Diner Reviews
  • "The waitress gave us a recommendation to get the croquettes and after 1 bite I pushed it aside. The tuna tar tar was good and the veggies but overall I was unimpressed with toro."

  • "Everything was absolutely great !! Maybe a little noisy but that is what makes the special atmosphere I will go back"

  • "Had a fantastic dinner here. The menu offers nice variety. Every dish we had was delicious. Uni bocadillo, the crudo, octopus, lamb blood sausage, home marrow and the blowfish tails (fun and unique). Great service . Our waitress really knew her stuff. She recommended blood sausage and the blowfish tails and we were not disappointed. Fun but casual atmosphere. Looking forward to coming back"

  • "Toro is best Spanish I've had since Spain. Bone marrow is to die for so as many other items on the menu if you're adventurous with your food."

  • "One of the best tapas experiences I have had outside of Spain. The food is incredible, the service was spot on, the place is NOISY. If you like great dining experiences, TORO does not disappoint. I cannot wait to go back."

  • "The food here was awesome, and the menu offers a great variety. Our waiter was super helpful with ordering, and did not pressure us to order more tapas than we could handle. The pace at which the food was brought out was also great. Overall, an awesome date night- I would highly recommend this place!"

  • "Would not return-from the greeting by the snooty receptionist who would give us any table but the one we wanted-preferring to leave the better table empty until 9pm--through to the waiters inattentiveness -- totally disappointed. Cocktails were brought AFTER THE WINE WAS SERVED -- Really? The only good service came from the bus staff, pleasant, smiling & generally congenial. The bill goes up very quickly - if there are an even number in your party, you need to double up on items since they serve 1 toast with the tuna belly for example or 3 squash blossoms, for example. So much nicer when a restaurant offers to put 4 items for a small supplemental fee rather than forcing the double order. Four of us easily spent $600 without much thought."

  • "This place is great in Boston but it was not good here. The place was empty and our waiter was horrible."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The service was impeccable- the food was delicious -- a bit too loud for conversation even with only one other. Very impressed with servers attentiveness to an allergy at our table. Wine and most food was amazing. Have already recommended the restaurant to many people! Just turn down the music.. Congratulations on a great restaurant in a tricky neighborhood - was well worth the trek"

  • "we were recommended to order 4-6 plates per person, which was obviously way too much. 5-6 TOTAL would have been perfect. so we figure we weren't well advised."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The noise was extremely high, we couldn't talk. Service perfect, wine delicious, Jamon and bread also delicious. Paella very very bad! Toasted!!!!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Fabulous tapas menu, creative and delicious, great meat packing loft style space, hip crowd, all right on. Service, though a disaster, rushed asked 3 times for our order, had been seated 15 min with extensive menu then couldn't find server the rest of the night. Empty wine glasses, no help whatsoever, at top tier prices. Check for two close to $300!"

  • "Octopus was world class. Dessert was magnificent. Staff at the door could lose the attitude."

  • "Excellent food. Very nice, airy, and sunny setting. The music was entirely too loud."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Trendy in many ways- (good) foods, (young) décor, (super trendy) location, and this one is not like NY but very friendly service which is a gen in NY!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had a great time Friday! I would recommend it to anyone who ever asked me! I will definitely be returning as I did not have enough room to try everything I wanted, and I think the menu changes somewhat regularly."

  • "Came early and seated immediately. All service was great. Ordered 6 dishes to share and the first two were very oversalted/close to push away and pass on, but we didn't. Ham and pig face fritters were chopped too fine and there was no distinctive taste to it, sort of a coated and deep fried undefined ball. Abalone dish was cooked perfect but again overpowered by topping. The abalone itself was delicious and cooked perfectly. I love sweetbreads and couldn't pass on the crispy offering. It came drowned in a sweet sauce and tasting the sweetbreads wasn't possible. The lobster, sea urchin, and parsnip was a standout, not over salt or sweet and every taste came thru. Overall I'd say pass on this well touted restaurant."

  • "Toro has in my opinion cemented themselves as the preeminent Spanish restaurant in NYC. The food is innovative and delicious. The service is excellent and knowledgeable."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "What a mistake. This is not fine dining, it's a pickup spot for the bridge and tunnel crowd. Deafeningly loud accented by frequent screaming . Average food thrown at you haphazardly . We were warned the paella would take 40 minuets and ordered 4 small plates to start . The paella came out in 15 before any appetizers bland and burned to the pan. The other plates came with long spells of time between , none but the salad very memorable. And the server never ordered our White Sardines which we waited patiently for but left without . Our server tried appeasing us by topping off our wine and a free dessert wine but could be plainly seen drinking between the infrequent visits to our table. Our complements to the bus staff who were most efficient."

  • "All the food was remarkable, and they present it in such an artfull manner. Just a delight."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Couldn't be more pleased with our experience! Each dish that came out was better than the next. The white Sangria was off the charts and since it was rather busy and our entree took a while to come out they gave us a free round of drinks while we waited and we weren't even complaining! That is good business right there. These managers know how to run a place, need more of this in NYC. Just wish there was a big building obstructing their view of the water!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "It wasn't my first time there but it will be my last. I always come back becuase food is great but no more. Last time they said it's an hour wait I waited 2 hours and 5 minutes. Thus time I had reservations. We sat right away but the waitress was very flaky. The appetizers came wSy after we already finished the main courses. Some came only when we mentioned and some never showed at our table but we were still billed for them. They never tried to make it up Tonys or anything, i was so ashamed I booked this place for such an important business dinner. Never again! "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "so loud we couldn't hear each other, the food - such as there was - was slow in coming, each tapa was minuscule,the wine was mediocre - in fact, I would say it was the worst dining experience I have had in a very long time. the only good thing is that it gives us and our friends something to laugh about. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Was unsure if it would be super loud being on the highway and all, but nope, it was really nice and great place for a group dinner! Really nice atmosphere and really enjoyed most of the plates. Some things though were way over salted. I would definitely come back."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We went...two 60 something gals who eat out all the time, both with girl friends, husbands, grown kids etc we loved the food, but will never return as the noise level is soooo bad it spoiled the whole evening oh well, another restaurant where they only want 20 or 30 somethings too bad"

  • "Excellent lobster paella and cauliflower/kolhrabi tapas dish. Portions were overall on the small side for the price point."

  • "It was an unusual dining experience with rap music and the servers drinking ( what seemed to be a tasting table for the new wines) was a odd sighting. A lot of hits but a few misses. The sweetbreads was over powered by the hoisin sauce...shame! Ill go back for sure! The paella was a true hit reminded me of Spain but ( understandable for the area) was pricey.Deviled Eggs Rocked"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Food was exciting and unlike anything I have had elsewhere. Everything was prepared to perfection, but at the same time was not exactly what I expected. Service was impeccable, everything came out in a timely fashion. The bar was alittle slow, but the drinks were still great once we got them. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Although the food was great and the service excellent, the restaurant is rather pricey."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I love small splate dining and Toro had some exceptional dishes. My favorites were the two tuna tapas: the ceviche and the tartar. The octopus was also awesome, as well as the cauliflower. The only thing I didn't like was the corn and usually that is my favorite. It had way too much aioli on it which was light on taste. I prefer no aioli and more cotija! The white and red sangrias were also exceptional. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Hostess & wait staff were friendly & informative, answering all our wine questions and happily taking the corn off the cob for the truly yummy Mexican grilled corn (Maiz Asado con Alioli y Queso Cotija). The classic Paella Valenciana for 2 was enough for 4 to share with all our previous tapas and the waiter insisted the best most flavorful part was all the bits stuck to the bottom of the pan - he scrapped a big heap off and damn if he wasn't right! The lemon custard was insanely rich and delicious especially for a group with 2 avowed chocoholics. It's like there's magic and cream cheese and the most perfect tartness mixed in."

  • "Very nice looking restaurant has a cool trendy vibe. Service was great starting with the hosts upfront. Got a great table, food was very good. All he waiters we interacted (different waiters bring the food out) with were friendly. Food was very good. All in all a great experience"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Toro is awesome. Everything from the potatoes to the empanadas are great, but nothing beats the corn. It is to die for. "

  • "Impressed with the food. cuttlefish, tuna crudo, duck drumsticks, all were terrific. but the ribeye steak (for $90 btw) was awful. I'm not a chef, but the steak I grill in my backyard would crush it."

  • "So I've been to the toro in Boston a few years ago and had fond memories. When I heard about the new york one I was interested. I came here for a very late dinner on a Friday night and sat at the bar in the back. Every bite of food had so much flavor. I was with a friend and we shared the lamb with snails, the octopus, prawns and some tomato toast thing that was surprisingly delicious. It's nice for a special occasion, a little pricey than what I would normally do for dinner out but so worth it. Def would come back and recommend it for a special occasion dinner. Also go with a couple friends so that you can order lots of dishes!"
