    We arrived at 7pm for our reservation. Shaun seated us and waited on us. He was outstanding. He recommended few items for us and we took his advice. Everything was excellent. We had the beet salad, chorizo wrapped dates, iberian ham, ceviche, pork belly, grilled octopus, croquetas, and rack of lamb for our entree. There was enough food for all 4 of us. We also had 2 mocktails and Sangria. Great touch was Shaun took it upon himself to make me a birthday plate with scoop of whipcream and wrote Happy Birthday on it. The next table of ladies were also celebrating birthday. The Flamenco dancer was a great bonus, she was fantastic. We watched the 7pm and 9pm session. The restaurant was quiet since it was Monday night but it was perfect for us. The food portions were generous and the taste was excellent. We recently went to Spain and missed the food so as we visiting Orlando, we purposely wanted Spanish food and so happy we found this place. The staff was outstanding. The food is just as tasteful as in Spain. We had a great time.

    For the price, the portions were incredibly small and we had to send our order back because it was cold the first time it came out. Will not return. The first time we went, we had a great time. Great menu, great entertainment, great service. But they change the menu and it's just not the same place.

    The experience was horrible for us. The server was great. The reason for the 3 star on the service is because there was NO hand soap in the bathroom. What restaurant doesn’t have hand soap! Further, not only were the soap dispensers empty but there was a 3rd empty hand soap just sitting on the counter. How long does it take to go through 3 hand soap bottles? That’s straight up neglect and poor service. No AC? In Florida? Insane! The pork belly was horrible as well. The fat was not rendered out and it was not crispy. It was just fat. Overall, we won’t be back. The flamenco dancing was entertaining. That’s it!

    This is my second time at Tapa Toro, and my experience was better than the first time. I invited my nephews and my niece. The food was absolutely delicious, freshly made, and the portions were big. We ordered the seafood paella with several cold and hot tapas, and a bottle of Tempranillo wine. All were delicious. The service was outstanding. Our waitress paid a lot of attention to details, which enhanced our experience at the restaurant. And, of course, the flamenco show did not disappoint either. I was able to dance Sevillanas with her. Lots of fun! I’m planning on coming back with my family on May.

    We expected a more energetic and vibrant New Year's celebration countdown. The Champagne tasted like water and sugar with bubbles. Not sure we would return based on what we paid and value of the overall experience. Our server was very friendly and I could see how hard they were all working. Only one Flamenco dancer?

    Entree didn't arrive until 11:30 pm. Steak overcooked bland . Lobster no butter, salt, garlic or lemon no taste. Mediocre tapas and not all of them arrived. There was no Flamenco show! There was a woman who danced with Flamenco music a total of 15 to 20 minutes. Everyone was complaining about food, service etc. I believe they were overwhelmed , bad planning.

    This was our 2nd year at Tapas Toro and it was disappointing. The food was not of quality, it arrived cold at the table. Everything was completely different from last year but the price was the same. There was no production. The music was disappointing.. Christopher was our waiter and he was attentive and pleasant.

    This was the absolute worst New Year’s Eve experience ever. After paying almost $1000 for our party of 7, we spent the night having to chase the staff for service. The dirty dishes were not removed in a timely fashion, they would pile up. The only time the waiters cared to come by the tables were if you were purchasing drinks, never to offer water refills and they were dismissive and seemed annoyed by the guests, but to top it all off, from the 5 course meal, the only dish worth eating was the cold tapas and the salad, the hot tapas tasted like frozen food. The worst part of the night was that it was past midnight and we still had not received our entree after sitting there since 9pm and then when it was about to strike midnight, the table next to us had to alert the waitress because they had not distributed any of the hats or whistles for the celebration and one of the guests decided to host the countdown for everyone in our section of the restaurant as no one from the staff was around. Total disgrace and waste of money. The female manager on site was no help, she was rude and seemed bothered by the multitude of complaints from all the tables. I would NOT recommend!

    Came here for New Years with my family. Flamenco show was not much of a show. And the service and food was absolutely terrible. Food was bland and food was ice cold when served. People were getting up and walking out. Multiple complains that night. Do not recommend, especially not for a special occasion- they are just going to ruin it.

    Wei use to love Tapa Toro, but under new ownership…. They changed menu despite on the website still the old one…. From a complete dinning menus, now only a few options. The amazing paella is something in the past…. Now it’s only rice topped with frozen seafood barely cooked. Dishes are so small that imposible to not throw food out off the plate. Servers don’t know what to do…. And of course price are a lot higher!!!! Please if you are one like us who use to love this spot, don’t go, just keep with your remembers!!!!

    The Flan was fantastic. The rest of the food was so-so. The Patatas Bravas was just too Tomoatoey. The Chorizo wrapped dates were good. The grilled Octopus had the right texture but lacking the smokeyness. The staff were great.

    This restaurant is in transition with new ownership. Moving away from Spanish cuisine. Menu on website does not match menu at restaurant. For example, filet mignon is on website but not on site menu. White anchovy app was on website but not at restaurant. Food was good but we made an Open Table reservation and was put at a table with no tableware and waited 15 minutes before we flagged down a waitress. Staff seemed confused.

    The tapas were very good, we had the octopus, cerviche, arancini and ham. The lamb chop was ok. The seafood paella was not very good - didn’t seem to have any saffron taste or color, seafood was ok. Flamenco was also not great, one woman for maybe 10 min.

    Service was slow even though there were barely any customers. My first drink had a bug in it .. my friends drink was put in a dirty glass.appetizers came out but they forgot to send out my entree . I ended up cancelling it . We kept having to flag over the hostess because our server wasn't coming to refill our endless drinks. Overall I will not go back to this place and realized now why they were so empty.

    Makes a great effort to experience true Spanish dining, but falls short across the board. Paella was burnt and not much flavor, where it should be full of saffron and seafood! Performers did look authentic from afar, but they did not cover the entire restaurant, often hidden from view of over 60% of patron. No attention to special occasion, so disappointing overall. Won’t be back.

    The music was way too loud for the amount of people inside. They have a new chef that’s trying to modernize dishes but they didn’t taste that good. Not impressed with the food. The service was good, our waiter was the best part. We wouldn’t come back, especially with how high the prices are compared to the quality.

    Took my dad for his 70th Birthday so he can enjoy his Seafood Paella. He loved it but the Paella is the only food worth going for. Lamb chops were dry and overcooked, chicken had no flavor. Staff/Servers never knowledge my Dad’s Birthday even though I noted it in the reservation. Now we know our expectations for next time. Paella Only!
