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.

“Beautiful Location. Delicious Food. Even Better Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

I brought my work girlfriends here for our first Christmas lunch, as we are a new company in Miami, and I'm certain this will not only be our annual Christmas lunch spot, but our spot for many other occasions as well. This was not my first time visiting Toro Toro, and definitely wont be my last. I've had nothing but positive experiences, fantastic service and excellent food here. A must visit if you're in Miami, and you absolutely have to try their decadent lunch buffet. It's not one of those stuffy and uber expensive restaurants you go to in South Beach with hopes of spotting Kim Kardashian while you down duck pizza, caviar and Dom P. It's classy, tasty, the vibe is super chic and the value is 100% worth it. You want delicious food at a good value? Toro Toro is your place. A spot that's good for the whole family, yet maintains a sense of exclusivity as well. I'll be back, you can count on it! And if you're smart, you'll try it out too.

“Worst service in Miami”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

We were a party of three, a waiter came to get our drink order, brought a couple of wine choices for us to try, but did not come back to follow up. Then a waitress introduced herself as our waitress brought our wine and took our order.
After that, it went downhill.Two sides and our of the main courses was served first, we waited around 10 min for the other two main courses to be served, one of the sides was missing, had to tell the waitress ,another waiter passing by and the busboy. The third side came 20 min later, at that point I had already finished my dinner, so I sent it back. The waitress was MIA all this time and made no effort to explain the delay. The manager came to get our dessert order, you can imagine how terrible the service was when the manager has to step in.The ordeal took 2 1/2 hrs.
The food was very good, but the service ruined our night out.
