Toro Loco is amazing! We had a 1:15 reservation and got there a little late, they were cool about it and sat us right away! We went here for a small bday party and had a blast! If you are looking for the best of a both worlds when it comes to a chill saxophone brunch while you eat but when you are finished around 3pm the show starts and it is drinks!! Shows!!! Dancing!! Celebrating!! Just Damn great fun!! Need is say the food is amazing and soooo are the drinks!!! Nothing was disappointing about Toro Loco!! We will be back with a bigger party!!!

Went for drag brunch with bottomless - drag show was entertaining but the food was not very good at all.

Restaurant is super cute - the decor, vibe, food and drinks were all great. As a Latina, I was especially psyched to see that all the employees were bilingual and bicultural Latinos like me. I'll definitely be back.

Thought it was great, but very noisy. Coukd not engage in conversation without talking loud or leaning in. I would still recommend as it was good and the service. Good too. Just prepare for it to be loud.

Went to the restaurant on my wife’s 50th birthday , service was poor with shared starter delivered at time of three of the four main meals . Then waited about 20 minutes for the last of the main courses . Good not as described . Wouldn’t recommend .

Food was great! The guacamole was very good as was my chicken quesadilla. I had the smoke show cocktail, which I’d give 3.5/5 stars

I love mexican food in all forms, from cheapo food truck to artisanal gourmet, and everything in between, and I am NOT picky, but IMO there are 3 basic things that you must get right to be an acceptable mexican restaurant in NYC: 1) margaritas 2) nachos and 3) tacos. im disappointed to report toro loco does not deliver on any of these. 1) the margarita was definitely made with a bottled mix: the taste of artificial sweetener/weird chemical flavor was obvious. 2) the nachos came in a bowl and were crumbled and soggy, and there was very little cheese. it was like a bowl of nacho cereal. 3) they redeemed themselves a bit with the pork taco as the pork was flavorful and roasted nicely. but they dont offer flour tortillas for tacos?! so, fail. also my husbands chimichanga was soggy, with a weird cheese sauce on top of it that ruined it and the cocktails are just bizarre and gross...they are all made with foam and combine flavors like
smoked cinnamon and strawberry (so gross). everything is just a little off. its a great location with great decor so if the food and drinks were better it would go a long way.

I've been to Toro Loco two times already and I loved it both. Their food is fresh, flavorful. Drinks are strong and delicious and the servers are pretty attentive even when it's busy. Has quickly become my go-to spot in FiDi

Convenient to my hotel and really fun decor. Service was great and they made my drink to order. The fish tacos were a bit of a disappointment though. Not nearly fills enough with fish or vegetable toppings. And fish was over cooked.

The food here is really not special at all. So many better Mexican spots within a short walk. It’s really only good for sitting outside. Go for an outdoor table, not for the food.

Had a 2:00 reservation and was instructed to get there at 1:45 to be seated prior to the start of the show. Was not seated until almost 2:30 because our table was not ready. Took close to 20 minutes for a server to even check on us. Our group chose the bottomless option but was only visited about 3 times total the entire time we were there and most certainly did not get our money’s worth. Gratuity was included as well. Would not have tipped nearly as much since the service was so poor. Priority was more on larger groups than our group. If you have a large group I recommend this place because you will get your money’s worth and be treated better than a group of 7. Was overall not pleased at all.

This is a good lunch spot in fidi. It’s typically empty around noon so you can get in and get out pretty quickly. The tortilla soup is delicious but rather small.

Hey Bryan, Thank you for your review. Our drag show starts at 2pm and I see your reservation was at 11:30am. I do apologist if our advertising was misleading in any way or if you were given incorrect information. Our drag show is very popular and I hope you stop in again soon to see it. Best, Tony Curran General Manager

The location seems nice and relaxing but the food quality not so great. As an authentic Mexican I wouldn't recommend this place. If you want to have a quick snack and drinks then I think this place will be good.

Food, drinks, and service was really good! The restrooms were not clean at all though, I actually skipped going just because of how unclean it was.
The hostess that was supposed to greet us at the door, let us wait for app. 3 min before she acknowledged us, because she was busy talking and laughing with friends, even though she was right there and I know she saw us standing there. Not a great first impression..

While I was hoping to take the opportunity to write a good review on this restaurant, unfortunately I was generally disappointed.
I made Saturday reservations for 2 at 12:30pm and arrived to a empty restaurant at 12:15. The hostess had me reserved for a table right at the front, next to the door - the only table in this area. When I requested to be moved to a different table in the main seating area as I saw the restaurant was empty, she said she had to discuss with the manager.
The manager proceeds to tell me, quite rudely, that they were incredibly busy that day and should I choose to move to a different table I would not be allowed to stay any later than 1:45.
Once again since clearly I had the first reservation of the day in an empty restaurant this did not make sense to me, especially the attitude of the manager.
Once seated my friend and I did manage to enjoy meal. The food was alright, neither exceptional nor horrible. Our server was great, absolutely no complaints about him.
Throughout the hour and a half we managed to stay at this table we saw 3 larger parties (6-8 people) trickle in and another 2 person reservation, still the tables were not full. After we had paid the check, the manager finally comes up to say we could stay longer, to which I replied "we're leaving."
I would not recommend this restaurant. There are plenty of other restaurants you in the area where you can get a bottomless experience while not being treated as a nuisance by the manager. I would recommend, better planning the dining area to accommodate small and large parties.

My wife and I visited on 31 Dec around lunch time, I think it was opening time. Naturally, the place was slow, but picked up as we concluded our meal. Its a nice hole in the wall type place. The inside is comfortable and the staff was polite. Keep in mind that our priority was to have something spicy due to the previous night...lol - So we started with drinks, naturally, and went for the micheladas, they're not on the menu ;^) - But they are deliciously spicy! Highly recommended. If you're not used to the heat, probably want to let them know. We also shared appetizers, the food came quick and was delicious. I recommend it, and if I'm in part of town again, I will definitely return.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. we ordered a drink tower and quest to start out and we ended up leaving after taking a couple sips out of each drink and the queso. The drinks seemed to be more flavor than alcohol and the queso tasted like flour was mixed in it, the texture was not like cheese at all. I wanted to like this place. Our waitress was really nice, and the restaurant/bar was pretty. The queso was the main reason we left and didn't order entrees.

This place is a bit overrated. The option of bottomless brunch for food and drinks for just $50 seems like a good deal but the quality of food isn’t the best. They bring out several small plates but none of them taste great leaving you satisfied or wanting more. The drinks were well made and enjoyable. My friends and I went for Sunday brunch and was not aware that there was a drag show. If that is not your scene than you won’t enjoy it at all. The music was incredibly loud to the point it induces headaches so if you’re looking for a brunch spot to talk with your friends this isn’t it. When my friends and I were there, there were young adults dancing on the tables after eating their brunch so like I stated earlier if this isn’t your scene you won’t have the best time. All in all I’d rate this place a 2 out of 5. The breakfast nor the drag queen show was enjoyable for the price.

Why no points? I don’t know why I didn’t get any points for dining here??? The margaritas were very good, as was the guacamole and the steak and pork taqueria. The server brought chicken instead of steak, but quickly rectified it. I’d certainly be back if the restaurant provided Open Table points.

Good vibe to the restaurant. It was more of a bar than a restaurant. We were unable to book a table for 8pm for 3 people so booked it for 9pm but when we got there, the place was empty.
