The service was very good. Our servers were cordial and responsive. The only downside is that the tortilla chips that were served with the guacamole were stale. Some of the worst chips I've had. This needs to be improved. The rest of the appetizers were delicious.

I love Toro! I have been a few times and will keep going back. The food is creative and delicious. I can’t say enough about that. It’s on the pricier side but it’s worth it. Drinks are very pricey. I love the location and the ambience. The staff is super friendly.

I celebrated my birthday at Toro hoping for a great experience, especially given the reviews. Unfortunately, only the food met our expectations, as the service was lacking the moment we entered the restaurant. First, despite my husband calling earlier in the week to make reservations and clearly indicating it was my birthday, when we arrived we were asked if we wanted a booth directly to the right of the entrance, where much of the foot traffic and noise was. This initial impression did not make me and my family feel special at all. Secondly, our server Jenna made it very clear that she did not want to be there. In fact, she didn't give us her name until prompted and was conspicuously absent for the majority of the evening. We had to ask for water and it took her 10-15 minutes to come back to our table after we had finished our meal . Her absence was even more frustrating when we saw her congregating at the bar with the other wait staff. These other wait staff were not any better, with simple manners being ignored. For example, when one of the waiters brought my drink, he very rudely reached over my husband and sat my drink on the table without acknowledging any of us. He simply walked off in silence. Additionally, when my husband was filling out the gratuity, this same man stared over his shoulder, making us all very uncomfortable. Given we were one of few, if not the only, Black faces in the restaurant, I couldn't help but feel that we were treated like second-class citizens due to our race. Needless to say, we will NEVER be back to patronize this establishment, and we will not be recommending it to anyone, Black or otherwise.

On behalf of our entire team at Toro, I’d like to extend our sincerest apologies that you were met with a far from an exceptional experience, especially for an occasion as special as your birthday. The matter has been escalated through the leadership team to address as a training opportunity. We understand your frustrations and your experience certainly does not align with our standards. We'd be humbled to invite you back as our personal guests. Thank you for your time to share this with us.

The food and staff are great, however the hardest working man and the most kind and generous person I’ve met so far is Pedro our water server. He needs a raise, I’ve been coming to Toro for awhile and I try and make sure I set in his area. He is always on point and takes care of whatever table’s he’s working. Pedro is my employee of the month if there is such a thing at Toro.

We had a great evening and Dinner at the Toro Latin Kitchen. Great outside seating, food was excellent and the staff very attentive. Keep in mind it is inside the Marriott, I didn't realize that when I booked it. That said this was not a normal hotel restaurant experience it felt like an upscale dining experience and we were treated like valued customers with trained wait staff. The bar atmosphere was fun and the place is hopping. We are local Colorado folks and we will be back!

Toro is a great date night spot! Definitely unexpected since it’s in a hotel lobby, but it had great drinks and great food. Only complaint was the amount of food for the cost with the prawns main course. Outside of that, the ceviche, burrata salad, skirt steak, and drinks were incredible.
