    One of the worst dining experiences in my life. The food was subpar and there was flamenco dancing to the loudest music that was impossible to speak or hear over. We tried to suggest they turn the music down but was told “it will end soon” we would have enjoyed the dancing had the music been at a reasonable level. Also, I believe they sell cigars and the smoke was awful from other patrons smoking. It was wafting into the restaurant and for those sensitive to smoke it was extremely difficult to enjoy the subpar meal.

    Tapa ToroResponded 6 days ago

    Ashley, Very sorry to hear that this was your experience. Usually there are not complaints about the flamenco music being too loud, so I will definitely pass this along to the team. And will discuss with them about closing the doors if people are outside smoking cigars.

    Excellent selection with wide variety on menu, service was awesome, prices are moderate to low, recommend their house sampler platter, food was excellent for both taste and portions, coffee was perfect, great family location for a reasonable priced excellent meal in the tourist area - which is hard to find

    Let me start by saying that the food was wonderful along with our server. The show or lack of was very disappointing. I tried to make a reservation for 7pm or 6:30pm but those times were unavailable so I made a reservation for 6pm. As 6:30 and 7pm approached I noticed that more than three quarters of the establishment was empty so I wondered why there were no reservations available for 6:30 and 7pm? When 7pm approached the show did not start. At 7:20pm we inquired about the show and we were informed in about 5 to 10 minutes. We saw some of the entertainers setting out tip boxes by this time but still did not start the show. That time passed and still no start. By 7:45pm still no show but we were informed again that it would be in another 5 to 10 minutes and were offered seats closer to the show. We declined that offer because we had been at the restaurant since 6pm and the show was now going to start closer to 8pm. If we new what we know now the reservation I made would have been made differently if that was possible. Overall experience was very disappointing for a restaurant that states it has a show that starts at 7pm. We did want to experience the show with our meal as we had relatives in town visiting from another country. Do not state on your website that you have a show at 7pm when you do not.

    Tapa ToroResponded 6 days ago

    Rich, I am sorry that you did not get to see the entertainment. Typically the show does start at 7pm but we ran into some difficulties and apologize for that. I'm glad to hear the food and service was wonderful, though.

    Totally disappointed. Food was mild. The server, Geselli, was great, she went above and beyond and was very helpful. The kitchen didn’t help her though. Not recommended at all. This isn’t Spanish food; clearly, there is no Spanish chef behind. They just copied an Spanish menu and did what they could. The outcome is (very) bad.

    Sorry to hear you were disappointed, Juan. We will share this with the team.

    The food was ok at best. Went for Mother’s Day brunch. For $56 I ate a plate of seafood Paella and a piece of prime rib. The macaroni and mashed potatoes were inedible. The waffles were too sweet. The eggs were tasteless. I could go on and on but I’ll stop here. I won’t be going back.

    Put next to the bathroom entrance was not the best spot and it seemed like we were the last thing on the waitresses mind. The food was doable not too much on the flavor side and seemed overpriced for it. Kinda just paying a lot cause of location. But maybe the next person would enjoy it more.

    Great food and good service (could be a bit more attentive). Noise level however is out of control... We couldn't hear a word when speaking due to the very loud speakers all over the restaurant. That being said we didn't expect a library atmosphere when coming in and it was a good overall experience.

    Family Style dinner was simply delicious. Place was hopping. At least six birthdays while we were dining. Huge portions, we couldn't come close to finishing meal for 4 with 5 of us eating. Pablo was the best server we had in an entire week of traveling around Florida!!! Very friendly and informative, just the right amount of attention. Entertainment was lively and fun. Simply a great time!!

    I highly recommend Tapa Toro for delicious tapas and excellent service. My favorite Tapa was Datiles con Tocino and the specialty drink I recommend is Paloma de Majorca. Be sure to save room for the very delicious flan! The bonus flamenco dancer adds a bit of flare to the experience. You will be very happy with an evening spent there!

    Upon our arrival we were not acknowledged for about 10 minutes until I finally stopped one of the many waitresses who passed us to ask how we should check in for our reservation, she pointed to a host table where no-one was and continued to walk away from me. We then were seated and not one server acknowledged us once again for about another 15 minutes, not even water was brought to the table and they weren’t even that busy! We finally get food, and what for, Food was not good! We have the octopus, lamb, cesear salad, and mashed potatoes and left it all on the table. Paid a $150 bill and still tipped server $30 just because. Definitely would not return.

    Another fantastic meal here. We dined inside this time and there was a flamenco dancer who was very good and lively. Chicken and Lamb Paella didn’t disappoint. Really good and we had an appetiser of ham croquettes too. Our server Roger was very good and remembered us from our last visit. Attentive and friendly but not over the top, kept us informed of paella progress and kept drinks topped up. Would definitely recommend.

    We went in at about 5:20 on a Thursday evening, we had a reservation but there was plenty of seating available. Waitstaff was awesome, the food was great too. Shout out to Maria our server, who was friendly and made great recommendations. The tapas seemed a little pricey but to be fair they used some premium ingredients. This was my first time having paella and it was exactly what I hoped for. I’d definitely go back.
