Our family decided to spend mothers day here so we made reservations over the phone and were told that each plate would go for $25.00 for about 16 of us. So we get there and to find out that they were charging us $35.00 a plate with out warning "we got tricked". There alcoholics drinks are too expensive and watered down. Oh!! i almost forgot the waiters are nice enough to mark up their mandatory tips on the bill to RIP you off even more together with the valet. and they will push you to tip them so be careful. this place cares not about the recession.

two steak and rice plates for me and my wife ran up to $70 and another $30 for beverages and $20.00 with there tip.

Cons: Over priced food and rude service.

Oh my god! My family and I had the worst experience ever at El Cielito Lindo in South El Monte. So we all meet there to celebrate my birthday a couple of weeks ago.As soon as my husband and I pulled in the premises, the valet guys immediately rushed to our vehicle and said that they would appreciate a tip from us before we left the restaurant. We thought it was very rude of them to say this to us before we even stepped out of our vehicle. Shortly after that my brother arrived and got into a little argument with one of the valet guys. To make a long story short, the valet guy became upset and keyed my brother's new car. When my brother noticed the scratches the following day he immediately called the restaurant and demanded to speak to the manager. They gave him the run around and til this day they have not agreed to pay for the damages done to his car. I urge people to be careful and not piss off the valet parking guys because THEY WILL VANDALIZE YOUR CAR. We went in there that night and spend $500.00 on food and my brother even gave the valet guy a $25.00 tip. I defenitely feel that they need to be more professional when dealing with their customers. In conclusion, the food there was very expensive and I do not think it is worth the price. I WILL NEVER RETURN TO El CIELITO LINDO AND I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE.

Best Mariachis in the county, or world for that matter. The place is crowded and tables packed close together, but the food compensates. The music is loud, but it quite entertaining!

How in the *&^% does a meal costing $32.00 come out to $51.00 before sales tax and after 15% gratuity $65.15... Can someone please example because if any thing food was for peasants!

Everything was dipped in LARD! All unhealthy, and if you wanted to go healthy, the salad alone was $16.95 plus sales tax and an additional 15% gratuity.

Where are the good ol'days when my family paid for their meals, (+sales tax) and the mariachi's were a given; all day and all night!

We went here for my friends 21st birthday party. I thought it was awesome, the food was very authentic and the mariachi music was so cool. The trumpets were really loud and the singing was great. I would go back any day.

We recommend this restaurant to any and all who appreciate authentic Mexican food, and great Mariachi music for a reasonable price. Celito Lindo is excellent for any special celebration. Our family and friends have enjoyed eating at Celito Lindo for the past few years and have never been disappointed. We particularly enjoy the Sunday brunch.

I would not recommend this resaurant unless you really want to listen to mariachi. Definitely not for mother's day, or any other big holiday. The menu is different, and limited, overpriced $25.00 p/person, food is okay, not great. Drinks also overpriced, ($4.00 for a coke, $11 for mixed drinks,) poor and delayed service, unorganized sitting despite reservations made. I don't want to ever go back, just not worth it.

If your looking for mexican food, its average, but if your looking for great authentic mariachi then you've found the right place. Go for drinks and a great live show, its a blast with friends

The lunch buffets are very good, fresh handmade tortillas, salads, and desserts every day. I went to this restaurant many times for lunch on weekdays. This restaurant recommended people to call for reservations and there will be a 15 minutes grace period for all reservation. If you made a reservation for large party or on special occasions or holiday such as Mothers Day, they will charge 15% gratuity. (This was from the flyer) This restaurant is good for both large and small group of people. They are always crowded on special occasions. The shows are excellent and they are only from Tuesday to Sunday.
