Ambiance was my favorite part - didn't sit on the patio outside because it was a bit chilly. Had the best table in the house. Tried enough different things on the menu. Greeted with a refreshing drink to cleanse the palate. Started with fresh guacamole. Lomo Saltado is well done, a fresh, fun take on a traditional Peruvian dish. Had the suggested ceviche...beautiful presentation and delicious to boot! Finished with a fun dessert and coffee...will go back!

Everything here was pretty amazing. We started off with happy hour sized guacamole and ceviche. Then the waitertold us about the dinner menu ceviche (Amarillo) and it sounded so delicious, so we ordered that too. Then came the entrance. The Mrs ordered the salmon, I had the 14 oz ribeye. Simply delicious. Great mix of flavors and everything was prepared perfectly. Will definitely be back here.

Disappointing experience . We have eaten at the Toro restaurant in Cabo numerous times and the service and food was exquisite . The food tonight was great but the waitress had an attitude and was disinterested in creating a typical Richard Sandoval experience . She knew nothing about the food and when I mentioned that the capirhina had too much ice she balked and did not even apologize . She didn’t even thank us for coming . And the restaurant manager was clueless and no better . This restaurant will suffer the faith of Zengo because of poor service and the apathy of wait staff . We rather fly to Cabo for a true Richard Sandoval experience . We will not be coming back anytime soon . I thought RS trains his staff better.

Our first time at Toro. Very interesting Latin influenced menu. The salmon is excellent and well and uniquely prepared. It's served rare to medium-rare but melts in your mouth. I was not that hungry and ordered the fish tacos. (You get 3.) I think there was too much sauce as you could not really taste the fish. The shrimp tacos at True Food is much better.

We had ordered delivery from Toro since it opened, but had not been able to get in to the restaurant. WOW! Toro does not deliver all of its great food, because it might not travel well. You need to go in to experience the varied menu. We sat out on the patio (they will get those heaters working soon!), where we were served by Nicholas, a knowledgeable and friendly waiter. Our whole experience was great. There was a family enjoying the fireside table, and a lively group at another fireside table.

The entire staff went above and beyond for us! We don’t eat pork, so we asked for a substitution for a sauce, and the chef came out to personally help us. When we told him that we had visited the Toro in Cabo and we loved it, he sent out ceviche for us. On top of that, our server Keith was attentive and helpful. The GM came over to ask about our meal and continued to spoil us rotten. She offered us dessert and even a taste of tequila for my husband! Every dish was amazing, especially the dessert Pisco Natilla. Overall I am so sad that o don’t live in Denver, because I would be back often and for every special occasion.

The bites are delicious but pretty small in size. Ordered red velvet tres leche and to our surprise it was crunchy like an old cookie. The waitress apologized and switched it to another dessert, on the house. Another staff, probably the kitchen or restaurant manager came to apologize as well. I thought that was neat. Ambiance is great as always. Will definitely recommend this place.

I like TORO because of its menu. The octopus was amazing, the wine selection was really good, the ceviches were absolutely delicious, and the meat was really soft and tasty.
However, as every single restaurant in Denver, they have TVs on the walls, high unsophisticated music, and a really poor kids menu. I understand is not a family restaurant, but we're condemning our kids to be macaroni and cheese consumers since early ages. My daughter loves the octopus and they serve it without spices.

The food was outstanding! Creative combinations, interesting flavors, beautiful presentations. The salmon dish is incredible! The service however was amateurish at best. Starting with the hostess “with an attitude”, to seating us at rickety swap meet outdoor table in the far back corner, to having us move ourselves to the new table at our request (ie: carry our own placemats, drinks, menus and silverware). We had to wait on drinks which came out wrong, wait on guacamole which was good when it finally came but ended with a disappearing waiter and no desert even offered until we chased down a waiter to request some. It’s a beautiful new restaurant but needs some staff training!

Food is excellent.

Two places for improvement.
1: The red wine was "room temperature"... which was 80 degrees and too warm (it was 90 degrees outside and the accordian glass doors were open). Could temp control their good wine list a bit better.
2: The hibiscus drinks they brought out to start were in dirty cups.

We were celebrating our anniversary, and everyone made it special for us. We received a complimentary toast and dessert at the end of dinner. We arrived during happy hour, so we ended up ordering four different appetizers and a cocktail. They arrived quickly and were all beautiful and delicious. After the appetizers, dinner was served promptly. There was a little mix up with an unfinished side dish that was discarded, instead it was meant to be boxed up and taken home. It was corrected quickly with a new one made up and boxed to go. Would definitely dine at Toro again!

Going forward, far better covering over the patio is going to be needed. Literally every table had problems and either moved chairs or moved tables. Easy fix. The weekend brunch is similar to their former Riverfront Park restaurant in that it is bottomless but served to your table. Choices are all fantastic though a bit limited. Perhaps that will change with time and the end, someday, of the COVID-19 restrictions. The downside to such serving is that you rely on the wait staff who are working all their station versus going up to a buffet line. But plan on enjoying your full 2-hour table limit, pacing yourself and it's a great experience. Especially if it's not in the upper 90's. Music, played by a DJ, is trying for a Vegas/Miami (where Toro Toro is located) vibe albeit no water here. A bit too loud for the crowd and area of town, at least in the day, but again, good attempt at creating something different.

Toro is my new favorite in Cherry Creek. The ceviche is incredibly bright and flavorful. The portion size for ceviche is small for sharing. The lobster quesadilla were just the right amount of savory with the sweetness of the lobster. The bison skewers were cooked perfectly and the tuna tacos were spectacular. The restaurant has a cool vibe if that’s possible during COVID. Hats off to the chef and the team at Toro!

We have been in here 4 times already this month, we love it, however this time I was very disappointed. We requested a patio sofa seating, and they had to move us two times, until they told us a sofa patio table was available, so I do not understand why we did not get it in the first place! Their instagram page, as well as the e mail they sent out clearly stated that brunch was 10 am to 4pm , We went there around 2pm, and unfortunately at 3 pm we were told Brunch was over, even when I should our waiter and showed him, he assured me it was a mistake and did not honor the 4pm brunch. His service was great so we did not make a big deal, however yesterday and today they keep advertising brunch until 4pm, so it is obviously not a mistake and the brunch does end at 4pm, which actually does make me very upset because they ruined my birthday brunch. I called yesterday to bring this to their attention and the assistant manager assured me the GM would call me to fix this...I never got a call. In this case I do rate my experience poorly and I feel we got treated unfairly, unfortunately the value of what we paid was not what we got.
