Rafael and Daniel are awesome. They make the experience superb. The food is beyond expectation. Beautifully presented making the eye appeal drive the taste.
Always delicious and welcoming! And the food has gone from great to excellent!
Very good Mexican food ---with thoughtful recipes. Recommended.
Hands down the best Mexican food place in UES. Never been disappointed and always look forward to catching up with friends and family over amazing margaritas and food.
Only outdoor seating was available .
Had requested a modification to the paella, which The waiter assured me wouldn’t be a problem; however, it was not prepared as we had discussed.
Cesar our waiter was EXCEPTIONAL the food was delicious!
Our favorite neighborhood spot, without a doubt!
The hostess was a hot mess. Switched reservations, couldn't find our reservation, took me the wrong table and then directed a member of our party to several wrong tables. The manager was barely holding it together on a rainy night. He essentially accused me of lying about my reservation or making it at their other location. When I showed him the reservation in my app, that wasn't sufficient, and he wanted to see my confirmation email. All because the hostess checked someone else in on my reservation. No one apologized.
But, I've been coming here for years and will return. Service is good, food is good, and value is good. Part of the appeal of Toloache has always been the atmosphere. The outdoor huts in the front offer great privacy but zero atmosphere.
It's quite authentic Mexican food, the ambiance is not so charming, but the food was.
I have always enjoyed a great dinner and drinks here!
Great food, service and location. The ambience was fun and appropriately distanced from each other
Food was excellent and staff very nice and accommodating. We had a private outdoor room - it was comfortable and safe.
Overpriced, low-quality food. Extremely small portions. Manager was not wearing a mask.
Many other Mexican food options that offer a better meal and ambiance.
VERY underwhelming. Visited the 50th and 8th Ave location many times and based on this, was looking forward to the UES dinner. Starter and main courses all lacking flavor. The beef dishes – both of them - burnt. The staff were not able to reasonably cover all of their tables. Air conditioning not working properly. Interior dated like an old pub. In the past six years we have made over 1,100 reservations on OpenTable (we also use Resy and Seven Rooms) - we go out to dinner regularly. Most of our experiences are a 5 and some are 4. I am sad to say this was one of our worst dining experiences ever. The only five star element is that the servers were working as hard as they could and were very friendly - five stars for them and thank you to them.
The spicy guacamole was delicious! And the back patio is really beautiful and secluded
Food and drinks were great! The service was fantastic! Highly recommend this place!
Great food! Loved the outdoor seating set up. We had our own little space with a heat lamp. Service was quick and friendly. Accommodated allergies easily.
Lovely staff, good food. Great for a date
Amazing food, very courteous service, nice decor! I'll visit again!
Amazing dinner great service
Such delicious food! Great experience.
Cinco de mayo
Kitchen does pretty good job with the food but service/wait staff awful. And every little side is extra here.
Excellent Mexican food at reasonable prices and relaxed atmosphere.
The food came slow... that was the problem. Waiters were lovely, and food is subtle and delicious.
Yummy lunch with friends. Wish there were some lunch specials but otherwise everything was terrific. Love the outdoor dining out back.
Suchgreat service... and great margaritas too! Steve sat us in a quiet room and was so attentive. Everything was delicious! So great to be back at the neighborhood gem!
Excellent all around.
Daniel is a great host! The place is immaculate, the food is delish!
The service is informal and friendly and even in the midst of social distancing the restaurant manages to maintain a lively ambiance.
Food is always good and the margaritas are great.
The food was amazing. Love the yurt.
Neighborhood staple! So delicious, great service and drinks!
Delicious meal - cooked perfectly, great service and excellent cocktails, too.
Delicious food. Hard to find good Mexican in NYC and this is a solid option. A little on the pricey side but worth it.
Lovely outdoor private dining. Food consistently excellent
Was great to be back. Can't wait for the bar to be open again.
I am only writing text in this box so I can submit this review. OpenTable makes it annoying to submit reviews.
Toloache is a fantastic restaurant and a must go to. The manager is exceptional and his suggestions are spot on. Their guacomole was so good!!! The special blood orange margarita was to die for. The skirt steak was so tasty and delicious. I am so happy to find a place that makes a skirt steak this perfectly. This is one of my new favorite restaurants in the neighborhood.
Delicious food, strong margaritas and great service by Perla! The private outdoor cabins made us feel safe during covid. Highly recommend.
The wooden boxes were awesome and private. Perfect with the heater for a cold April night and the sliding window is genius! Awesome margaritas and guac. Now I can say I’ve been to all locations! #outdoorboxesarebest
