El Barzon Ratings and Reviews
Loved the authentic Italian and authentic Mexican food! So many delicious choices. Food was served hot and at a perfect pace for our corporate holiday dinner. He halibut was a hit with 4 of our guests and the veal chop was huge and tasty. I would recommend El Barzon for any event lunch or dinner.
My mom & I were seated right away & had our orders placed promptly. I ordered the pasta trio and she ordered the lemon chicken dish. We waited well over 45 minutes before our meal arrived. The restaurant became full after our order was placed. I’m not sure if our waitress forgot to enter it in, as tables seated after us received their meals before us. Frustrating but what can we do? We both ask for boxes, which she brought back promptly but minus our bill. We waited another 10-15 minutes and only received after we flagged another server down. I kept looking around for her but she never seemed to be available. The food was tasty but our overall experience was definitely soured by the poor service.
We've been to El Barzon several times now. Each dining experience has been fabulous. The service from the staff is top notch. The menu and specials are so interesting and well prepared. Great food at a reasonable price; what's not to like? We recommend El Barzon to all our friends!
The service was perfect. We had been to this restAurant many years ago and were pleasantly surprised by the newly added addition which made our dining experience leaving us likx s were on a vacation. An added bonus was the quality of the food. Fun and interesting menu. We were sorry we were so full that dessert was not an option. We will be back.
We had a great meal here on the patio, choosing the Mexican side of the menu. The patio is such a great place to have a meal and enjoy the beautiful space. Our waiter, Gustavo, was excellent and we enjoyed talking to him about Mexico City. The food was spot on and the service was excellent. Overall, we can't wait to go back.
I officially have a new favorite restaurant! El Barzon was better than I could have imagined! Took my fiancé for his birthday, and while they did not do anything special for the celebration---the food was outstanding and ambiance was top-notch! We LOVED the patio and we will be considering it for our rehearsal dinner. The asiago gnocchi with chorizo sauce was to die for, we just wish it wasn't a special and it could be on the menu all the time!! We will most certainty be back in the near future!
The hostess was incredibly rude. She avoided the hostess stand as people waited. We had reservations and it took 10 minutes just to find someone and let them know we were there. She very rudely said it would be a couple minutes which turned into a half an hour. When confronted about the wait she stated "I told you we're working on it". Finally we just seated ourselves. Many patrons left because there was no one to seat them. They had at least 20 tables that were not bused and the manager could have cared less about any of it. Our waiter was terrific and the food was very good. However I will not be returning due to the horrible, incredibly rude hostess, and lack of management. You should not treat paying customers that way.
Food was pretty good, but service was abysmal. It took over 15 minutes after being seated to be acknowledged, another 20 minutes to receive our initial drink order, and 30 minutes after we finished our appetizers before our main course arrived. MANY other guests were also overheard complaining about the service and food time, with one patron even angrily yelling at a manager near our table. We will not be back.
