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.

    Going to a show in NY? This was my second time here and I'd say try this place out if you like Mexican food at a great price! Their food is delicious--the tacos are all amazing as are the enchiladas. Their servers are attentive, and they work diligently to get you out well before your showtime. Love this place!

    Service was quick and friendly here and easily made it in and out in time for a show. I had the Arroz con Mariscos and it was delicious. My wife’s dish was a bit spicy but the guacamole trio was a winner for sure.

    Toloache never disappoints! From the creative cocktails to the delicious menu and attentive service, we always come back. The quest fundido is always a treat, the ceviches are bright and tasty, the enchiladas and tacos are my favorites. Definitely get the churros or tres leches dessert.

    First time there but won’t be my last. Menu saids what gluten free. I have Celiac and don’t get to eat at Mexican restaurants. I’m so happy I found one that is safe for me to eat. Didn’t get sick and enjoyed everything about it.

    This was my third time coming here and it was disappointing. The menu has changed - it's not the inventive, creative, "haute" Mexican that I previously loved! Now, it's just another Mexican restaurant but with very small portions and high prices. Service was very courteous and professional, but the noise level was high.

    We had a lovely meal. We had reservations, but came early and they were able to seat us. Liquor drinks were a little pricey, but sure did pack a punch. so the drinks for worth it. They were very busy so the noise level was higher than I prefer., but over all experience worth it.

    Food was great! Service was spot on! It was Saturday evening before a show, and they were really busy. Although we had reservations for inside, they let us know they were running late and offered us an immediate table outside if we didn’t want to wait, which we did. There were individual heaters so we were pretty comfortable. Server came right away, drinks and food were served promptly, and food was great. Great experience!

    Spent the weekend in NYC to Dr some shows and went to Toloache for pre-show dinner. Encountered a huge crowd all looking to get seated so the entrance was packed. Got seated after 15 min. Lucky to be away from the door where a lot of cold air was constantly rushing in. But overall, the servers were attentive and the food delicious. Loved the atmosphere and overall experience.

    We dropped in here for a quick bite after we saw the taping of a show. The food was good and the service was quick and attentive. We were rather tired so we did not stay but I would surely go back.

    We LOVED everything about our visit here. It was decorated beautifully, the food was delicious (the guac was yummm) the service was fast and detailed. They anticipated every need. Also, a member of our party has celiac disease and they had many gluten free options and they’re clearly marked. Chips are cooked in a dedicated fryer. We’re ready to go back!

    Revisited Toloache for a pre-theater dinner with my husband. Service was prompt and attentive. Food is reasonably priced but basic margarita was $15. Spicy guacamole and chips were outstanding. There are only two vegetarian dishes on the menu. Quinoa paella was flavorful but the asparagus was thick and tough. Chicken enchiladas were delicious and the portion was huge. Note that entrees do not come with sides like rice and beans - they have to be ordered separately. Overall a very good meal and we'll be back.

    We always enjoy Toloache. Very good Mexican cuisine with very good service in a well-appointed dining room. We especially enjoyed the traditional guacamole, which also comes with a very tasty and unique salsa, and the shrimp Toloache. Churros are a great choice for dessert; they come with two dipping sauces - chocolate and caramel. The chocolate has a really unique taste! Toloache is a great choice for pre- or post-theater dining in the main Broadway theater district. It is on 50th St just off 8th Avenue. Recommended!
