Nicely decorated but music plays too loud. Food was fine and they could accommodate a group of 10. High chairs not operable so had to hold the baby. Men's bathroom had no changing station so had to go outside. Food was good and so was service.

El Puerto's was packed on a recent Saturday evening but still gave excellent service and great food. The staff found us seating after a brief wait and our orders was taken very quickly. The food did not take long to get to our table and was very good.

One Thursday in September, my friend and I went to lunch at El Puerto, as we often did. On this occasion, as I was eating, I bit into metal. I figured it was some foil, and wasn't too concerned. However, it turned out to be a wire coil, probably from a pot scrubber. I told the host about it and... More

Beautiful surroundings- beautiful wall paintings, great food- everything we have tried, efficient and handsome young servers! What more does one need? Fair price? They have that, too! We have been there many times.
