Always a good place to have my steak fix thats close to where I live
Unfortunately there was an over an hour wait after we ordered to get our dinner. The food came out cold and the restaurant indoors was so noisy we could not even hear ourselves talk. It was a disappointing dining experience.
Birthday great food and drinks.
Love this place!
Always delicious and nice service
Easy reservations made- had a table when we arrived. Good food and service. Nice neighborhood restaurant.
Appetizers were solid and they have a lot of good beers on tap. The entrees were very bland though, which kind of dampened the experience. Cool place to sit outside and have drinks and apps, but I wouldn’t go back for a meal.
Food is awesome And ambiance is good, love this place.
Great food in a casual setting. They have a good selection of drinks also.
It was yummy & we had awesome service
It’s always delicious and fun!
Always delicious food, friendly staff and wonderful service.
I liked dinning in the patio, very relaxing and looks great now.
So good! Great service! love the patio please keep it and every single time the meal is perfect
Great to be back at the Eldo for inside dining!! Excellent service as always from Ashlee P.
I really enjoy the tasty food here and the consistency is excellent! Outdoor seating has a good ambience and the service is always awesome, love the friendly pleasant people that work here!
I have been going to the El Dorado for 40 years, yup 3 owners. This is our neighborhood spot. I like the variety of food they offer. We had the lamb shank and this time it was way too salty. Our server was great and the busboy, I think his name was Patrick was very kind. We will return.
The service was excellent it's near our neighborhood and it was easy to do open table we enjoyed our food very much and like I said the atmosphere was nice since they redid it
The best ribeye steak in Long Beach? Absolutely! It might be one of the best steaks I have ever had. At 20 ounces it is perfect to share for dinner, all we did was add an extra side of vegetables and we had plenty for both of us. I’ll do has an amazing wine list and especially a beer list. All of the servers are fabulous, Kelly was our server at theBar at a hug at a high top,And it was perfect
Very nice Thursday night dinner We made our reservation with Open Table which makes it so much nicer than having to wait for a table!
Highly recommend the Eldo!
Ribeye was exactly how I ordered and the Pretzel was very good and the dipping sauces where good as well
80th birthday the food was saltier than I remember on this past visit -
My mom had fish in chips which had great portion size and looked lovely , but very salty.
We had the stuffed pork chop and the veggies had great flavor again very salty. This has not been the case in our previous experience so I didn’t say anything to the server because we celebrating. The butter cake is worth a visit alone.
I will go back and continue to recommend. The women’s bathroom needs attention. The toilets don’t flush right so when the next person come in to either stall, there is a present for them to flush.
Otherwise, it is wonderful to have a neighborhood gem like Eldo.
I would have rated the ambience with 5 stars if the restaurant was as it was prior to COVID-19. Having the restaurant to 1/2 or 1/4 capacity isn't quite the same as with a lively crowd.
Waited 15 minutes for a server to acknowledge us to place our beverage order. 10 minutes later after the server took our food order she told us the kitchen was backed up and would be a 45 minute wait. It would have been more acceptable if they had additional bartenders so we didn't have to wait 20 minutes between drinks.
We always enjoy eating at the Eldo. I wish they had vegan items other than the fried zucchini. The pot pies used to be good but now they taste frozen. The fish and chips and the ribeye are the best things on the menu. Excellent selection of beers.
I enjoyed my time here.. The dishes where large. The party. Of seven had a great time. I had a great time. An excellent place for a get together.
Their filet is amazing! Ambiance is lively, but still appropriate for families. Also recommend a large pretzel to share and their wine selection isn't too shabby either!
Great to be out & about! Nice dinner on the covered patio - server was great & FOOD was wonderful! Mac & cheese great & Lamb burgers are fab! Cocktails & beer plentiful and strong! Lovely and welcoming - good COVID protocol - felt safe! Happy with choice
Good was good, the aged ribeye was great. Went for a date night, so the noise level was a bit much, as we were seated next to a family with small children. Definitely not a place I would consider a date night spot, as it has more of a upgraded sports bar feel.
The menu is great, food is great, service is great.
Food was great, food just came out a little slower than expected.
Appetizer came out frozen.
Something hard found in entree
Drinks took forever
Service was slow
Taste of food was mediocre
Table was meant for 4 people. There was 5 in our party. Very cramped. It was a Friday night and only one bartender. We had to wait quite a while for our drinks. However the food was fantastic. Our server very apologetic. We will try it again.
Always have a great time here. Food is delicious. Service is amazing. The Eldo never disappoints!
I always enjoy going to the Eldo. They are most accommodating. I had a reservation for outside and it was cold and windy. My friends arrived before I did and asked if we can relocate in the bar. They were happy to help us out and allowed us to relocate inside to enjoy our dinner. It was our friend’s first visit there and they were very happy with the food and service. Me too!
As always, we love the Eldo! They treat us like family...love our neighborhood restaurant and all the yummy food and drink they provide. Everyone who works there is happy, wonderful to our 4 kids and the food is consistently good! Pretzel, French dip, eldo burger, wings, shrimp, fries....ice cream Sammy!!!! All delicious!
Really love this place....such a locals vibe, really interesting menu and excellent execution. Incredibly friendly staff...relaxed, but professional, engaging, caring and know their job. This place is one of those places you can always count on.
They were accommodating for last min changes, staff was very nice.
The Eldo is open for dining again! But it's going to take a while yet before their service is back up to ... acceptable. Plan your visit accordingly...long waits for the attention of the severs, and even longer waits for food from the kitchen.
Being that they are now open inside it was very crowded. Even with a reservation, it took about 20 minutes to get seated on the patio.
We thought the food was way later than it usually arrives. It took over an hour after we ordered our sandwiches (nothing too complicated) for them to arrive. We kept explaining to our granddaughter that this was unusual and thought they must not had enough wait staff.
Great food!! It was the first weekend with indoor dining and based on the time it took to get our food, I think they were busier then anticipated. Also, social distancing is not 6ft ... or 3ft. Literally had the person’s chair behind me hit mine. That’s how close we were.
