My lifelong habit of visiting Dana Point Harbor never brought me back. Until recently, El Torito was one of my favorite restaurants in the area and my date took me there due to its delicious food options. We were both dehydrated and exhausted from being at the beach all day long. I decided to take a seat next to the window and enjoy watching boats passing by on our trip.

Today, I went to Dana Point El Torito for the first time in years and had a wonderful time. Our server, Arturo, was always there to ensure our well-being and provided us with constant support. We were sometimes rushed out, but Arteuro never seemed to be too busy. It will definitely be missed!

I'm aware that my return will never be the same. The lunch was served warm and dry with less flavor, while my husband's meal was at least slightly warmer than mine. It appears that the staff member who handled the server is not paying attention, but the chips were tasty.

My taco Tuesday was a hit, and my server Julie N made sure to suggest the Blackberry Cadillac as an alternative. I thought it was delicious! Happy chicken macaroni...whatever that means?

During our Sunday brunch, I was treated to outstanding service by Arturo's attentive servers who were always on-task and accommodating. The manager was very friendly and there were no issues with the food or drinks during our stay. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for quality service!

The waitress refused to allow the kitchen to make the food a second time, citing their tendency to burn it. It was incredibly frustrating when we were taken away by whoever fed us the leftovers before he could come over for help. This place used to be nice until now.

Enjoyed the beautiful marina view from their Sunday brunch at this lovely restaurant. The Chile Verde buffet, sweet corn cake, and bottomless mimosas were everything I could ask for! Our server was attentive and kept the glasses flowing. Highly recommended. Thank you very much.

During our recent visit to eltorito in dana point, my fiancé and I were treated to tasty food. However, we had to make arrangements for an appointment as we were both allergic to certain foods due to food allergies. The waiter was not able to bring us drinks that were served hot and we could finish our meal quickly.
