Nice dinner before catching a show. Did the family special with unlimited dishes. All dishes were awesome. Didn’t meet a single one we didn’t like. Excellent cocktails.

Pork Belly Benedict is not as good as it looks. The hard-boiled eggs destroy my experience. Churros was too soft to be like a stick shape,which is over sweet.

The food was good, however the drinks were not the best. The margaritas are not fresh made and the beers menu a little poor.
The waiter and the bartenders were nice.
The host not so much. We asked for a different table and she looked unhappy to help.

The beef short ribs are the best I have ever had. Lean tender full of flavor. The traditional guacamole is a must-have I could eat my weight in that

Took my mom out to lunch. The good was great! The waitress was great. We had the endless brunch. Everything was great. My suggestion would be for them to create and have more vegetarian options.

We were here during restaurant week so we had the family meal service. It was all you can eat for 35.00 a person. The waiter was very attentive and the manager even came to check on us to make sure we were enjoying our meal. The restaurant was very loud I think it was a combination of the music being loud and people trying to speak over the music. The next time we are in town we will definitely try to stop in again.

I celebrated my birthday at Toro Toro. They were very accomdating to my last minute reservtion needs. My only complaints are the establishment was pretty busy, which meant our server was often nowhere to be found or waiting on other tables. Also, our waitress was in training and she incorrecly process our bill. Other than these two minor issues, I had a great time celebrating my birthday at Toro Toro.

Good place for a drink and ceviche with friends. Empenadas and fish tacos were good too. Service was friendly. It doesn't have a very professional vibe but it's fun and casual.

There was nothing special about this restaurant! For this being my first time, the food was horrible! All of our first dishes came out COLD, and had to be sent back. The second round of dishes we had took even longer to come out! I would not recommend this place to anyone, nor go back.

We were a large group and chose the Menu de Familia - great value, the group didn't have to select their own meals, it was easy! And, so much food. Wow, more than we were expecting - plenty to have us more than full!

Me and a close friend of mine (that I’ve known since elementary school!) were having a little after the holidays catch up session. We both had a lot going on and the drinks/food here definitely released us! The food was delicious and the drinks definitely had a little kick to them lol. All of that is unlimited and it’s only $40! Totally worth the price!

Went for the bottomless brunch and the food was fantastic. Our waitress came and checked on us frequently, we never had to flag her down and she let us stay past the two hour limit so we could finish our drinks. The food is absolutely amazing! The huevos rancheros and empanadas were a table favorite. Amazing experience!

The service was slow; the food was bland; they erroneously charged my friend’s credit card and didn’t bother to mention that he would see a temporary charge. I should have stayed home and made eggs! They should rename the place to “Terrible Terrible!”

Toro Toro is always my spot to go! Had a family out of town and decided to go there for brunch. Service was on point, bartender made us the best cappuccinos we had in a while! We decided to do bottomless brunch and it’s really way to do it!

Toro Toro is one of my favorite places to gather with my group of friends. We celebrated my fiancé’s birthday (we were a group of 8) and the restaurant had our table ready. Half of my party was 20 min late, but we were seated anyways. We all enjoyed the Unlimited tapas menu. Delicious! We had a great time and the downstairs club had great music.

This new restaurant is still working out the details. It is beautiful and modern, but upon arrival, their system could not locate our reservation, despite multiple confirmations in advance. Nevertheless, we were accommodated. Service was slow, probably due to the holidays and small staff, but the restaurant wasn't full. All our meals were very good, but pricey. This place has potential, but may need to work on management.

Came with friends near the end of their brunch service. The wait staff was attentive and worked with us to get our orders in before the kitchen closed to prepare for dinner service. No matter whom we flagged down to get in some last-minute orders, including the hostess and host, everyone we dealt with was extremely polite and professional. This is a rare level of service in the area. We all did the bottomless brunch, and although some of the dishes were lacking, most of the options were flavorful and enjoyable. Would recommend.

The service was terrible. We asked 3 different servers for food and ended up with way more food than we asked for in the end. Highly disorganized service. The only thing that made up for it was that the food was delicious.
