Toro NYC is a bigger, louder, more party-time version of the Boston original. Hit it for the scene and a spoonful of uni, ham, and caviar.

Food and ambiance were great. The drinks from the side bar could have been better. All in all, a great place to gather with friends and some fantastic paella!

Great cocktails and rose sangria. Twist on classic Spanish fare. Small portions for the price (tortilla) but Brussels sprouts were excellent and a good size, the pulpo is great with the charred onions and the smoked duck drummettes are a cool spin

The portions were so small, it was too loud and was not even crowded, plus we were shoved in an area that was very crowded right near the bar and next to another loud table. It was an overall not great dining experience.

The best! Ken Oringers Toro never fails. Food is great as is the service. That I can pay off open table ap is a definite plus. Don’t skip the paella or the dessert. I recommend ordering everything. If it sounds tasty it is at Toro.

Tasty tapas in a cold, industrial chic environment with an overenthusiastic waitstaff.

Pros: the food was very good; I especially loved the dried Japanese seaweed (?) that was added to the hamachi crudo. Reception didn't give us any grief about being late to our reservation (there were still lots of empty tables).

Cons: the portions were very small for the price (you could easily spend $100/person here to fill up), the bumping hip-hop was a jarring contrast with the low-light industrial chic, and the A/C was set way too low. We also had 3 (or maybe even 4?!) waitstaff come by to check on us, ask for our order, and bring us the wrong drink (twice!) -- I actually never figured out who our waiter was supposed to be.

At the end of the day, the food is not so mind-blowingly amazing that it justifies the atmospheric issues, let alone the price.

This a fun, lively restaurant ideal for large groups. The music is great, the food is above average (what is with the salt in New York restaurants today, seasoning does not mean more salt) and there is a very attractive bar. The service was efficient but at times intrusive. Nevertheless l will go there again.

Annie was a wonderful server. My 14 year old daughter enjoyed the tapas as it reminded her of Barcelona. The paella was a little bit too much on the moist side (than the Boqueria ones in Barca) but full of flavor and meats! The bone marrow was to die for and the gambas was so creamy delicious! Expensive but worth it on special occasions.

Overall a nice experience. We visited early on a Sunday so it was quiet and the food arrived very quickly. The food quality and presentation were very nice. But we weren't blown away with the portion size (and yes I realize it's tapas) or overall flavor for the price. I think I'd try the Paella next time and just a few tapas.

We had a party of 4, arrived 15 min late for the reservation and was told that they need to get the table back in 1 hr 45 min. Although we finished 30min b4 the time, I felt really rushed start my experience at Toro with a time limit in my mind. I have been here 3 times and never told such thing. By the time we were leaving, there were lots of empty tables. FYI we were the first ones to be in the restaurant.

Thought we'd try this place after seeing decent reviews on opentable.

Despite it's location on the Westside Highway, it was very lively and buzzy inside. The ambience was great and the place was full.

Service was ok, if a little unattentive at times. The tapas brought out in order of when it is ready. The first wave was very prompt, but there was a half an hour gap for the rest, which wasn't great.

The cold tapas was good. The cooked tapas wasn't so good. Cocktails were great.

I'd probably come back in a group, but there are better tapas spots in NYC.
