Best restaurant I've been to in a very long time! Food was amazing. Waiter was on point. Even the owner stopped by to ask us how it was! My new favorite place.
Excellent service, delicious food, beautiful atmosphere
Great atmosphere, service, food, drinks and ambience. We are local folks who love Mexican / Peruvian cuisine and El Serrano's delivers great food and surroundings.
Our scheduled reservation for out side seating was not met. We were given to choice to sit inside or wait 30 minutes for an outside table. I think they over booked the outside seating.
Micah our server was outstanding! Fun, efficient, friendly…made our bday celebration perfect!
Both of our dinners was dry we were not impressed at all. We had Mexican food at Toco bells that was as good.
I have dined at El Serrano on many occasions. This was the first post-pandemic. My guest and I ordered off the Peruvian part of the menu and were very pleased with the preparation and presentation. Dessert at El Serrano is alway a treat and this was bio exception. Our server Martin was appropriately attentive.
Reservation was confirmed upon arrival and we were seated immediately. Wait staff approached us once seated and asked for our drink order. Drinks arrived quickly and we ordered our dinners. Food arrived quicker than I anticipated and all the meals were delicious. We love El Serrano as it is always consistent with great food, atmosphere and service.
Excellent night! Can’t wait to go back and sit on the patio
Monday night and the placed was full like it's a Saturday night. Wait staff very helpful and understanding as 2 of our seniors party were using walkers with some difficulty. No wheel chair available but it turns out our dining guest didn't want to use one anyway.
Margaritas were fresh and zesty just like you would expect a South American drink to be.
There was a wait from the time of reservation. The kitchen was backed up and it took over an hour to get the main course. My husband liked his chicken and rice dish. I thought chicken in the chicken fajita was dry and I did not care for the taste of the sangria I ordered. The server was pleasant and I don’t blame him for the excessive wait. It was over crowded and they did not seem prepared to accommodate the crowd in a timely fashion.
Always great food, drinks and atmosphere! The fried ice cream is the best!
Our service was extremely slow!! We waited 45 minutes for an appetizer and an hour and a half for our dinner. Our waiter did not come back to offer more water and we asked multiple times, Overall a very disappointing experience tonight!!
The manager, Melanie, went out of her way to help us have a very enjoyable evening. Service and food both outstanding and the atmosphere and decor are great.
Great greeting. Waiter was slow returning to table so we got full price drinks instead of happy hour price. Rice was under cooked. We have been here before covid when food and service were a five star. It was one our favorites.
Great service, great food, great time with family.
Quality of is superb and consistent. Love the atmosphere and menu.
The food has the same great quality and staff is friendly.
Always delicious and enjoyable to eat here. We sat outside (in the courtyard) and it was wonderful.
Very average food. For the price of each dish, our party expected more. We also waited over 45 minutes for entrees. Love the building - great atmosphere. We couldn’t find a parking spot as it was packed! Most likely will not return.
They were running a little behind on reservations but that was fine. The food was delicious as always!
Love the food, but your frozen margarita machine is still broken after many months. You make the best ones in the area, please get it fixed ASAP. We’ve gone a few times hoping it was fixed, still not.
meals were wrong after waiting 40 minutes for our food.
First time here. Best raspberry margarita I have ever had. Kudos to the bartender. Everyone’s food was absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to come again. We are from York. Looking forward to trying your location there
Loved Peruvian food choices. Kitchen service slow though. waited over 1 hour.
Had the salmon Serrano, delishes! The Pomegranate Margaritas were very refreshing and the staff was courteous and efficient.
Every time we come into El Serranos we are met with with cheerful faces and wonderful service and the best food in town!
We always come back whenever we have something to celebrate.
El Serrano has been a go to for 30 years although it has been a couple of them since I was last here and it did not disappoint!
I had the shrimp fajitas and my friend had the El Rancho Combo.
Both were delicious.
My only complaint was the rice with my fajita was a bit overcooked and dry.
I would recommend that anyone looking for a good Latin American meal to go here.
They ran out of shredded beef for chimichsnga
Food was delicious, and the service
was quite good.
Great place with tasty food. Has an inner court with a very nice setup. I would recommend this place.
We made a reservation to sit in the courtyard for dinner. Upon arrival, Hostess told us we would have to wait upwards of 30 minutes if we wanted to eat outside but we could be seated quicker if we decided to eat inside. I explained that I made a reservation to eat outside for a specific reason and that we wanted to eat outside and wondered why it would be 30 minutes. As it turns out, it was only about a 10-minute wait to sit outside. We had a lovely waitress who seemed attentive at first but then it took a very, very long time to get our food. We ordered appetizers and drinks as soon as we sat down. The drinks arrived quickly but the appetizers took about 35 minutes. We ordered food and waited at least another 40 minutes. The waitress did explain that the kitchen was short-staffed and apologized. Overall, the food was fine and the ambiance was pretty as usual but the long wait for food with my two young children made the experience mediocre.
Excellent Service and Food!
As always..Fabulous food as well as service and you can’t miss anything you desire here..
Good as usual. The service was a little slow but not that bad. Overall good experience.
The food was excellent! We will definitely return to this restaurant.
Six of us sat outside in the courtyard. Our waiter was terrific, food and drinks were great! Was our first outing together since Covid shutdown, so we enjoyed ourselves immensely!
We had a lovely Birthday dinner here. Over all this is one of our favorite restaurants to go too.
Our food was cold and took a long time to get it . Our serve was very nice.
