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.

A bit of a time warp, but in a good way. Dining room a bit crowded and not particularly attractive. Veal, Caesar salad and other food items very good to excellent. Wine...okay. Service friendly and very good.

Pretty lax on Covid protocols....cursory check of vaccine cards, most people entering and leaving without masks, half of staff without masks, many people hanging out at tables and bar without masks for long periods while not eating or drinking.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Toledo. We ordered Paella, which is one of our favorite Spanish dish.. and it was the best Paella we've ever had in US.

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.

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!
