The El Paseo has fantastic atmosphere...the restaurant is open to the sky with moveable canvas shades. There are trees inside with "twinkle lights" in the 2 story room. The adjacent bar has a lower ceiling with big exposed beams and a big fireplace at one end with comfortable seating. The whole scene oozes charm.
Unfortunately the food has always been mediocre. So why go??? Soak in the atmosphere, order chips and guacamole made at your table, order a very good Margarita, or the fantastic Caipirinha and relax.
Don't eat there. Move on after cocktails. The staff is very nice. It is not crowded. Sit by the fireplace or under a heater by your table. Enjoy.
