Celebrated our anniversary here, I have never had Tapas before. We had the best seat in the house where we could watch these amazing dishes being made. We had also been seated right next to the window where the food came out and we asked every server what the dish was. They were all so gracious and professional and described... More

I love this quirky restaurant, you never know if you are going to share a table or not, just dont sit in the closet, you will know if you are.

My best friend and I came here to celebrate a good friend of our's birthday. It was quite crowded when we came and was told that the wait would be around 45 minutes to an hour, the host said she could call us when our table is almost ready. We had heard great things about Toro Bravo so didn't mind... More

Met friends for 5 pm seating. Bustling and LOUD!. We decided to do the Chef's choice for $45 per person of variety of tastings as they had been before and wanted to try it. We ordered drinks $10-13 a piece. I specifically stated I had an almond allergy, but the waitress said the kitchen staff could accommodate that in the... More

I don't know if it is authentic, but the food was OK, not as tasty as I would have expected based on the reviews here, not bad either.

Tried to get in on a Friday night. Lines were way too long, so we returned on a Monday evening. Arrived at 5:30pm & we were seated immediately. Charming ambiance, great music! Our server, Ryan, was excellent. We started with a few small plates- Fried Eggplant, Heirloom Beans, & Beef Cheeks. ALL GOOD, the Beef Cheeks were like butter! We... More

We enjoyed our visit here. The place is not too big and tables are small and close to each other. The service was excellent and the environment puts you in a good mood. The food is very good (not excellent). It seems there is always a line, so we followed other readers recommendation and after signing up we went to... More

HOOOOOOLLLYYY TOLEDO! This place blew my mind. When my foodie friend said we had to be there at 5pm on the dot to get a spot or we'd wait 2 hours, I didn't believe him. We got there at 5:03pm and did in fact wait 2 hours, and right when I had my first bites of our amazing dinner, I... More

A colleague and I met for dinner at Toro Bravo; just off MLK I wasn't expecting the charming neighborhood nor the charming ambience I we found. We split a bottle of wine and several tapas- don't miss the cauliflower!

My partner and I came on a Monday evening. Luckily we only waited for a table to come free for about 15mins as the restaurant was full. We ordered the $40 chefs choice and glad we did! Sampling all the house favourites and delicacies, It just kept coming. Definitely the way to go, the dishes were brought out in the... More
