This place has a great ambience. As far as food goes it’s okay. Don’t let my okay discourage you to try it. As we all have different taste buds. I believed food was a bit bland and wasn’t worth the price. Great place I’d say to have an appetizer and a drink. They nailed the ambience aspect. If it’s your bday they don’t the restaurant doesn’t offer anything special.

We go to Toca Madera pretty regularly. This night the service was pretty slow for some reason. Got all of or appetizers and most of our food before our first drinks even came out.

First time dining here. Was visiting from Atlanta. Waitress recommended trying one of the “Hot Rock” dishes, as that’s what they’re known for. I had the carne asada. It was served with grilled peppers and onions and flour tortillas. 3 different salts were provided for the meat and 3 different sauces. The flavor of the meat, and the rice and beans were all outstanding. The passion fruit margarita was also a shining star. Strong and not overly sweet. Will definitely dine here again!

Covid times. You sit on sidewalk with people walking by. Needless to say, zero ambiance. But this one is even less desirable Then rhe covid parking lot arrangement. People walking throughout the tables constantly because od curb traffic. Wait till they repopen.

Birthday dinner the wait to sit down took about 20-30 minutes even though we had a reservation. The food is great downside is it came out prior to our drink. I love the Chile relleno but it was missing the Pomegranate.

I made reservation about 3 weeks ago, and yesterday we drove up from San Diego to celebrate my birthday at Toca Madera. I was unaware our reservation would be for a table on the sidewalk. We asked if there was anything inside, they said that area is called the "secret garden" and there was no availability unfortunately. Since we drove from so far away, we decided to order drinks while looking at the food menu. The waitress then proceeds to inform us that there is a 90-minute time limit per table. So basically we have to down our drinks and chow down our food so we can give up our sidewalk table to someone else in 90 minutes. I understand that businesses are trying to stay afloat during this pandemic but we really didn't expect this kind of an experience at Toca Madera. I don't think we will be returning to Toca Madera in the future.

I like that the music level is quieter during COVID, it's easier to hear people at your table talk, when before the music was wayy too loud. Love this place!! wagyu is to dieeee for

Food was so overrated. They gave our reservation to someone else on accident and then had to scramble to get us seated. Just really was under-whelming for the all the hype this place gets.

I was a little disappointed with this place, for me it did not live up to the hype.
The cocktails were great but I felt the food was pretty average and at a high price tag.

The overall experience was good, but there were a few hiccups along the way. One of the main reasons I chose this place was to try the churro waffles and the extensive vegan brunch menu. There was a limited menu when we arrived and the item I wanted was not available. I settled for a vegan parfait and realize the raspberries were speckled with mold. I was told it was the size of the raspberry seeds but I hardly believe that as I would have known The difference. Raspberries typically don’t have a long shelf life so I know the difference between black and large seeds and green mold. The vegan burrito I had was good and definitely big enough to share. Everyone was very attentive and they did take care of the parfait, but it was quite disappointing to not have what I originally wanted. I will definitely give this place another shot, but I would have to call ahead and see what they have available for their vegan option before hand.
