We had our Christmas dinner in their outside seating area. The weather was mild and there were a lot of heaters and lights so we could enjoy the beautiful view of Camelback Mountain. They had a set menu...salmon, beef tenderloin and turkey. There were four of us and we each had something different (except two of us had the turkey).... More

We went in search of reservations for Christmas Dinner this morning and after an extended search on line and by phone the staff at El Chorro returned my call. Our plans changed and we arrived early for our reservations. They were able to accommodate us. We were delighted with our choices from their holiday menu and had the pleasure of... More

I have always enjoyed and loved the atmosphere because the food is great but there is a consistency to a well done and serviced restaurant. Have recommended to many when they visit the area and no disapoinments ever.

Have had a the pleasure of dining at El Chorro several times, most recently in December 2014. Consistently excellent food; traditional, but perfectly executed. The sticky buns are so good they are wrong! The beef stroganoff is outstanding. Not used to seeing this one the menu and it's become a favorite. Both my wife and I had it at our... More

I will disclose up front that I am a Midwestern tourist who is easily impressed by outdoor dining in November. That said, this was a great experience. Fabulous service. Loved the airy feel, both inside and out. Mountainous backdrop was beautiful. The food was excellent. Prices were about what I expected. Brunch is certainly not as expensive as dinner. Valet...

This was our first time eating here. Very nice atmosphere. My wife and father liked the food they had, chicken and a cobb salad, however my mother and I had pork chops and they came out undercooked with a pink color, and barely warm to the touch. We sent them back for additional cooking and then they came out tough... More

We enjoyed our meal outside; they have a great patio area with heaters. It was very comfortable. We all had something different to eat and all were pleased. The service was good - it was busy but we were attended to properly.

What a lovely patio; stunning views of Camelback Mountain, and so comfortable to enjoy outdoors! We went for happy hour and enjoyed a variety of appetizers...and cocktails. Service was prompt, and the food and beverages very good. We will return!

Interesting menu with excellent execution. We sat on the wonderful patio and were toasty warm even on a cool night with the natural fireplaces and overhead heaters. Service was friendly and professional. El Chorro has been here for many years but continues to be a very enjoyable experience.
