good on the way to the movies 8/2/2008

El Paso is a Mexican-Spanish place which can stand comparison with many other such places in the Village: it's decent food, nothing spectacular. However, they do have some interesting specials (I tried the broiled lobster), and it's a good spot on your way to one of the various independent movie theaters in the area. They have a full bar and a small outside patio, right on Houston. more

The best dinner I've ever had! 11/24/2007

I cannot say enough about how wonderful the food is at this little place in the village! The atmosphere is great and the wait staff is very friendly. My absolute favorite is the arroz con pollo. My friend had the paella and said it was the best she ever tasted. Don't forget to ask for the white sangria; it is fantastic. I can't wait to go back. I'm already planning my next visit! Pros: Awsome food and service for a great price more

The Worst I've had in a long time. 9/28/2007

We went based on the good reviews because we were looking for a quick bite to eat in that area before heading over to the Angelika. Should my review cover our time before or after the waiter farted on us? The chips and salsa were lame, the surprise salad before the meal was basic, drowning in french dressing (I would have been happy without a salad, being that I was never served one in a spanish restaurant before). And to say the dinners were mediocre is a compliment. At least me spending $50 on food we didn't eat was gratified by me giving it to a homeless woman 2 blocks away as we then ate peanut M&Ms before our movie. more

Delicios 2/13/2006

We've been going to this place for about 2 years - I accidentally discovered it passing by on Houston. Great paella and higadillos (chicken livers). Yum sangria and very-very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Veal is great as well. If you're going on the weekend night or a holiday it makes sense to make a reservation - the space is tight. The owner Pedro and the waiters are some characters - they look like brothers ;) Overall a great dining experience for a very moderate price. A must go. Pros: private atmosphere, excellent food Cons: stale bread more

Great Food, Great Place, Great Service! 10/29/2005

This place is phenomenal! We enjoyed the food and the sangria rocks! Try the blonde sangria...most restaurants don't even have it! The staff is very friendly and very accomodating. I asked for a virgin piña colada (which was delicious) and got it without a problem. I will definitely be a regular customer at this restaurant! more

Great Food, Great Service, Great Price 9/7/2005

We went here on a whim and were so pleased with this little, unassuming restaurant. Great paella (if that's how you spell it). Pleasant staff. Fast Service. Great Food. Pros: Food, Great Service, Inexpensive more

Wonderful! 6/19/2005

A brilliant little spot--intimate and authentic with LOVELY staff and FABULOUS food. The "Vegetarian Delight" (a cheese enchilada and a bean burrito) is great... I've been three times now and will definitely go back. Pros: enchiladas, sangria!, inexpensive more

Great Food, Great People 10/16/2004

First of all, anything with cheese in it is spectacular here. I don't know what they do to it but it is sooooo good. Try the enchiladas or the quesadilla. The seafood is a great value and is the lobster special for $14, the paella, or the shrimp in garlic sauce. Do yourself a favor and get to know the friendly owner and staff. Pretty soon you will be a regular and you never saw it coming. Pros: Good value, great drinks, Very friendly Cons: , no delivery more

1er-gout 5/22/2004

A delightful retreat after a long day's work. The perfect corner, tucked into the cusp of Soho, to meet a friend and unwind with friendly service and spicy, surprising cuisine. Highly recommend the seafood medly and any of the various veal dishes. Whether your in the mood for a traditional Mexican meal or flavorful Spanish cuisine, this is the place to eat your fill. Take it from a regular. Pros: Authentic Atmosphere, Delicious Dishes, Refreshing margaRitas more

Best Bang for the Buck Mexican 1/2/2004

For the price ($14 fajitas) you get a great 1.5hrs of entertainment....starting with the food the fajitas were nicely spiced and juicy and it came with incredibly thin tortillas (unlike the often thick bready kind you get elsewhere) plus it included a salad. on top of the food & great service (water guy was always present), you have the mariachia man to entertain. He played Sinatra's My Way in Spanish while we were there, it was great ask him to play it if you go. Great place, one odd thing the woman at the door didn't speak English??? which struck me as odd. more

Ok, not great 10/12/2003

From the other reviews I was expecting much better. The chips were stale (they finally brought out fresh ones after the second basket was sent back.) The bartender was unfriendly and unaccomodating. I asked for a virgin margarita because I'm pregnant and he said he couldn't make it. The traditional mexican dishes were good but don't order anything that's a stretch. My friend ordered the tuna steak medium rare and it came back well done. If you like Mariachi music at your table frequently, you'll enjoy this experience. Pros: good mexican food, festive atmosphere, good location Cons: cut corners on basics, adequate service, not impressive more

abolustely the best 10/21/2002

This restaurant is the best. My husband had the fish which he said was terriffic, I had a combo plate and black bean soup which was absolutely wonderful. The owner is very friendly, the service was perfect and friendly as well. The atmosphere is great. I just wish this restaurant was where we lived. Prices are very resonable. If you want a perfect place to eat this is it. Pros: great food, great service, great atmosphere Cons: none, none, none more

Seafood Lover's Heaven 10/16/2002

El Paso is a wonderful and pleasant restaurant! The service is fast and friendly. The food is delicious...the Stuffed Lobster is a seafood lover's dream come true! The owner, Pedro, is always on hand to make his patrons feel at home. The Sangrias and Pina Coladas are to die for! The Spanish and Mexican decor and music make a wonderful addition to this exceptional restaurant! Pros: FOOD, SERVICE, INEXPENSIVE more

Customer for Life 8/10/2002

Pleasant, wonderful and charming. This is a very nice restaurant. The service is prompt and the staff genuine and friendly. The food was great as well. I have been to some of the most expensive and trendiest restaurants in the city and few match the service and quality of this little place. Pros: Great Service, Great Food, Nice Waiters Cons: Non more
