We were very impressed with this little Sushi gem. We didn't try tapas but stuck with sushi and edamame which was all delightful. Service was attentive and friendly. We will go back even without a Groupon coupon.

Found the place originally through Groupon. We had a wonderful time at O-Toro. Food was excellent. Service was great. Always available and very helpful staff. We got asked whether to have our tapas or sushi first so food was not sitting out getting cold. The tapas were served nice and warm and it was a very relaxed environment. We didn't feel rushed but at the same time the service was very prompt and attentive to our requests. Great restaurant. They excepted the Groupon with no problem. We will definitely be back.

They only had two servers, but it's a small place so not many are needed. However, our server seemed to be doing most of the work, causing a few mistakes that were not his fault.
The food was very good, I did find a bone in my duck taco which was the only thing I found remotely wrong with it. At least I knew it wasn't processed duck at that point. :o)

We love the wine bar concept.
We love the wine bar concept. O'Toro is notable for having an interesting and expansive wine selection, including many international wines (French and Australian, especially). This is a rare place on the Main Line where one can order nice French wine by the glass. We like the wine sampler and trying several different wines. Sashimi and Apps/Tapas are good, we recommend the Duck Tacos, Calamari Salad, Tuna Tartar. While we like the Sashimi, we found some of the rolls too complicated for our taste.

My partner & I enjoyed a delightful lunch. She had two different rolls, I had two tapa plates. Both were good choices as all were presented well and were delicious. Service was casual, but friendly. Loved the decor of the dining room. We will be back!

Amazing tuna roll was pretty
Amazing tuna roll was pretty amazing! I also love the mushroom flatbread and was impressed by the sliced filet with mushrooms. I would skip the filet dumplings next time. Calamari salad was good and a nice size portion. I do think the wine pours are pretty weak- seems less than 4 oz to me... But it's a good selection by the glass. Cool vibe.

Great Addition to the Neighborhood
Went to O-toro on a Friday night for 'date night' in order to use our Groupon - our first visit to the restaurant. We were very suprised at home many kids were there. Which was fine, we just didn't realize it was such a 'kid-friendly' place given the cuisine. The menu is about half sushi and half tapas dishes - which made for a nice variety of choices. We split 2 tapas plates and 2 sushi rolls and 1 desert - which was a good amount for 2 people. The mushroom flatbread was outstanding - as was the 'bag-o-donuts.' I will definitely be back - next time with my son - who loves sushi!

Had tried for lunch and enjoyed
Had tried for lunch and enjoyed it but was wowed beyond expectation at dinner. My husband and I shared 5 items including a sushi roll, duck tacos, filet mignon dumplings, miso soup and sea bass tostadas a Everything was fantastic, melt in your mouth. We also enjoyed sharing two different white wine flights where you could pick three. They brought these out on a great glass rack that holds the three individual full-sized wine glasses with very handy white tags on the stem that identified each wine. This is really very helpful and appreciated. The wine list is very unique. We had never heard of many of the wine varietals or wineries. Having a wine flight choice enabled us to enjoy some new wines. Service was friendly and low-key.

Great food, wonderful wine list, great bar service. Had a great time.

Attentive service. Nice selection
Attentive service. Nice selection of sushi and tapas. Food was really good--my husband and I particularly liked the mushroom flatbread and mango roll. The one negative is wine is on the pricey side and pours are not very generous.

O-toto is DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!
O-toto is DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! If you live in the area and have not been to O-toro, you are missing out. Big time.

All four of us thought the
All four of us thought the sushi was very good as well as a chicken and beef dish The wine list gave us an opportunity to try wines we had not had before. The server was friendly and attentive.

Great sushi, ok service.
Love the mix of sushi and tapas at this great little spot. For the quality of food the prices are good, and 1/2 price lunch is a steal! Service is always slow, but I have come to expect that. Dinner service is much better than lunch.
4/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, limited cocktail menu
Everything we tried was amazing. The duck tacos, edamame, Korean fried chicken skewers & filet mignon dumplings. All delicious. The only problem I saw was that the cocktail list is very limited. There are plenty of wine options, but if you want a cocktail, you're out of luck.

Keep Going Back
Second visit within a month. Small but excellent menu choices, creative wines and drinks, yummy sushi and tapas. Our server Beth was friendly and we appreciated the pacing of the meal. With so many tapas/small plate type restaurants that are all the rage you get overwhelmed with food piling up on your table. Beth was able to control things so that food came in "rounds" with plenty of time to digest and enjoy the evening.

Loved the sushi, great service, half price lunch makes this a great value!!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
O-toro is a wonderful place. Great food, more than just sushi is on the menu, along with a variety of wine choices with an elegant bold decor.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
good neighborbood fine
First visit. Service was good. Some dishes better than others, but all pretty good the same. The New England roll was exceptional I would certainly eat there again.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very disappointed. I have
Very disappointed. I have been eating here since they opened and considered it the best and most creative sushi/ tapas around the area.
This time we were very disappointed. The flatbread tasted re heated, the sushi was mushy, the soup was salty!
Very little attention to the quality they started with.
The people at the bar, including the bar tender were loud and acted as if no one else was in the restaurant.
If they stay at this level instead of how they started they will be gone. I will not go back now!

LOVE LOVE O-TORO
Have been before and it gets better and better! GO for Wino Wednesdays. Half Price WIne bottles- all of them! and from 4-7 half price sushi.
Definitely get spicy tuna roll, and filet dumpling, and nori filet tapas... and fries- yum! Mac and cheese delicious! Really everything we got was awesome.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food. 1/2 price sushi great concept. Keeps is coming back.
We miss the tuna tartar
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sorry we waited so long!
If you are a sushi snob, this place is not for you, but if you like experimentation and excellent flavors, don't wait to give O-toro a try. Starting with the edamame and a good beer selection, we had a terrific meal. The nori crusted filet was perfectly cooked and tender. The godfather roll added prosciutto and mango to a traditional tuna and avocado roll with a great result. We will definitely be back soon so that we can work our way through the whole menu. The dishes came out at a nice pace and service was attentive.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The good was delicious! A little spicy if you don't like spicy... They use the chili peppers which can almost be too hot depending on how they are used. Sushi was great! Tapas were fun! Ambiance was chill!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time at O-Toro, but it will not be our last. The hand rolls were outstanding and the duck tacos were to die for!
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a hit
We go here all the time.. and love it every time.... WiNO wednesdays are the best.... they have an ever changing wine list and half price wine bottles on Weds. Half Price Sushi during happy hour... definitely worth a try... oh and its not just sushi.. they are a tapas restaurant- so lots of other stuff to try... the filet dumplings -are delicious. and the filet tapas dish is a must try!
7/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
We tried this on a weekday evening (Wednesday) in July. The restuarant was not too crowded. Sushi was very good. Some very interesting flavor combinations for the rolls. Not your standard options. We also took our two kids (4 and 7) and they actually had good options for them as well (seems like kitchen is shared with neighboring restaurant). But it worked out well for us because our 4 year old is not too into sushi.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Half-Price Sushi is the way to go
All the food that I've tried at O-Toro is good, but if you want sushi, it's half price before 3pm. So worth it!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best sushi outside of Philly, and great cocktails and tapas too. Rock solid good food!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
There were two birthday celebrations, one after another at O-toro. I felt it is a great place for a teen's party. Good food and great atmosphere!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
O-Toro has great ambiance, a wonderful wine list...but their sushi is AWESOME! Thursdays are 20 pieces for $20 - a steal in this area! And it's not just for "tuna roll" or "California roll". We had some specialty rolls that were awesome!
We will be back!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Continues to Impress
Food has always been great here, and their service has ramped up to be very attentive. Duck Tacos and Tuna rolls are highlights for us.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great sushi and small plates
This was my second time at O-toro and I enjoyed it as much as the first. The dish that stood out the most was the calamari salad--generous chunks of tempura fried calamari tossed in a frisee, with an amazing dressing--it was so flavorful, we cleaned the plate--and it was a large portion. Also enjoyed the tuna nachos as well as the sushi rolls that we ordered. Service was very good. I hope the place does well--our part of the main line could use more restaurants like this.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is so good!! Love
The food is so good!! Love the sushi special it is smart and gets us in the door the tapas are tasty and unique that it's hard to stay away. The duck tacos were perfect, nori crusted fliet of beef cooked to perfection we were licking our plate.

Yummy Sushi & Tapas
The food itself was wonderful. We did have a slight wait for one sushi order we put in. However, the last dish we had which was a steak and mushroom dish was incredibly good.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was SO delicious, especially the duck tacos! My only critique would be the water. I know that seems weird, but my sister and I both felt the water tasted like iron & minerals, which is why we ordered drinks instead!
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Still going strong
O-Toro is great for sushi, tapas and wine/cocktails. Everything is tasty and there's plenty of variety in choices. Ambience is adult with mood lighting. Service needs some works with wine knowledge or else the menu needs an actual description of the wine. The wine flights are a great option.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delicious food item. Knowledgeable
Delicious food item. Knowledgeable staff members. Tapas comes out almost immediately with sushi taking long due to volume. Daily specials you can't beat.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Never lets you down.
Love Love Otoro.. Food is wonderful. Wine list changes and is always good. The tapas asian style menu items are delicious- both the filet plates are amazing. The mushroom flatbread is a must! and the sushi is delicious! The sunflower roll- Heaven!
