My sister-in-law recommended this fine food establishment. By the name and location of the restaurant, we expected a run-of-the-mill Mexican food experience. Wow, we were floored with the great choice of Mexican themed food dishes. We had a group of nine people, each ordered a different dish that stemmed from Mexico's diverse regions, all were fantastic! All of the ingredients... More

When looking for a good restaurant in El Monte last night, my wife and I were surprised by how few of the local restaurants have been reviewed in TripAdvisor. With 9 reviews, El Patio had more that most, so we decided to give it a try. We will definitely be back! The interior is thoughtfully decorated and our waiter was... 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.

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
