Pretty awesome place. Beautiful interior, friendly service, excellent food without breaking the bank. A little too loud, but not overwhelmingly so.

Food is overpriced, was told the table would be held for 15 minutes but was told I was 10 minutes late and still made to wait for a table we were all standing around. It was not cold inside despite the harsh conditions out. Tables really close together, was hit twice by other patrons

Wonderful food! We sat at the chef counter and had a wonderful conversation with the chef about the food and the city. We’ve been to the one on Boston a few times but this location in NYC is much larger. Love the ambiance!

Always a must for me and my team to come and enjoy the food here. The attention to detail is inspiring. The food, nuances and flavor are spot on. Magnificently executed. The wine menu is curated fabulously, and the service is first class. Always make it a point to make this one of my go to's while in NYC

Loved this restaurant as an early meal before seeing a show. We had the shrimp, goat cheese, steak, brussel sprouts and hamachi between 2 people. I would skip the hamachi next time since it didn't necessarily fit with the palette of the other dishes but everything was delicious and beautifully plated!

The menu was very creative, and packed a lot of flavor. Service was attentive throughout the dinner, even as the dining room started getting crowded. One interesting observation was how quickly the tapas came out. I'm not an expert on tapas restaurants, but each plate came out one by one. Literally minutes after one plate was at or near finished, the next plate would come. Personally, I would have been fine with more than one plate on the table so we could take our time sampling, but I guess the kitchen had a different philosophy? The open dining room was understandably noisy when near capacity, but not so noisy that we couldn't speak across the table. Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone interested in some quality creative tapas.

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.
