    Food was really good but our waiter was pretty terrible. He was running around like crazy but never seemed to keep up with the few tables he had. Luckily we had brought a pocket chess game to keep ourselves occupied during the HUGE waits to order, to get dessert, to get the check, to pay the check, etc. Food was great except the mud pie, which came out super-frozen. Really hard to eat.

    Quality of food has dropped considerably here over the years. Workers are nearby our table and the ambiance is not what you'd expect. The bathrooms are very dirty and probably a health hazard if your ask me. Server was slow and we had to ask for plates and silverware that basically I'll timed. Not coming back here.

    I made reservations for a party of 14 people to celebrate my fathers Birthday. Everything went amazing we got sat down right away. Our serve le is a polite gentleman and he was able to attend our party and I ordered the spinach enchilada and the spinach is so crunchy and fresh, the margarita trio was delicious. Celebrating birthday and this location made it special for us. I'm looking forward returning at this location!

    The service is fast. Staff are friendly Food is very good. We use to come here even Covid year. Then we want some ambiance and eat at El Torito in Marina Del Ray Beach. Woodland Hills is closer to us so we went back and eat. To our surprise the way they cook thier food is better and they serve faster. Awesome! Keep it up!

    Special Thanksgiving buffet didn't disappoint. Both traditional holiday options and Mexican foods like Birria, Chile Colorado, tacos, chicken tamale, cheese enchilada, etc. All of it was very good. Nice to mix both cuisines. Even though it was drinks only, service was tremendous.

    The salad seems to be soggy as if it isn’t being stored properly. The steak in the fajitas was over cooked and dry. Chicken also over cooked and dry. Shrimp good! Retired beans and rice both cold. Sodas flat. Women’s restroom is atrocious. Serious safety hazards and filthy. Toilet seat lose and falling off. Parts of flooring uneven. Dirty and smells terrible.

    One and done. Service was slow and food just wasn’t good. The tortilla chips had a very off taste like old grease and sat out for ever. We almost left before ordering entrees they were so bad accompanying salsa was below average and had the heat of Minnesota. Entrees we’re good. Fajitas duo the chicken was good. Steak not good full of gristle that you couldn’t chew through. Had a better steak in the Army. Enchiladas not good and not sauces and interesting take on things. Never seen cabbage in a enchilada and soo many onions was nearly inedible. Definitely won’t be back

    Waitress was amazing. The rest of the experience, not so much. Food was not very tasty. The kitchen had awful timing on our food. Got my main coarse before the appetizers. Oh, let’s not forget the lack of napkins and utensils. Haven’t been there in about 30 years and it will be another 30 before I go back. Too many other places that have better food and better service. Oh, we had to clear our own table a few times. Before dessert we did a full clear. DONT GO HERE!

    We arrived 15 min early and the restaurant was empty. There were two handicapped people and one minor in our party of four. I asked the manager for a table vs. booth. He was annoyed and attempted to sit us right next to the bar (with a minor) at two small cocktail bar tables put together. Near by there was five empty four and five top tables so I told the hostess we wanted one of the tables not in the bar. She stormed off taking our utensils with her. I flagged down the manager asking for utensils and he said it was our fault we didn’t have any because we didn’t want the table we were being sat at. The waiter came over and gave us utensils. Outside the manager the table service was amazing. There were only four people working the buffet and at 10am the food was already cold and hard. For the free bottomless mimosa’s we were given a glass of champagne filled all the way to the top and one separate cup of Orange juice to share amongst the three adults. We spent $170 with tip and were very disappointed.

    We had been intentionally overcharged by our waitress at the Northridge location the weekend prior to our visit to Woodland Hills— she added a $15 tip to our card, even though we gave her a cash tip. Jose, the district manager for this area said he would comp our meal if we gave them a second chance. We didn’t feel comfortable at Northridge so he asked us to come to Sunday brunch in Woodland Hills— a bit of a drive for us, but we agreed to give El Torito a second chance. That was a mistake. We arrived and no one at the Woodland Hills location had heard about this agreement—Jose hadn’t mentioned anything to them. The manager handled it very well though, he offered us a 25% discount. This was far from what the district manager had promised, but better than driving 35 minutes for nothing. I’m incredibly disappointed at the upper level management in El Torito— namely the district manager, Jose. How does someone get to that level in a restaurant chain with such little common sense or customer service skills? You have guests who were literally robbed by your employee and then you appease them with a false promise and zero follow-through?! The brunch was good, but still cost me $60 I didn’t anticipate spending. The Woodland Hills location was very good overall and our server, Pedro, was amazing!!!
