Great Mexican Food w/ unique twistsThe food and drinks were great at this place. Lobster civiche and talapia tacos were great! I would definitely go back again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but did ask us to leaveAsked us to leave once bill was paid which I didn't love. So if u wanna do quick dinner before show great but if u wanna hang out with friends not great because they will ask you to leave once you pay and they don't care what you think anymore5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Night at ToloacheHad a lovely mother's day dinner here. Finding a good Mexican restuarant that has an authentic taste is very hard to find in the city. Toloache takes everyday Mexican food and elevates it to a high class menu. They refine classics, recreating them yet maintaining their essence. I love everything on this menu and will be eating there again! Oh and the margaritas are delicious!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Always a restaurant we eat at whenever we visit manhattan ! We have been there four times, and each time they remember my extensive food allergies and accommodate me.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mexican Restaurant!This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in NY. Food is consistently amazing (don't go if you expect "TexMex and heavy burritos"), service is always wonderful and the managers work the room like you are visiting their own home! i have taken clients, co-workers (one of my bosses!), family and friends and they all continue to rave about how good it is! a true dining experience, a wonderful night out (or lunch or brunch!)5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice place for pre-theatreThis was a very nice and lively place for pre-theatre dinner and drinks; very good food - and a wonderfully cheery and helpful server.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed the food, albeitI enjoyed the food, albeit small portions. The place was hopping and atmosphere very festive as it was Cinco de Mayo and crowded.
Mexican motif added to the ambiance and menu, albeit somewhat limited, was a good cross section of Mexican options. Tacos de Carne Asada were delicious.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMcinco de mayowhere else would one want to be but here? We had a great time, the servers were a little overwhelmed at first, then it settled down. We loved the Mariachis too.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCinco de mayoWent for dinner on may 5 th and the food was amazing. Probably the best Mexican I've had to date. Steak tacos and lobster tacos were wonderful. Especially the steak. The spicy guac was so good and the short ribs were as tender and flavorful as you can get. Even the quinoa was awesome. Service was a little slow but it was a holiday. The waitress was so nice5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Guac in NYCYou must AT LEAST order the rojo guacamole (it's the spicy one, but it's not too spicy). If you have a party of at least 4 people, order the trio of guac (three different varieties). At $21, it might sound pricey for an appetizer, but it is so worth it. I say at least 4 people because if you have fewer, you will all fill up on the guacamole and won't have any room for your meal. And sit on the ground level so you can watch the ladies making the guac from scratch. (People think it's great when they pull the cart up to your table at Rosa Mexicano to mash the avocados right in front of you, but that's over priced and this guac is better.)
After that, my go-to is the fish tacos. They are the best I've had in the Northeast.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTried Toloache -Midtown forTried Toloache -Midtown for the first time and would definately go back. It had a fun and friendly vibe and the food was outstanding. My husband loved his tortilla soup and short rib tacos. I had skirt steak and an awesome sangria. The service was fast and the wait staff friendly and helpful.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPre TheaterOne of the best pre theater restaurants I have visted. Very crowded, but service was still very attentive & hte quality of the food was very good.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, but noisyMy second visit to Toloache was as rewarding as my first. It remains a favorite. I only wish the noise level were lower. I really hate shouting at the person across the table.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelilshExcellent food through and through, no matter which dish I try.
It was excessively noisy but I accidentally visited on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
That was my ONLY complaint.
Excellent tequila list and inventive variations on the classic margarita.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent service, delicious foodWent here for my birthday. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. It was a very busy Friday night right before Cinco de Mayo and they were still very attentive. The portions are on the small side, but it was enough food--and the dishes were unique and very tasteful. It is a bit tight to sit downstairs, but I'd def go again. We got there at 6:30 and they could easily get us out by an 8 pm show.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent but priceyA bit pricey but worth it! Excellent food and outstanding service.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite resaurant!This is my favorite NY restaurant hands down!!! It's always packed (ususally with the theather crowd) and you have to reserve in advance to get in but ...the food and service is amazing! And they margaritas and wine list are great too.

Service was outstanding!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the best place inThis is the best place in the neighborhood. Slightly off the beaten path, but well worth walking the extra block to avoid the crowd of tourists. Incredible food. Don't skip the Guacamole or Sangria.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat mexican restaurant!great mexican restaurant! service was great, and the food was too, although as other diners have written, the portions were very small. The guacamole was excellent, and at my table we had the paella, the shrimp quesadilla, and the enchiladas. We ordered side order of rice and black beans - 2 - and 1 would have been plenty - that is the one thing that was plentiful. Really good 'skinny' margarita.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMQuesadilla w/Truffle, CornQuesadilla w/Truffle, Corn w/Cotija, Grilled Tilapia Tacos are just a few of our favorites that we order each time we go to Toloache during our annual visit to NYC. This is a must-dine stop during each of our visits to NYC. Though it's located in the theater district, Toloache is a delicious destination whether or not you are going to the theater. ...and keep the margaritas and guacamole coming! Can't wait to go back!!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMClose to a "5" but a few pointsClose to a "5" but a few points off for portion sizes (a tad small) and noise level (we were seated next to the kitchen and guacamole preparation area). We made an early pre-theatre reservation and had plenty of time to savor a bottle of wine, our meal, coffee and dessert. Food is excellent and nicely presented; really appreciate that there are numerous vegetarian options. Highly recommend the Spicy Guacamole; (could have made a meal of that alone) and the dessert sampler. Nice, reasonably priced wine list. Great to find a quality, interesting Mexican choice in the theatre district; location can't be beat. Great waiter; treated us to post-coffee tequila that was unique and delicious. Will definitely return and highly recommend!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early, IT was packedWe arrived early, IT was packed and we decided not to wait for our table and sat at the bar instead. The vibe was fun, seating is tight.
Mango Mojito – delicious, Sangria- Fresh fruit was added to red wine and fruit juice. We shared Apps and the Paella for dinner.Chips with fresh guacamole-very good
JM Hamachi -Yellowtail, meyer lemon, cucumber, huichol salsa, crispy avocado – fantastic
De Lechon -Suckling pig carnitas, cactus salad, salsa verde - (2) small taco shells stuffed with the perfect combination of crunchy pork skin and moist pork meat. Next time I will get the dinner portion it was so amazing.
Tumbada paella- epazote-scented rice, chicken, chorizo, shrimp, tilapia, clams, octopus. Very fresh and the rice favorful. So Good!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe place and food was great.The place and food was great. But, it is a little cramped.

The guacamole was perfection and the small plates were great for sharing and as a main course per-theater.Service was very good, informative. Chef's specialty quesadilla was delicious. Excellent seasoning on carne asada attractive plating. Would definitely return4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place.If you like Mexican, you will love this place. I've been here about 8 times, usually with a small group, and no one has ever been disappointed. They have really nice specialty margaritas, my favorite is one made with jalapenos and cucumber with a spicy chili salt rimming the glass. It's all good, but the guacamole sampler (3 different kinds) is a must (obviously if you like guac,) also the fish tacos and the carne asado are off the hook. The staff is also really considerate about getting you through your meal on time if you are going to see a show, but they won't hurry you if you don't.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGuacamole was AMAZING!!!!Guacamole was AMAZING!!!! Loved the Maragritas! Service was terrific!

They were very accommodating to very handicapped mom in wheelchair. I love all of their dishes.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & Drink, speed eatingWent on Saturday night with 2 friends. Place was packed and lively. No problem getting seated right away. In terms of getting our orders taken, and drinks served, right away, it was fast and efficient. The food came so quickly, we have hardly taken a bite from our appetizers. Our waiter seemed intent to take our plates away from us before we could even eat. So, I would say that the only downside to the meal was that we were absolutely rushed through our dinner. I know that they were trying to turn over tables, but 75 minutes from drinks through dessert felt pressured. Other than that - a wonderful experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been here several times.I've been here several times. Always very good! The guacamole was on the salty side tonight, but usually spot on.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience. GreatWonderful experience. Great place to celebrate a birthday.
