El Paseo was a wonderful experience. We were a group of 9 and sampled a variety of starters, meals and desserts and EVERYTHING was amazing. My favorite was the pork chop. Great restaurant and cool atmosphere.

I love the outdoor patio. It's my favorite place to sit and eat, if it's not too cold and wet out. Food-wise, they've delivered 9 times out of 10. The service can be a bit snooty at times but it all makes for the $$$...More

I've been to El Paseo several times and each visit was excellent. The atmosphere has a mystery and romance -- the space is made up of a group of smaller interconnected rooms that imbues a feeling of 16th Century Spain -- and the tables are...More
