El Toro Blanco
exceptional food at extremelyexceptional food at extremely reasonable prices for NYC5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMyummy swordfish tacos!Need I say more? The El Toro margaritas are excellent, the guacamole for the table is a must, and the chicken enchilada is absolutely yummy. But the swordfish tacos--yes, they are small, but--are so exceptionally tasty and leave you room for dessert!
Excellent, very attentive service as well. Bravo!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMJust So Brilliant!I've been wanting to go to El Toro Blanco since it opened and it was well worth the wait! The place was pretty busy, but nothing too crazy. The chef was out of the kitchen and the scene was just so lively. We started off by devouring the queso which they had melted to perfection. The charred octopus tacos were cooked perfectly -- not too squishy and not too rubbery. The flavors all worked really well together. We then shared the carne which just tasted wonderful with the cheese enchilada. We finished off our meal with the not to be missed specials of the evening, the caramelized banana empanadas and strawberry horchata. This would definitely be my last meal -- that's saying something.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMclassy spanish foodThe chicken enchilada and the brisket empanada were yummy.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe empanadas were amazingThe empanadas were amazing for an appetizer and the El Toro margarita was perfection.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat spotGreat food, amazing drinks, attentive server, tres leches cake is a must.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMit was so noisy we ate soit was so noisy we ate so fast and wanted to get out as we could not even speak to each other4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for a special birthday.Went for a special birthday. The food and drinks were great, but the server was a bit impersonal and borderline rude. She even rolled her eyes once after we ordered something. With all of the amazing places in the area, I wouldn't rush back.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for brunch. We were seatedWent for brunch. We were seated right away. They allowed us to select a booth rather than a regular table. Our drinks were great, and the food was decent. I'll need to go back to sample additional dishes before making a judgement on the overall food quality but we all liked our selections. Service was excellent. We lingered for a bit after eating and they were totally cool with it.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant was casual butRestaurant was casual but nice. The food was delicious.

Loved the street corn side. My only complaint is that it's become a "scene". Make sure to make a reservation. A sincere thank you to the Manager for accommodating us because it was BUSY.2/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was so great. GreatOur server was so great. Great food and fun atmosphere2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Tequila, Food & SceneA Spanish newcomer with an energetic scene. Lots of hot models and guys trying to score. Nevermind the scene as the food is solid, as are the drinks. A complete tequila bar is a hidden Village gem. Welcome to the neighborhood! The steak was amazing.12/3/2012 12:00:00 AM
