The margaritas were one of the best I have ever had. The lobster tacos were my favourite, but the guacamole and short rib quesadilla were also delicious. So many good choices! If you’re feeling brave, try the grasshopper tacos. It was a bit expensive, but...More

More sophisticated than your average Mexican place, in the heart of the theatre district (same block as Gershwin Theatre, where "Wicked" is currently playing). Three choices for guacamole (plain, medium, and spicy), all good -- suggest ordering the "trio", so you can try all three....More

We needed to get a meal before going to a Broadway show, so found Toloache on TripAdvisor. Love the interior of this place! The staff and service was excellent and the meals exquisite!

Phenomenal Mexican food, and great mezcalitas. The line up is usually long, being in the theatre district, but well worth it. Grab a seat at the bar if it’s too busy. The food is great and lots of excellent vegetarian options.

This restaurant was more casual than I expected, and the food was routine. I had shrimp that was overdone. The guacamole was good.

Even the first floor is very crowded so navigating a wheelchair will be a problem. The entry is always packed.

Early, early! They’re very busy and service isn’t quick. Leave yourself enough time to get over to the theater.
