First the food was very good to excellent. The reason for the 4 stars is the service. If I could I would give it 3.5 stars. We went on a Wed night with an hour wait for a table. We decided to eat at the bar. Yes the bar was full but there was 2 to 3 people working a... More

Our party of 5 had an excellent dinner at Toro on Tuesday night. They do a marvelous job at making you feel at home and most of all they prepare food that is just awesome. The service level we had at this restaurant surpasses many high end restaurant. Good job and will without a doubt return on my next visit... More

This is also my first negative review on TripAdvisor. My wife and college age son went to Toro because of good recommendations on this website and a great reference in Travel & Leisure. We were visiting our son who is a student at Northeastern University. I knew that Toro did not take reservations, so we figured that we would head... More

This is the first bad review I have ever put on TA, but our experience at this restaurant was so poor I had to. We arrived at the restaurant, which looked small but attractive and trendy and it was full which we consider is usually a good sign. We were told it would be about 40 mins wait for at... More

We were referred to this restaurant by the hotel clerk and we were so happy we listened. There are no reservations so we arrived just before 5:00 in order to get a table for the first seating. Drinks in the bar to start and they were very good. A table on the sidewalk with a little breeze and some shade,... More

My friend had suggested this place to me before our trip to Boston and since it was a short walk from our B&B we decided to try it out. We got there at the start of the supper time rush and being only two people we were seated right away. The atmosphere inside was great, and the waitresses were very... More

I was really excited to try this restaurant on my trip because a couple of locals recommended it. We went for lunch on Tuesday afternoon with our airbnb host, as a thank you treat for our amazing stay in Boston. Service: terrible. The waiter was immediately disappointing. He seemed completely disinterested in anything to do with human interaction. We were... More

I have been a regular at Toro for the past 4 years. TAPAS style , great small plates. Love the corn on the cob, patata bravas. Great wine selection and wonderful casual atmosphere. Be ready to queue up as this place is always busy.

My girlfriend and I came here for a late night dinner, we were greeted by a overflowing restaurant! There was an >1 hour wait, which was frustrating, but totally understandable. Also peeked our interest as to why the place was packed, must be something worth while! We grabbed some drinks down the street while we waited. Pleasently surprised, we recieved... More
