A word from Toro Toro
Located at 100 Chopin Plaza, Toro Toro is celebrated chef/restaurateur Richard Sandoval’s creative Pan-Latin interpretation of a contemporary steakhouse. This sophisticated and sexy concept is modeled after Sandoval’s Dubai Toro Toro, which was named “Best Latin” and “Best New Restaurant” by Time Out. The restaurant’s selection of meats, carved tableside rodizio-style, along with an array of small plates, composed main-plates and a la carte steaks draws foodies while Toro Toro’s buzz-worthy bar, emphasizing Latin-inspired cocktails made with ultra-premium Latin spirits and a well-curated collection of fine wines from around the world, draws the cocktail crowd.

    This place is just fantastic. The food, the people, the vibe... Toro Toro is by far the best experience in Miami. As an obsessed foodie, I have only one word for you...TT stands for TOTALLY TERRIFIC! We were greeted by an awesome receptionist who had a big smile on her face... Not only her, but all the staff seems to have this energy.... Did I say energy! Go see and ask for the wing man, the super star of our experience, Carlos Garcia. What a gentleman, kindness and professionalism... I kept my promise to him and my wife and I are so happy to be leaving this comment for Carlos and his kind staff at Toro Toro. I've had the Tomahawk and my wife had the Seabass... If you like sea bass, go to TT to absolutely Love it ! Ive also had a cocktail which was prepared by the tall gentleman at the bar.. As per my wife, the ''Good Looking'' fellow. He made me a Drink called '' ring my bell'' great job ''Good Looking man '' I absolutely loved it. Long story short... Must see, must Eat, must must experience... I'll be back! GRACIAS!

    From the minute we walked in, we were treated with fantastic service. Our waiter, Orlando, was extremely helpful in guiding us through the menu as we were first-timers. The amazing prime tomahawk ribeye he recommended was the best steak we've ever had--flawlessly seasoned, cooked, and sliced tableside for a perfect presentation. The churros for dessert also far surpassed any we've ever had--incredibly light with a delicious dark chocolate sauce. Considering my husband's family is from Spain, and we've spent a lot of time there, the bar was set high. These churros passed it with flying colors! Beyond the food, this is a restaurant that truly cares about its customers. I broke the heel to my shoe on the way into the restaurant. Not only did the assistant general manager, Carlos Garcia, find me some super glue, he came tableside to fix it himself! Thank you, Toro Toro, for a wonderful evening!

    Great food, delicious drinks and impeccable service made our experience one to remember. Even with a completely full bar, bartenders Alina, Pedro and Erica were totally on point! Carlos, the manager, was not only incredibly accommodating, but also had us rolling on the floor because of high energy and eccentric personality. Overall, this was a great experience and we'll definitely be coming back!!

    Restaurant is located in Intercontinental Hotel in Miami, and both are offer a great atmosphere. Service was great, and food was great as well. As with other upscale restaurants, the dishes were not cheap, but they were not exorbitantly priced as well. Highly recommend this restaurant for those looking for a a great food experience.

Our waiter was also exceptional, very frendly. The hotel has been newly renovated and beautifully done with much taste. I would go back anytime. You will enjoy both the atmosphere, food and the entire experience. If you are in Miami, please stop by the restaurant you will not regret it.

    By far, the best of our experience was the service. Everyone was so amicable and helpful... However, the place is very noisy, and also, there was too much food smell going on... Maybe some of the filters or air extractors were not working properly. The food was very very good, and the price seamed reasonable.

    This restaurant has it all...the scene, the food and the great service! You can't beat an atmosphere like that for the prices they offer. Definitely a hidden gem inside the InterContinental Miami, but worth the visit. I suggest the Chicharron de Camarones and the Short Rib Arepas, hands-down the two best small plates on the menu, in my opinion. Great cocktails as well, and an even better selection of desserts. La Bomba is to die for!! A MUST try in Miami, for locals and visitors alike!

We loved the cocktails made by Matt, I had the Ahumado- highly recommended for those who like spicy drinks. We were also warmly welcomed by two servers Ajda and Anais, they were extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made some great suggestions such as the chicharrone de camarones. Great customer service and ambiance, we will definitely be back.

    Toro Toro has it all! The restaurant is owned by celebrity chef, Richard Sandoval. The menu is varied and the food is crazy good!!! Thanks to the rock star chef, Eric, who infuses his Asian background with Sandoval's Mexican dishes. YUM! The bar has some of the most unusual specialty drinks created by the bar manager, Matt Phiilips. When you sit down at the bar, you get Matt's full attention. He will serve you one of his concoctions or create a unique drink especially designed for your individual taste. Try the bar bites. Small dishes that two people can share for about $5 - $7 each. DELICIOUS Toro Toro also has one of the best brunch menus in Miami. I plan to try their brunch, next.

    We were group of 7 so we decided to dine family style, sharing about 8-10 appetizers and then 2 of the meat platters and tomahawk ribeye. Grilled octopus and crispy shrimp were the highlight of the appetizers, and tomahawk was one of the best pieces of meat I have ever had. Passion-fruit pisco sours went great with dinner. Our server Matej provided excellent service. To finish the meal we were served La Bomba, chocolate sphere filled with everything that is good in this world, dropped on the table and then covered with 3 different sauces. Overall, great meal in a nice ambiance with outstanding service.

    Wanted to visit another Richard Sandoval restaurant after dining at Zengo in Denver a few times; found out he had Toro Toro in Miami and went with a friend. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, like ordering multiple small plates to get a taste of different dishes...great atmosphere, waiter disappeared for long lengths of time at a clip so when we needed something had to flag down another, but all in all very nice!
