A must if you stop by the course...the menu is amazing. It was hard to decide what to order. We split the Tuna roll and a burger. Both were great. The view of the course is amazing. The inside area is nice too. There were two people playing acoustic guitar and singing when we were there on a Sunday afternoon. They made the experience even better!

We went for lunch. There were so many good things on the menu. It was hard to decide what to order. We had the tuna, salad, the fried rice, and the beef tacos. All were amazing! Highly recommend.

The menu boasts latin inspired cuisine from an amazing grilled avacodo to sushi rolls with cilantro and jalapeno. We were very happy to have made the drive as the meals and service were top notch.

This was our second time dining and we were disappointed with the service this time. We had the same server but she seemed to be busy with a large party inside the restaurant (we were outside). The food was still good, but the service was a huge disappointment.

Toro never disappoints, even on a major holiday. So many fine restaurants suffer when pushed to capacity by a major holiday, in this case, New Year's Eve. But not Toro! Service, food and drink quality, the entire experience was special, despite the sheer volume of diners. Kudos to Toro.

Admittedly wary of Toro after having a poor experience at La Hacienda, but our experience did not disappoint. Celebrated an anniversary here. Enjoyed drinks at the lively bar ahead of dinner. Menu reflected local flavors and dishes. Food preparation and quality was great. Service was excellent. Views of the mountains on one side, and the golf course and sunset on the other. Highly recommend. Returned again for Saturday brunch.

We went to this place based on the great reviews online and quite frankly it was an awful experience. Everything was seasoned oddly, and all the sauces were way too sweet. We ordered the crunchy shrimp and surf and turf roll. The shrimp was way too heavily breaded and inedible because of how salty it was. The roll was blah. We also ordered three entrees, including the miso cod and the Christmas special. Both of them had sauces that overpowered the meat and fish- it was just too sweet and odd tasting. We are not picky eaters so this was a thoroughly disappointing time for everyone. Not to mention the price is way too high for the quality of food they have to offer.

Our server ruined our Xmas eve experience. Totally unprofessional, eye rolling, entrees came out before appetizers, blamed the kitchen for her mistakes. Shouldn’t be employed at a higher end establishment. The manager took drinks/appetizers off the bill once we talked to her. Food was great though. And the busboy Nick was exceptional. He should be the server.

It was my birthday and the coldest day of the year in Phoenix. We were cold because we were given the table with our backs to the large open entrance door and then the waiter never told us the sauce served with the bread was spicy or that the calamari we ordered included fried jalapeños. Both times my mouth and throat were burned and I coughed for a very long time pretty much ruining my experience. The place seems nice with an interesting menu, but I’d be reluctant to retry it for myself or recommend d it to others because of my experience .

The Rum menu at Toro did not disappoint! We were enticed to go to Toro because we wanted to take the tour of “Christmas at The Princess”... The “suviche” was some of the best tasting sushi ever. Generous portion, one roll can be easily shared. And the flamenco guitar combo was very pleasant... I was happy that it lasted for more than just one or two sets. It’s easy to drop a fair bit of money, especially if you try the rum tastings. But it was a beautiful experience!

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
