Hidden gem! European ambiance with excellent service and knowledge about menu. Fabulous veal paprikash with spaeztle. Plus yummy little surprises that accompany your dinner.
Food was outstanding. However, wine list could do with improvement.
Very good True Hungarian cuisine
Everything was delicious. Feels like family owned and authentic Hungarian cuisine. I had the Veal Chop and my wife had the tenderloin. Both were quite flavorful and delicious. We especially liked the duck/veggie spread with warm bread and the complimentary soup with duck liver dumpling.
We have been to Tokaj 4 times and have been very pleased with the quality of the food and the service. The music is a bit louder than we would like since we usually go with friends and like to talk at the table. However the musician is very talented. The wines are interesting because of the selection - including some very fine Hungarian wines. Love the desserts -- makes me think of what my Hungarian grandmother used to make. We will go again!
We’ve been there twice now and the food has been on point with generous portions. We have not been disappointed in any of the meals and have always had left overs. What a hidden gem.
Very authentic and delicious. The owner is cooking and has some great options on the menu.
We had a fabulous meal and the service was excellent. We will definitely go back. The live violinist added to the overall great experience here.
Food is authentic and terrific. Service is attentive and caring What more can you want?
This is a charming small restaurant with attentive service and excellent quality of food. Interesting wines to accompany the meal .
The food was delicious and the atmosphere was quiet and cozy.
Excellent food and service every time. One of the best restaurants in Sarasota!
Another wonderful meal. We celebrated my birthday with a delicious meal in a very pleasant environment
It was a wonderful dining experience. I felt like I was in a European cafe. The food was delicious and I would definitely go back again.
Great Food, attentive and friendly staff, great ambience. Most definitely recommend
Excellent food and service
This is without a doubt one of the nicest restaurants in all of Sarasota. The food is cooked expertly and is presented elegantly. We truly enjoyed our evening at Tokaj.
Fantastic, home-made style food in a relaxing atmosphere. I'll be back!
This is a wonderful local restaurant with outstanding Hungarian-inflected food and excellent personal service. Also an interesting wine list with lots of by-the-glass options.
They have live violin and canned music on Fri and Sat evenings - and I would recommend coming on other nights. The noise level with the music is just too much for such a small room. We have found it to be more pleasant on non-music nights.
Be warned that the portions are large!
It was our first visit to Tokaj, and we had a wonderful experience. The owner waited on us, and could not have been more pleasant. The food was great! We should not have, but we did have the walnut cake, which was to die for! A violinist was playing, and it was a perfect evening. We will be back for sure. This charming restaurant is a hidden gem.
Amazing! Very good!
Been several times and each time the total experience was better than the last visit. Every course was excellent. The Hungarian wine Eva recommended was outstanding. This restaurant is excellent and unique.
Our first and last visit. The wine was excellent. However, the salad was very good and the remainder of the food was overly spiced and barely edible
The desert crepe was swimming in chocolate sauce and fortunately a small part did not get dunked in the sauce. The wine cost 38.00 and the food 70.00
Better prepared food for the same price can be enjoyed at other restaurants.
Enjoyed everything. The stuffed cabbage was particularly good . We used the savor menu but think prices are good even without it. We will definitely go again and take friends.
Food and service were outstanding. We can't say enough how great our experience was.
Nice place. Good food. Relaxing atmosphere. Small, intimate restaurant.
Such a wonderful experience! Great food, beautiful live violin music, awesome place for date night, family dinner or just a Tuesday!
Excellent food made from scratch! Chef very attentive, customer friendly. Having in the background the play of a live violinist was an unexpected bonus which upgraded an already excellent dinner to a sophisticated experience! It is a restaurant on my recommendation list!
The quaint restaurant was lovely and the live violin music was really lovely in the background with contemporary sounds. The service was exceptional with a smile. And then the food! The food stole the show from the lovely soup like my mother used to make. A lovely salad that we shared was great. Then we started with the pheasant wrapped in crepe with a wine sauce that was out of this world delish! The veal paprikash was better than I've had since last visiting Hungary years ago. The duck was cooked to absolute perfection. I truly cannot wait to go back again! And again!
Excellent cuisine delivered by a seriously skilful CHEF. Charming and efficient front of house team
All the food was delicious, especially the goat cheese salad and the sole. This is our 5th trip to Tokaj and they never disappoint.
Very charming European-style restaurant with friendly staff and excellent food. Three of the four of us had never had Hungarian food before and the waitress was very helpful steering us toward more traditional dishes. Four different meals were all excellent and the wines perfectly complemented the food. In the European tradition, we had the table for the evening and spent lots of time talking between courses. Service was a bit slow but we didn't mind since we were thoroughly enjoying the food, drinks and delightful ambience.
2 out of 4 of us found our entrees overcooked and dry.
We all enjoyed Tokaj. A few of the dishes were a bit salty but everyone enjoyed their dinner. We think Tokaji is a very good place. Very good job overall.
Excellent and attentive staff. Food was delicious.
Food and service were very good but it takes too long to receive the main course.
Thoroughly enjoyed dining at Tokaj. Small intimate ambience with excellent food and wines. Highly recommend for a nice dinner out. Will definitely come back
Incredible food! Friendly staff even when they get overwhelmed with customers. Will go there again next time I'm back in this market.
Over an hour to get our first course!! food was good but far far to slow coming
lovely and romatic setting with violinist -- food and service are fantastic
our new favorite restaurant in all of Sarasota
