The El Serrano Family of Restaurants has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the 1980s as a food trailer at the York Fair--and while it is thousands of miles from Owner Manuel Torres; native Peru, stepping though its hand-carved mahogany doors is like entering a Latin-American hacienda.
Come and discover why we have been in Lancaster since 1993...enjoy Tex-Mex favorites like chicken fajitas or Peruvian specialties such as Lomo Saltado.
Explore our new tapas menu with dishes like Avocado Frito and if you are over 21, ask for a sample of our own Finca de Torres selection of wines from our vineyard and winery in Spain.
Food was excellent. We tried several different apps, tapas, entrees, drinks, and desserts, and everything was excellent. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Honestly, one of the best we’ve ever had, and I worked in restaurants for years. Highly recommend El Serrano. Wonderful experience.
Peruvian cuisine is not cooked properly. Beef was burned.
Went for a special occasion & the staff was very accommodating. Food was delicious as always.
First time in the York El Serrano, it was good good and hood service.
Excellent food and excellent service. A very enjoyable restaurant.
Salmon del Sur was excellent. Peruvian dish made with wild caught salmon. Will definitely order again
Food was great and service was fast!
Love this place. We’ve gone here for years. Great food, good value, nice atmosphere.
Everything on the menu is good. Service is friendly. Will continue to return!
Food was outstanding! Definitely coming back soon.
This was our first visit to El Serrano in several years. We don'y go because we just do not think about it because of its location. The service was outstanding and the food excellent.
We were celebrating my husband's birthday with friends. It was a great evening.
Although I had to wait for my requested table a little too long, The food and service were great!
We will certainly go back.
Well, can’t say enough about how great our meal was. We had our own little “room” which was great during these COVID times. The food and wine were amazingly good... so good that there was barely a crumb left on our plates and we had dessert.
Excellent as always
The only issue we had was that our pork chops and pollo fundido lacked some of the usual fajita seasoning. Otherwise, all good.
Always an excellent meal here with excellent service. Great to find such service during the pandemic. Glad they are open and serving indoors. Don't hesitate to try El Serrano - York if you haven't already. Salsa and chips are excellent.
We loved it! Phenomenal food and wonderful service. A+
We had an amazing meal service was excellent we purchased 2 bottles of wine to take home with us
Valentines Day dinner for my husband and I- service was slow and inattentive. All other servers visited their tables to offer a “last call” as the bar is required to close early due to COVID. Our server came 15 minutes too late so we only got one drink the entire night. Food was of good portion-sizes but pretty bland. I’ve also been to the restaurant in Lancaster and had a much better experience.
Food was adequate, service was decent. I think the quality overall has really gone down hill since COVID. They now have a cheaper liquor license so the options are very limited.
There were like 7 different types of bourbon but not one vodka selection. Very few wine options as well.
The food is authentic and fabulous every time I come here. One of my favorites for sure!
Been enjoying El Serrano for 15 years now. The family and I patronize at least once a week if not more. Absolutely love the owners and their wonderful attentive staff. Not to mention the food is out of this world! Never had a dish I didn’t enjoy!
Fun night -
Service was ok
Went there at 6:00PM on Saturday to get ahead of the busy time. Great food and service as usual.
One of the best restaurants in York. I took my mother there for her birthday and we enjoyed everything!
I eat there regularly. This time they delivered the wrong salmon dinner selection but when the correct one came out it was one of the best Salmon Serrano dinners I ever had there...
Food is very consistent, but presentation is just lackluster for the price. Charging extra for substituting vegetables for rice or whatever. Drinks were small but prices high.
A staple in York for decades, El Serrano-York delivers a worthwhile dining experience.
We enjoyed the food, but service was a little sloppy.
Excellent, authentic Peruvian and Mexican cuisine, served in an unassuming dining room. We went for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed! The margaritas we ordered were an great start!
Unassuming location in a strip mall however, Great service and food, great atmosphere. I would recommend.
El Serrano consistently has good food and margaritas! The service was excellent as well.
My name is Penny not Colleen....however, everyone was so nice and pleasant, our waitress was a gem.....nice young lady. I love the Cheeseburger, I'm not wild about mexican/pervuian food, however, I love that my friends can enjoy their food and I can enjoy a cheeseburger.
My meal was excellent! Compliments to the chef who created a succulent pork chop to go with the other items on my platter. Diana was attentive and accommodating, as it was my first in-restaurant dining since CV-19 arrived.
It was great as always!
Ate over 100 times here and NEVER had a bad meal . Atmosphere and service are superb.
Overall my experience was good but I hope they could have more vegan options and have a mark fo GF, Vegetarian and Vegan food next to the menu item. I know they have a whole”Vegeteriano” section but it didn’t indicate if it’s just vegetarian or vegan.
We’ve gone to El Serrano many times, this past time our waitress was not very friendly & did not check back often enough.
Server was very pleasant. 5 ladies and we all enjoyed our food!
