Eel sushi!

My work crew enjoyed our Christmas party here and it was delicious. Half of us had the sushi and the rest enjoyed the fireball display courtesy of the hibachi chef. I hear the stir fried rice was exceptional, but I went for the nigiri sushi platter. SO good. I cannot wait to visit this place again... read more

Went to Toro to meet a friend for happy hour. Walking in to the place, I noticed a heavy, odd smell. My friend had been here before and said it was good, so I opted to rationalize the smell as the hibachi cooktop. We sat down, and it took a good 15 minutes before our waiter greeted us. We ordered...

We had hibachi for a large family group. Drinks arrived quickly. The Long Island Iced Tea was strong and tasty. We split an order of chicken and scallops. Our chef was pleasant. Onion Soup was tasty. The ginger sauce was too watery but flavorful. The scallops were cooked just right chicken was moist the vegetables were tender. The fried rice... More

My wife and friends like this restaurant, I am impartial. Seems like the ginger dressing on the bento box salad messes up my stomach and the MSG they put on the food. The sushi is good, the crunchy roll and others. Mixed feelings on this restaurant.

I'm vegetarian so I don't partake of sushi. The fried rice was amazing. I ordered two servings and the last I took as a to-go order and it was still amazing. The vegetable tempura was also good although I am unaccustomed to having it served without soy sauce. It was virtual mountain of sweet potato slices and zucchini all fried... More

This was always my go-to for sushi on the NW side of town. The fish was fresh and the entrees are delicious. The service has always been terrible: One occasion, the waiter forgot my request for soy paper on my sushi roll and it came with seaweed. When I requested the fix, he asked if I could please eat it... More

We went for lunch with a sushi craving. The sashimii was not great, I had a couple of tough pieces that were hard to chew. I ordered a Lunch combo 3. The sushi was ok. The salad came and was absolutely swimming in dressing. I didn't even attempt to eat it. They offered another one but my lunch came out... More

I love going to Toro. My DH can have his sashimi, our friend can have her Dragon rolls and I can have a shrimp tempura bento box that I end of sharing with everyone else! So much wonderful food! We have never had a bad experience here. The service is good and the food is divine. One day we'll have... More

It's alarming to me how the management continuously mistreats regular customers.... challenging them... nickel and dining them.... charging for tap water on a $75 bill--really???? Do you really want to treat a regular customer that way that's spent many thousands of dollars at your establishment. Simply ridiculous!!!
