“One of the best patios”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We ate here with family and friends. The patio was fantastic. It was a little before dusk when we arrived at 5:15 pm and as the night progressed, they turned on the fire pits and heaters. With the lights, flowers and beautiful grounds, it was great.
The food was very good as well. I had the vegetarian dish of poblano peppers, quinoa and vegetables in a red pepper sauce that was a perfect mix of favors. The beet salad was ok but another member of our party had the tomatoes and handmade cheese salad which was very good.
The service was spot on. Would return again.

“El Choro Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We visit El Choro frequently and always take out family for my Wife's birthday.
Food is outstanding and outside seating atmosphere is very peaceful and serene. We would recommend this to anyone for the fantastic service alone.

“Great food and outdoor patio very close to Montelucia Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

They said this place was rated one of the top 100 outdoor patio restaurants in the country and I believe it. They have the equipment to either add warmth or cool things down as needed. Valet parking, outstanding food, service, and atmosphere. I saw at least two groups of 12-15 people who were having a great time with enough privacy to talk and laugh without disturbing others. I will definitely go back next time we're in town.

“Cinnamon bun delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

A balmy dessert night, seated outside in a beautifully lit courtyard, $30 Arizona food week menu to die for and hot cinnamon buns! This is a recipe for an excellent evening with good friends
Service was sharp, attentive, wine savvy
Arizona food week menu offered good choices - chicken dish was moist full of flavours and very tasty
This is a gem of a place within paradise valley
Please change nothing!!!
Love it!
Will definitely return to sample to a la carte menu and yes.... The warm cinnamon buns!
