We got to the restaurant 20 minutes after it opened and had an hour and a half wait. Places that don't take reservations drive me nuts. We waited at the BBQ place down the street after a few of the other bars nearby didn't quite cut it. We were seated and seen by our waitress right away. We ordered some... More

We went to this restaurant on Friday night, and we waited about one hour to come in. After getting seat, we asked wine recommendation, the recommendation wine taste was so good. (2nd wine was also good) We felt all foods are salty and a bit expensive, but Paella and House Smoked Coppa Steak were so good. We should order them... More

On a Tuesday night just after 6 pm we were seated immediately in spite of the crowd. Timing was good for us. The decision to go here was last minute after finding a 2-hour wait at Ox a couple of blocks away. Turns out, it was a lucky turn of events. We are familiar with tapas dining and understood how...

Went here for dinner tonight w my husband and arrived 30min before opening to seal a spot! We got the small charcuteria platter which did not disappoint (came w duck mousse, chorizo, pate, house made pickles, mustard, and bread), paella toro (great except the mussels were slightly under and clams were under), bacon wrapped dates (good but sweeter than I...

All in all a great experience at this cozy restaurant. A bit far from downtown, about a $15 cab ride. We waited quite a while for a table but it was so worth it! Some of the portions were quite small but definitely packed a punch in flavour. Service was outstanding and our waitress made the experience so from good... More

Went with a group of 16 and ordered about 20 different items. Everything was super - I even enjoyed brussels sprouts, which is a first in my entire life. The meats melted in your mouth, they were so tender We introduced ourselves to some new wines and cavas that were good and reasonably priced. You definitely need reservations if you... More

Toro Bravo has been on our "must try" list for quite some time. My husband and I chose to celebrate our joint birthday and we traditionally seek out restaurants that provide a tasting menu. Our dining experience was fantastic. We were treated to seats observing the kitchen which provided us with entertainment throughout the meal. Once we ordered, the plates... More

I love tapas. They are just the perfect size for me if I were dining alone yet if I have company, a few plates and I get a taste of everything I find interesting. I leave sated without feeling overly guilty. For a grownup dinner, my friends and I went to Toro Bravo. Having heard that they get really busy,... More
