El Encanto’s Commitment

Your Commitment as a Guest

  • We are committed to meeting or exceeding all state, local and regulatory guidelines relating to sanitation and hygiene with new procedures and training
  • We are monitoring our employees for any symptoms of illness by doing daily check-ins prior to work
  • We have added no-touch hand sinks to every dining room for the use of our guests and employees.  Our team members will wash their hands for 20 seconds between each and every guest contact.
  • Enhanced cleaning of our establishments every night and disinfecting after each guest
  • All linens and utensils are being managed with increased sanitation
  • Table are set at least 6 feet apart and we have created socially distant seating and waiting options
  • Please refrain from dining with us if you have a fever or any communicable illness or are under quarantine.
  • Please help us follow the appropriate social distancing by trying to stay 6 ft from staff and other guests
  • Please feel free to ask for any additional information or clarification on our policies.  Our staff will be able to answer any questions.
  • Wear a face mask at all times while not sitting at your table.


Our new Reservation and Wait List Policies:

Because we are not allowed to have groups congregate, we will not have space at the restaurant for
waiting. In order to serve you better and make you more comfortable, we will continue to take limited
reservations and we will be adding call ahead seating as well, so that you may
from the comfort of your home or vehicle.

If hanging out in the bar is your desire, please request seating in the bar and as with all special
requests we will do our best to accommodate you.

Also, because we have had to limit our tables in order to maintain a safe distance, we are asking that
you limit your dining experience to 1 hr 30 minutes. As always, we will be reasonable in enforcing this
policy, but we ask for your assistance in helping make the restaurant available to everyone.

We can’t wait to see you!!
