    It’s a beautiful and unique restaurant/bar. The staff and service was a 10 out of 10. The menu is small but everything we tried was delicious and the cocktails were amazing. The dining ambiance was relaxing and intimate. I loved it!

    Thank you TOLOA for making my birthday brunch party a beautiful and unforgettable experience. Everyone that had a hand in organizing, decorating, & preparing for this party made the planning process pleasant from start to finish. A special thanks to Mariana Chong and Amalia Ramirez for going above and beyond. They took care of everything from picking up flowers from Southern Roots, rentals from Cantù’s, to printing personal menus and setting the tables. Everything was beautifully done. The restaurant is stunning and makes you feel like you are not in Mcallen. The elevator to the main floor is a nice touch. The service was welcoming and attentive. The brunch menu was a hit and everyone loved the mimosa and sangria bar cart set up. Thank you so much for making this such a successful and memorable event. It was a very special birthday and TOLOA surpassed all expectations.

    Beautiful chic restaurant on the 2nd floor, we went on a Saturday night with reservation but they were kind enough to let us go to the bar instead of a table. Didn't get busy until closer to 8pm. Great service. For drinks, tried the Jungle Bird which felt a little on the savory side but not alot of flavor. Tried and enjoyed the Missionary drink. We had the Puerco and Melon, which was tasty and recommend. Also had the tiradito de atun? which I agree with other reviews that doesn't have alot of flavor, needed maybe more acid and salt.. Would come back though. Bartender mentioned new menu items are coming soon.

    Very nice to have champagne on the house for our birthday party. Waitress was helpful and friendly and recommended a good meal and dessert. Just feel it wasn’t understood it was for a special occasion specifically two birthdays even though I called ahead and kitchen only sent out one candle and kept emphasizing that it was my birthday even though I kept clarifying it was both of us even while settling the bill - we told her we were going to linger at balcony for a bit before we decided when to leave. I felt embarrassed and rushed that she came out to the balcony to insist that we close out our ticket in front of everyone. Otherwise it’s a great place as always - worth dressing up for and the food was delicious.

    Firstly, service from every server was amazing in the sense of attentiveness and knowledge over drinks and menu. A must have is the puerco y melon. It’s a delicious meal offering a crispy yet fatty umami piece of pork pair with three types of melon. Another great shareable dish was the chorizo de mariscos. The four mini sourdough bread sandwiches with the shrimp chorizo were crispy and tasteful. The aguachiles were good, but needed more of a spicy kick. Drinks on the other had were great in taste and presentation. The Missionary, a pretty pink and fruity gin drink. The cafe tapatio, a delicious coffee drink, way stronger than I initially thought so definitely a sip drink. The establishment is beautifully designed with a social atmosphere in mind. The social table in the middle was nice to see strangers enjoying each others company. Would definitely reserve again and try their new brunch next time. Thank you Ricardo for the amazing time and service.

    Came in on a Thursday. I scheduled on the open table app which showed no available seating inside only outside. I have a five month old that I brought with us and put in the comments when making my reservation. When we arrived the hostess took us to a table inside as she read the comments and changed it for us. I thought that was so nice of her to do as I really didn’t want to sit outside in the heat and wind. She took us into serious consideration. Then our servers all knew the menu well and had excellent recommendations. Everything we ordered that they recommended was very good. I didn’t even feel like we were in the valley. Would highly recommend.

    I was very excited to try this new bar lounge in town. It’s a beautiful space. Cocktails were very good. But the food was not good. The flavor and texture doesn’t make sense. On social the photos of the food looked amazing, but in real life it was just meh. The biggest disappointment for me was the wagyu short ribs. The sweet potato was VERY dry, the cole slaw was BLAND, and so was the short rib. It was also cooked well done? I was kind of expect it to be super tender and Flavorful…..I wouldn’t go back for food, but cocktails yes!

    Service was great and our server took great care of us! Drinks were well prepare and on time, there was a variety to choose from. The food was the one we enjoyed the most, definitely the taste was out of this world. Plate was decorated to perfection without disrupting the flavor of the food. The ambience was on point and the view and breeze was good. Definitely will come back.

    A group of friends and I (total of 5) went on a Saturday evening. We decided to dine inside because of the horrible heat outside, except our experience inside was horrible. We were sweating of how hot it was even though our room wasn't full. Our waiter was awesome, but the speed of the food and taste was not great at all. Three of us got our plates first. We waited a while to get started so the other two can get their food, but it was taking too long. We decided to begin eating and eventually one other person got her plate. The fifth person never got her food! She had to cancel her order. On top of this, our drinks were taking way too long and most of the food had no flavor. The only dish that seemed acceptable were the taste of the tacos.

    Overall the 3 Appetizers and cocktails we had were delicious, different and great. We normally do not choose to sit outdoors due to the south Texas heat and humidity, but we were pleasantly surprised how breezy and nice it was on the second floor. Our waiter was attentive and friendly which is always a plus. We will come back again.

    The menu is really disappointing. I understand the concept but I don’t see this lasting very long. The drinks are over priced and I mainly say this because they weren’t very good, but at least the service is good. We thought maybe it was a bad one so we bought the same thing again and they both came back the same. We just ordered something a little more simple. It’s a cool place to hangout with friends since it’s more of a sharing type place. I expected more for those prices.

    I came by myself since I wanted to drink while I worked on some stuff at amazing bar I saw on pictures, and it was great! The ambiance was so chill and welcoming, bartenders were amazing and when I asked to be moved to a table outside to eat they immediately arranged something for me. My server Ricardo was amazing and super attentive. I had the ensalada de mar, the Puerco y Melon and, the Chorizo de Mariscos and WOW, it was so good and the flavors felt so unique. Definitely would recommend, I asked the hostess on what days she recommended to come with friends to have a more livelihood experience and she recommended the weekends definitely since they have a DJ and everything! Everyone was so nice too! Like from the moment you walk in to the second you leave.

    Service and drinks were really good. But the food was horrible. They need a bigger menu. Or at least edible food. My husband got sick in an hour from our appetizer . I didn’t eat it because I didn’t like the way it looked.
