Had a Reservation for father's day at 8:pm, got there early at 7:15 and still wanted me to wait for 10 more min. Wen it was 8:15. Disappointed 😞
Good food presentation on the plates. Food was hot and service was very good. Servers were polite and friendly.
Everything very good 😌
Lo único que le falta un poco mas limpio!
Good ambiance & excellent service at good prices. Worth going there!
The food has maintained its quality since the pandemic. Covid protocols are clearly in place. No waiting was a big bonus.
AC was out of service otherwise woulda gave it 5 stars.
Our server was very busy so our wait time to order desert, ask a question or just check out was a bit much. We had to ask other workers for help with these items. And, we did not receive any type of apology from our server.
Lots of people and staff seemed a little overworked, but still very good and attentive. Hospitality great from each staff person. Food yummy and generous. Gorgeous view. Thank you for being open and continuing to be a great place to eat and meet with friends and family.
Waitress or lack thereof was horrible. Either she woke up not wanting to wait tables or had a personal vendetta against me because our busy busboy waited on us the entire time we were there... I wish I had asked for his name, an attentive older gentleman who made my mom’s birthday celebration brunch very pleasant.
Servers totally forgot about us, time-after-time. We had to keep going to find them for help. To be seated, to get menus, to get drinks and on-and-on.
Getting a table by the window is quite popular here. Hence why I made a reservation in advance. Only to be told all the window seats were taken when we arrived. As soon as we sat down in another booth, not even five minutes later a table by the window opened up. We should have been able to get that table. Instead the people behind us without a reservation, got it. I felt kind of slighted but overall the food was delicious and our server was wonderful.
We asked our waiter twice for a water and orange juice but seemed to always forget, yet was serving all other tables around us. They had him also working the bar so there is the issue of being under staffed. My friend ordered the huevos rancheros and received on her plate a strawberry that was molded! The strawberry was cut in half so the cooks did see the strawberry, but still proceeded to serve the plate. Health violation right there. Not coming back ever again.
first visit since the pandemic and it wasn't what I use to enjoy. food was cold and the servicer was unfamiliar morning menu as she stated.
will return for buffet.
GOOD FOOD, GOOD VIEW. BEST BACON WRAPPED SCRIMP I HAVE EVER HAD.
I EAT THERE OFTEN.
Loved my server Loren D!!!! She was amazing!! Definitely coming back!!
Excellent service from entry to exit. Our waitress was so busy but took care of my table very well. The food was fresh and great portions were served ! I can’t wait to go back.
The food and drinks are Amazing!! The view is Spectacular!!!
Good food and nice resto
Staff was not attentive in bar area. Very slow service and did not check on our table if we needed anything after we got our drinks and food.
An Authentic Dining Experience ! Amazing Views, Great Service! Food was outstanding. We ate Everything on Our Plates !! Compliments to The Chef !!!
Love the view, which made it so relaxing. Had a great time with friends and were able to hang out for a long time, there was no pressure to leave, also we were there in their off peak time so it was great. Their service was great.
enjoyed the view by the sea, service was exceptional
The food is delicious...service is great the view is spectacular
We ate in the Bar at a table of five. We enjoyed our time because we did not feel rushed. We had our usual Ignited Fajitas and Caesar salad.
We are happy to hear about your experience! We appreciate you taking the time to share. - Xperience Restaurant Group
Disappointed in the lack of management waited 30 min over my reservation time, the bathroom was what help me get the courage to get out and leave before I even got seated. there is a lack of management and a lack of bathroom sanitary standards BUT the food looked and smelled amazing my respects to the the chefs that keep that place open
Our server was amazing very attentive and sweet and helpful
Thank you for your review and we appreciate you taking the time to share! – Xperience Restaurant Group
The regular brunch menu has been modified for COVID safety, no buffet lines, but they made up for it with the yummy Churro Pancakes!
Reservation was at 8:30 was not seated until 9:20
We had a reservation via opentable and was not honored. We waited for 45 minutes. Food was really bad. No more visit to this place.
Food was good, service was great, the atmosphere was nice and they were very Covid safe. I would highly recommend!
We love being able to make a reservation and have such a beautiful view for a family night out for dinner. Always great service, overflowing chips and salsa, and bomb food.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know what you think about our food and your experience! – El Torito Team
I love El Torito’s, especially their Chicken Taco Salad. Our dinner service was a little slow and loud tonight, due to a large family with little kids celebrating a birthday. But the food was excellent as usual.
The hostess had a hard time finding the reservation by name as they didn't register the Confirmation # given by Open Table. (Even when showing email) however, they had our table ready with the accomodations asked for on web site.
My reservation was not recognize/accepted by EL Torito. The attendant claim I did not have a reservation and had to convinced her by showing my confirmation. Even after all that they made us wait for a table. I was not the only one. Other people had similar problem. I don't think they were ready for the Cinco de Mayo event.
Food was listed as fajita chicken salad but onions and pepper were not sautéed. Chicken was grilled but cold. I am guessing tableside cooking has been nixed but no explanation given. Used to be my favorite item on their menu.
Excellent service, crew, place, view by the window.
The service was fantastic, but the restaurant was too loud. If they'd lower the music, people wouldn't have to speak so loudly to be heard. The food was tasty and there was a wide variety of options.
Bertie was upbeat and a good server. He did wear multiple hats and was very busy.
For a milestone birthday lunch this was our worst experience.
