Modern Mexican – Inspired, Sophisticated, Authentic Our mission will always be to serve classic Mexican dishes prepared with the sophistication of a fine dining restaurant in a casual and approachable manner. Tocolo Cantina serves refined, modern Mexican food in a friendly, high-service, and casual atmosphere. The restaurant space was designed to merge the modern elements of a California eatery with those of a Mexican cantina to create a warm and inviting feel. It is fit with encaustic tile, copper walls, a lively bar in the center of the room, and a hydraulic garage door that forms an outdoor canopy when opened. We aim to provide the best Modern Mexican dining experience on Long Island. Our menu incorporates both traditional Mexican fare and our own modern interpretations of customary dishes. The menu’s mix of small and large plates, as well as its two large communal dining tables, hopes to inspire long celebrations over food. Since no great cantina is complete without a lively bar and lofty cocktail program, Tocolo Cantina promises to deliver the best margaritas and sangrias around. The bar offers delicious specialty drinks, as well as a large selection of premium tequilas and mezcals. Tocolo Cantina was rated “Excellent” by The New York Times and “Very Good” by Newsday. We strive to deliver the best Mexican food on Long Island.

Outdoor dining tables are not reservable, but we lucked out and got seated outside. Covid protocols made me feel safe. Service was great and I enjoyed my dinner and sangria. Would definitely go here again.

Went to celebrate a birthday no one acknowledged this even thought it was included in the reservation and in person. Regardless I gave them 5 stars because I’ve been here many times before and it’s always been a good experience. The food and atmosphere were great and it was just a pleasure to be out. Disappointed though re: acknowledgment of the celebration.

Cinco de Mayo was a packed scene - the entire staff was on their game. Accommodating the tent, the bar, the walk-in’s & the restaurant.

Always “our go to restaurant”! Great food, drinks, ambiance.

See you soon!

The female manager sat us near the bar at first when there were plenty of unoccupied tables throughout the restaurant. I assumed this was an oversight or a simple lapse in judgment. On the way out though, my boyfriend forgot to wear his mask while exiting. When the female manager reminded him of the policy he apologized immediately but she admonished him anyway adding "There are signs everywhere". Her tone was rude and considering that she was blocking the exit and barely moved when I said "excuse me" I can only assume her customer service skills generally leave something to be desired. Everyone else was polite, but there are too many Mexican restaurants in the area to deal with that.

Quality "Modern Mexican" (some would call it Tex-Mex) in the usually busy The Gallery At Westbury Plaza shopping center. Great lunch spot, particularly when you are already shopping in this complex. The ambience is nice, and it isn’t too noisy. At the moment, there are fewer table inside and there are partitions between the table. These are welcome precautions taken during this COVID era we are in at right now.

Our server was efficient and attentive – not too intrusive but present whenever we needed anything. As for the food, my party of the enjoyed everything we ordered - Yucateco guacamole with chips, steak fajitas, chicken tacos, & grilled fish tacos. The food was more than enough, and we left full but without ever feeling gross afterwards. The staff took necessary safety/sanitation measures like wearing gloves and masks and thoroughly wiping down tables with sanitary wipes as soon as diners left.

Additional outdoor dining is clutch and in high demand on nicer days like this past Saturday. The pricing is fair if not really good for the quality and quantity of food you get. Parking is available in the spacious lot, although be forewarned that it can be pretty busy during prime shopping hours. All in all, an enjoyable experience and we definitely will come back. Hoping to check out the dinner scene soon.

We all thought that we were being rushed . I understand that it was Friday but like it's covid and not all the people get the time off from work so the waiter should have let us sit instead of rushing us

I was pleasantly surprised how great the food was. The restaurant is much smaller in person that I expected. However the service was great and the mixed fajitas delicious! I just wish they had more outdoor seating as I am not going to be eating indoors!! But I would certainly go back!!
