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.

The place was packed, which is good for me . Had a reservation for 8:15pm, was a little late to be seated but not a problem, food and ambience made up for it. The guacamole and margaritas were great. Would definitely recommend.

The place was packed on a sunday evening and therefore it was extremly loud. Really hard to have a conversation. Food was decent but not great. Service was professional and efficient.

Toloache has been much better in the past/ they were very busy but overlooked a lot of details that left us with a subpar experience.

This is a neighborhood gem! Hostesses, servers & manager did a great job handling the pre-theater, Friday night (of a holiday weekend) crowd with professionalism & a smile. We tried several small plates & everything was delicious- including the sangria. They know what they are doing which is why we keep coming back. Bravo!

Too tight a table. No privacy at all. Also so dark—couldn’t read menu without using light on our phones—and we weren’t the only ones. And giant tv cheapened the ambiance. Food was tasty but small portions. Did not like the ceviche at all. Margarita and guacamole were excellent, tho. Service was timely but no personality or interest in creating anything but a mediocre experience. Wouldn’t go back.

Great service- unobtrusive- interesting take on Mexican food- all dishes tasty and beautifully plated. Warm setting, nice decor. Tequila list looked fabulous.
