We went here on the recommendation of a local and it did not disappoint. The staff were warm and friendly the drinks were fabulous and the food was some of the best Mexican I have eaten in years. Highly recommend it.

We went here as a group of nine for dinner and latin dancing on a Saturday night. For $30 it is amazing value. Our group had salmon, steak, chicken and seafood platters and we were all pleased with the quality and the price of $30 which includes a soup or salad, coffee/cappuccino, a salsa lesson and dance later. A very full glass of wine was only $5.75. The dancing started out well but it got very busy (no surprise), hot and finally too crowded to dance very much so we left around 12:30. But we had a lot of fun, the waitress was friendly and helpful and we loved the price, especially for Toronto. It isn't five star dining but the food is very good and portions are generous. We will return but get there for some early dancing:)

This place is so horrible, the food and service was terrible. They have club on the other side, it a joke. They have a girl downstairs who take your jacket and try to steal it when you go to get your jacket back. Management is awful and so is the entire place.

Nice service in the restaurant.. food was good... reservation system must improve.. our restaurant reservation could not be found when we arrived (even if I confirmed it 2 times by phone) and we had a booth reserved in the bar and the lady bartender could not find it either.. very frustrating.... she ended giving us reluctantly a small booth where we could not fit our group (reservation made 2 weeks in advanced and reconfirmed a day before). The music was very boring.. the same rhythm for a very long time....the DJ did not know how to mix it well and did not take requests.. never again if I am bringing guests with me. I know that El Rancho has been around for a long time and they are well known in the Latino community but they have a lot to improve.. there are other places.

I went to celebrate my birthday with my family, the food ok but when I had to pay the waiter told my husband his card didn't go thru so I paid with mine, when we arrived home we called visa to clarify if there was something wrong with his card and the CSR said everything was ok with his card but the amount was charged twice on his card and twice on my card, so I called El Rancho because visa told me the manager from the restaurant can call visa to ensure only one charge was the correct one, but instead of receiving an apology from the so called manager Berta, she was offended saying that no one was trying anything funny at El Rancho and I said that I was not accusing them of anything but I needed someone to solve or clarify the situation; so I didn't have a good experience LATINO PLACES you can do better than that in order to ensure excellent customer service, if I was the manager of a place I would immediately apologize to a client no matter what, especially about any confusion about a bill. So for now I have to wait as per visa to ensure only one transaction was charged to my card, again I am not accusing El Rancho.
