El Barzon Ratings and Reviews
I LOVE this place!! Awesome food. Have been here many times. Ask for Alex, he’s wonderful!!
We really enjoyed El Barzon. Good vibe. Good food. A few of our group felt the food was ok.
My grilled calamari appetizer was outstanding!! Five stars for that! Service is very friendly but can be slow. We had a great time, but can't give 5 stars all around. Wish I could give 4.5.
We had Doris as our waitress she was amazing!!!! The food was delicious. We will come back again!!!
Best dinner ever!!! So flavorful, service was great! Can’t wait to go back!
We were going to the Windsor Casino & wanted to get something to eat prior to entering Canada. We had an awesome time with a fun server. She was pleasant, professional & funny. The food was fantastic and served hot, just how we all like it. The server came back several times to check on us, but not annoying at all. We were all very pleased with our meals. Highly recommend the TACOS with rice & beans.
Hidden away much like La Dolce Vita, but in a much different part of town, El Barzon offers equally good food but with a Mexican twist that is unique and delicious. Better still, the service is impeccable: prompt, attentive, and courteous. Only downside is a relatively weak bar selection but that shouldn't deter anyone from giving El Barzon a try. Ignore the ragged neighborhood and park in the rear where security is on watch. You will not be disappointed in this dining experience.
Food was amazing! The waiter Gustavo was informational and genuine. Will be coming back for sure.
Food was excellent. We ordered Italian . The Marsala Chicken, Veal and Pasta. All were excellent. The service was top notch. Loved this meal!
Not a good spot for New Years Eve. Very disorganized at the outset for first seating.
It was cold and drafty at our table, we let our server know and she fought for the next open table for us to move. She got us our new table quickly and the restaurant never sat anyone else in that spot so they wouldn’t have to be cold, we found that unusually thoughtful for any restaurant. Server was incredibly nice and the food was amazing as always.
The night we had dinner the heat was not working it was very cold in the restaurant
El Barzon is our go-to restaurant for excellent food, good service, and a menu that everyone in the party will like.
The food and service was wonderful as usual but for some reason it was uncomfortably cold. Also Opentable showed there were no reservations between 5-7 but when we left the restaurant at 630 we were the only ones in the restaurant.
El Barzon is my absolute favorite Detroit gem! You can't find food like this outside of Italy. It's the perfect mix of Italian and Spanish cuisine, with something to offer for everyone. I've been here multiple times for my birthday, friend's birthdays and family birthdays. Each and every time Eddie has treated the special occasion as if it were the only one happening in the restaurant. If you're in Detroit looking for the best spot to eat, this is it! And don't forget to request Allysia as your server! She makes your dining experience truly 5 star with her menu knowledge, warm welcome and attention to detail!
The neighborhood gave us pause. But the restaurant was nice, the food good and a very good wine and drink menu. We would go back for sure.
Absolutely loved this restaurant. Food was delicious. I will be a repeat customer.
Three words... It was awesome!
The food, the atmosphere and the service were fantastic! Gustavo, our waiter made the experience the best! I highly recommend El Barzon.
The waitstaff was fantastic and elegant. Long-awaited option in Mexican dining (Italian available, too). The menu options are a high-end take on typical fare; I've never raved about beans and rice, but here they've made even that absolutely delicious! I could've had a whole plate and been happy!
Our favorite spot in Detroit. Food was outstanding as usual! The Cavetelli is a must. Order a full plate as an appetizer and share with the table!
Consistently one of the best restaurants. The service is outstanding and the food as well. We have been going here for years and always walk away saying what a great experience love it!
We went here for a birthday. Was a great mix of foods. Was amazed at the selection of Italian and Mexican dishes. Both our meals were amazing. Would recommend to anyone and we return for many more visits.
Loved the authentic Italian and authentic Mexican food! So many delicious choices. Food was served hot and at a perfect pace for our corporate holiday dinner. He halibut was a hit with 4 of our guests and the veal chop was huge and tasty. I would recommend El Barzon for any event lunch or dinner.
My mom & I were seated right away & had our orders placed promptly. I ordered the pasta trio and she ordered the lemon chicken dish. We waited well over 45 minutes before our meal arrived. The restaurant became full after our order was placed. I’m not sure if our waitress forgot to enter it in, as tables seated after us received their meals before us. Frustrating but what can we do? We both ask for boxes, which she brought back promptly but minus our bill. We waited another 10-15 minutes and only received after we flagged another server down. I kept looking around for her but she never seemed to be available. The food was tasty but our overall experience was definitely soured by the poor service.
We took our grandson and his date before the concert. The restaurant was attentive and made sure we were served in a timely manner so we would not be late for the show.
The food was hot and delicious.
Eddie and the staff of El Barzon know how to treat their guest. Amazing food and top notch service. I will always recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Wonderful service, food and drinks! Glad to have gated parking
Food was wonderful, as was the service.
El Barzon is personally my favorite restaurant in Detroit. I just love the menu (food and drink) and the atmosphere. Alex is literally the best waiter I've ever had wait on me. This place never disappoints.
El Barzon was excellent. I highly recommend their specials and also their margaritas. I would send anyone here to eat!
Will go back
This was my second time, first with my wife this time for a business meeting. Regardless of the occasion this is an exceptional eatery. will be back.
Loud and disappointing but the server was fun and I’m glad we went but wouldn’t return
Food was very wverage
Food was great enjoyed the goat dinner. Very noisy and appears not enough servers to accommodate the crowd.
Food was cold when it was served. Only thing that disappointed me.
Goat tacos were perfect
Fantastic food and service. All but one of us decided on Mexican and it was fantastic all around.
Interesting menu of Italian and Mexican dishes!
Consistently excellent. I especially like the Italian side of the menu
Great food, great wine and great service. Our waitress, Kathy, was phenomenal with her suggestions.
