Great atmosphere, superb waiters, good portions of interesting food. Bone marrow was awesome and came with crispy toast loaded with beef cheeks) highly recommend it! Pre drinks if you are going to 1oak, avenue or meat packing

The food, as always, was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised by the service because last time I went, it was extremely slow. The restaurant was not full at 7pm on a Saturday but the service was very quick. We had the tuna, panini, quesadilla, salad, and the beef tacos. The quesadilla was definitely my favorite. Such great flavors. I wish... More

Love sharing tapas with my family here. Glass of wine, 2-4 orders to share and of course dessert! Spicy shrimp is great! Roasted lamb and they have specials. If you like tapas, you will want to visit Toro in Buffalo on Elmwood.

Great beer selection, and wonderful drink/martini menu. I love when restaurants have cocktail menus in addition to wine and beer lists! Local beers were available, which was nice. We had wonderful service and were glad we had reservations as the place was packed. We ordered 3 of the vegetarian tapas-Toro salad (a special that night) with a Sangria dressing, a... More

Toro has good food and a nice bar. I like the contemporary, open atmosphere and the bench seating.Their salads are particularly good. The Tapas style gives you a chance to share several plates, although there are always entrees on the menu. You oder both rich food and lighter fare, which makes it a good choice for groups.

My husband and I visited here tonight and made a reservation ahead of time, which was good, as they were very busy. The service was good and there were some interesting items on the menu. However, we noticed their "signature" dish was paella, so we decided to try that. What a disappointment! The rice was extremely bland, and it lacked... More

This was our first visit to a tapas bar/restaurant & we expected much more. I thought "tapas" meant large portions to share but these portions were barely enough for one person let alone the table (all four of us). We tried the bison quesidillas & did not like them at all...you have to like that kind of meat. We also... More

I bought a groupon along with 2 of my girlfriends for this place 20 $ for $40 worth of food and drinks.. It never stated one per table, only one per visit. The manager told us we could not use the groupons even though he understood that the groupon did not state that. The manager said the only way he... More

Toro has been one of our faves since they opened. Dinner there tonight was the most disappointing. We sat in the "booth" tables against the wall. The cushion on the bench/wall sidewas filthy, it was stained & had several crumbs on it. After we sat on it we noticed the fresh bread plates at our table settings were dirty with... More
