Description: Located at 100 Chopin Plaza, Toro Toro is celebrated chef/restaurateur Richard Sandoval’s creative Pan-Latin interpretation of a contemporary steakhouse. This sophisticated and sexy concept is modeled after Sandoval’s Dubai Toro Toro, which was named “Best Latin” and “Best New Restaurant” by Time Out. The restaurant’s selection of meats, carved tableside rodizio-style, along with an array of small plates, composed main-plates and a la carte steaks draws foodies while Toro Toro’s buzz-worthy bar, emphasizing Latin-inspired cocktails made with ultra-premium Latin spirits and a well-curated collection of fine wines from around the world, draws the cocktail crowd. COMPLIMENTARY VALET PARKING is available for dinner and brunch at Toro Toro.

“Great Turkey Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This turkey burger was so good that I had to have it second time during trip. The second time it was burned a bit. The great staff replaced it and took care of my meal. They also have a great bar and cocktail menu. This is more than just hotel food even though its in a hotel.

“Great brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

went to the new restaurant at the Intercontinental for Sunday Brunch. First up, the Bloody Mary made by the bar manager with the great personality, Joey (female), was excellent. Bloody Marys can be very heavy but this was perfect!
The menu has a good selection of brunchy items and the service and food were both great.

“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner at Toro Toro on our vacation to Miami last week. It was the best food of all the restaurants we went to and we went to many nice restaurants on this trip. The service was fabulous. Our waitress, Brandy, was very friendly. We weren't familiar with some of the things on the menu & she explained them all to us. We tried many new things & everything was excellent. The mixologist suggested some of his inventions after seeing we had ordered gin cocktails. He made a cucumber cocktail & a berry cocktail that were both great. The chef came out to see if everything was to our liking. Everyone was very attentive & friendly. On top of all that, the food was amazing. Very delicicious!

“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

There is a great ambiance with an open and modern setting; music is subtle and inviting. We were greeted by Ariel and Matt who were very professional and warm. Daniel, our server was very knowledgeable on the menu and made great recommendations on wine and food. The tuna ceviche and chicharron de camarones were delicious starters, and the quality of the main course churrasco skewer was bar none. I'm very much looking forward to returning for future quality meals and service!

“One of the best restaurant experiences in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

From the beginning the ambiance is great. Everyone is friendly, I was greet it by the manager Ariel himself at the host stand, automatically made my wife and myself feel special, the menu have a very interesting fusion of Ibero American cuisines (Spain, Cuban, Peruvian, Brazilian), the tiradito, tuna ceviche among others where our fAvorite cold dishes, I must say from the hot ones the chicharron de camaron is the best. The entrees I must say we incline for the churrasco dish, the whole experience was phenomenal, Ariel kept on checking on us, Matt didn't let our glasses get empty; kudos Matt and last but not least the assistance of Daniel was the top of the icing! Great insider of the restaurant excellent recommendations on the menu and a professional attention, is a must if you are in the Miami downtown area, to stop on this restaurant..
