Welcome to Toloache (pronounced toh-lo-AH-tchay), chef-owner Julian Medina’s contemporary Mexican bistro located in the heart of the Theater District. Toloache is named after a flowering plant famed in Mexico for its use in love potions. We hope that when you dine with us you too will fall under the spell of chef Medina’s creative cooking, which incorporates seasonal and natural ingredients and more than a dozen types of chilies. Our festive, two-story space features a guacamole and ceviche bar, a wood-burning oven, and an exceptional tequila list, along with elegant decorative elements imported from Mexico. We looking forward to seeing you soon.

    A friend and I grabbed dinner here after a show. It was moderately crowded and noisy, but that was expected given the day and location - but it wasn't disruptive. Server was attentive, drinks were delicious, and the food was too. Overall a good experience and would definitely go back.

    Kept this place in my "eat here again" list from pre-pandemic. Was not disappointed. Best guac ever. Excellent (2) taco plates for lighter appetites: we had birrio and fish. Our 3rd person ordered roasted shrimp with garlic from the fuertes section. Delish! No room for dessert this time (but the flan and churros are yummy). It will stay on my list for the mid-town area.

    Toloache continues to our favorite restaurant in the whole city. We have been there several times now and they never fail to blow us away! Go for the margaritas—there are none better anywhere, and be treated to the best food and service while you’re there. The best, hands down!

    Food was good but overpriced! And with your plate you have to order your sides as extras. No vegan options. Not kid friendly to options for them on menu. I mention when I made reservations that we were celebrating our anniversary and it wasn’t acknowledge when we arrived☹️

    The service was VERY fast, which felt like a negative in this situation. We ordered an appetizer and entree and were out in less than 30 minutes. Staff stopped by constantly and it felt naggy, although there were plenty of empty tables and not like they needed our table to turn over for a reservation or guests waiting. The food was okay... I make better guacamole at home and for $15, that was disappointing. The tacos we ordered (carne asada, birria) were good.

    We arrived almost 15 minutes early for our 12:30pm lunch reservation. We were seated right away and taken up to the upper dinner area. We enjoyed our cocktails and ordered some of our favorite appetizers for the table….queso fundido con chorizo and quesadilla de huitlacoche y trufas. We then ordered 2 orders of lechón (carnitas) tacos and 2 of suadero. The food was excellent and the service was good but I must saya a table on the first floor is more pleasant. We’ll be back soon when back in the area!!

    Must order the trio of guacamole to start it off. The enchiladas borachas were amazing. The Toloache house special drink was delicious not to strong just right. Our server Andrea was a delight. Highly recommend this spot for a date or just good food and good vibes.

    Overall ok, but just ok. The menu needs a re-write: several items said 'spicy'; they were not. The lobster tacos were small, no spice, barely flavor at all. The Quinoa Paella was ok, but the sauce...mayonnaise? Service was good, once they remembered to bring my drink long after everyone else's. For the price, we were not impressed. Overall, ok. But we won't be back.
