WE had heard about El Chorro from friends. WE got into Phoenix a little after than planned and decided to stop by and see if we could get a table with no reservation. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. We were seated immediately and offered cocktails, water and dinner suggestions. The entire staff were so friendly and welcoming and... More

The opportunity to dine in a beautiful outdoor patio with an incredible sunset was wonderful. The atmosphere is classic. Interesting menu, my sea bass and sauce was delightful, my guest's filet was great but a little too rare.The waiter was very helpful with the wine selection as well as the desert offerings which were so decadent !

But I'm even more pleased to read you also thoroughly enjoyed your meal and our excellent service.

We spent a very pleasant Saturday night enjoying the restaurant. The restaurant had a warm and cozy feel with all different areas to dine in and of course they have a great patio. We chose to sit inside. The food was very good - lobster bisque - wedge salad - seafood pasta and trout. Great sticky buns. Good wine and... More

WE tried out luck for Happy Hour on a Saturday night with a baby in tow. We had to sit in the bar area but found a suitable table and were given a high chair. We had numerous apps for 3 adults, all very tasty and some drinks. Worked out well as out baby was a doll.

No reservations on weekend night during Phoenix Open, so no tables in dining room. But we had a fine time eating in the bar area. Delicious food, server was a bit of an automoton, but all in all, highly recommend. Our only disappointment was that there was a private party in the older section so we couldn't tour the original...

While vacationing in Scottsdale recently we dined at El Chorro on a cold January evening. Our outdoor table by a fire pit was perfect. We were nice and warm and able to enjoy the lovely setting.
