Lovely atmosphere, indoor/outdoor bar, friendly bartenders and the happy hour food is really a meal.

Transcending time and space, my tastebuds were transported across an array of 10,000 individual and distinct flavors with each masticated morsel. I chose the Pork Tenderloin served on a luscious lake of banana and Chipotle infused polenta. The heat lit up my buds and allowed the vapores of flavor to gain open, unfettered entry to the pleasure center of my... More

Wow. This was a huge disappointment. El. Chorro had been a special place for us. We decided to spend an evening there for our anniversary two nights ago. Our meals were not even average. I ordered chicken livers, which had been a specialty there. They arrived overly floured, tough, and tasteless. My partner had trout, and that was nothing to... More

Wow! We went with a large group and each one of our dishes was amazing. You have to try the Beef Stroganoff and the Pork Tenderloin. Yummy!!! We all wanted to try dessert, but didn't make it that far. The portions are quite large -- so come hungry!!

I had dinner with my wife and 4 friends, so pleased that there was a quality restaurant open on Christmas Day, but was very underwhelmed. $750 for 6, average foor at best, turkey dinner of my wife was not much better than Mimi's.

Had an delicious pre fixe meal on Christmas out on patio. My wife enjoyed very tasty lobster bisque, melt in mouth tenderloin and apple cobbler. I had the bisque, grilled salmon, and chocolate cake (cobbler was better). El Chorro famous for its sticky bun appetizers and relish tray. Beautiful view of backside of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix.

We came here on the recommendation of a client of mine who also comes to the Phoenix area often. What a great find for happy hour (I'm sure dinner is great, too, but far more expensive). The food was great, and the atmosphere was beautiful (on the patio overlooking Camelback)--we will definitely be back again.

We had a delicious dinner this past Thanksgiving, a meal with all of the trimmings. Originally, we were scheduled to have dinner on the patio, but we had to move inside due to the expected cool weather. The food was very tasty, their special "sticky buns" were a real hit and the service was outstanding. It was a wonderful evening.... More
