Everything was perfect! We walked right up and got seated within 5 mins, during that time we ordered a drink at the bar paid for it and our table was ready. The music the environment overall was a plus.

Very loud but great music ! Food was amazing - everything seemed spicy. So please let them know if you can’t handle spice. The food is expensive but totally worth it!
My husband sat on a bench with out back rest- and said it was very uncomfortable!!!

Fabulous restaurant and great food, scene, music, decor and service. Loved the flaming margaritas and the cerviche. Great looking crowd. Super fun place for dinner and cocktails. There was even a fire dancer and some live music from a guitar player who walked around Loved it.

For someone who works in the industry, I dont really like to point out flaws, and usually have consideration for the staff when it comes to food taking long or drinks being forgotten.
As for this case, I will give an exception since my dad came to visit me and he wanted to grab dinner. I am familiar with Toca and hoped my dad would have a good time. The host were great, the bartender was okay, it would be nice for them to say hi and introduce themselves before asking ‘what can i get you?’
Anyways the server we had Ryan was great at first. We got water filled up right as we sat. The server came about 5min after and asked us if we hd any questions on the menu but I wanted to make it an easy tip table for him so i told him we knew what we wanted and we would give him out entire order all at once so he doesnt have to run around for us. Mind you he is still a server and we still want service. Like water refills which we only got when we were completed with our meals, more on that later. Anyways we order our appetizer and main course together. The server had to care in coursing out the meals and had everything sent out all at once. I didnt say anything bc of me being in the industry and I could understand. It just would have been nice to here from the server why it came out at the same time or why the appetizer took so long. So at tgis point we are done with our meal and my food was spicy. I had finished my water halfway thru my meal and both me and my father were turning heads trying to find the server. He never checked up and made sure we were enjoying our meal, we never received a water refill, i still wanted to order a drink but the server never came. Only until the end of the meal when we were done when the server came and shoved dessert menu’s in our face and asked if we were interested. I said we were interested in water and he left to go get it. He came back and asked again if we wanted dessert. I asked for the check as i dont support douch servers.

First time at this restaurant. It has beautiful decor. Portion size is average/comparable to most restaurants during brunch. Had the churro waffle which had way too much cinnamon on it and it was cold. Eggs were tasty as well as the papas bravas although it had more onions and peppers than it did potatoes. My partner has the omelet mexicano. The omelet was small and he ended up eating some of my food because he was still hungry. His favorite was the duck bacon. Will try again as the menu has variety.

I cannot say a bad word about the food because we loved the chicken enchiladas and the salmon was excellent, but a few things you must know. First, do not come here at night if you want to be able to talk. It's literally impossible to hear anyone from even right next to you without practically yelling. It's LOUD....no exaggeration! People are loud and music is loud. Also, our waiter was nice, but the service was not good at all. We were looking for our waiter several times and it always took him forever to check on us.

The food tasted good but I feel it was overpriced. They charged $36 for what i believe was about 6 oz of skirt steak. The service was great and they gave amazing decor but the music was blasting and it was difficult to have a dinner conversation.

Took 15 mins for a server to show up or to even get water after being seated. Water refill took another 15 mins and this was around 11:45pm when it wasn't as busy.
