    Alberto was our server. He was very rude towards my girlfriend, not letting her order for herself or allowing us time to even finish our order. I ordered my drink and he assumed that it was for the both of us automatically without asking what she wanted. The whole process of eating here felt rushed because of him. The food was amazing.

    Almost 30 minutes for a non frozen pina colada? Response: Yes because we have only 1 bartender. But the GM is the DJ of the evening? Walked out and there was 3 people behind bar….leave that there for those that understand.

    The food was fantastic. Our server was great. The only downside was the tables were too close together and we were expecting more of a show. We picked the 7pm show (didn't start until 735) and only lasted maybe 5-10 min. But she was great too.

    Tapa ToroResponded on January 12, 2023We will definitely look into the table situation! We are sorry to hear the show was too short. Some of our dancers do perform longer than others. It is always up to that individual dancer.

    Service by Christopher was awesome, the only 5 star of the night. Food was late coming out , cold and even mash potatoes were burnt. Got no champagne glass for the toast and entertainment was non existent. We had celebrated NYE there two years ago and it was why we return cause it was great. I guess this time around the focus was on getting as much people packed in and not caring of the quality of service. Will not attend again!

    Tapa ToroResponded on January 12, 2023We are so sorry to hear this. We will certainly look back at how we held the party a couple years ago and work to improve the event for next year.

    Upon arrival the high chair requested was not at the table, and had to ask twice for it while I held my baby. The chairs in the patio were very uncomfortable. The server did her best with servicing our table but with no help for such a big party it led to drinks arriving late, and food also being served very disorganized. The lobster was over cooked and the steak just came rare (not my preference). The performance was sporadic. Overall the not worth the cost of the event.

    Tapa ToroResponded on January 12, 2023We are very sorry to hear this! It certainly does not sound up to our standard. We will take this feedback to improve on the New Years Eve event for next year.

    It was like a any other ordinary dinner expericie with Flamenco in Tapa y Toro. They should plan a better experience for New Year Eve to make it memorable and valuable. Thet should have a host, add emotion to the the last 5 seconds of the year, a DJ playing better music...at the end of the day it was nothing really special.

    Tapa ToroResponded on January 12, 2023We are very sorry to hear you felt this way about our New Year's Eve party, Alex. We will definitely take this information into account for next years event.

    Book a table of 8 people for the New Years Eve dinner party, it was disorganized and waiter only had 3 tables but looks like it was his first time serving tables. Drinks, appetizers and food was on point at other tables except for our table. We had to go to the bar like 3 times to get drinks as it was taking less time. Main course was filet and lobster tail which was brought to our table around 11:30pm (the steak was medium rare cook, which it was good for me but not everyone eats their steak medium rare) the mashed potatoes had burned taste. It was 11:50pm and every table had their “champagne” and glasses for the midnight toast except for us, we had to look for our waiter again and ask for it, glasses came seconds before ringing the New Year. After expending over $120 per person plus drinks not worth it.

    Tapa ToroResponded on January 12, 2023We are so sorry to hear that this was your experience at our New Years Eve party! We will definitely take this back to our staff and improve next year.

    Tapa Toro is located in an energetic amusement area with a carousel and numerous family events. It is a great family or group destination. There were numerous birthday celebrations underway during our visit. There are Flamenco dancers, top 40 music and staff singing happy birthday throughout the evening. It is a fun place with a touristy vibe. Service is good, the food is reasonably priced and okay but not exceptional. Rice was undercooked in Paella and a little bland.

    Tapa ToroResponded on January 12, 2023We are glad you had fun with us but are sorry to hear the food was not up to our standard,

    My wife and I had dinner tonight at Tapa Toro which was wonderful. The Sangria was delicious, we had a pitcher of the classic red sangria and were tempted to order another. We had an assortment of tapas and each was delicious. A highlight was our server David C. He was very attentive, gave us great recommendations and made sure we were enjoying our dinner, best of all it was genuine!. We are looking forward to going back.

    This was my first time there and it was a really great experience. From our amazing sever, David to the food & drinks and then to the show. Everything was just great. The skirt steak I had was definitely one of the best with how tender and well seasoned it was. Definitely highly recommend visiting this restaurant at least once.

    The show started 20 minutes early so we almost missed it. Portion sizes of tapas are ALL over the place. Some you get a tiny amount and others are full-size app portions. We WAY over ordered and wasted a ton of food as a result. Need to use a more modern way to collect tips for the dancers. No one carries cash any more. Also, it would be nice if dancers could move around the restaurant some instead of just stationary on a square box.

    Tapa ToroResponded on November 15, 2022We apologize for the mix up in time. Yes, some tapas are indeed bigger than others. But anyone can always feel free to ask our servers about portion sizes, as they are very knowledgeable of the menu. The dancers do move around the restaurant at certain points in the show, but if there are not that many people they will stay on one side of the restaurant.
