which was my whole point in going. Terrible customer service. It was hot and chaotic in there anyways. Super disappointed considering I was looking forward to it for weeks and it was supposed to be a treat. Boooo El Torito, boooo!!!

    I know it was Mother’s Day so I expected it to be busy but I had a 12pm reservation and was told they were running a half hour late. Ok I accepted that but then when it came time to seat us they tried to put us outside in rented tables and chairs. We were finally able to get a table inside but had to split our party or we would have to wait over an hour longer. The buffet was supposed to be until 2pm. We finally sat down around 12:30 by 12:45 they were running out of items. They were very short staffed. I felt bad for the servers who were working. We had a great server and she really took care of us I believe it was poor planning on management. Too many reservations were taken and not enough food was ordered. Management should plan better for holiday crowds like this.

    We arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and was immediately told they are running behind on reservations which is understandable being Mother's day. I asked about how long are they behind and was told 10 to 15 minutes past your reservation time. At the 15 minute mark past my reservation time I went to check with host and I was told there was only a few more people ahead of me. We weren't seated until 1 hour past our reservation time which wouldn't of been an issue if they were upfront about it. The food was great from what I was able to have because they kept running out of food because they say people in waves instead of staggered so naturally food ran out and there would be 15 minutes before it was refilled. We aren't even able to have the premium food offered for mother's day. The food was great but it just seed understaffed and they tried to pack to many people for what they could support because the staff was having a hard time keeping up.

    El Tortio's brunch was a great experience. They servers kept our glasses full with the bottomless mimosa even though they were busy and it was Mother's Day. We will definitely be back. It would be awesome if they had the bruch on Saturdays also.

    Even with a reservation we waited approximately 20 minutes to get seated. The food was either cold or several trays were empty. Self serve Drinks were left out without being replenished and no cups to use.

    We went for Easter brunch which was chaotic, the manager went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our meal. He went above and beyond amid the chaos he was directing. Most managers would have said too bad when hearing my complaint on such a busy holiday, instead he immediately remedied the situation. BRAVO SIR!

    My husband got sick from tri tip. Most of the items that I ate fasted watered down. $259 for 4 people is a lot of money for four people what didn’t eat a whole plate of food, not that we didn’t want to but because of the taste and 2 glasses total of champagne. The Ontario location is better all around and I

    We were sat and waiting about 15 minutes for a server to approach us. They were worried about putting a large table together and getting their order of drinks in before even approaching us. We never got half our drink or let alone any silverware. We had to use the spoons they offered at the dessert table in the buffet.

    I made a reservation for 6 & arrived on time & was taken almost immediately to our table. The hot food on the buffet is now “hot” and not lukewarm as before & the choices are numerous. Traditional Mexican beverages at a serve yourself table. Lots of desserts to chose from. Our server was awesome & everything was so good & all in my party enjoyed their choices. I will return to this location again & again.

    We booked on opentable for Christmas, so was really surprised when we got there that it was buffet only...Since none of us drink the unlimited mimosas that came with the buffet, the $36 price tag for a buffet of tacos and enchiladas was really high . Service was great and the food was really good, but it was very exspensive for mexican food.
