Great spot for a date night! You get the hustle and bustle of Icon Park and a cute spot for dinner. The Flamenco dancing was really great and such a different piece of entertainment than you usually get. My husband has lots of food allergies and was able to eat here no problem.

Food is good. Cocktails good as well. We shared a few tapas. Chorizo Dates, delicious yet not spicy. Lamb sliders, good but not amazing. Ceviche, very good. Calamari, good. Octopus, good flavor but a bit too chewy. We went in the middle of the day. Surrounding area is busy as it is where the Eye and other activities and restaurants are. Inside is nice, music is a bit to loud. Service was good and our server was friendly.

It was our first time visiting and “The paella” was so bad, extremely salty to the point we weren’t able to eat absolutely nothing. My wife’s plate came out 17 minutes before mine. The waitress was embarrassed she kept apologizing we knew is not under her control of what happens in the kitchen and she knew we weren’t happy at all. So she voluntarily removed the paella’s from the ticket. The show was really good.

The only major issue I had was my child’s food was forgotten and he did not receive his meal until after the family was done eating. For my other child his fries came 10 minutes before his sliders so he had to eat his food separate. I think my server could not handle a busy holiday dinner. I did tell her my son has been wait 22 minutes for his CHICKEN TENDERS and that I was extremely pist off about this. Other than this it was good food and good ambiance.

Had very nice experiences for New Year Eve. Food was good, but not great. Lobster was over cooked. Steak was tasty. Tapas were ok. Our waiter was very friendly and fast with our requests. Flamenco dancers were very professional and belly dancer was great! The DJ choice of music for New Year night should be better for sure. Overall had great time.

This was the worse dinner experience ever. We went there for New Year’s Eve. They offered a special package that included a five course meal over three hours from 9-12 with a champagne toast to ring in the New Year. The noise level was so high it created a clubbing atmosphere instead of a restaurant. The place was packed. The dancers were beautiful but they were brought out too early in the evening just when the guests were still arriving and getting situated so there was a lot of chaos. The tapas were strewn on the tables when we arrived so this was two of the five courses that were served before we got there. It did not look appetizing. The salad was soggy. It look like it sat for a while. Before we could finish those two courses they brought the hot tapas. Before we could finish the hot tapas they brought the steak and lobster entrees. They never asked us how we wanted our steak. They tried to cram the entree plates on the table without clearing the previous three courses. We had to ask them to remove the finished plates so the entree could fit. The steak was over cooked and had no seasoning and no flavor; just a flavorless gravy thrown on top. The lobster was dry and rubbery like it was over cooked and sat. They brought the dessert and gave us our drink bill to pay at 10:15 so it seemed like we were being pushed out the door. What was supposed to be a five course meal spread out over the three hour evening, ending with champagne at midnight, ended up feeling a rushed meal so they could push us out the door and turn over tables. So something didn’t seem right about all of this. We felt so uncomfortable that we left at 10:30 and didn’t wait for the champagne toast. We saw many empty tables on our way out and a line of people waiting outside to come in. We wondered if the empty tables meant those guests felt the same way. This was nothing like the experience they presented. The total cost was $300; the cost for a 5 star experience at 1 star.

Awesome ! Espectacular

Comida maravillosa , ambiente alegre, show de bailadoras maravilloso ! Pedimos tapas y vinos , un empleado de la cocina se acercó y nos preguntó si queríamos probar la paella y fue una cortesía de la casa! Lo recomiendo ampliamente

I went with my husband, we sat at the bar, we were enjoy the preparation of the paellas, we loved the atmosphere, the “bailaoras” make a perfect show every half hour, wine and delicious tapas, a kindly kitchen employee offered us a plate of paella to try as a courtesy of the house, definitely a place to visit again and recommend, good prices! I recommend booking to avoid long waits

We were seated at the bar around the paella cooking area. Loved watching them make the huge pans of paella. Sangria was delicious. Charcuterie board, ham croquettes were very good. Mussels were not my favorite.
Loved the dancers. Overall a great night.

I was very disappointed with the food and drink. I was there a year ago and it was very good. I'm not sure taht happened this time. The margarita was not good. The Seafood Paella was extremely salty and overpowering with what I believe was saffron.

We have been to Tapa Toro twice and liked it both times. The tapas have been excellent in taste, manner of cooking, how they "look". This time the food was way too expensive for the simplistic manner in which it was cooked, the potatoes were dry, the chorizos looked like they had been thrown on a plate, the shrimp was so totally different from the real Spanish gambas al ajillo...etc. I could go on, but suffice it to say it will be a looooong time before we return. It was embarrassing because we had said so many good things about the place, and our guests could not believe the poor (and so not authentic) food...they are Spaniards, so we were truly upset that they had a bad experience.
