What Insiders Are Saying
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.
We had a pleasant meal with friends who also seemed to enjoy the experience. Menu featured some typical tapas, and some creative new ideas. Most were very good (I found the tortilla espaniol disappointing).
I had read that it tended to be noisy which it may be on a busy night given the hard surfaces and high ceilings, but we were there on a monday when the place was almost empty.
Service was good - never too far away, but not hovering.
The entry is not particularly well marked if you arrive after dark
Great birthday dinner
It was phenomenal. It is really hard to find such a good variety of quality food in any restaurant. Good value too, considering what you are getting! One of the few places I will keep coming back to.
We ate at the bar. The bartender was great. We ordered the octopus, fennel salad and tuna tartare. All of them delicious! Great restaurant for big groups and special event.
Well at 10.30 was empty they started to clean while we were eating the one in Boston in 100000000 better second time in this location second disappointment
Paella was not that good.
Fun for date night but didn't think food was worth the price. Very fun atmosphere!
Cool spot. Great vibe, lively but not loud. Food was awesome, terrific service and we were not rushed despite a busy Saturday night crowd.
Excellent food and service. We have several different food allergies in our group and our waiter took them all very seriously and guided us through the menu with pleasure. Service like this is greatly appreciated and we all enjoyed everything we ate immensely!
Good and efficient service, food came quickly. Staff were super friendly
This was our first time at Toro's and we went with friends who enjoy as much as we do to share plates. The hostess was borderline rude and told us how long we were supposed to eat, meaning occupy the table. If it had been just my wife and I, we would have turned around on our heels. The waiting staff was friendly and attentive. The food was great, but not surprising and thus fairly pricey. We lived in Barcelona, Spain for a decade and have experienced authentic tapas, fideua and paella. Toro's does a great job, and it's a wonderful venue to even meet with a larger group, but it's not to be considered authentic.
Not the most creative Tapas menu I have experience, but what they offered was well done.
Good food. Not life changing. Nice space. Purposely went early to avoid noise. (Can imagine that space gets very loud later on in an evening.) Wait staff fine; a little too cool to care about you, but smooth service.
Given how expensive he meal was, the food wasn’t as great as I expected. Nothing to be wowed by. The matcha ice was probably the best thing I ate there
My husband picked out this restaurant for my birthday dinner and it was the best find! From the small plates to the entree everything and I mean everything was delicious. Matt was our waiter and he was AMAZING and very attentive. For my birthday they gifted us one of their hot tapas "Patatas Bravas" and omgosh we were drooling. I highly recommend this place. We will definitely be back!
We were especially impressed with our wait staff, who gave us excellent guidance with the menu. She went out of her way to hand mark each dish on the menu that was gluten free. She then came back and described how, when there is an allergy, they vet the dishes through the senior cooking staff, to ensure they are safe for the person with the allergy. She was great and suggesting how much food we should have. We loved the seafood and vegetarian paella, and the tapas were all excellent. We had a great table, and were allowed to remain as long as we wanted.
It was amazing. Insanely good food.
Unfortunately, the service was not as good as we remembered. The runners were a little rude throwing the used utensils on the table when clearing the dishes instead of replacing everything or gently placing them on the table and clearing. Then we asked for more bread and they ran out so we had to finish the dishes without bread which at a tapas restaurant is unacceptable. The duck was slightly over cooked and tasted only of the bbq sauce which is very very spicy. You could not appreciate the flavor of the duck. Lastly, we found The wine list to be incredibly expensive and unattainable. Being in the industry we know what the prices of most are and we understand restaurants mark up but we found it unnattainabke. We would’ve easily had 2-3 bottles had there been at least one reasonably priced option ($25) so it’s very possible you might be losing out on potential revenue.
Great food but we were not prepared for the club atmosphere with large noisy parties and loud music. We had a reservation and still had to wait awkwardly at the crowded bar for 10 minutes. We almost bailed but in the end the food was good which was redeeming.
Frustrating that we had a reservation but had to wait 10+ min to be seated.
Food & presentation was fantastic!! We did 4 small tapas and a 2 person paella for 4 people (the right amount of food)
Waitress was okay (didn’t see to have a great knowledge of menu or allergies. She suggested 2-3 tapas per person and that seemed like a lot of food) but also maybe working too many tables (so a front end staff issue?)
The water server was awesome — never had an empty class
Would definitely return
Great selection of tapas, good sangria, interesting fusion of Spanish and Asian flavors, great music, good service.
Second time going to Toro, amazing food, awesome music (90's early 00's hip hop) and delicious drinks. Will be coming back again soon.
Some meals were terrible, some were good. Not worth the price at all
One of the best dining experiences I've had in NYC! Incredible food with good portions and beautiful presentation. Wait staff was super friendly and informative, loved our server Ava and the excellent attention she paid to us. Will definitely be recommending to friends and absolutely will be returning here next time I'm I'm NY.
Food was horrible, even tho I’m familiar and love tapas style, this place has to have the worst food in the entire meat packing district. We went there for the bone marrow dish, and let me tell you this, PLEASE DO NOT ORDER. My drink the rosé sangria was awful, the ice in it if you can call it ice was melted. Overall I do not recommend it at all!
Tapas authentic and good
Food arrived quickly as we finished tapas dishes new ones arrived.
Very noisy and tables close together. For a young crowd.
The food is very bad prepared. The music is too loud to chat
Food here was excellent. Server knowledgeable about gluten allergy (asked about soy sauce, which was an ingredient in one of the dishes that had otherwise sounded GF, and kitchen was able to make its make without the soy sauce and still tasted great). Ambiance lacks a bit to be desired in my opinion — super high ceilings, industrial feel, not very intimate. But wouldn’t stop me from going back! It was delicious.
This is a great location for a business meal. The tapas menu is great for sampling and allows everyone at the table to try new dishes and helps to break down any walls when meeting new clients. The staff was amazing as they coached us through every step of the meal - offering insights as to how many dishes to order at each course so we wouldn't wind up with too much or too little food. A great experience overall!
The ambiance at Toro was very nice. Lovely decor and festive feel. Our waitress was friendly and informative regarding the menu and bar selections. We ordered a number of Tapas... cold and hot. Unfortunately, we found the Tapas plates to be very small esp for the price being charged. We ordered 2 of the hot sandwiches and both were mostly bread. The Pulpo was barely a tentacle and a bit over cooked. I might consider going back for a drink in the future, but eat my meal elsewhere.
Disappointed with the paella, shrimp gambas and the pork secreto
The food was great but we had several issues with service throughout our meal.
The food quality and service was exceptional. It is not a formal place, but it is great value.
We sat at the kitchen counter and enjoyed watching the 2 chefs “dancing” around the grill and the stoves.
The tuna tartare is tasty, we also like the aïoli shrimps.
Will definetely come back for a large group dinner.
Excellent tapas here. We especially loved the octopus & the tuna tartare.
I went for my birthday.
everything we ordered was delicious, and dont miss the drink in the grapefruit!
They had to be reminded that my Neice was celebrating a special occasion.
My husband and I came here for our anniversary. I did let the restaurant know about my various food allergies. We met with the manager when we arrived and she was extremely accomodating and made our experience so delicious and memorable. Thank you to the wonderful women at Toro.
