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.

    This is a great spot for a meal before or after a Broadway show! The atmosphere is casual and festive and the food is outstanding. Great margaritas and guacamole - whether you go for tacos or an entree, everything is fresh and delicious. Make sure to make a reservation as they fill up.

    Thankfully this was not my first time as I would never have returned. The food was great, as usual, but the service was really bad. Salad and soups served at the same time as mains. And no return to the table to check or ask us about addition drinks. Chips and salsa arrived after the meal. Not friends or interested in us at all.

    Food was excellent but the restaurant was freezing. Everyone was wearing their coats and hats for dinner. Ambiance is an important part of the meal and Toloache missed the mark. Turn on the heat!

    They rush you. From the second you sit down, the servers are trying to get you out. If you want to have a drink, eat guac and an entree in fifteen minutes - this is the place. We sat down at 5:10 and they kept trying to take our plates away. We were out by 5:55, but this was insane. It was rude and they made it clear that they want people in and out as fast as possible.

    This is our second time eating at Toloache Midtown prior to going to a Broadway matinee. We sat downstairs the first time and upstairs this time. Great menu, service, atmosphere and drinks. Definitely our pre-show go to Mexican restaurant.

    Rude hostess. Told me she couldn't find my reservation after I gave her my name and spelled it. Told me they go by first names. Never had this happen in the six years I've been patronizing this restaurant. Waiter was unattentive and even questioned me about not leaving a tip. Unacceptable

    The place was packed which made things a bit chaotic. That being said, the service did a solid job of staying on top of things, even if there were a couple of times where we had an extended wait. The food was very good, but a little small for the price. We would still go back, but maybe not on a Saturday night.

    The food was very good but the place is crowded and noisy and expensive. The service was so-so and I hate those checks where you have to use a machine. I insisted on a paper check which they complied with. I may go back for the food.

    One of the best Mexican restaurants in Manhattan. Outstanding guac in 3 styles, great tacos and platters. And top shelf margaritas. All at relatively moderate prices. Great choice for Theater District, but make a reservation. Nice branch on E 82nd St.

    I eat here every time I come to the city…it’s my favorite place. But this time was not typical of my experiences. There were several large groups and we were one of maybe two couples interspersed with these large and very loud groups. I love their shrimp tacos, but something was different this time. I’m not sure if they were trying out a different flavor combination than in the past or they have a new chef, but they were not as good as before and I wasn’t a fan of the favor profile this time. Also, the churro’s seemed a bit stale and chewy. Again, I love this place and I am certain I will return, but there weee too many things off on this visit!
