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.
Great food, great drinks, great service, great place to catch up with a friend or a casual date.
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
Excellence service and environment
We had a reservation for 9:30 and didn’t sit down until 10:20, the host and security were rude. The waitress barley came to check in us and forgot thinks on my order twice. We asked another waitress to help us
We have a lovely dining experience here!
Outstanding customer service
Reservation was not i the patio area, was outside. But everything was good
Best drinks and ever better food. Two tacos for $15, totally worth a try once or twice. The cocktails were delicious.
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.
Fun bar menu, great staff
We waited over 20 mins to be seated for our reservation! They did not accommodate our anniversary will not be returning for dine in take out only.
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.
It was a super great birthday dinner the cocktails were yummy and the food was beyond us. Will come back for the ceviche a shrimp tacos
We had a great time at Toca. The brunch menu, ambiance and service were outstanding! 5+ stars!!!
Overall great experience drinks where on point 🎉
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.
It was great!!! Food and drinks were fantastic
Drinks are so good and pretty! The white ceviche is so fresh.
Food was mediocre at best. Service was good though - was seated right away. Just sucks being on the sidewalk
Good experience overall but the wait time was ridiculous, seated 23 minutes after our reservation time.
Went for Birthday dinner, the food was good, we didn’t wait long for our table.
The food was good and the drinks were good as usual and the service was great!
Ugh! It was the best ! I
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
Great food and drinks!!!
The food and service was amazing. But this is one of the most boujee restaurants I’ve ever been too and the noise level was extremely high
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 $18. Also the crowd of pre-teens taking up 3 tables, making quite the scene, totally killed the Toca Madera vibe. Better off getting to go.
Perfect for drinks and food. Celebrated a birthday and they even brought out a dessert. Amazing food and great service.
Had a reservation at 10 and wasn’t seated until 10:25 our waitress was horrible we had to wait long for everything she kept forgetting about us and we sure didn’t get any complimentary drink or dessert for the slow service
Unfortunately , the service this time was horrible. Usually we come and enjoy our dinners here and have no problem. We paid a 650$ 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.
Bad service. Wrong food and made us wait more than usual.
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.
Hey Neil! Thank you so much for leaving a positive review. We love to hear that even during these times, we can still deliver the Toca experience. We look forward to having you back soon!
Very nice restaurant with good food but portions are really small for the price.
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.
