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.

Our dinner was delicious, but the price tag wasn't the greatest. Mostly stay away from the quesadillas - not worth the money! My dining partner had the Pollo Toloache and it was very good - warm, well-cooked, expertly flavored. He enjoyed his margarita as well. I had Mexican Coke, which was a nice treat. Mostly I'd say go for the big plates if you're in the mood to eat!

Probably the best guacamole we have ever eaten. This was our second visit in a week after a recommendation by a friendly dog walker on the street. Great margaritas with an amazing tequila selection. Very good service.

I highly recommend this restaurant. It is a little expensive for as small Mexican restaurant but it is worth it. It's comfortable, and the food is delicious. The service was very good as well. Overall a very pleasant place to dine

Always enjoy the food and ambience at Toloache, and the signature house Margarita.
Service is charming - the restaurant is small so the tables are tight, and sometimes noise from other tables is intrusive, but we can usually be moved to a quieter spot. Bar is energetic and fun, but somehow noise level is less! We love Toloache for brunch on the weekend.

Meal outstanding. However, no price value meal. Portions were small.

Very good. Good reliable dishes. Stick with the favorites/ classics. We tried the Mexican latkes and a tequila cream aperitif.. not sure what we were thinking. Still love it.
