A great meal for me Is followed by great recommendations for you

This is a nice looking restaurant that is deceptively large and includes about 13 seats at the bar for drinks or dinner. Before getting my appetizer, I snacked on chips & salsa ($4), which were very good. If you don't want the lightly spicy salsa, ask for the green tomato dip. For my appetizer I... read more

The food was great! We went for the prix fix menu at $55 a person, the custom menu they designed for us was beautiful. It comes with the trio guacamole and warm chips- tasty! The best one is the guac with pomegranate. For entrees we ordered, short ribs in a mole sauce, carne asada and manchego cheese black truffle quesadilla... More

Great guacamole trio with chips! Brussel sprouts are the best I've had with cheese and toasted. Open brick oven to view while food is being made.

There were a total of 10 people in our party including an infant! This is not a very large space but they accommodated us well despite being a very busy time for them - we did have a reservation of course. We ordered several small plates and had a variety of margaritas and other cocktails. The food was absolutely delicious.... More

On 50th in between Broadway and 8th on a block with a variety of business entrances, parking entrance, and restaurants - has a small entrance. Very nice atmosphere - two stories, nice decor. Service was efficient. Separate menu for vegetarians - including a Quinoa Paella. Portions were on the small side so a side dish might be wise - and... More

We had Guac and ceviche to start, both were delicious but the ceviche was out of this world. The short ribs I had as main course was super tender but if you want some super yummy, authentic paella, you're better off going to Soccarat. The paella we ordered were just served on a dish and is completely missing the crust... More

This was our second time dining at Toloache. The first time was a family brunch and this time was lunch. I had the Camarones Toloache roasted garlic shrimp, over a chayote squash spaghetti salad. It was light and delicious. My daughter had the Pollo Toloache chicken, which was a chipotle marinated chicken breast, which she devoured. Our server was absolutely... More

Let me start by saying the woman behind the bar was totally unfriendly. I ordered a margarita strait up with extra salt, from a place filled with tequila do you expect your margarita to be made from a mix...no not for those prices. So she asked how I like my drink and I said it tastes like lime juice and... More

Excellent choice for lunch in the Theater District. We shared a spicy guacamole to start, followed up by a selection of tacos, quesadilla and a quinoa salad. The star taco was the chapulines , chopped up grasshopper , crunchy texture and a smoky flavor - delicious. The other tacos we shared were shrimp and pork. We followed up by sharing... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
