From our host to the wonderful wait staff, the experience was delightful! Attentive and knowledgeable about what to eat and drink, the meal was scrumptious. Everything tasted amazing. Really appreciated the dining experience!

First time, brunch menu is limited to mostly eggs dishes, the other items were ok, nothing truly inventive. The bottomless brunch is a good deal, if you’re really hungry or in a big group. Place is loud, lots of large groups so you can’t expect anything else.

I came here for my birthday on a Sunday for Brunch!
I highly recommend Toro Toro for brunch!
My friends & I loved it!
I chose this place based off of other reviews & I have to say everything was spot on.
The food was delicious.
The drinks were fun & delicious.
The service was good! I believe the server’s name was Roberto or Alberto? He did a great job, dealing with my girl friends & I!
We had a lot of fun.
Everyone around us at other tables seemed to be having a good time too!
I work in the restaurant industry, so I pay attention to things alittle differently when & wherever I go out... for here, I can truly say I had a great birthday here!
I definitely would come back & will be coming back!

I read through reviews before coming here and the service was extremely disappointing. I came gonna date and chose the la familia option (all you can eat and chose the all you can drink option as well) as it had positive reviews. We stayed the full 2 hours only because the service was so bad. After sitting it took the server 20 minutes to take our first order, he apologized and stated they were recording for film and that was pulling him away. The server took forever to bring anything we ordered, and never brought multiple dishes that we ordered over the 2 hour period. It took an average of 30 minutes to get anything we ordered. The dishes that were meant to be warm or hot were always cold, it was the biggest disappointment I have had in DC to date. So to sum it up for the price (roughly 150 before tip for two this is definitely not worth it)

Great time with a great friend eating great food.

The guacamole con atun is perfection.
The roasted beets are expertly balanced with the goat cheese and apple.
The arroz chaufa is heavenly!

Excellent food very tasty and interesting combinations, fabulous waitress with positive vibe although the bar was extremely loud during happy hour & the back of the restaurant was closed for a “photo shoot.”

La Bamba – desert is definitely worth a try if you have more than two people.

Pricey for the size of the plate but everything was delicious. Service was just OK. It felt like the waitress was trying to turn over the table as fast as possible. The place is very very noisy

Expensive small plates (and mains) with very little protein mixed in. e.g. the octopus main had only a single tentacle, there was hardly any fish in the ceviche and the green salad at $10 was as interesting as a chain restaurant's standard $3 side salad. Flavors were good, but after a very slow $140 meal my husband and I were still hungry when we got home.

Great experience. We arrived early for dinner reservations. The hostess suggested we enjoy happy hour in the bar. Great drinks, great prices. Once seated we enjoyed a great wait staff experience as well as great food. We did select one item, short rib tacos, that didn't live up to our expectations. Overall, an excellent choice for dinner.

The service here was amazing! Best bottomless brunch service I’ve had in DC. Before our drinks were empty, our server was asking us if we wanted another. The food was great as well! I will definitely be going back!

Brunch was AMAZING! The food was amazing and they took their time to create each plate. They seemed to have really kept the quality of food although everything was bottomless. The service was also amazing! I never knew brunch could be that organized. LAURA was a great server and very attentive. We literally could not get to the bottom of our drinks Or food if we wanted too haha. My group eats and drinks a lot and she was able to keep up quite nicely. Can’t wait to go back! Nice job TORRO TORRO.
