I celebrated my birthday at Toro Toro. They were very accomdating to my last minute reservtion needs. My only complaints are the establishment was pretty busy, which meant our server was often nowhere to be found or waiting on other tables. Also, our waitress was in training and she incorrecly process our bill. Other than these two minor issues, I had a great time celebrating my birthday at Toro Toro.

Good place for a drink and ceviche with friends. Empenadas and fish tacos were good too. Service was friendly. It doesn't have a very professional vibe but it's fun and casual.

There was nothing special about this restaurant! For this being my first time, the food was horrible! All of our first dishes came out COLD, and had to be sent back. The second round of dishes we had took even longer to come out! I would not recommend this place to anyone, nor go back.

We were a large group and chose the Menu de Familia - great value, the group didn't have to select their own meals, it was easy! And, so much food. Wow, more than we were expecting - plenty to have us more than full!

Me and a close friend of mine (that I’ve known since elementary school!) were having a little after the holidays catch up session. We both had a lot going on and the drinks/food here definitely released us! The food was delicious and the drinks definitely had a little kick to them lol. All of that is unlimited and it’s only $40! Totally worth the price!

Went for the bottomless brunch and the food was fantastic. Our waitress came and checked on us frequently, we never had to flag her down and she let us stay past the two hour limit so we could finish our drinks. The food is absolutely amazing! The huevos rancheros and empanadas were a table favorite. Amazing experience!

The service was slow; the food was bland; they erroneously charged my friend’s credit card and didn’t bother to mention that he would see a temporary charge. I should have stayed home and made eggs! They should rename the place to “Terrible Terrible!”

Toro Toro is always my spot to go! Had a family out of town and decided to go there for brunch. Service was on point, bartender made us the best cappuccinos we had in a while! We decided to do bottomless brunch and it’s really way to do it!

Toro Toro is one of my favorite places to gather with my group of friends. We celebrated my fiancé’s birthday (we were a group of 8) and the restaurant had our table ready. Half of my party was 20 min late, but we were seated anyways. We all enjoyed the Unlimited tapas menu. Delicious! We had a great time and the downstairs club had great music.

This new restaurant is still working out the details. It is beautiful and modern, but upon arrival, their system could not locate our reservation, despite multiple confirmations in advance. Nevertheless, we were accommodated. Service was slow, probably due to the holidays and small staff, but the restaurant wasn't full. All our meals were very good, but pricey. This place has potential, but may need to work on management.

Came with friends near the end of their brunch service. The wait staff was attentive and worked with us to get our orders in before the kitchen closed to prepare for dinner service. No matter whom we flagged down to get in some last-minute orders, including the hostess and host, everyone we dealt with was extremely polite and professional. This is a rare level of service in the area. We all did the bottomless brunch, and although some of the dishes were lacking, most of the options were flavorful and enjoyable. Would recommend.

The service was terrible. We asked 3 different servers for food and ended up with way more food than we asked for in the end. Highly disorganized service. The only thing that made up for it was that the food was delicious.

Toro Toro is always an amazing experience. However, we were seated next to a massive (and super loud) party (who stayed long past the 2 hour limit). We could barely hear ourselves or the server. It made a perfectly awesome brunch just unenjoyable.

We were a group of 12 demanding moms having a night out.. and while service was a bit slow with the drinks, the manager made up for it by treating us to plates and plates of free deserts. We were thankful for that but at the same time it was the right thing to do on their part. The food was excellent! We wound absolutely return.

My friends and I shared the $45.00 unlimited appetizers and anticuchos. Our server was fantastic and the food was delicious. My mojito traditional was also great. The only thing that temporarily disturbed our peace, was a homeless woman came in asking for money. My friend was kind enough to speak with her and give her money and de-escalated the situation.

Everything seems nice but some of the server(s) had hard time understanding. My table server did not explain well either....it was nice and charming but couldn't explain clearly.
