When we arrived, it appeared the manager or owner was hosting. They didn’t have our reservation, he went back inside to check came out asked me to pull mine up (not a big deal) then he said you know we are only open until 10pm and sort of gave us a look. I told him we knew (it was 8:30). I just kinda got the vibe he didn’t want to serve us. We did get a table the waiter was awesome, food was good , drinks were so great! I had the de la Calle. Just generally not welcoming with the mix up at the door. Two bigger groups in the back were very very loud and we left before they were done so I don’t really understand the we close at 10 comment.
Consistently excellent food. Extremely safe and warm environment. Lovely staff.
Excellent food, drinks, service
Great food! Great margheritas! And the staff is always so welcoming. One of my favorite meals in NYC when I visit from Paris.
Great place for some out of the ordinary Mexicali! Won't disappoint!
Best place in the neighborhood! Go give it s visit, order delivery or buy a gift certificate to support these great people!
Great Mexican food with creative twists. The drinks are delicious, too.
All was great!
I loved the food and the place i didnt like that they had a party literally so close to us when they were many empty tables but chose the one next to us and i couldnt even hear my self while im talking
birthday celebration. Awesome place
We've been here now three times, and each time we have ordered similar things, the "medium" spiced guacamole is wonderful and different, with pomegranate and mango. We usually order three different taco entrees (2 tacos per order for a total of 6 tacos to then be shared for the two of us--so each gets three tacos each). The short ribs tacos were amazing! All in all, good food, although wine prices seem excessively high, and limited choices.
Great place to hung out with friends. Good service and food.
Food is always good and drinks go down easy.
I always love having dinner at Toloache. Amazing cocktails and delicious and unique food options. I highly recommend this place and keep on coming back. It definitely is not cheap but the food is so worth it!!!
Best Paella ever !!!
Fun for me and my girlfriends. Food was very good and service was excellent. They realized it was my friend’s birthday without us telling them and surprised her with a song. Was very thoughtful
Always a reliably good experience. Suitable for all ages and budgets with lots of choices to accomodate various food restrictions.
We have been to Toalache on Thompson Street, they have a Happy Hour, when we went to the upper east side we asked about happy hour to be told - "we don't need happy hour here" . Watery frozen margaritas and $4 for chips and dip - rip off.
Great place, food terrific
Great food, reasonably priced. Outstanding service. Can't wait to go back!
We enjoyed the traditional guacamole and and quesadilla. The carne asada was delicious. I ordered 2 margaritas. I was disappointed with the first one, which seemed watered down; the second one was stronger and much better.
Great service! Food was incredible— nice variety of margaritas for everyone to choose from and incredible fresh guacamole!
I first visited Toloache several months ago for brunc on a Sunday. I sat at the bar, in the quiet cozy front room, and enjoyed delicious pozole and ceviches. My return on a Friday night was less pleasant. My companion and I were seated in the very loud back room, dominated by oblivious and entitled patrons - not the restaurant's fault of course, but all too standard for Friday in the UES. Service was good, but the tacos were heavily oversalted. I look forward to trying again at a quieter time.
The service is so good and I have a lot of dietary restrictions so that’s always a huge bonus. Food is very good but not anything mind blowing. Drinks are very good. I would go definitely to back.
Nice atmosphere and food was great! We had a few drinks and plates to share, ceviche was delicious and so were the tacos,so flavorful! It was snowing, so probably it wasn't as noisy as others said, but service was great. Our server was very attentive and courteous.
This is a wonderful restaurant with great cocktails, attentive service, and delicious food. Would definitely come back.
Very good Mexican food at a reasonable price. Enchiladas and duck are especially good. Jícama salad also very good.
Very good food as always and excellent service. Only negative was noise level which is always high and sometimes desfeningy
Great menu, excellently prepared, and great service. Very simpatico !
Yes. Delicious Mexican food. Very nice service and prompt attention to our food.
Way to expensive for the quality and size of the food!
Food is very good. We had the medium guacamole with the pomegranates (delicious and unusual), and then we shared three variations of the tacos, for a total of 6 tacos to share between two people, which makes a nice meal.
Service super; food excellent;
Not your typical Mexican fare. A little more unusual and creative. Really delicious. Lots of vegetarian options. Great margaritas, too!
Thanks to Dan for all of your help! See you next time!!
My friend and I had both the regular guacamole and the "fruited" version with pomegranate. Both were very good. Also, the ceviche appetizer and cod and duck entrees were extraordinary.
We had a wonderful Hanukkah celebration. Toloache's special menu couples with selections from their regular menu made for a delicious and fun family evening.
Food was okay, I have been coming here for years and it just wasn’t the same. Not sure if the chef changed but the service & food have definitely gone down hill within the last 6 months
Great food and reasonably priced. It your typical Mexican restaurant so no chips and salsa on the table. Everything tasted great but the service was not great. The decor was cool. I would go back for sure despite the service.
loved my skinny margheritas and the absolutely amazing steak
we were so lucky that we went on a slow night. Great service and not too noisy!
