Excellent dining experience at El Torito Grill on Taco Tuesday- Great food and service as always!
The steak fajitas were pretty bad. Maybe the chef cut the steak the wrong way, but it was chewy and grisly. Not a very good piece of meat.
Always enjoy our visit to El Torito Grill and were very happy to be able sit inside. They have done a very good job of providing indoor seating complying to mask and social distancing and sanitation requirements. Our only criticism was the service we received. Our waiter was excellent and did everything possible to attend to our table. The problem was he simply had too many tables and people to attend to. We have noticed this problem in other restaurants with both indoor and outdoor seating. In general it makes us feel sorry for the service people who are trying so hard to provide great service against all odds of being able to do so. That being said we will definitely go back many more times and recommend El Torito Grill to others!
The social distancing was fantastic - we were in a long dining area with the next table about 30’ away!
Ate way too many fresh, hot, home-made tortillas - they were so good!
Good service, predictable food. Value in the happy hour menu.
It was a wonderful brunch with excellent service. Food was delicious.
In Orange County, we had the option to dine inside our out; we chose outside since it was such a nice evening. There was a party going on in their parking lot, so there was loud music. Fortunately, we were seated far enough away that our party could carry on a conversation. The food has always been consistently good and they make the best tortillas and smoky salsa of anywhere I've every eaten Mexican food (even in my home state of Texas!).
Great food- love the fresh Made Tortillas
Great food and service!
Soo nice to get together with friends and be able to sit inside.
Made reservation and was not seated for 30 min after our time. Terrible service. Will not come to this location again.
Everyone was so nice and friendly! This has become our date night spot! Thank you!!!
Always great service and food always good. One of our favorite spots to come to for dinner.
Great Restaurant& feels very safe. Kitchen was backed up but that’s normal for a Saturday night and in these circumstances, our waiter was fantastic and did his best to get all our meals out quick and keep us updated. Food was delicious & Overall a great experience! Will come back
Made reservations for 7pm but didn’t get seated till 7:50pm. Service was friendly but slow... Food was just ok and wasn’t very warm. It was room temperature. I know it’s trying times right now but come on....
Great waitress and servers. All attentive.
Friday night dinner was amazing with music. I highly recommend you make reservations to minimize the wait.
Showed up 10 mins before our reservation time. The worker at the check-in counter was very confused and didn’t know how to work the iPad. Took a while before he found my name. He then said I’ll let you know when a table is available. I was quite confused because I had made a reservation. 10-15 mins later I hear my name get called I turn around and see another worker seating another party of 8+; the table was for a party of 6. My party was a total of 6. I then approached the worker and asked him, didn’t you just call my name. At that moment he realized that he seated the wrong party. He then said that we had the same name and they checked in before us. I don’t have a common name which is very strange to me that we “had the same name”. I told him we had a reservation and he said so did they. We continued to wait 30+ mins after our reservation time. We asked to speak to a manager and the manager quickly cleaned and set up a table for us. The work structure of this restaurant is horrible. I would not go back.
I’ve been craving ETG, and I got shut down when I tried to go to the Santa Ana location after shopping at South Coast. Off to Brea, and what a treat! The tortillas were amazing, just like I remembered, but the other great thing was the good was better. I had the best steak quesadilla ever! Service was a little off, e.g., my food took longer than 2 or 3 tables that ordered after me, they served me the wrong food, I was only offered 1 refill of iced tea when I was done with my meal. And the hit on ambience was due to being outside in blistering weather (not the restaurant’s fault), but I will return shortly so I can try to guacamole and have more tortillas! You never should’ve closed the Torrance location that was minutes from my house.
My friend and I dine here for lunch twice a year, as a half-way point between where she lives and where I reside. During the pandemic there was only outdoor dining and there was an area cordoned off in the parking lot with tables placed appropriately. We were the only ones there because we requested a fan in the 90+ degree heat; other guests opted to dine upstairs on the patio without a cooling element. The fresh tortillas and accompanying sauces and butter are always wonderful. We ordered the soft fish tacos, which were awesome. The salmon was encased in a spinach tortilla and filled with a mango salsa; it was paired with black beans and corn cakes (fantastic) ($17.00). We had a "skinny" margarita ($14.00), which was good, but a little pricy. Our server was very attentive and it was a lovely dining experience!
Everything was wonderful From food to service. With one exception, it was Tuesday night and you had a DJ at the lower taco bar area and the volume was just too loud. Other than that it was another delightful evening at El Torito Grill
The new outdoor setup is not worth the money. The food was not what it was, which I understand why. We sat outside under the tent. They only had a 2 fans facing 1/3 of the tables. It was very hot the day we went. Having to go up and down the stairs to get food was not a great experience. They did have some food outside/downstairs.
good was cold and service was slow.
Great service and great food loved the accomodations available during this covid time
service was so good . only concerned about dining service with high temperature .
Not usual Mex.food, But very very good. Margaritas are not bad either.
Love the signature filet mignon tacos ! Server was very attentive.
Great happy hour menu and price. Will come back soon.
Sergio was our waiter, he is awesome!
Great hostess & server ! The manager was very attentive too.
Taco Tuesday! We ordered off the menu - nice selections, appeared to be full regular menu. Sat socially-distanced on the patio outside the bar. Dodger game on the monitors.
Next time try their complementary Tuesday buffet!
We live nearby and usually stop by for happy hour. Great selection of food and bev on the happy hour menu for $6, $7 or $8. Their regular restaurant menu is also delish, as is their Taco Tuesday selection. They offer the standard Mexican dishes, but specialize in more "Southwest" or non-traditional items. The chicken nachos and tacos, are our usual--honestly haven't had anything we didn't like. Champagne Brunch is awesome--but make a reservation. Wait staff is always friendly and attentive. Upstairs patio is open for Cov-19--they just added extra tables and tents in the parking lot and offer margs to go. Patio can get a bit noisy--but still fun.
A lot of outdoor seating choices. Facing the freeway or under a big tent by the parking lot. Good food and booz.
We really enjoyed ourselves dining on the patio. Very safe and enjoyable with this COVID-19 epidemic going on. Our waiter Cesar was excellent!
The food and service were great thank you once again for having us.
We sat in the Patio, was great along with the service and food.
We went to the brunch for my 75th birthday. I could not be happier. The service was great! The food was great! It was a Fiesta!
The service was excellent. The servers were attentive from the beginning till the end. They were accommodating and took the time to open an umbrella to block the sun from hitting my face, though I never asked or complained about it. The food was delicious and in the midst of covid-19, the restaurant followed regulations properly.
Made a reservation for 7:45 and they didn’t tell me closed @ 8 until 8
My daughter’s birthday
The food and drinks were fantastic and the service was even better. Cesar is the best!
