Excellent food and service by our waiter Sean. We went there for a casual, anniversary dinner, and will be sure to return again. The tables are rather close to each other so we were initially subjected to a rather loud conversation from an adjacent diner. Fortunately, they departed after our appetizer course, and we enjoyed the remainder of our evening. Many thanks to our waiter for the complimentary, delicious dessert, it was most thoughtful.

What should have been an excellent dinner turned out to be fair to good.

Went to dinner with another couple. Sat down right away. The place is bright with nice ambience, but can get load due to the large glass windows that look out on to the golf course

It too a while for the waiter to come over and he was quite jovial, and was more of a salesman, than a wait person. We ordered several appetizers and waited to order our entrees, so we could sit and talk. The appetizers arrived; crunchy shrimp roll and ceviche mixo. The shrimp roll was ok, not much taste and the ceviche was a bit spicy, but I loved it. Someone ordered the chicken soup, was good, but a bit to plain for my taste.

It took a while for our waiter to find us again and we ordered the cod, short rib, latin skirt steak and paella special, plus the pork belly Mac and cheese. The entrees took a while. All arrived cool not hot and the skirt steak went back and they forgot the mac and cheese. By the time the skirt steak re-emerged from the kitchen everyone else was about done. It was only marginally better and a bit touch, skirt steak tends to be. I suggest if you order it, get it medium so the little extra cooking has a bit more time to break it down.

In the end the short rib was very tasty as was the mac and cheese. The other dish’s were ok, but nothing to write home about. We passed on the deserts which did sounded good and were a bit of a hard sell, too.

For the price it’s over rated, but it’s a place to see and be seen.

The red snapper was fresh and awesome. My husband’s fusion strip steak was melting in my mouth and seasoned so good. I wished their portions were a little bit more. With our 2 entree we had to order a sushi to share to be filled and we are small people , not big eaters really. Smile. BuT we’ll be back again for a fine a date when we’re in town.

 (Denver)·Dined on November 26, 2017

Starting with the decor (Southwestern eclectic) and the menu (varied latin american and asian) the concept is certainly unique. The bread was served warm and was delicious. Appetizers-the lamb kabobs, calamari, grilled avocado and sea bass ceviche were very good. For entrees we ordered the street style snapper, the ribs and the crunch roll. Unfortunately they arrived lukewarm but were flavorful. The street corn and mac and cheese sides were also good. We finished with espresso (which was also served lukewarm) and the Dulce de leche crepes with salted caramel ice cream (delicious). The plates were whisked away much too quickly throughout the meal, with food still on them. Twice I asked that my plate not be taken away yet. Overall, if those issues are improved upon Toro will be top notch. Not yet though.

This restaurant is part of Fairmont but not located at the hotel itself. Plenty of parking at night. The live music pipped into the outside dining area was very loud to the point that it was difficult to have a conversation with my tablemates. Several items ordered from the bar were out of stock. Average to above average dining experience but will probably not return as nothing special about the experience

We came to do some rum tasting, along with some small bites, and were very pleased. We started with some excellent cocktails and then dove into the menu. There were great food choices, including a variety of sides, appetizers, and "suviche" (a mashup of sushi and ceviche). We had heard about their "Rum Princesa" but she was off this night; however, John at the bar was very knowledgeable, personable, and helpful as we navigated their rum list. They must have trouble keeping up, because they have far more rum varieties that the menu indicates, and John put together some custom tasting flights to meet our requests. I loved that they had $3 fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies for dessert, because sometimes you are full but want just a little something, and not a huge dessert. I don't know why they talk about Central and South American influences...it seems more like a mix of Mexican, Caribbean, and Asian. But the food was very good. We plan to go back and try more rums!

we had reservations and there were a number of vacant tables when we arrived. The host was insistent that we be seated next to the band. When we explained that we would be unable to hear to converse and wished to be seated at a vacant table away from the music the host was adamant that we could not be seated elsewhere and that the vacant tables were reserved for later that evening. We were insistent and seated ourselves at one of the tables away from the music. After that "table" incident, both the supper and service were very good. We have dined at Toro previously and enjoy the menu.

Its unfortunate that my experience wasn't good. I had been to Toro once before and really enjoyed the food and cocktails. Made a 7pm reservation and wondered why my friends and I were being rushed to order. Kitchen was closing at 7:30. When Toro called to confirm my reservation they should have told me. Our food was less than stellar because we had to rush and order. I know my friends who were looking forward to trying Toro will not give it a try again which is ashame since they practically live at Bourbon Steak for dinner.

The decor is pleasant, but in a "next to the golf course" way. The strength is the rum bar, which we don't drink.

But, the service was really outstanding. We were visiting for our anniversary and everyone made us feel welcome. The beet salad was terrific and I'm a midwestern guy! Good entrees. Fantastic desert.

We thoroughly enjoyed Toro.
