El Torito - Sherman Oaks
It was a buffet with a lot of choices. The servers behind the plexiglass served up large portions even when asked for a smaller one. The server at the table looking after drinks kept the mimosas and napkins coming. Overall for the price it was a good selection of yummy foods and excellent service. Would return and recommend to family and friends.
Service was above
They are understaffed.
Crazy crowded and very loud. Food was very good. Server was good considering how crowded it was. This was due to the very popular buffet I'd assume.
It might be we just went on a busy but we only got one drink and had to go up to front to get our check we felt a bit at a los since we got the norm less mimosas and never got refills
Wonderful service, delicious food! Great but gray Lin h for my Mom. Staff provided exceptional & friendly service. Excellent value!!!
Amazing as always. Super friendly staff.
Great food and great service. Table side guacamole is fabulous!
Samantha, our server was such a great help and everything was good. The food and the time we spent with our kids ended up great.
Too busy bc of free taco night. Service was bad, probably bc too many patrons and not enough staff.
great food and attentive service, staff very friendly
Food is so-so. Nothing special. Nothing that isn't loaded with fat or grease! If. you eat around the fat and grease, there's nothing but lettuce and fruit.
Our server was MAGNIFICENT! She could really have her own place one day. She was attentive, anticipated our needs, cleared the table quickly - always was on top of the coffee - everything. She made a difference, for sure.
Lots of kids and birthday parties and crowd noise, but that I already knew.
They REALLY have made changes with the buffet and serve you everything. The public doesn't touch anything at al except their own plate. It was so very worth the lack of great food to be "out" and know we were safe.
Good Mexican food, staff are friendly in fun atmosphere!
Good food and even greater service!
Very noisy even though the restaurant was not crowded.
I set a reservation with the specific note attached that it was my wife's birthday. But... no birthday song or anything. :/
quick service, food was yummy and the pineapple coconut margarita was a little too sweet.
Menudo was delicious! Quick service
The guacamole was made fresh at the table. Very good food. Drinks were... drinks. Service was great.
Our server was courteous, attentive, and quick. Our meals were excellent.
Since Covid every time we have been there the food is getting worse. The carne esada couldn’t even be cut with the knife. That’s how bad and chewy it was. It was the worse quality meat I have ever had in my life. My teeth couldn’t chew the beef. It was like a rubber. My partner beef was the same. My sister’s beef fajita was complete over cooked so she barely ate it. Her spicy margarita was waterie with no sweetness. The restaurant was overly crowded and not enough people to attend to guests.
We never to here because the parking is bad.
I love the food
The best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to!
Our sever was excellent! The value for Saturday brunch was really good. I will say the chilaquiles needed more seasoning. However, the rest of the food was good.
The service was great. We enjoyed their chips and salsa.
Enjoyed getting out at a casual dinner with good food and drinks
good food and salsa same as every el torito restaurant
Our server may have been over worked but it took so long for us to even order then another long time for us to get our food. Tables around us that sat after us were served ahead and our server said it was because they had a different server and it was the order the kitchen made it. Also the bathrooms and just overall cleanliness was pretty rough- coming out of a pandemic we were hoping for a better experience. It was great for our kids and they had tons of options on the menu and I felt pretty spread out inside.
We went to El Torito to make use of a breakfast promo. Our food was delicious and our server was courteous and fairly attentive.
Server was awful. I ordered the all you can eat fish tacos. They never brought any more after the first three tacos were delivered. Waited 30 minutes. Nope nothing. Kept saying it’s coming in 10 minutes….
Fun casual dining
My friends and I had a great time dining at El Torito! One friend had dietary restrictions and the staff was very accommodating. Everything was fresh, delicious and attractively plated. Convenient parking was a plus!
Helpful and cordial personnel clean place a day and night from the last time I was there.
Antonio was an amazing server. Definitely asking for him when returning.
The frozen fruit Margaritas were great as always. Food was ok, nicely plated but not remarkable. Portions seem to be shrinking a bit. The standout was Jessica, our friendly and attentive server. She guided us to the best choices, got both orders perfect, forgot nothing, checked in without being intrusive and made it a very pleasant dinner.
Parking is horrible, service not good.
It was not a very well organized Mother's Day Brunch. It was VERY crowded inside without any social distancing in a tiny space. The food was fine was we got it, but I don't think I would return for a special occasion again, at least not in this current pandemic climate.
It took almost 45 minutes to get our food and it wasn't busy when we got there! The food was so salty, we barely finished out meal! Our waiter didn't tend to our table much! We were pretty much forgotten about! Terrible service and food!
The food and drinks were excellent.
Our waiter was excellent.
I would definitely recommend my family and friends to dine there.
I’m looking forward to my next visit myself.
Favorite location of one my favorite restaurants no complaints!!!!
