“Wonderful food and cheerful service”
Reviewed November 14, 2007

Excellent menu choices, helpful servers, and very good food. The parking lot is always so full, we were lucky to get in. This is a place I would definitely go back to...and take my office for lunch.

“Do Not Eat Here”
Reviewed August 24, 2006

While visiting the delightful city of Olympia, we went to El Sarape for dinner. Uck! The food was terrible and the service was even worse. I thought the manager would want constructive feedback, but when I talked to him, he said, "I don't have time for people like you." I was flabbergasted! Based on this experience, I will never patronize an El Sarape restaurant again. (This guy owns all 5 in the Olympia/Tumwater/Lacey/Shelton area.)
