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.

The drinks were my favorite part they were very nice. The food was good and service was great. I didn’t give the ambiance 5 stars since we were outdoors due to covid of course which was fine however there was a car driver parked there that kept honking his alarm which was very annoying. Otherwise is amazing

I love visiting Toca ever time I fly to LA but this time, it just wasn't the same. The food is amazing but the small fish tacos I usually get were even smaller, which is understandable but not worth $18. Also the crowd of pre-teens taking up 3 tables, making quite the scene, totally killed the Toca Madera vibe. Better off getting to go.

Unfortunately , the service this time was horrible. Usually we come and enjoy our dinners here and have no problem. We paid a 650$ bill, the server appeared once every 50 mins. Our food came to the table after over an hour. Even our margarita pitchers (we ordered 2 consecutively) took over an hour. We were so disappointed and paid more than the average table would pay to experience such poor service. In June of 2020 they let us sit inside and we had the best dining experience. this time they made us sit in the crammed back outdoor they created, and they had said they weren’t letting anyone sit inside yet when we got up to leave we saw a few parties sitting on the second floor inside.

Food- INCREDIBLE. MY GOD. The chicken tinga tacos??? To die for. I only knocked a star because the tables were definitely not 6 feet apart, and not all of the servers were wearing face shields or wore their masks correctly. Overall, it’s a cute place with incredible food and cocktails. Just wish they were a bit stricter with Covid protocols, but I still felt alright since we had a corner table and wore our masks when not eating or drinking. Definitely worth checking out! Will come again!

Very fun atmosphere (inside), but very dark in the back where we were seated. Had to use our phone flashlights to see everything. Very unique (and pricey!!) drinks, but I sent one back because it was so spicy. The food was okay, but I can’t justify paying $20 for an average ceviche. The service was fantastic, although I’m not sure it was enough for me to go back.

I didn't know what to expect since I came here before the pandemic. But they did a great job in pivoting with everything going on. I had a great experience. Service was awesome as usual. I will definitely go back.

We came here for my cousins birthday dinner I made reservations for 9:15 and we were seated at 10:30 when we sat down the waitress only came to use once to offer water and never returned back maybe because we were a corner table very forgotten the waitress came back again around 10:40 the food was delicious we had to wait for our drinks another 30 minutes and when it was time for the check we had to ask multiple waiters for the check it seemed like we were invisible rushing out to go to the valet parking since they closed at 12am I had to leave the rest of the party waiting for someone to come give us the check so we can pay.

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.

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.
