My daughter recently got married and her now mother in law had the rehearsal dinner at el Serrano I had been here several times in the past and enjoyed it very much initially, then in recent years not so much. The food quality just hadn't been the same, service was slower. Maybe we were just getting there on bad nights?... More

This restaurant was always one of our favorites. My husband and I would always come here for things like our anniversary or to celebrate Valentine's Day because it was always very quaint and not quite as busy as the one in Lancaster. But the past couple of times you could tell that the food did not seem as fresh. It... More

Heard a lot of positive reviews, so I tried it out. My standard for a Mexican Restraunt centers around the Fajita's. I ordered the tri-combo and was underwhelmed. They did not come out sizzling and smoking like you would expect. Average taste at best. Probably won't go back

A friend took me there for lunch on my first visit & it was great. Took my husband back a few days later so he could enjoy the great food also. We have been back many times since. the food is great, the service is a little slow when they get really busy. Good idea to make reservations for dinner... More

The service was good. They have Peruvian and Mexican entrees and tapas choices. The food was very good. Everything was spiced correctly and the portions were generous. The margaritas were good but weak. The salmon was especially good and I recommend it. The restaurant is tight meaning you are seated close. They had live music which was good but a... More

My wife and I had eaten at El Serrano a few times and I have eaten lunch with friends there several times. To start this is not a franchise like most Mexican Restaurants in the area. The atmosphere is friendly. The décor has a Spanish flair and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. The best part is the cuisine... More

My husband and I dine out regularly. As with most other folks we have our favorite places and seem to get into a rut going again and again. Every now and then we enjoy finding something a little different. El Serrano, is that little extra POP to the week. This weekend we enjoyed a pitcher of Sangria with our meal... More

I had a Sunday afternoon lunch with good friends from out of town. As usual, the food was presented nicely and the food was very good. The service was lackluster and below average. The restaurant was not busy. There were ample opportunities for suggestive selling, but the service staff seemed disinterested. the maitre 'd had a professional appearance, but had... More

We have eaten here in York and El Sorrano in Lancaster. The food is excellent and the service is wonderful. We highly recommend the beef fajitas. We have had many things on the menu and enjoyed them all.

Thank Frances B
