Love, love, love El Serrano. A must when visiting Lancaster!!!
Very good experience. Very flavorful food and drinks. Lovely outdoor seating.
This was our first visit to Lancaster, and El Serrano’s was an absolutely top notch choice! Service was outstanding and the food and cocktails were amazing!!
Great service provided by Micah was absolutely amazing. He was very helpful and made great suggestions. The food was fantastic.
Love the atmosphere Always good food and drinks
We sat out in the patio, when we first got there we were the only ones out there and then later a table of four came and that was it. Our waiter was fantastic and sitting outside was definitely a plus I was shocked that no one else was sitting outside it was a beautiful evening.
Love this place. A long-time favorite. We miss Dante, but still great place. Eager to return soon.
The food was wonderful and our waiter Matt was awesome!
Very disappointed to be seated in a very narrow area of the restaurant where it was very difficult to access the chairs or move after you were seated. We had a party of 10 and
one side of the table was backed up against windows and the other side of the table was subjected to servers squeezing thru to serve us or other tables. Just not a pleasant experience for the cost of the meal.
Not worth the hype. Slow service and terrible food. It was bland and soggy. Tried 5 different things from the menu and all were terrible. Only good thing was the ambiance
Food, service everything was truly exceptional. The Peruvian dish Lomo Saldado was excellent. Infant we will certainly be back.
Excellent food, choice between Mexican or Peruvian , I chose Peruvian, it was outstanding. ..Arroz con Mariscos, will repeat that for sure.
The marguerita was excellent as well.
Very good Peruvian food. Beef Lomita was a bit tough this time but usually everything is excellent. Nice Margaritas!
We traveled 2 hours to have dinner her it was great fast service great ambiance
Salmon in pisco sauce was delicious but served with white rice and bland veggies. Rice and beans might have been better. Salsa and chips were excellent. Fried avocado slices battered in panko bread crumbs with balsamic and jalapeño sauce were interesting and tasty. Garlic shrimp appetizer with toast was quite good. All other Mexican meals were reported as good not outstanding. They were out of the wine we wanted and substitute was mediocre. Margarita was more mix than alcohol.
When we were seated there was food crumbs in our chairs.
The waiter was very attentive and responsive to our special requests. We would try again but would probably go to the tapas bar for small plates.
Service was attentive. The salt levels in all the food is way too high. he food was fresh, looked good, and had good flavor profile. The yuca with garlic tasted great but at $9.00 for 4 pieces of yuca that were about 4" long and 3/4" wide is a high price.
Great food, great service!
Hope to return very soon!
Excellent food at reasonable prices. We chose outdoor dining and ate in a beautiful courtyard. Our server was very helpful and efficient. We really enjoyed our dinner.
This place is just so fun! It’s beautifully decorated and made me feel like I was eating somewhere in Spain or South America! Fabulous food and really efficient service. I highly recommend it.
Micah was an outstanding server. He was very conscientious but never intrusive. I had the chicken fajitas which was absolutely wonderful. You could tell that everything had been marinated for quite some time since the flavors really permeated the chicken and the vegetables. My partner had the combination which he really enjoyed as well. Can’t wait to come back to this wonderful establishment!
Wonderful food!! The best salsa….
let me sum this up quickly, they have excellent service and food.
Dined with my husband and his two brothers, who had never been to this location. For me, it has been years. They enjoyed the nachos supreme, and two of us had the Serrano margarita while the other two had the Fresh and Dirty margarita. Both were very good, especially considering our waitress was doing double-duty as the bartender. Unfortunately, the upstairs Culturas was closed, as was the courtyard because of the weather, but we enjoyed the architecture and ambiance of the lower level. Our meals were also very good, with generous portions. Madison, our server, was attentive without being annoying. She was a hustler, as she served a large portion (if not all) of the dining area.
Our server was delightful, the atmosphere unmatched, the food was delicious and we had no wait by reserving a table online!
The food was very good and the service was excellent. The waiter was attentive but not intrusive. We had a very enjoyable meal.
Always excellent service, atmosphere and food. Everyone is very friendly.
Air conditioning was not working so that was uncomfortable to dine in and eat trying to fan yourself. Would have been great to let us know upon check-in.
We had a 715 reservation drink and food order by 725 no food until 800 i believe if the restaurant know they are short handed and taking longer than normal service times they should have their staff inform the customers When I spoke to manager on duty all I got was excuses if they cant run a restaurant being short one person they need to think of another business
Excellent service, great selections, food was delicious.
The party who had our table before us wouldn’t leave after they paid their bill. They just hung out at the table, causing our reservation to be delayed. The restaurant offered us another table in a different section and the server was very accommodating even though she was swamped. We really appreciated the service. Food was excellent
Great food and atmosphere! El Serrano is one of our favorite places to eat and this time we took our girls(8 & 13) along with us. They loved it and said they’d like to come back.
Food was excellent. I had the Peruvian Pork chops.
Service was a little slow, but the place was packed on a Saturday night.
Even so, we got a little niche in one of the walls, so the noise level was not bad.
Wide ranging LatinX menu with a number of Peruvian specialties.
Great food. Friendly service. Courtyard is beautiful. Overall, very pleasant experience.
It's a lovely place with great décor. $18 for cheese enchiladas is a bit steep, but I'd come back for sure.
Everyone in our party enjoyed our dinners very much we couldn’t take any of the food home because we ate it all!Our server, Micah, was very attentive and professional with our table! Making the whole experience that much better :)
Excellent experience with good food and atmosphere. The staff was friendly and helpful.
We love El Serrano! The food,& the service are always great!! We come here with groups or just by ourselves. It’s our “go to “ place.
The food was delicious, service was fantastic, and despite being a hot summer day, there was a nice breeze that allowed us to truly enjoy the beautiful courtyard. We were a bit disappointed the large, beautiful fountain wasn’t operating, but they prettied it up with a collection of ferns. Can’t wait to go back!
