Great food and ambiance. Never disappointed...
Food and service very good. There are a wide range of food options for everyone's taste.
My first time stopping in, the staff was friendly and the food was delicious.
Simply the best dining experience I can remember in a long time!!! Service was exceptional, Food was EXCELLENT and atmosphere was fun and energetic! First time but will not be the last! Our new family favorite! Who knew Cactus soup was so fabulous!!!!!
My first visit. It was a beautiful day so we were able to sit outside. Great margaritas, great food, great atmosphere. I will be going back!
The first time I went to El Barzone we sat outside on the patio and it was not a busy holiday. We loved it! This time,we went for Mother’s Day and sat inside which is kinda ho-hum, not so nicely decorated.....sorry El Barzone. We had fish and seafood ravioli and all thought is was just mediocre. However, the guacamole was OUTSTANDING! So, my recommendation is and what I will do in the future is sit outside on the patio and stick to the Mexican cuisine!!
excelent food and service, the only complain is to long of a wait for our food to be serve.
I tasted one of the best things I've ever tasted at El Barzon.
Nice celebration dinner for Cinco de Mayo.
This is the second time I visited El Barzon. Last year was also on Cinco de Mayo :)
The service staff was super friendly and the food was incredible (my mom got the goat stew and i had the chicken with Mole sauce. 100% delicious! as was the tres leches cake!!!)
My only 'complaint' was that the food took quite some time to arrive. It didn't really bother me, as I was enjoying the conversation, but it sort of forces you to keep eating chips. ha!
Cant wait to go back and tell them no to the chips! :)
Hubby and I went out for a date night. Drinks were perfect, loved all the options and the Mexican Mule was different and delicious. Fried calamari for an appetizer, slightly over cooked and too salty in my opinion. Dinner my husband got the goat which was incredible, fell off the bone tender and I got the fish ravioli which left a little to be desired. All in all a fun place to eat and we will be back
A birthday celebration was very special thanks to an unexpected serenade and personalized dessert. Our party of 6 tried several dishes, and we loved everything. Can’t wait to return.
After hearing many good things I was excited to finally try El Barzon. I should've listened to the reviews that called it overrated. It's ok. And just ok. Not worth the price of the entree in the least. I'll gladly pay $20-30 for an entree but can't help but feel ripped off when it's mediocre. The only positives are the guacamole and the staff who refilled our water was very friendly. I wish I would have gone to Taco Bell (gross) instead and saved $80.
They also serve Italian and I noticed the tables around us had ordered pasta. Missed that warning. Live and learn.
Special evening with accommodating staff that made evening more special. Busboy who sings happy birthday in Spanish the highlight (after the food of course!)
We were underwhelmed. The hype in this place was high hit it didn’t live up to it. Was fine but would lot go back. Can go to Mexican village and get as good of food and cheaper.
Another great dinner here. Everything was tasty, our food came up quickly, and the waitstaff were friendly and attentive. Will keep coming back.
Food was fair at best.
We had a great time! The food was amazing and our server was wonderful.
Great service and food. Friendly staff, love this place.
The menu allows for either Mexican or Italian choices and you won't be disappointed either way. Our waiter was Alex and he provided excellent service!
The food was very good. They had a lot of choices and they made an item for us that wasn't on the menu anymore. Everyone was very attentive.
Awesome food choices. Great service!! Great place for a date !
We had dinner there on a Sunday evening. We were early so not crowded - it was getting full when we were leaving. The Bronzino was very good, We also had Chile Releanos, and the El Barzon thin steak with onions and jalapeños. Affordable very good authentic meals...both Italian and Mexican.
Loved this restaurant! Our food was delicious. The pasta is fresh and homemade. The chips and salsa were delicious. Our waiter was so kind and very informative on what we should eat. Will be going back to this place!!!
Had a lovely evening dining at El Barzon and felt like the waitstaff was overly courteous and accommodating. They provided us with a dessert free of charge for my birthday and were very quick to refill our waters, remove any empty plates, and ask if we needed anything additional.
El Barzon has great food and fun cocktails. Great for a special occasion or dinner out with the hubs!
We arrived and there were only a few tables filled. We ordered the calamari, shrimp and scallop appetizer. The scallops were non existent, the shrimp were barely there and the dish was mainly over cooked with very tough calamari. The beer list is non-existent with no craft beers nor any draught beer. The dinners took very long to arrive and the two that came first were cold. The third dinner took ten additional minutes to arrive which was hot like they forgot to make it and only did so when we inquired where it was. Meanwhile, we waited for it to arrive out or courtesy letting our dinners get even cooler. The waiter asked if we would like them "heated up" but could not bear the dinner going into a microwave. The chicken in the dishes was already overcooked. The entrees were so-so, nothing to go out of the way for. Bright side, the dinners came with scalloped potatoes which were the best part of the dinner. Winter brought a complimentary flan desert before bringing the bill. I think he was trying to rehabilitate the tip. I'm not going back. Out of courtesy to the waiter we did not complain on the spot, he did inquire about our meals, but felt uncomfortable complaining. It would have been heaping on as almost every element of the meal was a bad experience.
Love it (again) second visit in less than 3 weeks!
The service, food and cocktails are always excellent. I ordered the Whole grilled Sea Bass . It was delicious. Save room for dessert, the flan is fantastic.
delicious food and the sweet singing waiter was very generous with his time and patient with a group of mischievous ladies! beautiful cocktails! will be back as soon as I can!
The service was exceptional at El Barzon. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer which was amazing! The homemade paparelle pasta with meatballs was a little unique. The red sauce was very different from the usual Italian red sauces...not sure how I felt anout that.
I would definitely go back.
The dining experience was exquisite. I had the grilled sea bass & my spouse had salmon. We had grilled calamari as an appetizer. The meals were mouth-watering & the calamari
was tender & tasty. The wait staff was friendly & professional. The restaurant was elegant but not stuffy.
It is a great place my wife and I along with friends enjoy the evenings at ElBarzon. My favorite the other day was the pasta trio appetizer, (great as an entree as well), whole bronzino, and eggplant soufflé. Spectacular!
Service was just terrible. Food was mediocre. I ordered the lasagna and it had about half a bottle of graded Parmesan dumped on top. The cocktail was good. I would never go back again though because of the service.
Great service, excellent fresh food and hand crafted drinks. Good variety of menu items--both Mexican and Italian fare. It's a neighborhood treasure!
We had a great dining experience. The service was friendly, the atmosphere was casual, yet had the feel of an intimate bistro. The drinks were fun and modern with an extensive wine list, craft beers and inventive cocktails. My friend partook in the house-made mole sauce on the recommendation of our server and it was rich and fabulous! I went Italian and had prosciutto and cheese stuffed baci with a chorizo cream sauce and grilled shrimp and I couldn’t have been more pleased. If we weren’t already so full, I would’ve loved to try any one of their tempting dessert offerings! I can’t wait to go back!
This was our 4th trip to El Barzon and probably our last. The restaurant food, service have been steadily declining but the rates have been increasing.
This trip, the drinks were terrible - we had 3 of them at $11 each.
The food was ok but very very expensive for what was given. The place was so loud that we just could not hear ourselves talk.
Too bad...we were entertaining guests from Washington DC and wanted to give them a good time but we could not.
Nice atmosphere! There are many good items to choose from on the menu!
We ordered fajita. They were not listed on the menu. We saw another table order them, so we asked our water if we could also order them.
I would like to try an Italian option next time!
