The menu was innovative and exciting. The execution was less than that. The beef quality of the skirt steak and filet was definitely not up to the advertised Prime standard. The truffle fries were outstanding, as was the locally made ice cream. The Spanish Cava was great. We were outside so the noise was fine. The flashing lights in the bat mitzvah room next to us were a bit much. All in all, very good but not the extraordinary experience we were hoping for.

Very disappointed in my experience at Toro. I arrived early and was seated by the hostess to wait on my guests and actual dinning time, and I really appreciated that.

My server came up immediately and suggested he come back when my party arrived. Flustered, I agreed and then waited 25 minutes without him reproaching so I could order a drink + appetizer. He walked by severely times without acknowledgement to the point I felt awkward, and the restaurant was not full to capacity by any means.

Finally when we ordered entrees, I ordered the 30-day aged ribeye, and it was over cooked and has grizzle running thru it. I ordered a side of fries, which came soggy & not crisp. Really, none of the food was executed well and it’s a shame to spend $130 (pre-tip) on a meal for 1 person that was such poor quality.

The only good thing was our cocktail - great options. I love dining out but would not recommend Toro for anything but cocktails.

We waited 1 1/2 hours for our entrees then finally had to have them put it all in a take out bag and eat it at home.

Our "dine in" became "take-out" and we honestly enjoyed our food, however we weren't able to sit down and eat it until 10:30pm.

So our 7:15pm reservation turned into a 9:00pm take-out and a 10:30pm "angry meal" before bed.

They're fortunate we didn't stiff them but we didn't want to punish the staff for an evening ruined.

We dined outside for our 13th anniversary. The patio was wonderful. Before we even started the General manager came over, introduced herself and welcomed us. Seeing we have not been there before we asked for suggestions. We wound up putting our whole meal in her and the servers hands. They did not disappoint. Started with a spicy mule and Mercado margarita. Totally different yet refreshing and wonderful cocktails. For the appetizer they brought a mini portion of the smoked swordfish dip, sweet corn empanada, Octopus Anticucho and Amarillo Ceviche. The only one we didnt find special was the octopus, good yes special no. All the others were beyond compare and some of the best eats of this type we have had. Pretty obvious at this point we were getting full, but they preferred we try the Lomo Saltado, and are we glad they did. Our celebration was capped woo with a specially made Volcado De Pina, they had to make variations to it due to tastes and distates of ours, and not a word or denial. This restasurant was special, almost worth a drive from Chicago just to dine there. One of the best and unique restaurants we have dined at. Hats off to the Chef, General Manager and our server

Food and drinks were ok-once we got them. Service was unacceptable all the way around. Waited 10 minutes for water the first time and over two hours was refilled once. Good wait times were over 15 minutes. Our server was also a bartender , so I’m guessing that’s got something to do with the speed of food. But for a $50 brunch, it was embarrassingly bad. During the last 10 minutes we finally got some attention. Overall I don’t think I’d recommend anyone brunch here. The value is not with it.
