Welcome to Toloache (pronounced toh-lo-AH-tchay), chef-owner Julian Medina's contemporary Mexican bistro located in the Upper East Side. 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. Along with the authentic Mexican menu and an exceptional tequila list, we offer elegant decorative elements imported from Mexico. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Then basically told us we had to leave, even though we were way within the restaurant closing time. We were not even invited to go to the bar for them start getting the place ready for closing. The worse part was the attitude of Karina, the hostess, who became rather aggressive and instead of trying to make us happy clients, kept on saying we needed to write a letter to the people who live above, while we were dining inside and not being loud at all. We would have understood if we had been sitting outside. Not a nice scene when you have guest form oversees…. Karina needs to work on customer service treatment….

And they have a back patio that is lovely on a nice day or evening.

So fun and festive. The food is always absolutely delicious and authentic. By now I think I’ve had everything on the menu. Never had a less than perfect meal at Toloache. The manager Dan is a big reason why this place is a local hotspot. He is always going 100 miles an hour but has time to greet you by name and feel utterly welcome. He has the keen ability to keep everyone happy and laughing……even if there is a long wait for a table because you forgot to make a reservation.

We do, however, prefer the cozy, family vibe at the UES location. The three guacamoles with crudités is a winning starter. The chicken Toloache and shrimp entree are both very good, tasty, fresh and well prepared. While there are many gluten free options, the non-mushroom vegetarian entrees are quite limited, and we wish the vegetarian burrito style entree was back on the menu. The drinks are solid. The service is accommodating and attentive (even on Cinco de Mayo when the UES location was packed beyond comprehension, the staff remained composed, attentive and warm…. showing grace under pressure.) Dinner at Toloache always is a fun and really enjoyable experience with its upbeat vibe, festive atmosphere, accommodating service and yummy food. It’s become a go-to dining spot!

I started with a hand shake Marguerita- tasty but $16 seems high for a cocktail. I tried the yellowtail cervache, which the waiter recommended, and it was good. Fish was fresh, but I didn't really like the hot sauce they put on it. The fried piece of avocado was a nice touch, as were the tiny pieces of cucumber- yum. Then I had the beef tacos- they were very good, but only two....so while it was enjoyable, not a lot of food for $55...plus a $10 tip...very pricey for Mexican food I can make at home. But enjoyable, and the place was packed, so I think it's a beloved place to enjoy a fine Mexican meal.

Great location. Nice ambiance. Great Tequila selection. Only thing that was shocking was we ordered tequilas at the end of our meal and on our bill they were more expensive than on the menu. When we brought it up, the manager said the menu online was wrong and it's always been like that. Ok.... So we lightheartedly pointed out that either the system should reflect the menu or the menu should be updated. With a terrible attitude, the manager reluctantly offered to take off the difference. We didn't bother but that was unnecessary. Just fix your menu. Wouldn't that just solve the problem for everyone?
