I've been coming here for the last couple of years. I won a gift certificate and went to use it and been going t least once a month if not more. Enrique, the chef is amazing! This isn't your rice and beans kinda Mexican place. I've tried it all and love everything I've had. Shrimp cocktail, ceviche, mole sauces, chicken... More

On 8/1/2012 I ate breakfast at the "El Patio Bar and Grill" in El Monte, CA. I've eaten there many times before. It really is the best place to eat in El Monte as far as I'm concerned. The EM/SEM Chamber of Commerce has their breakfasts here once a month and that is because of two reasons --- food and... More

Went to the Beer tasting. The beer was paired with food and went really well together. It really blow my mind of how good it was. I did not expected the food to blend so well with the beer the chef there has some serous talent.

My wife & I have been visiting El Patio for almost a year; what bring us back over and over is their fusion cuisine, this is a unique Mexican Restaurant this is not a typical rice and beans, this is the place that will go out of their way to cater to you, the chef’s are always willing to prepare...

I met my buddy there for a 5pm get-together. We don't see each other often so we were there until closing. There were folks watching MNF on the big-screens at the bar inside, and I asked for outside seating. They have a real nice little patio out there, fully enclosed and well ventilated. It's a little noisy with Ramona Blvd... More

My g/f and I have been going to El Patio for a couple years now and Chef Enrique always comes through with a fresh innovative spin to traditional food. My g/f does not like fish, but she only eats fish at El Patio, especially the garlic sole fillet. Also the steak is fresh, tender and cooked to perfection! Even the... More

As was mentioned, although the name makes you think this is your typical Mexican restaurant, it is far, far from that. The Chef is doing his best to put a "Euro" spin on traditional Mexican dishes, using the freshest ingredients and an inspired, "out of the box" way of preparing the items on the menu. Worth mentioning is the Ground... More

Fresh, interesting choices. This isn't a Mexican restaurant, even though it does have some Mexican items on the menu. The food is fresh and the chef is innovative with the choices. His soups are wonderful. The patio is very pleasant, a lovely place for an interesting meal.
