El Portal is a great Mexican and Aztec restaurant. Margaritas are good and it's close to the Pasadena Playhouse. Management and wait staff are friendly and service is great. Highly recommend.

Not really good or tasty food, I ordered machaca & it was pretty tasteless, I left feeling that I paid for something that it wasn't good & of it, I didn't finish it & I was still hungry afterwards. Won't go back.

Waiter kept pushing specials, not appreciated. Had to tell him three times that I wanted Carnitas , not chicken. Ordered flour tortillas, he brought corn way before meal was brought. Had to take back. When I got the flour was surprised at the bad quality, should have been fresh, handmade. Instead, they were small, tasteless (supermarket quality) and burnt around the edges. Cadillac Margarita was ok, not handcrafted, usual mix used. May go back but not at all inpressed

We love El Portal. They specialize in Yucatecan food but have all the usual Mexican specialties. We very much enjoyed our dinners last Friday night. Service excellent. I thought it was too cold for a margarita so enjoyed the Spanish wine - much better wine than most Mexican restaurants serve. This was excellent. We took some home so had another meal the following day for lunch.

Love this place, but not thrilled about the “complimentary “ postcard photo and then the up selling of framed photographs. Music is nice too, but not the expected tipping. If they want these treats to add to the ambiance, just increase the prices and include it gratuitously.

The emphasis is on Yucatan cuisine, although the menu is complete in offering everything you would expect of a Southern California Mexican restaurant. I particularly like the cochinita pibil.

Restaurant served flat draft beer and weak overpriced margaritas. Though food is tasty and well prepared, the prices exceed those of other comparable Mexican restaurants. In addition, we have dined there twice in the past several months and not received credit on Open Table for our visits.

We've been eating at El Portal for years and really enjoy the food and ambiance, plus it's very convenient when going to the Pasadena Playhouse. Their flavor pallet is milder than the hotter Baja spices in most SoCal Mexican restaurants. I love them both and having the additional variety is nice.
