What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

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.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Such a shame this beautiful place served one disappointment after another in terms of the taste of the food. Each dish was either dramatically oversalted or tasteless. The service was outstanding and the atmosphere is fantastic, however. After we finished our bottle of wine, we needed to leave and cleanse our palates with dessert elsewhere.

Superb food, prepared and plated well. Our waitress was wonderful and the assistant general manager, Joseph, was helpful, knowledgeable and fun. The only negative was that as more patrons arrived it got VERY noisy, so much so we had difficulty talking across the dinner table. Overall great dining experience..

This was our first visit to Toro in NYC. We are from Boston and have been to the Boston location. We will return to both locations. Great selection of Tapas, plus many other menu options. Alcohol is a little pricy, even for NYC, but the food and atmosphere are worth it.

The sure thing has lost its way. Hostesses not customer focused and delivered brisk attitude. Servers very friendly and attentive. Service was rushed and it wasn’t even busy. Food preparation and quality tasted like an institutional assembly line. Severely overpriced for what was delivered. Many better choices -especially when a dinner for two comes in at $187, and then you have to tip on that. Will never return. AVOID.

Sat at counter expecting a Barcelona style experience. Not even close. Food is fair, this open kitchen is a turn off staring at back of restaurant.
Waitress was young and inexperienced. Didn’t know the menu and was interrupting all dinner grabbing drinks that were still working. An awful experience.

Everything about our experience was good. It was pre Mother’s day dinner with my son. There was only 1 dish that we wouldn’t order again, not that it wasn’t good it just wasn’t special. The Foie Gras was the best I’ve ever had. Abalone, Hama Hama clams & Grilled Octopus are just a few of the dishes we had and would order again. Our server Elise was wonderful and made the evening that much better. We will definitely be returning .

The space is airy and eclectic, beautiful...

The service is very good but confusing..way to many people, as one person might provide you with a plate while another server would take it right back...

The food was delicious & original but don't go there hunger as it is not a traditional sit down serving size.

Fantastic paella! Drinks are good too. Would recommend getting only the big paella to really enjoy it instead of getting starters and the half portion. My boyfriend and I had a pitcher of sangria and 2 half portions of paella, 1 wasn’t enough! Can’t wait to go back

Excellent food and the service was some of the best I've had in months.

Really enjoyed the gambas, thai-inspired hanger steak.

Music was way too loud though!

Everything that makes tapas so special shines at Toro. Wave after wave of flavor hits you as each small plate arrives. The more flashy dishes play well, but it’s the simple ones like the crushed tomato pincho, the croquettes, and the roasted eggplant that really are delicious and beautiful.

Thanks to the great staff for an amazing dinner

The tapas are really just average for the most part. Except for certain expensive items which are not meant for sharing, the rest of the dishes are just ok. Service is pretty good though.

I’ve been dining at Toro for so many years but this time it was such a awful experience. The restaurant was empty and service was so bad I couldn’t even believe it. Server took 10 minutes to greet the table and she didn’t even recommended anything, just asked what kind of water we would like. Food took so long that we were lack of appetite anymore. Then another server approached to our table asking if everything was great and of course we told him that everything actually was a completely mess. I love dining at Toro but this time was awful. By the way the Gambas were extremely salty. Impossible to eat. Very very bad. Not coming again

With all the options for dining available in NYC, this is our favorite go-to for everyday dining. Food is creative and delicious and the wine list is excellent. Even the wines by the glass are impressive. Highly recommend for a small group so you can order a broad selection of tapas.

Food was outstanding. One of the many things I love about Toro is each time I come back (and I'll keep coming back) there are always not only favorites and signature dishes that remain on the menu (maybe the best tuna tartare in town) but also always enough new and interesting options that it's hard to decide (white asparagus with duck tongue and goat butter, anyone? -- delish). Can never get bored here -- thank you!
