What Insiders Are Saying
Toca Madera, a healthy Mexican restaurant on a trendy stretch of W 3rd Street, is the place to go if you want a scene but you also want decent food.
My husband and I had a delicious meal and great cocktails! The ambiance is grown and sexy. Perfect for a summer date night.
Happy hour here is awesome on Taco Tuesday! The food here is always great and the drinks are awesome. Never had a bad experience here. Just make sure you have a reservation!
Everything was great! The food amazing the waiter very pleasant. The drinks were good. Also the ambience was very nice and clean. Will recommend this place to anyone who visits LA! 😊
What I like about Toca Madera is that they call a few hours prior, the day of, to confirm your reservation. Also, the whole party doesn’t have to be there to be seated. My reservation was for 8 and two people got there a little early and they were seated and were able to order appetizers. The other two, including myself, were a little late and was taken to our table right away.
Their vegan fajitas were really good. The wait staff was attentive, the food was great; didn’t take a long time to be brought out. It was an appropriate temperature (you’d be surprised at how many establishments bring out food thats cold). The Churro Sundae was able to be made vegan and was also sooo good.
We got our table and left outside to meet a friend when we came (5min) they gave our table to someone else, stating we are too busy! You cannot stay there for more than 2 hours, you have to eat and get out because they are too busy!!! Expensive place, food is OK, portions are small. I won't go back
Absolutely amazing!! The tostadas were to die for!
Very good In general! It would be nice if they validate parking though!
been trying to get in here forever, without success, and perhaps that heightened my expectations. food was good, service was good, prices not too over the top, but noise level was a bit oppressive. i took my wife and son here for my wife's birthday but could not really have a conversation due to noise level. that said, it was a cool place.
Very fun time! Food was great
Great food and happening bar. Music was awesome along with the guitar player who played to the music. Very cool
The restaurant is beautiful, the food was great. Everyone was attentive and super friendly except our actual server which was a bit disappointing. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.
EVERYTHING was absolutely AMAZING......hostess,bartenders, waiter & waitress, I mean I was so pleased with everything. Food was delicious, will definitely be back !
Everything was wonderful! We loved the food and ambiance!
Great date spot!
Horrible customer service. Waited two hours to be seated. Gave up because the hostess gave my table to a person that was popular.
Waited 40 min for a table and we had reservations.
80% of dishes we had were bland or inedible. The service was deplorable. We were ignored. The value was terrible. This is a pricey place so I give it 0 stars for value. The noice level in the dining area/bar was deafening. In the back dining room it was so bad I couldn’t hear the conversation of my table mates.
Best spot in LA! Great vibe, food and atmosphere.
I celebrated my Birthday at Toca Madera! My servers Al and Katilynn (who was in training) were great. Katilynn was very patient and attentive. The food was amazing and
I will definitely be back!
One of the Best Drinks in town. Definately worth a visit . Could do a little better on vegetarian Food but the overall experience was memorable. Our server was very polite, friendly with a pleasing personality and helped us with our drink and food selection.
My friends and I celebrated my birthday at Tocas Madera! Everything was excellent!! I will definitely return!!
Our server Ryan was amazing. Food came out before the drinks! Super fast.
My coworkers had dinner here and everything was scrumptious tasting so good. For appetizers we ordered queso fundido, and guacamole. Everyone got an entree starting with carne asada, cooked to perfection came with salsas and hand made tortillas. Tacos de tinga were delicious and also the ceviche with coconut shavings. The drinks are so bomb they’re not stingy with their liquor, i highly recommend this place. It’s a great place to hang out and enjoy drinks while the DJ plays house music.
Would definitely recommend. Really nice atmosphere although be ready that it's not a quiet place, it's more upbeat. As long as you know that prior, it's great. Lighting is dim which is nice, food is really good and price is decent as well. Servers were very on it, space was nice too, not too tight. I would recommend it
Ryan was a Rock Star, thanks bro for a awesome time!
Food and drinks were SUPERB. Really great selection of vegetarian/vegan food, too.
Cocktails and food were really good but our waitress was awful. Had to ask another waiter for water after she didn't get any for us when we said we did want some. Saw her maybe twice the entire dinner while other waiters and waitresses went to other tables several times. After we were done eating and had to wait another 40 mins for our check when we had to asked another waiter for it, then our waitress dropped it off rudely. Just bad luck with the staff I suppose.
Great food. Attentive, friendly service. Our waitperson offered delicious recommendations. Save room for dessert!
Per usual the good and ambiance were great - the only negative was this time our server forgot about water/drinks and our food arrived prior to and beverages.
I love Toca Madera so very much. Everything about the experience is always stellar!
Always a favorite LA location - prices high but it’s a great spot and I always leave happy!
The staff was very accommodating with seating. They even greeted my husband with birthday wishes and I found that very thoughtful.
Great food and ambiance. Our server April was excellent and took the time to explain the menu.
Definitely going back.
staff very friendly!...……………………………………………………………..,,
This is a fun place, music is good, nice size crowd, food and drinks were also good, but for what you got it was a little on the expensive side.
It’s was a bit loud if you plan on talking business or on a date. If not, it definitely has the music turned up for your liking
Awesome staff, great ambiance and delicious food! Made this special occasion exceptional.
Only waited a few minutes after checking in. Waiter was nice, table was nice, just a loud atmosphere & really strong drinks. No complaints tho.
An old friend was in from Switzerland on business and wanted to meet up and bring his associates.
I love the guacamole here!!! The ambience is great as well, and the serving sizes are perfect.
