I was taken here for my birthday - I will say, the overall aesthetic was really neat, and the bar/food selection was eclectic; however, the noise (music) level was outrageous. As I sat there, trying to hear people inches across the table, I felt nauseated and disoriented because of how sensitive I am to loud noise. If management could perhaps consider a time/disclaimer that informs guests that the restaurant becomes a full-blown club after a certain time, it might help people better plan to avoid something they don’t intend to encounter while trying to enjoy a normal family dinner.

Our waitress was great! She actually seemed over worked and was trying hard to treat us as best. However, after years of going to Toca and knowing the service, the hostess was not quiet welcoming even though I had a reservation. I understand I was a bit late but the first impression was not at its best. A positive/welcoming attitude was lacking...

The food was great and I’ll continue going as it’s one of my favorite local spots. Thank you TOCA TEAM!

The restaurant is too split. If you’re not sitting in the front it’s not fun and not worth it. Whole place needs to be remodeled

The food was soooooo bad... not sure what changed I don’t remember it being this bad. I brought a girlfriend here for a celebration sure of the quality that I have experienced at Toca Modera in the past, and I was slightly embarrassed for hyping it up the way I did. Not sure if it was a fluke but if you’re trying to go here solely for ambiance then sure, but for a good meal.... this is a no go.

My experience was amazing , as usual. The food was amazing, and the ambiance was just beautiful. My server was a tad slow (staffing could have been short), but was very nice and professional as well.

Had I known that we’d be seated outside in the cold I wouldn’t have dined here. It was cold sitting outside in then suddenly upon getting check we were rushed out the door. Tables that were seated prior to us and same time we were seated continued dining but we were hurried out the door. $300 later I’ve now left the restaurant and am now on my way to find another establishment to dine and have drinks. Very disappointed in this dining experience.

Had to beg for bottled water .. Beg for food our server was sweet, but very overwhelmed. Even with a serving assistant it was terrible service. My boyfriend hated it. The front desk outside was kind, inside very rude. Condensing LA vibe. The food was mediocre. Overall it’s just another overhyped LA restaurant.

Poor service
Ordered drinks upon arrival and it took over 15 minutes
Server didn’t show up for over 20 minutes after food delivered to table. Had to ask someone walking by to get another drink eventually. Took 20 minutes ugg

Hostess that day was not very friendly, we requested outside reservations were made in advance and they sat us inside. When we asked all she said was it was not open until the evening but no one called us to let us know or even when I checked in and we saw a few parties sitting outside. Server was good at recommendations she did forget about us for about 15-20 min but she caught herself and apologized. FOOD WAS AMAZING and the presentation was beautiful for every item we ordered. Drinks were also amazing my favorite was the prickly pear margarita.

To start, host staff were unfriendly and didn’t greet our party. Just stared at me until I spoke. Very slow service, took a long time to have our order taken, wait for dessert, wait for check, etc. We were not given utensils or napkins until we had to ask AFTER our apps had arrived. Cocktails and water kept being sloppily dropped and spilled on the table, which actually caused my glass to crack. Coffee arrived close to room temp and with a good chunk spilled on the saucer lol. Our server didn’t check on us, and our waters were refilled only when I randomly flagged someone down.

While the 1.5 hour table limit was fine for our party of 6, it was improbable due to the slow service. Around 1hr 40 minutes, we were literally paying the check on our device and a blonde female manager tells us she needs the table. I then tried to inform her why we went 10 minutes over the time limit (due to slow service, didn’t mention all the other details), and she said, “oh, unfortunately that’s just our time limit.” No apology, no further inquiry about our experience. It was off-putting and quite rude.

The food was good; poke and enchiladas were definite standouts.

We had reservations at 5:00 pm. We were there earlier at 4:50, but not seated until 5:30 ish
Once seated, they told us we can only have the table for 1.5 hour
The service is horrible

And the churros is also horrible, cold and old

Went for my birthday it was super nice and the food was delicious it is a loud environment good for birthday vibes but very worth it. Our waiter was so nice and so helpful. I will definitely be be going again. The alcohol drinks are super cute and worth it they are not stingy with the alcohol 👍🏼

We had a reservation and we waited for a long time. We were seated at the back and the server was super busy ( I actually feel bad for her, she was great) I think they’re understaffed. We waited for our drinks which took a long time and we’re only able to order the appetizers. I think if understaffed, they shouldn’t open more tables. It’s my first time having the bad experience. I’ve been at Toca Madeira several times with friends and I had a great experience except today. :(
