Great dishes. Unique flavor pairings. Appealing presentation. Great atmosphere with indoor and ourdoor options. Kid menu looks appealing but flavors maybe too sophisticated for some young palettes.

The best part of this place is sitting outside under the trees. The menu may be creative, but it's quite limited. The food looks prettier than it tastes.

I ordered steak lettuce wraps which came with two small chunks of steak on top. The big lettuce leaves were fibrous and not very fresh, and the stuff inside was too dry; it needed some kind of sauce. It was awkward to eat because of the presentation.

The salads that came with the meals were pretty but again they were awkward to eat because they were wrapped in cucumber which was more visual than edible.

There were no non-dairy dessert choices--everything was heavy creamy desserts.

I feel like the place has style but that it sacrifices taste. The food we had was not satisfying.

Great food, although a little on the expensive side as it wasn't that great. Very attentive service, although they need to work on this as one woman was wandering about making sure everyone was ok while the waiting staff three knives, water, plates and cocktails at people. Our waiter was leaning over our food plates to collect empty glasses, dropped a knife on my partners lap and threw water over a lady on the table next to us. A little clumsy... but he meant well - a nice bloke... entertaining...

I wrote a review titled "Terrible Customer Service" a few days ago. The restaurant I was referring to was Cafe Diablo, not El Diablo...

Cafe Diablo is THE place for dinner in Torrey. We ate there all 3 nights of our stay..as did many others. We saw the same diners each night. Quite the international crowd too. The rattlesnake cakes were surprisingly good. We also had the trout, tuna, flank steak and pork. All yummy. The service was attentive and very friendly. Sit outside and enjoy the awesome views.
