Loved it and can't wait to go back. The Flamenco dancer was beautiful, the food outstanding, and the service prompt!

If I could suggest something would be that I would have loved to hear more Spanish music (e.g. Flamenco, classical Spanish guitar, etc.) as they mostly played salsa, merengue, cumbia, etc.

Tapa Toro was fantastic all around. The service was great. The food was amazing. We sat at the Paella bar and watched the paella being made. We shared a delicious pitcher of sangria and multiple tapas and the dessert trio. The Valencia cream and churros were particularly good. Wish We lived closer so we could enjoy more often!

The ham croquettes and meatballs were salty. My server never offered refills on my soda. She took a long time to greet us and take our order.

Does the entree include bread? If yes, I never got mine. I f not, disregard this comment.

We had a fun time and our server was very engaging. The live dancing every hour was an enjoyable addition. We sat in the front enclosed glass semi-circle and liked the feel of the room more than the larger back dining area. Food, wine and overall experience was a nice way to share the night with friends.

There were 3 of us and we just ordered a lot of tapas and shared them all. Most of the ones our server recommended were fabulous! Unfortunately there was a private party that booked the entire bar, so we couldnt sit there and instead were all jammed into the dining area. But, the food was good and we'd definitely eat there again!

It was our first time in Tapa Toro and our waitress Maria was awesome. She explained the menu to us and recommended some of her favorites too. We very much liked the ambiance and decor which made us feel in Spain. The food was delish! That paella was too die for and the prices were very fair. Honestly I expected to pay more for what we ate and drank. Loved it, had a great time and the flamenco lady was really fun too.

restaurant amid I-dr crowds of tourists. compare to my own noshing across Iberia way-back-when; kitchen flavoring, prep and plating were easy to digest. Table atnd Hector menu spiel, and server teams timing for prepping table for next courses, quite good execution. good experience overall including valet interactions. however, not on short list while so many excellent possibilities await. Orlando so much more than I-dr and Disney Bubble. disclosure - decade mystery diner for Darden, focus on service and ambiance.

Fun vibe and wonderful food. The $35 tasting menu with wine pairing - fantastic and good value. IMO - best seat is at the curved Paella chef's area. Service is excellent. GIANNA is awesome - she knows everything about the menu and took care of all the details. As for the vibe - well, you'll feel it. Go and see what I mean. The word you might struggle to remember is "Castagnettes" but now that you know, you'll impress your friends! ;)

Was looking for a unique and romantic place for a double date. Walked in and was greeted right away. The place was very nice and romantic. I made a reservation on open table because it’s always busy but we were only the second table there. I was like yesssss not too noisy for our date. First we started with pork belly and it was amazing!!! Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It worked well with apple sauce and arugula salad. Then of course I have to order paella... why?! Because that what they are known for, but it takes 40 mins. I didn’t mind because our server informed us ahead of time. My first bite was not to my liking because the seafood was beyond well. The mussels was a size of a pea and the shrimp was a size of a quarter and the squid was basically rubbery. Very disappointed for a $45 paella and this is what they are known for. The person in charge did come out and asked what can he do for us but we are not there to get free food we just want amazing food. Our server was amazing!!! She was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu.

A little overpriced. Funny, how the Flamenco dancer did not approach my table. My wife and I were celebrating our 30th Anniversary. We felt discriminated by the dancer, she did approach another table with younger customers! Also, the waitress was nice, but did NOT established any conversation with us.
