Toro Toro D.C. Ratings and Reviews
I was actually quite disappointed by a lot of the tapas that we ordered; however, we did enjoy the beef tacos, ceviche, mushroom flatbread, and the 'pan' that comes to the table was delicious! Now; as for the other items, I RETURNED the tortilla soup(it was awful), the arroz chaufa didn't have a drop of salt, the lomo saltado didn't have a drop of salt, the empanadas with corn were OKAY...... I have been to plenty of tapa-style restaurants, Latino, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Peruvian..... and quite frankly TORO TORO wasn't good.... as much as I wanted to love it we didn't even like it. I have never left a negative review, but we were so dissatisfied!! I'm sorry..........
I came across Toro Toro last minute and my experience here was amazing! The food was delicious, the service was great and the atmosphere vibrant! I have nothing but great things to say about Toro Toro! I will definitely be going back soon! My compliments to all the staff and the chef.
Brunch: hot food and coffee were cold, options were ok, restaurant was very loud and noisy but not in a fun energetic way. Service was good, servers were very nice and responsive, plates were cleared promptly as it is a buffet brunch and table can get cluttered quickly and even though we were late for our reservation they still seated us right away.
Visited twice so far and love this place, love their food, love going down stairs to dance to the DJ music, our favorite dessert is la bomba it’s ice cream scoops with sweet sauces and a chocolate cover that just falls on ur table and it all falls out beautifully
Had a great dining experience at Toro Toro. The food quality was excellent and the fusion tastes were well thought out and planned. We had a small issue with one of our dishes and the manager came and personally addressed it well beyond what was necessary. We were all very impressed with their level of customer service. Great choice when dining in D.C.
Went to Toro Toro for my 30th birthday celebration -- we were a group of 8. We opted to do the tapas experience ($49/person) and that's where things got a little confusing. I'd say 6 times out of 10, we were brought food that we did NOT order, while they were holding back on what we had actually ordered. Finally, it came to a point where some of the order never came out, and we were told by the waitress that they can't bring food just for us to take home. Like what?? We ordered, and are paying for that food. If it bothers you so much, we can take a bite out of everything and box up the rest... The rational was lacking there.
Then the waitress charged my sister 3 different times, and every time she's called the restaurant, the manager has been quick to offer her a free meal and drinks but she's yet to receive her money back. The dinner was on Saturday and it is now Wednesday! I chose this place because I'd previously been there for brunch, but gotta say -- Shady, very shady Toro Toro!
The food didn't have as much flavor as I would have thought. We ordered pork belly tacos, pancetta brussel sprouts, and braised short rib arepas. The flavor was very bland. Pork belly needs basic seasoning and we felt there was absolutely none. The pancetta brussel sprouts had a sour taste to them. The churros had more of a soft, donut texture, and not crunchy like other churros I've had. The restaurant itself is very nice and has a great ambiance, but the food could be better.
Music was too loud for us. Even a notch down would have been more enjoyable. Food was very good and the service was good. Our female server was courteous but not friendly. Not many diners there. When we left, the male and female employees at the front were busy talking and didn't say thank you for coming in or even acknowledge us. Employees should never underestimate how much their behavior can affect a dining experience.
