Told we would have a 40 minute wait. After 30 minutes we checked on time and were told by the hostess that she had no idea how much longer because the kitchen was backed up. Asked to speak to the manager and were seated at one of the many open tables. Food was average and our server was fine. Validated... More

The food was excellent and we were very satisfied with our evening. Less good was the sound inside. Very noisy. We had problem to hear each other and the staff. The service could be better but on the other hand the place were very packed with people.

I've always loved El Toritos from when I lived in LA many years ago and always try to hit one whenever I come back for a visit. I was sadly disappointed last Sat. night at this Marina del Rey location. Bar service was presumptuous (for 10 minutes he never picked up our $20 bill--assuming we'd not want the change, no... More

Some of the dishes are very good. I enjoyed the burritos and tacos. I liked the ocean view and the restaurant setting. The staff was very attentive and friendly. After eating lunch we strolled along the area and enjoyed the sun and a beautiful sunny day.

Our first venture into Mexican food in California was not a disappointment. It was very busy on a Sunday lunchtime so we had to wait 30 mins or so for a table but it was worth it. Guacamole prepared at the table was delicious and I went for the macho combo which was a mix of just about everything. Tasty... More

The food is so delicious, the service is awesome and couldn't be better, the drinks are great, and the prices aren't bad either. Highly recommended for family, friends, or a romantic dinner overlooking the water from the window as you and your date enjoy dinner, drinks, or some fried ice cream that's mouthwatering good!

The food was underwhelming & we usually enjoy El Torito food. My enchiladas had very little filling & the margaritas were weak.

We had to wait to be seated, but that it wasn't too long. We ordered quickly but had to wait 40 mins for our food. Food was great but marred by the slow service
