Excellent food. Modern Mexican cuisine at its best
My date ate all her food lol more than me actually
The food the drinks were awesome! The service was great too I just wished our waitress would’ve told us our dining time was almost up before she offered more drinks. No one wants to chug 15 dollar drinks lol at least I don’t .
Enjoyed the scenery. Accommodating hostess.
Food is good. Service bad.
During the pandemic i wouldn't go back i wish that the seating was set up a little better it felt like you were literally eating on the street. maybe a good divider from the street and the tables would be better just like i seen in other places.
I’ve been here multiple times and every time is amazing. The service is great, the ambiance is unique and really makes the experience enjoyable, and the food is always the best!
Food was amazing but the host was so rude to my family & I. Rolled her eyes when she seated up even told us to wait a hour even tho I had a reservation I made weeks ago
My wife and I came here for my birthday and we were not disappointed. Friendly and professional service and the quality of the food and drinks was outstanding. This was our first time eating here and we will for sure come out here again
90 min table time for dinner of 4 people that haven’t seen each other in a while, is not enough! I understand that it is due to COVID restrictions, but it made our enjoyment less pleasurable. The food and the staff got 5 stars and I hope that, when these restrictions are lifted our experience will have 5 stars all across the board!
No complaints what so ever. I just wish indoor dining was available again although that is not their fault of course. The staff are AMAZING! One of the best in West Hollywood. They were so understanding and were able to accommodate all my needs. I brought my boyfriend out here for his birthday and he loved it. I will definitely come back. The food was so delicious you won’t regret it.
Due to covid19, I would highly recommend one order and pick up to go instead of sitting outdoor. We literally were seated 3 inches from the sidewalk! The traffic noise, fumes made for an unpleasant ambiance! Our tacos were served in foil, the food experience was underwhelming. It was simply not worth the visit and cost at this time. The cocktails were good and service was satisfactory. Just order your food for pick up unless you want to be seated out doors almost on the street!
Food was great, we sat out on the patio. Good date spot as it has dim lighting and cute decor, but for any other occasion the lighting but might be a problem. It was a bit too dark. Other than that, this is a lovely spot and would definitely come back!
Good food & cocktails. A bit pricey but understandable considering restaurants are trying to stay in business right now. They’ve done a good job being creative with limited outdoor space.
Great food, a little loud and dark on the patio but still very much enjoyable.
The food here sucks. Lacks flavor!!
I went during COVID so the outside isn’t as cute as a vibe during normal times. Food was okay, didn’t like drinks at all.
The mole plate was ridiculously salty don't get that, my friends food was great. But the portions are small.
thanks to covid- nothing great
Toca is one of my favorite LA restaurants , my recent experience was different because of COVID it was not comfortable sitting out in the heat . My waiter was not very attentive to our table . I had to constantly ask for refills on my water although other tables were being refilled without even asking
Waited 1 hr after reservation To be sat w my entire party
Food was great and the service amazing. Save room for dessert.
didn’t really honor the rez - was for 715 and sat us at 750
The food and drinks were great but the service was horrible. The hostess was extremely rude and we were constantly reminded that we only had 1 and a half hours, which is ok but it took 30min for anyone to even approach us.
It was loud and ambiance was “poor” because of covid. So I’m not sure if this is a fair review. Waitress (the South African chick) was outstanding and we got along (my friend and I) with her so much and she said we were her favourite guests ever. We loved her so much.
I enjoyed the ambiance and them accommodating us after being in traffic and being 20 minutes late for our reservation. After we paid the $600 bill including tip the manager walked over to our table as I was cutting the cake that I brought and said we were over the 2 hour limit at the table and we needed to leave. I politely told him I understood and to just give us 5 more minutes to eat a piece of cake real quick and he said no we needed to leave now he has people waiting. I told him we just paid a $600 bill and the least he could do was give us 5 more minutes I didn't think that was a lot to ask and he then said "you do have a point, OK 5 more minutes." That I did not appreciate he could've given us the 5 minutes from the get go and saved the restaurant this 4 star review and kept 5.
Accommodating and great service! Booked two tables for a special occasion that met our needs and went above expectations even during a pandemic. Thank you again!
We are BIG on Wait Staff. Our waiter was "just there" Food wasn't hot when it came out. NONE of it. However, the food was delicious (at room temp) Drinks were also tasty. We were seated in the rear of the restaurant. (Outdoor - Appeared as if it was in the rear parking lot, however, they made it appear as if its been there for a while) Either way, I'm NOT a fan of that seating area. Therefore, if you are able to request an indoor table I would do so and/or on the front Patio (High Table). Bathrooms were clean. Lastly, the girls were wearing a black dress, even when bending over a smidgen you can see all of their glory! Not cool, when I'm trying to eat. Overall, the food/drinks were tasty. Inside and front decor is ideal as long as you are NOT seated next to the curb. I would ONLY return if I'm able to be seated inside.
I visited Toca Madera on Saturday, Sept 12 and had a reservation for 4pm. My party and I arrived on time and were seated within 5-7 minutes of arriving. We were seated in the back patio area, where there was music playing and about 6 spaced out tables.
The set-up was nice, and they really did a good job of using that back space. Our waitress was very on top of things, and provided excellent service. The other staff members were also very courteous. There is also a front patio area available where I saw about 12 tables, I believe. It looked energetic and the set-up there was nice, I am assuming that if you have a reservation, they seat you in the more private back patio.
On to drinks - they were fantastic! A but pricey, but you get what you pay for. They were eclectic, beautifully garnished, and strong! I ordered the guava margarita, and the rose sangria. Both I recommend. My friend ordered La Morada, and some sort or espresso infused martini- also were delish.
We ordered a bunch of items to share, so I wont bore you with details. I will say, that most items were great. I did not love the Taco Box because of the protein that I ordered (vegan chicken) it was not the best quality.
Overall, we had a great time. We finished with a tres leches dessert, perfect ending.
I hope you visit this place, be prepared to pay a pretty penny, but its worth it for the quality and overall experience.
Overall, we had a wonderful time.
It was so fun! The waitress was amazing <3
Great service! Seated immediately upon arrival... we were seated in the back area patio. Amazing food... best Sea Bass ceviche and tacos ever!
Fantastic atmosphere and great flavors + terrific service!
Our chicken cilantro tacos were overcooked and tough. We brought this to the attention of our server as well.
Finally, charging 4.5% surcharge for health insurance for restaurant employees is stealth pricing which I am just not a fan of. It’s the cost of doing business and something that needs to be reflected in the pricing.
Christina seemed to be preoccupied...forgot our order twice.
Loved the place good food and amazing service!!
Best Tequila cocktails in town. Vegan options for those plant based eaters.
The food was honestly not that great the calamari was amazing I order the Winnie the Pooh drink it was pretty mediocre as far as cocktails go live the ingredients tho it was just pretty watered down I order 10oz of the Japanese waygu didn’t care for the thickness of the cut the habanero salt was a good touch tho as well as the sauces I also order 8oz of the American waygu which was just a smidge better but I’d had waygu at other restaurants n just enjoyed it a lot more the rice n beans were pretty mushy and extremely flavorless I hate to say the enchiladas roja sauce was delicious but the overall dish was something I could have easily thrown together myself very basic n just seem throw together n warmed up the waitress was nice I also felt rushed tho they didn’t list when I made the reservation that they would b closing at 10 in the kitchen so we had to hurry n order our food as soon as we sat down I was 5min early for reservations n it took them 20min to seat us literally sat down at 9:56 as the waitress told us we had 5min to order as well as many items not being available so it was just a little disappointing because I’d never been to the restaurant heard good things n was excited to try it I give this place a strong 7 mabe when COVID-19 goes away I can give it another try I kno it’s tough during these times to have the best accommodations at a lot of places.
Excellent food, ambiance and wait staff. Only recommendation, is sitting on the sidewalk seating bordering the road was very noisy, and at times ruined the vibe.
