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.
Everything was fantastic, as always! The food was amazing and the staff is always welcoming, kind, and attentive.
Toro is an outstanding Ibero-American fusion tapas restaurant with a winning bar program... Its industrial-chic setting is fashionable without being fussy, a total chill vibe... In spite of all this, the food is still the star of the show... The greatest hits of Spanish tapas are on parade with the occasional Mexican street food thrown in to keep you guessing... The staff was warm and friendly, from the bartender who joked with us to the server that kept my glass of cava full at all times (very important!)... Toro is top notch and I am bidding at the chance to return ASAP! ❤️
Great spot on the west side. We had an early dinner (6:15p) and it wasn't as crowded as I thought it would be. Food was delicious, especially the iberico ham. Can't recommend that enough. Ambiance was very nice too. The restaurant has a lot of windows so there's a good amount of natural light. All in all, this is a great place to have lunch/dinner if you're around the area and want an upgrade from Chelsea Market.
Corporate Cool, i.e., It's not Cool at all. Shabby place, way to load audio. Food and drinks are good. There are now allot of restaurants of this type in NYC. I doubt the owners ever are there. The environment is fabricated without any originality. It is not a condusive place for conversation. It seems it is designed for the "Bridge and Tunnel" crowd.
The service was great. A lot of different servers checking up on us with everything. Service was on point. Compared to the service, food wasn’t that great. Tapa portions were a good size. The Red Sangria was too watery for me. Good drink selection though!
Great sommelier and diverse range of Spanish and French wine!
Service staff was great, awesome wine list, food was well seasoned, cooked properly, texturally pleasing, and visually appealing!
Have been to this place several times but here is my review as of now:
- Good place for group hangout night. It gets pretty loud.
- Foods are good but some of them are too salty.
One bad experience: Reserved the table in advance and the host tried to get us to the table located at the entrance where people constantly go in&out. We asked her if there is any other seat inside but she persisted that the table she got us is only available. I went into restroom and saw many empty spots, wow. Maybe they didn't want us to sit there for some specific reasons?
Joseph- the manager was overly accommodating. Very nice experience!
Great food. The mushroom dish and eggplant dish were amazing! The drinks were fun, creative and tast. The duck drumettes were good but very overpriced.
I love this place! It never disappoints. The cocktails are great. The food is amazing. The staff is first rate, good looking, and fun!
Was there for my birthday dinner. Great, lively ambiance. Service was excellent. Food was very good. Although you know going into it tapas will be small, pretty expensive. But worth the visit.
Great experience in a wonderful place, top notch food, Matts service was spotless fun and very professional.
Will definitely be back with more friends.
The food was amazing. We order small plates and they come out one by one. Allowing to us enjoy each dish.
It was my birthday meal. I love this place. The food is really good. However today the service was less than previous visit. The first time I came here I was blown away by service this time it was ok.
From the Tuna Tartar to the Paella. Outstanding. Although I'm a rap fan, I would suggest I different style of music, at least for early dining.
The food is inventive, gutsy and delicious. The noise level however makes it nearly impossible to hear a thing, at least on a weekend evening. Would never go back for that reason.
I love this place. Food is delicious and service was absolutely outstanding.
It isn’t your standard tapas place. Well prepared, elaborated and surprising dishes. We tried several plates (cheese, chorizo, octopus, duck drumsticks,...), quality ingredients. Rose sangria is delicious. I will be back!
Thank you guys, we had a lot of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great friendly service and the food was great, you just have to know what dish is popular. The ribeye was the popular dish, the meat is dender and the glazed sauce gave an extra flavor to the meat.
Excellent food, especially the charcuterie plate. The cocktails were fairly good, which is surprising for a tapas restaurant (wine is the usual go-to). Wine selection is excellent, but ordering most bottles is surprisingly pricey. Glasses of wine are also relatively expensive, even for NYC. The vibe was good, though a bit loud due to the size of the place. Seems like a good place to bring a date. The host was wonderfully accommodating to give us a table even though we had a party of three when another party of 4 cancelled their reservation. I'm happily surprised how accommodating they were so we could sit at a table rather than at the bar.
Great ambiance, bartender and food server were great. Diverse menu, many interesting items. A bit overpriced, tapas sized portions are such that you need to order a few. Wine and cocktail prices also a bit high.
Service was good but food was not great and way overpriced ! Will not come back.
Perfect Valentine’s Day date and preview for our trip to Spain.
Great flavor combinations and intentionally constructed dishes.
I must say it was a disappointing experience considering the reviews seemed pretty good. We were a party of 3, and they sat us at a small table for 2 with an extra chair on the side. Needless to say, this was a bit cramped with all the dishes we ordered and the restaurant was not even half full. The food was really mediocre at best and the Hamachi Crudo was not fresh. The Maiz Asado con Alioli y Queso Cotija came out overcooked and soggy and tasteless. There was nothing special about the ErizosbCon Caviar which seemed to be the specialty of the restaurant. It looked better in the photos and the taste was a bit bland. The other dishes were just ok, really nothing to rave about. The address of the restaurant is 85 10th Avenue, but it’s really on 11th Avenue and our driver was not able to find it and dropped us off on 17th Street & 10th Avenue.
Our reservation was at 9:00 and we were finally seated at 9:45. I realize that some tables linger but this was excessive. By the time we were seated, several of the tapas (our favorites) were no longer available which was very disappointing. The staff was very pleasant about it and tried to make it up but it was still a bust. And there are much more authentic tapas restaurants in NY that are much less expensive. Toro is pretty pricey. I do like the atmosphere at Toro but it doesn't compensate for the excessive wait beyond our reservation time, the so so food and the expense.
Fabuloso!! All the tapas are amazing! The ambiance great. Fun restaurant. Perfect for a date or with a group of friends.!
Spectacular food! The waiters do make you over-order though. They say you should do about 2-3 tapas per person plus paella for the table but it's a LOT of food. I would recommend 1 tapas per person if you're ordering the paella.
The place is beautiful, the service is good, the food is really good (specially the maiz asado and the goat cheese) and the drinks are delicious (the Spicy Gim is amazing). Highly recommend for a ladies night out.
Delicious food....second time here....place was empty this time....great place for group of friends or casual meal
We reserved a table and was told there was only bar seating. No one waited on us for the first 15 minutes. Another group was brought to the bar who was complaining they were supposed to have a table. We were asked to move our seats closer together so they could squeeze a friend in. We made it easy on them and left.
I do not recommend.
The food at toro is just perfect!
Absolutely excellent restaurant for great food and impeccable service. Everything on the menu was delicious with a special call out to their pork dishes. We literally couldn't eat another bite because we had 3 helpings of everything. The service made it a wonderful evening. I highly recommend Toro!
Food was just ok, our server was excellent, ambience was nice
Our waiter Alan was outstanding!!!
We had a great time! Restaurant was trendy, great service and the food was excellent! Highly recommend
Great dinner! Brought my sister from out of town here and we had a great time. Great drinks, sommelier is very knowledgeable, and the food is amazing!
Make sure you try the bone marrow :O
Great dinner and service.
