The short rib bone marrow tacos are unbelievably delicious
The food and margaritas are never a disappointment.
And the outdoor dining is great too!
always a consistently delicious meal with lovely attentive staff
We done out a lot and You rarely find a bad place in nyc but it does take a lot to be memorable. This was one place that absolutely did - very very good. Great find.
We love Toloache. Lively ambience. Back porch great. Food, drink and service excellent. We enjoy it every time.
We had a nice night and a delicious dinner.
We ate outside in one of the cabins, and the only drawback was when a large truck would go by. Otherwise the experience was great. The We ate the waiter's suggested
menu choices and were very pleased.
Great ambiance and decor, welcoming staff and the best skirt steak evah ! Ceviche was very good as was the margarita. New neighborhood gem for us . Will definitely return!
Worst tacos I have ever had, and I've had them all over.
The fillings were poorly prepared. The chicken tacos had chicken and a large heapful of tomatoes, no other ingredients which seemed very unusual. The carne asada was the consistency of rubber. The beef rib tacos lacked any seasoning at all. The worst part was that tortillas were extremely soggy. I wasn't even able to pick up the taco to eat it. I had to use a knife and fork.
The low point was that when we told our server that we can't even pick up the tacos to eat them, he said that next time we should order a side of tortillas so that our tacos don't become so soggy. Not even an apology, let alone an offer to remedy the situation.
Very negative experience.
Not a complaint, the food was very good but when looking back at the waiters recommendations after receiving the bill it was obvious he only recommended the 3 highest priced items on the menu. Again, I thought everything was delicious but he was definitely padding the bill.
Loved this place. The 4 of us ate in one of the outdoor cabins, which was very comfortable. Our server was attentive. The food was great. Very happy overall.
Great get together with friends
Great food and service. Love the courtyard.
Excellent food and service. Outdoor seating in back is fantastic.
Tacos were excellent as was tuna ceviche. Would have loved another two churros to use up the delicious chocolate and dulce de leche sauces.
Great neighborhood find!
Great food and drinks. Highly recommend!
Incredible food service and ambiance in back garden!! Definitely going back often !! Staff was fun and cared too
I booked this for Sunday brunch... had good vibes after reading reviews. Toloache did not disappoint in any way. I highly recommend this excellent restaurant!
Old standby that has gone down hill. Food quality has shifted. Guac was filled w hard frozen avocado chunks. Fish was past its prime. Lackluster meal.
As always, service, foot and atmosphere amazing!
Delicious food, friendly service. The food came out quickly as well
Very ordinary food, service is attentive and friendly.
Nice outdoor seating, although the patio seemed more appealing than the side alley where we were seated. The food was excellent, my favorite the lobster taco.
A go-to place for upper east siders. Love the margaritas, amazing food and the friendliness of the staff members. Never disappointed with the experience
Cesar is a good human
Host was extremely rude.
Great place.Great food.We enjoyed it Definitely will be back.
Toloache is my favorite. My go to restaurant as it never disappoints. The food is excellent. The staff are attentive. Service with a smile.
I go to Toloache a few times a year, always like the food and service. Sitting inside for the first time since the pandemic was nicer than in the past since they removed a few tables, making it less crowded and not quite as noisy. I'll be back.
Great food and the drinks were awesome. The quinoa paella was really good.
Excellent food, terrific margaritas. FYI the octopus tacos were terrific, however they are a little small. If you ordered an appetizer they would be fine. But I did not and was hungry a few hours later.
We have been to this restaurant many many times and are never disappointed.
One observation: as we are over 50 I have noticed a distinct behavior pattern in some restaurants that involve placing people over 50 in back rooms. As it turned out the room, which was empty when we were seated was filled by a large group soon after we were seated.
Good food and service.
Their short rib tacos are awesome
Delicious Mexican food with a difference - much closer to what I've had in good taquerias in CDMX than much of what passes for Mexican fare in New York.
Food sucked!!! It truly was incredible awful. The guac was brown which is just gross
Great neighborhood Mexican with Great cocktails and consistently solid food.
Amazing food and service.!!!
Haven't been to Toloache for quite a long time, and it was as wonderful as I remembered. Had the Tumbada - first time trying it - and it was fabulous.
It was noisier than I remembered, but we sat in a different location in the restaurant before, and the place was much more crowded last night. But it was tolerable. I definitely will go again soon.
Food is excellent!
Our first time at the Toloache UES location, having eaten at the Midtown location dozens of times and at the (now-closed) downtown location once.
Biggest issue was, simply, the food: it was similar to the Midtown location, but lacked the polish and the excellence that I think makes Toloache Midtown as good a "high-end traditional" Mexican experience as you'll find in the city. It was...just OK, from the guacamoles to the sides to the tacos.
Service, however, was tremendous, and the little houses built curbside did make for a nice way to enjoy the time spent.
Can't say I'd return to this location, though, if only because Toloache Midtown is that much better....
