Success! Thanks for posting your review of El Paso. You’ve done the world some good today.

good on the way to the movies

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.

The best dinner I've ever had!

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!

The Worst I've had in a long time.

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). ... view more

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 brother... view more

Great Food, Great Place, Great Service!

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!

Great Food, Great Service, Great Price

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.

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.

Great Food, Great People

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.

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.
