I visited this restaurant because a client highly recommended it! He was right, it is extremely good! Sick vibe too! We loved the wait staff here. They were so friendly, and even the GM stopped by to check in on us! The food was really good as well. We ordered a handful of things for the table. In all honesty, our steak was done really well! My friends ordered more seafood dishes and enjoyed them as well. 4 stars because the food was great but it didn’t stand out amongst some other restaurants.
Tourist trap u should avoid. Terrible experience. Took them around 40 mins to get bloody food on our table. Unacceptable standards and shameful for charging us when I left hungry.
The whole experience was great! I got the NY strip steak, medium, and it was about as perfect as you could’ve wanted. The brussel sprouts were absolutely amazing, you gotta get em! Lol. I topped it off with some flan and whipped cream and I sure as hell left a happy camper.
Great food and staff. My go to at least once each trip to Chicago.
FOOD QUALITY: 7/10 EMPANADAS - 7/10 it was okay. CHORIZO - 4/10 it was too salty! I hope they will less that salt and add more flavors on it. JAPANESE SWEET POTATO - 10/10 Exceeded our expectations! It was so delicious and reminds me of one of our filipino dish/dessert in Philippines. LOBSTER TAIL - 8/10 Quality of serving was good for its price. Goes well with the spicy sauce. Lobster doesn’t have after taste at all so you really have to make sure you put the sauce on it. It was cold when served. NEW YORK STRIP STEAK - 6/10 It was cold when it was served to us. Steak was dry considering its cooked medium well. Chimichurri taste bland.. unlike the other chimichurri I’ve tried before. The only good part is that, it’s not chewy.. it was tender and good when you pair it with Japanese sweet potato. FLAN - 7/10 it was okay. Not too sweet but warm not sure if that’s the way they serve it. Maybe it’s a lot better if its cold. OVERALL EXPERIENCE: 7/10 We were expecting too much since a lot of vloggers in Instagram been posting a lot of reel videos/reviews about El Che but there’s nothing special about it. It was a complete exceptions vs reality. But there’s always room for improvements and hopefully El Che will improve more with the quality and flavors of their food since the prices for each of their dish was expensive and of course each guest deserves to get what they paid for. STAFF: 10/10 All of their staff were very friendly, fast and accommodating. AMBIANCE: 10/10 It was a really classy and cozy atmosphere. Parking: Street Parking
