Toledo Restaurant has been serving patrons of NYC and beyond for over thirty years. Since its inception in 1975, we have been recognized as "serving the city's best Spanish" (The New York Post). Many have come to call us "classic, old-world and handsome" (Zagat 99, 01, 02), decorated in Spanish artifacts from all parts of Spain like Toledo, Sevilla, Madrid, and even Galicia. When you come to Toledo you can expect reliable and consistent food and service, whether it is to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, family reunion, host a company Christmas party or a baby shower.

Toledo is located in the heart of Murry Hill on 36th Street. The dining rooms are large and welcoming. The octopus and shrimp appetizer sautéed in garlic and oil was excellent. Very tasty and flavourful. For entrees we had the traditonal Paella and Lamp Chops. Both were great choices.

One of our favorite places and the first we returned to for indoor dining. Elegant atmosphere and attentive service. Food is excellent, but a little pricy. A perfect place for a special occasion or just to feel special.l

This place never fails. They go the extra mile in trying to ensure a delightful evening. As long as you are okay with a healthy dose of garlic in your life then worth being on the pricey side.

Toledo and it’s staff were very accommodating for our large party. We were there for a bachelorette, and they treated us to a surprise dessert and shots at the end of our meal. The food was delicious, and service was excellent. They even helped one of the girls in our group find a private room in the hotel to pump.
I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Excellent service! The food was authentic. Great wine selection. I also love the fact that the tables are a good distance apart. I prefer only to hear the conversations at our own table.
Thank you to the staff of a Toledo for a memorable evening!

Two of my friends and I arrived at the restaurant for a noon reservation prior to going to the theatre. It was a very brisk December day befitting a post-Thanksgiving Saturday. The atmosphere inside Toledo was perfect. The restaurant opens at noon, and when the doors opened we were warmly greeted and welcomed into a beautifully decorated, spacious dining area. Our coats were checked and we were escorted to a dining room toward the back of the house. The waiter wasted no time in taking our orders and was most attentive throughout our stay. All of our dishes were prepared to perfection: fried calamares, which we shared; mariscada with hot garlic sauce, baked red snapper, and chicken ajillo with hot garlic sauce. We ended the meal with tartufo and lemon sorbet. Because of the theatre start time and its distance from the restaurant during a busy Manhattan holiday weekend, we were a little rushed for time, but we will definitely return to Toledo for lunch or for dinner. It is well staffed with attentive, professional servers and the atmosphere is to family, friends, business associates having a festive time, even without the holidays. There is also a nice bar area at the front. A gentleman who came in right after us was still there as we were leaving. Now joined by a female companion, we exchanged greetings as we departed. Both of them seemed to be familiar with the restaurant and continued to chat with the bartender, which made me think this might be a neighborhood gem. Not a bad place to relax and unwind on a chilly Saturday afternoon. Toledo is closed on Sunday.

If you're looking for a classic Spanish restaurant for quiet conversation, reliable food and attentive service, Toledo is a excellent choice. It's the opposite of trendy; it's old school in a good way.

It’s a good spot to hang out with friends and be able to hear them speak. The food overall was good authentic Spanish fare. I really liked the sangria and all the appetizers. The paella was not bad. The service was a tad slow but they let us hang out without interruptions long after the meal.

The restaurant and staff are a step back in time when service and creating an atmosphere when the diner feels welcome. A friend of the family who is surrounded by attention, great food and liquor. It’s off the beaten track, but well worth the trip!

This restaurant is from another era. The room is all wood and pictures and the staff well dressed. The menu selections are classic Spanish and the wine choices are vast and on the high side. Food quality was good, but there was not a molecule of saffron in the rice of my seafood dish although it was stated to be there.

For those wishing to eat at a Restaurant with a capital R, quiet for conversation, well staffed and with a good menu, this is the place.

We loved our experience at Toledo. White table cloths, beautiful charger-plates, helpful and professional wait staff all added up to a memorable evening. We had paella and it was cooked beautifully. Our waiter recommended just the right wine. This is a wonderful restaurant for a cold winter evening.

Outstanding, incredible paella, with lots of choices. Chef will accommodate any special requests.

One comment -- when I booked it, OpenTable told me the restaurant was fully booked for the time I wanted. However, the restaurant was virtually empty when we arrived (only one other table was occupied),and it remained almost empty throughout the evening. Why?
I hope the restaurant did not lose any diners because they were told it was fully booked.
